One of many reasons I’m not a betting man. Thought that NY would find a way to force a game 7. Tampa’s D and goaltending were just too much for the Rangers.

I don’t really want to pull for either team. But Corey Perry being on Tampa tilts it towards Colorado.

All right, what are you all thinking for this series?
I’m thinking Tampa 3peats in 7 (which probably means Colorado in 6). Very curious to see what Colorado does with Kuemper if he can go and curious to see how much ice Point might see. Heard/read reports that they’ll ease him back in on the third/grinder line and then bump him up to the first if he looks solid.

Lot of “feeling out strategerie” expected in Game 1.

I am stumped. Usually I can pick the Cup winner, but this year....argh.

If pressed, I would think that Brayden Point returning will give Tampa the boost they need.

For the Av's, Makar could be the guy that pulls Tampa's d-men out of position.

I'm going with Avs in 6. It's so hard to bet against Tampa especially with Vasilevskiy looking better in the last few games of the Rangers series. And Tampa probably has a stronger team top-to-bottom and a better, more experienced coaching staff. I'll stop now before I talk myself out of the Avs in 6.

My interest isn’t quite there now that the Rangers are eliminated. I’ll probably watch some but it’s not the same without a dog in the fight

Avs fan - so of course I'll say Avs in 6. But don't trust our goaltending.

Now watch it be the Lightning in 5.

Just don’t have your home crowd jeer Vasilevskiy. All it did was tick him off

Yeah - interest does subside when your team gets bumped out. I'd encourage you to watch as this looks to be the 2 best teams going at it and will be close. Sports drama/tension to the max.

I'm a Wings fan and have enjoyed oodles of Cups and good times.

Great final with the two best teams. Normally watch here and there, but this final could be memorable. I'm really excited to see every game. I'm glad the Strangers lost as they've lucked out considerably with the draft lotto luck, while the Wings have gotten killed.
