True, true. Of course I'm assuming that the Pens will attract players like Iginla, Hossa, and Murray all the damn time so they'd have lots of chances at winning the cup. And he has to healthy as well.



 

The only legitimate troll post I made was claiming that the McCollum call up was a conspiracy to create an excuse for the team's inevitable playoff exit. That was it. Every one of my Crosby posts is honest-to-god. Oh well, now I've been suspended for 7 days because of them. I'm not acknowledging the suspension, though. I should've been suspended for my first troll post, but definitely not the 'Sid has a chance to be better than Wayne' arguments.

 

Pittsburgh never "attracted" Hossa, he was traded there. And he passed up two opportunities to re-sign with the Penguins in favor of the Red Wings and Blackhawks.

I don't think I'd describe Montreal as one of the better offensive teams in the league if you watched how they played to close the season: they were the #2 seed but they fell in ass-backwards.

 

By the same token, the Islanders were probably the fastest team in the playoffs, and that clearly created a matchup problem.  It's always about matchups.  Just because a team has a low seed doesn't mean they won't have some advantages.

 

The Habs were 5th in the league in goals scored.  3 goals behind Chicago for 2nd and they were 5th in the league playing teams like Boston and Ottawa multiple times who are a couple of the best defensive teams in the league.

Go Sens!  Upset these morons and pull the plug on their playoff run.

My point is that if you watched how Montreal was playing the last couple weeks of the season, they were struggling.  It doesn't matter what season stats you have when you enter the postseason on a 4-6 run.  They weren't playing good hockey when it mattered.

 

At any rate, every series comes down to individual matchups.  Just because one team looks good or another team looks bad doesn't mean that these are "trends" -- it means that those were the results of whatever strengths/weaknesses of those two teams when they were paired up against each other.  I try not to paint with such a broad brush when it comes to analyzing matchups.

Dear Ottawa Senators,

 

You now face the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 7-game series.  F*** 'em up.

 

Thanks for your time,

It's been a pretty boring game so far, honestly.  I thought that Ottawa was playing the trap very well, as Pittsburgh was completely unable to move through the neutral zone or sustain pressure in the offensive zone.  But... trap games just aren't much fun to watch.  As usual, the Penguins power play has been lethal.

 

Ottawa's transition game has been pretty good.  If they get a sustained forecheck going, keep the puck in Pittsburgh's zone, the Penguins defense is liable to break down.  I am pretty sure the game would at least be tied right now if Fleury had started.

I'll take Datsyuk against anybody in the league in any situation. Including Zetterberg's b****.

Go Sens!

This game is putting me to sleep. But I figured it was gonna be the least interesting anyway, especially with two O6 series happening.

Yep....Pens having pretty good luck tonight...I hate the Pens.

 

Looks like we are stuck with Edzo and crew for our games since Strader is calling the Pit game...sure wish we could've drawn Strader instead...
