I think its gonna be close and probably pretty entertaining. I'm finally over the nucks embarrassing performance and can watch for the love of the game. I think both teams have been fortunate with matchup/injuries but probably the kings moreso and thus I predict devils win.

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.


Granted, but Kopitar and Brown are the top two forwards on LA.

Willie sucks, and never did much Vancouver. He also beaked off in the media a bit about Van (iirc).

The Kings won't know what to do when they find themselves down 1-0, I'm thinking Devils in 6. But I don't know, or care all that much.

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.

(putting my tinfoil hat back on)

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:


:lol: I know eh?! Seems like every team that finds their inner meanness and that extra gear because they know they might only get one shot at it in their life time and beats us deserves Canuck fans wrath.

The Kings have earned it as did the Bruins. As did the Hawks. This ain't a panty party people, it's fucking war, now grow the fuck up and hope our boys get it one day...

I guess if the Cup doesn't want to return to Canada, the West Coast will have to do. :?

So, Cornuck, as a mod and creator of this thread, have you considered changing its name?

I'm really surprised as to how many people in this thread think the Devils will win.

I hope the Devils win as well but I can't see LA losing.

I will also say this about LA:

What a mentally tough team they have. Seriously. I know in year's past, I have often talked about the Canucks being a "mentally fragile" team.......to which many posters asked me to cite a team that I thought actually was "mentally tough"......and here you go. This year's version of the LA Kings.

Am I saying this just because they are winning? Nope. Look at how many CLOSE games the Kings have won in this year's playoffs. In 3 series' now, the Kings have put away teams in 4-5 games. Quite the contrast to the Canucks who pissed away 3 games to Chicago, while losing 2 games to Nashville that they had no business losing.

And lest we forget - the team thinking that they had the Stanley Cup in the bag after being up 2-0 and 3-2 in the series against Boston. :cry:

The only thing I cannot understand about LA is why they have such difficulty scoring. These guys have some serious top end talent and its not like they are trapping to death to have such an incredibly low GA. Anyone who's been watching the playoffs this year know that these guys forecheck hard.

The only way NJ can comeback is if LA has some fragile minds, plus they run Quick finally, as LA doesn't seem like the fighting type, no Chara's back there.

Barring miracle the Kings should have their first cup. This further proves that any team beats the Canucks will move on to win the Cup.

But wait a second, didn't the Canucks beat themselves too?


Fuck it. :evil:

Don't look now, but the Devils have won 2 straight!

Can they complete the miracle?
