As much as I'd like to see a Canadian team finally win another cup, I think it's going to be Anaheim in seven. I think it's going to be interesting to watch as the Sens try to make it a north-south offensive series while the Ducks try for an east-west defensive series. But if it came down to one game for all the marbles and the two goaltenders were Giguere and Emery, there's no doubt in my mind - I'd take J.S. any day of the week.
I don't disagree with that last point, but is there a goalie Ottawa has faced so far (Fleury, Brodeur, Miller) that you wouldn't have taken over Emery heading into the series?
This is going to be a brutal contest. The Ducks reputation may hurt them with the Refs. It may depend on how tight they call the games.Senators in 6
I'll go with Chris Pronger. He's MR. Shutdown. If the Sens can't beat him and puffy marshmellow goalie, all hope will be lost for Ottawa.
You have a good point, and everyone I've talked to about this series has said the same thing you did ("Emery beat Brodeur" etc.) You can't discount that he's on a hot streak, but hot streaks eventually end and I still think Giguere is the better goaltender.
