Jets, because of the bullshit endured for over 2 decades, and the proxy suffering of Phoenix and Atlanta.

Then Caps, Knights, Bolts

Technically the Jets have waited longest for a cup, so you might think they deserve it more, but they also did have a winning history in the WHA and won 3 Avco cups there. But no one gives a poo poo about beating the Aeros, Nordiques, and Oilers w/baby Gretzky.

I wonder if they will actually be able to limit it to 22 000 people. Six PM start on a Saturday and it's supposed to be nice weather.

We have the capability to make San Jose's first Cup Champion.

The Sharks could be that Champion.

The main downside to the Knights winning would be Luca Sbisa - Stanley Cup Champion being a thing.

This would be great because...

Luca Sbisa is going to score the Cup winning goal and Canucks fans are going to lose their poo poo

...and then, on his day with the Cup, Sbisa will bring it to Jawknee's old restaurant and, red-faced and wild-eyed, demand to show it to that one guy who told him he sucks.

I'm not much for nationalism so I tend to reject the notion of Canada's Teamô. However the Jets seem to have some good hockey players that know how to play some exciting hockey. The fact that it enrages Americans to have a franchise that resides in Canada this late in the playoffs is just icing on the cake.

1. Caps - Ovi deserves a cup damnit.
2. Jets - The team used to be dumb but their young blood is cool.
3. Bolts - They already got a cup, but it was awhile ago, and the way these guys are steamrolling, they deserve it.
4. Vegas - Went in liking the Unprecedented Expansion Championsô, but it's getting old and gently caress giving Bettman any excuse to think he did a good thing.

I don't think anyone is "enraged" that a Canadian franchise is this far, it's just funnier when your teams lose because many of your sports journalists definitely do buy into the Canada's Team thing and write funny articles when they fail, or when no Canadian team makes the playoffs/is a contender, and I like to read those.

Like, if I wanted the most American team to win I'd be cheering for Winnipeg. They have the most American players of any of the remaining teams by far, and all their best players are American or European aside from Scheifele.

It has some absolutely awesome outdoor areas!

That our lovely government is trying to destroy or turn over to billionaires whenever possible

At any rate Tampa needs to win so the Rangers get another 1st round pick and then Tampa needs to have the worlds biggest cup hangover and end up winning the draft lottery in the 2019 draft

Also it'd be cool to see former Rangers win the cup I guess.
