And that amazing one-two combo of saves Varlamov had on Crosby and Gonchar....

Fleury has been solid as well, it really is the showcase series for both scoring and goaltending so far, Gary Bettman must be praying for 7 games...

I don't follow hockey much, but I enjoy going to Stars games and always hope for them to do well. That being said, playoff hockey is just a blast to watch. I watched the entire Caps/Penguins game last night and was just in awe.

My new found obsession with NHL 09 certainly hasn't hurt. Amazing game.

Absolutely horrible call at the end of the Detroit game that may have cost them the game, and perhaps the series. Atrocious. I mean, why is video replay there in the first place?

Not applicable because once they blow the whistle it's dead. With the use of replay I'd like to see the refs instructed to hold off a bit before blowing a play dead.

Wow, just when you thought Sid the Kid couldn't be a bigger whiner, they kept throwing hats on the ice.

Detroit is actually looking pretty... average against the Ducks, two upsets in a row?

I can't stand Anaheim, but goddamn they step it up in the playoffs. Scott Neidermeyer really is an amazing defenseman. I've been watching him, and man, that guy controls the rink when he's out there. I always thought Lidstrom was better, but not anymore.

When people say "Southern Ontario", what does that mean? Isn't Toronto Southern Ontario? Where do they want to put the Coyotes?

Yeah, that is all over the news here. Toronto could potentially support another team but I wouldn't be surprised if they go with Hamilton, if they go. The NHL brass - Bettman in particular - hates Jim Basille and they tend to shoot him down every time he tries to pull something like this.

Also, I despise the Ducks as well - Chris Pronger bothers me the most. I think it's because he has a small head, he looks like a little kid with an oversized helmet on...

He also has really small feet for a guy his size, they're smaller than mine easily, like 8 or 9 (shoe size, not skate).

When Chris first came up he looked eerily like Doogie Howser. He doesn't anymore (IMO) but he did back then.

Wouldn't Bettman want to avoid a team moving to Canada from the US south as that would show his experiment down there isn't going as well as he thinks?

Another team in southern Ontario is a no-brainer. This is probably the centre of the ice hockey universe. It makes sense to me.

I actually watched a show last night on Radio-Canada (the French CBC) that chronicled the birth and death of the Quebec Nordiques, but focused on the intense rivalry that existed between them and the Montreal Canadiens. Games between these teams would always be such bitter encounters. It was good for hockey.

kind of like Toronto/Ottawa?

Other than Quebec City, is there another city in Quebec that you think could support an NHL franchise?

Glad to see the Canucks play well last night. I was surprised that Chicago was as sloppy as they were, especially since they were in front of their home crowd. Oh well, doesn't bother me as long as the Canucks are winning!

The only frustrating thing for me is that there's going to be a game on Saturday night, and I won't be able to watch, as I'll be in the States at a bachelorette party. I have people lined up to text me the scores, but it's not the same, especially if the Canucks win the series that night.

No. Maybe Laval, which is the province's second-largest city (500,000 people) but it's actually more of a suburb of Montreal than anything else.

I'd support a team in Quebec and/or Winnipeg. Sure Bettman will have to admit some of his ill-conceived southern expansion was a bust, but he can also show that he's able to admit that he was wrong in certain cases. But not all teams in the Sun Belt are floundering. The Dallas Stars have a decent fan base (and Impy, NHL 09 is great!), the Ducks, Sharks, and even the Hurricanes now have a rabid following from a group of fans.

And I'd love to see a team in Southern Ontario if for no other reason than I'd want them to win a Cup before the Leafs. Now that would be all kinds of awesome!
