    In all honesty - yes, it probably is the Flyers' turn. Get a goalie who can at least hold the fort, without crippling another spot in the lineup, and do it this year before Pronger and Timonen visibly decline.

    Chicago and Boston, among teams, who had actually won cups before, had the longest and 2nd-longest cupless droughts at the time that they won. The distinction for 2nd-longest now belongs to Philly.

    They all have another thing in common - a remarkable string of Finals losses since their last win:

    Chicago: 1962, 1965, 1971, 1973, 1992
    Boston: 1974, 1977, 1978, 1988, 1990
    Philadelphia: 1976, 1980, 1985, 1987, 1997, 2010

    I hate Philly and always will... but it sure looks like they are due for a gift from the hockey gods.
