Good Poll OP.

Its a tough one to call but I picked the Bruins. Funny thing is last game I kinda started feeling sorry for the Canucks....they are such a skilled team and the Bruins are really beating them up. It was sad to see Marchand punching one of the twins (I think it was Daniel) in the face repeatedly without any recourse. Absolutely pathetic.

I've been pulling for Boston the entire series until last game and now I'm not sure. I have friends and family in Vancouver who are ready to dance in the streets, so for them I hope its the Canucks. But as a hockeyfan...I gotta say Boston is more deserving based on this series. They have outplayed Vancouver, outhit them, outscored them and have shown the desire and grit to win...Vancouver has displayed less than good sportsmanship for sure and Tim Thomas deserves to carry the Cup based on his stellar playoff performance. I also would love to see Kaberle hoisting the Cup...such a classy player.

May the best team win tonight!

I got a lot of flack from my friends/family about cheering for the non-Canadian team, but I cannot stand the Canucks. In actuality, I can't stand both teams, but my hatred for Boston only stems from them gloating about not needing Kessel (and not having to mortgage much of their future) to win the cup.

Vancouver on the other hand will probably not stop gloating about their win for years to come. As the first Canadian team to win it in almost 20 years, the already boisterous Canucks fans will be even more so if they capture a cup. We won't hear the end of it.

From the lesser of two evils, I pick the Bruins. I want the Leafs to be the first to bring Canada a cup in almost 2 decades. That national accolade along with the 40+ years of Leaf fan deprivation will mean it will be the grandest achievement and celebration of them all.

So yea, Boston.

Tim Thomas deserves the Cup as well as the Conn Smythe. he has been heroic this season and playoff. I have difficulty finding another player on both teams worthy of either honour.

I'm going with Boston. It would be great to see Thomas and Kaberle lift the cup. One of these teams will win which will be a shame, but one will lose, which will be nice to see.

Originally I was neutral, if anything leading towards Van.

But their fans just irk me... I dont want to see the cup come to Canada brought by the Nucks and have all their fans talking about how they're "Canada's team" when in reality we know thats not the case.

I also have really warmed up to Timmy T, he deserves a cup the way he's been playing. Kabby also deserves one, even if he's been less effective than he was in TO.

I hate to say it but Boston deserves the W IMO.

It's kind of complicated:

I don't want either to win, but I want Boston to lose more, though I think the Sedins and Luongo are completely undeserving of a cup win, and Boston deserves it more. If that makes sense.

any/all Leafs fans should only vote for Vancouver ...else, your voting on us getting the worse of 2 draft picks, and that 1 spot can be a HUGE difference in who you pick.

Burke says 15 to 50 is similar; and he is going to trade up anyways!

I guess for what Tomas did for the Leafs, waiving his NTC, and for us to make out like bandits on that trade. I will be extremely happy for Tomas if he raises the cup.

I would much rather see Tim Thomas, Kaberle, and Recchi raising the cup than Kesler, and the twins. There's alot of hatred between us and Boston, but I respect them much more than Vancouver right now.

Go Bruins! Although I don't get along with their fans, I have no reason to hate their players. I love the style the play and I like their never say die attitude. I wish Horton could play so badly because he has been one of my favourite players to watch in this years playoffs. So clutch. I can see the game being close and the Canucks scoring the game winner in the third but hopefully I'm wrong. Coming into these playoffs I thought seeing a Bruin lift a cup would be a horrible site but seeing Kaberle and Thomas lift that cup would be awesome! Timmy for Conne Smythe no matter what!
