In order:

Montreal
San Jose
Philadelphia
Chicago

Anyone but Hossa holding the Cup.


It would be priceless to see him lose in the Finals three years straight with three different teams.

I don't hate Hossa like others do but that would be really funny. He'd be the Buffalo Bills of hockey.

So hate on but guess what, I feel like I can't miss,
I know they want me to fall, But ain't nothin' bigger than this, So just pass me the ball

What are the chances he'd attempt to jump ship again?

never in my life will i root for the blackhawks.

I thought the same thing, and I was puzzled by my bandwagon allegiance to Chicago for the WCF. I had an epiphany last night. I understand now. It's because I identify with those long-downtrodden fans that stayed with the team all through Dollar Bill's shenanigans. They remind me of all the put-upon Wings fans that loved and suffered through the cellar-dwelling 80s to the powerhouse we know and love today. I'd like to see Montreal take them out in the SCF, but I for one am thrilled for the Hawks progress and am grateful that the Central is no longer a walk in the park.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

See, those are the real fans. The ones who would be part of the 8,000 in a 21,000 seat arena to see the Hawks play bc Dollar Bill wouldn't show the games on tv. All the "new" fans who own nothing but Kane/Toews sweaters are the problem.

I agree, especially when those are the fans who are screaming "Detroit Sucks" at the top of their lungs. I feel bad for the old time Chicago fans who have waited this long for a good team because I think their reputation is being ruined by the moronic bangwagon fans who just hopped on board. And sadly there are alot of those moronic fans.

It's not just bandwagon fans that do that. Where do you think bandwagonners learned it? "Detroit Sucks" is the state motto.

Oh, I know but at least the old true fans have watched enough hockey to maybe actually dislike the Wings. These Bangwagon know nothing of the old rivalry at all, no sense of history.

Note - I hate the "Detroit sucks" chant regardless of who does it but I'm not going to stand for it from a 16yo girl that just wants to bang Toews but can't pronounces his name correctly.

I still think the Pens will win the Cup this year.

Bettman will find some way to get them back in it. Kind of like those reality shows when a contestant gets eliminated, but eventually comes back when something happens to another contestant.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Can anyone really imagine Pronger, Hossa, or Devin Setoguchi lifting Lord Stanley's gift to hockey?

Since the Hawks are in, it's basically anyone from the East, please. All of these draft day heroes winning the Cup in consecutive years, the NHL's wet dream. Ugh.

I have no interest in seeing Pronger win again and the Habs already have enough Cups but I guess it's the lesser of all evils to go with the the bleu blanc et rogue.

What a s***ty playoffs this has turned out to be.

Pronger doesn't bug me as much as he used to. Probably because he's in the east and Lidstrom still has more cups and Norris trophies.

He seems to be doing that a lot lately, but at least he gets it right once in a while.
