I don't think a Cup seals the deal for him retiring. Pure love for the game and the ability to obviously still be a finalist, and possible winner of the Norris trophy proves he can just simply get it done. Nick is in tip-top shape and has the best overall shot from the point to this day. We will see but I don't think he is done for at least another 3 years or so.
I hate the Pitt announcers. The Pens doubled up Tampa on power plays (big surprise there ) and they were still bitching for more calls. Can't blame them though, the Pens usually do spend the majority of big games on the power play. Probably because they're so "good".
The more I watch all these games and other games around the league, the more I am mad that we chose Franzen instead of Hossa. Hossa is MUCH better on the D side, and he seems to be trying every single game I watch for the Hawks. Perhaps more significantly is the fact that Hossa has only played in 65 games and has 26 goals, meanwhile Franzen has played 76 games and has 28 goals. Also, Franzen plays lazy half the time, while Hossa is a factor even when he isn't scoring, though it is still impressive for him to almsot have 30 goals. I am just very disappointed with Franzen and think we should heave kept Hossa. Regardless, babs better take Fraznen off of Datsyuk's line.
Sorry, but, no they didn't. As much as I want to believe that the wings have officially "flipped the switch" I just don't believe it. The Wings might have put on a better effort, but the Pens I'm sure also dropped their level of play.
