Is anyone else as pumped as I am today? I mean, seriously pumped? A lot of good games the last two days and now...finally...it's our turn! Anybody see that St. Louis win last night. How can you not love playoff hockey? Tonight can't come fast enough.
Don't know about the others but I'am. Bring the Bruins.
If Jimmy plays par to last years playoff appearance we can pull the upset. Let's GO Wings !
Hard to choose with a season with so many injuries and so many players that played for the team. Gustavsson was a good backup when healty. stood tall when he needed to. Without him we wouldn't be in the playoff. But beeing a good backup doesn't qualify one as MVP, if the goalie then this honour would belong to Howie. And Howie was to inconsitent for that imho. Nyquist was great obviously but it's the same as with Gustavsson : Without him we wouldn't have made it but he also didn't play enough for my taste. Wiht Z out for equal reasons that leaves only Kronwall and Alfredsson. Hard to decide but (Spoiler Alert) I'm going along with Nev here. Kronwall never was spectacular like Nyquist and he also had a few outright bad games. But despite that he manged to pile up piont after piont . You could almost say the same about Alfie but what impresses me more about Kronner is that while he constantly scored he was also usually our strongest D-man by far. And that's why Kronner is the MVP.
Phaneuf just awful again tonight, -3, captain of the team, makes a lot more money than Kronwall.
Just wanted to toss that little fact out there.
He was. Not only in numbers, he was also on the ice on Helms shorthander which might be one of the worst defensive plays I ever saw. It's their D that is the problem, not their goalie. Sounds familiar somehow.....
