until teams in the west like St Louis LA Nashville
decide to play hockey and not just keep the puck out
of the net the west will be secondary to the east play
also the boredom factor kicks in on one wants to see
0-0 games decided by luck in the shootout!!!
Yes the Canucks have a good offense but they to have
to play that ropeadope style when they play these
so defensive teams
Columbus too has adopted the
dont let them score attitude of course they dont score either!!!
its very sad the west has become a haven for mediocre teams
hell bent on not scoring so they dont get scored upon!!!
what you say about Pens/Caps may be true but don't count your chickens before they hatch. I say that Caps are the favorites to come out from the East. Pens have a good chance as well but it's not certain.

Washington is not the defending Cup Champions
also they have a defense like a sieve winning
games 5-4 and 6-5 i dont know any teams wifth
such a defense that has ever done well in the
playoffs and of course the great Ovie who is
the MVP only in in his own mind !!!
nothing is certain but if the Caps want to beat the PENS
good luck!!! They will have trouble versus Montreal
let alone the Cup Champs!!!
Finally, it took the supposed Great One like 4 tries at the Richard? Ovechkin played less games and still put up the same stats. Ovie will be MVP this year.
No cup for Ovie? watch him hoist it and centre ice this year!

Ovechkin can't play team hockey, and thus can't win the cup. He plays me hockey. You can't play that way and get all the way to the cup and win it just on the pure talent of him and maybe two others. But he inflates their stats, so probably just his talent. It can't happen and won't happen. Also, I'm a Pens fan. And I hate to say it, but I see the Devils taking it home this year. Just an opinion, I'll still be rooting for the Pens.
Oh and Ovechkin's 5 empty netters... they don't get mentioned by you do they? Crosby wins when it counts, thus he is the better player. Ovechkin never has and never will win it all unless he changes the overall scheme of how he uses his impressive talent.
yes and Russia won the gold medal game in Vancouver!!!
a loser is a loser either in Vancouver or in Washington
the Caps will never win the Cup with the great Ovie!!!
u can put lipstick on a pig but its still a pig
u can put the C on Ovech but it doesnt make him
Go PENS crush the loser Ovie!!!
Ovechkin wouldnt have been MVP anyway, probably wont even be a finalist. Too many suspensions and his team was too good without him. Crosby won't be MVP either. The way Henrik played while his brother was out, picking up his goal-scoring when he is not typically a goal scorer pretty much seals the deal for him as MVP.
Although Crosby is making quite the run for the Art Ross right now, 5 points now still in 2nd period...he needs 3 more.
