Stanley Cup Finals - Predicitons?

Postby Cornuck » Mon May 28, 2012 11:03 am

Anyone plan on watching?

Does Marty have one more Cup in him?

Will Philly win the Cup by trading all of their players to LA?

I just cannot imagine assholes like Doughty, Brown, Williams and Stoll hoisting the Cup. Also, I would love to see Brodeur winning one more before retiring.

I predict an ex Canuck will win the cup.

The road to the finals has been relatively soft for both teams... I honestly don't even have a hunch.
2011..... the one that got away.

Won't be really watching, but hoping New Jersey can win it. Can't stand the smugness of the Kings - would love nothing better than for Doughboy and Brown-hole get filled in and sent to the hospital Cupless.

but....

I think the smug assholes will win it. Buttman needs some buzz and revenue for the sport in the sunshine state ahead of the upcoming CBA talks.

WTF about the Kings is Smug?

Huh... :eh:

The media sucking their bags is getting to be yuck... I haven't heard any smugness coming out of LA. Well maybe that "you're wecome Canada" tweet but wth, it was meant as a joke! :wink:

I don't care who win's. Willie in LA or Marty in NJ... :thumbs:
BTW, NOT A FLAME ... JUST AN OBSERVATION ... :P

As much as I'd like to see Marty get one more Cup, I'll be rooting for the Kings. A friend is a Kings fan, and he's supported the Canucks in the playoffs through all of those dark LA (playoff-less) seasons.

I just hope that it's good hockey. I'll catch the games (or part of) that are NBC.

Soft - as in no real battles? Agreed. But the Kings did knock off the #1,2&3 seeds.

Since the Canucks were eliminated I haven't watched a single game. I don't plan on watching the finals.

Theoretically I guess if I had to root for someone it would be the Devils but solely on the theory of sending Marty off in style. One more cup and retire. Pretty much as good as it gets for an old warhorse like that.

I would love to see the Devils win............

Believe it or not, the Devils have made just as many Stanley Cup appearances as the mighty Detroit Redwings since 1995.......

If the Devils win, they will have tied the Redwings for total cups won since 1995..........

Would be nice to see Brodeur notch what would most likely be his final Stanley Cup..............

Having said that, the Kings are way too good. I can't see the Devils putting up much of a challenge........

Although this whole playoffs have been fucking strange, and so maybe the Devils pull it off...........

Kings in 5..........

Yup. And this is the ONLY reason I care an inkling about who wins the Cup. If Willie wasn't on the Kings, I could care less who wins it if the Canucks aren't playing. Willie seems like a solid guy and is from this part of the world, considered himself a Canuck even after he was offered peanuts to play here and took the paycheque in LA.

A bit off topic, but anyone else follow Paul Bissonnette (BizNasty2point0) on Twitter? He has more than a quarter million followers so would imagine a few are. But that guy sure gets himself into some solid situations. Ah the life of a pro athlete....

Heart wants the Devils to win, brain's saying Kings in 6. The road to the cup has been through Vancouver an awful lot the past few years.

I think the Kings are in for a surprise. The Devils are as fast if not faster than the Kings. They also hit very well. They play a forchecking/trap style, which will give the Kings fits. Remember, they play this style with personnel that are a lot more talented than the Coyotes. Also, the top end players on the Devils (Kovalchuk and Parise), are better than Richards and Carter. In goal, it's pretty even. Brodeur isn't all over the place like Mike Smith. I think it's the Devils in 5 or 6.
