Playoffs? Playoffs?? Playoffs!!!

The best time of the year is upon us. It's the playoffs. And if you have to ask, "Playoffs for what??" You're not Canadian. Nor have you ever been within 500 miles of Canada.

On a quiet night, you can go outside and hear the snow melt it's so peaceful. Until the overtime goal is scored. And then it's mayhem. Seriously. I can stand outside my house in Calgary and hear when the Leafs score in Toronto. Granted, the prairie provinces don't have anything geographically to stop the soundwaves, but still.

So to celebrate the Drive for 25* I'd thought to show off a few recent additions to my collection.
What you're looking at here, is either a Stanley Cup parade, or a first round exit. In a team game, it's all on this guy. Good thing he has broad shoulders. Cowboy up Carey.
Leading scorer and potential Norris trophy winner, PK Subban. He was one point from leading the team in scoring... had to settle for leading all NHL defencemen. Not bad after missing the first 8 games in a 48 game season.
Montreal doesn't start until thursday due to Bettman doing whatever american tv tells him to do. Idiot.
The first two games of the playoffs last night both went into overtime. Yeah. It's going to be like that.
I'll be interested to see what reasons are said that Subban doesn't win the Norris. He was by far the best defencman in the league hands down. But he's not well liked. We all know trophies are not always won by the deserved. But Ryan Suter???? Really???
Just for fun, Frenchie LaBouche. Well, Lars Eller. That's what he's referred to around here. If he really did have a french sounding name, he'd be the Habs first line center. But he doesn't. So he's not. And the team suffers for it.
Thanks for looking.

Is your team in it? And who do you think can stop the Habs Drive for 25?

*The Canadiens are going for their 25th Stanley Cup Championship. That's right. 25th. How many you got?
