Hi, everyone.

My name's Mark.
I was just wondering - do you continue to follow playoffs or not?
I'm asking because I don't know what to do anymore after...our loss to LA... I mean, for me, it's like playoffs already ended and there's no point in continuing to follow the other series. Am I the only one who is too pity to watch playoffs? What do you think - is it worth continuing to follow playoffs or not?

I'd only watch if there was a big game 7 or something. That's about it. The 2nd round in western conf. is going to be extremely boring. All 4 teams are all about D. I have no interest in the west. Maybe the East

If Washington and Ottawa make it through I'll definitely watch some of their games.

I only watch the highlights. I usually only watch the finals, it really bums me out to think "our team could be here right now"
Go Canucks Go :)

I am cheering for Philly all the way.

Gonna see what it's like when a team of players losses the cup, changes some things and win it 2 years later.

History will be made.

That's exactly how I feel. I'm just too pity to watch how others teams continue to have fun in playoffs, to play... because Canucks' run is over...

Other years I usually would, because it's usually really good hockey. But with the atrocious reffing around the league and the double standard suspensions that are happening, I will not watch at all anymore this year. Hell I wasn't that bummed that the Canucks got knocked out, watching what the league has turned this game into is painful.

I am becoming less and less of an NHL fan every time I see blown calls, suspect reffing, and bull suspensions around the league. If it continues I will stop watching all together. :(

I'd rather watch paint dry than to watch another game in the Western conference. As far as the East goes, I'll have a look here and there. But I need a break from it all for a bit .... too emotionally involved <_<

The NHL playoffs is arguably the most exciting tournament in all of sport. I'll be watching all the way to the end. This will be the case regardless of who advances.

I'd love to watch every game if it wasn't for finals. Social life after finals! But wouldn't it be amazing if LA made it to the finals and played against PHI? Richards and Carter against his former team.. amazing story line.


(Jesse Canuck @ May 10 2009, 12:57 AM) IM SO frackIN SICK OF THIS crap.
This is the last Canucks game I watch. Goodbye. nice run, frack you.
^Please stay away from watching Canucks forever. Goodbye.

i refuse to watch the west this year. I really dont want to watch st louis nashville LA and phoenix try and out-trap each other. The eastern games i will watch with great enjoyment.

I'm far more passionate about hockey in general than I am about the Canucks as a team so yes I will watch. I won't exactly be thrilled with the end result however.

You never know though, could be some future Canucks showing what they can do, never hurts to watch.

It's really easy to lose interest when your teams not in it. Instead of avoiding things like, exams and work its business as usual now. No need to take any time off. Also weathers getting nice and I'd rather be outside then watch.

I might watch Philly's series, but I'd prefer not to watch neutral zone traps when I'm not emotionally invested in it.

I am a hockey fan first, Canucks fan second so I've watched every single game and will continue until the final match. Will even go to a handful as well.

I try to watch all the games, going to start watching the NBA playoffs too when that begins.

Yup, still watching. Even with the Canucks out, I don't stop watching playoff hockey. However, I may take a break from the western conference matchups this post season - will likely watch their highlights. I'm totally down to watch the East though.

After watching 87 games this season, I am giving myself a pass. Since Sunday, I have golfed 2 rounds and logged 12 hours in Skyrim. Not sure if we will win a cup next year but feel strongly that we may be the first to win president's trophy 3 years in a row.

i thought i might enjoy some other playoffs games as well but i just feel a bit empty inside . as some have pointed out the boring style of hockey that is employed by some of the remaining teams puts me off ,but i will still follow philly's progress ,5 and a half months is a long time with no hockey .

Nope...it's just not as interesting/exciting when it's not the Canucks, and the other teams I didn't mind are all out. Watching a bit of soccer now here and there. Very much a patience game...alot of passing passing passing...they need to open up the game more. Once they get settled in the end zone it just gets clogged up in front of the net, so many bodies. Or maybe there is space when you're actually on the grounds it's just about finding an open line or getting by the wall of players unless there's a rule that prevents them from standing behind the opposing players??

I'm rooting for Ottawa to win it all, just because of obvious reasons.

From the Western Conference, I'm rooting for the Nashville Predators.

I watch if there's nothing better to do, if it's a big game, or if it includes Boston or LA.

Sure. Especially deciding games. And the Final. I'll definitely try and watch the Boston game 7 if I'm not busy so I can see them hopefully lose.

The difference between before the Canucks were eliminated and after is that I'm now in control of my TV life instead of it controlling me. :)
The silver lining to the clouds is whats above those clouds. The Sun! And I now have the freedom to leave another playoff game on TV behind if the weather cooperates , especially on the weekend and I can spend the whole day and evening outside in our awesome Province.
