They always play great hockey.And if you mention the last time they played each other in the playoffs,i WILL cry,I assure you.Poor Patrick.What happened?

I had an opportunity to go to a Rufus Wainwright concert recently.I didn't have the 35 bucks,so my sister took someone else.You'd think a sibling would lend you some money in times of dire need  ::)

I believe the original lyrics are by Lenord Cohen,  great song though.

a LITTLE?  :D

Yeah,he originally did the lyrics.Jeff Buckely also covered it,and it's very well done,just him and his electric guitar,though no distortion so it sounds very nice  :)

Jeff Buckley's version is my favourite by far.  I believe that rendition of the song has additional lyrics compared to the original Leonard Cohen.

Leonard Cohen's songs to slit your wrists to albums can be a bit depressing, but it isn't so bad if you don't listen to the lyrics. :).

Leonard Cohen doesn't depress me that much, it's more people like James Taylor that get me down

Jeff Buckley has the voice for it when Rufus Wainwright doesn't.And Leonord Cohen can be depressing,but if you actually listen to the man try to sing,it's even more depressing

And James Taylor depressing? I don't see it.

Fire and Rain?  Don't Let Me Be Alone Tonight?  Sweet Baby James?  Ok, he's not THAT depressing, but a lot of his songs have a sad significance for me.

Eh,the lyrics are depressing,but the music isn't.Don't get me wrong,I love James Taylor though.Though,more depressing if they mean something to you,as you said.

But for me,it's Elliott Smith(rest in peace) that makes me wanna jump off the nearest roof.

Crap.Hijacked thread.Um.Todd Bertuzzi should be killed,and Peter Forsberg will lead my boys back to the finals!

the excitement, the drama, the highs and lows, the coolest game in the world or so it claims..... :)
but it's mainly popular in countries that have winter....no quite the same in countries that constantly experience 25+ degrees Celcius (or 80+ degrees Fahrenheit) all year round

soccer which i also like is also quite popular thus quite similar to hockey in that regard :D

Actualy hockey's not nearly as popular as soccer globally.  We just have lots of Canadians here to fanactically induce conversations about hockey.
