    Cup Finalists-2008-09

    hmmm...interesting hypothesis Jay, in fact eerily similar to what I think will happen in Vancouver. Gillis and Markus Naslund agree to terms on a contract, with Naslund signing a one year, $750,000 dollar contract to be Roberto Luongo's backup. The 'C' will then be given to the newly signed Sean Avery (6 years, 35 million), who will form a line with Curtis Sanford and Trevor Linden (who, seeing the positive changes in the organization, decides to come out of retirement). The Sedins are traded to Calgary for Dion Phaneuf, who moves up to center a second line with Alex Burrows and Ryan Kesler - a bit awkward at first, but the three are able to settle in to be one of the most potent scoring combinations in the league, ("West Coast Express II"), with Burrows chalking up a league leading 58 goals, and Kesler taking the Art Ross with 135 points (all assists). After a first round sweep of the defending champ Wings, the Canucks go all the way to Game 7 of the final against Toronto, where riots in Vancouver force the authorities to cancel the game and the Cup is awarded to the Leafs, triggering a whole series of riots across the country and a national state of emergency. Leafs fans rejoice.
