Any hockey fans out there? I know it's the day before the Olympic break, so a thread on the NHL maybe isnt' that appropriate, but I had to anyways!
I am a huge Canucks' fan, and I'm so happy that they've finally turned it on since Christmas and played like they should. They played Boston tonight, and it was an awesome game, lots of flow and end to end action, and great goaltending. But dammit, the Bruins won 2-1 in OT. ;)
Who's your favourite team, and who do you think is going to take home the Cup this year?
I'm going to say the Av's take it, they're such a clutch team, and I think the Flyers could get into the final. The Red Wings are a great team, but I think the condensed season, the Olympics, and their age is going to catch up with them. What do you all think?

Hi Mitch,

I am a very big Red Wings fan ever since '96.
So no suprise to say that I believe they will win the Stanley cup this year.
It has to be this or the next year that they win and after that they really need some new young players.
I see the Avs as the biggest treath(as always) even without Forsberg.

Well New Jersey is doing not too well at this moment.
Philly is also a contender, I'm glad they got rid of Lindros, coz they were damn close even without him last year.
Last year the Wings lost coz Yzerman and Shanahan were injured!:mad:
Anyway Sergei is my favorite player also, but that has nothing to do with Anna.
I am glad for him he has such a hot girlfriend!

good thing they have that lead....i hope it serves as a cushion for when they get thrown to a lot of road games at the end of the season...

as for the devils...they're always a threat for me....it's gonna take some explaining to do though....

do you think the western conference has so much more depth than the eastern, that it's already an advantage for anyone coming from the eastern side come the play-offs? since the teams from the western (col, det) always seem banged up to me when they reach the later parts of the play-offs....

The Devils are a bit strange, yes.
They have been #1 in the East in the past only to crash out in the 1st round!
But they should be one of the NHL's top teams.

I dont know, in the last years the West almost every time takes the title!
