Here is a scary thought... so far based on the 1st round the only team that remains with a Cup victory since 2000 is the Devils, and that is if they win tomorrow. We could be going into round 2 with every team not having a Cup since at least 2000.

Headline: Third-string rookie outplays Tim Thomas.

Secondary headline: Tyler Seguin should be ashamed of himself for his awful series.

So, I guess Thomas won't have to turn down any big invitations this year. I think I just heard Obama chuckle just a bit. Karma served?

yes, I see others have thought of this. I've been thinking about it for a week now.

The last 4 winners? IN ORDER?

I blame Bettman, mister 'grow the game.' He is trying to establish to the 'new' hockey fans that 'anyone can win the Cup.' Real hockey fans don't care,(who is playing so much, we will watch any teams play. It's the Cup.) and fair weather fans that only watch the playoffs can get wound up about their local teams.

Think of it. Phoenix, trying to convince their city to support them. Nashville, full of Pred Wings, advance to the second round over the Red Wings. If the Rangers fall, (and if my theory is true, they will), all of the Original 6 will be out.

f*** this stupid CBA its time for Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and New York to bring it down finally. I mean what kind of second round is thiis?

at the max 1 original six team other than that only small market teams supported by OUR money thanks to revenue sharing? I didn't care if the Bruins or Caps win but seriously this parity crap has gone too far. Imagine a team like Florida or St. Louis winning the cup, stanley cup parade with an attendance of 5.000 ? *lol*

Guess our only hope rests on the shoulders of Fehr.

Now, now, let's be fair - Anaheim did draw over 15,000.

This. He had a pretty underwhelming year considering what he signed for last summer and was a healthy scratch several times. Good for him.

Never knew that. He apparently attended the 01-02 Wings training camp.

Yep.

It was quite a ridiculously difficult team to make.

Pavel Datsyuk did it though. :cool:

Holtby's a boss. He's like, "Go ahead. Make my day, punk."

Dales got the boys going good, guy is going to be a great NHL coach.

I think I am actually pulling for the Caps now, hope Ovie gets his cup so all the Crosby lovers can eat man sausage.
You may not like tough hockey, but it's winning hockey.
