Keep the NBA talk in the NBA thread! :mad:

Game 7 of the finals is tomorrow... :mmm:

Wait, hockey is still going on?

It. Never. Stops.

Sadly, it does stop.  After the finals, we then roll right into the NHL draft on June 21, then free agent frenzy on July 1.

But after July 1, there's nothing going on in the world of hockey till September, when rookie training camps start opening up.

Unless you play summer rec hockey like me, then it truly never stops. :cool:

Only month really off is August. Lots of activities & rumors swirl all of July.

If you were a francophone relying exclusively on Rťseau Des Sport (RDS) or TVA Sports for your sports, you would see for yourself that hockey never stops ;)   Even during a football game of F1 racing tournament, they'll find a way to squeeze some insignificant news about a Canadiens player..

TVA Sports is the worse with that. Watching Memorial cup final & they spent the 1st intermission talking about the Habs! The 2nd about the NHL playoffs.

FFS, analyze the current game!

I can't believe the St Louis Blues are about to win the Stanley Cup. Who saw that coming? First the Caps curse now this.

There may be hope for the Canadian teams yet...well except Ottawa.

If your team has to lose in the first round, let it at least be to the eventual Champs.  Good job Blues.

I feel obligated to point out that the Blues were supposed to move to Saskatoon in the early 80s.  :contract:

I went for the Anyone but Boston team. So go team from Missouri. Well done.

Oscar Sundqvist won his 3rd cup in 4 years. The Maple Leafs will trade for him.

Long-time Winnipeg Jets tough-guy Chris Thorburn also wins the cup.  Good for him - though I should note he only actually played in one game of the playoffs.  Is that enough to get your name on the cup?

*googles*

Yup - One game played is enough.

One game played is enough, but I wonder about long term injuries?  Do player unable to participate in any playoff games due to injury but remaining on support/staff duty to help with training have their name on the Cup and a ring too?

no buzz on this at all.  I had to google "Stanley Cup" to find out the game was played and won.

Congrats Blues *crickets*

It was a fun series. I guess the Raptors overwhelmed coverage of it in Canada.

Itís also hot outside, itís Summer.  The NHL season and playoffs is too long and unless youíre a super fan or if your team isnít in it... itís easy to get distracted.  It will never happen but 10 or 12 less games in the regular season would be a good thing.
