Pennant Race

We’re down to the final four and it’s an interesting group. Detroit, Carolina and Pittsburgh have all won the pennant recently, while it’s been a long time between drinks for the Hawks. I think we have to start believing that Cam Ward is one of the best goalies of his generation, that Detroit does indeed have a better plan and that Pittsburgh did a nice job flushing several seasons to get top draft picks. Chicago is just a nice story. I won’t resent them until they win something.

Here’s the pennant winners since 1967, with this year’s final four in bold:

  1. Montreal (11): ’68, ’69, ’71, ’73, ’76-’79, ’86, ’89, ’93
