Canada’s Cup to lose?

2010: the year Stanley goes home!

I know, I said this last season and it didn’t happen. But think about it: the winter Olympics in Vancouver, where host Canada will be the odds-on favorite to win the gold and a Canadian team finally wins the Stanley Cup for the first time since the Montreal Canadiens in 1993.

The only question is who will win it?

Let’s see, based upon some picks, in the East the Habs are picked eighth and in the West the Canucks are picked third as a division champ and the Flames are picked sixth. I’m sticking with the Leafs, but would love to see any Canadian team win the Cup in 2010.

Who knows, since the Canucks are hosting the Olympics, how about celebrating Stanley next June?
