Yes!! A Canadian team in the Stanley Cup finals. The Oilers win their series and make it to the “big show” for the first time in 16 years. If they win they would be the first Canadian team to do so since… the habs in 93! Wow, didn’t realise it was that long.
Looks like they might be facing the Buffalo Sabres. Two small markets, two unheralded teams and two organisations taking full advantage of the “new” rules this year. I’m sure the higher ups of the league will be disapointed not to have any teams from the big markets, someone from California or the NY area would probably have made them happier but in terms of the new revenue sharing and the rules putting talent to the fore, it’s a resounding success.
