Kings or Rangers? And why?


Recommended Posts

I think the Kings will win due to the better defence they have. Dont think the Ran gers can match them there.

Goaltending...absolute wash, they have identical numbers

Size? Edge LA...unless Nash shows up to almost even it up.

Kings in 5

Kings have beaten San Jose, Anaheim and Chicago

Rangers have beaten Philly, Pittsburgh and the Habs.

It should not be close. The Rangers are more rested and maybe faster. They might look OK early, but the Kings should crush them. If Lundquist is a problem, they'll have a fourth liner skate over top of him.

On a related note, the Canucks organization and fans must vomit a litle bit in their mouths every time they see Vigneault celebrating another series win. The Rangers and Nucks swap coaches. The Nucks fire Tortorella (owing him $8 million), fire their GM, their best center wants out, their team is in complete disarray. Their old coach, who wasn't good enough apparently, takes his pretty average team to the Cup final the same year. Yikes.

Vigneault firing was the wrong thing to do.

Firing Torts was the right thing to do. As for Vancouver and schandefruede.....naw....but for Torts? Sure!

You can bet he is some pisse right now watching Alain mosey on over to the Cup final.

Huh?

Quick: 0.906

King Henrik: 0.928

Huge edge for the Rangers here, but that's about the only department where they have it. But sometimes that can be enough. I say LA in 6.

I am relying on the stat from TSN or SN that showed almost identical wins and loses, save %, GAA and so on.

It was so close that either one is a pick.

Well, if that's the case, they were dead wrong.

Even by the eye test, Quick has been less than stellar these playoffs while lundqvist has been mostly outstanding (save one game versus Montreal).

Quick has played much better teams than Lundqvist. Especially offensive teams. Blackhawks and Sharks are much different than Habs and Flyers.

Agreed! Now it's the King's series to lose. They are too big and too talented to lose this one. The only thing that could possibly derail them is if King Henrik frustrates them into doing something stupid. I suppose they could be tired...but that size, skill and aggression will be hard to handle. 'Hey little thing let me light your candle'

Quick also has a much better defense in front of him. He's been mediocre these playoffs, there's no question about that.

Has there ever been any serious talk in the NHL that the season should really end a bit sooner? perhaps then start earlier? After all, even though hockey is nowadays an indoor-game its roots lie in the outdoor game played in cold temperatures and on natural ice. That's why teams from cities like Boston, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal etc are considered as the traditional teams when as teams from places like Carolina, Nashville, Miami as plastic teams.

The season ending in mid-June is therefore just against the ethos of the very sport.

I disagree. The Kings have better offensive defensemen, but not a better defense. The Rangers team defense is better. Plus they block more shots than just about anyone.
