Boston deserves this one. My housemate is in heaven, because she's been a B's fan for eons. I hope they bring it back to an Original Six team again. It's been pretty neat to have an O6 team win two of the last three Cups. Let's hope Boston makes it 3 of 4. GO BRUINS!!!!!

Oh yeah, there is one other thing...bears love to eat fish. :lol:

Is it just me or do Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton look like cavemen? Good players though.

Don't really care all that much for either team, but when all else fails, root for the Original Six.

It'll be Vancouver in 4 or 5, though.

Still have some Sammy love going on here. Would like to see the Ugliest Swede Line (even if they're not playing together, I like calling them that) raise the Cup. Definitely feel for them not having won in 40 years. I picked them at the beginning of the playoffs as my team to root for should evil things happen to the Wings. Not the same as picking them to win, so I'm pleased that they've come this far.

Canuckleheads in 6. Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Really, REALLY hate vancouver but love Boston! Not sure how this series is going to pan out, but if feb. 26. 2011 is any indication Ill be a happy man!

That was a game where the Canucks out-hit the Bruins nearly into oblivion but lost 3-1 (empty netter). It was also around the time when the Canucks defence was so beat up that they were down to about the number 14 defenceman on the depth charts. Even the call-up replacements for the injured top 6 were getting injured. That game is not a very valid comparison to draw any conclusions from, other than that the Canucks defence is incredibly deep considering they continued to play better than .500 hockey through that time.

Boston deserves this one. My housemate is in heaven, because she's been a B's fan for eons. I hope they bring it back to an Original Six team again. It's been pretty neat to have an O6 team win two of the last three Cups. Let's hope Boston makes it 3 of 4. GO BRUINS!!!!!

An orca is not a fish. If a bear ever tried to eat an orca it would be taken back into the food chain and converted into a brown slick on the ocean within about 24 hours. :yowza:

I hate both teams, but I hate boston less. Why can't they both lose?


I'm with you. But at least we don't have to hear about Crosby or Ovechkin.
Do or do not. There is no try

Lightning were fun to watch and I was rooting for them, but I think Bruins will match up better against the Canucks. And I wouldn't be surprised if Canucks choke. I am actually surprised they made it this far without choking. (though they did kinda choke in round 1).

I think Bruins hold the advantage in goaltending and defence. While Canucks hold the advantage in PP. Should be a close one, much closer than people are giving credit for. I can see Tim Thomas completely dominating the Cancucks offense. Bruins offense is suspect at times, but they sure can score that timely goal when it matters most. I think Bruins are too underrated. Canucks are overrated imo.

EDIT to ADD:

I hope refs don't hand Canucks gimme games like they did in the Sharks series. If so, I won't watch this series. That's why I stopped watching the Canucks/Sharks series. Reffing was bias and brutal.

Tampa got eliminated, so I don't really care who wins. I just hope it's over soon.

Well I'm certainly rooting for Boston for two main reasons. 1 They are an Orginal Six Team. 2. I can't stand Canadian Teams. With that being said I do think that Vancouver will win. I hope it's a good long series but I just feel that The Canucks have to much firepower and depth on the roster that it will just take over at some point and smother the Bruins. I'm excited to see a Goalie Match-up like Louie and Timmy that one should be good but in the end I think I will have to accept that a Canadain Team is going to Win the Cup this season. Best of Luck to both teams but.... Go Bruins!!!!

Not trying to start anything with you by any means....

But what is your rationale for hating Canadian teams?

Don't a lot of Canadians hate American teams?

Let's go Boston!
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

It's not Detroit, and it's not Tampa, since the only reason I wanted them to do well was because of the Yzerman connection. So.....thus I don't really care who wins. I don't hate either team, I just don't give a damn which one wins. I have no interest, no matter how passive, in either team. It would be different if say, either San Jose or Pittsburgh were in it, because that would give me a reason to watch since I hate both teams and want to see them lose any time they take the ice.

Let's go B's!!

No offense to the Canadian folk, but it pisses me off that during the season you all have your rivalries but then it's Canada's team for the cup.
