I would say yes. I think they'll get to the finals, but more importantly they'll be playing teams in the Western conference that will fold (Dallas, Sharks or Ducks). MAYBE... maybe Calgary would be a threat, if only becasue they are so physical. Aside from Dallas, the WIngs are the only consistent team on that list. I think they'll get out of the West without injury, barring some freak accident. I think the Eastern team will be beat up, and there you go. Who knows though.
The President's Trophy curse is a myth.... I think it will be a sweet run. Can't think about it yet though....
With the trade deadline coming up it is still uncertain. Anaheim has 1st, 2nd and 3rd round picks to use and will pick someone up at the deadline. Will Detroit be able to counter?
Wilson (the volleyball/Sharks coach) was showing some stats about teams that made trades at the deadline not being that successful generally, as opposed to trades happening in January, where teams have time to get used to the new guys and really utilize them.
I'm sorry that some of you don't have the sense of humor (or class) to get this joke, but JR has the utmost respect for CHelios, and was in fact taking a dig at himself.
I've had nothing but great hockey conversations on these boards, and I still think they're some of the classiest, well spoken boards around. Some of you should take more pride in that and grow up a little.
As for the Sharks...yikes, we've really been stinking as of late... but seeing the passion, class and drive that ROenick gives, as well as seeing him score 500 ( I was there) is amazing. He adds so much to the Sharks it's unreal. Sadly nobody else seems to have that passion.
I still think the best "hockey songs" in no particular order are -Rock and Roll (pt 2) by Gary Glitter -Kiss Him (Goodbye) by Steam -The Hockey Song by Warren Zevon -Heavy by Collective Soul (I think it was used in an EA NHL game...2001?) -for some reason the BGSU ice arena always plays Ants Marching by DMB -The Launch by DJ Jean
dude...just... no. Nothing with "DJ" in the title.
I wanna Ride the Zamboni The Hockey Song Me Like Hockey (The Arrogant Worms) Runnin' Back To Saskatoon (Who Guess) Hockey - Jane Siberry Gordie And My Old Man - Grievous Angels The Ballad of Wendel Clark, Parts I and II - Rheostatics
THOSE are some hockey songs.
The Gary Glitter song is a great goal song though.
