Reasons to be excited for a better playoffs this year
Last year's playoffs were pppppretty boring IMO.. NJ taking their defensive style all the way to the top; the Minnesota-Anaheim Conference finals.. sure there were some things to be excited about.. the upsets by the latter teams.. Game 7 of the East Conference finals.. Anaheim taking it to Game 7.. but other than that it seemed like last year was a pretty boring playoff.. here's why I think this year will be better:
- Every team going into the playoffs (especially in the East, and in from places 5-8 in the West) are really equal.. no one knows what to expect.
-As a Canadian, its exciting to see all three Canadian teams in the East, and hopefully 2 in the west competing for the cup.
-Andrew Raycroft and David Abeischer are going to be tested.. itll be exciting to see how he reacts.
-Jose Theodore,Ed Belfour, Martin Brodeur.. (and the list goes on).. I'm a big fan of goaltending, and this year has been a great year for goalies.
- The Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs
- A potential Habs vs Leafs first round
-We may not see any NHL hockey next year.. so hopefully players will bring a high level of competition .
I have alot more to be excited about.. so I'm guessing alot of other people do too
