Anyone Watching The Semi-Finals?

That means we've been beaten by the Cup winner in all of our last 3 seasons.

To those who are down on the west I think it is just sour grapes that the Canucks are out because that game last night was amazing. And I'm getting sick of the comments about how the skilled teams are out. The Predators are really good and can play offence. They dominated the offensive zone last night and their puck movement puts a lot of teams to shame. The Coyotes are great at taking advantage of the chances they get.
we on the west cheer for the mighty canucks...hello!?! caps rangers today was one of the most boring games i've ever watched...sadly the rangers will probably win the cup this year.
a true faN.

I will not, however, cheer for any team besides the Canucks. I may, marginally, cheer for one team over another (as in, when I hoped that Washington would beat Boston), but I will never have a definitive number two.
Ask yourself this: You may be cheering for Philly right now, as I have seen many say, but how would you feel if Vancouver and Philly met in the cup final next year? For perspective, imagine you cheered for Boston the year before last. Wouldn't you find that extremely unpalatable? I love hockey, but I can watch it without some compulsory team that I cheer for.

As much as I hate the Rangers, I'd be happier to see the Rangers or Flyers take the cup. I really have stopped watching. This plug up the neutral zone and look for mistakes style hockey is getting tough to watch.
I know. It was another boring game today. Everyone was asking me if I was on the edge of my seat because the game was so exciting. Thank goodness they woke me up, I almost fell asleep right then and there.

I'm also looking forward to the World Championships. Too bad about the start times, but I'll watch when I can.

It went from...
Vancouver vs Nashville
Detroit vs San Jose
Phoenix vs Nashville
St.Louis vs L.A
IN ONE YEAR!!! How the hell did this happen! NO chicago, detroit, vancouver, or even San Jose in round 2? Not even 2 let alone 1?
It's terrible, ya know good, good for those fans in those cities, but cmon, Mike Gillis is a guy that compares his team to Detroit, or a San Jose. He always does that, and even HItchcock likes to do that. He likes to and wants to compare his team to the best, and he compares his team to Vancouver Detroit, but who the hell does Gillis compares his team too? Phoenix? L.A? Trapping teams? who would have thought this would happen in a year! The west is dominated by trapping teams, ok L.A scored 5 goals tonight, but cmon, that's a trapping team all the way. To be honest this is one of the worst playoffs since the lock out. It really is.
Hell even Pittsburgh is gone? You know New York Rangers is also a trapping team, the only good team that I like, is the Flyers. Because they are not defensive first, ok, every team is "defensive" but they are more up tempo then some other teams. I kinda have a soft spot of Washington after they defeated Boston,
But honestly, this is not a very exciting playoffs. But I still watch here and there.
Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.
