I'd think Vancouver would be better but I honestly don't know as I didn't really watch either this year.

Hey we should scout coaches. See anything you like out there?

Yes, you root for the team that looks more like Colorado and is young and inexperienced. Then hope we can grind and hit them on the birds and disrupt them. We were wanting Vancouver over Calgary in the 1st round. Nothing has changed.

Also we’d have “home ice” against Vancouver, which really only amounts to a last change advantage, but that seemed to matter a lot in the later games against Colorado.

Cheer for five OTs tonight because game one is Sunday.

I'm rooting for Vancouver because the Stars jave shown that, given three tries, they will eventually beat a third string goalie.

I prefer not to see Reaves for a whole series. What a beating he is.

We're in the middle of the Nucks-Knights game, Vancouver on pace for 6 SOG after regulation, Demko blocked the last 90 shots he faced.

Let's see if this Vancouver team can record a single shot on goal during this five minute major.

Whoever the winner is, we won't face him for game 1.

I'd like to meet Vancouver". Just to meet Antoine and to see Marchessault whining.

Well, we have Corey *fargin'* Perry, who will kneecap a goalie just ‘cause. So cool.

They’re a young team in over their heads. Their best players are all under 25.

On one hand, I think Johns coming back from concussion issues is more of a comeback story since hockey caused his absence. On the other hand, it would be very awkward to give the award to him now considering there's a very real chance his career is over.
