Obligatory Hockey Post

I didn't want the Vancouver/Chicago series to end, and I certainly didn't want it to end the way it did, with the sole Canadian team eliminated from the playoffs. This was my favorite series, and I can't imagine another match-up being nearly as fun to watch. I enjoyed the end-to-end action, and thought both teams were appropriately scrappy. Although I'm sorry to see Vancouver eliminated, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for Chicago (both the city, and their beleaguered Blackhawks). I'm looking forward to what they can accomplish in the next round.

I have to agree about Chicago. It's been a long time since they had a team worth cheering for so you feel good for them to advance in the playoffs.

It's also exciting to see how their new generation North American players, who completed their apprenticeship under the new rules, are progressing the game.
