  2. Remember, even though the team has 2 world class players in Datsyuk and Zetterberg, for some reason we're supposed to just be happy that the team made the playoffs
  3. I can't wait until the Wings pull the goalie and Yzerman comes down and is the extra attacker for the Wings.
  4. Don't blame Holland one bit for losing out, that's out of his hands. However, now we'll see just how good a GM he really is. With Lidstrom gone and Zetterberg/Datsyuk being 30+, the next 5 years will determine if Holland truly is one of the best GM's or just some guy who happened to be in the right place at the right time.
  5. Former Kings GM Dave Taylor deserves a lot of credit. He drafted Kopitar, Quick, and Brown. Only Kopitar was a 1st rd pick and not top 10 if I recall correctly.
  6. How fitting that Staples' slogan is "that was easy".
  7. Knowing Lou's history, he'll probably fire the coach after this game.
  8. Dang, my guesses on the 3 F's that he wanted to reconnect with were fanaticism, fear mongering, and Fox News.
  9. Why is no one focusing on the intriguing storyline of Ponikarovsky having played for the Kings last year?
  10. Coyotes are toast (french toast if they wind up moving to Quebec City).
  11. A team like the Coyotes that doesn't possess top-end talent may win a round or two, but they eventually meet a team that can match them in the grit department and has more skill.
  12. The only positive of bringing back Holmstrom is that my Red Wing lineup in my Sega Genesis games will remain somewhat relevant.
  13. I'm always sad when Hamrlik is eliminated, for some reason I've picked him in every pool since '95.
  14. Pretty surprising.
  15. I think this actually helps Columbus. I thnk over the long run Grigorenko may turn out to be a better player than Yakupov, the same way Malkin has eclipsed Ovechkin and Seguin seems to be overtaking Hall. Unless there is a big difference between players, I'd rather go for the centre anyway.
