hey all, first post here. I've known defensemen for a litle while through boards, myspace, etc.. stand up guy and glad to see such a good thread here, (less SamADelphia).
heh, the Sharks board is about 50 percent hockey and 50 percent randomness. People fight amongst each other on that board (myself included) more than we ever could with opposing teams' fans. It's sad. You should see Sam on the Sharks board - it's nothing but arguments with a few others. Sometimes it's entertaining, sometimes it's tedious. Never is it hockey related debates!
anyhow, a little hockey talk from me now, if you don't mind:
Sharks can't and don't expect to beat the wings in the same fashion as they did in game 1. Sharks are best protecting a lead when it's done at the other end. That's what they did so well in Nashville. I cant' imagine how frustrating that must have been for their fans! You saw spurts of this when Grier was out there but far too often the Sharks were content with clearing the puck and sitting back. Detroit got a plethora of shots but I give credit to the Sharks for blocking shot after shot, and then even more credit is due to nabokov. Sharks fans couldn't be more pleased with Nabby because the huge question mark with his play over the past year and a half has essentially disappeared.
Whether it's the Sharks or Wings to advance, there's one thing we can all agree on: THE DUCKS BETTER NOT MAKE IT TO THE SCF!!!! ughhhhhhhhh Sharks or wings, PLEASE.
