I live near Vancouver and this whining about the refs is sof****** annoying. It's all their team and fans do. They always brings up the Marchand punching Sedin incident and most of the fans are convinced that he didn't even get a penalty. He got two and ten with 1:30 left in the game. How much more should he have received? THe biggest problem is that it comes from the top with the coach and GM doing a lot of the complaining. The other things they always go on about is the officiating in the finals, but if you look at the penalties the Canucks had much more power play time and got away with a lot of stuff. Burrows got away with a bite that would normally be two games, and the next game he scored both goals including the ot winner.
Gotta find a way to sniff out two points in this one. This could be a potential playoff match up for the first time in ten years, which is awkward considering how good both these teams were for the past decade.
Datsyuk and Flip will give it their best as usual, if Franzen and Z could do the same, we will win this one.
Since I live near the Vancouver area, we have to sit through those douches on Sportsnet Pacific talking trash about other teams and sucking up to the Sedin sisters.
One particular idiot said Datsyuk didn't even belong as a top 5 ASG draft pick, butf****** Stamkos does.
Let me guess, was it John Garret who beaked Datsyuk?
I'll be making the trip over from Victoria, pretty pumped.
No, they're free on iTunes. It's under marek vs wyshynski. Very entertaining podcast, Marek has an encyclopaedic knowledge of hockey and is full of crazy obscure hockey stories as well.
That Babcock Datsyuk story for people who don;t wanna download it was before team canada announced they're olympic roster. Dats was on the bus listening to tunes and Babs came over and asked to talk to him for a minute. He asked who was harder to play against Bouwmeester or Seabrook. Dats then said "f*** off Mike" and put his headphones back on. Marek heard that one from Brad May.
On the CBC Elliot Friedman said it was basically a done deal that it's coming to Detroit next year, all thats left is to decide which stadium. The thing that's got me the most excited is HBO 24/7 following the Wings if they do get the classic.
