In Topic: The NHL is a piece of crap

21 May 2007 - 10:55 AM

Not into conspiracy theories or believe that the NHL is trying to make certain teams win, at least not without more proof than just suspicions; but way too many games have been decided by the refs instead of the players in this playoff season. What do you expect when you put a greedy basketball lawyer in charge of the NHL.

True story; a guy who knew a little about hockey took a girl as a date, to a hockey game. It was her first time and they sat in a section full of hard-core season ticket holders. After the guy had been trying to explain the game, about halfway through the first period, the girl clapped her hands and yelled, "I get it, it's just like basketball." After that the game got pretty physical, with many big hits and a couple of fights. After every big hit or fight, more and more people in the section they were sitting in started shouting "it's just like basketball". The guy and his date left their seats between the second and third period and didn't return.

If Bettman is in charge of the NHL (no hitting league), much longer the girl will be right.

In Topic: WCF Game 4 GDT (5/17): Red Wings @ Ducks - 9 PM ET

Anaheim is a very good team, even without Pronger. If you look at the excellent pre-game stats though you see at a glance how important Pronger is. If the Wings don't take the Ducks lightly, and veteran team that they are, I don't Detroit will, the Wings will win. Ducks will come out in the first with a lot of fire, both because they are embarrassed about the last game and Duck's players will be trying to step up to make up for Pronger. If Wings can weather the storm, maybe take advantage of a Ducks mistake or two, the Wings will wear down the Ducks thinned-out defense and win going away by two or three goals.

This is good stuff. Have you seen the YouTube Wars between Buffalo and Ottowa?

YouTube some of Probert's old battles and it will make you wish he was still in prime fighting trim and suiting up for game 5.
Wouldn't that be fun to see him go toe to toe with Pronger goal.gif

Another great win by the Wings and another great shutout game by Hasek. Even after Detroit eliminated my Sharks, I was hoping the Wings would go on to the Cup, mainly because I didn't like the Ducks, but now I'm actually beginning to like this Wings team.

BTW I wonder if the league will have the guts to overrule the on-ice officials and suspend Pronger instead of Niedermayer? It looked to me after watching many replays that it was Pronger not Niedermayer that went for the head shot.
