you're not going to get many people to agree with you by saying americans care more about hockey than canadians

Quite to the contrary, as I have already stated that Americans care less. But even as a 2nd tier sport, the US still has more hockey teams and facilities at all levels because of population size, and the upside growth potential is greater than in Canada.

Maybe that's why Nascar is more popular than hockey in the U.S...they watch college/university hockey and think oh this must be what hockey is like everywhere! OHL & WHL & QMJHL are pretty intense leagues.. where most of the top draft picks come from.. barely any top players are drafted from colege/university

but like I said there are a few

I think that might have something to do with age. A lot of players are getting scouted very, very early and teams want to grab them when they are still young. More and more are getting in the NHL at 18 and that is when they would just be heading to university.

Dude you are getting trolled by an epic troll.

See, only a troll would cry about fighting being the reason hockey will never be popular in the States when Americans's appetite for hockey fights is pretty much insatiable.

OK, so who thinks Keith should get more than 3 games (or more than 5) for that elbow?

and who thinks that Sedin should get something for his earlier hit on Keith?

I'm a hawks fan so I want somewhat unbiased opinions.

If you are a Van. fan will you burn the city down if you are unhappy with the suspension? ;)

I think the Preds could be there. I'd like to see the Hawks there but it might be the Blues. I'd love to see the Canucks knocked out ASAP.

Don't want the Bruins to go far either.

Rangers could go far if Henrik plays well. Pens will be there but I'd love for the Sens to make a run.

Kings in 6 games

Blues in 5 games

Hawks in 6 games

Preds in 7 games

My picks are the same but I never bother picking the number of games. And I picked the Kings because I hate Vancouver. :)

Going up against the wrong goalie in a playoff series is always scary, and Jonathan Quick might be the wrong goalie. But I think the Canucks will escape the first round. The Kings have a lot of trouble scoring, and the Canucks are a hard team to score against.

I picked Ottawa more with my heart than my head.
