    Fwiw, playoff hockey is all I'll watch.
    The NHL regular season is worse than the NBA.

    The playoffs is the best part of hockey. What is it that keeps you from enjoying it?

    Curious into the reason why as well. As a Canadian, I could never wrap my head around why Americans don't 'get' hockey. It's like wondering how anybody could not like bacon. Considering the speed, action, hits, team play, persaverence, and sheer toughness required of its players. The Stanley Cup is the oldest trophy in professional sports, and is said to be one of the toughest to win. Maybe the super-bowl, if it was best of seven with 4 rounds. It just amazes me to see a player get their teeth knocked out from a stick-in-the-mouth, and to come out the next shift, score a goal, and spit out a mouthful of blood. Or diving head-first in front of a chunk of rubber flying at 100mph during a penalty kill just to ensure the puck doesn't reach the net. Or playing nearly half a season with a broken finger as an effective member of the team. I can't think of another major team sport where a player would give so much determination for his team just to win the championship.

    NBA playoffs are awesome. I can't stand regular season basketball, but like most sports, the playoffs are a completely different beast.

    Hockey definately does not take long to learn compared to a game like football.

    I think a lot of people like and understand it much better if they see it in person. It's hard to get the intensity of the game through the boob toob. At least that's what I've been told.

    ^From what I'm seeing it's Fleury more than it's their fault.

    Yea and the guy sucked during the regular season..... go figure, right? And the Flyers, one of the best offensive teams can't buy a goal in the playoffs.
