being an NHL Fan in general i am filled with excitement and joy right now. these playoffs have been nothing short of spectacular. every single playoff match is exciting and fun to watch. but mainly due to seeing certain teams playing well and really giving their fans something to cheer aboot. (ottawa, florida, phoenix, la, nashville). it would be good for the NHL if these teams made it beyond the 2nd round. why? cause it would bring spark to their franchises, and who knows maybe draw more fans. i say this because my Grandmother never watched hockey before 1998. never saw a game in her life. not living too far from DC she started watching the caps and the cup run they had. and even though they came up short against you know who.. , she still is a fan to this day.
and i know theres the whole ratings issue with tv. well in my opinion screw ratings. i think seeing these teams compete on national television would interest people and then they would say " wow i didnt know this team would get this far" or " jesus murphy this team is really good". this is why i love the NHL Playoffs. it gives teams you didnt think would make it past the first round the chance to shine, and bring out the best in them.
so my questions for you are : which of these 5 teams do you think can make a strong playoff run? and would you watch a Florida vs Phoenix or Ottawa vs Nashville Stanley Cup Final?
i know i will be. not just because i love the NHL, but also just because i can and you cant stop me
thank you for your time.
