2009 Stanley Cup Finals Predictions

The Stanley Cup finals begin Saturday night, so naturally, everyone wants to make their predictions so that they might look smart at the end of the series. Let’s see what "the experts" think:


Matthew Barnaby – Wings in 7
John Buccigross – Penguins in 6
Scott Burnside – Penguins in 6
E.J. Hradek – Wings in 7
Pierre LeBrun – Penguins in 6
Barry Melrose – Wings in 6

(ESPN deserves credit for naming the number of games. As you continue, you'll see that most folks just picked the winning team.)


Bob McKenzie - Wings
James Duthie - Wings
Darren Pang - Wings
Ray Ferraro - no selection
Maggie the Monkey - Penguins

CBS Sports(line)

Wes Goldstein – Penguins
Greg Cimilluca – Penguins
Erin Brown – Penguins
Michael Hurcomb - Wings


Bruce Ciskie – Penguins
Adam Gretz – Penguins
Tom Mantzourainis – Penguins
Eric McErlain – Penguins
Kevin Schultz – Wings
Susan Slusser – Penguins


Jim Fox - Penguins in 6 (via video)

Naturally, the Penguins bloggers are picking the Penguins while the Red Wings bloggers are picking Detroit.

Since I'm a homer, I'll pick the Penguins in 6. Feel free to make your own predictions in the comments section. You can also add a tidbit (funny or not) about the series. My random prediction is that Craig Adams will score the final goal of the series.

Update: Sunday May 31

I found a few more predictions since I published this post.


Ross McKeon - Red Wings in 6
Matt Romig - Penguins in 6
Puck Daddy (aka Greg Wyshynski) - Wings in 7

Seth @ Empty Netters - Wings in 7

Yes, this was a game of bounces. To be exact, three of them. All leading to Detroit goals. I believe that this game will prove to be the easiest for the Wings. They will see a whole new level of tenacity and drive in game two tomorrow night. I also don't see too many changes from our perspective. I like how we played. I don't like the back to backs, but it is out of our hands. I have confidence that the Pens will prevail. Don't worry.
