Vancouver in Four.

Yeah, I’m still alive. No blogging since Christmas. Sorry about that.

Anyway, I hope Vancouver beats Boston in 4 games.

It’s not that I like the Canucks– I don’t– and it’s not like I hate the Bruins– I don’t.

It’s that I think the NHL has setup the crappiest possible schedule for their fans to watch the game.

They stuck game 1 on the Wednesday after Memorial Day. Why would they do that, starting a series in the middle of the week? Why would they not put the first game on a holiday Monday when a heck of a lot of people are off work? Stupid.

So the schedule is as follows:

Wednesday, June 1 at Vancouver, 8 p.m.
Saturday, June 4 at Vancouver, 8 p.m.
Monday, June 6 at Boston, 8 p.m.
Wednesday, June 8 at Boston, 8 p.m.
*Friday, June 10 at Vancouver, 8 p.m.
*Monday, June 13 at Boston, 8 p.m.
*Wednesday, June 15 at Vancouver, 8 p.m.

How stupid, right?

If this series only goes 4 games, they only get one weekend game. ONE…!

If it goes the full 7, they get a total of two weekend games. TWO…!

So yeah, with the NHL setting such a lousy schedule for their fans, I hope this series is very short and has terrible ratings.

My hope is for a 4-game Vancouver sweep with all games completed in regulation, and all games completely one-sided in favor of the Canucks.

And that, from a Blackhawks fan. Pfft.

That is all.
