Can you imagine the Leafs and the Habs playing each other in the first round??
I would love that because we would definitely kick their sad blue and white asses.

Canucks are currently losing 5-2 in the 2nd. I'd say that at this point the season is over for us. This is fucking ridiculous.

I'm listening online, since I don't have the channel that the game is airing on. I'm almost glad I can't see this atrocity.

The radio announcers have been pretty silent in the last few minutes.

The team cannot continue to play like this if they even expect to make it to the playoffs.

Firstly, it's now 6-3. The Nucks played a shitty first ten minutes of the second and let in three goals, but settled down and got one back before the intermission. Of course, the Avs just got one to start the third. So this game might be gone, unless the Nucks get one in the next 5 minutes. But it's definitely NOT an "atrocity". Yeesh.

And as for "the season is over" - you know the Nucks are 7th right now, right? It's not like they lose and they're out of the playoffs with no chance to get back. Lose this game and the divvy's probably gone, but it's going to take a pretty epic collapse to miss the playoffs entirely at this point.

FYI, it's on TSN - you live in Canada, and if you have basic cable, you've got the game.

Don't be so pessimistic.

I tend to be dramatic and over-exaggerate when I watch or listen to hockey. Give me a bit of time and I'll get over myself.

I can be pessimistic at times when it comes to the Canucks, because this sort of collapse in good playing often happens when it's most important for them to be playing well. I'm not giving up by any sense of the means, I just hate to seem them play that way, and take stupid penalties.

I have basic cable, but TSN isn't included in that package in my area.

So tell me about these "play offs". What happens in them? How does one get there?

I'm not very familiar with these "play offs" you speak of either...

I think April might know something

Well, not that I'm any expert, but your team does have to actually show up to more than half of the time during the regular season.

And for future reference, consider me shocked if they make it past the second round this year. It's been a little like 92-93 all over again.

Yeah, but if they play, like, one solid period every, say, 2 or 3 games - that's not GOOD ENOUGH?! What do these people want? Come on!



Yo, elfa, I have it on good authority that these "play offs" don't really exist. They're just computer simulations - like video games - set up by The Man that owns the TV Stations. I can believe this because in my computer simulations - back from a few years ago - the Islanders were damn near unstoppable. And if they could be stopped, there was this option called "Easy" they could use to come back and still win by like 17 if they chose. So don't believe the hype. It's not real anyhow.

I think it's pretty much pass/fail. If the NHL had wild cards (or do they, thank you five hundred rule changes in the time I haven't been paying close attention) that might help your and elfa's cause.

It's funny and ironic when I say it, annoying when others say it.

We'll be eliminated in T-minus 5 hours.
