#2185829 Players Worth the Price of Admission

Sharapova's legs are worth the price of admission for me. :blush:


#2185822 SCF: Boston Bruins vs. Vancouver Canucks

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 June 2011 - 10:09 PM

Philly's won a Cup since '94? Besides, Philly's further south than that. :P


Wait, it was only since 94? Guess I didn't read that.

I guess prior to '94, only the original 6 teams and maybe a few others in America would already have a Cup. League has expanded a lot in the last several decades, that's for sure.

I wouldn't miss Stanley Cup celebrations live no matter which team won.

But yeah, you're right that Wings fans have seen the Cup before.


I'm just positively surprised that even though Canucks were the favourites whole year their fans aren't acting like ******* now when they lost.


Maybe they're gathering together for a riot, or are just in some horrible spell of denial.

Shrinks in Vancouver will make more money now.

It's great what Canuck fans are doing, sticking around, cheering their team, cheering Thomas, chanting: "Go Nuck Go" and "Stanley Cup, Stanley Cup". I remember in 2009 when Joe Louis was mostly empty while Pens celebrated.


Good.

That means we have higher expectations than these losers.

Besides, they've never seen the Cup before in their building.

So Vancouver was blown out 4 times in this series and 6 times total in the playoffs.

******* overrated chokers didn't deserve this Cup, especially against an undermanned Boston team.

Funny the Sedins guaranteed a win, yet they been on the ice for all 3 goals scored against.


Those overrated twinks aren't built for playoff hockey.

Their primadonna style is strictly for regular season fanciness. They don't play hard along the boards or compete for loose pucks consistently.

Just look at our eurotwins and compare the level of compete between those two pairs. Not even close.

The glow of car fires to commence in 20 mins.


If anybody here lives in Vancouver, and currently has a car parked on the street, I advise you to move it swiftly.

;)

Too old.

We did this last season with Madonna.

In all the game 7's in recent memory in the SCF, the team that scored first won.

First goal will be huge tonight.


#2185214 Scoring isn't really the Issue

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 June 2011 - 07:25 PM

I think we all agree that shotty defense was the reason we ultimately failed?


You could also say that our crappy powerplay in game 7 is why we ultimately failed.

I'm trying to figure out why Boston plays one way at home and the total opposite in Vancouver. Is it perhaps the time change? Being in the West, the Canucks are used to going in and out of time zones (like the Wings do) whereas the Bruins play all their games in the East and only go out west once or twice a season. Does this explain their lethargic play in Vancouver? I hope the Bruins win but it will likely be 1-0 Vancouver. Again. :ph34r:


Boston has played the same way all series.

The games in Boston have been blowouts because Vancouver hasn't shown up on the road. At home Vancouver has actually played hard.

At the end of the day, Vancouver has more talent then Boston, but without effort, it's only natural that they'd get blown out.

I don't think Boston has done anything differently at home than on the road.

I still think Vancouver will win game 7, and it's a shame because Luongo has played like s*** in these playoffs. Has any goalie ever looked worse at so many points in the playoffs and still won the Cup?

Overrated goalie who hasn't handled any kind of road pressure in this series and has been the recipient of numerous blowouts in the playoffs.

Lebron is probably watching Luongo and laughing his ass off right now.


#2183879 Latest Rumor: NHL Team Expected to Announce Rebranding in 2012

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 June 2011 - 10:07 PM

If this is true, please be the motherf***ing Ducks. Lame name, impossible to do anything that's a really cool logo, bleh colors. That team needs rebranding bigtime.

The problem is that most "anti-enforcers" who want "grit" don't see those as good points for replacing a player like Miller. (Who I'm certainly not going to scoff at for his abilities.) I get it. They aren't willing to see how Prust, Konopka, and McCormick fit in because they view them as poor penalty takers, savages, whatever... without viewing their upside...
Which I just don't get. Seriously. (With the exception of Konopka) McCormick and Prust average less than than a minor penalty per game.


Abby, Salei and Bertuzzi probably take more dumb penalties than any of those players.

Too much hypocrisy around here.

When we carried Downey, May or McCarty during the last few seasons, I don't remember too many posters here bitching about how useless those players were and how they were just taking up roster spots. Now everyone seems to think an enforcer has no business on this roster unless he can also score 20 points or so.

I'm confident that if Holland and company ever changed their long-term philosophy on this (which they never will), peeople here would have a totally different outlook on the "enforcer" role in hockey and whether it would be a good fit on this team.

Please let this happen! :thumbup:

Oh and the Florida Panthers have always had a cool logo and name. Why should they change the only good thing about their team?

How many games did Downey play in the 2008 playoffs? Same answer as yours.


Doesn't the regular season count?

Besides, McCarty played in the playoffs.
