#2293148 Has parity finally arrived?

Posted by Xitium on 20 April 2012 - 06:17 AM

The '08, '09, and '10 Cup champs are all down 3-1 in their series, as well as the '11 Game 7 losing Cup finalist.

In the east, every series is split at 2 except for the goal-fest that is the Pens and Flyers and thats a 4 vs a 5.

I can't help but think to get ahead now the GM has to get lucky and have someone out-perform their contract as well as have your stars perform to get any traction on the league.

Significant injuries and players who don't perform are just tremendous weights to bear now.

This isn't a specific commentary on the Wings, more of an observation on the league currently.

"They were crashing the crease. They were in the blue paint. They were bumping into him," Trotz said. "He doesn't really get fazed by that. That's something that's got to stop in our series here.

"You're seeing it all the time, there are guys in the blue paint. They aren't pushed there, they're just there."

Watching that makes me oh so glad that Cindy Lee is not a Red Wing. I never wished harm on someone, but damn the NHL was much better WITHOUT Crysby. Would someone just end his career already?

I'm sure someone will do it sooner or later.

Also, the blame lays at the refs feet for this game. Neal should have been giving 5 minutes and a match after the hit on Courtourier. Instead, he stays out there and almost decapitates Giroux on the next shift. Absolutely disgusting show by the officials. The league should be ashamed.

Wait. Anyone remember the most famous brawl in Wings history? Against the hated rivals of that time?

No suspension for Burrows.

I guess clear video footage from multiple angles doesn't constitute conclusive evidence anymore...
