  1. Maybe. The 2002 Avalanche finished with 99 points and allowed the fewest goals of any team in the league. Before that sounds like a small accomplishment, please remember that they played the entire regular season without Peter Forsberg. That team was loaded with talent all over the lineup. They'd be a tough out for any team. Even though I hated them immensely, time has allowed me to appreciate those teams more for how good they were.
  2. It's inevitable (unfortunately)

    Outside of Chicago, the league doesn't have any big market teams playing in the Western Conference. LA may be the second biggest city in the US, but do they really generate big TV ratings for the league if they're making a deep playoff run? The Western Conference has always had that issue except when the Red Wings or Blackhawks were making the Finals in the last 20 years.
  3. I disagree. Teams like the Heat, Magic, Timberwolves and Hornets all joined the league before Jordan even won a championship. The only teams that joined the league in the 90's were the two Canadian teams. The Hornets then moved to New Orleans and the Grizzlies moved to Memphis. Jordan didn't have any effect on this. Sure he made the game more popular, but the NBA's best ratings were in the 80's during the Lakers/Celtics/Pistons rivalries. I can't say the league expanded in the US because of Jordan. Gretzky, on the other hand went to the Kings right before the NHL started expanding and moving into new markets in the South. Whether that's all because of him is debatable, but there's certainly an argument to be made there.
  4. It's inevitable (unfortunately)

    I want to see Vegas in the Finals, just to see what their ice conditions will be like. I've been to Vegas before in June, and it's very HOT.
  5. He was upset at the way Russians were portrayed by the American media, so he left. Not like he went to play for the Bruins or something.
  6. Did expansion to smaller markets in the South happen because of Jordan, though? The NBA had a big boom in the 80's because of Magic and Bird.
  7. What about the idea that he saved hockey by going to LA, as after that move, the NHL greatly expanded to non-traditional markets. Is that all B.S?
  8. Seriously? Gretzky didn't have any contribution to hockey besides numbers?
  9. The Penguins probably will retire his number. He might make the Hall of Fame depending on whether he can bag another Cup, reach more wins, and maybe win a Vezina. You have to remember, though, that two of those Cups belong to Murray more than Fleury. So he hasn't won 3 Cups as starter.
  10. Kid is a walking advertisement. Hideous euro hockey league jerseys. If it means not seeing Nyquist wearing it anymore, I'm all for it.
  11. GDT: Final Game Of The Season- Thankfully

    Mercifully, it's over. Sucks that Kenny and Blashill are returning. Let's hope they get lucky in the draft because there's not much else to look forward to.
  12. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    The whole organization is, sadly. Bad leadership starts at the top.
  13. Holland and Blashill expected to return

    What's this rich boy the Governor of exactly?
  14. So offense wins Championships?
  15. IMO, the 2003 Ducks were a better team than the 2004 Flames. Their playoff record was more impressive, as was the quality of opposition they knocked off in relatively easy fashion. It wasn't until the Finals where they finally ran into serious problems. We have to agree to disagree, but I don't see the Lightning as being good enough to beat the top two or three Devils teams of that decade, including the 2003 team. I think Jersey would shut down Tampa's fowards and would be able to score against Tampa's defense. They had the playoff experience on their side. I trust Brodeur more than Khabibulin in big games. To me, that Devils team wasn't that much different than the 2000 and 2001 version that went to the Finals. A few different pieces, but the same solid machine.
