Compare that to the Oilers, the worst team in hockey, that gets about 180,000 viewers per game in a city that is so much smaller than Atlanta it is a joke lol. Something like 1 in 1000 people watch the Thrashers on television.
    I don't really know what to make of these numbers but I heard on local sports radio that CBC gets 3Million viewers every Canucks game.
    I remember it all too well

    What to make of those numbers is that Atlanta is a joke of a sports market and not just for hockey. CBC pulling in ridiculous numbers wouldn't surprise me at all. I would be very, very surprised if HNIC wasn't the highest rated show each week in Canada lol.

    Orcas are renowned for their ability to kill sharks and bears. So the Lightning may be their own rival.

    Too bad the Golden Seals aren't a team anymore. Would love to see the constant mock ups of the Canuck mascot eating theirs. Its too bad they had to name the Anaheim franchise after the Disney movies, not that the Mighty Ducks isn't an amazing team name. Anaheim Golden Seals would be titties. The Ducks dropping Mighty from their name might be the one name choice I hate more than the Tamp Bay Rays dropping the Devil from their name. Who wants to be a generic ray? Are they sting rays? Manta Rays? Rays of lights? Mathmatical straight lines?

    Btw, it being too hot to sleep is the worst.

    If they don't win the cup, giving up game 7 to them would mean nothing! Our sacrifice would be in vain. :P

    Good thing bruins ≠ polar bears then.

    If we're gonna go on mascots, the Lightning are going down. The thunderbug is no match for a bruin. Shark and a killer whale would be a good one though.

    As much as I wanted the wings to get the upset I am SO HAPPY we won't have to hear about how Dats is the best player in the league anymore.
    If actions speak louder than words
    I'll be the most deafening noise you've heard.
    I'll be that ringing in your ears
    That will stick around for years.

    I didn't say he wasn't, I just said I'm glad we don't have to hear the needless pontification.

    I'm not sure who to feel more sorry for...

    Marcello, for whom the hurt is fresh and still tender,

    or

    Garbles, for whom the hurt is deep, brooding, and everlasting.

    A true sports fan realizes that there are wins and losses, and they can't be the champions every year. Buck up ladies and enjoy the spectacle you're entertained with.

    "Are you not entertained?"

    ps. Ryan Kesler was just made a saint by the Vatican and they have added the 'book of Kesler' to the new new testament.

    One game at a time - Kesler 3:16

    i didn't get to comment on the game last night, because i was so pissed off at the end, but i can't say it wasn't exciting. Very good seriers by both teams. I'm sad to see this season end, but they sure went out swinging. On to the round. I'm seeing Van of SJ in 5 and Tampa of Boston in 6. gotta show love for yzerman :P

    It's called nation wide broadcasting. Do you guys get Leafs/Habs/Sens games prior to Canucks and Oilers games on CBC? We get them on the east coast all the time after the region based game has ended.

    And Red Wings fans shouldn't be butthurt by losing to San Jose, they played a great series and I honestly thought they had a good chance of beating the Sharks. That said, even if Detroit had won the series, they are way too battered to have beaten Vancouver and team health overall is important moving forward for potentially the next 14 games remaining in the post season. Detroit would probably have been swept by Vancouver because with the average age of their players, they were probably feeling it pretty bad the last few games and resilience is what got them to 7 games. Vancouver is well rested and even that will have an impact on their series against San Jose.

    No kidding, I swear TSN's analysts personally want to get down on their needs and suck his dick.

    Hey, there is always next season! =).

    Your team lost, just let it go and go drink beer with your friends. Make whatever excuse you want to help you sleep at night, but Detroit lost, just accept it and look forward to hockey next year.

    Yup, we get Leaf/Habs/Sens games on CBC, before our Nucks games out here in Vancouver. Really don't like the commentators at CBC though, especially Ron Maclean and his terrible reporting. Much rather listen to Tom Larscheid and John Shorthouse on Rogers Sportsnet.
