No. Wings should play a funner and more competitive team than the Penguins. I want to see Caps/Wings series. Penguins aref****** boring to watch, all they do is interfere, hold, clutch... pathetic hockey. They are disgrace to NHL...

Caps would be a much better series.

This thread sucks, btw.

******* boring team that beat you in Game 7 on your home-ice when the Wings had two chances to close it out up 3-2 and gagged it... I thought having Datsyuk back and having the two 3 day layoffs between games 6 and 7 it was a mortal lock for the Wings to win?? Because as we know no opposing team has EVER and I mean EVER skated with the Cup at the Joe. Well guess what?? They have now and you were looking at them Friday night.

You're right about one thing the Caps would be a much better series for you guys because it's easy to beat a team like the Caps that has no defense and suspect goaltending something the Penguins dont have. What happened to the Wings winning this series in 5 Snazzy?? I'd love to have a rubber match because the Penguins and their fans today during the awesome parade today in our great city are drinking the finest champagne of all after last season and it's called Sweet Revenge!!!

The Penguins goaltending IS suspect.


Don't act like Fleury had any kind of effect on the outcome of the series. At least not in a positive manner.

He outplayed Osgood in Games 6 and 7 and made big saves late in both of those games. See the saves on Cleary in Game 6 and Lidstrom in the winding seconds of Game 7 remember those?? If you say otherwise you either didnt watch the same games I did or you're in denial and a complete idiot...

To tell the truth, I can't watch current NHL. Too much clutching, interference. I'd love it to be 4 on 4, that would really open up the ice and you regularly see 10-8 type games. Scoring brings in the fans. These endless 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 games are just BORING.

Capitals and Wings series would bef****** epic. The ratings would be surreal and it would push NHL to be a much more popular sport. I get goose bumps just thinking about it!

Who the hell would want to watch a 10-8 game? That'd just be rediculous. I'd go to a basketball game if I wanted to see some high scoring affair.

Well, those that want revenge and to meet the Pens now understand how we felt all last year.

I don't know how likely a three peat finals will be, but you never know. It would be kind of boring in a way, it would be nice to see some new blood in there but I think both the Pens and Detroit have talented cores and smart GMs and neither teams are going away. I think some of the "next dynasty" talk for the Penguins is premature, but we won't just fall apart, either. People thought we were going to fall apart after last year's finals as well.

One thing is for sure, if it's Detroit vs. Washington next year you bet your ass I'll be rooting for Detroit.

yea, any run of the mill goalie could hold a team which you all call the best team in hockey to 1 goal in game 6 and 1 goal in game 7.

that aside, when fleury is on he is very good obviously. when he is not on he is bad. hopefully as he matures (only 24 yrs old) he is more consistant.

It's why Crosby outplayed and outclassed Ovechkin in the 2nd round this year in the playoffs when the Pens overcame a 2-0 deficit without home-ice and won a game 7 on the road in Washington. Correct me if Im wrong Snazzy but wasnt there another team that was down 2-0 without home-ice that lost a deciding Game 7 at home in a place where an opposing team had never skated with the cup?? Who was that other team that the Penguins did that too in the playoffs this year do you remember??

Easy hero. I know you're just responding, but it's clear that nobody takes that guy seriously.

I'll be honest, I never really thought about it until Hockey News brought up the idea during the finals. It's entirely possible...we'll both be considered favorites going into next year. The only question is how the Pens handle the hangover.

The idea of taking it back from them sounds great, but really, I could give a crap who we play if we win the thing. Although an Original Six final (Bruins being the most likely opponent obviously) would own.

Game six was an easy read. One save doesn't make a great goaltending performance.
Game seven, good save, but that was the biggest challenge he had all night.

Once again, Fleury was not challenged much in those last two games. He did not outplay Osgood (neither outplayed each other), and his performance didn't win the game for the pens. It was the team that was able to press and beat Detroit.

Don't act like a homer and tout Fleury as some god now that he won a cup. If that was the case Osgood would be considered the best goaltender in the league next to Marty B.

So GAA is now relevant?

I never said he was run of the mill, but don't act like he is a consistent goaltender. Games one, two, and five were plenty of evidence.

Yes, he is great when he is on. But he isn't always on.

Also, EVERYONE knows what Cleary's gonna do when he gets a breakaway.

How did Crosby outclass Ovechkin? He had 1 more point than Ovechkin in the 7 games and the Penguins had 15 more powerplays than the Capitals! Man, you're dumb.
