#1997535 Toews: Most undeserving Conn Smyth winner in history?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 June 2010 - 11:31 AM

Niedermayer is the most undeserving winner in history.

He scored like 11 points in Anaheim's Cup run, and won the Smythe. And unlike say, Scott Stevens in 2000, Niedermayer could hardly be called a shut-down specialist in those playoffs.

Toews won by default. If Philly had won, Briere or Leino would have been the frontrunners, but who else for Chicago could have gotten it, despite Toews' s***ty Finals.

#1997206 Fire sale in Chicago?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 June 2010 - 10:37 PM

I was hoping the fire sale would occur without them winning the Cup first, and they'd have another 50 year drought.

Pronger should steal the Cup.

This has to be the worst Cup clinching goal celebration in NHL history.

Too bad it counted, because I'd love to see Kane looking like a dumb ass if it didn't.

Oh well, that's justice for you. Punch an old man in the face in the summer, and win the Cup the next season. <_< Nice one. :thumbdown:

I thought Ozzie had the worst 5-hole in hockey before I saw Leighton in this series.

Leighton should win the Conn Smythe, because he's the main reason Chicago won despite Niemi's crappy play.

Hossa own goal to end it.

That would be awesome.

A Dan Boyle like own goal at that. :lol:

I can't believe this was written on the front page of a major worldwide known newspaper. What a joke. <_<

This is the kind of stuff I'd expect an elementary school newspaper to print.

They need to grow up already in Chicago.

#1996347 Why Holmstrom

wow, a -42 and counting. Your plus/minus is worse than Rod Brind'Amour's

I could so totally beat that.

I've been saving this "Yzerman" thread up for years. It may be time to unleash it. :hehe:

Any chance that Kevin Lowe jumps in and offers Bert $5 million per year? :D

Well, he knows how to party, so he'll be a great fit over there.

#1995905 Adam Mair

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 June 2010 - 03:07 PM

We probably have a better chance of getting him than some of the other names people have been throwing around.

Namely because he's older, and doesn't fight that much anymore. Buffalo may think he's expendable, whereas guys like Clarkson or Nystrom are more likely to be re-signed, or to have multiple teams pursuing them.

Mair would not be the guy I'd be looking for to join us. There's better options out there, even though I think it'll be harder to land those other options.

The Flyers shouldn't have even been in this series! The way the Blackhawks are built this year, they should have totally dismantled this team in four. It's good to see a team like Philly, a true underdog hang in there like they are.

I have posted multiple times, prior to this series about my dislike for Philly. But in all honesty, I have found a great deal of respect for this team.

The Flyers actually have a good team on paper.

Two great scoring lines + Giroux, great checkers all around, and pretty solid top 4 defensemen.

They're weak in net, but Chicago hardly has a big name back there themselves.

I do think Chicago has a bit more scoring depth, but Philly has a pretty loaded team on paper, thus the series should be close, contrary to what you say.

#1995843 Would a real gritty fighter help or hurt this team?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 June 2010 - 12:58 PM

A tougher player can only rub off on the rest of the team.

It helps to have a guy that can energize the team with some big hits and can stand up for players when need be. You want your team to have all the dimensions and be well rounded.

I don't see how that player can hurt the team, unless he takes stupid penalties all the time. However, that depeneds on the particular player, so it's unfair to stereotype that against fighters in general.

As for offensive production, once again, that depends on the player. It doesn't hurt to have 4th liners that can score, but if they're soft and don't know how to check (Williams), then they don't help on the 4th line no matter how much they can score. 4th line is for energy and hitting first and foremost. Scoring is secondary when it comes to choosing a tough guy. We don't need our enforcer to play on the top line after all.

#1995597 Ville Leino Appreciation Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 June 2010 - 10:30 PM

3 more assists tonight, now has 19 pts in 18 games.

Imagine if he wasn't scratched for the first 4 playoff games.

I wonder if Mike Richards has been hanging out with Gina Lynn any time lately?

Guy has been useless the entire series, minus that soft goal in the last game.

Wow, I didn't know Mike Richards actually read these forums during the intermission. How exciting. :P
