Classy Chizip... like I've been saying all along. Too bad for Ottawa, they played valiantly. Brodeur was shaky enough for the Sens to pull it off, but as always... the Devils stingy D had the answer.

Boo Ottawa fans... don't throw stuff on the ice.

It looks like there are two camps here at interference... chizzer and me with the Ducks, and the listener/sinister team of the Devils. Should prove interesting.

I am relieved though... I don't have to write love poetry to chizip. Unless you want me to ...

Now it's just a matter of whether Griffey will be writing pages and pages of Paul Kariya magic.

Ducks in 6 (like I've been saying all along)

PS- by all along, I mean after Det was eliminated.

Classy post, Cujo. The Devils simply are an offensive sucking machine. They're like a vaccuum cleaner that sucks away anything resembling skill and creativity. But, hey, it wins games. Too bad the ratings in the US are now about equal to Little House on the Prairie, though. The NHL will have to figure something out, or this sport is in big trouble down South.

Trust me the NHL was rooting for New Jersey. The 2 largest US markets are in the finals, which should be the best for their ratings.

I think it's fair to say you missed the point.

Yes, the Canadian Sucking Machine is going down on America.

Was that your point Mikey?

lmao.

Chizer, no, my point is that the ratings are suffering in a big way right now (regardless of two American teams making it to the finals) because of the defensive, dragging to a stand still hockey that's being played. Yes, two American teams in the finals is much more economically viable for NHL, but just imagine how much more viable it would be if people actually cared? That's my point.

I just came here real quick to check the final outcome.


I swear I didn't watch tonight, honestly! The place I was at was showing basketball (ps - Pistons ).


OK, I guess I am on the Sinister bandwagon now (esp after being made a *true* honorary Canuck by Michael tonight, lol ) and will break out my dusty, red NJ Devils jersey this weekend!


GO DEVILS!!!

More people here in the US need to watch hockey.

i think ratings have a lot more to do with poor marketing and player promotion than the stlye of play

i think people are too worried about ratings, who cares? tons of people watch stupid ass reality tv, does that make it good? no

hockey has its own niche of die hard fans, who are bigger fans than any other sport, so who cares if the ratings arent that good

Okay, just for you, I'll make this not about ratings, but simply for the good of the game. Ask most hockey purist -- heck, ask any big fan who knows the game -- and they'll tell you they'd rather see an Ottawa/Vancouver/St.Louis/Colorado, etc style of hockey at this time of year, than say the Devils and the Ducks. It's as simple as that.
