    We have what it takes to win this, but it will be no cakewalk for either team.

    My number 1 worry is the potential for poor officiating giving the Habs the unfair advantage.

    Bruins will face the same tilted ice I think.


    I thought games 3 or 4 in Ottawa were basically sold out before the Sens played the Bruins. Now unless most of the Sens season seat holders are actually Habs fans -- how could they fill the building.. UNLESS Sens fans sell them the tickets. Which would severely piss me off.

    BTW apparently tonight on the CBC panel for the playoffs.. Mr. Glenn Healey called Karlsson a one-trick pony. I hate that CBC is doing the Sens series... I really hate it. At least Healey is doing his beloved Leafs series.. and I hope they get their asses kicked really bad.

    IMO, there's no reason to get mad about Healey, it's one less 'expert' to listen to (lol). I personally stopped listening to that windbag when he first started. I bet there was at least one analyst who disagreed with him - and there's a reason for that as he's full of Dung.

    My point was that he didn't slip from .94x to .91x but that he had some games where he was pretty bad, and other games where he was brilliant. So inconsistent as opposed to a simple drop.

    Scalpers are not necessarily fans of one or the other. They go online and buy all they can so they can then sell it at a premium. Worst case (Washington) would have been to recover their initial investment and maybe make a small profit. But if it ended up Montreal or even Boston they could make a decent profit.

    Tickets were sold out before and during the Bruins game. As soon as that one ended, some new tickets were available at way higher prices...

    Yup, Senators are a joke in terms of their marketing.

    On Saturday night at the game, they put up the unbelievable stat where Mario Lemiux scored 5 goals in 5 different ways... but who did they say he did it against? The Rangers which is totally incorrect. What game did they show? Some game in 1993 vs the Rangers... It's embarassing.

    Good thing you love the team and not the marketing department.

    I just don't understand how things get through so many people and then presented to the public. If I gave my bosses garbage like that I would be fired.

    Because you don't let lousy marketing decide what team you cheer for?

    They probably work cheap which is all that matters to Big Gene. He can just keep telling us how knowledgeable we are and we'll forget what a low-rent operation he's running. Beer

    Pretty much, just embarassing sitting at the game when the gf goes "didn't he do that in the 80's" and she was only 1 when it happened.

    Couple of good ones from DGB:

    The view from Ottawa:
    They say that an underdog just needs to win one game in front of the other team's fans, which is great news for the Senators since they'll get seven tries.

    The view from Montreal:
    Have already printed up their "2013 Northeast Division Champs" ball caps, in case you were wondering what Carey Price would be wearing on the bench halfway through each game.
