That time of year again. First time in my lifetime that there hasn't been a Canadian team in the playoffs. I believe the first time since the 69-70 season if I'm not mistaken. While I'm not holding my breath due to the way they slid into the playoffs, I'm, of course, rooting for the Red Wings and I also would not be disappointed in the least if the Blackhawks got knocked out early. I'm getting tired of hearing that stupid Chelsea Dagger song. If I had to pick a team from the West to root for, it would be the Preds.
