If it ends up being Edmonton and Florida in the Stanley Cup Finals, would that be about the greatest difference ever between Finals cities in terms of both distance and climate?

I remember the series between the Rangers and Canucks - that was coast to coast, but they were much closer in latitude.

Vancouver is further away, but since you added climate as a variable, then yes, Edmonton and Miami are the most different in that respect.

Sorry Seattle, we need to put an NBA team in Halifax. For reasons.

And speaking of the NBA, I can't believe that we have to wait almost a full week to the start of the Finals.

Yeah, I'm grateful that several Mavs have some extra time to heal up but I may start getting a little twitchy come Monday night.

I've been enjoying the WNBA games that I've been able to catch.
