Tampa Bay is the more talented team. They also are playing at the top of their team game. They collapse down low in a group of 5 around the net like no team I've seen in a long time. That's commitment and discipline and when talent plays with those two qualities it usually wins. Calgary, bless their overachieving hearts, don't have the depth to match up although they play a great team game as well. They have a really well constructed team and while I think they are "overachieving" they are certainly going to be a good team for a long time as the nucleus is strong and young. Love that defense. Up front, Saprykin has really impressed me in flashes. Gelinas has been great for the 3rd time in his playoff career that I can remember (Edmonton, Carolina, currently.)
This should be a great Cup and I don't care about how they're two lousy TV markets and nobody in the States will supposedly care but I personally can't wait. Love what both teams have accomplished.
Hi All, My godamn computer is down, so I dont get to surf the net as often as I would like. To answer the question though I am pulling for the Flames. I love the way that they play the game. Tampa plays a exciting style as well so as hockey fans we really cannot lose here and as an added bonus for me both teams play their " tough guys and there has been a lot of physical play and Fights.
