Thread: Official NHL Playoffs Thread

  1. #1

    Default Official NHL Playoffs Thread

    It doesn't seem there are many NHL enthusiasts on this board, but I figured I'd get this thread going anyways. To me the NHL Playoffs is the most exciting sporting event next to the World Cup of Soccer. No matter if my favorite team made it to the race for the Stanley Cup or not, I always manage to watch as many games as possible, as I always have a few other favorite teams and players I like to follow.

    My favorite team is the New York Islanders. (I can feel the flames coming already) Yes, I know they don't deserve to be in the Playoffs after their comedy of errors at the end of the qualifying match against the Devils yesterday afternoon, but they managed to eek themselves by anyways. I don't expect them to get past the Buffalo Sabres, but that's what I love about the NHL Playoffs. You got 7 games to make anything possible. Sure, you can say this about many sports, but to me the NHL is the most exciting. The level pf play is increased ten fold as every player, even ones in the shadows, tend to bring their A game & rise to the challenge. This is where rivals are made and heroes are born.

    I'm very excited about the Aneheim Ducks vs Minnesota Wild. I would've tried to snatch tix faster if I knew this would be the matchup. Now, that I live in SoCal the Ducks have become my local team to watch. However, I've been a big fan of the Minnesota Wild since their inception to the NHL.
    This should be a fantastic series.

    My second favorite team, next to the Islanders are the Detroit Red Wings. I've been a huge fan of theirs since 1989 when they esentially became team Russia. Sergei Federov & Vladamir Konstantinov are my all time favorite players. Though they're not on the team anymore, they still have many players I love to watch. They're my number one pick for the Western Conference. I'd love to see it come down to either them, the Ducks of Aneheim, or the Minnesota Wild.

    As for the Eastern conference, I'd have to go with the Buffalo Sabres unless the Islanders make it out alive. After that, it's anyone but the NY Rangers. I will be rooting for any team that is up against the Rangers. The Islanders and the Rangers are possibly sports biggest rivals. Therefore, there is no team in all of sports that I feel true hatred for other than the New York Rangers. So, go THRASHERS!!!!

    So, are there any other people on this board that loves the NHL as much as me??

    haha, I guess the Coyotes don't count as one these days, eh? At least they were more of a team than Philadelphia.

    Curtis Joseph. Jeremy Roenick. Mike Ricci. Owen Nolan. If this were 1999 we'd have a hell of a team.

    I had season tickets to the Coyotes from when they first came here until this year when I let them go to the person I was splitting them with.And I just heard he let his go now,too.The thing that pissed me off the most was that for four or five years they kept promising,"If you renew your season tickets now,you'll be guaranteed tickets to the All-Star Game" and then they canceled it(because of the Olympics) and made no effort to make it up to the fans.

    The year before the strike,I went to 16 games and didn't see them get a win until the very last game of the year.They found the most interesting ways to get a tie or loss though,including blowing a 3 goal lead in the last 3 minutes to what was then the league's worst team(the Penguins without Lemieux,who were on a road losing streak of 15 games until coming here).
    The new arena is really nice,though.

    you're bang on with this...the difference between NHL regular season and playoff games is HUGE...i'm Canadian and i don't really watch all that many regular season games, but when the playoffs roll around i'm glued...
    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.

    Eastern champs : Buffalo

    West champs: Detroit

    Stanley cup champs : Buffalo


    Im a Leaf fan for life, and i dont even care they missed the playoffs. They missed by 1 point that was decided in a shoot-out, 1 point isint even a win. I am satisfied enuff with knockin the Habs out off the playoffs.
    Good luck to islanders anyway, LOL. SWEEP!

    And as usuall Sens are gonna choke like every other year
    CHOKE DOGS!!!

    I am cheering for pens, for the simple fact they play Sens, i hate the Sens

    The sens and pens will be the most entertaining series for sure.My nucks and stars series will probaly be a little slow for a non hardcore fan of either team.

    Also, I was so pissed when Minnesota lost the Northstars. Go Wild!
