Here is your upset leave me alone

The Nugman has once again been awaken from hibernation by Dave Pucks for a finals pick, one I certainly do not want to make, but shall to put a cap on what has been, for the most part, an incredibly unsatisfying hockey season.

The red wings are the better team....they are also the more injured team. In fact, they have a LOT more injuries. When you combine that with the fact that games one and two are being played BACK TO BACK (which should all but guarantee the penguins stealing one of those games), and the penguins despite being in the finals with arguably the league's best player have been flying under the radar most of the year due to their slow start, I think they are feeling no pressure whatsoever. As much as I would like to see detroit win another one, especially with the injuries, I am just not crazy about the matchups in this series for Detroit, not to mention Pittsburgh might well be playing their best hockey of the season right now.

I got the penguins in six. The cup returns to pittsburgh for the first time since 1992, and all the pundits begin the "Is Pitssburgh titletown USA?" since the Giants handed them the superbowl by bowing out to Philly, and the Penguins now own the cup as well. At least the pirates are all but guaranteed to have their 17th straight losing season.
