Put a fork in em, they're done. :'(

Welcome to the worlds most boring Stanley Cup final that could possibly happen.  I think Matt's chances just went up.  

I would be pleased though if Brodeur got a cup in the season following the gold medal.  Nice for him.  

As long as Giguere doesn't turn into a sieve, he should get the Conn Smythe.  Brodeur might steal it though.  Brodeur is now what I would consider to be a lock for the Vezina as well.  I thought Lalime with the better record might have a shot, especially with a Cup win, but that ain't gonna happen.

What's wrong Scott?  Can't handle just one more SoCal sports championship?   :-*

Geez, we even tossed the Lakers out of the mix this year, to try to even things up a little for ya'!

But I should mention (if I haven't already), that I actually made a deal with the Devil, and sold my soul several weeks back.  I was posed the question several times by different people way back when the Ducks were slapping the Wings around in the first round:

If I could only have one Championship between the Lakers and the Ducks, who would it be?

I thought about it quite honestly, and most suprisingly chose the Ducks.  Even though I've been relegated to just bandwagon status with them over the past several years, and I'm a psychotic raving lunatic Laker fan on the other hand, I decided that since this might be SoCal's only chance to win a Stanley Cup, best just to bring home the bacon while we still have an insanely HOT goalie (assuming sitting idle for the past week+ hasn't cooled Jiggy off too much).

As long as the Lakers still have Kobe and Shaq, they'll always be right in the middle of the playoff mix.  They'll win some more championships, I'm sure - so I'm not too worried about them.  The Ducks on the other hand (or the Kings for that matter), may not ever even get another sniff at the Stanley Cup Finals.  So just give us the Cup for once!   8)

I can only assume that since my Lakers got waxed, that was just a part of the master plan with the deal I made, and that the Ducks will indeed win it all now!  If they don't, then I sure as $h!t ain't handin' over my soul to the man downstairs!  Better not deal me a crushing blow twice within a matter of weeks, or there'll be hell to pay!  >:(

GO DUCKS!
