Stanley Cup Finals Preview: Flyers and Blackhawks

With the Finals approaching, and my Flyers still alive in the hunt for a chance to hoist delicious cake, I mean the Stanley Cup. In a slight change of pace, we will only discuss the pros and cons of each team separately rather than in point/counterpoint format. Why am I changing the rules, because the NHL will probably change rules as well to screw the Flyers this series. Fuck you, Bettman.


Pro: Have 2 goalies each with 6 wins this postseason and have the best GAA and Save % out there.

Pro: Did not sign Marion Hossa this offseason

Pro: Made the best trade of the year sending Ole Kristian Tollefsen to the Red Wings for Ville Leino. Read that again, a part time, injury prone 8th D-man for a near point per playoff game dynamic dangling top 6 left winger,

Pro: Oh bloody hell, just read the 7 signs that the Flyers will win the cup this year .

Con: Have limited experience in winning.

Con: May be burned out from upsetting too many favorites

Con: May be out of perfectly timed time outs.


Pro: Have dynamic forwards Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Dustin Byfuglien and Patrick Sharp who are capable of scoring a big goal when needed.

Pro: Goalie Annti Niemi can swallow up any puck in his crease. [Warning: Puck may never be seen again]

Pro: Have a great D-Corp with guys like Seabrook, Keith, and Campbell

Con: Have a contract that puts Marion Hossa on the ice for them

Con: Campbell lacks a collarbone, Keith has no teeth

Con: Niemi's a rookie, and rookie goalies don't win

Con: They're out Pizza Crawling

Con: Patrick Kane's in such epic shape...NOT!

Analysis: Flyers in 6, and that's the bottom line, cuz DGS said so!
