At Newsday, Mark Herman writes that sports simulation company Strat-O-Matic has simulated the regular season and playoffs and has the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup in seven games over the Kings.
They have the Rangers going through three seven-game series before beating the Kings in seven games.
The people at Strat-O-Matic though have a track record as they correctly picked the Heat to beat the Thunder in the NBA finals last year.
Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com picks the Rangers over St. Louis in the Stanley Cup Finals.
In his Eastern Conference preview, Down Goes Brown wrote this about the Hurricanes “Jordan and Eric Staal will finally get the chance to live out their childhood dream of experiencing the chase for the Stanley Cup together, assuming Marc can get them both tickets.”
