I'm not rooting for either of them. I'm just going to enjoy a great series. I like players on both teams, so I won't really have a problem with either of them winning.

Devils

1. Marty will probably retire if he wins
2. JEFF Carter won't win a cup
3. I won't have to hear how we shouldn't have done those trades all offseason

I don't like them and i was glad we got rid of them. meaning carter really. i do miss gags and i like hextall of course. to be honest i wouldn't mind if they eventually won but 1 year after the trades is ridiculous and totally our crappy luck. I was a fan back in the Hrudey, Gretzky days but not these kings.

1. It's the Devils.
2. It's the Devils.
3. It's only slightly better than the Penguins winning.
4. It's the Devils.
5. They destroyed my childhood.
6. Everyone here in the Philly area has Devils fans that have been talking **** since the second round.
7. It's the Devils.
8. It's on par with watching the Rangers.
9. It's the Devils.
10. The 90's.
11. Rather listen to people complain about trades than hear about how we're the one Atlantic team that hasn't won in almost 4 decades over and over.
12. It's the Devils.
13. Martin Brodeur has every record and doesn't need another Cup.
14. Stevens hit on Lindros.
15. IT'S THE ****ING DEVILS.

Has the Atlantic rivalry really lost that much anger and bitterness?

I haven't lost it. I hope they wait a half-century for another Cup.

I hate the Devils but it's in my best interest if they win.

Who cares?

If the Kings win and some Pens fan tries to throw this in my face I'll just respond with the truth, which is I am stoked that the guy who is probably my favorite player of all time, Ron Hextall, finally has the ring he deserves. Hextall, Gagne, & Richards are three of my favorite players of all time. I sincerely hope they win, and as far as I'm concerned, it would be great if the Kings can win every cup the Flyers don't win for the next 15 years.

I'm going to respond with the truth as well...they can come back and rub it in my face when their organization isn't the embarrassment of the NHL. They made a fool of themselves in the national spotlight, and in my opinion, their organization has a long way to go before they make right in the eyes of the hockey world.

I don't want either team to win. I'm a Flyers fan, not a Richards and Carter fan and I hate the Devils.

You guys can handle the obnoxious behavior by Devils fans if they won? They were already obnoxious before.

The Devils. That way, we'd have lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champion, and I want Kovalchuk and Ponikarovsky to win the Cup.

Simon and Mike are the two reasons I want the Kings to win over the Devils.

It would be so much easier if neither could win. Devils though. I still love Simon though. Loved Richards while he was here (hence the 18 in my username) but he is not a Flyers anymore and therefore I dont root for him anymore. Gagne was just loved enough that he is an exception. I just cant hate this Devils team a whole lot. Secretly have a man crush on Parise and Zajac, I saids it.

I'm not even sure Gags would get his name engraved on the Cup.
