as much as I admire Flyers run, it still pains me to think this retarded franchise wins a cup.
and I actually want Hossa to lift the cup finally. he's a great guy and I most certainly wish
him to win the grand prize at last.
it is a little bit pity, though, to see yet another "suck for a number of years and collect high picks"
team succeed and I'd like the league to reconsider draft lottery should the Blackhawks win this year.
I didn't like it for years, because it's artificial parity and plain and simply unfair to good GMs.
but now with (likely) 2 champs winning the cup thanks to years of sucking and having high picks - maybe
the NHL will finally realize this is not parity but giving unfair advantage to bad teams. because
it's not like the Penguins of 2004 or Blackhawks 2006 were so bad to finish at the bottom of the
standings. they did it very much on purpose. and that's unfair
I think making these kinda threads just shows that people are jealous. Just like the threads and stuff Blackhawks fans do about Red Wings.
then again... we all watched 2008 playoffs and saw Gary's TV pals doing wonders to sell Cindy as 3rd coming of Jesus Christ (Mario Lemieux being the 2nd - and it sure is a coincidence ) and pretend it's not like he got his ass handed...
I'm not jealous of Penguins but kinda disgusted how they're shoved into fans throats who believe Sindy Crosby came to rescue Canada and entire World from doom and gloom. it's not his nor Penguins fault but it sure does influence my perception of this team.
good team? definitely. deserved winner? likely. am I glad when they lose and Pierre's or Emricks need to eat their crow? always
