Center Ice would especially be a ripoff as a Wings fan this season. Out of 48 games, 13 are nationally televised (meaning either NBC, NBCS or NHL Network), which means Center Ice won't carry them. Not worth it.
I actually saw someone on Twitter (might have been Jesse Spector) saying the Penguins' first round was synonymous with Boston's epic fail the year before they won the Cup, basically saying that Pittsburgh would have a good shot to win the Cup next season.
Meanwhile, all I see is that the Penguins have gotten progressively worse each year since winning the Cup.
2010: Lost in the 2nd round surrendering a 3-2 series lead to Montreal
2011: Lost in the 1st round surrendering a 3-1 series lead to Tampa Bay
2012: Lost in the 1st round (losing the first 3 games) giving up more goals in one round than the eventual Stanley Cup Champs would give up in four.
Yet all these bloggers continually drink the Kool-Aid and insist that Fleury is an elite goaltender. He's not.
Question: If the Devs win this series and their 4th Stanley Cup, do you see them as equal with the Wings in terms of dominance for the past 15-20 years?
Nope. Wings win 4 Cups in 11 years. Devils would be 4 in 17. Also consider that the Devils actually missed the playoffs twice during that span (once being the season immediately following their first Cup).
