So how come none of you Canadians are talkin' about the Stanley Cup Playoffs? The reason I'm not is simple -- my Penguins bowed out ignominiously in the first round so there was nothing left to say.

I'm watching baseball instead. The Toronto Maple Leafs and their incompetence from the top down have destroyed my love of hockey. I haven't watched a full NHL hockey game in close to 5 years now.

Since there aren't any Canadian's left in the race I've lost interest. I'm still watching but usually fall asleep after the 2nd.

now here is a controversy. The US knows no boundries. They lure all the great players away from canada with money and then steal our cup using our players.

I see it as simple supply and demand at work, regardless of geography or industry for that matter. It's just amplified a bit in the NHL as there really are very few "jobs" for players, albeit generally very well paying ones.

Locally, there's been a similar story in the news of late about dermatologists graduating from school here and immediately moving to other regions, where the money is. Who can really blame them?

Moving and being coerced ,entirely different. Canada cranks out more top hockey players. Please correct me if im wrong.

they should be paid by the position they play, bonus' for goals scored and assists. Same way everyone else that works .
