The Stanley Cup playoffs leave nothing to the imagination. It is all right there in front of you. This season is no exception. Watching this extreme reality television on a nightly basis reaffirms what we already know: There is nothing like it. You know that feeling you get when you’re next to a new sheet of ice and you can’t tie your skates fast enough? That’s how we feel every night at this time of year as we wait for the games to begin.
There are more games tonight, and these nightly soap operas can change on one game. But here are some initial observations after the first week of the first round.
No. 1 Red Wings vs. No. 8 Flames
We are big Mike Babcock fans and he has his squad ready. Hands down, he would be my Canadian Olympic coach for 2010. His lines? Crosby-Heatley-Briere; Lecavalier-St. Louis-Getzlaf; Thornton-Marleau-Nash; Staal-Staal-Richards. Gold medal. Thanks for coming.
