#2677583 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 13 June 2016 - 07:29 AM

Lol.

 

Let it sink in folks. Those of you that cheered for Pittsburgh. Sidney Crosby beat Lidstrom, and went back to the finals before Datsyuk/Z and insult to injury also won the Conn Smythe. 

 

Yuck. 

 

Crosby has a much different personality now than he did then.  No more whining or sucker punches (although him and Thornton went at it pretty good).  No more acting like a petulant child.  He's not perfect, but he's light years ahead of where he was when he played us, in terms of maturity, which is one of the reasons I was okay with them winning it this year.  

 

16 Pens = 08 Wings 

 

While the Sharks were getting good pressure on the Pens last night, I noticed that a lot of their offensive pressure was a result of good passing.  That's one way to get around relentless forechecking.  Pass that puck around and wear them out, they can't move as fast as a pass.  Then I thought, about the '08 Wings and how ridiculously well they could control and pass the puck around.  If the '08 Wings played the '16 Pens, it would still be a good series, but the Wings would take it.  The Pens wouldn't be able to do what they did throughout these playoffs against that Red Wings team or really any Red Wings team for that matter.

 

 

Hopefully Blash was watching these games. Speed kills, no more slow garbage clogging the lineup next year.

 

Hopefully everybody remembers this next year when they start complaining about how we have too many "soft players" and we need to get bigger.  Bigger equals slower.

 

Not sure if you're joking, but I think they're referencing the film Sudden Death.

Film?  Y-You mean... that wasn't... real??   :lol:

While we are putting teams in some of the hottest places in the US, why not try for Atlanta or Arizona while we're at it and see how hockey does in those kinds of markets. 

 

Oh wait..

Even though Detroit won the Cup, that game is still one of my biggest regrets as a sports fan.  Would have been nice if we could just let those 32 seconds pass without giving up a goal.  I screamed at the TV throughout those three overtimes.      

 

Yeah, I felt that series ending would have been better if they had just held on and won it at the Joe.  That Rafalski goal is one of my favorite goals ever, it would have been nice if it was the GWG.  Having said that though, it was special to me personally because a guy named Nick (which is also my name) picked up the Stanley Cup in Pittsburgh (my hometown) in the same season in which my son was born a half mile away from the arena.  Nick Lidstrom receiving the Stanley Cup a half mile away from where I received my son (who is a HUGE Wings fan now) into this world in the same season was a sweet irony.  So while clinching in Detroit would have been great, there was some good that came from winning it in Pittsburgh too.  :)

If anything, Kessel would be the player most likely to drop the Cup.

I'm willing to bet they are about to change that stat this year, despite my disliking. They have 2 shots at home ice and one away.

Annoyingly, they came to the show in the Finals. They are clicking and churning while the Sharks are not.

 

I shall retire from this debacle and skate some, with some luck It'll ease my mind.

 

On the bright side, there will be a new video of Crosby lifting the Cup.  Not just the one in JLA that I always turn away from.  


 

It's a shame, Tolliver was really on top of his game in that one too.

 

Luc Robitaille's breakaway buzzer beating goal at the end of regulation to force OT is something I'll never forget from that game.
