    Kovalev insulting every kid who dreamed of playing in the NHL by not participating in the play and causing his team to lose after getting slashed. Redeemed by Sheldon Souray telling the press that that isn't what NHLers do in the playoffs.

    You obviously dont know how much it hurts when you're slashed during a game. It is soooo easy for Souray or anyone to say that you shouldnt stop playing after being slashed but I bet everyone would do that if it were to happen to them. Oh and Souray is also my favorite player so dont think that I'm saying that cuz I dont like him. One more thing, Souray is so stupid that instead of moving out of Kovalev's way he goes crashing into him which leads to the Boston goal.

    I voted Winnipeg leaving.

    As for "others":

    - This years Stanley Cup finals and how it was looked at as "Tampa Bay vs. Canada".

    - People calling Bertuzzi a "crimminal"

    - Game 7 of the 1994 finals

    - Youngblood (Nearly stabbed my eyes out after watching that POS)

    Sorry, I know exactly what it feels like. Ask Bob Baun or Bernie Geoffrion, who both played playoff games on broken legs, whether or not they think it's okay to give up on a play cause you have a boo-boo. Good thing Alexei wasn't on the '84 Oilers when he pulled that stunt, cause Messier may well have killed him in the dressing room. ;)

    Ya but Kovalev was MTL's best player in the playoffs and in round 1 of the entire playoffs he was also the best player along with Sakic and someone else. Oh and Im glad kovalev redeemed himself in the next game with 2 goals and 1 assists performance :) cuz u only had to be in MTL to know how much the fans were pissed at him.

    I agree - I miss the organs and have had enough with the cheesy Jock Jam music.

    Others:

    Changing the Smythe, Adams, Norris & Parick divisions to cheesy vanilla names like Central, Northwest, etc.

    These coporate arena names. I miss Northlands Coliseum and Olympic Saddledome, etc.

    What drove me over the edge, and lead me to drop my Bruins season tickets four years ago, was overexpansion. The NHL was a decent league until it grew to from 26 to 30 teams. This meant that nights when the Flyers came to town were replaced with nights watching Nashville and Atlanta. UUGGHHH!! I'd like to see a CBA resolution, but consider this: there are FOUR Division I college games to go see in Boston tonight. Hockey options abound everywhere, for fans as well as members of the NHLPA.
