While we west fans all are hyped about our teams chances, it cant be forgotten what a great season it has been for us as fans. All 4 teams battled from start to finish, and all us fans were tuning in every week to every game, knowing how it could effect the standings. I feel sorry for those in the east who knew the playoff seating relatively early or felt disheartened thinking that if their squad was only good enough to win 6 games it might get them in. At least those in Montreal and Winnipeg have had their anxieties increased now that Winnipeg is playing better.
All in all, its been a memorable year as a fan in western Canada. As good a year as any I can remember. A big thank you goes out to all 4 teams for making it so special.
