and I think an all Canadian finals would be bad for the sport. I'm sure it would get everybody in Canada all horny, but people in the US would care even less than normal. And let's face the facts, the NHL needs American support in order to survive. The ratings are low enough as it is, something that would make them even lower wouldnt be good.

That's a good point Chizip, but long term I think it would be the beginning of a positive trend. Eventually, the saleries would have to hit a cap in order for the NHL to sustain itself. So, I'm still cheering for an all Canadian final!

Ah, 92-93, the year that Gretz took the Kings to the finals *sigh*
Again, thanks for the love-in!

Lately, I've been agreeing more and more with the chizzer... should I see a doctor? It would be nice for Canada, but as far as the long term success of the sport... the American market needs to be saturated (that means at least one finalist needs to be American based).

Beyond all that though, I still don't think Ottawa has "it"... at the beginning of the playoffs, I thought New Jersey was the team to beat, and there's no reason to doubt that now. So, to keep with consistency I'll say New Jersey in 7... but will anyone be awake by the time the series gets that far? The trap = bad version of zone defense... something must be done I tell you (no wonder there aren't a lot of American viewers, there are very few entertaining teams left... except Vancouver, and maybe Anaheim... just for the miracle factor).

NJ is the most boring team on the face of this earth.

I still have nightmares about 95.

As for Wanderer..yeah, he admitted this morning that he hardly checks here anymore.....(although he and I talk all the time outside of here)...

But he definitely won't have a reason to check here in about a week or so!!

First, it wasn't even a full season, only 48 games, then the stinking DEVILS won!!! (Not that I am biased or anything, with Detroit being the runner-up ... it was sweeter, though, to win it in '97.)

The Blues-like history hurts.
