It's not like the Lakers and Celtics have ever played in the Finals before.
Dude espn always talks about how no one ever cares about hockey, yet they've overcovered the entire NBA playoffs like everyone cares about the NBA. I don't think that many people in this country care about the NBA.
Funny how espn sporstwriters (idiots) are always blabbing about how no one cares about hockey, especially with Crosby/Ovechkin not in the Finals. Yet they make it sound like everyone cares about their overhyped, overrated NBA playoffs.
You know of some better, more traditional way that a hockey player could send a message to an opposing hockey player about his behavior?
Pronger is oretty awesome at what he does. He is a troll on the ice, without a doubt. He's a great player and he's a **** to play against. He also makes hinmself available for ass-kicking to similarily-skilled opponents, but almost without exception they cower in fear. That's awesome, and that's how hockey players should be.
Yeah, get him to drop the gloves.
Or get expendable Ben Eager to jump Pronger's ass.
I would like to know who gave this a minus? Where has the HEART gone?? If it was switched up and Pronger was stealing a puck from Howard for god sakes I know someone would do something! (if not maybe Ill start cheering for the leafs...jk)
Probably those Hawks trolls who have been following me around all day.
I guess keeping the game puck is one of those unwritten rules of hockey, but like you and I said, the Hawks should have done something to Pronger in game 2 if they took exception to his keeping the game 1 puck.
Instead, they take it to the media. I actually wouldn't mind seeing someone punch Pronger in the face, but why talk about it and call him names? Just do something Hawks. For once will someone jump Pronger?
So . . . because Pronger spit on the indian head, we supposed to feel sympathy for the same fanbase that screams "Detroit Sucks" during the start of every home game? Color me unimpressed by your rationalizing. Pronger might be a jackass but he wasn't the only one in the building that night (ahem, Kane and Buff).
Pronger is acting like a dumb ass, but maybe that annoying song the Hawks always play just finally got to him.
And this place is starting to look like letsgohawks.com already. Sick of it!
I hate this whole damn matchup. Like Jersey and Colorado back in 2001.
I've got a news flash: The Wings will not win the Cup this year. Someone else will win it.
Since the Wings are no longer in the playoffs, it is not a matter of being a traitor to root for another team.
If the Wings were still in it and someone said, "Oh, what the heck, orange is just so darn festive. I'll go root for Philly." then I would call that person a traitor.
As it is, we are now picking through the leftovers. The buffet is empty except for some crusty tuna salad and some wilted lettuce. I'm going for the tuna salad. Just because you don't trust old tuna is no reason to say that your saggy leaf is superior.
We can pull for whomever we want at this point in the season.
I have my reasons; you have yours. See my sig.
Hey, I haven't cussed anyone out in this thread. I just questioned the sanity of some posters who root for the Hawks. That's not against forum rules last I checked.
Don't know how you can call me a kettle for responding to that poster.
Good to see I still have so many haters on this forum. I was beginning to get a little worried there.
