The thing of all of this is that the only teams left that play exciting are the rangers and the caps. LA/PHX/NJD are just plain BORING to watch. I've got better ways of watching a "TRAP"

You can add Rangers to that list. That...is boring hockey. They are a defensive team first, and lucky to score more than 1 or 2 goals a game. Caps/Devils will make for a more exciting Conf final, imo. I pray that LA beats PHX because it would be atrocious to have to watch the-team-that-no-one-cares-about in the Cup Finals.

This takes me back to the Sabres and Stars way back when...first final I refused to watch. Did it the next year with NJD and Dallas but then after that I watched it again.

I may have just lost my playoff pool, but oh brudda is that pint o' Guinness gonna taste sweet. Subway series it is.

And I love reading how all you Vancouver CanGolf fans find these playoffs boring. LMAO...

There hasn't been 4 such fine goaltenders in the semis in my memory. Low scoring games are what great hockey is all about. Something not understood in LotusLand.

Oh yes. Well earned. I feel for the Caps. If they'd won I'd be rooting for them. Should be hell of a series coming up.

Hope they win one in case they do get relocated.

Agreed. All but the "Go Rags!!!" bit. High scoring games all too often lead to ridiculous scores seen in the Pitts-Philly series which leads to very little third period drama. I'd take a 2-1, or 1-0 game any day. And I can't remember guys getting down in front of shots like they are in these playoffs.

Boo...... :bluemad:
Looks like I have a couple of beers to buy. I'll be back in Taiwan on the weekend.

As far as low/high scoring games go, I won't clamor for some of the crazy scores we saw in that PIT/PHI series, but 1-0 hockey games? Come on. Borefest. I want a bit more action than that. And I'm a goalie guy too, played the position as a kid, and follow the NHL's premier guys closely. Tight, low scoring games are not the be all and end all of good hockey. Good lord...

And Toe, don't you for a second lump me in with Vancouver fans. Not for a second! :ohreally:
