Canucks Advance To Western Finals
Start mapping out the parade route, the Vancouver Canucks have advanced to the conference finals for the first time since 1994, eliminating the Nashville Predators in 6 games. This team has never lost a conference final series, so we can assume that they will win in the next round. That's a joke, based on how Vancouver fans responded to the win on Monday. You have to live here to get it. Right now my favourite for the Conn Smythe is Ryan Kesler, followed by Clowe or Datsyuk (depending who wins that series). Luongo had a good series, but then again Nashville doesn't have much offensive punch. The next two series will be much more challenging and really test Roberto's mettle. Right now I am picking Vancouver as my favourite to win the Stanley Cup.
