GO JETS! May the Hockey Gods protect you from the cheating and unfair penalties called against you by the Bettman league.

GO CANADA GO!

Vegas is Bettman's baby. A success story for his ego.

Jets and Caps for me. :)

 

Ditto for me. Disappointed to see the Preds lose, but the Jets have been my 2nd-favorite in the playoffs all along and too bad two great, skilled teams had to play each other in round 2.

Vegas winning is a bit of a farce at this point, it just really makes the NHL look bad to show that you can take everyone's castoffs and build a team that's as good or better than everyone else. It shows that the salary cap has created a false sense of parity, whereby teams that draft and trade well don't get rewarded for that, because they end up having to give away assets they can't afford, and everyone else catches up. Good for Vegas for bringing excitement to that city, and the fans look like they've really embraced that team, but I don't really want an expansion team winning a Cup to be honest.

And in the East, Caps all the way... Ovechkin has been really good his whole career and never been able to see it through, and he's taken a lot of criticism despite the fact he himself has played well in the playoffs. I'd also love to see Eller win one, and they have good skill up and down the line-up. I like Jon Cooper in Tampa, and I have respect for players like Stamkos, Kucherov, Johnson, Hedman, etc., but prefer the Caps all in all.

Hard for me to decide who I'm cheering for. I like TB, but seeing Ovechkin win a Cup would also be cool. I'd like to pull for Canada's team, the Jets, but it's hard to not appreciate the Vegas Knights!

Regardless of what fate awaits Vegas,,,, they've already exceeded  everyone's expectations. Fairy tale year for them.

This is the best top 4 we've had in a long time, as there's not a single team left that I'd mind see winning the cup.

If I had to order them, though, I'd probably go:

Washington

Winnipeg

Tampa

Vegas

 

 

I want to put Winnipeg first, but I always have a hard time switching sides and rooting for a team that I was just rooting against (in the Nashville series).  Too much bad blood always lingers on a bit in my mind :P.  I'd also be happy to see Eller win, not to mention the fact that Ovechkin and co. have been a good, exciting team for a lot of years and it would be nice to see them have some success.

Time to end the fairy tale.

I agree, and both series are going to be fun to watch, without having anxiety issues. :)

 

I'd have to go with 

Peg

Caps

TB

Vegas.

A guy who wasn't good enough to play on the PP in Montreal. 

That's because the Habs have so much more offensive talent than the Caps.  :4224:
