Or, as Gord Miller of TSN put it, "the rednecks vs. the roughnecks."

This should be a pretty entertaining SCF. I feel bad for the Sabres, though, missing four of their top defensemen tonight.

As an old-school Whalers fan, I'll be rooting the Carolina.

I have to go with the Oilers, since they beat the Ducks who I was rooting for..

Plus I got goosebumps listening to the Canadian anthem being sung by the crowd so I wanna see how things will get there when they get to raise the Grail.

This is the first series ever I get to see live on tv here in Holland and I am pretty hyped about it.
Several sleepless nights await me.

'Canes in six.

Partly because I like the team, and partly because I (as a Flames fan) will never hear the end of it if the Oilers win.

I don't care who wins as long as it goes to Triple OT in Game 7 but I will be pulling for the Oilers since they have an ex-ranger behind the bench.

methinks the Hurricanes will be tired because their series went to seven...so if Edmonton plays a tight game, they could beat Carolina in five.

So, that's my prediction: Edmonton in five.

As a side note, I'd kill to see them bust out some classic WHL uniforms for one of the games. Not that it would likely happen, but still...

WHA! They should find the old Avco Cup, certainly.

I don't think the long series should affect Carolina too much, as the Final doesn't start until Monday-four days off. The Oilers will have rested for nine days, and some folks say that's too much. So who knows?

Same for me. I'd love to hear their theme song, Brass Bonanza, played during the cup presentation.

I type this with a smile on my face from my desk at work, where my Hurricanes license plate is hung up on the site of my cubicle ... My Hurricanes mini-Stanley cup sits next to my Hurricanes hockey puck, Whalers hockey puck, and Staal hockey puck ... I'm wearing my old beaten up Hurricanes jersey, and the office is annoyed because I've claimed $50 off of several people I placed bets with for the last round.

Oh yes, I'm psyched! 2nd time in four years we've made it to the dance, and they look HUNGRY!!!!

When Whitney/Recchi/Weight is your third line, you've got some SERIOUS depth! The Oilers are dead.

Edit: I forgot to mention the Hurricanes mouse-pad where my hand rests throughout the course of any given day...

amazingly, I saw both these teams play at home this year.

As an old school Oilers fan, I'm rooting for Edmonton. However, I like Carolina too, so I'll be happy with whomever wins.

Though I stand to win a lot of money in a hockey pool with a Canes victory (heck, I may have already won....damn, where are those standings?!), I cannot abide by another southern US franchise winning the Cup over a Canadian team. So, Oilers in six.

'Canes in 6. Edmonton has been off too long, and after the way that Carolina shook off that bad hop goal late in the 2nd in Game 7, that tilted it toward them for me.

Wow, if it goes six games I'll be up in Edmonton that weekend for the Churchill Cup.

I'll make sure to work on my bonfire skills.
