Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Philly > MTL
I think Philly can pull up an upset against Chicago, there defense is incredible specially at blocking shots.

and I actually want Hossa to lift the cup finally. he's a great guy and I most certainly wish
him to win the grand prize at last.
it is a little bit pity, though, to see yet another "suck for a number of years and collect high picks"
team succeed and I'd like the league to reconsider draft lottery should the Blackhawks win this year.
I didn't like it for years, because it's artificial parity and plain and simply unfair to good GMs.
but now with (likely) 2 champs winning the cup thanks to years of sucking and having high picks - maybe
the NHL will finally realize this is not parity but giving unfair advantage to bad teams. because
it's not like the Penguins of 2004 or Blackhawks 2006 were so bad to finish at the bottom of the
standings. they did it very much on purpose. and that's unfair

I find it funny that Hossa is repeating his playoff performance from last year though.. he only has 2 goals and 11 points, causing him to get some criticism, but at the same time just like he did for us he's playing good hockey. You can bet that if by some freak accident Chicago loses the final he will be just as hated as he is around here for not doing more.

I Hate the BlackHawks.... So I am invoking the curse!
I want the Flyers out of the East (despite the gag reflex induced by Pronger), mostly because I don't want les Franšais getting any more cup wins ahead of us than they already are (yes I am petty enough to want the overall cups won record ). As for Marion, Hossa made trade off decisions based on economic climate (not just financial costs but overall opportunity costs, any econ majors feel free to elaborate =P), and seeing as he's still playing and we're not you'd have to say he made good ones.
That said, it's not like the East has much of a shot, but if the Hossa curse stands I will thoroughly enjoy watching the festivities, and will personally deliver a 21 beer salute.

On the other hand, in the past 4 years, Conklin has been involved in:
No Conklin... Hawks take this, imo.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

No kidding. I got nothing against Hossa in the grand scheme of things but I'll be laughing inside if he loses a 3rd year in a row with a different team. How much bad luck can you get if that happens?
if the hawks lose the finals to the east I will laugh so hard. i hope this curse keeps going strong!
most retarded thread ever posted.
