The Stanley Cup finals start on Wednesday, June 1st between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins. Who will win the best of seven final?

Being half-Cannuck myself, I root for Vancouver, but the Bruins are my prefferred team from the US.

I think that the Canucks will probably win this series.

Boston fans are pricks in any sport , therefore the Bruins cannot win, Vancouver all the way.

I just needed to check out which sport Stanly Cup was (I had a hunch but I was not sure if it was ether golf or hockey, ) but anyway I will cheer for the Canadian side for no other particular reasons then no reason at all.. I like mapel threes, and mapel leafs are cool looking Cool.

It would be interesting to see who the odds-makers have listed as the favourite. I'm cheering for Vancouver all the way but Boston has maybe the best goalie in the legue and they are tough. I still think Vancouver's skill will win out.I hope.

Bruins are 13 to 4 odds of winning as the Canucks are 5 to 11. I'm not gambling man however I will take the Canucks in 6.

I'm not sure who will win, but I'm pulling for the Canucks.   This is one of the better goalie matchups in recent years too.  Mark Recchi has announced that he will retire if the Bruins can win the Cup.  If they lose, who knows.

Both teams have their plus sides for me, but in the end I too am going with the Canucks mostly because they're a Canadian team that has never won the cup. And Canadian teams in general have had their troubles with winning in the last couple of decades.

well a few teams did manage to reach the finals in the last decade or so: Canadians, Senators, Flames and Canucks (twice), but ultimately all chokedCry
 
The problem is also that the tax rates are killing Canadian teams, compared to US ones (even with the $CDN almost on par with the UD$).... In order to pay a player a net salary of say... 1000.00 net, they have to to offer him almost double gross salary to what a US team has to.... And that's probably just on the salary front... I'm quite sure other taxes (TV rights, building/arenas, etc...) are also much higher Up NorthAngry;.. all that with a much smaller possible audience/attendance reservoir >> almost unfeasable
 
At that kind of rate, it's amazing that Montreal manages anything at all, when you know Quebec has almost double taxes on the rest of Canadian provinces >> I think it was the main reason for the Quebec Nordiques to move to Denver.

I expected that lone goal to be on a fluke shot or something, but that was a fantastic play that came out of nowhere.   It looked like Boston was expecting OT and so was I. Smile

The first two periods of game 1 were penalty filled and took away from the flow of the game. The Canucks dominated the Bruins in the third period with thier speed. Both goalies played great. Have to wait to Saturday for game 2. That's too long between games IMO. Check out this hip check by Canuck's Dan Hamhuis. Unfortunately he left the game with an injury just after the hit.

As much as I want to see the Nucks fall apart (Im a SJ fan), its probably not going to happen.  Thomas was lights out in game 1 and that wasn't enough.  I think that will be a common theme through the finals.  

I just hope Malhotra can get up to speed and see some icetime.

The numbers when a team is up 2-0 in the Stanley Cup is 42-4. That being said the Canucks have taken the early lead in all thier series then.... I never count a team out of it however it's looking good. 35 years. It's been a long wait and I'm an impatient SOB.LOL

hoping for Vancouver...as a Montreal native I grew up to loathe the Bruins, while mostly respecting them.  But I have found it hard to respect some of their behavior this year - Chara's vicious hit on Pacioretty, Mark Recchi's asertion that Montreal was "embellishing" Pac's injury (a broken cervical vertebra is pretty hard to make up), Andrew Ference's finger to the Montreal crowd after he scored a goal, and Tim Thomas complaining about Montreal's budding superstar PK Subban's diving just moments after eliminating Montreal in overtime in Game 7.  So it seems they are sore winners, and God knows what they might be like as losers.  I sure hope I get to find out.

And I should ass that the Boston media is equally horrific, never missing a chance to diss the opposition as either wimps or dirty players, depending on their level of aggression.  There is no denying the Bruins have been built for strength and size for 40+ years, and lately it hasn't done much for them, but this year's edition has skill and goalscoring prowess along with the nastiness, and that is proving a formidable combination.

Being also a Habs fan, I witnessed those Bruins-Habs games of the 70's (the Orr-Dryden era) with such awe!!! The respect I have for the bruins still come from those times... always hated the no-class bullies (flyers) , with Esposito, Schultz and Maloney, though.
 
I fear for the Canucks' win though.... Clearly the bruins are going to even it out in Beantown (where they really spanked their foes), but that last game out west is going to be an all-out brawl.  Actually if it does come down to that last game, I'd say the odds for the Bruins are above 50%
 
 
 
 
 
Stanley head home!!!!!!

I grew up a Montreal fan and so i also hated the Bruins and still do. Believe it or not i started cheering for Montreal after they beat Chicago for the cup in 1968.I was seven years old and they became my team.Not a bad team to be cheering for in the seventies.Dryden and Lafleur were my favourites from that era.

Not even counting that the Quebec Nordiques (then in WHA) were "stealing/plundering" Habs players right, left & centre...
 
But the 70's were an amazing decade for Canada in generalClapClapClapStarStarStar.... The only thing they missed was that first canada Cup, losing to the CzechsCry (but my then-girlfriend, well sweetheart, was a Czech refugee, so I didn't feel that badLOL)
 
 
No small thanks to the WHA (what a mess THAT wasConfusedShockedSmile), CANADA RULED!!!
 
Some of these Canadian cities had two hockey teams for a while ... Toronto (remember the Toros and Napier) or Vancouver (Blazers)... But the Nordiques and Winipeg Jets were regularly champions...
 
I even went to Varsity to see Toros games (against Jets , Nordiques, Calgary Cowboys and Oilers)....
but the only time I ever went to the Maple Leaf Gardens was to see concerts (I hated that Harold Ballard arsehole)

They will! It's a schizophrenic series. Each team have showed different personnality. It looks that the Bruins can't get pass the time lag syndrome. If the Bruins can score 2 goals in game 7, they will win the Cup.

If Luongo continues to play like this, the Bruins should have an easy time. Of course Luongo has played fine in Vancouver. Well, good luck to both in game 7. Go Bruins though!

 I have to disagree with you on some of your points you've made. The Canadian teams bring in 35% of the revenue of the league. That's 6 out of 30 teams. That's a huge number of dollars coming in from Canada. Next year it will be 7 and in a couple years it will be 8 and and I'll even predict 9 teams within  5 years.
 
IMO, it was Bettman's "philosophy" to place teams in non-traditional markets that has also hurt the Canadian teams as these teams are compensated by the richer franchises thus taking dollars out of the team's bottom line.
 
To be fair to Bettman he did save some Canadian franchises, like the Oilers, Senators and even the Flames with compensation going to them back in the 90's because of our very low $, but since the lockout and a few years before the Canadian markets have done very well with the salary cap and our high $.
 
It seems some people think it is only the NHL that has problems. Take a look at the other three pro team leagues. All have thier problems too.
 
I think there will be another two teams in southern Ontario as the league can see the huge $ there and not to place another team(s) there is ludicrous. Q.C. will have another team once thier new arena is built. It will be built.
 
Anyway back to the game last night. I couldn't watch the game after the third goal. It was over. The first goal the Bruins scored I said, "here we go again.' After the second, "get Luongo the hell out of there." And after the third goal, "it's over", and I shut 'er off.
 
I'm blaming Luongo for this series going 7. Nobody else but him. He's getting paid the big bucks and he's not the doing the job. He's starting game 7, though he's played well at home, if he let's in the first bad goal, get him outta there. This is for the Stanley cup. The Canuck's aren't going to score three goals on Tim Thomas the way he is playing.
 
All in all, I hope it's a good game and close. Either way, win or lose, I'll have tears in my eyes from joy and relief or sheer disappointment.

I mean, yes, the Bruins lost all their road games, but did they really play that horrible?  All the games in Vancouver were 1 goal wins.

I'll grant you the game 2 loss was due to horrible defense by Chara for the game winning goal.

They were one goal games thanks to Tim Thomas. Could have easily been two or three more goals for the Canucks. I admit that I'm biased though. Tongue

Yes, Thomas is having a hell of a series.  But the Bruins do have to hope they can get the bad Luongo again.

The Atlanta Thrashers got sold and moved to Winnipeg. They'll start next season. It's still up in the air to what the team will called. The owner owns the AHL Manitoba Moose(Canuck's farm team. Not sure if they'll be staying.) and the team might be called the Moose. IMO, it has to be the Jets.
 
 
 
However, here's the Moose logo. Pretty cool. So Canadian. I could accept it.Approve

as an afterthought to my previous post, I find that Hockey was incredible to Canada until 93, when ther habs won it last (since then the stanley drought has strickenCry).... I mean it was all for the original six teams, until the Islanders, Penguins and Oilers came in >> but these were Canadian offshoots anyway.... Just imagine that the year (95) the Nordiques moved to Denver, they won the cup .... and the following year, the Jets moved to PhoenixOuch and that in 94, the Canucks losdt the finals.
 
 
But since then, the weak CDN$, the high income taxes and small markets have really hurt us.
 
 
 
 
 I have to disagree with you on some of your points you've made. The Canadian teams bring in 35% of the revenue of the league. That's 6 out of 30 teams. That's a huge number of dollars coming in from Canada. Next year it will be 7 and in a couple years it will be 8 and and I'll even predict 9 teams within  5 years.
 
IMO, it was Bettman's "philosophy" to place teams in non-traditional markets that has also hurt the Canadian teams as these teams are compensated by the richer franchises thus taking dollars out of the team's bottom line.
 
To be fair to Bettman he did save some Canadian franchises, like the Oilers, Senators and even the Flames with compensation going to them back in the 90's because of our very low $, but since the lockout and a few years before the Canadian markets have done very well with the salary cap and our high $.
 
I think there will be another two teams in southern Ontario as the league can see the huge $ there and not to place another team(s) there is ludicrous. Q.C. will have another team once thier new arena is built. It will be built.
 
 
You're bringing me some solid optimism hereApprove.... Indeed, I'm not that close to the NHL action or grapevine, since I'm on the other side of the pond...
 
What is that seventh team you're talking about for next season.... a new franchise or an existing one moving???
How about that 8th you mention??? Please tell me more
 
I agree that since (and just prior to) the lock-out, we've seen Canadian teams get into the finals (Oilers, senators & Flames), but still too many Canadian teams didn't make the playoffs this year (that's also a big problem... all six teams play in two different divisions > good for rivalry.... but, sportwise...)
 
 
 
anyway, STANLEY HEAD HOME!!!!!Wink
 
 
 
 
 
The Atlanta Thrashers got sold and moved to Winnipeg. They'll start next season. It's still up in the air to what the team will called. The owner owns the AHL Manitoba Moose(Canuck's farm team. Not sure if they'll be staying.) and the team might be called the Moose. IMO, it has to be the Jets.
 
 
 
However, here's the Moose logo. Pretty cool. So Canadian. I could accept it.Approve
 
Nope!

I mean, yes, the Bruins lost all their road games, but did they really play that horrible?  All the games in Vancouver were 1 goal wins.

I'll grant you the game 2 loss was due to horrible defense by Chara for the game winning goal.

There has been great play from both teams this series.But both teams not being able to win on the road is pretty bad.

Soooo it would be the second time Atlanta would loose their franchise to Canada (after the Flames). Not a good idea for canucks to take holidays in Geargia, uh???OuchWink

Poohs is worst than the Mighty Ducks.
 
Bettman didn't take history in account in regards to Atlanta. The Flames weren't a bad team in Atlanta making the playoffs six out of the eight years they were there. As far as teams relocating to other US markets I really have no idea where they would go. Oklahoma City? Seattle I would think could support a team. Back in Hartford? Kansas City..it didn't work there as well. Portland, Oregon...maybe. Milwaukee...hockey is pretty big there on a high school and university level.
 
In summary, I can only see teams relocating to Canada in the immediate future. I even think the lower mainland of B.C. could support another team.
 
I'm already nervous and excited about game 7 tonight.

They will! It's a schizophrenic series. Each team have showed different personnality. It looks that the Bruins can't get pass the time lag syndrome. If the Bruins can score 2 goals in game 7, they will win the Cup.


Yes, i was right on the button! I had the feeling that the Bruins were about to win their first road game. I would have been disappointed to see a team giving so many goals win the series.Smile

Our little Tim Thomas has grown up to be the MVP of the Stanley Cup finals.  I got to watch him as a young pup goalie playing for the Detroit Vipers.  He was quite horrible then.  I can't tell you how many "empty net" goals were scored on him because he wandered to far from the net to either get loose pucks that the other team beat him too, or skate out to meet an opposing player on a breakaway and having the opposing player just skate around him and score.  We used to scream at the coach to put a leash on him to tie him to the net so he couldn't wander.  It really is amazing to me that all of these years later he is an all-star goalie and now the playoff MVP.  Congrats to him and the Boston Bruins.  It is nice to see an Original Six team win the Cup again, and although the Boston area has had more than their fair share of Championships in recent years, 39 years is a loooooooooooong time to wait.

Probably the least deserving member of the team, too.  If he were a few inches shorter he wouldn't have any chance to make an NHL roster.  "Skill" is completely tied in to his freakish reach.  Recchi might be less deserving, actually, since he should've retired 5-6 years ago and has simply been along for the ride.

Well hopefully Recchi will retire and we'll never hear from him again. I still can't believe the Bruins won the cup, this just doesn't make any sense to me,well except that amazing goaltending can take you all the way.

I was very disappointed in the loss being a Canuck's fan for 35 years. I, and I think the team lost confindence in Luongo after games 4 and 5, especially in game 6 after the 3rd. goal as I could hear the bench say, "ahhh". Totally deflated, as was I. When you lose confidence in your goaltender the team plays differently, most reserved, not aggressive offensively, nervous, tentative, stiff, etc. as I could see in game 7.
 
The difference, and it was a huge difference, was in the goaltending and probably more than other Stanley Cup final I've watched. I place 95% of the blame on Luongo. He chocked... he more than choked. There is no excuse, he's getting paid big bucks to at least keep it close. Hell, it wasn't even close. Sure he played well in the other home games. Three good games, four brutal games. That doesn't cut it.
 
The Canuck's signed him last year to 12 year contract at roughly 5 million a year on average(sliding scale system). "Crazy", I said at the time. Five years, OK, but 12! He's past his prime IMO and with that big contract how/when is the team going to move him in the future, but in the meantime we have a very good, young developing goalie in Cory Schnieder which the team is most likely going to lose this summer. Luongo was the face of the franchise. I think that has now changed.
 
I'm not making any apologies for those idiots that went on an immature crusade and so they could film themselves with thier cell phones and post it on youtube. I think the riots would of happened if the Canucks did win. Just a bunch of punks looking for an excuse to raise hell. Throw 'em in jail for a week. They'll think twice next time.
 
Congragulations to the Boston Bruins and especially Tim Thomas who had one the best years as goalie in the history of the NHL. Conn Smythe winner and no doubt the Vezina as well. Best save % all time and just a great guy who paid his dues to finally make it to the big league through hard work, perceverance and determination. Way to go Timmy.Clap
