Go Pens for my bracket!  Go Trolljackets because!
I'm so conflicted.

sno man: Go Pens for my bracket!  Go Trolljackets because!
I'm so conflicted.


No kidding, having a Battle of Pennsylvania in the east (if the Flyers can come back) while there is a Battle of California going on out west would be reasonably cool.  OTOH, the poor Blue Jackets have been fighting the good fight for many years without too many complaints & without taking the Oilers apparent route of tanking to get good draft picks. I'd really like to see them move on, they've earned a chance.  Also if they happen to win, by getting the Penguins out of the picture, hopefully NBC's/Pierre's knob slobbering of Crosby would be reduced quite a bit (it will never completely go away.... but at this point even a slight reduction would be nice).

Out west I really don't care too much either.  I think that the Ducks would have an easier time with the Kings over the Sharks but my son lives in the Bay Area & a Sharks win would give him a final chance to see from the stands Teemu on the ice as a player.

Avs/Wild, again I really don't care.  On the Wild side, I've loved Bryz since his time here in the AHL & would love to see him go deep in the playoffs again.  But they've also got Cooke & I'd rather he not have further success plus coming back from the suspension he's probably going to have an attitude & there's nobody on Chicago that I'd like to see their career ended/with a prospect of long term rehab.  The Avs otoh are a true Cinderella story.  After coming in what, 27th last year(?) to first in their division this year is just incredible.  Then too they've got a team full of young kids with seemingly a great attitude towards the game & a rookie coach in Roy who has done wonders with what he had to work with.  On the minus side, Roy is by many accounts a miserable human being & I'd rather not wish him further success.  Oh well, whoever comes out on top will have my support for round 2 because Chicago is well, Chicago.

Whatever it is though, this year's playoffs have been great so far & look to only get better.  The real winners are us the fans who get to watch this most every night.

I made my braket with my heart, rationalizing my decisions with stuff like "Price won't hold up and the Habs will putter out. The Blackhawks will falter.."

It's really gone to shiat. I've gotten one right so far(the Bruins). I've got the Pens, Aves and the Kings, so at this point, I think i'll be at 50% for the first round. I am not better than a coin flip.

Looking for the Wild to win the series, mainly because it will give me a chance to catch a game against the Blackhawks when they're at the Xcel Center. Didn't make it to a game this year, honestly I feel kind of weird about it.

GO TROLLJACKETS!

Surely one of these three home teams will win and force a 7th game.

I hope it's the Kings.

That series has been downright nasty.

Chara
Keith
Webber

I'm a homer with Keith - he plays a lot of minutes in an explosive offense, but Chara is a beast.

Both great. I'm a  Keith homer too, but they are so different it is hard to compare.

If players stopped wearing helmets there would be fewer concussions.  Helmets make your head hot and swells your brain making you more susceptible to head injuries.  You can trust me.

A late season bug went through my workplace a few weeks ago. Wiped out half the staff, they all missed at least a few days that week.

Now I'm hearing that Bruins/Habs might not start until Saturday? UGGGGHHHH!

At this point I'm rooting for every team with three wins to win their next game. F*ck game 7, let's get the second round started.

Even with a couple of 7s Habs/B's could start Thursday, by themselves.  I'm sure I heard that the other day.  They can't start before the 1st round is done, but that will be Wednesday latest...

They can't start Thursday because apparently they're getting the Garden ready for a graduation friday morning!

Yeah, game gonna be one rusty MF'er. Game 2 should be better.

There is also chatter about the CBC pushing for a primetime Saturday night game because the Habs are the only Canadian team in the playoffs and they just so happen to be matched up against their biggest rivals.

They will certainly play saturday night, because hockey night in canada. it's just whether or not it'll be game 1 or 2

They will want (if they can) to have hockey on Friday night too...  Looks like Thursday will dark.  They wont want 2 dark nights in a row during the playoffs...

CBC has as much right to dictate a start time as NBCSN.  And hey, 7pm lets you get your chores done in the afternoon.

I can't wait for the Canadiens to come to town. I'm already getting a kick out of the comments on the Montreal Gazette about the Bruins being goons and the refs are not going to call the small stuff.

Saturday night might just end up being dinner in the North End follow by shiatshow down on Canal Street date night with Mrs. Soopey.
