Frankly, it depends on who wins.  If the inexperienced team wins, it comes down to talent.  If the experienced team wins it comes down to experience.

I was a huge edmonton oilers fan back in the 80's, I remember when arguably the most talented club in hockey history got their heads handed to them by an older, more experienced NY Islanders team in Edmonton's first trip to the finals (it was the Islanders' 4th straight trip).  That team needed to lose on that stage to learn how to win, and they came back to win four of the next five championships.  Hopefully a similar scenario is in our future
