Are the Senators and Ducks boring?
Wed, May 30, 2007

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final averaged 2,608,000 viewers on CBC, down from last year and less than the Toronto-Montreal regular-season finale.

In 2006, the first game of the final between Edmonton and Carolina averaged 3.033 million viewers. In 2004, Game 1 of Calgary-Tampa Bay averaged 3.063 million viewers.

Are the Senators and Ducks boring? Have your say in our forum.

Cup ratings take a dive

LOL Paul I agree. The one comment I think is hilarious is the one about the Sens being divers!! All I have to say is how many penalties do the Ducks have for diving, 2 so far and the Sens 0! So who really are the divers?

Hey Leaf fans, remember this line " Maybe Next Year!" Maple Laugh fans have been saying that for what 40 years now!

Sens are primadonnas? Crybabies? Leaf fans are funny. Still can't believe their eyes that an Ontario team is in the finals. Never seen it before. So if the Sens are what you say, why did they beat the Leafs so soundly over the past two years? And why did the Leafs always choke after beating them (and, as a reminder, never making it this far)? If you say someone sucks and they beat you/your team what does that say about you/your team?

As CBC's rating show, no one cares about Ottawa they are a bunch of cheapshot, diving, cry-babies. And no one wants to watch that in a championship series. Thank-god for the ducks, or CBC would have to show The Preakness pre-race reruns.

The sens are pre-madonnas, and that makes for VERY boring hockey.

Anything invloving the Ottawa Senators is a waste of time.

As boring as it comes. The Ducks play the trap, and the Sens do the," we lost our confidence dance".

Ottawa may win 1 game, but I wouldn't be surprised at a sweep, UNLESS Ottawa stats to try. I'm not talking about Emery, who has been very solid, despite giving up non stop rebounds.

Game 3 will make or break the Sens, and personally, from watching their play so far, they have given up.

Hey "Peter", in regards to your completely stupid assertion that "Nobody likes the Sens outside of Ottawa"... well, I live in Nova Scotia and I'm a major Sens' fan and have been since 1992. And I know plenty more. By your logic, I guess I can simply say that you have the IQ of a cabbage with no proof to back it up!

Boring??? What are most of you replying Americans? Maybe we should bring the coloured line to show you where the puck is!

Hockey is more then scoring goals, this is a great series with hitting, outstanding goaltending and playmaking. Being a Sens fan I wish they would play the way they did in the first 3 series, they have stopped crashing the net, shooting the puck (16 shots pitaful)and continue to hit and don't stop it throws off the Ducks.

The only players I think that have showed up so far for the Sens are Fisher, Volchenkov (2 unsung players so far in the playoffs) and Emery who has stepped up big.

I think the Sens now know how the Pens, Devils and Sabres felt when they played the Sens, the Ducks have taken it to them and they don't know what to do.

If the rest of the Sens show up to play it will be a incredible series that would be comparable to the Montreal / Quebec round 1 playoff back in 1993.

Keep the faith! It isn't over yet.

Sens and ducks are boring 1-3 goal a game teams. Say Buffalo and Detroit or someone made it it 5-8 goal games alot more exciting for the fans and actualy stay awake for a game not get so bored you fall asleep.

Absolutely totally boring cup final. Detroit and Buffalo score goals, and never let you go to sleep while the game is in progress.
Larry Tillotson, 2007-05-31 12:37:11

Boring?? the sens vs the devils was boring.. this series is awesome.. no trapping .. huge hits.. lots of emotion and animosity.

US non-hockey fans suck. Bring the predators to the Peg!!

Go watch bowling ya losers!
