Yeah, I can see the Nucks taking this. Their top players are playing so much better right now and their defense is much more experienced. Luongo > Roloson and he's actually looking decent now. Kesler is gonna shut down Lucic-Krecji-Horton and win the Conn Smythe. And if Manny makes a come back, it'll be another boost much like Eric Cole's improbable return when the Draino's won the cup.

My least wanted final was Vancouver Pittsburgh, then Vancouver Montreal, then Vancouver Boston.

Nah, Vancouver outclasses Boston is almost every way. The Sedins are gonna have a field day on Tim The Flop Thomas.

Eh, he's still a 20-year old defenseman in his second year. He has A LOT of development ahead of him.

He's not the immediate stud that some thought, and definitely makes those advocating for him over Tavares look silly, but I think he'll be a very good defenseman for a long, long time.

Hell of a run there by Tampa.

Van-Bos should be a good series.

I think I like more players on Vancouver so I'll be rooting for them. The only player I like on Boston is Krejci.

Great game to watch. feel gutted for Tampa fans.

Looking forward to the SCF, hopefully the Bruins can pull off an upset.

I was rooting for Tampa but I'm going to be rooting for the Bruins so hard. Time for Timmy Thomas to get his cup. Really hurts to see Tampa lose though.

Surrounded by Canucks fans here, and I have a problem with handling their smugness and bragging on a daily basis. Overload, I guess.
So, I'm rooting for the Bruins.
The keep it in the country thing never grabbed me, as in this case I am cheering against a fanbase.

This. Except for the Thomas part. It's not like he's been in the league for so long that he's been aching to get a Cup.

No he hasn't, but there isn't a more humble guy in the game. He's an incredible goal tender and an even better human being. I want him to hold that cup so bad.

I expect this is going to be a close series.

I'd be shocked if it doesn't go at least 6 unless Boston just falls apart in a couple of games early on.

I have a tough time rooting for any Boston team or their fan base; so I'll be rooting for the Canucks who have never won a cup and also lost to us in their last SC finals in 1994.

canucks fans are so cocky they think they're so good even tohugh we beat them in 1994. I do not like luongo and I think he is very shaky but he is a very good goalie but he can't perform under the pressure and i think he is very cocky. i don't know i really don't like either team so i'll be upset no matter who wins.

I posed the same question about 2 weeks ago. However, Luongo is justifiable enough to really not want to see Vancouver win it, which is a shame. I like the Sedins, Kesler, Erhoff.

The fanbase and their goalie really make the team hard to rout for.

I hate their fans and Luongo. Also, I just dislike Canadian hockey fans. They think just because people from their country invented the sport over a hundred years ago, they somehow like it more than I do. Whenever I try saying something, they always try to say they're right and somehow bring up some Canadian ********. The only Canadian team I like is Toronto.

seriously they think canada fans are much more passionate than usa fans that's a joke because we're just as passionate.

Nucks as a team are pretty likeable. It's their fans that people tend to have a problem with.

Agree. Wasn't THAT impressed with him when he played in sweden, he has no edge. I'd have taken Erik Karlsson over him every day in the week.
