    most intriguing finals matchup?

    i know i'm getting a little ahead of myself- the playoffs have yet to start. but the best matchup to me would be any original 6 matchup, or the best storyline of all bruins vs. sharks. jumbo joe comes back to boston to face the team he could not lead himself to the cup. how crazy would that be? i think it could happen

    BOS VS ANA

    Could be greeeattt! A beat em up, knock em down series with TONS of goals scored.

    Or

    BOS vs CHI

    Original 6, Defending champs playing the next longest cup drought in the game(aside from thier own until last year). That could be awesome too.

    In no particular order:

    Montreal-Anaheim: A few ex-Habs on the Ducks, but none more important or respected than Saku Koivu.
    Detroit-Pittsburgh: The third in what would be the "Best two out of 3" finals.
    Boston-SJ: Joe Thornton. 'Nuff said.
    Chicago-NYR: Original 6 matchup of 2 8 seeds.
    Vancouver-anyone: Wow! Vancouver didn't choke this year!
    Phoenix-Tampa Bay: Intriguing to see if the number of viewers outside of the 2 cities would be measured in the hundreds, or dozens.

    Phoenix-Tampa Bay -- Bettman's WORST nightmare.

    NHL's best case scenario:
     - Crosby comes back for ECF -- Washington vs Pitt.
     - WCF -- Detroit vs Chicago
     - Stanley Cup Finals -- Detroit defeats Washington

    I think the NHL would love DET-NYR as well....get the biggest media market in the league back into really caring about hockey, at least for a little while.

    I don't think this has a snowball's chance of happening, but with the NHL, you never know. PHI was a 7 seed.
