I don't know about anyone else in here...

But its going to be really tough turning on the Pens-Flyers game on Friday, knowing that if the Rangers had a different route through the playoffs or if they had held the lead in game 1 they could have been right there in the finals - and not that far-fetched either IMHO.

Even though we've already turned the page in here, and it seems like a month since they've lost - When they drop that puck on friday and we see two teams from the Atlantic facing off to see who gets a chance to win the Cup its going to be really hard this time around.

I know, a lot of IFs, but i'm still shaking my head.

Even though they went out in 5, its harder to take than last year.

I've lost a little interest...

it is going to be very tough. I have a 7PM dinner so chances are I'll miss the entire game in any event.

I stopped caring after we lost for the last time. I'll pick it up again come the deciding game of the Finals. Hopefully Cindy and his ******* won't be there.

Boo Hoo, would have, could have, should have. I have a prior commitment on Friday so I won't get a chance to watch, but I'm looking forward to seeing more playoff hockey. If you want to ignore half the games, so be it: Dallas vs Detroit should be an interesting matchup.

Honestly I probably won't tune into that much of this series. I hope the Flyers win but if I already have plans or if the Yankees are on at the same time, I won't be tuning in.

When the Rangers got eliminated, it just seemed like all the time and emotion was drained and I lost interest in hockey until October...of course that lasted until the 2nd OT of the SJ/DAL game and it was gone. I'll watch a little, but I won't go out of my way.

I am not watching it. I simply don't care who wins who looses. I might watch the finals if Red Wings will play. Datsuk is my boy.

Won't be watching. If anything I'll watch the west coast games. I won't support the NHL's love fest with Crosbaby

I wont be watching. Crosby makes me sick and have to give my wife her "off-season" schedule.

I'll be watching it in hopes that the Pens get slaughtered by the Flyers. Just so I can finally get all of my bandwagon Pens fan friends to shut the hell up.

It is going to be able to watch any of those games because as much as I hate Philly as a team I'm starting to hate the Pen's equally and some of their fans are getting pretty annoying as well. But my love for the game of hockey will keep me watching.

I didn't know I hated the Pens so much that I'd root for the Flyers!!! Goes to show how strong the Atlantic Division was, eh?

If I lived anywhere else, I'd be hating on both of them. But living in Pittsburgh, I'm constantly bombarded with this garbage. Makes me sick.. really does.

Not only am I a die hard Rangers fan, Im a die hard hockey fan. I wont miss a single game of either series.

And by the way, Im not joining any teams bandwagon. I think all of that "Im routin for your team cause I hate so and so" is nonsense. Im a Ranger fan, period. No other team will ever get my support. I dont care who wins, I just want to see a well played, well officiated series that will help grab the attention of casual sports fan. I want all of these series to go 7 games and 5 overtimes

I'll probably follow wings/star closer than pens/flyers just cause I'm so damn disgruntled right now.

We need to get passed what has happened, though let us not ever forget nor should we ponder excesvilly over the failures of yesterday if not only to learn from them & move ahead.

I'll be honest too, I don't much care for this series because I don't like either team. I'm sure it will be exciting and all, but I'm probably only going to look at the box scores for this series, especially with final exams coming up. The West series actually intrigues me more, and it helps that I actually like both of those teams.

I will watch the finals though. Kind of hard to miss that

I am debating whether to watch or not. I want to see how the rest of the playoffs go. On the other hand, I have finals. I am pissed the Rangers lost and will be wondering what if for game one on Friday, but at least I will pass my tests.

Watching many of the NHL games this season has been a chore due to the inconsistent calls and zebras deciding many of the games. I may tune into the finals but I sure as hell am not going out of my way to watch.

Mmmm its not the ECF that will burn to watch for me. Watchingthe Flyers and Pens beat the crap out of each other will be fun actually.

Its the fact that one of them gets to go to the finals afterwards that sucks.
