Well, since this last series has wiped out any respect I had for the Sharks, gotta go with Vancouver here. I don't hate the Sharks - I have disdain for them.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Green men taunting Thornton = pure win

I think that's one of the things I'll be watching for in this series sadly. Joey T just might break down and cry if the green guys find some good material to insult him with :lol:

In all honesty I don't give two s***s who wins but I would take the nucks anyday over sharks

Balanced is probably what I am, although that's just a polite way to say that you don't do anything very well.

I voted Vancouver. Not because the Sharks beat us, but I'd like to see the Cup go to Canada for a change. Hell that city is almost as hockey crazy as Montreal. The people of Vancouver are desperate for the Cup. I say, let them have it.

And though I don't like Bobby Lou that much, I like Marleau and Heatley even less. I'm neutral on the Sedins but do tend to like Swedes (hey I'm a Wings fan, right?) So I'm leaning Canucks looking at the roster.

If it was possible for me to care less about this series than I already do, I would.

Go Canucks! not that I really care about them, but I refuse to root for a team that has Joe Thornton on it.

I'll probably try to focus on Clowe and Kesler and pretend many of the other players don't exist.


It'll be interesting to see if the top stars on both teams remain invisible this series, or if they start earning their paychecks.



(yes I know they don't technically get paid for the playoffs)

Could it be possible for both teams to lose, please?

If it wasn't for the Carolina vs Edmonton Finals, this would be the least cared about series of all time for me. I don't even like hearing the announcers mention that its going on.

Not gonna lie, I was hoping for this matchup once the playoffs started. Not because I thought the Sharks would have an advantage over the nucks, but because one of these tortured franchises is guaranteed a shot at a Cup. 40 years and 20 years without. That plus when I go to the games, I wont have to hear any road fans talking about Cups won since they've been around twice as long with just as many Cups. :P

Where's the option to nuke the series from orbit? It's the only way to be sure.

Game on. They sure took their time to drop the puck.

Thornton thrown out of the circle and nearly given a delay of game.
