As a Canucks fan I am absolutely stupidly stoked to see my boys in the Final for the first time in 17 years. I admit that I'm extremely biased but I think that the '94 Final against the Rangers was one of the best and I reckon this one will rival it.
As good as the B's are, as cool as Boston is as a classic hockey town, and as much as I love their commercials with the Bear, I don't see them taking out the Nucks. Canucks in 5 or 7 only because I want them to win at home and I'd be surprised if any of the games are won by more than one goal, not including empty netters.
I'll be visiting Vancouver June 11th to the 17th...so I'm hoping the series goes 6 or 7 games so I can witness the celebration...but Vancouver getting wrecked 8-1....what happened ???
That's what happens when you only show up for 3 games in a 7 game series. I know some guys are playing hurt but that's no excuse. We got outplayed in pretty much every category in the games we lost and Tim Thomas fully deserved the Conn Smythe. I've said this for the past 20 years are so but next year is the Canucks' year.
