Bruins in 6
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Bruins will take it.  I'm guessing 6 but I'd like to be wrong and see them do exactly what they did to the Penguins.

 

I'm hoping Boston is not THAT much better than the Hawks. :scared:

 

The Wings have to play in their division next year. I'm hoping the Bruins take it in 6-7 games.

Bryan Bickell will play like a scared little mouse in this series (like Bieksa in 2010).  Not playing against the (powerplay is our enforcer) Wings anymore.  

 

Boston should try to impose themselves physically like they did on Vancouver.  

 

This a million times. The Hawks tried to be the bullies against Detroit and LA, but they won't for a second against Boston. Bickell and Shaw will disappear, and Toews and Kane will disappear on the score board just like Sid and Malkin.

Bruins in 5. Defense is too good

I so can't wait to see  Bickel trying to be a bully against Thornton might not end pretty for him...

It all comes down to one thing: which Bruins team shows up. If they pick up where they left off against the Pens, and stay there, the 'hawks don't stand a chance. And that's really saying something.

 

But I feel like this series might go the distance, i.e. six or seven hard-fought wars.

 

Man, first Original Six SCF since, what was it, '79? I hadn't even been born! *realizes he's never seen an O6 SCF* I feel like such a n00b!

It is great that its an original 6 final, but to be honest I always wanted a Wings Leafs O 6 final for obvious reasons but one thing is for sure ratings are going to be through the roof.

It was a possibility if both teams had scored just one timely goal each.

I have faith in the Bruins to win the cup, and I hope that the Hawks have a major meltdown! Boston in 6!

Go Bruins!

Original Six is definitely cool. Just wish a different team was representing the Western Conference portion.

 

I will hate the Bruins next season, but certainly not now. I want to see Toews and Edzo weeping when the Bruins win the cup.

Well since getting scared by the Leafs in the first round, the B's are 8-1 and just swept the top seeded Penguins, who also led the league by a wide margin in goals for during the regular season and were held to just 2 goals for the entire series.  Its really hard NOT to pick the Bruins here.  I think this series will be similar to ours.  Toews and Kane will get swarmed by defenders, they won't be able to forecheck as well against Boston's system and I think the B's could have this in 6 games.  I would say 5 games, but I think Chicago is good enough to prevent the Cup from being won on their ice.

Will be fum to see if the bruins bias switches next year. I dont think it will. I think we all really just hate Edzo, NBC, Bettman, and the Engineered NHL we have to watch now.

So, what I learned in last series was their whole disrespect the national anthem s*** isn't as long in tradition as I was led to believe.

 

I think TV announcers said it didn't start until early 90s for Desert Storm, although wiki says:

 

 

 

National anthem[edit]

It is a tradition for Blackhawks fans to applaud and cheer loudly during the singing of the national anthem. This tradition originated during a 1985 Campbell Conference playoff game at Chicago Stadium versus the Edmonton Oilers.[46] Jim Cornelison currently sings the national anthem for all home games.

 

 

 

 

Either way, its not like 50 or 100 year tradition. In my opinion, its disrespectful as hell.

It's just plain stupid.  You might as well not even have a singer and just play it and have them cheer.

$5 says the Bruins are gonna make "da Hawks" their little blow up doll.

 

Have grown a soft-spot for the B's these past few years; their combo of tuffness, and skill remind me of our beloved Red Wings circa '97/'98.

Having been to a couple games at united center, I can safely say that a lot of those cheers are pumped through the speakers

Gonna be some fantastic hockey. I think Chicago wins in 5 or 6. They're a different animal, no one in the East like them.
