So it's Ottawa/Pittsburgh in the conference finals. I wish the Penguins would bring back the uniforms with dark blue and light blue colors, I'm tired of seeing every Pittsburgh pro sports team in black and yellow uniforms, they all look like bumblebees.

And why doesn't Pittsburgh have an NBA team? Is pro basketball not a popular activity there? It seems to work in Philly, so why not Pittsburgh?
I do know what are the two causes that made the Caps become hexed and one has to do with something in the beginning of their creations and the other has to do with the way they supported erratically by this current US president, TBH, IMO.

Nashville/Anaheim in the conference finals also.

And why doesn't Cleveland have an NHL team? Is pro hockey not a popular activity there also? Well, it's only worked in Philly and Columbus, but not worked in Buffalo, so why not Cleveland?

I figured that Anaheim would win over Edmonton, it just isn't Edmonton's time yet, that team has a bright future they'll be back in contention next season.

Anaheim vs. Nashville, I want Nashville to win the series but I think Anaheim winning is more likely.

I'd like to see Anaheim bring back the uniforms they wore when they were called the Mighty Ducks. Their current uniforms look terrible, ugly color scheme and the logo on the front of their shirts is ugly too, it's supposed to resemble the letter D but it looks awful and whoever designed it is a lousy artist.

Pro hockey hasn't been successful in Cleveland, the last time they tried it was when the California Golden Seals relocated there in the late 1970's and became the Cleveland Barons. The Barons lasted only two seasons then the team folded and merged with the Minnesota North Stars. I would like to see pro hockey succeed in Cleveland, it sounds more like a major league city, Columbus sounds like a minor league location.

I wouldn't mind seeing Cleveland having a hockey team, a Cleveland-Columbus rivalry may do good as well.

But now with the Rangers out...I care less who wins the Stanley Cup this year...

I would like to see an NHL team in Cleveland and an NBA team in Cincinnati.

My team of preference to win the Stanley Cup this year is Nashville (another minor league sounding location ) but I think the chance of it happening is fairly slim.

As for the remaining NHL games, I'll support Ottawa over Pittsburgh , and Nashville over Anaheim, although I'm reserving the right to change my mind about that one.

Actually, I would like to see an NHL team in Cleveland and an NBA team in Pittsburgh, instead, IMO.

I'm sure the reason that Cleveland doesn't have a hockey team or Pittsburgh a basketball team is market size. Those cities aren't large enough for 4 leagues. (not counting soccer)

I am on an emotional roller coaster of major highs/lows.
The areas close to where I live are experiencing major flooding which the levels haven't been seen for over 100 years. So many homes lost/destroyed. We are getting way too much rain. Rivers overflow.

So I'm on a high with the Sens, but watching the news is so hearbreaking.
I've never experienced life getting in the way of me watching the Sens in the playoffs before.

I'd like to see an NBA team in Pittsburgh and also in Cincinnati. The Pittsburgh team could be called the Pittsburgh Pride, sounds like a good name to me. The Cincinnati team could be called the Stingers, that's the name the Cincinnati team of the old WHA had. They could bring back the name and give it to the Cincinnati NBA team. We already have the Charlotte Hornets, so why not the Cincinnati Stingers?

That's what I want-- for the Stanley Cup Finals to be Predators/Senators.

That may be the case...but Cleveland has two teams...The Cleveland Browns (Clowns) are an excuse, not a team!

And both the Pittsburgh and Cleveland Metropolitan areas are losing people...

Cleveland has a hockey team - the Cleveland Monsters - they even won the Calder last year (swept both final and conference series too - although not as good this season), they are the Blue Jackets AHL affiliate.

It should be the other way around. Cleveland should be the NHL team and Columbus the AHL. Cleveland Monsters is a dumb name, I can't believe they couldn't come up with a better team name than that. Cleveland Maulers sounds better than Cleveland Monsters.

Two names to look out for in the Anaheim/Nashville series: Ryan Getslapped and Pekker Rinne.
