In Topic: Well, the series has now been decided

08 May 2009 - 12:47 AM

Wait, I'm confused.

In another thread, some of the Red Wing fans are saying that the NHL doesn't want the Red Wings to win because Bettman wants to spread the Cup around and doesn't want the Red Wings to win it two years in a row. There are some other conspiracy theories as well as to why the NHL doesn't want the Red Wings to win.

Now in this thread, you fans are so excited because a Ducks player touched an octopus which will virtually guarantee victory in this series for the Red Wings.

Wow, I really feel sorry for Hossa, Lidstrom, et al, who are playing their butts off each night because obviously no one has told them that they absolutely have no control over the outcome of any of this. The outcome has already been decided and almost anyone could be put in their skates and it wouldn't make a bit of difference either way. Good thing they get lots of money for being the lucky fools chosen to be meaningless pawns.

And you all think Ducks fans don't know anything about hockey...

In Topic: Avery comments & suspension

Maybe Bettman got all upset because he's also dated some of Avery's ex-girlfriend's scared.gif scared.gif

No seriously, the NHL was just looking for any reason to suspend him. Do they really want a guy playing in the league who admitted that he used to beg his babysitters to bring over their dolls so he would have something to play with??

In Topic: Cup Goes Hollywood

Cuba Gooding Jnr is actually often at Kings games, not that that would give him any understanding of the Stanley Cup

Cuba Gooding was in the dressing room with the Ducks on the night they won the Stanley Cup so he's seen it up really, really close.
As for the Cup being in Hollywood, it was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno a night or two after the Ducks won, it was in Manhattan Beach already because that's where O'Donnell lives, etc. The Cup made it's way around Southern California last year so Chelios bringing it out here again is just pretty much a return trip.
