The Slice

If Seattle gets an NHL team

Here are five things hockey fans in the Northwest might say when the Stanley Cup playoffs roll around.

1. "I see the Emeralds missed the playoffs again." 

2. "The season is too long. The playoffs should conclude by May 10, the day Bobby Orr scored the goal." 

3. "Puck no, I'm not driving over there."

4."They ought to play at least one of the games on an Ice Ribbon."

5. "Well, Toronto hasn't won the cup since 1967, so perhaps we should be patient."
