#1997126 GDT Stanley Cup Finals - Game 6

Posted by Jaymz99 on 09 June 2010 - 10:15 PM

Is it just me, or was that the most anti climatic cup win in history?! No one is sure it went in, play goes under review, looking back while attempting to celebrate just in case it wasn't a goal. Very odd end to the finals, like a bad ending to an otherwise great movie. Kudos to Scotty Bowman and son.

Says something about you when you post here as well.

Burn. You got me. I stand corrected. :P

Says the man who rushed to stick a Lightning logo next to a picture of Stevie Y. Says something about you too, so lets not throw stones too hard.

The point is, he was a rookie. Not every rookie comes out of the gate blazing. They pitched him after half a season and he really didn't give him a chance. This is like when Howard played one game last season and everyone s*** on him after the game even though it was a complete lack of defense that cost them the game. Leino played during the worst part of the worst season in 20 years. He got the short end of the stick. Plain and simple.

At least you apparently gained a new sport in American bashing. :thumbup:

I am American. I just get lit up at the fact that we destroy things that are good. Why not welcome the sponsors on the jerseys. You know, have an easton logo, Gatorade, bengay, McDonald's, valvoline (zamboni oil), Toyota, etc. We already have the arenas named for millions. Makes perfect sense to go to an arena named after a bank. After all, you are just giving them your money right. How soon until Preparation H Arena or the Tampax Centre. When is enough enough is my point. Some people/things you just don't want to be in the mix. The league is attracting some bad apples and it is hurting it for the "fan that has been watching his whole life." I would love to see a Gordie Howe or Steve Yzerman Arena (or Joe Louis II for that matter) but I know it will be some company that slaps its name above the new home of the Red Wings that has nothing to do with the game. I cannot be the only one on this board that feels like that "fan". If I am, then it is far worse than I thought.

Plus, I just like getting people revved up on these boards.

Really guys? Seriously.

More power to him for doing good in Philly right now, I'm happy for him, but HE DID BARELY ANYTHING HERE, henceforth trading him. I don't regret trading him whatsoever since HE BARELY DID ANYTHING HERE.

I'm glad he's excelling so far in Philadelphia and am happy for him, but at the pace he was contributing with the Wings, or lack thereof is a better term, he probably wouldn't have even been playing in the playoffs.

Blaming Holland for this is beyond stupid when Leino BARELY DID ANYTHING HERE.

And Stevie Wonder could've scored that goal in the open net last night, so keep your pants on for pete's sake.

Surprisingly, the Wings organization can make mistakes, and I believe this is one of them. But then again, I have stuck up for Leino since the beginning. I have watched him for years now in GR and he was by far one of the most promising. His stick handling was at times as good as Pavel. He created scoring opportunities and opened holes in the defense. He didn't do anything here because they didn't know how to use him. I believe he was the sacrificial lamb to the Wings s***ty year. They threw him out there unprotected and he got clobbered every shift. Philly has him up several pounds and he is now running guys on the ice. Big difference. This one will be regretted in the long run. He was one of the most promising guys in GR and we gave him up for Ole-Nothing and a 5th round pick. I can only hope that the next Zetterberg comes from that 5th round pick.

Holland and Babcock messed up with Leino. He could have been great here. Philly put some weight on him and gave him a chance, and all we have to show for it is Ole and a 5th round pick. Let's hope we get something out of the pick at least.

#1990907 Winter Classic set for 2011

And one more thing! If I were one of the many teams waiting for my turn in the Winter Classic (listen up New York), I would get together an old fashioned lynchin' staring your NHL poster boys Ovirated and Cindy Crybaby together and make sure they "couldn't make it" to the WC. Something along the lines of Nancy Kerrigan. You need knees to skate, right?!

In all fairness, Washington hasn't been there yet. But this is just to wreck Bettman's wet dream like the Habs did in the playoffs. Thank you Habs.

F#@K the NHL. F#@K Bettman. I am going back to only watching minor league hockey. This has gotten way out of hand. AHL/ECHL here I come. Yzerman to the f#@king Bolts, Pens in another WC within 3 years time, Wings raise ticket prices by $10 a seat this year, just waiting on Satan to buy a Snuggie because it has had to freeze at this point.
