Uggg I know. Same here.
I can't believe there are Wings fans on here that say they want the Hawks to win. That's like saying you want the Avalanche to win.
Absolutely agree. I don't see how any Red Wings fan can even think about rooting for the Chicago Blackhawks and their obnoxious, bandwagon fanbase.
I thought watching Anaheim and Pittsburgh win it all was bad, but Chicago would be the worst of all for me. I hate that franchise - although they basically do everything now the way the Red Wings do, so the Hawks' success is pretty much a credit to the Wings' organization. Sadly, I don't think the Flyers stand a chance against the Blackhawks so I am preparing for the worst.
I'm sorry, Hawk fans don't deserve a cup. THeir all mostly band wagoners. Only the true ones, which is what? 30 percent of the Hawk fans. All they do is trash talk and don't know crap about hockey. How bout them years in 2000-2006 where you had 10,000 fans show up to home games. And they couldn't even SHOW THE DAMN HOCKEY GAME on Television. Sorry, not rooting for the hawks, their fan base is like the New York Yankees fanbase. And I can't see Happy Giggdy Kane lifting up the cup and he thinks he's the s*** everytime he touches the puck. And I can't see Red head Carrot head lifting the cup.
He was a ghost in this series from an offensive standpoint.
So disappointed and empty right now. I had planned on typing out something substantial with many good points and questions about the offseason etc etc. I just can't do it right now. For those that wanted the Sharks out, enjoy. For those that didn't and hate the Hawks, sorry. Gonna go do...I dunno. Something. Or maybe I'll just mope around the internet like a moron for a few hours before I have to sleep for work. I've got nothing at this point.
Most Shark fans are, I'm scared for this offseason. I'm scared that Marleau will leave, i'm scared if Nabokov is gone, he will bite us in the ass for years to come, like Kipper did in 04. And Heatley is a effing joke this playoffs, he came to San Jose to score those dirty goals in the playoffs, he only scored 2 goals and showed no hustle or heart, every other Shark showed determination and heart. Why can't effing Heatley?
We need to reamp our D, and if Nabokov doesn't play for us next year, we just need a goaltender for a few years, then Stalock will come in. I know its dissapointing, but we made it far and we showed signs that we will be back next year. It seems like we finally know what it takes to come this far, keep the core together, and we shall be back next year. We haven't made the conference finals since 2004, be proud of this team, what it has accomplished. They gave it their all, thats all we can ask for.
