    Canucks in 6 Shaun!

    Yep 8th, Bring on Detroit, we'll do em in 6, and you're gonna eat your words. Toughness won't be a problem, not in the playoffs, the only problem will be staying out of the box, cause all the Wings do is clutch and grab, I'd loose patience with that crap too! Why are you a Leaf fan, if you lived here? Just curious did you happen to know a Glen or Clint S. over there? Anyway what a awesome series this is gonna be, I hope Handibob's ready to go down in 6. I'll be watching the Leaf-Islander series too, my hubby's from T.O. and a die-hard Leaf fan too. Hey Emi, Sorry about your Oil, I really wanted them to get in, they're my 2nd team, next year! PS. Yeah I know what ya mean, not alot of hockey fans aye, Hockey Rules!

    I sure hope the Canucks beat those Detroit "Deadthings" but it might take 7 games, should be a good series though. Sorry to say but the Leafs will take the cup. Blue & White forever !!!

    Hey Shaun!

    Here's the "History Of the Octopus"

    The octopus first made it's appearance on April 15, 1952, during the Red Wings' Stanley Cup playoff run.

    Two Detroit brothers, Pete and Jerry Cusimano, who owned a fishmongers in the Eastern Market, threw one on the ice at Olympia Stadium. Each tentacle of the octopus was symbolic of a win in the playoffs. Back then, the NHL consisted of just the origional six teams, and eight wins (two best-of-seven series) were needed to win the Stanley Cup. The Red Wings swept the series that year, and the Octopus has come to be the good luck charm ever since.

    The tradition carried over to Joe Louis Arena on opening night in 1979 when several of the cepholopods found their way onto the ice.

    During the 1995 playoffs, Bob Dubisky and Larry Shotwell, co-workers at a meat and seafood retail company near Detroit, tossed a 38-pound octopus onto the ice during the National Anthem prior to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. The year after, the duo struck again with a 50-pounder in the Conference Finals. Although the feat received no air time on the nationally broadcast game, the octopus was proudly displayed on the hood of the Zamboni between periods.

    OH, and who's gonna have us crying "that hurt," "Pull the jersey over your head then "Turtle Domi" I don't think so!!

    Groovy thanks Monkeygirl

    ''Turtle Domi'' OH NO! You didnt just say that,one incident and if you remember correctly big dumb Jim Mckenzie took a majour and a game misconduct for that move,smart thinkin on Domi's part

    Domi's only one part of your problem,how about Cross,Belak,Berg,Mcabe and Corson,Roberts will you get the picture no team in the NHL can take the physical game away from the LEAFS certainly not the Canucks
