First off, let me say that I am a Wings fan.

At the same time, I am also a hockey fan. I love the sport of hockey. I play rec league 3 times a week, I watch the NHL Center Ice package, and I go to many minor league hockey games through the course of the year. Hockey is the greatest sport on the face of the planet, and I couldn't be happier watching the greatest players in the world playing in the NHL.

If the Pens do pull this off on Friday, I am going to be the first to give them huge props. Here is a team that spit in the eye of every stat out there. When the media said they weren't coming back from a 2-0 deficit, they kept working.

41 of 44 teams that win the first 2 games go on to win the series? Bah! The Pens can do it!
Over 80% of teams that win game 5 when the series is tied 2-2 win the series? What hooey! The Pens can do it!
12 of 14 game 7s in the Finals have went to the home team? Not today boys! The Pens can do it!

They won every game at Mellon Arena. The Wings played lazy in game 4 and game 6, especially game 6. Talk about a chance to close out a team and you play lazy for 40 minutes. If the Wings piss this opportunity away they have no one to blame but themselves.

In the end, if the Pens win game 7, I am going to congratulate them. I will watch the celebration and as a hockey fan I am going to be happy for them. They deserved it. While the masses here on this forum and other Wings fans that I know will be calling out conspiracy theories and bad reffing, they will be avoiding where the real blame should be put.

On the Wings themselves.

The Wings fans will realize that their team had their shot and failed because of lazy uninspired play about 3-4 months later when the new season starts up. It will be a summer of blame pointed at every other figure and thats just not right.

So if the Pens do pull this off, give them the props they deserve. They bucked the odds and did what they needed to do to take the series. The least you could do is give them a little respect.

Thanks for your 2 cents Gary Bettman...how was Phoenix yesterday!!!http://www.letsgowin...ult/ranting.gif
I'm Patrick Roy, *****!!! Ready to bob my head, because I still can't shake seeing Mike Ricci naked in the locker room out of my head, or the nightmare the wings put me through in the playoffs!!! I do not wear underwear during the playoffs, and I have a wings jersey on under my uniform!!! I worship Terry Sawchuk!!!

I think I'll wait to see who wins game 7 before I fall all over myself praising them. Still a game to be played, and the Pens don't have any hardware yet.

That said, the Pens are a good young team. I just think you are more than a little premature.

Now that is funny.



P.S. Gary, what the hell is the big idea with the 2 Pens penalties in the 3rd? You are a sick sick man flirting with destroying the whole plan. Nest time, fix the game before the Ambien kicks in.

Aren't you a ray of sunshine. Spill this at the Pens' board if you want adulation. I doubt you'll get much here less than 24 hours after a loss that could have been a Cup win.

I already give the Pens respect it is your post that I find inexcusable.

One simple question: is it possible for you to say, "you guys have done great: nobody thought you would even make the playoffs, and now you are within one game of winning the Cup" and "your play in game five disgusted me" (for example)?

I can give them all the kudos in the world, but there isn't a chance in hell that they are winning the Cup. I didn't say if this, or that, or... there is no chance that they win the Cup, period!

It is ridiculous to assert Pens have "no chance" of winning Cup. You could say they only have a 25-35% chance but NO chance? One bad bounce could be all it takes and we're due for some bounces after our rotten luck in games 1 and 2.

I am confident as well, but I still have this bad feeling that creeps in every now and again.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

Well, the Bettman crying comments stick out like a sore thumb on a sore loser. It deserves a reply. Can you live with that? Or am I a "troll" because I have the audacity to laugh at some of the more ridiculous comments here?

Shut up, dude. Take your whining and crying and blowing snot bubbles to the day care center. The Wings had TWO power plays in the third period last night.

I am continually surprised at how man poor sports there are in Hockey Town.


You guys talk a huge game about how objective and awesome you are as fans, but only when the Wings win. God forbid if the Wings lose, it is the refs and the league and the roofies in the Gatorade.

Really, if you step back and look at your own blubbering, you'd realize how sickening it is.

If the Pens win the cup, the names of all the refs have to be stamped on it, too. No way can every win be on home ice without outside influence. I would feel more than a little ashamed if the Wings had to play like that to win the cup.

You got your bounces with Scuderi making two saves in the crease yesterday. You got your luck when Osgood flubbed Kennedy's goal. As a matter or fact, you've had more nounces than us. That being said, I am begining to believe these conspiracy theories about teams throwing games. Look at game 5 (for PIt) and then game 6 (for us.) Whatever, I am just as frustrated as the Pens fans were Saturday night. Of course Pit has a chance buddy, 50-50 is what I am looking at, but so does Detroit, and it is perceived we have the advantage being at home...

to the OP, I for one will not give congrats to Pitt, I hate all teams that aren't Detroit, so why would I? What was Hossa's deal yesterday?

No. I haven't been to a Pens forum; lately or ever.

Whatever happens there is both no excuse or of no consequence to me.

I post here, not there.

My comments pertain to what is on this board, not another board.


I talk hockey and I reserve the right to call out a poster, post, idea, or theory however and whenever I want.
