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
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.
Extremely disappointed, but very proud of this team in rebuilding on the fly. Looking to see big steps next year, in a brand new division, in a brand new conference. I have no real preference in who wins the Cup, as long as it's not Chicago or Pittsburgh.
I initially picked the Red Wings in 6 games. I would love for it to be a close game where Chicago has to pull their goalie, to see the crowd go crazy and an empty net at Chicago's end. Make it happen Detroit!
as I said in the other thread, 1 more less and Chicago won't belong on the same ice as Detroit, better yet as someone else said, they won't be ALLOWED to be on the same ice as Detroit. The only other team I'd be happier beating would be Pittsburgh for the Cup. End this tonight, Wings and send every overly-confident, arrogant, lowlife Chicago scumbag who only discovered hockey in June of 2010 back to the hole they came from. Looking forward to tonight!
