Well this is what we miss during the playoffs. The only rivalry we had the past 6 years (penguins aside) have been Anaheim and San Jose... Rivalry we could somewhat still notice during the regular season.
What's surprising is the fact that it will take this series to finally maybe start one (well i would have loved to see more actions like game 2).... in the end we have been one more time too much of gentlemen during the playoffs....

We don't have the personnel to goon it up and play super aggressive. We just don't. We are built to play hockey the right way, with high levels of talent, probably what Bettman really wants, but Bettman isn't getting.

Holland did the right thing years ago by modeling this team for what Bettman had planned the NHL to become. It just didn't turn out that way, and therefore our team is currently handicapped because we lack the size and speed to get through all the mucky play. We really don't have fighters, we don't have size, and with the exception of Helm, we don't have speed. Speed is needed to beat this mucky hockey style.

As sad as it is, I bet if we had a 100% Helm in our series, things would be different. He's the one player that can outskate the Preds and get them running around. We can't shake the preds because man on man they can stay right with us, no matter what player it is. They're overall a faster team, and bigger so they bump us off pucks. To me that's what it seems is the biggest problem with this matchup.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

This was so funny I had to set it as my sig.

That was another sketchy call. Refs are trying to extend this series.

Yeah, this one's over. Pens getting PPs = goals for them. If the Flyers were getting this much time on the PP, they'd be tying this up easy.

Every goalie who's participated in this series should be lined up against the wall, and shot with a Mauser.

Looks like we might be the first team eliminated from the playoffs. Unless Vancouver loses tonight.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Philly gets boned on that again, since they should have had a PP.

This series is making the 80's Oilers blush at all these goals.

Of course, the 80's Oilers would probably score 15 goals against these teams.
