Joe and Marleau of all people complete the comeback and beat the Wings in Detroit. Role reversal. Sea change. Sharks play in the sea. I don't know what world this is.

    I guess, technically speaking, that there is still a possibility this could happen.


Yes. It's possible in hockey. Won't happen here probably, but it's not out of the realm of possibility, and would make the Sharks a historically laughable team. It'd be like a reverse Boston/Yankees series, only the team that usually wins would prevail.

San Jose had won a lot of playoff games against the Wings though. Sheesh.

RIP - consecutive string of Sharks banner pics *sniff*

Wings still took a lot of stupid penalties and didn't even win the faceoff battle, but it was over 12 minutes in anyway. And, by the way, thanks Douglas Murray!

Pitsburgh has won like six straight playoff series on the road now, so I am not too worried about them choking vs Montral last night.

There is no guarantee your prediction will come true if the Sharks lose the next game.

Oh jesus, the Stanley Cup is not going to have any storyline as usual. At least Wings/Penguins would have been a rubber match. Now the NHL will need to hope for Bruins/Blackhawks or something.

I'm hoping for PIT/SJ now I guess, although that'd have zero storyline potential except 'can SJ win the Cup finally?' I wasn't even considering some of those, some of those would be good matchups and have good storylines.

Not that stories really MATTER of course, but they do tend to make finals more interesting especially nowadays with a lack of east/west rivalries in the NHL.

Since when does the Stanley Cup final need a 'storyline'.

It is interesting to point out that there are only two team left that are playing for thier first ever cup, and they are both in the West. A Montreal/Boston conference final would be awesome. And an original 6 or all Canadian final would also be awesome. I do like seeing 'first time champions' so seeing San Jose or Vancouver win it would be pretty cool.

I'm actually pulling for an all Canadian final.

Vancouver deserves it, but I can't give up on my Habs

If it was the Super Bowl, I'd agree. When the 2006 Cup Finals gets less ratings than minor NASCAR events (and is one of the better ones in years), you take all the help you can get if you're the NHL.

The Habs making an improbable run to try and get their 25th Stanley Cup.

The Blackhawks and Bruins have a drought to stop.

The Sharks want a Cup win to loss off the choker label.

The Pens want to repeat.

There's a Canucks goalie who is seeking validation.


And some decent potential match ups;

Habs vs Blackhawks: Original Six, Montreal gunning for their 25th Cup while the Hawks seek to break the drought.

Canucks vs Habs: Duh.

Bruins vs Blackhawks: Original Six yet again, and both teams are looking to break the drought.

Sharks vs Habs: A team no one expected to be there against a team looking to shed their choker label.

Pens vs Blackhawks: A solid series showcasing some of the game's best young players.

Pens vs Sharks: Can the Sharks get over the hump and beat the defending champs?

Yeah, no potential Cup stories at all /sarcasm.




Game 7 tomorrow night. May the best team win.

Being in Calgary, I suppose I should be celebrating that the Canucks were eliminated in convincing fashion last night, but it would have been a nice story for the city if they made a run right after a successful job in hosting the Winter Olympics.

The Canucks remind me of the Senators from about ten years ago - no shortage of talent, but missing something key in terms of leadership/heart.

The Sharks/Hawks series promises to be fast and fun.

Looking forward to a big Pens/Habs matchup tonight! Game 7 - anything can happen.

Uh oh, riot.

I didn't think Montreal could win 4 times by playing in a shell and hoping to counterpunch but in the last 2 games they were on the aggressive and Pens couldn't match their intensity. Congratulations to all the Montreal players who read this board.

Canucks swap Bertuzzi for Luongo in multiplayer deal I think it's kind of funny that when they finally do trade Bertuzzi they sent him as far away as they possibly could, but that's probably just a coincidence.
