    so far the Hawks/Blues has been the best series. If the Hawks beat the Blues then is it a straight shot to the Stanley Cup finals and be the Stanley Cup Champions again

    Not going to get backlash from me lol. All hockey all the time where i am.

    There is nothing else like it. So fast and so intense. Guys play only a minute or so at a time so they go all out. You have to see it live to get a real appreciation.

    Shame the nhl has been so poorly run over the years. It is a testament to how good hockey is that the nhl has managed to stick around despite such poor management.

    Bettman needs to go. He's the most hated commissioner in all of sports, and has been responsible for 3 lockouts.....

    Bettman did suck so much of tradition out. Are you old enough to remember when the conferences and divisions were named after people? That was so cool but bettman changed it.

    At least he kept the stanley cup and individual awards the same. A traditional trophy named after someone that sits in the hof with each winners name on it. Now that is class.

    The only reason I will ever respect him is because he brought hockey to Nashville instead of expanding into an already solidified hockey market (another reason why all of Canada hates him).

    It makes for a fun moment when he presents the Cup though.....

    What do you guys think of the playoff format?

    Against it at first but starting to warm up to it, think it can create/rekindle some rivalries with the division playoff match ups every year.
