who's your NHL mvp??

I agree with Cox... looks like Brodeur and Sid the Kid will battle it out for top spot, with Vinny Lecavalier a close 3rd.
What do you think of Luongo's chances? I think that he has really helped Vancouver this year win some games.

I'd like to say it'll depend on how they do in the playoffs - but naturally, the votes are in before those begin. In that case, my vote would have to go to Sidney.

Crosby has MVP locked up this season.

Which 2 of these 5 teams do you think will make the playoffs?

NY Rangers
Carolina
Toronto
Montreal
NY Islanders

I think it's tough to call but I think the Rangers and Canes will grab the two spots.

Toronto and Montreal, Carolina will choke and fall out, the Rangers might overtake their spot, but Toronto's going to put up a good fight for the spot, Montreal's in if they play like their playoff hopes depend on these games.

It's going to be a tight race... you have to look at the strength of schedule.

Rangers have it pretty easy... they only face 1 team higher than them in the standings (Penguins), but they do play Montreal twice, Isles twice and the Leafs once.

The Canes have SJ, Tampa x2, and Atlanta... plus 1 vs. Toronto.

The Isles have it tough... Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Ottawa and NJD x2. Plus two games vs NYR and 1 vs. Toronto.

The Habs have Ottawa and Buffalo, plus 2 vs. the Rangers and 1 vs. Toronto.

The Leafs have it pretty tough as well... Buffalo twice, Atlanta and Pitt once each. Then, Carolina, Rangers, Isles and Habs once each.



Given their weak schedule and that Lundqvist is starting to really play well, I like NYR's chances. Of course, I hope the Leafs grab one of the last spots, but we'll see.

At the very least, it'll be quite entertaining considering that all of these teams somehow play each other in the remaining few weeks!!

I like it man. The interior is designed very nicely IMO. Though I don't have too many arenas to compare to, I think the viewpoints are good for almost the entire stadium.

Above all, the atmosphere is really good... Buffalo is a good sportstown and though the Leafs-Sabres rivalry can be overly heated sometimes, most Sabres fans are good sports and good for some back-and-forth bantering :)

I will definitely be planning ahead for a Sabres-Leafs game or two next season ;)

That may have been Fedoruk's last fight...WOW. Orr reminded me of Kocur with that KO.

Is it just me, or has there been an abundance of player being stretchered off in the NHL in recent weeks...

Also, nice vids of the "Aud's" final moments :wink:
