This is the Hawk's year to win. If they don't win it this year they will be screwed, with all of the big contracts that kick in next season. They will be over the cap with only 14 players signed next season :scared:

I could see Philly beating Chicago. On paper the teams are very similar, lots of high priced scorers, strong D's, and solid goaltending. Philly blocks a lot of shots, they could steal a few games.

I know alot of people still like hossa, but I'm still feeling sour about him leaving. I would be pretty happy if he lost again, but thats just me :hehe:


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.

There is no way that Hossa can avoid winning the cup this time. Neither of the teams in the East can compete with the way that Chicago has, and will continue, to play.

The difference between this year and the past two years is that Hossa is not a rental nor a glorified rental. Maybe the Hockey Gods will reward him for finally committing to a team long term.

I still don't have as much against Hossa as others. But go Flyers/Canadiens, screw the Hawks

I don't hate Hossa, but I do think it would be funny if he lost again...at this point. I just really don't like the Hawks. Never have.

If there's one team that can take out the Hawks now it's the Flyers. For once in my life I actually want to see Pronger's team to win.

Philly > MTL

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

as much as I admire Flyers run, it still pains me to think this retarded franchise wins a cup.
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

The "curse" will be broken this year. Chicago will take the Cup in 4, maybe 5 games. They're so far ahead of Philly and Montreal it's not even funny.

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 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.

I hope he scores like 6 goals in the Final including the Cup clincher to vindicate himself and spite all of you.

Sorry, the curse is Conklin's, not Hossa's. Hossa's only been in 2 lost SCF (where Conklin was present in both).

On the other hand, in the past 4 years, Conklin has been involved in:

SCF loss
SCF loss
ECF loss
SCF loss

No Conklin... Hawks take this, imo.

If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

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?

Why so?

I have no problem with Hawks winning it all this season. They play outstanding hockey and actually remind me DRW back in 2007 and 2008. Flyers are a bit similar so I'm expecting a great SCF.
Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!
