hate the Rangers and NY in general. But then again the only thing I like about LA is the Kings and that is mild...... Kings in 5. Bettman gets what he wants: the 2 largest TV markets in the final. Money is rolling in.

Kings in 6 maybe 7 if the refs wanna be nice imo. Good goalie matchup but the West is a better conference. 3 game 7 wins on the road against arguably the 3 best teams in the NHL this year? Meh,can't wait for 2014-2015 hockey. I want my Wings back and strong!
Also extremely happy that our 97 and 98 Wings are still the last team to go back to back! Woohoo!

Go Rangers! Rooting for them for a couple reasons: They seem to be the feel good story,with St.Louis. I also think it will be good for the league if a big market team, from the east coast (not named Pittsburgh) wins the Cup, NY has been hungry for a Cup since Messier. Another reason would be that my Nephew-a huge WIngs fan- lives in southern California and gets flack from his coaches and teammates who are Kings fans. I want the Rangers to win so they would Shut Up and my nephew doesn't have to listen to them celebrate.

Finally, a SCF minus Detroit that I'm not insanely annoyed to watch. This should be a good one. 

 

No Boston?

 

No Chicago? 

 

No Pittsburgh?

Feel like Animal House:  "This is going to be great!"

 

I am siding with the Kings, but I have no hate towards the Rangers at all if they were to win.  The Rangers won't be push overs either.  They may not be the Hawks, but the Kings need to clean up some of their play.

 

My man crush on Jeff Carter knows no bounds this post-season.

As a Wings fan it seems so ridiculous that the Kings have taken this kind of road to the final and they're not looking worn out at all and as far as I know aren't dealing with much of anything injury-wise. But they're still human, and there has to be some fatigue sooner or later. If the Rangers can take the series lead you never know, LA might not have the strength to turn things around yet again.

Will default to supporting Rangers because its been 20 years since their last. It would be good for Lundqvist to actually have a Cup to justify his nickname, and it prevents LA from racking up Cup wins over a short span.

Kings in 7 just for the hell of it
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.

I'm happy that I'll be able to sit back and just enjoy this series, considering Chicago, Pittsburgh, Boston, and San Jose are not playing.
Bettman almost looked like a human in 1994.

Or Steve Carrell. :)

I'm torn for this one, as others have said. I guess I'll pull for NY so Lundqvist gets a cup and to keep LA from pushing the dynasty. I do think LA is more likely to win, though.

If it were anyone but the Kings in the finals I'd probably be pulling for the Rangers, but now GO KINGS!

 

What's crazy is the Kings have already played more games than when they won the Cup in 2012.  Going through some of the best teams in the league in the process.  I hope they haven't used up all their mojo just to get to the Finals.

Kings earned their place. This will be a very good SCF to watch

Kings are capable to close this series in 4 or 5.

However, given two biggest markets, everybody want this series as long as possible, say 9 games would be magnificent. Thus watch out for referees tweaking the outcome.

 

I'd say Kings in 6. f*** the Kings, f*** the Rangers!

It's about time that NBC has returned with prime time coverage of the NHL.

Slackers.

 

From NHL:

 

National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman today ruled that the suspension toNew York Rangers forward Daniel Carcillo will be revised to six (6) games for his actions in violation of Rule 40.4 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final in New York on May 22.

Carcillo had originally been assessed a suspension under Rule 40.3 for deliberately applying physical force to an official. A violation of that particular Rule requires a minimum suspension of "not less than ten (10) games."

After considering Carcillo's appeal during a hearing at the NHL's New York office on Friday, May 30, the Commissioner ruled that Carcillo's actions were more appropriately deemed a violation of Rule 40.4 for deliberately applying "physical force to an official for the sole purpose of getting free of such official during or immediately following an altercation." The Commissioner determined that as appropriately re-classified under Rule 40.4, and under the totality of the circumstances, a suspension of six (6) games was the proper penalty.

 

 

It took this long to come to that decision?

"Uncle Gary, it's Mr. Sather on Line One."

I can't believe Carcillo's suspension actually got reduced. Looked like pretty blatant abuse of a referee to me.

"Uncle Gary, it's Mr. Sather on Line One."

 

I'm sure he wanted to wait and see if the Rangers would win the series.  If they lost, you know the suspension wasn't getting reduced because it'd be regular season games. 

 

But Gary found a loophole and reclassified what Carcillo did under a different violation so he'd be able to play in the Cup Finals.

One thing I agree with that Bettman has done.
