God rolly the goalie is looking quite pathetic. I feel we matchup really well against Tampa

Offense- Pretty much equal.
Defense- Canucks by a large margin.
Goalie- Canucks by a large margin.
Specail teams- Canucks, slightly.

Go Tampa!

I am. Isn't getting time off to rest/heal supposed to be one of the benefits of eliminating teams in fewer games? I know it's not a huge thing but it just bugs me. If I was Boston, though, and I managed to eliminate Tampa tonight, I'd be annoyed I don't get the couple extra days I earned for beating them in 6.

But I dunno, I don't see GM's and players complaing about it so obviously they don't think it's a big deal.

I think anyone of our opponents from this years playoffs would beat either of these teams in a 7 game series.

Tim Thomas has allowed 19GA in this series, in 6 games. He has been nothing short of brutal. He's lucky his team is able to outscore his struggles because the goalie on the other end is struggling even more.

Well that arguably could not have gone better for us; lots of doubt for each team and a Game 7...meaning we have until Wednesday to heal up.

I agree. Chicago would tune either of these teams in a 7 gamer.

Any legitimate concern about the extended layoff, ie rest vs rust?

I'm very happy about it. I just hope the boys are good to go game 1. Am driving out to Vancouver from Toronto on Saturday (moving home), arrive Tuesday night. Will be amazing to be home for the whole finals.

Whatever team wins Friday hope they're awful beat up...and certainly the CBC crew pretty down on both team's goaltending

So obviously one of the Eastern teams are eventually having Breakfast in Canada, but if it can't be Wednesday will it be Tuesday or Thursday?

(did I just date myself again?)

It is. ... tricky part here is TD Gardens (Boston) is in use on the Saturday... St Pete Times in Tampa is pretty much open throughout.

CBC mentioned a Wednesday start twice. Not that they couldn't be wrong of course.

I've got tickets to game 1.

All my life I've dreamed of going to a SCF game. I remember '94 as a tot, I was in Vancouver up until game 6 and then returned to Vancouver Island to watch Game 7 on TV. It was heartbreaking. I remember going out back to our backyard with my cousin and setting fire to some hockey cards (Brian Leetch, Mark Messier, and Mike Richter) and to this day I have the entire 1990-91 Pro-Set hockey set with the exception of those three cards.

It's still hard to fathom this is happening and that I'll be seeing a real live SCF game with my own eyes. Wow.

Horton - Krejci - Lucic
Marchand - Bergeron - Seguin
Ryder - Peverly - Recchi
Paille - Kelly - Campbell

Compare that 2 the sharks.

Sharks have a better first line, 2nd line, third line.

Not to mention a great shutdown guy like Plekanec turned the Krejci line invisible in round 1.

Kesler, an even better player, should fare just as well.

Rogers Arena is booked on June 1st for Supertramp and on the 3rd for Bruno Mars, no idea why the media keeps saying Wednesday. Get your facts straight.

I have a feeling that there will probably be at least one or two two-day rests in this series as they switch between Games 1 and 2 and 3 and 4. Thursday, Saturday in Vancouver...two-day rest, Tuesday, Thursday in either Boston or Tampa Bay, then another two-day rest and Game 5 in Vancouver on Sunday the 12th after the UFC has packed up and left.

Both teams look pathetic...no intensity...hardly any forecheck...hardly any speed...they are playing with regular season intensity. Canucks will blitz whoever they play and probably win 3 of the first 4 games...the rest will be history
