With the Stanley Cup Playoffs well under way I thought it was time I write down some of my thoughts about the teams that are left and my predictions for the conference and Stanley Cup finals.

Let's start with the Western Conference.


There was a time I would cheer for a team in the playoffs because they were the only Canadian team left. Not anymore because really it is a dumb reason to cheer for a hockey team. Considering how many Canadians play on teams from all over the US I think it makes the whole cheering for a Canadian team irrelevant.

Clearly from my above statements it is obvious I am rooting for Chicago in this series. Chicago is sitting pretty heading into game 6 tonight @ home with a 3-2 series lead. Chicago is a young explosive team with all the right pieces. Young star forwards, solid d and a goalie who has been outstanding. Vancouver also has a great team but it's going to be a tall order for them to win these next 2 games. Then again you just never know in sports but as of right now I say Chicago wins tonight and moves on to the Western Conference finals.
