Think I am favoring a Kings-Pens final, with LA winning.

Anaheim, Washington, and Chicago are all in with a shot too though.

Ducks are going to do something. I hope they at least win the conference again.

A lot of teams facing elimination today and Friday. Interesting to see if Detroit or Chicago can rebound. Philly may have won 1 game but I'd be surprised if they win 3 in a row.

Ducks really brought it back. The games they won were pretty decisive. Their losses were close.

Hopefully they come through tomorrow.

I sure as hell had the Kings/Sharks figured wrongly.

What bizarro world do we live in when the Blues, Caps, and Sharks all win playoff series? While the Hawks, Kings, and Bruins all either go out early or don't even make it?

Yeah I look at the bracket on NHL.com and have to do a triple take. I cannot believe what I am seeing.

Anyway, go Isles and Blues.

Meanwhile, it was basically front page news in Canada that "no Canadian teams were in the Playoffs" this year. Never mind that like 80% of the players are probably Canadian anyways. Oh, and it's led to the lowest TV ratings for the Playoffs basically ever, and it's out of people's minds entirely.

Meanwhile, Edmonton damn near won the "First Draft Pick" for like the fifth year in a row :).

Not blaming him for those teams failures this year, but I do get why Canadians tend to hate Bettman. His sun belt first philosophies are from a previous time and fail to recognize that Gretzky coming to LA was a unique situation.

No one cares about hockey in places like Phoenix and Miami. It will always be the weakest sister there. Stop fighting tooth and nail to keep or place teams in places where there is no interest regardless of population size. Get those teams in the Pacific Northwest and Quebec where someone will actually show up and there are fewer other sports to overshadow it. The idea that Florida (even considering eastern relocations) has two NHL squads while Washington and Oregon combined have zilch is hard to understand.

'Bout time they did that again. Crosby was supposed to be the next Gretzky, and he only wins a single Cup? I know we've lost the era of dynasties, but come on.

Twitter is obliterating the Toronto reporter who said "You can't win with [Phil Kessel]" and called him fat and lazy.

My favorite so far has been a shot of Kessel holding the Cup and saying "Look who finally decided to start lifting weights!".

The current era sort of resembles the mid 90's to mid 00's time. Each had four dominant teams.

Then it was the Red Wings, Devils, Avalanche, and Stars. Lately it has been the Blackhawks, Kings, Penguins, and Bruins.

Come to think of it, I wonder when we will see the next top level Canadian team? The last was the Oilers of the 80's and early 90's.
