Besides Whitney and Orpik, the Pens have the same young D that almost every other NHL team has, guys that could make it up permanently. They'd take Johnson, much harder to find first pairing D than it is to find wingers that can play on the top 2 lines.

DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS: A particularly unsettling 7-3 home loss against the Detroit Red Wings in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Sunday night left Canucks fans considerably upset.

A lack of discipline by the Canucks resulted in unnecessary penalties and 11 power-play chances for Detroit, which converted only one.

The public backlash on Web sites was directed at coach Marc Crawford and forwards Todd Bertuzzi and Markus Naslund.

The Canucks have lost six of their past seven and would be out of the Western Conference playoffs if they started today.

Discuss among yourselves.... Weren't those three staunchly defended heros not so long ago? There is that goes around, comes around thingee.

It must be a special occasion for Tred to come back from hiatus.

Here you go, for old times sake.

Part of it is that Vancouver simply is not as good as advertised. They never really have been. For some reason they've been considered amongst the league's elite teams despite the fact that they've won a grand total of one playoff series since their run to the Finals in '94.

Their goaltending is average at best even with a healthy Cloutier. They take far too many dumb penalties. Their stars have a habit of coming up small when the chips are down.

This really shouldn't come as any surprise and nothing will please me more than to see them headed for the golf course when the playoffs start.

Would it have killed Kelly or McNab to ask Deader about his knack for killing the Red Wings? It seemed like they kept asking the same question in different variations.

[QUOTE=broncocalijohn]i personally loved it tonight! The Ducks were sitting in 5th place before the Avs kings game but i think there are teams 5 - 10 all within striking distance. Giggy is back at his high as in when Ducks hit it to the Finals. This team is on fire right now. If this keeps up, AVS are in trouble come Wednesday. Ill be there and screw the Kings. Team is hurt more than any team in the NFL the last two seasons played. Walking wounded. Gutty 24 Champbailey but cant never get a full team together. Here is to the last 3 weeks! GO DUCKS![/QUOTE]


The Ducks actually have fans?

Can't believe those twins are 5 years old...

No one went to the net - and owned it like Deadmarsh.

Wow! Do my eyes deceive me?! Tred!! It's about freakin time!

It was a very cool ceremony, wasn't it? His cheapshot comment just made the whole thing.

Well as it sits right now after losing tanger is some players will have to raise the bar or we go down in a ball of fire, the good part is it seems sakic and duke ahve already made some moves as well as lappys line starting to gel. But most importantly budaj MUST start to play consistantly or the abouve mentioned factors won't mean squat unless they can out score the other team in a shootout.I would prefer a solid effort on both ends of the rink and winning these games outright.

I would have thought Kolesnick would have started at least one game since the trade. Anyone else surprised? If the Budaj that showed up last night comes to play every game, we're in ok shape, if not.....yikes.

Get well soon, Tang.....and I mean it, really soon.

Fine...we'll assume Avs fan is whining this year. The point was...it's tradition EVERY year for Kings fan to whine about injuries.

Andy Murray fired by the Kings!

"The Los Angeles Kings have relieved head coach Andy Murray and assistant Coach John Van Boxmeer of their coaching duties.
The Kings have hired new John Torchetti as interim head coach.
"The Kings would like to thank Andy Murray for his loyalty and dedication to our franchise over the last seven years," said general manager Dave Taylor.
"A decision of this magnitude is never easy and cannot be taken lightly. Ultimately, I have not been happy with the direction our hockey team has been going, and without making a change now, I didn't see that direction changing. We wish Andy and John Van Boxmeer the best of luck going forward.""

Wow. Didn't see that one coming. During the home stretch of the season while the team is in the thick of the playoff hunt too.

Bwahahahahahaaha!

Wow, that was kind of a rash move by the Kings, IMO.

Way to go Wild! Thanks for beating those Flamers for us.
