The fact of the matter is the game obviously means something to you. But you and your other Canucks friend still haven't acknowledged that these teams have played each other three times already this season. And even if Vancouver does win then it means they split the series with Detroit again this year. Yet this game somehow is the one that counts? You're right in that it's a matter of professional pride, just like it would be not to lose to Columbus. Because they're professional hockey players. They take professional pride in not losing hockey games.
So far you're staying true to form for a Canucks fan. Condescendingly telling fans of other teams the "truth" about hockey and being so self involved that you can't imagine your own view of the hockey world isn't fact. The general subtext of your posts is that Vancouver is so special of course this game means a lot to Detroit and its fans. The reality for the Wings fans I know, is it just isn't. The vancouver games have made for some really entertaining regular season hockey, but it's still just another regular season game in the stretch run.
I don't know if the Vancouver media somehow is playing this up to be a big deal or if it's your own creation, but it's getting comical. It's like in years past when the Blues would talk about the huge rivalry in Detroit, when to Wings fans it wasn't even in the top 5.
Was it bad of me to of seen the Nashville game had more importance than the Nucks game? I mean they are the Nucks..... But in all seriousness I really don't feel this is a big game. I like watching these 2 teams play each other because there is a lot of skill on the ice but In no way do I stop and say "man this one is a touchstone game, we have to win this one" Not sure that I have ever seen that with a nucks game in regular season play.
"Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game."
As a fellow shark, and hockey fan, I'd like to bid you a good luck to your next game. All I know is that your streak must end. It will eventually, I do not know if it would be by the sharks, but regardless, I shall take pleasure in it. Regardless of what team, you guys are setting yourselves for a great sigh. A long one.
Anyhow, win or lose, It'll be a hell of a game to watch.
If the sharks break your famous NHL record of yours.... oh lord, your will never heard the end of the sharkie fans.... lol.
With regards, and with great anticipation of tmw's game,
This writing style sort of reminds me of another person that posts on here. Pretty FISHY to me. Just plain STINKY.....Maybe I'll just go eat a TACO. ll
But But when the record was broke back then the planets were aligned in the right quadrant of planet x times the atmosphers lower pressure = the rate of netrons from the 5th star towards orion's belt. and That only happens once every 1000 years so there is no way the wings can tie the record. SO SUCK ON THAT WINGS FANS.
yea...that's how crazy it sounds to me.hahahaha WE WIN.
