Sorry, Carolina. Not since the days of Pigskin Pete Franklin has there been a creature with such an uncanny ability to look into the future (nor one with such a hairy back). From the Edmonton Sun.

TSN’s prognosticating primate is predicting the Stanley Cup will be heading to Canada.

Maggie the Monkey (above right) spun her NHL playoff wheel last night and picked the underdog Edmonton Oilers to beat the Carolina Hurricanes in this year’s championship. That would make the Oilers the first Canadian-based team to win the title since Montreal in 1993.

Maggie is a solid 9-5 in playoff predictions this year, successfully picking Edmonton and Carolina to win their respective conference finals. In 2003, she predicted the Anaheim Mighty Ducks would qualify for the Stanley Cup final by beating favoured Detroit, Dallas and Minnesota.
