In Topic: 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Is this the game the Hawks PP shows up? The Bruins don't need Chicago to tie one hand behind its back... but with a lame power play that's kind of what they're doing.

You'd think with his laser eyes he wouldn't need a saw.

Dallas is confused... are they going with a youth movement or a senior tour?

Funny to me how much was made out of this. I don't see how much the Pens could improve by getting rid of Malkin.

Every team says this about every team they don't like.  You're no different.  You make it seem like there's some sort of scientific evidence to support this idea or something.  Wanna know what Chicago fans were saying after that goal was waved off in the waning seconds of game 7?  "Detroit gets special treatment from the league".  It's wrong, boring, and an obvious attempt to pander to the lowest common denominator.  I'd love to just ignore it, except that ever thread inevitably leads to this silly crap the second penalties, Penguins, Bettman, the league, diving, 2009, Crosby, or anything else gets brought up.  Which is fairly frequently when you consider this is a hockey forum. 

 

Sidney Crosby is the most marketable player in the NHL.  Deal with it.  BUT, the fact that Sidney Crosby is the most marketable player in the NHL in no way suggests that there's some sort of absurd conspiracy to make him win championships...particularly when you consider that Pittsburgh doesn't win all that many important games in the playoffs anyway.  So please, just stop already.  Beyond saying the same illogical thing over and over and over again, it's just boring, which is sorta worse when you consider this is supposed to be something we all do for fun. 

 

Well said. All teams have to deal with officiating that just doesn't make sense sometimes. Can we stop trying to move the narrative to the wacky and zany? maybe just confess when things aren't going the Wings' way?
