Predicting the Playoffs: Stanley Cup Finals

Which team wins?



#3 St. Louis Blues (give legitimate reasons why)

OR

#3 Carolina Hurricanes (give legitimate reasons why)






OR


Don't count this vote, I'm just homering away.




I'm going Blues. Good depth up front, solid emerging young d-men in Pietrangelo and Shattenkirk, and a good goaltending.

Blues.

Realistically this vote for SCF probably should have been Blues vs Rangers which is more of a tossup to me... I'd probably lean Rangers on that one. I like our chances of making noise in the playoffs, and anything can and will happen in them, but the Rangers are probably the most complete team in the league right now.

Why not the canes? Ward is an awesome playoff goalie and we have more elite scorers than them. Canes in 6 (Im assuming STL has home ice?)

Canes. Why not at this point. Although, I would have chosen a Rangers/Kings final with Rangers winning if it was my choice.

Yessir. I know we're all stuck in shiny new toy mode right now, but the Rangers are as good or better than the Canes at pretty much every position, especially defense.

I just had to go with 'Canes. Blues are pretty sound defensively, Canes get the upperhand offensively, and I'd give the edge to the 'Canes in goal with Ward. There are so many intangibles that you could pick on, but honestly it's a poll in a 'Canes messaging board. If we can't win the Cup hypothetically in these 'Predictions" then how can you hope for them to win in reality? idk I'm overtired

Well, some crazy people took the pens over the rangers in the ECS, so here we are.

I honestly think this would be a fairly close series. Canes have edge on offense by a decent bit, Blues on Defense by a fair margin, and Ward in goal by a small margin. I think it's 6 or seven games, and bounces determine the winner. And since I'm a Canes fan and I want to believe, I'm voting homer vote.
