NHL Playoffs Thread...
« on: April 07, 2008, 02:32:00 pm »
Sorry to create yet another hockey thread, but I'm quite certain I won't be able to stomach all the Caps talk in the other threads, especially if they meet the Pens in the next round.  I'm happy they made it, good for them.  Just not as happy as others.
 
 Therefore, I'm creating a non-Caps Hockey Playoffs Thread.  So, for those that wish to discuss their favorite non DC Area teams or make predictions, this is the place.
 
 WEST
 
 Wings in 5
 Sharks in 5
 Wild in 6
 Ducks in 6  
 
 EAST
 
 Habs in 5
 Pens in 5
 Flyers in 6
 Rangers in 6
 
 
 I don't like the prospect of the Ducks having to go through the Stars, the Red Wings and then the Sharks just to make it to the Stanley Cup final.  I see some sleepless nights in my future.

in canuckia, every first-round game featuring a canadian team will be aired by the CBC - public broadcasting, free to all, cable not required.  i think that's pretty cool... for the canuckians.
 
 another version of the TV schedule  here.

Without a proper revenue generating TV deal, it's a wonder the Canuckia teams are so hurting for revenue.  ;)

Montreal over Boston is the only series I'd even consider it in. Certainly none in the West.
