    The advantage goes to Rimouski of course, Crosby coming off an impressive 4 game performance against Zagrapan, Lascek, Boisclair, Desharnais,et al. to clinch the series against Chicoutimi but I think Jeremy Duschesne's play has been nothing less than stellar this post-season, he might pull off a Corey crawford on rimouski this year. Anyway, I anxiously await the outcome of this series, for all I know it could be lopsided in rimouski's favour.

    i think halifax is a more complete TEAM than rimouski, and was my pick to win the Q along with Moncton. A hot goalie can do a lot in a situation like this.

    It's going to be a very good series. Halifax could definately knock Rimouski out, but I hope not.

    Rimouski has far more firepower but I think Halifax has a much deeper squad, it'll be a good series, I live about an hour from Halifax so i'm hoping ot get in for a few games. I'll be rooting for the Mooseheads but if I had to put money on it i'd say The Oceanic take the series in 6 or 7.

    I've noticed that Sharrow has been playing well (points wise) for Halifax in the playoffs. Can anyone offer some further insight?

    He's been huge on the powerplay and has made a ton of good defensive moves. He's making strides this year. Big ones. I used to cry when he touched the puck but he's become smarter.

    Anyway, to anybody hoping to get tickets to the game, you aren't sitting in the lower bowl. Bobby Smith, the massive *********, has allowed season ticket holders who STILL haven't renewed for playoffs to purchase their packages for the finals and tickets don't go on sale to the rest of us peasants until Tuesday morning.

    Good ****ing luck. I'll see you in the last row of the lower bowl.

    How good is Halifax D? Has a whole and can anyone describe each one one by one. I know they have Picard, Sharrow, McCauley, Beaulieu, are they has good has they say or its just the team playing really defensive that make them so good defensivly?

    Whats the pairing and who is the best and worst of the team?

    Rimouski goalie hasnt been bad either. Except for the only lost in 2005, he have been pretty good against Chicoutimi, received a lot of shoots. His level of confidence must be very high right now and i dont expect him to failed now.

    Moncton is a good team and could win. Containing Crosby "could be" the key but the problem is, there's not a single team that know how to do it nights in nights out. Chicoutime hold him to nothing and won game 4, Crosby scores 4 goals the game after...

    I disagree here. I don't think Moncton has much of a chance to win, but hey, you never know.

    Moreso since they are eliminated. It's Halifax.

    excellent point! :shakehead

    Dont even know why i wrote Moncton. Anyways what i wrote was about Halifax.

    And i should have put the COULD in bold, my opinion is they wont win this one. But they have a more defensive team then the others Rimouski's challengers since the beginning of the playoffs and the serie "COULD" be different.

    Pairings are:

    Picard - MacDonald
    Sharrow - MacAuley
    Beaulieu - Brault/Lomanno

    Allowed the least amount of goals in the reg season. All are mobile, good with the puck and make good decisions. The Halifax forwards is what contributes to the great defensive play. A lot of good 2 way players on the team.

    I think that Rimouski will walk through Halifax and put the town on fire as long as The Moosehead players don't try to injure the big guns like Cabana did in the beginning of the season. I fear a dirty, physical series.

    Nielson speared Verge. RIM is the dirtier team.

    But I guess when you touch the meal ticket people take notice.

    An interesting angle to this series is that both teams had mid year coaching
    changes and both have had dramatically improved records since(nics more so
    than the moose).Labonte is an excellent strategist and a very expressive type
    of coach whereas MacAdam is more of a one on one player coach and is pretty
    quiet behind the bench.Although there are a number of factors for the Nics
    improved play I think MacAdam deserves alot of credit for the Mooses surge.

    Also:
    If the Nics can win the first 2 games at home then it will be tough for the Moose
    to get back in it because of the Crosby hometown factor.Some of the Halifax
    fans will have divided loyalties and if it looks like the Nic's are going to win anyways it wouldn't surprise me if he get's some fan support which could be fairly
    de-moralizing to the moose.

    Dont need to worry about the "Crosby Bunnies" as much because the season ticket holders have snapped up extra tickets and casual fans will be relegated to the upper upper bowl :)

    Thank god!

    Some season ticket holders will still cheer for Sid.

    And I think my point is valid that it may start to lean that way if the Nics win the first 2 and start out strong in the 3rd.

    If they do they are ******ed.

    We all LIKE Crosby, we are all PROUD of the kid but the playoffs are a war.

    The only reason they cheered him here last game was because he put on a clinic.

    The crowd might boo Crosby to put him off his game, but if the Nics win the series he'll get a standing ovation.
