Mantha will be fine. He had to work through a lot to come into pro hockey for the first time, both being a kid and having had a broken leg. Despite that he had a solid season. Because of the hype, expectations for him were far to high. He'll come into next season knowing what to expect and be ready to kick some ass.

Orpik better be suspended. Not that I think it was that bad, but it was no different than Kronwall's.

Green with consecutive penalties :39 apart. In a Game 7 ...and yet we're clamoring for him here in Detroit.
Live in NYC would love to continue rooting for a "home team" vs. think Trotz (Ovi? Whatevs.) deserves to get a cup. ...cue some Natalie Imbruglia.

 

Green won't be a Wing regardless come July 1. And I am glad for that. He will get a ridiculous contract elsewhere.

Here as in the u.s.?
I was under the impression that they were higher in Canada, but honestly with that amount of money, I don't know how much he'd owe...
It was a statement in an article I saw, I'll try to find it.

 

Canada. The tax rates in Canada are pathetic. The tax brackets for higher wages are absolutely insane, hence why when I graduate with my engineering degree I wanna move down south. Sur every country has its problems, but I don't want to end up in a situation where I am paying out nearly half my salary in taxes. It's horses***.

They'll just delusionally say they would of beat us

f*** the bolts man


Going for the caps/nyr winner ... Looks bad for ny right now if they lose but with the king in nets that's the one team I could see coming back down 3-1 along with Chicago

 

They can think what they want. Sure they made the second round, but the Wings have been more impressive these playoffs than the Habs by far. They almost chocked against the Sens for god sakes.

Ahahahahaha. Suck it Habs. The only part that hurts is it should have been us.

I think what might have hurt Babs more last year was didn't Pitt have more total man games lost ? So that one little stat is 2nd most man games lost due to injury instead of top?

 

True, but the Pens also still had some of their best players around all year to carry the burden. The Wings had un-experienced kids carrying the load almost all season. 

 

babs is prettygud

The weiss and mule contract especially with his cuncussion now really hurts ... 9 mill wasted

 

Mule's contract doesn't count towards the cap while he is on injured reserve. His contract does not hurt the team what so ever if he cant play.

To be honest, I didn't think any player was truly that bad these playoffs. Just nobody was truly great, or stepped it up as a hero

 

Agreed. The kids showed a lot of improvement over last year, and I do believe next year they will take it even further. This year they learned how to win in the playoffs. Next year they must learn how to deal with finishing blow in a series. Against Boston they were overwhelmed. This year the started off the same way, but begun to fight back, and fight for space. I thought the kids got better as the series went. With a deeper blueline we'd still be playing right now.

The Jack Adams trophy is probably one of the most biased and subjective awards in the league. I wouldn't read too much into it. NHL is known to pick favorites for its awards. There's been times where I've wondered why the hell Datsyuk didn't win the Hart Trophy in 2009. Don't get me started. 

 

If the Jack Adams was legit, Babs would win it almost every season. But when it comes down to it, the Jack Adams should be re-branded "Most Improved Team Award"

i dont know how i feel about this series, i'm still angry we lost to tampa, but ive always hated the habs with a passion  :confused:

 

I know what you mean. For me, even though they won, I have no reason to hate the Bolts. The Yzerman thing sure helps their case. I absolutely hate the Habs. The only bummer is that it won't be the Wings to knock them out.
