Here are the individual and averaged predicitions for the 2010 Stanley Cup Final from Dobber, Angus, Bugg, Ma, Miller, and more! The panel's consensus picks were 12-3 last year, and we boast an impressive 34-11 record over the past three seasons! However, this season the panel has struggled a bit. Matt Bugg has been the most successful, going 10-4 through the first three rounds.

 

Steve Johnson, Marty Kwiaton, Chris Boyle, Justin Goldman, and Ian Fergusson all picked Chicago to make the Final before the playoffs began. None of the experts had Philadelphia emerging from the East. Of those who picked Chicago, Steve was the only one who had them winning it all.

 

Expert CHI vs. PHI Conn Smythe Record to date
Dobber PHI in 6 Chris Pronger

Sweep? You crazy? Steve Johnson thinks the Flyers will be swept? I will eat my hat it that happens.

Keith Factor... But on the other side we have a check and balance to Pronger. Duncan Keith, who with his missing teeth is probably more similar to playoff monster pronger now than ever.

pronger effect.......... ... i would put my money on chitown but dont underestimate philly. at the beginning of the season, they were one of a few favorites (along chicago as well). both teams are well matched, deep at forward with both scorers and character checkers, both clubs have great top 4 dmen and both have a similar goal situation in that both niemi/leighton were not battle tested previously. even the bench coaching is close. there is also the pronger effect - this guy is a monster at playoff time. anyway, i anticipate a great series with a slight edge to chitown.

Chi vs Mtl? Anyone else notice the title of the picks having CHI vs MTL?

I am worried about the Dobber jinx this year for my Hawks but was happy when Notch picked the Hawks to win it in the first round picks, he was money throughout the year!

... I love the Angus pick - I was back and forth between Philly in 7 and Pronger, or CHI in 6 and Toews. Frankly I think I took the chickenbleep way out. Kudos to Angus for having the cajones.

Keep the doubting coming!! Angus.. now I know why I respect you!

Everybody ride the Toews train! Climb aboard.. I'll hop on the Richards bus. I don't want to be a part of the train wreck that is Marian Hossa.
