I try to but I can't. My attempts look worse then Crosby's peach fuzz.

I usually grow what I can, which is a bastardized Toews look but we end up going and losing 2 or 3 in a row so I have to shave it.

Asian + attempt at facial hair = 2011's Mason Raymond beard

I have a year round beard and keep it trimmed to the #2. If we get out of the first round I might go crazy and grow it out to the #3

The correct answer is yes.

Should have waited until the start of the playoffs for this so we could all post our beards. Or someone could start another thread later I guess.

As an 18 year old, I can grow a pretty gnarly beard.

I didn't get a haircut throughout the entire 2011 season + playoffs, and grew a playoff beard.

I vowed after that debacle I vowed to never do it again. I won't

You get tired of people crossing the street to get away because of my general thuggish appearance...

Grew a playoff beard and didn't get a haircut for 2011. After the 2nd period of game 7 of the SCF I shaved my beard and drove to the barber. I still think to myself "What if I had waited till the end of the game?" Haunts me to this day.

I made a commitment in January 2012 to not shave my beard or cut my hair until the Canucks won a Stanley Cup. I may have made a terrible mistake.

the only answer in this poll should be "yes, because it's already there from the rest of the year"

Some years I try, but it usually winds up a playoff goatee. Every time I try to grow a full beard I end up shaving it after about three weeks max. Just can't get past the itchy stage; had a mustache and goatee since I was about 20, but never did the full beard. I always end up with pimples hiding in it, ingrown hairs, clawing my face off from the itching...not fun. Or pretty.

I have the body of a 13-year-old and so I'm incapable of growing anything more than a rudimentary teenstache.

I find that if I just shave the neck most of the itching goes away.

Almost always have a bushy beard, well until some sort of family function that i get harassed enough to shave it before. Thankfully when playoff time rolls around an those family functions come up, the harassment doesn't come haha.

Yeah, I never try the neck. It's my cheeks that drive me nuts, right down by the jawline in the first few inches from the edge of my goatee. Oh, and beside my ears. In my fantasies, I usually try to go for a reddish/blond William Riker kind of beard, but it never works out. It usually winds up as a "Denis Leary in Demolition Man meets babbling street lunatic" kind of look.

And oh yeah, I remembered another reason I end up shaving before too long. My wife doesn't like the full beard (or at least the growing-in stage) for reasons that will be deleted if I elaborate.

Similar to everyone else, can't grow a beard if my life depended on it but I will try nonetheless.

I've been full beard since November. Only let it go insane twice though.

It's more of a playoff duster than a beard but I do it anyways.

I have the same. Only trim it when the girlfriend gets on my case. But it gets especially crazy for the playoffs.

There needs to be a "kind of" option for people like me who cant grow a proper beard.

Nope.

I try to avoid any jinx/superstition/etc.

If we're a good team, we're a good team.

My facial hair isnt consistent on all areas of my face. It is really only on my chin and neck with some on my jaw. I call it the scarf

For that reason a dont grow playoff beards.

I grow hair on my face. Only the most generous of souls would call it a "beard" though.
