The ugly elephant in the room

It looks like a Stanley cup final between the hawks and penguins is all but inevitable. If this nightmare scenario comes to fruition who do you root for? I know that I'll be cheering for the kings and bruins, but I feel like neither team has a real chance. I know... That's why they play the game, but does anyone really think that either the bruins or kings are better than their respective opponents?
LA has a huge advantage in goaltending.

I think that the bruins have a pretty good chance. It depends on Rask playing a good series though. I just don't know if the pens can handle the physicality of a series vs boston... or maybe I'm just being too optimistic

Yes, the Kings are actually better than the Blackhawks. To me, the Bruins/Penguins will be extremely even as well. Also, the better team doesn't always win a series. Nobody, and I mean nobody, gave the Red Wings a real chance to win the series, and they nearly did. If it comes down to Chicago and Pittsburgh, I'd have to swallow the bitter pill and the the Blackhawks, I never want Crosby to win another Cup again.

I'm with the OP and most others here, Go Kings and Go Bruins. Doubt either will hoist the cup, but at least there's some hope

I am confident that the Kings can beat Chicago, and I think that Boston has a good chance of beating the Penguins. I am hoping for a Kings and Bruins final.

Safe to say that I have no interest in the playoffs now? I mean I will see who wins and all but probably won't watch any games. Don't care for any of the teams but if I was to pick I think it would be Bruins.
I don't care either.
Pre 2005 lockout, I watched all the playoffs religiously. Now, I can care less. I may flip the channels from time to time. Hardly watched the Finals at all last year.

As far as i'm concerned the playoffs ended tonight and it's officially baseball season. That's about how much I care about the remaining 4 teams competing for the cup. I don't care who wins because all have taken it recently and don't necessarily like any of them all that much. Kings/Bruins is the lesser of two evils but my give-a-damner is floored.

Tomas Vokoun vs Tuukka Rask
Vokoun has played well so far, but he's a backup for a reason. Tuukka Rask is 1 of 3 goalies to ever let a team come back from being down 0-3 to win a series 4-3. My pick is the Bruins, Vokoun can only look this solid for so long

By teams I dislike least Kings - Bruins - Pens - Hawks
If it comes down to Pens - Hawks at least I can root for Iginla/Vokoun.

I could see the Bruins beating the Pens but I dont think it will happen. I think whoever wins the west is going to win it all, I'm still not sold on Pittsburgh's defense and they havent played anyone yet. The East is so weak this year.

The Wings are the last team to win back to back cups. I don't want that to end this year.
