Why not, right? Boston was the best team in the Eastern Conference for basically the entire 2019-20 season, so why not have the best in the east play the best in the west to settle it all?
It would be an intriguing matchup just based on the talent level and compete level of both teams in and of itself. Regardless of what outsiders thought, the bottom line is last year’s series between these two teams was one of the most entertaining and competitive we have seen.
Also, there have not been a ton of rematches over the years. In fact, very few.
Pittsburgh played Detroit two years in a row in 2008 and 2009. The St. Louis Blues would want to avoid that fate since the team that won it the previous year lost the following.
Prior to that, the last time both teams made the final the next season was Montreal and Boston in 1977 and 1978. St. Louis would prefer that result since the Canadiens won both times in that matchup.
Even having just won it, it would be crushing to get to the final and lose. But, it is hard to beat a good rivalry and St. Louis has quickly established one with the Boston Bruins.
So, playing them again for all the marbles would be fun.
