it's kinda funny. when shanahan first came out with the videos and suspensions everybody was super pumped on him. now less than 8 months later everybody hates him.

I have minor quips with Shanahan now and then, but the real story IMO is that i don't think it's a good thing we hear about him so often. Basically, the NHL's EXTREMELY subjective (this has even been admitted to by Shanahan and co.) suspension rulings have had a hand in most of the seri (?) being played at the moment; something about that feels wrong.

Can't argue about the level of competition, or the parity really, but I'm personally just not sold on the parity idea.

I think it is a good way to develop a fanbase in markets where they didn't previously exist, like Nashville, but I think it sort of waters down the rest of the league in some ways. I think you would be a Pens fan no matter how well they were playing, and aren't you sick of hearing of people attributing your team's success to your 5 or so top 5 picks?

Idk, I think there is a certain excitement when people beat teams like the Wings or the Yanks, and parity erases that to some degree.

It seems the team to score first between the Pens and Flyers is doomed to lose in this series.

rhetoric is closer to a caps fan than typical leafs fan, tho

overall a good day of hockey. was hoping the caps would eliminate boston though...i'm really gunning for an la-philly finals, i think the richards/carter vs philly would be so sick to see.
