I don't know how many more times it can be stated that it's all due to NBC's scheduling, the NHL's desire to get on their games on national TV, and whatever events might be going on at the respective arenas.
This commercial is not only the most retarded thing I've ever seen, but it's an insult to the Red Wings organization, which had to put up with this idiot Leino who had "NO DRIVE" this season because of his laziness. Leino's drive my ass.
And no I don't care if the Finnish posters here lower my rep because of this post.
See, I don't know if I take it as a diss towards the Wings. In my opinion it's kind of like saying, "What if Leino hadn't gotten his s*** together?" There's no denying the guy didn't have the drive to do anything but quit on plays and get flattened while he was here. If he didn't have the drive once he was traded to Philly he'd be in the AHL right now.
I have a hard time believing the 'Hawks wont win, but either way - I'm rooting for them. It's not like they went through us to get there. They're an exciting young team with a lot of talent and Chicago has suffered through a lot of garbage seasons. I know a lot of people hate them as our rivals, but it's been so long since they were relevant to us that I don't have that rivalry hate. Plus, it's not like they went through us to get there.
Oh, and there is no one in the league I hate more than Pronger. So there's that.
Much in the same way that people around here can't fathom rooting for the 'Hawks, I feel the same way about the Flyers. I like Danny Briere, but that's where it ends. They're the Flyers. And if that weren't bad enough, they add Pronger. Effin' a.
Good points. A lot will depend on goalies and injuries too.
I understand this statement may be considered a treasonable offense, but I also wonder if the Wings could beat the Hawks right now. OF COURSE I want to think they could.
Gawd. If only...
I'm with you. This Hawks team is absolutely rolling at this point, I don't know that the Wings would've been able to take them down. I enjoy watching the Hawks play, so it's nice to not have to see them play at the expense of the good guys.
