At this point I kind of want Vegas to win the cup but I doubt it’s gonna happen. I like the underdog story as far as the players go but I hate that this is a feather in Betmans cap. Or is it? It’s hard to tell. I’m sure there’s quite a few GM’s that aren’t too happy about this.
One thing is for sure gallant better win the jack Adams

I wonder if this has a significant impact on how certain GMs construct their teams. Will we see some teams try to build 3 2nd lines and a 4rth line that’s as strong a a third?
It’s an interesting proposition

I think this has significant impact on how certain GMs will be fired or put on an extremely short leash.

As for whether they can win it all, if Tampa goes to a game 7 they aren't going to have any juice left. Vegas has only played 15 games and, as far as I know, has managed to escape injuries.

They are also playing extremely well.

Yeah. I'm not sure how anyone could doubt Vegas now? They are clearly the best team left, plus as Walter says they have lots of rest and no real injuries to speak of. They are going to win, and that's nuts.

Except ...

Finals don't start until Monday! Tampa or Washington will have a full 5 days of rest (with a couple hours extra for Washington, since game 1 would be in Vegas).

Remember what happened in 07? Sens had 9 days off and were definitely rusty in game 1. Speed versus heavy hockey did but with out well. This time around you could look at the Caps as a heavy team, relatively speaking.

Ovechkin and Burakovsky providing the offense. Vasilevsky providing the ... umm ... holes?

The Russians are coming!

It’s nice to have the Capitals with their full lineup. I was counting on and waiting for that in this series.

Final round begins on Monday. Plenty of time for bumps and bruises to heal up a little. I hear Backstrom had to use his left hand in the handshake line, so he'll appreciate the 5 days rest.

Hard to say if there will be much "rust" advantage, since the Caps will have 5 days off. But this is just so eerily similar to '07.

Nice to see OV get in the final. It's funny how much public perception of him has shifted over the years to him now being so likeable.

How does anyone bet against Vegas at this point though....so crazy.

I can’t say I watched much of the payoffs this season. A game here and there. but I will be watching this last round.
Nice to have a new Stanley cup winner. Now do I pick.....

Reminder, picks in by 8pm puck drop tonight. 8:05 will be fine, too. I would recommend that you PM your picks to PTSFlea as he is an impartial observer (Flea, don't forward the picks to me until after my picks are in this thread).  Keep in mind that you get 16 points for picking the right team, she a bonus 8 points if you also pick the right number of games.

Vegas in 6. I love Vegas, but hate this pic because I want nothing more than for Ovechkin to win a Cup and then watch his summer antics on social media.
