The Oilers and Stars had some epic battles in the late 90's but the possibility of an Oilers/Flames matchup in the playoffs is delicious. And yeah - as soon as I posted last night I thought to myself "Crap - I forgot about McDavid". He's great. The fresh blood in the playoffs this season is going to be fun. Especially if the Flames and Oilers would go ahead and take out the Snarks and *ucks (my hate flows).
I'm like you - really thought Seattle was going to get a team. I still do. It seems like a natural market and with Vancouver across the pond, even more so. Which reminds - learn to hate Bettman. He makes Goodell appear lovable. We don't refer to him as Buttplug and/or the Evil Dwarf lightly.
I've heard Bettman is like a David Stern clone.
Seattle is still trying to get an arena pushed thru. The city has a bunch of idiots running it.
I guess my choice of teams is down to the Blackhawks & Edmonton (up & coming). I plan on watching a bunch of playoff games.
