    Preds v Sens is my preference. I'd be happy with either as champ. Ottawa has a BIG hill to climb though.

    So does this somewhat vindicate the Blackhawks a little bit? While the sweep was bad at least they lost to the eventual Western Conference Champion.

    Not at all. Hawks were completely embarrassed, scoring in just 2 of the 13 periods. In the annals of team sport, never has a #1 seed been so thoroughly dominated by a #8.

    No moral victories here.

    Senators looked really weak and tired in OT, it was only a matter of time before Burgh ended their hopes.

    Fuck Canada?

    We've talked at length about how parity in sports actually doesn't really help drive up (national) interest and that dynasty and super teams are actually good since people want to see team lose. This is a good article about the contrast in NBA/NHL:

    https://sports.yahoo.com/news/learned-nhl-parity-actually-insanely-bad-132527629.html

    I think all Hawks fans wish there was a lot more flexibility in keeping our good players. Also the format is a problem, like PIT vs COL in the first round. Watching PIT vs OTA, it's clear the Senators aren't as talented. The Penguins created a lot more scoring chances, a lot more good scoring chances, but Anderson kept the Senators in it these past 2 games.

    CLB, not COL :ridiculous::furious:

    Article is alright, but this whole "8 seed" shit needs to stop.

    I mentioned during the Hawks vs Preds series how I couldn't stand it when people kept referring to the Preds as the 8 seed.

    The guy whose coattails they have ridden needed to make a save and just didn't come up big he way he has all playoffs.

    Saw the 3rd after +1s graduation. Preds must've hit 2-3 posts.

    That goal wash out was some horseshit. Pens managed to get all the breaks in this series.
