Shame that Garry Galley won't be sticking around, he was sounding pretty good this time around

These are pretty good matchups.

Habs-Flyers should be a good tilt, and I think everyone was waiting for Detroit-Colorado.

Senile old fart Blab Cole to screw up the names.

Fortunately the mistake-filled duo of Mark Lee and Craig Simpson did not make the second round cut.

I actually like Bob Cole, quirks and all, if only because he concentrates on the action in game and doesn't just focus on the top three players of each team, a minor compliment, but important when you compare to what you get from the guys that do the TSN and NBC games.

If mankind ever succeeds in making a time travel machine, put bringing back Dick Irvin at the top of the list please. =)
