    I just missed this one (guy #17) but I will send a box to whoever has the team that eliminates the Canucks from the playoffs. I hate them with every fiber of my being and would like to reward a hopefully early exit.

    Flyers season ticket holder since '77.
    My basement/Man Cave is painted orange, and the d├ęcor that isn't beer related is Flyers related.
    For the record, it inserted that little accent mark ^ automatically.

    That's nice you got a team from the west (and a good one at that), so you can cheer for the Caps too (come on, I'm feeling a little outnumbered here.)

    I have to cheer for the Habs. A decent team I feel like, but I don't trust Price's goaltending. I'm just glad I didn't get the Rangers and have to cheer against Caps yet.

    Although not Likely but if it came to Blackhawks VS Caps. I'm pulling Blackhawks. After getting boned in the march madness survivor Bif I'm looking to make it up on this one. Maybe some of my explosive Bif karma will come back to me.

    Definitely not because you got them. In fact, if I got the Canucks, I'd forward any box I received to someone else. I really can't put into words how much I hate them.

    Not only did they get beat, they got beat up. Lot of guys on both teams are pretty sore today.
    What a great physical hockey game!

    Probably the same place of everyone else. You know when people root for Boston over your team, your team is filled with assholes.

    I get that part, totally understand hating the Rangers, Penguins, even the Flyers.
    But the Canucks?? Isn't that like hating vanilla? What did the Canucks ever do to anybody?

    Like I said....when your team is filled with assholes, it is easy to hate. You can put the rest together about the Canucks then, unless you need specific examples, which there are many.

    The Canucks are the worst, definitely my most hated team, coming from a Wild fan. Tough loss for the wild last night by the by...

    Hell of a game from Harding. It's a shame they couldn't get another one past Crawford early, cause once Chicago came out in the 2nd they really took the game to Minn. Great game to watch.

    Pretty much what Duffman said. It's a team of guys who play dirty, underperforming primadonnas, and led by a coach who is a crybaby. Oh, and their "fans" trash their lovely city when they lose.

    I had forgotten about the whole riot thing.
    These days it's not a true championship unless some cars get flipped and some fires get set. Idiots.

    Harding played outstanding, I wouldn't mind seeing him get the nod in game two, even if Backs is healthy. I'm stoked to see game 2, and especially game 3 in front of the home crowd!

    A little over six hours until the Sens-Habs game.
    Hey Angus, any interest in a side wager on the series?

    Nothing major, a bottle or two of some decent locals?
    Ottowa is the underdog, but I think they've got a good chance and I'm willing to put up say a bomber or two on it.

    2 bombers,sounds good. You're on brother.

    Like i said, i've never liked Carey Price. If he wasn't in goal, i'd feel better about my chances. But we'll see, hopefully he can step up his game.

    Either way i think this should be a good series.
