Caps Vs Sharks in the cup finals

Caps win it.

Pens and Hawks are not even an after thought

I really, really like Ottawa as a chance to come out of the East. They're the forgotten team that is a true contender. Bob Mackenzie thinks so too.

have you seen their bottom six?

On topic, maybe, but doubtful. Penguins won't be doing much of anything if these injuries continue

Montreal has been looking great lately as well as Boston. Those are my two favorites from the east.

Chicago look like the favorite from the West however Oilers and the Ducks playing strong right now.

Parity in the regular season is a lot different than parity in the playoffs, besides last year recently Kings and Blackhawks were taking turns as Cup Champs. If it is Pittsburgh/Chicago in the Final, then it show parity only means so much

How about instead, they play in an outdoor game. We need more Pens & Caps outdoor games

It'll be someone random like CBJ or an Atlantic team like Ottawa/Montreal.

Look at all the random Stanley Cup final losers of late. Tampa? NJ Devils? Flyers in '10 (loved that squad, but random). Heck even Ottawa made one in the last 10 years or so didn't they?
That Ottawa team won the Presidents' Trophy.

Hope not. Chicago/Pittsburgh are getting boring to watch over and over again.

Gimme Washington vs San Jose.

I don't think it will be the Penguins in the finals. I'm thinking it will be Washington-Chicago, which I'd be cheering for Washington.

Those 2 seem just as likely as anyone else. On the other hand, one particular team, against the field, usually a longshot. (Longshot X2 if you are trying to predict both finalists.)

Boston is a good sleeper pick. They seem to be rounding into form at just the right time

Was that the game where that fire Marshall disguised himself as the goalie and went in and made those killer saves in the third? That was a crazy game. I remember the mascot lying dead in the kitchen. Hockey used to be a lot more entertaining thats for sure.

Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver too!

I agree one or both of these teams get eliminated, but it would be a nice final between two powerhouses.
