Just off the top of my head, the Blackhawks swept their opponents in rounds 2 & 3 before the 1992 Final where they were swept by the Pens.

If that was the case Boston would have scored at least 4 goals a game I think. Yup, it would have been hilarious to see all the flopping MAF does trying to stop the puck.

Yeah, Krejci kneed him in the head about two seconds later... And then Chara cross checked Krejci to block a shot

This. Rooting for whichever team comes out of the west. I hate Boston.

Me too. Kings (long shot at this point) or Bruins. F Chicago, I tried to tell myself I just didn't like them and it had nothing to do 2010 but its just not true and furthermore I never want to see that d-bag Kane hoist the cup again.

8. Weber
9. Toews
10. Datsyuk

I think after that display, and how the season ended, Rask and Ovechkin deserve a look in there (another look in Ovi's case)

Not even a mention of Patrice Bergeron?? The guy is a workhorse and has a lot of skill. Plus his defense is well above average for a forward/center.

Bergie will continue to fly under the radar and make teams pay for underestimating his talent.

I really like Bergeron but there's a handful of centers I would take over him off the top of my head.
-Crosby
-Malkin
-Stamkos
-Giroux
-Datsyuk
-Getzlaf
-Tavares
-Toews

Its going to be hard for them to get full value in return for him if they try to move him. Because they dealt off Staal, they would need a top two center coming back their way in any trade. The Penguins probably would want a haul similar to what the Flyers got for Lindros- a goaltender, two centers, two defensemen, a wing and two #1 draft choices. I can't see any team giving up close to that for Malkin. Even one center, one defenseman, a goal tender, a wing and two #1s would be too much for a team to give up today.
I don't believe that re-signing Malkin to a long term deal will be an easy thing for Pittsburgh. He's going to want a max contract and then Sidney would want his deal upgraded to match that. In the back of my mind, I think that Malkin sees himself as a leader of a team, like Ovey is in Washington, and will want to be in a place where he can be that. In Pittsburgh he just rides shot gun to Crosby.

Bergeron isn't flying under the radar - he won the Selke award last season. The only reason a portion of Bruins fans think he's underrated is because they like to consider him on the same level of Datsyuk/Toews/Kopitar and he's not. He's a great player, don't get me wrong, but I don't think he's a top 10 center, let alone a top 10 player I would build a team around, and personally I think he's rated just fine right now (although if the Bruins win the cup, I'm sure he'll be overrated just like every player on the cup winning team is every year).

I'm pulling for the west in the finals. Boston fans are getting spoiled with championships.

Patriots 2001, 2003, 2004, Red Sox 2004, 2007, Celtics 2008, Bruins 2011.

I don't really share the hatred towards Boston. The only player I don't like on their team is Marchand, everyone else is tolerable. Also, Jagr needs to finish his career by lifting the Cup over his head. I wish it was in the Flyers uniform, but Boston will do. He deserves it.

One Cup for Richards and Carter is enough for me. I couldn't take seeing them win another, especially 2 in a row. The only reason why last year was bearable was because Gagne won it too. That made it all OK.

I really don't want Chicago to win. I'll admit, I'm still bitter over 2010. I think the Flyers deserved the Cup more that year.


Also, Ralph Krueger was fired by the Oilers after one season. Guess they aren't gonna be patient.

Whoever that referee behind the net is, they ought not be working anymore in the NHL. He just decided a series-winning game with an abysmal non-call.

(Yes, I still think its a penalty. Looked like Bickel grabbed / hooked him, throwing him off balance, then Williams lost an edge.)
