If the Sharks pull this series out, by some form of miracle, how many of you will root for the Sharks the rest of the way?

I would have a tough time rooting for the Hawks if they advance but I could probably get by on the Canucks.

I would pull for whichever team comes out of the West though, because the East belongs to the Pens.

Anybody but the Pens. Anybody.

I will root for the sharks if they by some chance win the series. I respect Todd McLellan. So I would root for them. But the thing is they are simply not gonna win the series.

I would root for the Sharks after that and Chicago last of all (for the West).

The only team i would come close to cheering for is the Canucks if the Wings get eliminated.

Avs>Yotes.

Done in 6 > done in 7.


Did you seriously just imply the Avs are bettet then the Yotes?

Oh god.

Sharks are scared.


Oh, I hope so, in the sense of extremely wary, not overconfident, that is.

My sister said, "Oh man, I wish the Sharks would have taken game one like 6-0 or something!"

I wheeled around on her, "NO! No way would I EVER wish that. Not for game one OR game 7. That's a recipe for Tortoise and Hare syndrome that I don't want the Sharks infected with. It's a recipe for CHOKE, as the opposing team comes to the next game far, far more wary, focused, respectful, and worse yet, loaded for bear."

Worst thing for the Sharks, really. I like the fact that it was a one-goal game.

No, I would much prefer that the Wings go away from game one feeling good about themselves, thinking, "It was only a few lapses on our parts", or "If it wasn't for bad officiating", or "We were just tired after a long series"...anything that takes credit away from the other team, and says essentially that your own regular game and game play should be enough to do the job.

I'm glad that few are favoring the Sharks, thinking of them as chokers, pointing to their past performances, etc., because in the past, whenever the Sharks are called out and held up as the favorite darlings (as Melrose et al are doing TO the Wings now) the Sharks waltz onto the ice for their Superiority coronations, only to get their asses handed to them by a hungrier, more respectful team.

By all means, keep Sharks the underdogs. Pay no attention to home ice advantage, or even their seeding, which is regular season and means absolutely nothing. Make the Sharks very, very small in the eyes of the Wings players. Crown Detroit the de facto superior and more deserving winner up front. Tout their superior depth, and puff them way the hell up!

Sharks: Paint them like a nobody long shot that really doesn't stand a chance (like, say Rocky Balboa the nobody). Make the Wings the unbeatable and mighty Godzilla, the mother of all unbeatable teams. And never let either team forget it. Only then will the Sharks have a solid chance at dusting the Wings and moving that much closer to the Cup. In other words, scare the f*** out of them -- just like everyone did to a much younger, much less talented Sharks in 1994.

Unlike the last couple of playoff seasons, where the Sharks were virtually crowned by many in advance (WHICH MADE ME CRINNNNGE), and made out as THE TEAM to watch and fear (ooh, so much younger, bigger, faster, blah blah blah), they're actually getting the disrespect they need that can actually throw off ego and keep their adrenaline and concentration and focus at consistent winning levels.

In that case, then the Sharks are gonna dominate the series. It's gonna be so easy for them. It'll be like a playoff bye.

That's the kind of self-contradictory stuff I want the other teams fed with and believing. Nobody "easily" dominates any series, and if I thought the Sharks believed anything of the sort, or that it was going to be easy for them, I would wish a GIANT SPANKING onto them to set their minds right.

For example, if the Sharks are going to lose Game 2, what do you think I would prefer -- to lose in overtime by a lucky bounce or bad officiating call, or to be completely humiliated and blown out by superior play in a 9-0 shooting gallery/shutout?

I would gladly, happily choose the 9-0 defeat. Make the Sharks feel like cornered, life threatened animals in Game 3.

From now on, Patrick Roy will be rolled out to and from the Avs' bench like Hannibal Lecter. - BottleOfSmoke

I do live in China, but I'm back in California for the moment - niece's wedding, and also finishing a book that I'm writing (boring, geophysics related).

I'd like to see the Sedin Twins get a cup, despite Burrows and overrated Bobby Loo being on the same team. Plus, if Sammy gets another, I'm sure his Swedish friends back here in Detroit will never hear the end of it, which could motivate them to win another.

EDIT: And post #7,000 for me!!!

Thank goodness for those "X posts for a victory" threads, eh?

No chance. I realize you probably saw more of the Yotes than you have in years, and I think they're a formidable team, but I've seen a lot of games by both this year and this Avs squad is a better team. Bryz is a great goalie, but Anderson is more dependable.

Like the Blues and Bluejackets, this year was a fluke for the Yotes. Next year's Avs will probably win their division. The Sharks got lucky this year, with 2 of the Avs key forwards out, which won't be the case next year.

If you eliminate us and Chicago beats Vancouver, I would definitely pull for you.
If you eliminate us and Vancouver beats Chicago, different story, more players I like on the Canucks.

All I really care about is someone please for the love of all that is decent knock the f'ing Penguins out of the playoffs, anyone will do, don't care if it is Montreal (yeah right), Boston, Philly, Vancouver, San Jose, even Chicago, just someone please get rid of them.
