You've seen the scenario in many cartoons. The character is trying to make a decision and he has a little angel on one shoulder and a little devil on the other, both offering advice on which way to go.
That is me with the Western Conference Final. I am a massive Oiler fan and I just don't know what to do with the Anaheim Ducks.
On one-hand, I hate the Ducks. Well not really, I just hate Pronger. I know, I know, we should get over it but really, should I cheer for a guy that broke our hearts and screwed the City over in the process? I think you are asking too much.
But on the other hand, if the Ducks beat the Red Wings, the Oilers land another first rounder. That would give us 5 firsts over 2 drafts. Even the Oilers scouting staff can't botch all the picks.
I suppose the ideal situation is for Pronger to make the finals, thus securing us the pick and then get crushed by the East champions. Possible, very possible. But I think that is cutting it a little too close.
My little shoulder buddy has spoken: Go Wings Go.
