This years playoffs are awesome.

The NHL playoffs are always better when Oh Canada! is played at the start of the game. Good on the Habs.

It was a bit disconcerting listening to parts of the game on Team 1040. I hear names like Bergeron and Bourque being mentioned in a Habs/Bruins game and I instinctively picture them with different jersey's on… Guess that dates myself a bit.

You forgot the biggest douche - Marchand (although he is an New Brunswick Anglophone). Great series. I've never been a Habs fan, but I may be persuaded to convert if they win the Cup.

I'm really getting into this book right now (btw it is a real book!). Its a tale with an ironic twist. A real page-turner - I want to know if someone gets F-in' killed in the end.

As a New Brunswicker, I have to point out that turd of a Bluenoser is from Nova Scotia.

Gallagher dumping Chara was awesome.

Sorry, you are right - he's a Blue Noser, not a Herring Choker. :)

Lots of brah's from Boston here. They are generally referred to as Mass-holes

The inner anti-boston-fan in me cheered a little, but that's all I got.

Same here. I was like "Yay Habs?" The Rangers win was kinda the same. The playoffs have been good, but haven't lined up with my personal tastes.

I think I want LA to take it again. Not many teams win the cup 2 of 3 years as underdogs.

Not sure how LA can be considered an underdog when their roster is largely the same as it was the past 2 seasons? I guess if they don't score a lot of goals that makes them an underdog.

Have to admit a LA/Mtl final would be a goalie battle. Probably 7game first goal wins deal

First of all I'm sad to see Iginla not have a chance to win his first cup. He's such a class guy [HTML_REMOVED] one of the better players in the league.

As much as I have always hated the Habs with a passion, it's good to see a Canadian team still in it. Carey Price from Anahim Lake, BC.

Chara must have played soccer, the way he dives so much.

If you seed lower than 4th in the conference the odds of winning the cup is pretty dismal. A 6th seed has about 3% chance. I would call that an underdog.

Habs Vs Chi for Final…original 6

If this happens I will def watch being that I am a Hab's fan , raised that way and proud of it.

However , like many have commented this years playoff have been great entertainment, although I didn't watch MTL/Bos game 7 as I went riding instead…priorities in check

so you mean top seeds like the sharks and the blues have a better chance of winning than the kings?

context is everything

Meh, once the playoffs start, you might as well throw away the regular season rankings as any Canucks fan can attest to.
