#2307387 2012-2013 Odds of winning the Stanley Cup

Posted by edicius on 14 June 2012 - 01:44 PM

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.

2009: 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.

Wow, good move for Pittsburgh. I mean, if this was 2010.


#2304901 2012 SCF : Los Angeles Kings vs. New Jersey Devils

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).

Wow. Good on ya, Poile. Radulov is a selfish bastard (as I've said before, he's already said he's back to Russia after this postseason) and Kostitsyn is apparently a locker room cancer according to the Habs fans.


#2296663 Say what you will about Barry Trotz...

Posted by edicius on 24 April 2012 - 12:15 PM

From the DRW official Twitter feed:

Lidstrom confirmed that Barry Trotz said 'please don't retire' while in the handshake line following the NSH series.



Although, I suppose you could take that one of two ways:

  • Trotz believes Lids deserves a better sendoff than a 5-game first round loss
  • Trotz secretly thinks Lidstrom is declining fast and would be a detriment to the Wings and therefore, an asset to the Preds
I've always liked Trotz, so I'd like to think it's the former.

Only reason I'm continuing to watch this garbage is to see Nick off. That's IT. This team doesn't deserve my attention otherwise.

I think I'm actually more pissed at the Flyers right now than I am the Wings. <_<

Pens just scored.

That's a team that has a chance to come back in the series. They actually play with spirit, whether you hate them or not.

And the wonderful part of it is that Radulov has no intention of staying with Nashville after the playoffs. He's already said he's going back to Russia after the postseason.

I would like to see an open ice hit on Crysob. I'm an evil bastard and I'm drunk.
