I could not be more pleased with the Eastern Conference semi-finals. I think Boston is going to demolish Carolina (in a highly-enjoyable-for-Katebits kind-of-way), and no matter what happens with Pittsburgh/Washington, that’s going to be a crazy scene. I’m totally in the mood to embrace the NHL’s MOST-IMPORTANT-MATCH-UP-IN-THE-HISTORY-OF-HOCKEY hype machine. Bring it. (Also, go Sid!)
I’m less enthused about the West only because I’m sad that my two favorite WC teams are playing each other already. I want George Parros AND Pavel Datsyuk to be happy. How will I ever choose?
