One NHL series left: Tampa Bay vs Calgary. Winner takes all. Make your picks.
For the last round, it paid to be a bitter Leafs fan.
And qbert72 went 100%... again.

It's a toss-up, but I'm going with what I want to see: Calgary in six. Kiprusoff MVP. Wow, I never would have imagined picking Calgary to win the Cup back in September!

I'll say Calgary in 7...And I never would have imagined picking Calgary to win the Cup back in April...

Tampa Bay in 6. I've been picking them this long, I can't see switching in mid course.

Tampon Bay in 7 Iggy with the Conn Smythe (I still want one of those Jarome t-shirts dammit!)

Calgary in 7. In overtime! Make that double overtime! With a goal by the new "Mr. Sudden Death", Martin Gelinas! And ten more pages of Flames Girls Gone Wild!

CAL in 6. (sorry, mkn, but I like their road record. And they've won 2 series in 6 games.)

Wow, there sure are a lot of farm girl tits on that Website. Not that there is anything wrong with that; sure beats the hell out of rioting.

Calgary in 7, because God wants it that way.

TB in 6, says this bitter Sharks fan!

I'd definately like to see Calgary win. I'll think they'll do it in 6.

hmmm. now I grew up a Flames fan and I want to see them win. But I have looked back and I have not picked them to win any series in their cup run and yet they have won each series. So the sensible thing for me to do is pick... Tampa Bay in 5. 1) I can't see the gusty Flames losing the cup clinching game on home ice but I also can't see the series going 7 games (since a 7 game final is relatively rare no matter what the matchup is). So, the latest non-game 7 home game for Tampa Bay is game 5. 2) when the Flames win I can be happy having grown up a Flames fan. 3) when the Lightning win I can be happy that I made the correct pick for the champion. 4) Profit.

Tampa Bay can't win, for the sole reason that they're my team's expansion buddies, and can't win it all before we do. That said, Calgary in 6, with the postgame structural damage to the Saddledome due to high decibal levels estimated to be in the billions.

Calgary in 7 and let the farm tits fly! This is probably one of the best final matchups in a long time. I'll be watching.

This one is impossible to pick, but I'll go with Tampa in seven. I'm with ya, Succa. It should be an incredible series.

Flames in 6. Sutter system proves unbeatable.

Ignila in six.

Someone in seven. Tampa, I guess.

Oh, Calgary in seven. I swear I haven't looked at tonight's game. We will have a really nice series. Yay hockey!
