Who wins the cup?

Postby Steve on Mon Apr 08, 2019 1:39 pm

Curious about everyone's predictions....

Mine: Lightning over the Blues
Dark-horse team: Bruins.

Note I've picked the Lightning to make the finals the last three years so eventually I will be correct, maybe.

Pens will beat San Jose. If not Pens, then Caps will beat the Sharks. Lots of new talent in the league, but it ain't their time yet.

Caps over Nashville.

Seriously, this may be the best playoff season I've seen in recent history. Could be upsets like crazy in round 1.

I'm thinking the finals will be Bruins vs. Blues. A rematch of the famous Orr goal.
The Bruins win in 6.

I'm thinking conference finals

Flames - Jets and Bolts - Pens.

Jets vs Pens. I'm taking the Pens.

Hopelessly optimistic.

I will stick with Pens over Nashville in 6.

Crosby hands the cup to JJ first and this board implodes.

that would be a dream scenario. On multiple levels(first win at home since maz since Nashville has tiebreaker). As for the JJ point, since he wasn't won any, and is good friends with sid, if I had to bet I actually might bet it would be JJ he handed it too. Of course everything up until that point is wishful thinking.

I value strength and depth down the middle coupled with PMD who can push the play up ice. The Sharks do not have elite talent at C, but top 3 are solid - built for playoffs with experience. Their top two pairings on D make up the difference of not having elite talent at C. Goaltending is a question; no doubt one of them will need to get hot to win the cup.

It would be funny, but I'm guessing it would go to Cullen first, since he's older and has basically stated this is his last season.

Yeah Cully gets the cup first... If we would be so lucky


Bolts vs Jets, Bolts in 7.
Dark horse, Pens, I feel good about this team, don't want to say much more than that.

I wrote when they played in March that a series with the Pens v Stars would be great- here's hoping!
Sid and the pens playing either the Jets or the Flames in the final; the coverage would never stop.

1 period, 1 game at a time.
Lady luck please return to the pens.

Because Boston has gone so long without a professional sports championship.

Hopefully Pens won't meat the Flames. They're my old mistress team and since they have 30 years of Stanley cup drought, it would be...complicated feelings. Really good first post here on LGP stating feelings for another team than the Pens, haha.

I was trying to be funny. But I may be Right.

If they make it vs. San Jose, it will be an unlikeable team against a team I mildly hate. Take your pick which one is which.

I would love to see St. Louis win it. They've had an unreal 2nd half of the year. I'd also like to see Carolina get back to the finals, but I hate their celebrations, so I'd like to see them lose. Haha. Buncha jerks.

I'm going to revisit my post of Apr. 8th.
"I'm thinking the finals will be Bruins vs. Blues. A rematch of the famous Orr goal.
The Bruins win in 6."

At least, my horses are still in the race. I don't want to see Boston win, but it feels like they are going to.

Pulling for the Blues but it can be anybody but the Bruins. Really don't care for a person like Marchand and his antics.

I would be happy it the Sharks or Blues won the cup. Mostly the Blues they have been around as long as the pens with no cups to show for it.

I picked Boston as my "dark-horse" but really can you be a dark-horse if you end up third in the entire league in the regular season? They were mentioning it on Sirius this morning, how the Bruins were sort of forgotten being in a division with the Lightning and the Leafs. (especially the season the Lightning had)

I don't mind the Sharks at all anymore, although I'm rooting for Carolina and the Blues before them. Starting with round two, the only team I don't want to see win is the Bruins. I'm a Bergeron fan, but that doesn't make up for Chara and the rat, and to a lessor extent, Rask.

Also, I'm never picking Tampa again. :lol:
