    For the first time in almost 10 years I can say the Leafs are both my favorite team and my pick to win the cup.

    LET'S GO THRASHERS!! *clap-clap-clappity-clap*
    And for all you nay-sayers (and rangers fans) out there: i'm pretty sure the Islanders had some trouble with the playoffs in the late 70's before winning the Cup four years in a row. Know who was having trouble when the Islanders were dominating? The Oilers, and we all know what happened there. Therefore, I reiterate:

    GLORY GLORY ATLANTA THRASHERS
    GLORY GLORY ATLANTA THRASHERS
    GLORY GLORY ATLANTA THRASHERS

    Here we go again....some crazy leaf fan claiming this year is the year the leafs win the cup.

    News flash...the leafs will be fighting for that 6-10 spot again this year with Boston, Montreal, NY Islanders etc.

    Sundin will be traded by the trade deadline to a contender.

    Go Habs Go!

    Unfortunately, I think the Pens are the team to beat this year. But over here on the clean side of the state, I going for my hometown Flyers. They have added alot of talent, especially in Briere. The division is very tough this year, but they should make the playoffs pretty easily. You never know whats going happen from that point.

    Go Predators! While they've never lived up to their true potential and losing key players this offseason they have also gained some good players and still have Mason whom I thought was better than Vokoun. So I say let's go Preds!

    Let's Go Pens

    And don't forget their first round draft choice...Esposito. They stole him at number 20, the knock on him, and the reason he fell so low, was that under pressure he couldn't "carry the load"! With the likes of Crosby, Malkin and Jordan Stahl, he won't have to!!! I look for him to excel on the Pens third or fourth line

    Hey now...a ways to go to move into the All -Time status some of the Montreal teams have....

    BUT, no doubt about it. The Pens are a great team this year and would be my pick to win the CUP if they had a bigger goalie in net. I like Fleury but he's too small for the playoff game...net crashing and screens are killer to a small guy that doesn't take up enough of the net to get lucky by having unseen pucks just hit him.

    If the Pens pick up a big, top level goalie they win the Cup hands down!

    rangers had it all for a few years and now they're headed back down... no cup. Crosby is the best player in the NHL (kinda debatably but I'll say it as fact)... but he isn't the most experienced... he's only one player on a team .. I don't think the pens will win the cup for a while, as great a team as they are.

    yeah, gotta go with the home of the Stanley Cup


    FOR 12 YEARS I WAITED, NOW I HAVE THE CHAMPIONSHIP IN MY FAVORITE SPORT!!!!!!

    IF SELANNE RETurns, we win again for sure, if not, we have bertuzzi now, so we still have a great chance to win.

    Their top 2 lines still look pretty good. Lots of speed still too.
