#2420615 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 18 June 2013 - 03:18 PM

The one thing that really annoys me about the Toews talk, is everyone talking about "hard minutes" and "great defensive plays" Sure. But this is a Canadian golden boy, who gets talked about like he ALWAYS rises to the occasion when the pressures on. Oh yeah? That's why he was pretty much the 4th line center for the Hawks last night.


I did some digging into Toews splits from 2010, when according to the "brilliant" minds in the hockey world, he became a big game player. Well I describe big games as Stanley Cup Final games. So, including the 3 he's already played in this year and the 6 in 2010, lets see what we get.


2010: 6gp 0 Even Strength Goals, 1 Even Strength Assists. 0 PP or SH goals, 2 PP assists. 18 shots, and had an average TOI of 21:24. 2013: 3gp 0 Even Strength Goals, 0 Even Strength Assists. 0 PP or SH goals, 0 PP or SH assists. 12 shots and has an average of 27:02. Big game player? Not a chance. Datsyuk played hard minutes for years but was called a playoff choker for years because he didn't put up the numbers, and because he was Russian. Toews because of his passport gets a free pass. It's crap, and the hockey media should be ashamed. Call this guy "The Tent" when it comes to important games, because all he does is fold up and crumble.

#2419388 Bylsma and McLellan Extended

I don't understand Doug Wilson. He hasn't changed anything in, what, 5-6 years? They haven't won and they haven't really even come close. I don't consider getting to the Conference Finals two years in a row with a 1-8 record being close. I remember when there were supposed to be big changes when they were eliminated from the Ducks in '09 in the first round. They aren't going anywhere.


With the Pens, they have had better teams since '09 and they haven't really threatened. Granted, I think the only team in the East that could have beaten them last year was the Flyers and this year was the Bruins, but Bylsma's inability to adjust in a 7 game series is very telling. He is Erik Spoelstra of the Heat without the results...

Gotta say I feel sorry for the people that think a low scoring game is boring. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole game. I have to give Crosby kudos for his hustle when he had his lid removed. He almost ended the game all by himself.


Best non-Wings game I've seen in a long time.

Boston is like a walking zombie, terrorizing the NHL right now.  


Down two goals with a minute and a half left against the Leafs, they shouldn't even be alive right now.

Pascal Dupuis - Sidney Crosby = average second/third liner at best


How can you guys be so blinded by stats that you cant see that he isn't even very good?


This article pretty much sums up my feelings about pascal dupuis and his potential

That's the thing. Abby is the type of player we need up there, but he isn't the player we need. Does that make sense? We need his style of play, but in the form of a player who scores.

#2416489 Standing pat according to Malik

If they want to have a team that doesn't have to really overachieve in order to simply get into the playoffs then it's probably not a good idea to stand pat.

i knew the red wings were done after game 4. i just knew it.

way to blow a 3-1 series lead. i see nothing but disappointment for the red wings in the next 10 years. and nothing but dynasty for the penguins.



have fun golfing red wings! 




You've been reading my posts over the years, Ryan.  But you have to be more subtle.


Just say that Carey Price would have made that last save.

Good season, yada yada, it's clear this team needs offense. I should feel proud but I'm just annoyed they blew a 3-1 lead and become just another victim of the Hawks.




There's no reason Cory Emmerton should be getting all your good chances in a game 7.

Had a huge gig today playing bass with my band at a wine festival, so I'm glad to hear the boys kicked ass in the rink like we did on stage. Looking forward to Game 3. I'm going to enjoy watching the DVR of the game later.

They thought they had this in the bag lol.  They looked so confused leaving the ice.
Hey, Hawks?

They're not that drunk!!!!
