Do people honestly think Stamkos will sign with Detroit? If so, what the hell for? He's basically from Toronto which, if folks take off their homer glasses, is on the rise. The Leafs have a great coach and lots of high picks in their future. Another option would be Buffalo. It's not terribly far from Toronto and is also on the rise. All Detroit can offer is similar proximity to Toronto and, aside from Larkin, a bunch of middling prospects and picks.
This run is all based on luck and to top it all off they get to play the worst playoff team in the history of the league in the final, SJ best two centers are Couture 2nd liner and Pavelski who's just a solid two way guy with a good one timer on a team with skilled passers I'd say his stats are inflated he plays with joe friggin Thornton ovi would score 70-85 on that sharks team
The Sharks are simply too beat up they had to beat LA NASHVILLE AND the BLUES the three biggest teams in the league probably they have nothing left to give they never had a chance to keep up with this team
he hasn't utilized Stamkos skill set since he got there and it shows.. Not one fifty goal season for a guy who couldn't stop scoring before coop came yeah I'd say it's his fault, now that wouldn't have been so glaring if his team was healthy because the series likely never even would've reached a game 7.
I'm not saying he utilized stamkos properly. I'm saying the playoffs had nothing to do with how stamkos was played. Since he didn't play
I don't think we lose anything either because we get Maple Leafs 3rd round pick next season if we don't get it this season..?
Ya we get it next year for sure. No 3re round pick for us this year, via the zidlicky trade. Guy was selected in the third round, and we get him with our worse third round pick after he's had two 40+ goal seasons since being drafted. I'd say we win this deal big-time
I actually think Fleury has been good in the playoffs other than 2 years....which were dreadful. With them going back to Murray, I wonder what that does to Fleury's confidence? Game 5 of the conference finals was a tough spot to be starting your first game in a couple months, so perhaps they discussed this and whether they stuck with it or not wasn't a big deal as he needs to shake off the rust. On the Murray side, perhaps they thought he just needed a break as he never started that many games in a row before + high pressure games. I also don't think it was just 1 bad game, he wasn't great for a few in a row.
I think they are in trouble now...obviously being down 3-2, but it's never good to have a question mark in goal at this time of year. They'd probably argue the issue is deciding between 2 very capable goalies, which is probably true, but the whole mess they've made of it can't be a confidence booster.
I think what you mean to say is that fleury has ONLY been good in two playoffs. Other than that his numbers range from 2.40-4.63 gaa and .875-.915 sv%
Just put the flowerpower woodstock 4 ever .... on ignore it's not worth the time arguing or even acknowleding them :-)
I thought the joke was hilarious and laughed out loud, so keep em coming.
Anyhow not even a peition signed by 20 million people would change the name now, it's set in stone now it sucks and it doesn't honor the rich tradition of this franchise and it's players. The non lightning effect to me is even worse because this thing would have been the first arena worldwide which had something like that.
An arena with no history but tons of bill-board ideas great times.
Lol you know it's bad when the biggest bigot on the site is encouraging you and telling that your jokes are funny.
Its called a joke. Maybe you people, and by people I mean anyone that's offended by anything should prolly not be on the Internet.
I can take a joke. Pretty much everything I do and say is either sarcasm or a joke. But there's certain things that just go too far. I'm not even remotely close to being the PC police, but certain "jokes" shouldn't be made.
Main list includes, but is not limited to;
Rape, abuse, special needs people and mocking people's children. I don't even mind some light racism against my nationality.
