Whose parade would be longer?

I think parking lots are bigger out west.

Spolier Alert: sometimes, the best team doesn't always win.

This notion may have some merit if this were a one game-championship game..but even in this case, the best is the team that does what is required to advance/win at that particular point in time.

However, in a best of seven series such as the NHL, I 100% completely disagree with you (respectfully). The best team always wins.

I concur. The best team does always win in a 7 game series. If another team beats you 4 times in 7 games or less then they were better. The Kings and Devils are the 2 best teams in the NHL. For this season anyways.

Come on now....you guys seriously believe that they are hands down the best teams in the NHL this year? Mayyyyyybeeee the best teams in the "playoffs". There is a whole lot of factors that go in to winning in the playoffs too, you don't win 4 out of 7 games on pure "betterness".....if the better team always won the wings would never lose to teams like Columbus....but it happens, and sometimes it happens 4 out of 7 times. All the right factors seem to have come together at the right time for these two, and they've played really good in the playoffs. Doesn't always mean they're the best teams out there, though one will have bragging rights for a year yes.

I think this year they probably are the best teams out there at the moment. Only because the best teams all collectively took a dive. I don't anticipate the Kings or the Devils contending over the next few years. Maybe the Kings will return, but they both have this Anaheim vs. Ottawa vibe going for them.
