Fo Shizzle ........ I've watched almost every game of both conference finals and haven't missed a Cup Game (a few via DVR).
If you like hockey but have a hard time getting into you need to watch the Finals, the level of play is just sick and the action is non-stop; add on the fact that the series are going 6 to 7 games, and it doesn’t get much better. My wife is even getting into it, and she only really likes going to Hockey games (she hates it on TV, much like she does for Baseball). Oh and by the way the NHL Playoffs have made the NBA finals look like a joke this year
I like a few of the key pieces that Philly has, but I really like the team dynamic and the attitude Chicago has. Add the fact that they’re a Midwest team and in a major championship funk ..... I’d say I’m on board with the Blackhawks as well. I should also note that I was a big Blackhawks fan growing up; big fan of JR, Belfour, and Chelios fan, even got a jersey one Christmas (I think I still have it somewhere). But once they all went their separate ways I kind of jumped on the Dallas Stars bandwagon when they moved from Minneapolis. I haven’t really had a team in about 10 yrs; but now with the reassurance of the Blackhawks I may jump on that wagon again ...... really all I like to see is good hockey and that’s what we’ve got in the NHL this year ........ now if they could just get off Versus that would great.
