Do you really expect the NHL to actually apply its own rules when one of their poster boys is due for suspension? Please. I may be in the minority here but if I choose to start a fight, it isn't so I can exchange pleasantries. It's so I can injure the other person and, in doing so, send a message that he'd best not hassle me.

Very few fights are so you can injure the other person. Send a message? Yes. But by injury? No.

Malkin, in this case, should've received TWO misconducts, not one (instigator and not tying down his jersey) which is an automatic one game suspension.

So I assume you felt Zetterberg needed a matching misconduct? Don't forget an unsportsmanlike conduct on Malkin, too. You can nitpick every rule violation that occurrs, but they are never called for a reason.

Like Gretz used to say, 90% of this game is half mental. If Malkin's dumb enough to pull that stunt and fall under the letter of the law, sit his ass for a game and do what the rule was designed to do. If not, why even have the rule? To their credit, the wings are saying all the right things--no big deal, he's frustrated, blah blah.

In my personal opinion they shouldn't. It's one of the many things they did post-lockout to castrate the NHL

The officiating had me confused in game 2 mailkins is called for a weak assed interfrence right after a wingie goal then lets a stick braking slash by hossa slide on the PP ( wingies score) 2 seconds later? then i watch numerous penalties just simply ( let go ) the entire rest of the game (on both sides) but pitt got the short end of the stick i will say that much.

actually the instigator is the only one that calls for a suspension, the tie down is a game misconduct, which would be the rest of last nights game, so he probally got that.

47.22 Fines and Suspensions – Instigator in Final Five Minutes of Regulation Time (or Anytime in Overtime) - A player or goalkeeper who is deemed to be the instigator of an altercation in the final five (5) minutes of regulation time or at anytime in overtime, shall automatically be suspended for one game.

47.13 Jerseys -A player or goalkeeper who engages in a fightand whose jersey is not properly “tied-down” (jersey properly fastened to pants), and who loses his jersey (completely off his torso) in that altercation, shall receive a game misconduct penalty.

The play-offs have always been more rough and rugged. Everyone takes it up a notch and the calls are fewer and further between. Let the players play and don't decide a game on some ticky tack penalty. Detroit was a finese team for years that despite winning the President's trophy would get muscled out of the play-offs and lead to our frustration. Finally when we brought the hammer to the table in 97 we started winning Cups.

Solid idea.

I like the Broncos because the first football game I ever saw was Super Bowl XXXIII against the Falcons, I actually went into the game cheering for Morten Andersen because he is Danish, but Elway completely won me over, he had a presence, you could just tell how much he wanted that win.

Eh....I'm not really happy by this win. It's still 2-1 Detroit when it should be 2-1 Pittsburgh, so I don't really care that we won this game, because it doesn't do anything to reverse what happened earlier.

The only thing that lifts my spirits about the Pens still having a chance to win to the series is this:

As Babcock said, the series is right where it ought to be. If the Wings wanna play 40 minutes of hockey, they will get beat, simple as that. What a shock that the Pens played with 6 guys on the ice for nearly 30 seconds and nobody in stripes caught it. Ah well, this game result is not a shock. Back to the drawing board and come out fighting again in game 4. Nice win for the Pens.

His energy seems good but he's pressing, trying to make a pretty play instead of getting to the net and putting pucks on Fleury. Lidstrom's due for one of his patented center ice goals as well!

I was just thinking that yesterday, we haven't had one of those centerice knuckle balls from Lidstrom.

I noticed yesterday that Lidstrom isn't shooting from the point, he seems to take the pass more than he maybe should in some situations. I love his slapshot he has great accuracy and if we can establish the screen his shot is a weapon.

I hope Datsyuk comes back, having him would put another weapon out there for the Penguins to worry about, he could really create some mismatches. I just want to see him get a breakaway and completely humiliate Fleury, you could tell a couple of times late in the Anaheim series he would just take the puck and run around people, we need that magic back.

Smiling Assassin27
06-03-2009, 01:24 PM
Have a seat, Mr. Leino. I think if Dats centers Hossa and Flip, they could have a big night.

Datsyuk looks like he's returning
UPDATE: Babcock just said that Datsyuk is a game-time decision. "We have an optional skate tomorrow morning and we'll see how he responds after that and after today. I have to talk to (trainer) Piet (Van Zant) and see how (Datsyuk) looks." Datsyuk also said that he would be a game-time decision tomorrow.

That said, Datsyuk was practicing hard today, doing drills for the first time in a long time. The practice lines were shuffled as though they were preparing for Pavel being back. It sure looks like Datsyuk will be back unless his body takes a step backwards after today's workout.

Also, Babcock just confirmed that Draper is back in the lineup, but said that he doesn't know who's out. Well, it sure looks like Abdelkader is out. Leino and Maltby were Draper's wings in practice. Draper, Maltby and Leino were off the ice for a half-hour while Abdelkader worked out.

----

Pavel Datsyuk is practicing right now as though he's going to play in tomorrow's Game 4. First, he's working through all the drills and looking good. Until this point, Datsyuk (foot) was just skating on his own, not doing drills.

Also, Datsyuk is centering a line at practice with Valtteri Filppula on one wing and Marian Hossa on the other. There is no reason to shuffle the lines like that unless the Wings believe that Datsyuk will likely be available.

So that said, here were the practice lines ...

Franzen-Zetterberg-Cleary
Filppula-Datsyuk-Hossa
Hudler-Helm-Samuelsson
Leino-Draper-Maltby

Lidstrom-Chelios
Kronwall-Stuart
Ericsson-Lebda

No Rafalski and no Holmstrom at practice. Obviously, the team is looking at Rafalski as playing in Game 4 and using Chelios as a placeholder. Holmstrom, it's tough to tell if he'll be playing from the practice lines. Homer took a big hit from Cooke seven minutes into Game 3.

Also of note is that Draper was centering the fourth line at practice, not Abdelkader. Draper might make his return after being a healthy scratch the past two games.

statistics show the penguins getting 25 more power plays than the second place team in that category up through the second round. 25 is a LOT more power plays. Certainly, looking at that figure, it appears as though the people claiming an officiating advantage for the pens aren't just seeing the pens appearing to be up a man more then the opponant because they want to find fault with the Pens or "homer tinted glasses".

So, considering that there ACTUALLY is a disparity between what gets called for the pens and what gets called for other teams (in terms of pure numbers at least), how would you explain that without league bias?

Props to the pens, who ran through us, ran past us, and ran over us in their building. I've watched Red Wings fans metaphorically hang themselves by a shower rod this morning, proclaiming the Wings are toast. I don't think so, but the Pens have the upper hand because their energy level dwarfs that of the Red Wings. Mental mistakes come from physical exertion, and the Wings flat out handed the puck to the Pens in the 2nd period, practically escorting them in on breakaway after breakaway.

2-2 going to Detroit, I still like our chances, but also think the Pens are sensing the kill and will come out flying in game 5.

I have seen Crosby poach a lot in this series. Whenever the Wings gain the puck in their own zone and turn the play the other way he hangs out at the Red Wings blue line long after the puck is into the Penguins zone - some times it pays off and the Pens get the puck back and can start a quick counter attack with a long pass, but when the Wings set up it looks really bad.

Datsyuk is back, he has an ability to make every other hockey player in the world look like a total fool out there, including putting the moves on Crosby.

Eh...both Game 1 and 2, Pittsburgh played well and IMO deserved a split in Detroit in those games.

I do think, however, that its no more likely than 35% that we'll be able to go into Detroit and win in Game 7. That will be very, very, very difficult to do and is highly unlikely. I'd be so happy if we could do it, but its really hard. This isn't like the Washington experience, that team had very little playoff experience and none in Game 7s. Detroit has tons of experience.

I'm hoping for it, but not expecting it.

I have a feeling that game 7 is either going to be a blowout of epic proportions or it's going to be a game for the ages. I think the key will be who gets on the board first. If the Pens score first it gives them confidence and turns it into a dogfight. If the Wings score first there is a chance that the Pens press more and make more mistakes. One thing is for sure this years Pens team is more mentally tough than the team that was in the playoffs last year.

I would also love to see the look on Hossas face if the Pens win the cup.

Man, Hossa has been so god awful that watching him watch the Pens skate the cup is not altogether repulsive to me. He's been a major disappointment.

The Pens flat out took our lunch money last night. The Wings have been guilty of playing 20 minute and 40 minute games all year long, and they played like they knew they had another shot, while the Pens played like they did not. Pens are fresher and hungrier, so I give them the upper hand for Friday.

He hasn't been as bad as Hudler who has been a complete non-factor. He keeps holding onto the puck on the boards until Hal Gill runs him over and takes the puck away.

I guess right now the Conn Smythe race is down to: Malkin (if the Penguins win), Osgood and Zetterberg (if Detroit wins). If the Penguins win the cup Malkin will be the MVP, he has been by far the most dangerous Pen in the final and with the scoring title well in hand it will be a no-brainer. If Detroit wins it will depend how the final game goes, Osgood will take it if Pittsburgh only scores 1 goal and it is a close game, Zetterberg will take it if Detroit wins by several goals or if both teams score a lot of goals.

I was less optimistic about game 6. I thought after the Pens laid an egg in game 5 they would just pack it in. I have a feeling that they will come out confident and make a game of it. If they have the same energy from game 6 they are the better team in the series. Hopefully it will be easy for them to play like it's the last game of the year...because it is :)

Mario saved the team, had to finally force the city to build him a new arena by talking to Kansas City about a move and then only got the new arena becuase it got tied in with a casino.

Per TSN:

"DETROIT - The Red Wings can accept that Pittsburgh is the Stanley Cup champion. Getting snubbed by Sidney Crosby is another matter.

After watching Pittsburgh hoist the Cup on Detroit's ice, the Red Wings lined up to shake hands with the Penguins as is custom in the NHL playoffs.

Detroit captain Nicklas Lidstrom was up front, followed by alternate captain Kris Draper, congratulating many of the new champions while waiting for Pittsburgh's captain.

"Nick was waiting and waiting, and Crosby didn't come over to shake his hand," Draper told an Associated Press reporter a couple hours later as he was leaving Joe Louis Arena. "That's ridiculous, especially as their captain, and make sure you write that I said that!"

It can also be written that Pittsburgh didn't need Crosby to finish off the Red Wings, beating them 2-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals without the superstar healthy enough to play for the whole game."

PITTSBURGH -- County Executive Dan Onorato and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl declared Pittsburgh the "City of Champions" on Saturday, following the Penguins' Stanley Cup win on Friday night.

They also announced that a parade to honor the Penguins will be held on Monday, June 15 at noon.

The parade will start at the intersection of Grant Street and Seventh Avenue.

"No words can describe the history-making comeback achieved by our team, Ravenstahl said. "No one believed that this could be done, that we could win on the road and defy history, and that the league's youngest captain could make it happen. On Monday, let's show the world how the 'City of Champions' welcomes home their Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins."

"Monday's parade will be a great opportunity for this region to honor and celebrate this amazing Penguins team for bringing the Stanley Cup back home," Onorato said.

Your original statement was: Sometimes facts get in the way of rational thought cause you hate somebody cause hes good.

My point was that your statement holds true for you as well....your hate of the Wings gets in the way of rational thought at times.

Congrats to the penguins fans, deserve it after doing the impossible being down 2-0 and then 3-2.

Once again the team I picked to win the cup, chokes....typical. Also glad Malkin got MVP, he's better than cindy crosby.

That would be cool. On the positive side for you, that would mean the Kings would get to the Final.

They'd end up losing to the Pens though and Hossa would be about as effective on the ice as Bob's Mom.

Again.

Mega-props to the Pens who accomplished the toughest feat in sports--winning the Stanley Cup. Congratulations to their fans as well. The better team won, no matter what some shell shocked Wings fans say about conspiracies, refs, injuries, blah blah blah.

Time to reload in Detroit, cut some dead wood (are you listening Hossa, Chelios, Lebda, and uh, Hossa?), lock up some more core players, and take another run at this thing next season. Let's do it again, Pens fans--same time, same stakes. Enjoy the Cup.

Robbed? It was 115 1st place votes out of 133 and 1264 to 787. Malkin wasn't even 1st on the other 18 ballots (he had 12 of them). It wasn't that close.

That the reporters voted that way doesn't make any less of a robbery. He was, IMO, the best player this season and that was confirmed again in the post season (I know, I know....postseason doesn't count for the Hart).

With only 3 100-point scorers in the league, it didn't help that the other one was on Malkin's team. He probably wins if Crosby is 20-25 pts back, and not 10. 21 more goals and nearly as many 3rd period goals as Malkin had total, helped out a lot too.

Hey 24,

Eklund reported that we are really interested in JMFJ. But I guess he is seeking huge money which we don't have and can't give.

Even though its Eklund, I don't discount that we are interested given that we're prolly going to lose Scuderi and Gill and also because JMFJ is great friends with Sid. Still, I'm not sure if I want his Dad hanging around.
