Thought you guys might like to see this--Osgood fighting Roy.

And Osgood scoring a goal:

Good luck in the Finals!

Well, Dallas simply got out-played pretty effectively in 4 games out of 6...and that is all it takes. We (Dallas) had some rookies who were able to step it up and play their hearts out to get us 2 games and keep us in, and our vets got another chance to prove they can still play, but when it comes down to the end, Detroit just had us--they had energy, but poise; just the right amount of physicality added to a clean, technical game. Impressive, Detroit, Impressive.
Now the hard part: who to cheer for in the Finals. I'm a die-hard Stars fan, so it kind of hurts to think of cheering for Detroit, but they have such a solid, solid team! And, I haven't been following the Pens much this season, so I don't know that I'm familiar enough with their play to claim them for the final series. I realize I'm not exactly in the right place for an unbiased comparison, but can anyone give me a goalie-defense-offensive breakdown of the teams.
Well, here it is: Go Detroit! *cringe smile.gif

In Topic: Dallas Columnist: Turco Better than Osgood

18 May 2008 - 10:59 AM

Turco is a GREAT goalie for many reasons. The Stars seem to have something for building power in the net. However, I have to agree that that writer was pretty rediculous. And that column was in no way good writing. It's hard to win a cup simply with luck. And even harder to do it multiple times. Osgood is also great and works very well with his team...as does Turco with the Stars. Truth is, if there were as clear a victor as the writer claimed, this series would have been over a long time ago. I for one, am hoping to see Dallas go on to the Finals--I've been a fan since I was 14. But I have to admit, other than Dallas, Detroit is one team I'd love to see battling for the cup! Look for me in the nosebleeds on Monday! biggrin.gif

Am I the only one who realizes that there's hardly anymore fighting in hockey as it is today. Since we're all still fans, I guess that means it has had a small effect. However, the league needs to get rid of the stupid instigator rule, because hockey doesn't have the edge that it used to. Maybe then we'll see more than 1 guy in the league crack the 200 PIM mark. Hockey with no fighting = football.

EXACTLY! I'd hate to see hockey become like all the other 'high-scoring', mind-numbing sports.
