A writer from Puck Daddy ripped him a new one for this. I like the caption he used on the title picture: "Pavel Datsyuk tries his darnedest to succeed despite his obvious shortcomings." It's actually a hilarious article; check it out:
I know this isn't the right section, but no one bothers to look in the Griffins sub-forum. Hopefully it can stay here for a bit.
Griffins close out the series against the Marlies with a 3 goal come from behind in the 3rd period. Within 5 minutes Griffins get goals from 3 different players winning the game 4-3.
Tatar notched himself 2 more this game, bringing his playoff total to 8 and 11 points overall in 11 games.
Griffins have been pretty impressive so far these playoffs. Should be some good experience for those that will be up with the Wings next season. As we have found young players really grow during playoffs when everything is on the line.
Did you see the Game 7 comeback by the Bruins the other night? Less than half the 3rd period was left, and they were down by 3, not two. They were playing like crap, looked like they had given up. But, they got their chit together, focused, and bounced back for the win. Why don't the Wings seem to have that kind of character?
Everyone says it was a Leafs collapse...I say it was an inexperienced team shellshocked by thef****** dragon the Bruins suddenly turned into with 9 minutes left in the game.
The Leafs let up and were in a feel good state before the game ended. The Bruins smelled it like a shark smells blood in the water and devoured them, then the Bruins ended the game.
I would love to see something truly amazing like this, maybe we will. But we sure as hell won't see that if we play without heart, guts, and drive. Some players on Boston woke up and then got everyone in on it -- they had the guts to believe they could still win and had the heart keep fighting.
