For me it has to be NHL playoffs. While I think generally the gold medal Olympic game is more exciting than the playoffs, its really the only good game in the Olympics. Where most of the playoffs are fun.

Olympic hockey has some of the top players but their thrown together and really don't gel like a real team that has played together for a whole season.
Individual efforts over a few games Vrs High intensity hard fought team play for 2 months

NHL playoffs AINEC.

The Olympics is like an All-Star game where players actually care about the result. The playoffs are pretty close, but I'll choose Olympics. Every four years is enough and makes it special.

Nothing beats NHL Playoffs. Olympic hockey is a close second but if we saw it as often as we saw NHL playoffs (every year) it would easily lose it's uniqueness. It's good it's only every 4 years.

Stanley Cup Finals specifically. Followed closely by Olympics. I still have the 2010 Gold Medal Game on my Xbox. Watch it every now and then.

In terms of enjoyment I gotta put Olympics first.

I didn't have a team for 15 years so I really had no one to get behind. The playoffs are amazing, but the Olympics let me cheer for Canada and its every 4 years.

If they were both every year then playoffs>Olympics.

In the current form Olympics>playoffs

Olympic hockey is great but single-game elimination doesn't cut it for me. Gotta go with NHL playoffs.
