Karine's Thoughts

Who do I want to win the Cup now?

Rate this Entry
Well, my team is done, in fact the Habs have been done for nearly a week already. Just goes to show how wrong the playoffs went for them...So...who should I be rooting for now? There are quite a few players I like around the league and a few teams I wouldn't mind seeing lift Lord Stanley's Cup.

1. New Jersey Devils
Yes I know, they're not through to round 2 yet but still I would really like to see Marty get the ultimate prize on the same year he broke the wins record, that would make for one great year for him. Plus, it does feel like the Devils deserve it considering how well they coped with losing their number one goalie for so long this year.

2. Pittsburgh Penguis
There's no denying that they are enjoyable to see play. Even if you do not like Crosby (find him to whinny for instance), it would be hard to say that the Pens play is not electrifying. Fleury had a brilliant round 1 and here's to hoping he can keep it up. As for Malkin, top of the standings again even though his linemates are not doing much, what more can you ask from a player.

3. Chicago Blackawks
They have an exciting bunch of youngster and you got to love the way they turned things around this year. They didnt have the best start and fired poor Denis Savard but so far it seems like it was the right thing to do. They hung on to Khabibulin after signing Huet and it looks like it was the right move as well as the Bulin wall has been their starter for much of the year.He might not have the best stats in the league right now, but his team is in a good position to get rid of Calgary tonight.

4. Vancouver Canucks
For two reasons, or two players to be honnest. Bobby Lu, who had a difficult year with the injury, and Mats Sundin. Sundin has yet to win a cup and it would be sweet to see him win one before he retires. Anyone else got goosebumps when Bourque finally got to lift the holy grail? Plus, I would love to see the Cup come back to Canada...

5. Washington
A very exciting team to watch, I saw yesterday's match and had to admire their execution and focus. Ovie is heck of a player and the longer he is in the playoffs, the better it is for the league. Mike Green now seems to be over whatever illness got in his way at the start of the series and it's really good to see (not for Rangers fans though).

So there you have it, 5 teams I would like to see win the cup. If there is indeed a higher power please please please make it so one of those wins and if not, well at least not the Wings
