The two day wait for the beginning of the Stanley Cup playoffs has created a media explosion of features and coverage.
Here in Canada CBC, TSN, Sportsnet and NHL Network have combined for countless hours of coverage. You can bet every newspaper has added pages of content. No other sport is being discussed on sports radio. And of course here online, the mainstream media and the bloggers have gone all out.
I just wanted to point your way in the direction of the Stanley Cup Playoffs 2008 official website - oddly enough http://stanleycupplayoffs2008.com/
It is put out by the NHL and contains some great statistical previews of each round, and some invaluable resources for the savvy poolie. Team playoff guide books and Total Stanley Cup are available in their entirety for download in pdf format. And of course more storylines and featured players than you can possibly keep track of!
