I'd really like to see the Bruins or 'Hawks win the cup this year, I think it would be good for the sport.

Eo, what do you mean by "good for the sport?"

I think that what people generally think of as "good for the sport" is degrading it.

I just hope that the Sharks manage to make it to the conference finals so I can wear my Wings jersey to the Shark Tank and watch the Wings knock them out of the playoffs... AGAIN.

The Wings don't have a goalie. They won't make it past the 2nd round.

Love the Wings, but if they don't start playing like they're serious, they'll be out early.

I guess we all need a little of this, for good luck:

Chicago & Boston used to be really crazy for hockey, not so much nowadays. If either one of these teams won the cup it would put hockey back on the radar for a lot of people.

I guess the same could be said for the Rangers, but "f" the Rangers.

I just wish the NHL could of worked something out with ESPN, it was such a blow to the sport when Versus took over national broadcasting.

My friend, I completely disagree with this viewpoint.

ESPN can kiss my arse. I'm glad they don't have hockey on their evil scourge of a network.

A lot of people seem to equate "good for the sport" with "more people watching it on TV." I don't. Changing our beloved hockey to give it more appeal to the lumbering masses is the best way to destroy it.

Who cares if it is not as popular as basketball or American football? Those sports freaking bo-ring. Too much scoring in basketball and not enough action in American football.

Now as for the Rangers, I hate them as well. I was a semi-fond of this team until they acquired Sean Avery. This guy needs to be taken out back and shot. (not literally of course, but a good arse kicking is certainly in order)

Not sure about Boston, but things are MUCH different in Chicago since old man Wirtz died.

Blackhawks are the talk of the town since.

Chicago’s current number of 827,425 fans this season is through 38 regular-season contests at the United Center and does not include the 40,818 that attended NHL Winter Classic 2009 at Wrigley Field on Jan. 1. Overall, the Blackhawks, who lead the league with an average of 22,262 fans per home game this season, have drawn 39 capacity crowds in 39 home dates and 42 consecutive dating back to the end of last season.
