Frustrating but expected. The Babs v. Holland on XO surprises me. I'm generally annoyed at the "overripe" theory still winning. I think it's outdated. Give these kids their shot. Nyquist and Tatarwere in GR last year and now we're counting on them to carry the load this season!
Tatar did not play one single second in the AHL last year.
Yeah, no kidding. They did talk about us a bunch after the Hawks won the Cup. If you weren't a hockey fan and just turned it on at the end, you would've thought they beat the Wings to win the Cup.
It doesn't sting for me in the least. We were an inexperience 7th seed that barely made the playoffs. I wasn't expecting us to even take it that far. Plus, our young guys ended up getting a nice Calder Cup championship out of it.
Sorry man but I respectfully and wholeheartedly disagree. A Calder Cup championship in no way makes up for the fact that our franchise had three chances to put away the team that eventually hoisted. That is choke/heartbreak/salt in wound all over the place.
How the hell is Kane the MVP? Crawford or Bickell should've gotten it.
I think that Chicago will do what they need to to retain him, but why people wouldn't want Bickell wearing a Detroit sweater is beyond me.
I really hope they resign him, but don't want him to turn into another Flip where his 'upside' is always being waited on. $2.5 sounds like a bit much. Can he really command more than that in the FA market?
I am definitely part of the population that is nervous for this game. Hawks haven't lost three in a row all year but the Wings are playing their best hockey all year. Going to be a great game and I will be cheering as loud as ever. LGW!
