I love the playoffs too ;)   It means the season is almost over :P

Soon I'll be able to watch Sportscenter and see something other than hockey.

Although, hasn't the world's lamest sport (baseball) just started again?

Come on football season!... or at least the draft, that's soon I think :)

Ottawa will beat the Leafs,and all of western Canada well rejoice
Colorado will win the cup,of course.

I didn't say that something was wrong with it. It's just that it's "more boring than church." :P

Just because it doesn't have people preforming ridiculous dances after they score,doesn't mean it's boring  :P

That comes from teams who play the trap,IE New Jersey.I still want think the NHL should put a shootout after a regular season tie.Not the playoffs of course,that would be stupid

Actually, I was referring to Shodan trying to bring soccer into the discussion. Although hockey, also being possessed of the offside rule, is similarly fundamentally broken.

I WANT to be offsides, and leave me alone. :)

Exactly.  Now Shinty, there's a real game.  Possibly the most violent ball game on earth and definately the most fun.

FOOTBALL is the worst sport in the history of the universe.  It appalls me.  I much prefer rugby and shinty.  As my friend Alistair likes to say:  Football is a gentleman's game played by hooligans, rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen.

FOOTBALL
Yeah, i was gonna say football, but i went with what the majority probably know it as.

Fair enough i suppose (although isn't saying it appalls you a little extreme?), personally football's my favourite sport, although i'm starting to like rugby (much better than 'American Football', what the hell's all that padding for anyway!?).

No idea what shinty is though, care to enlighten me?

shinty is like a mixture of rugby, hockey and a civil war ;D  I believe it was used to train highland warriors in the agility of mind and body needed to gain their fierce reputation on the battlefield. 

it's not football itself that appalls me, it's more the religious fanatacism that is associated with it

Hey don't count out Vancouver just yet, i mean if they play the way they're supposed to.....then Vancouver in seven (i just don't see Calgary winning three in a row).  And hopefully anyone besides Colorado, Detroit and New Jersey will win the cup.....give someone else a chance to taste victory :)

Our fanaticism scares you?  :D
After seeing some of the 'riots' immediately following certain games in the UK I was mortified.  It's our baseball fans that riot here.. and, even then, the drunks bust up their own town the idiots.  Perception is a fickle thing, inn't it.  ;)

For the record, I've never been involved in a riot but readily admit to yelling at the TV just like the next person.  :)
