Stanley Cup Finals – Blackhawks and Flyers

Well, the NHL has a matchup favorable to them, even if it doesn’t include Ovechkin or Crosby.  Two huge TV markets, lots of Canadian-born players for HNIC viewers, no Sun Belt towns (or Detroit) who won’t sell out their building right away and embarrass them.  Like I mentioned at the old place, both teams have some Buffalo connections, giving you someone to root for or against, however you like.  I think the Blackhawks have the advantage here, Nieme is solid, good scoring, and they have guys that can goad the Flyers into taking penalties.
