Apparently Devils GM Lou Lamoriello grabbed a jar of jelly from the postgame food spread in the Devils locker room last night after the game and hucked it against the wall. He then went on a tirade directed at the Devils coaching staff.

Awesome, but probably too late.

god i hope we get the refs that have been doing the buffalo boston series instead of the one weve been getting so far or we dont have a chance, there is something wrong with a league when one series can have 50 power plays and another 18, are jersey and philly that dirty ? im sick of watching games where each team has 2 power plays in the first 10 minutes, thats penguins hockey, and i dont like it, let the friggin players play.

Avs looked worn down, beat up, and in full out surrender mode last night. They've gone further than most people ever expected, but I just hope they can go out with a better effort in game 6. Several players need to step up on offense if that can happen, though.

Once we took the lead SJ seemed to kick it into another gear we just don't have right now. Got doubled in shots (or worse) almost every game by a more veteran/talented team. Not a bad showing, though, given where we began this offseason. Look forward to next year.

Until then, go Blackhawks the rest of the way I guess.

Gauging how good this season was for the Avs I remember going into our opening game this season (ironically against San Jose), with it being Joe Sakic night, thinking "god, I really hope they just don't get embarrassed this one night that we honor the best player in franchise history. We can suck for all the rest, but please not this one."

I mean, I seriously worried they'd get run out of the building by a star studded team given how terrible they were last year, how many veterans they lost, and how inexperienced so many starters were. Instead, they kicked the Sharks' ass that night and started out as the hottest team in the league for over a month.

Just a fun, unexpected season. Need a couple more pieces, but with Anderson and the young guns they have a hell of a core to build on now.

I don't feel bad. I saw this ending coming a mile away as soon as our Goalie Quick started ****ing the bed. Quick hasn't been the same since March, and I don't believe he performs well in pressure situations. Probably the most unclutch goalie in the NHL.

We'll be better next year. Pick up Kovie and start Bernier next season. Probably need another Dman to boot.

Jaroslav Halak does his best Tim Tebow impersonation and the Habs beat the Caps, 4-1, despite being absolutely and completelyy outplayed the entire game. 53 saves!

Game 7 on Wednesday. I'd love to see Halak do it again....but the reality is that Washington will probably blow them out in Game 7.

Yeah. As hard as he tried, he just completely clashed with our system. We're a dump and chase team, whereas Kovalchuk is used to an aggressive system that a guy like himself or Ovechkin could thrive in. Can't knock the effort he put in, but he just isn't right for us.

I hope we take some the money that we would be throwing at Kovalchuk and put it towards a warrior like Volchenkov. God knows we need some toughness on the back end after seeing the Flyers forecheck smash us into dust.

Baba Booey
04-26-2010, 07:51 PM
By the way, now that Lemaire has retired I'm praying to GOD we hire a young guy like Mike Haviland (assistant for the Hawks) or Guy Boucher (Hamilton Bulldogs coach - AHL Coach of the year) that can bring a new aggressive nature to our team. We have some serious skill on our team and some offensively capable defensemen like Martin (providing he resigns) and Greene, including some exciting young talent like Tedenby, Josefson, and Eckford coming through juniors and the minors.

I'm so ****ing tired of playing passive hockey in the playoffs. We've only won two series since '03 when we won the whole damn thing. It's a crying shame (for obviously much more than hockey reasons) that Pat Burns had to get sick, because I'm 99% sure he'd still be our coach.

Yeah, you never know. That's why I want the coaching situation to be resolved as soon as possible, so negotiations can begin with not only Kovalchuk, but with Martin and Clarkson as well. If we promote a guy like Mario Tremblay to head coach, though, you can forget Kovalchuk resigning with us because we'll be playing the same style as last year.

Sutter played a great system during the two regular seasons he was here - we forechecked with two forwards and the defensemen were free to jump in the play. Then, in the playoffs, he starts line matching and playing Jay butt-****ing Pandolfo 20 minutes a night.

3-0-1.

Well if the Wings can play a few more games like they played in game 7 the Sharks might as well start booking tee-times, I don't know if any team in the league can stand up to them when they play like that but I do know the Sharks can't.

Not since the olympics have I seen a team get dismantled like that, the Coyotes were outclassed by every Wings line, they were outworked and outshot and often ended up looking like they were killing off penalties when they were 5 on 5.

Congrats to the Canadians, you outworked, outcoached, and outplayed the Caps. Halak was awesome in Games 1, 5, 6, and 7.

As a Caps fan, that's typical Caps playoff hockey, they're out earlier than a team of your talent level should be. I'd love to say I'm shocked, but I expected this.

Bruce Boudreau, learn to ****ing coach in the playoffs. Your team had the best PP in the league, and your team scored 1 single time in that series. It wasn't working and you didn't do **** until this game. When asked what you planned to change overall after losing in Game 6, your response was "I don't know." Congrats, you can win the regular season, you haven't proven dick in the postseason.

Alex Semin, GTFO. Being Ovechkin's best friend on the team only gets you so far. $6M for a 2nd line winger can be better spent on someone who can put up more than a single point in the playoffs. Your 40 goals in the regular season only gets you so far after 3 straight years of playoff defeats.

Tomas Fleischmann, ditto. You have 4 pts last year and 1 pt this year. See ya.

Regular season production from both of you only means so much at some point, and we've passed that point.

Mike Green, you get a bad rap for your play in your own end. You'll never be a Pronger-like shutdown D-man, but that's not your game. During the regular season, you at least showed the people who were willing to watch, you actually are average/above average in your own end. This series, your retarded decisions took all that away. The PP goal tonight came after your penalty, and the 2nd goal came after instead of playing the puck away, you went for the hit, thereby taking yourself out of the play. You'll turn only 25 a week into next season and are a Norris finalist for the 2nd straight season, but learn to play with your ****ing head when you're in the playoffs. Watch tonight's tape and see how your 2 mistakes were the difference.

Ovechkin and Backstrom, 10 pts in 7 games. You did your part. Ovy will be blamed because he is the captain, but the past 3 seasons in the playoffs, he's averaged more than 1 ppg.

Eric Fehr, you toiled away on the 3rd line all year, and was Top 5 in the league in goals per 60 minutes played, with a list with guys like Ovechkin and Crosby. You'll get your shot on the 2nd line next year, and will replace Knuble on the 1st line in '11-12.

John Carlson, you've shown at every level below the NHL that it's not challenging enough yet. You're 20 years old and looked like a veteran out there. You've earned your 25 minutes per game next year and are the future on D along with Green and Alzner.

$20+M in cap room, better ****ing use it McPhee.

The 1st #1 seed to be up 3-1 and lose to a #8 seed. Congrats.

Best home record in the league and you lost 3 games at home and led for a little over 6 minutes in 4 home games. Congrats.

SoCalBronco
04-28-2010, 08:01 PM
Carlson is indeed a badass. I'm very worried about him the next few years. IMO.....Semin is not bad, he's just inconsistent. When he's on, he's a monster. I think the Caps will probably benefit from this long term because McPhee will learn he needs to add some more physicality and some more defensive presence. Don't think Varlamov needs to be replaced, cause he's still young and not that bad at all.

I'm sure you guys will be back in full force next year, Herc. I suspect they will give Backstrom a huge extension this summer and maybe go after Volchenkov.

Hercules Rockefeller
04-28-2010, 08:08 PM
That's Semin's problem, he is too inconsistent, but $6M next year for a guy who was nonexistant when it really matters is just a waste of money.

They don't need goalie help, despite what people will say, Varlamov gets his shot next year in the regular season too.

As their pointing out on HF right now, 1-3 in Game 7s at home under Boudreau, and 2 of those losses came after being up 2 games in the series. He just looks in over his head at this point in the playoffs.

If it's true Volchenkov wants $5M per season, as much as I'd love him, that's just too much for someone who brings nothing to the table on the offensive side of the game.

gyldenlove
04-28-2010, 08:25 PM
The caps need a shutdown defenseman and a 2nd line center. Between getting those and giving Backstrom the 6 or 7 mill a year he is due the cap space will be pretty much gone.

If you would have told me the Pens would be the top seed in the east after the first round I would have asked for some of what you were smoking. What a crazy...crazy playoffs it has already been.

See....this is the thing...I'm grateful for the fact that the top three seeds are out and we have home ice in the East, but there's two problems....1) the Penguins are only 1-2 at home in the playoffs so far and 2) the Penguins have been very inconsistent this year in situations where they are expected to do well....its like they don't take the weaker teams seriously.....they lost so many games this year to teams like TB and ATL that had no business playing with Pittsburgh....we're not as mentally tough as last year...that worries me. If the Penguins think that they can coast to the Finals just because WSH, NJ and BUF are out....we're going to get raped. Raped. They CANNOT let up. They're just not good enough to do that and get by. Not this year. They need to really keep working hard. They do match up well with the remaining teams in the East, but there isn't a single team they can beat of the remaining three if they only play so-so hockey like they did in the regular season. Montreal just withstood an all out assault from Washington for 7 games. They are not going to roll over for us..........we need to BRING IT or else we'll be on the golf course. I know Sid's going to bring it........but is Geno going to bring it? Flower? The young defensemen? Can Staalsy actually contribute something offensively? The wingers will also have to earn their paycheck for the first time all year. The Penguins have been given a tremendous oppurtunity here to get back to the Finals..............but it wouldn't shock me in the least if they tripped over themselves on the way. They better focus and show some mental toughness.

Ray Finkle
04-28-2010, 08:52 PM
The Caps need a real coach and and a focus on team defense. Playing free wheeling pick up offense scores goals but there is no system in place there. The last two years, teams that were not as talented as them were able to take them 7 games....

Until Ovie has a Stevie Y transformation, they will always be this way.

See....this is the thing...I'm grateful for the fact that the top three seeds are out and we have home ice in the East, but there's two problems....1) the Penguins are only 1-2 at home in the playoffs so far and 2) the Penguins have been very inconsistent this year in situations where they are expected to do well....its like they don't take the weaker teams seriously.....they lost so many games this year to teams like TB and ATL that had no business playing with Pittsburgh....we're not as mentally tough as last year...that worries me. If the Penguins think that they can coast to the Finals just because WSH, NJ and BUF are out....we're going to get raped. Raped. They CANNOT let up. They're just not good enough to do that and get by. Not this year. They need to really keep working hard. They do match up well with the remaining teams in the East, but there isn't a single team they can beat of the remaining three if they only play so-so hockey like they did in the regular season. Montreal just withstood an all out assault from Washington for 7 games. They are not going to roll over for us..........we need to BRING IT or else we'll be on the golf course. I know Sid's going to bring it........but is Geno going to bring it? Flower? The young defensemen? Can Staalsy actually contribute something offensively? The wingers will also have to earn their paycheck for the first time all year. The Penguins have been given a tremendous oppurtunity here to get back to the Finals..............but it wouldn't shock me in the least if they tripped over themselves on the way. They better focus and show some mental toughness.

I think game 6 vs. Ottawa was a great wake up call for them. Seemed to me that they got some swagger back from that win. I'm hoping they come out motivated to put a team like the Habs away in 5 games and have that killer instinct that they lacked in the regular season. The question with the series coming up is how much longer will Halak stand on his head. He will have to come down to earth soon enough.

Unless Anaheim came off of what they were asking for at the '09 Trade deadline, the Caps weren't making a move for Pronger.

Anaheim wanted Carlson/Alzner + Varlamov/Neuwirth + picks. That just wasn't happening.

The Pens blast Montreal, 6-3 in Game 1. Pittsburgh with 4 PP goals after MTL's PK held WSH to 1 for 33 on the PP.

Markov and Staal injured. Sid with 2 more assists. P.K. Subban is going to be a very good player for MTL.

There are conflicting reports about the extent of Jordan Staal's tendon injury. He had surgery last night. Some initial reports say he's done for the season, but others say he could be back in the next series if PIT advances. Dan Bylsma did not rule him out for the rest of the MTL series, either.

Markov flew back to MTL last night, so he's out at least for a game, probably more.

I love watching everyone pick against the sharks as if they are sending the same choke artists out this year that they did the past few. This is a VERY different team with young gritty core and some old guys knocking on the door on their way out. 3 1/2 TOUGH lines and a young defense pairing that will be hawking for years to come. I won't predict the Sharks will win it all, but the choke factor just isn't there. The Avs gave us more energy than they can handle, but eventually, they just couldn't keep it up for a whole series. As far as I'm concerned, the Avs where a better defensive team than the wings by far and we play just enough D to win in a high or low scoring contest. The Sharks had to come back from a few disappointing scenarios to beat a young high energy Avs team, right up to, and including the final period of game 6. Having to reclaim the lead on hostile ice. The Choke factor is gone. you may be able to gt big Joe pissing himself, but the big pavelski, and the gooch, along with Demers and a red hot couture are not going to be rattled. With the leadership of a hard working pro like Boyle and a resilient danny heatley....I'll take my chances putting Marleau, thornton and that bone head murray on the ice. Hopefully those tag alongs will remember they are played to win hockey games.

Henrique is a good Canadian boy just like Mock. Mock told you he would pwn in the OHL. I'm sure you think I know nothing about the game, but Mock's family actually has a rich history with hockey. You're and idiot. Before moving to Iowa, Mock was born and raised in Manitoba. Mock's great grandfather basically founded Medicine Hat so get off my back, dickweed.

Mock's great uncle slapped Tretiak in the face at the 72 Summit Series. Mock's Mom actually dated Darryl Sittler for awhile in the 70s.........before Punch Imlach threw her out of the lockerroom....Ha! I warned you, Ruth! ROFL!

Mock has alot of contacts in this league. Back in the early 90s, I used to regularly go over to Esa Tikkanen's house to watch porn. Don't give me any shiat....it was Edmonton in the winter, WTF else was I supposed to be doing? God...I hated that hell hole. I was stuck in that dump for 7 months while the grain contract got worked out. It doesn't surprise me in the least that Bowlen is from there. BTW, I negotiated Nik Antropov's last contract......Mock also has Tomas Kaberle on speed dial, so STFU.

Mock's kittens are total puckbunnies. Diana went out with a hockey player a few months ago. He was practically at third base by the time he picked her up at the house. Mock was jealous. It turns out.......he couldn't even get it up. Mock wouldn't be surprised if it was Joe Thornton. Ha!

Mock has been closely following the Stanley Cup playoffs. Mock was amused when Lou broke the glass of jelly. Mock loves Travis Zajac......Brodeur's ex-wife looked fatter than Bob's Mom in the 2001 Finals, though. It's all meat to Mock, anyway. Mock respects the Pens, but I simply had enough when some douche on CBC compared Crosby to Moses on the air. IMO....Pitt really is in the league's pants. How very amusing. Beezer loves watching the Caps. He starts chewing his tail everytime Backstrom is on the ice or the Caps get an odd man rush. Ovie is kind of an a-hole, tho...he kinda reminds me of myself. :rofl: Beezer likes to start humping the reclining chair whenever they show that Geico commercial with the caveman and Mike Green. Mock is slowly starting to warm up to Versus....although I still would have preferred Gary Thorne and Bill Clement on ESPN. That was the playoffs at its finest....especially that badass ESPN hockey theme music. Mock didn't mind that Thorne and Clement were clearly flaming....it was painfully obvious, though. Did I tell you that I once met Pierre McGuire in the bathroom at a Chucky Cheese? It was epic. True story..........Mock once babysat P.K. Subban.........I told you morons 5 years ago that kid was Adrian Madise on skates. He's stronger than a horse on acid. Who's laughing now...biatch.

Some thoughts on the game today and in general.

1. Montreal had no business winning this game. At all. I can see why Herc was so frustrated. The Habs keep getting ****ING RAPED and Halak is literally saving the entire team.
2. Flower needs to be something other than below average. He's really not doing a hell of alot in the postseason this year.
3. They missed Staalsy on the PK.
4. Someone needs to send Geno a memo that his parents are in town....so it might be a good idea to stop playing like you don't give a ****.
5. They have to re-sign Sarge. Seriously, the entire PP will completely go to hell without him. I don't care that he's like 35 and is a liability in his own end. The team's winning percentage without Sarge the last few years is like somewhere around .400. Tang and GoGo cannot do the things he can do.
6. Guerin's been slightly less horrible in the playoffs, but he still needs to GTFO after the season. He literally cost Crosby the scoring title. He can take Fedotenko with him.

Geno and Flower got alot of **** for playing some mediocre hockey, but they really came up big tonight. It's about time these guys showed up. Very nice effort....this was the ultimate grit it out win. Flower didn't face a ton of shots, but he still had to make a number of difficult saves. I think this was his first shutout of the season. Halak was a beast yet again, but they were able to get one past him, this time.

PIT up 2-1 in the series. Big road win.

Quick-healing Staal close to returning to Penguins’ lineup By Dave Stubbs, Montreal Gazette May 5, 2010 8:02 PM Comments (2)

MONTREAL — This is how distressed Pittsburgh Penguins centre Jordan Staal was last Friday night when he had his right foot accidentally sliced to the tendon by the skate blade of Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban:

“I went to the bench, looked down and it wasn’t looking good,” Staal said Wednesday. “So I went to the (dressing) room and took the skate off, knew it wasn’t just a cut, went straight to the hospital, had a little surgery, went home and had a good sleep.”

That would a thigh-slapper coming from anybody but one of the famously indestructible Staal brothers. For them, for Jordan in this case, having a sliced tendon repaired in emergency surgery was probably like using a styptic pencil on a shaving cut.

Wednesday afternoon, less than five days after being surgically repaired in a Pittsburgh hospital, Staal skated an entire optional practice of nearly an hour at the Bell Centre, in full equipment. This, a day after he pulled on a track suit and took the foot out for a game-day, morning-skate test drive.

Don’t be the least bit surprised to see the 21-year-old native of Thunder Bay, Ont., back in the Penguins lineup Thursday night.

His return would be a testament to the legendary Staal-family powers of resilience — brothers Eric and Marc are fellow NHLers who rarely miss a shift, much less a game.

And it would be a dose of bad news for the Canadiens, who hardly need a fortified opponent trailing this series 2-1.

“I feel good, we’ll see where it goes from here,” Staal said. “Our trainers and doctors did a great job. It felt really good out there today. A full practice is always a good sign.”

Staal missed Games 2 and 3 in this series, his first scratches for reason of injury in a four-season NHL career whose iron man streak ended at 358 games.

Even a scalpel has proven to be just a minor inconvenience.

“When you’re going on a table in a hospital, it’s never a good thing,” he said. “It’s something a lot of players have to deal with, but hopefully I can get through it faster than usual.”

You almost wanted to ask him, “What took you so long?”

Staal paused to consider what percentage he might grade his recovery: “I’m not very good in math,” he replied, grinning, adding that he’s prepared to play with some pain.

“It’s just one big blob down there,” he added, trying to put a finer point on the centre of discomfort. “It’s something I’ll have to work through.”

Staal was especially impressive Wednesday in a 4-on-4 Penguins scrimmage, played on a shortened rink. Several times, he burst through defensive coverage as though he were running on all cylinders.

Head coach Dan Bylsma came within a breath of declaring his rugged centreman a game-time decision for Thursday’s pivotal fourth game. That is, before he remembered to hit the playoff smokescreen button.

“We’ll see how he talks with the trainers today and how his foot reacts,” Bylsma said. “But judging by the end of his practice, I’m a lot more comfortable with how he was skating than when he first got out there.

“And if he can skate like that, there’s a possibility depending on how he is (this) morning that he could be . . . still could be day-to-day.”


Staal called his second-period, Game 1 injury “a little freak accident.”

The tongue of his right skate was sliced through by Subban’s blade, and team training and medical staff finally removed the boot by scissoring off the laces.

No, Staal joked, the skate is not on eBay.

“To be honest, I was using it today. It still has some miles on it,” he said, praising Penguins equipment manager Dana Heinze for a surgical repair that was as efficient if a little less sterile than that enjoyed by his foot.

This isn’t a player who enjoys the sidelines. So on Tuesday, Staal floated the idea of a light skate by the medicos, who “kinda shrugged and said, ‘Why not?’ ”


Staal said he’d hoped Wednesday to stay out on Bell Centre ice as long as he could, provided he didn’t feel a regression. That didn’t happen in his hour on the rink with a dozen teammates.

His skate has been fitted with a protective shield, a piece of armour favoured by more and more defencemen and other shotblockers who always are just one more point-blast from the clinic.


Bylsma was non-committal about a return tonight by veteran Bill Guerin, who missed Game 3 and didn’t skate Wednesday.

“I’m going to stay undisclosed with what Bill’s dealing with,” the coach said, suggesting Guerin might skate Thursday morning.

The return of Staal seems less mysterious.


Five days ago, word swept the playoff world that surgery had ended his season.

Bylsma denied it, revising the prognosis to “day-to-day.”

Many laughed at that, but Wednesday, it was Jordan Staal who was wearing the broadest smile.

MTL 3 PIT 2

Lot's of missed oppurtunities. The Pens had a great chance to put the Habs in a hole and they couldn't get it done.

Series tied 2-2 going back to Pittsburgh.

Still don't know how Crosby's shot on their final PP didn't go in. Thought it was a sure goal. Pens seemed to be just a second late on so many rebounds and the first goal Flower gave up shouldn't have happened. I smell a 7 game series here.

Coyotes are in some trouble, even if they hammer out a deal. The Coyotes have lost money in every season since being in Phoenix. I can't see them lasting very long.

Looking forward to see the Nordiques or Jets back in the NHL. Or both, Florida is in trouble, Tampa Bay goes through new owners annually. Islanders still haven't been able to get approval for a new Arena.

4th worst attendance in the league, sounds pretty bad to me, altho i dont think thats what champ was getting at, many other teams much worse then the avs that could be moved back to canada where people actually care about hockey.

and this is the real reason i wont buy anything NHL related, aslong as teams can waste away in places like phoenix, but i cant have a team here in hamilton ? when balsillie tried to buy the preds years ago he "presold season tickets" and had sold 14,000 in the first 24 hours for a team that didnt exsist.

the hockey hotbed of California can have 3 teams, but ontario canada where people actually care about the sport cant ?

screw you betman, the nhl wont get one penny from me until hes gone, and a team is inhamilton, the sens and sharks played the first 3 years in arenas that held less than 11,000 people while at that time a current building sat empty.

I'm aware that this wasn't the point of your post, but the Avalanche have the record for consecutive sellouts with 487, ownership isn't worried about the fan base here. They went into this season with lower expectations than even the Broncos had last year and made the playoffs. Also our owner, Stan Kroenke, is currently trying to get majority ownership of Arsenal and is putting very little into the major teams he owns in Colorado, so fans are kinda pissed about that too. But I don't expect the same low attendance next year given the success of this year for the Avs.

And I completely agree with the rest of your post :thumbs:

There's a reason that was like my third point. I know. But Stan putting so much time into teams not in Colorado can cause dissent from some fans is what I'm saying. But yes, he isn't short changing the Avs or Nuggets monetarily (he is for the Rapids, however but that's beside the point)

I agree...to an extent. Though if you want teams in Canada...it's got to come from the Eastern Conference. Take Atlanta, take Florida...whatever. Just that if the Western Conference loses teams to the Eastern Conference...it will make traveling much harder for the West and the Divisional re-alignment becomes a mess.

i agree 100% its already a problem where you have detroit and columbus in the west ? they are in the friggin eastern time zone, detroits not such a big deal as they ahve established fans, but how do you expect columbus to gain fans when a fair number of games start at 10 pm, and no real rivals are within driving distance.

I think game 6 will be decided by who gets on the board first. If flower lets one by and gives the home crowd something to scream about I think the Habs have a chance to win, but if the Pens can get an early tally and not have a huge letdown in the 3rd period like they did in game 4 then the Pens will enjoying a few days off before the next round. Unlike the Caps it seems the Pens are not as frustrated by Halak standing on his head and making every save known to man. They seem to stay within themselves and not shoot shots that are gimmie saves like the Caps did.

The Pens fail to eliminate the pesky Habs despite a goal and an assist from Sid. It's going 7 just like the Washington series. As I said a few days ago...this just has the feel of the 96 Florida series......that's not a good sign. I wouldn't be surprised if the Canadiens pull it off, again.

It's probably a good thing that I'm in San Pedro today for a 3 day conference...so I didn't get a chance to watch the game. What a disappointment.....although as I said earlier in this thread, I'm not surprised we lost the series (I would like to think we'd be a bit more competitive in Game 7, tho). MTL outcoached, outplayed and just had alot more heart than PIT. I've been saying for awhile that we were a very inconsistent team this year. The Pens were given a real nice oppurtunity with the top seeds falling, but they just couldn't take advantage. It's probably better this way....because I suspect we would have had a decent chance at beating BOS or PHI (better matchup than MTL), but I'm equally convinced we'd get absolutely dismembered in the Finals by SJ or CHI. If we're going to go down...I'd rather have it be now than in the Finals so close to the Cup. It's kind of like losing in the Super Bowl...its not fun.

It will be interesting to see how Shero improves this team. This is a very good team, but with really big problems at wing and on defense. The losses of Gill and Scuderi really hurt. They've got too many puckmovers and not enough real defensemen. I like Gogo and Tang, but they aren't a presence in their own end. McKee was supposed to fill this void but he's not quite the guy he was 5 years ago. There are certain guys I'm willing to tolerate as liabilities in their own end....most notably Sarge. They have to re-sign him. He makes the PP go. I think the team's winning percentage in the last few years when he isn't in the lineup is like .400 or so. They need to find some help for Sid and Geno. Part of the reason they weren't effective this round was because they have no help at all. The two Ukrainians have been dragging Geno down for awhile, now. I don't want to see either of them on the team next year. Kunitz is the only halfway decent guy Sid's played with this year.....altho Dupuis had a nice year....he's not a first or second line player normally, tho. Tangradi needs to be ready to be a credible threat next year in the NHL. They need to get someone else, too. I'm impressed with what Letestu showed when he was brought up. He might man the 4th line center spot next year and they can move Talbot to wing on the 2nd line....he has great chemistry with Geno. I'm going to write this year as simply an off year for Flower. He's proven himself.....he just wasn't awesome this year, but I'm still confident in him.

Much props to MTL. I'm really impressed with Subban (and obviously Halak). Watch out 24....that kid might steal a Norris or two from your boy in the future. Hey Hogan.........who would have thought a week ago that you guys would last longer than we would in the playoffs? Gotta love the unpredictability of the Stanley Cup playoffs :).

We'll be back strong next year. The guys have accomplished so much the last few years, I think we kind of just expected to be back in the Finals again. You can't expect anything. Anyway....props to MTL. I look forward to watching the rest of the postseason as a neutral observer.

Actually, he's only had one series loss the past two years.

Also, if there's any team I don't feel bad losing to in talent terms, it's the Sharks. Thornton, Marleau, Heatley, Setoguchi, Pavelski, Boyle, Vlasic, Nabokov...They're older, but I think they're just as talented as Toews, Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Seabrook, Campbell, Keith and Niemi.

I'd pick the Sharks' forwards corps over the Hawks'(In a series, not long term), the Hawks' defense corps over the Sharks', and Nabby over Niemi.

It's close with the forwards...At ANY rate, the talent is close. Really close. It's gonna be a good series, and if the Hawks lose, I don't think it'll be Coach Q's fault.

I really have no idea. MTL has a large advantage in goal. Halak is an absolute beast. However, PHI is kind of a different animal than WSH or PIT. MTL loves to play the trap and frustrate high skilled run and gun type teams that have a problem playing a dump and chase physical game....but PHI is not the type of team that is afraid to play that type of game. PHI has to outmuscle guys in front of the net, because MTL loves to collapse around their goaltender in their own zone and block shots. If Philly can get in front of Halak and block his view or deflect some shots...that's how you score on teams like the Habs. MTL's forwards are nothing special...except for Cammalleri who is on an absolute roll right now. Pronger can probably erase him, since he hasn't really faced a true shutdown defenseman in the PIT or WSH series. Gomez and some of the others are ok....but their offense as a whole is not that scary. I don't see the Canadiens generating more than 20-25 shots on goal on Philadephia per game (on average) during this series.

PK Subban is a biatch to play against. He will give the Flyers some fits. He's going to be one of the very best defensemen in the game. I think they'll get Markov back in this series. Between Subban, Markov and Gill....I think the Flyers will have a tough time scoring goals....but it really comes down to which team can grit it out and score the ugly goals. This is going to be a low scoring series....PHI will have more shots on goal in this series because they have more talent and the way MTL plays.....we'll see if they can capitalize. MTL is an opponent that is frustrating to play and are very well coached by Jacques Martin. It should be a great series...will probably go 6 or 7.

I don't have a prediction.

That kind of comeback hasn't been seen in 35 years.....I think it's okay that Flyers fans are more than a bit elated on how it all went down.

I haven't seen a sports team show that much heart in a very long time.

Yesterday's WCF game sold me. The Blackhawks' cycle game will utterly crush the Sharks late in games and virtually seals the Sharks' doom in a 6-7 game series. If the Sharks can't close the deal in the next four, it's curtains, IMO, especially if Niemi continues his Jiggy-like antics.

Kings Assistant Coach Hardy, was arrested in DC for felony sexual assault. It is presumed that it is his daughter (21 yo) that is the victim.


LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- L.A. Kings assistant coach and former player Mark Hardy was arrested in Washington, D.C., accused of sexually abusing a female relative.
Eyewitness News has confirmed Hardy's sexual assault charge was upgraded from a misdemeanor to a felony. He was taken into custody overnight at the Mayflower Hotel (http://search.abclocal.go.com/search/results?station=kabc&search=siteSearch&q=Mayflower+Hotel). Police said the complaint came from a woman in her 20s who claimed to be a relative of Hardy's.
The woman said she and Hardy and several other people went to a bar to drink. They walked back to hotel, and she said she went into the bathroom to change into a T-shirt and shorts to go to bed. At some point, she says he got in bed with her, and she woke up.
There was apparently enough evidence to arrest him.
Hardy had a 15-year NHL playing career, which included two stints as a Kings defenseman. He was a member of the Kings team that advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1993. He returned to the Kings as an assistant coach in August 2008.
Hardy and his wife live in Manhattan Beach.
In a statement, the Kings organization said, "We are aware of the charge. Due to the legal nature of this matter, we will not have any additional comments at this time."
Hardy is set to be arraigned Friday unless he posts bail.

CHICAGO -- The chicklets came pouring out of his mouth, and one even got stuck in the back of his throat. Duncan Keith lost seven teeth in all, three on the top and four on the bottom, when the puck came off Patrick Marleau's stick and hit him square in the mouth.

That was with 12:30 remaining in the second period of Sunday's series-clinching win over the San Jose Sharks. Seven minutes later, after some pronto dental work behind closed doors, Keith was back on the ice for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Wow.

It's just missing teeth," Keith said through his bloodied and swollen mouth. "It's a long way from the heart."

Yzerman leaves the Detroit Red Wings, the only NHL team he's ever been with, both as the superstar captain and more recently as vice president.

The Lightning have been courting Yzerman heavily for at least two weeks, one source said.

Yzerman replaces Brian Lawton, who was fired last month.

05-26-2010, 03:19 PM
Why?

Because the Flyers are one of the most polarizing teams in professional sports. You're either a fan of them or you hate them...there's no middle ground.

For example, check out this bit of whining from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

Let me toss out a few reasons why it would be so hard to see the Flyers win it all:

The Broad Street Bullies. 0-39-3. Flyers fans. "Crosby [stinks]!" Hartnell. Daniel Carcillo ...

Did I mention Flyers fans?

The fortunes of the Penguins and Flyers have changed greatly since the Penguins ended 15 years of misery and that 0-39-3 streak against the Flyers early in 1989. The Penguins have won three Cups since then, the Flyers none. Somehow, the Penguins' Cup last season seemed better because they smacked down the Flyers in six games in the first round. Heck, their loss to the Red Wings in the Cup final the year before didn't seem so painful because they had eliminated the Flyers in five in the Eastern Conference final.

But, though the teams have changed, Flyers fans never change. They were rude and crude in the '70s. They're still rude and crude today.

"Crosby [stinks]!"

There has to be a reason that vile chant repeatedly vibrates through the Wachovia Center every time the Penguins play in Philadelphia. It can't just be because the fans think Penguins star Sidney Crosby is a whiner. All he ever did there was have the nerve to complain to the referees about Flyers defenseman Derian Hatcher using his stick to carve up his lip and knock out three of his teeth during his rookie year.

It has to be more than that. Flyers fanatics have to be jealous that the great Crosby doesn't play for their team. They'll always be jealous about not having him.

Do you really want to see those people celebrate as Hartnell and Carcillo hoist the Cup?

I didn't think so.

all good bro.... I refuse to blame leighton though. You cant leave guys all alone in the slot, all night for one timers and expect your goalie to make save. I dont care who it is.
If anything, Boush let in a "you Can NOT let that happen" goal. He can not give up the shortside on that goal. First off, it's a left handed shot, deep down the left wing. It was impossible to get the puck on net far side and yet, he gave him a foot shortside. Cant happen.
The Flyers have to do a better job cleaning up the garbage in front, and getting a body on the man with the puck. Center has to cover slot, I dont care what else is going on.

Chicago held serve. We have to do the same. I'm a little dissappointed the farking Ref lost sight of the puck, not once but twice and decided to blow the whistle on both. The first one stayed out, the second time we tied the game at 2 (except the ref blew it).

Like I thought, this is a very even series. PPl talked Chicago up so much but this series is very even. 2 weak goals were the game winners in both games. Thats the difference right now.

Did not see the game..... What went wrong?

First two Flyers goals came off Hjalmarsson turnovers right in front of the net.

Their third goal came with under a minute left in the 1st (right after the Blackhawks had gotten within one) when someone left Giroux completely alone in front of the net, allowing him to receive a pass and just dunk it in.

Their fourth goal came on a deflection off the back of a Blackhawks defensemen.

The fifth was empty net.

Overall some bad breaks paired with bad defense. Another strange game.

Enjoy brah... You deserve it after that game. Still gotta win 4 though. Been a greta series thus far. Heres to a game 7:thumbsup:

I don't care how long the series goes, just so long as it ends the right way. ;)

Also, yeah, it's been great. My dad was saying he hasn't seen a finals this good in forever(I think the Wings/Penguins were great both times, and the Lightning/Flames one was good too, but it's certainly been amazing).

This message is hidden because chadta is on your ignore list (http://www.orangemane.com/BB/profile.php?do=ignorelist).

I bet Chadta is pissed he is on my ignore list! He and his flyers are now not getting the national attention that they deserve... :thumbs:

Anywho... The Hawks scored 6 goals against 2 different goalies, that kind of makes you feel good does it not? It should be a good game Wednesday But I fear it will go all 7 games.

Really wishing Leighton woulda showed up and won a game in this series. He may have lost his job after tonights performance though

Just abysmal goaltending.....no excuses for it because there are none.

Onto game 6 at home.

Most kids do that for some reason....that's why there are so many young Red Sox fans where I'm at, too many Yankee parents.
