So it ends up being Blackhawks vs Flyers for the Stanley Cup. Let me get this out of the way, I FUCKING HATE THE FLYERS!!!! I don't know what it is about them but I just can't fucking stand them. I noticed today that the Flyers Captain Mike Richards touched the Prince of Wales Trophy.
Common hockey folk lore stated that to touch either the Campbell or Wales trophy is a curse because the only trophy a hockey player wants to touch is the Stanley Cup. Now I know that Sidney Crosby touched the trophy last year, but that's Sidney Crosby. Sid is well on his way to becoming a legend. Now Mike Richards on the other hand, he's an over rated hack.
Johnny Toews on the other hand, he's a REAL captain and also well on his way to becoming a hall of famer. He also has class and respect for the game and it's traditions.
So I'm really hoping that the curse returns after making an exception for Sid.
Hawks in 6 is my prediction.
