#2517253 ECSF : (4) Montreal Canadiens vs. (1) Boston Bruins

Posted by vladdy16 on 26 April 2014 - 05:30 PM

Well, Hockeytown sure didn't waste any time in coming up with this one.  Couldn't give us a few hours to adjust, could you?  :P

 

Still on the Habs bandwagon regardless.

You guys are awesome, but it's depressing none the less.  Yeah, I know, I know, we weren't going to take the series, but I really thought it would be a better series.

Next year my pledge will be different so I owe something, but I'll throw a little something into the hat anyway just out of gratitude for 23 straight years.

#2516463 ECQF - Game 5 - Red Wings at Bruins - 3:00 PM EST

Doesn't matter if someone is better.  That's not why teams make coaching changes.

 

The Ducks fired Babcock and won the Cup a few years later.  Does that mean he was a bad coach?  No.  But sometimes you have to make a change to freshen things up.  This team needs some kind of a change in its philosophy.  It won't just come with getting rid of old players (they're all scratched anyway) and calling up more kids from GR.  Something more is needed in the attitude of the organization.  The complacency and lack of accountability is not a good thing.

The Ducks didn't fire Babcock - he declined their offer to renew his contract to come here.

NHL Rhino has lost their login, so they have asked me to post their pledge on their behalf.

 

$1 for each goal from the following three players:

Franzen

Datsyuk

Tatar

I think I just have to give the French language equal time.. crap, it's supposed to be on top though.

 

EDIT! EDIT! EDIT!  No one will know.

No dog in this fight other than support for Stevie Y.

 

Go Bolts! Go Lightning!

 

Allez les boulons! Aller Lightning! (required by Canadian law)

If you're following Canadian law, then aren't you also required to root for the Canadian team?  I don't think even the Stevie Y defense will help you in a Quebec court.

The amount doesn't matter - every little bit helps and you'd be surprised how quickly all our donations together add up.  You'd also be surprised at how much more fun it makes the games.

 

Thanks so much to those of you who donate and those who support us, the Wings and Children's Hospital in spirit.




#2509578 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Firmly on #Lumbus bandwagon for this one as well.  

 

GO JACKETS

 

 

Yes, my unseen internet princess, I love your pretty face as I imagine it to look. ;)

 

But yeah - #Lumbus

Even if it wasn't real, the fact that I used it makes it real.

:P

#2509554 WCQF - Series F - Blues vs. Blackhawks

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 11:48 AM

If there's a "Should I drink hemlock or arsenic?" matchup, this is it.  Don't like either team, can't stand the fans of either team.  Kinda hoping for a black hole at the arena for this one.




#2509540 WCQF - Series H - San Jose versus Los Angeles

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 11:08 AM

Sorry, as a former SJS season ticket holder, I am SO over their fans and the Sharks in general.

 

GO KINGS




#2509538 ECQF - Series B - Tampa Bay versus Montreal

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 11:06 AM

I have a huge soft spot for Montreal.  I have no loyalty to Stevie within the game of hockey now that he's in our division.

Count another one on the Montreal bandwagon.

 

GO HABS




#2509534 WCQF - Series E - Colorado vs. Minnesota

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2014 - 11:04 AM

Don't care about either team really, so this is really going to boil down to I don't want to see any more of Crazy Patrick than I have to.

 

GO WILD

Now for the second favorite part of the season - Money on the Board.

 

For those who know how it works, pledge up!

 

For those that don't know how it works, each participant decides what they would like to pledge for the Wings run in the playoffs.  It could be 50 cents per goal, it could be 5 bucks per game won, it could be a penny for each hit; our members get very creative!  I just pledge a dollar amount per series win.  I'm boring.  You are responsible for keeping track of how much your donation is.  A lot of people keep track in their signatures.  It's a lot of fun.

Once there is no possible way to add money to the pot, everyone PayPals their donation to me and I send it on to Children's Hospital.  I then receive a very nice thank-you note, which I post here.

You can do a board search for previous Money on the Board threads to see how it all works and maybe get some pledging ideas.

 

Here's hoping we have TONS o' cash to send off to the kiddies this year.

 

 

GO WINGS!!

I didn't really look at the domain, just copied the link to post.  It's probably a little different because it's a special offer, so it has a subdomain.  The Wings post specials almost every Saturday.  If something looks particularly good, I post it for those that spend less time on the internet.
