Pittsburgh over the Canes, but it will be closer than anybody expects.

Chicago in a shocker.

As a Pens' fan I hate picking my team, because I feel its a jinx. However, I do think they will win in six games.

Chicago in a sweep. The Red Wings are not as good as they used to be and the Blackhawks are the truth.

So much for my Original Six Finals....

I have to take the Whalercanes over the Ice Chickens purely based on spite & hatred.

Sticking with the Hawks over the Wings in the West.

I'm guessing it'll be a Detroit-Carolina final.

But what I WANT is a Pittsburgh-Chicago final.

If anything, I'm glad there's now no chance of an Anaheim-Carolina final. IMAGINE the national TV ratings THAT would have generated.

And I'm REALLY mad at Boston right now.

'Canes in 7, again. They've been on quite the run this postseason, and they're getting the bounces.

Hawks in 6 out west. It is a better story, and the Ducks showed that Detroit is vulnerable.

I'm a Pens fan too, but I don't think they've got a chance. The Pens have an amazing ability to make Cam Ward look like the greatest goaltender who ever lived. I want the Pens to win, but I've just got a bad feeling about this one.

Canes in 5.
Wings in 4.

Wings repeat, and the world dies of boredom.

Ridiculous! The Canes have been awesome and I'm all for reasonable expectations, but the Penguins should've earned some benefit of your doubt by now. Crosby has never been better, and this time around, we have Tom Fitzgerald and the other team has Tom Barrasso.

We have Mike Yeo. He sank our Power Play like a Board Game Battleship this year.

If the Pens find a way to solve Cam Ward, then yeah, they've got a shot, but they sure didn't look good against him in the regular season. Hopefully they do this time around.

Unfortunately, I totally agree. But I really really really hope were both wrong.

Come on, Justin. You should know by now. I'd rather assume the worst and turn out to be wrong than come out beating my chest and get shit on by Wings, Canes, Flyers, or Caps fans for being arrogant. Besides, it's not over yet. If the Canes hold serve, it's a 3 game sprint.

Word, word, and I'm not talkin' like this series still isn't going long, that would be pure dumb. (Plus I must, obviously, never allow myself to be quote-trapped, should things take a turn for the bad. NEVER.) I was just reiterating that the CW can be beaten and that there's nothing wrong with believing that we're very good too. We're very good too!

So, the important question- Did Crosby vanquish the demons of last year when he not only touched the Prince of Wales trophy, but got both Assistant Captains to hold it with him for a photo-op? That's the most love I've seen that trophy get in YEARS.

Mario skated around with the damn thing the two years that his Pens teams won.

i've always thought cujo was a bit overrated and i will be disappointed if the wings spend $9 million/year on him. i'd rather see them spend the money on guerin or a defenseman. as for the b's, they screwed themselves, like they do every year.
