NHL PLAYOFF THREAD
- 04-21-2010, 09:23 AM
So I have never really been a hockey fan. I went to a Columbus Bluejackets game the first year they became a franchise when I visted family in Ohio, but didn't fall in love. However, I need something to follow/watch now. I miss football and basketball is average at best. I don't consider baseball a sport. That being said, I have been watching the NHL playoffs the last two weeks and I love it more than words can describe. I chose a team when it began and went with Vancouver. I have been angry the last two games.

Nothing like playoff hockey to raise testosterone levels-better than any supplement. Cant believe the Flyers/Preds, wow. Ottawa/Montreal dont stand a chance now (and maybe never did). Coyotes had a chance to take a strangle hold but I fear they have lost momentum. Canucks have lost goaltending and if they win vs L.A. they wont go far.

Wow, cant believe Montreal. Good job knocking off #1 seed as well as Stanley Cup champs. This is turning out to be an interesting playoffs.

I think the sharks v. hawks will be a long series.

It's about time that the Sharks made it through. Thorton is still sucking but this could be the Sharks year. Hawks looked pretty good though. This Byfuglien fellow is a beast. Where did he come from?! Love da hockey.

Now the reason why Buff is considered an out of the blue player is because Chicago is damn near impossible to impress. He was brought in on a decently high salary, which many fans did not think he was worth. The committed Indian, which is a grassroots style program sold outside the stadium (and highly recommended for fans in Chicago) didn't like him to much. The pretty much considered him a fat sloth and an overpaid underachiever, which is actually pretty close to their real words used (since they are grassroots, titles such as "Quenville goes ****ing ape**** over last nights loss" are not uncommon).
To me he was always necessary, he was big, agressive, and best of all intimidating, which is something such a young team as the hawks desperately needed. Im sure many hockey fans in here will remember the days of enforcers, which have unfortunately dissapeared from the sport. Buff is like our enforcer. No one really wants to mess with him, and he stops opposing teams from hitting key players -- a definite plus.
Suddenly he learned that his size can significantly benefit the team if he just crashes the net after a shot, which is pretty much where the hat trick came from. I look forward to him continuing this until we lift a cup. I am also glad big buff is getting the recognition he has deserved.

I did hear a tidbit of his history on our sports network. Chicago is looking very good. I still cant believe Montreal. If they beat either Philly/Boston they could be very dangerous. Phily and Boston are decimated with key injuries. Makes for an interesting playoffs. I feel bad for hockey fans in ChiTown as I know Mr Wurtz has not been a great owner. Kind of reminds me of the Harold Ballard days in Toronto. But now it looks as though the Hawks will be good for a long stretch.

I knew Wurtz senior passed away. it was actually big news in Toronto and all the talk radio shows were discussing Chicago's 'new direction' when news hit that he had passed. Toronto is hockey town central so any signifigant news regarding pro hockey gets talked about and debated to no end!
