The Unexpected Finals

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,
Nobody, but nobody forecast the Edmonton Oilers and the Carolina Hurricanes meeting at this time and this place to jostle and scrap for the Cup. "That's what is going to make this series great," said Oilers general manager Kevin Lowe yesterday. "There's great drama out of both dressing rooms. There are all kinds of storylines and lots of good ones. I just hope the Oilers are the main storyline when it's all over." Yesterday, there were questions about many of these different stories, from Cory Stillman's attempt to do a Claude Lemieux and win consecutive Cups with different teams to Fernando Pisani's sniping to Ray Whitney's days as an Oiler stickboy to toothless Ryan Smyth as the face of this fine Edmonton team.
