Based on this game, without Pav this entire team is 3rd line at best...

What a difference missing the playmaking ability of Datsyuk makes...

How do you not call that penalty takedown on Helm? Objective refs? I don't think so.

With macdonald playing like this, why not just leave him in until he loses, or until Howard is 1oo%?

Especially when goalies are doing the fastest skater. Then you know it's a joke.

Uh yeah that was the worst ever idea.

I didn't watch the NBC feed just the CBC feed. I really hated how they switched up the fastest skater part again this year. Leave it as a single lap and please put the fastest people out on the ice.

I didn't like how they broke up the fastest skater either. Terrible. How can you classify that as a fastest skater? Is the fastest runner in track asked to run tires like in boot camp? Give me a break.

The fastest skater event should be exactly like they had it before. It should be a full out lap or even 2 laps...tonight the event was too choppy. Players didn't even have enough room to get to full speed.


#2250501 Bettman: 2013 ASG in Columbus

Bettman is clueless. Stop trying to force hockey down the throats of non hockey towns. What a waste. The league should be cutting 10 teams anyways and moving the good players to the rest of the teams. Talent is stretched and the NHL is not in a position to be this large.

That's right eddie...make it seem like an illegal goal. Would someone please take Eddie off the air? My god.

I'd still love to hear an explanation from Hack-Fratz as to why that was a PS and Seabrook's wasn't.

Much like the people I work with daily, there is no accountability with the referees. They aren't held to a standard. I honestly think refs just assume things and call penalties. They don't actually see it. The PS called last night is a key example. The ref was behind the play, sees the wings stick go horizontal and calls a hook and a PS.

It's ridiculous.

Last time we played s***cago we didn't even get a PP if i remember correctly.


#2178239 (1) Vancouver Canucks vs. (2) San Jose Sharks

Posted by Firehawk on 22 May 2011 - 04:56 PM

You guys have no idea how glad i was to see the canucks score 3 5 on 3 power play goals on San Jose in like a 2 minute span. I was laughing my ass off while reading the sharks forum on HF Boards.

Hmm, remember last year? Well, they got em all called agianst them in the same game at the same time. I just found it hilarious. I f***in hate the sharks, but would ultimately want to see Tampa Bay win the cup this year.

But i just don't think either team in the east has what it takes to beat either SJ or Van. The west is a level higher overall in my opinion.

The only way the league will get this diving nonsense out of the game is to start calling ONLY the diver and really start calling it frequently. They almost never call it, or take both players on the rare occasion they do call it.

What would an argument about diving between Nucks and Sharks fans look like?

I mean, that would be a mighty fine episode of hypocrisy.

It'd be an endless loop of arguing lol.

f***in hudler. If you're not going to shoot the puck then get out of thef****** lineup.

Wings look great thus far.

I love the way we are taking the game over. I just wished we woulda tied it in the 2nd. NOw San Jose has a chance to talk about it.

We gotta keep leaning on them. We'll tie it up if we keep playing like we just were.

I have no expectations for the Wings today. They came back from being down 3-0. That is incredible. I am happy they have a chance to make history.

But God I hope they pull this off. This is unbelievable. The wings aren't some rogue team either from out of nowhere doing this. They're a scary, intimidating team that has been seasoned for 20 years. If anyone can do it they can.

If they play hard and lose I'll still be proud of them. If they play like crap and get blown out I'll be upset, but they still battled their ass off to have this shot. I have a feeling they'll at least match San Jose all night.

I expect the game to be pretty evenly played. I'm not sure if I will be able to take the overtime if there is one. Ugh.

I hope the wings run away with this game because I want to hear the boos rain down on San Jose.
