Post your picks below. For the Finals, you want to pick a winner, number of games, and a Conn Smythe (MVP) winner. You'll get 2 points for the winner, 1 point for number of games, and a bonus 3 points for picking the correct Conn Smythe winner. So let's see them picks...

I should let my head overrule my heart here and pick Canucks, but I just can't bring myself to do so. Bruins manage to win it in 6, for the home fans, and regardless of who wins the Cup, Tim Thomas gets the Conn Smythe. Remember, it's for the whole of the playoffs, not just the finals. There's no way Boston would be in it were it not for Thomas.

In short: Boston in 6, Conn Smythe to Thomas. Get the Duck Boats gassed up, boys.

Canucks in 4
Ryan Kesler

I just want to point out that I've picked 9 winners (out of 14 games), but have also gotten the number of games right in those picks 7 times.

Vancouver 6, H. Sedin (I was gonna pick Thomas too but having the same picks as owlhouse, whom I'm tied with, seemed like I wouldn't make much progress)

Conn Smythe has only gone to a member of the losing team five times in 47 years, and only once in the last 25 years (Giguere).

I guess it is possible this year when the Canucks win, since Luongo has been only "good enough" so far, Henrik doesn't get the credit he deserves despite almost singlehandedly seeing off the Sharks, and Kesler is very streaky. If Bieksa keeps it up he is a dark horse. I'd love to see Burrows win it just so Ron "The Father of Hockey" MacLean can suck on that all summer.

It seems like the Bruins win 1-0 or lose 6-5, so its hard for me to really see Thomas winning it. If Horton has a hot finals he might be in with a shout. But overall I see the Canucks skating right past the Bruins with their speed and transition game, and Chara being the only d-man who can bottle up a twin, and, well, there are two twins.

Debo, need a Conn Smythe pick for you.

Mine are Vancouver in 6, and Thomas for the CS. I'm picking Vancouver, because I want the Bruins to win...and given my record this year, that might work...
