Who do you want to face for the Cup?

Postby Cornuck » Wed May 25, 2011 11:06 am

With luck, the Bruins and Bolts will go to 7.

Also, if anyone finds the schedule, please post it.

PS: Who's happy we have home for all 4 series? :D

Tampa. Not entirely sure why, but my perception is that we may have trouble with the size/style of the Bruins. On the other hand, we just eliminated San Jose who are pretty big and physical themselves... :eh:

Tampa's scoring is a little worrisome. I think it would make for a better series, but I'd rather face Boston.

Tampa would have a LOT of travel, which could benefit a team that is used to traveling. But in the end, I'd like to see us take on an Original Six team.

Either way, I like our chances. I don't really care - I just want the East to go to 7 games. :D

Boston Bruins.. original 6.. Bobby Orr.. Cam Neely is president.. Love to see the Canucks win the Stanley over them
Tampex Bay? who cares !
Both teams are strong.. Lightning more talent.. Bruins tougher with great goaltending..
Doesn't matter really its going to be GREAT !!

Boston just because of the northeast connection, Islanders, Rangers and finally Bruins who fits most in the degree of width.

I don't care any less. Both have their pros and cons. I just want a 5 game series with the Canucks being the victors.
GO CANUCKS GO !!!

Note: Boston's PP is sitting 7.1% in the playoffs on 56 opportunities :D

Well, way to go Bolts! We got our game seven.

What I don't like is that the NHL in its infinite wisdom starts the series 5 DAYS after the Eastern Conference game 7. What the hell? They gave the Canucks 2 days between Chicago and Nashville. Is this actually all for CBC to get game 2 on Saturday?
