Question: How much NHL do you watch?
Far less than I used to
A little less than I used to
The same as always
More than ever
Am not now and have not ever really been a fan

No heart attack...a ruptured spleen, but he's out for the remainder of the season...of course, the Rangers don't have much of a season left:

Seeing as the previous series all ended early I can't believe the NHL waits almost a week to start the next round.None of them have NBA teams still playing so why does the NHL as the minor major league sport here wait to continue the Stanley Cup playoffs.

As for the next round I'm going with the Penguins and Red Wings both in 6 but over at Fox Sports the inside hockey folks are picking the Flyers and Stars both in 7.That said there aren't any teams head and shoulders above the others so anything is possible.The way the NHL is set up nowdays it's easy to fall or rise.Witness what happened in Buffalo and Philly this year.

I kind of see your point, but it does allow teams to prepare themselves well, ala the NFL. That could make for better hockey in the end.

I'd love the Flyers to make the Finals, and I'm about sick of the Red Wings...

Let's go, underdogs!

Yeah, I saw that one.

Hockey fans are their own special rabid breed, that's for sure.

If I read the start time right for the Sunday game it is not on NBC but on cable.I can't believe the NHL is so second rate in the U.S. that it could not be worked around the golf coverage.They had a game last weekend on NBC but for the semi's relegate it to cable. Embarrassed

It's sad that major newspapers aren't covering it.I find it hard to believe Chicago or Phil isn't sending a writer.As for the L.A. Times and Helene Elliot she is pretty much useless as is most of the L.A. Times sports page.Her opinions often stand out in a story even over the facts.She has a dislike of certain teams that comes through no matter what and while she may have a hockey pedigree her writing is lite on facts anf full of what she thinks.

As for the Cup it's a tough call Detroit could win it in 5 but I'm going with the Penn's youth and speed in 6.

Quite a game tonight.Wings were what like 34 seconds away of making my off the cuff remark of Wings could win it in 5 from coming true but my Pittsburgh in 6 can't come about.I hope it goes 7 as it's been a pretty good series.The NHL has to do something though about using common sense on goalie interference calls.The two on Detroit tonight especially the second one were goofy.The Red Wing  player is flying towards the corner of the net and barely clips him going by. Both the goalie and the player are at the corner of the net at that point.The only way he could not do that is by not rushing the net to get a shot off.

A 7 game series would do the NHL a lot of good.
