2008 NHL Playoffs are Boring, Let's Talk About Mark Messier
Wednesday, May 07, 2008
It's the eve of the semi-finals in the quest for the Stanley Cup. It started with 30 NHL teams and we're now left with four. Dallas, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. (Yawn...) Excuse me while I wipe the sleep from my eyes. Yet again a Canadian team will not win the Stanley Cup. Too many expansion teams if you ask me. The business of sport has had a dramatic impact on my passion for hockey.

Remember the good old days when the Edmonton Oilers won 5 Stanley Cups in 7 years? You'll never see that happen again. So as I needed my hockey fix because this year's installment of the playoffs tend to be boring, I was pointed in the direction of the NHL Network online. So what do I see when I get there? A story about the greatest (and my personal favorite) hockey player of all time Mark Messier. Don't believe me? Check out this video clip of Mark Messier, who won 5 Stanley Cups with the Oilers in seven years.

Mark Messier or Sidney Crosby? C'mon seriously? There is no comparison. We now return you to regular scheduled blog browsing.

    While agree that we need a Canadian team in the playoffs, I disagree with you about the whole Oilers thing.

    After all, what's more boring - not seeing a Canadian team in the playoffs or (assuming this was the 80's) seeing Edmonton in yet again? After all, they did have quite a streak. Therefore it was almost a given that if they made the playoffs, they'd go all the way.

    To me, knowing the outcome of something is worse than seeing teams that you don't know or like play. At least there could be some surprises in this playoff series (however unlikely).
