So the two best teams are about to faceoff..

Detroit in 5 or 6.

I am pretty choked that the next 5 months of my mouth will be without hockey. Oh well, draft day, unrestricted free agency and the off season trades usually keep me interested.



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA

I just upgraded my TV package just to get VS. What am I gonna do after the Cup Playoffs? Maybe they'll let me go back down to basic after a month...At least WEC is on.

I am not looking forward to free agency because I KNOW some ace clown is going to throw big money after Hossa, and I'll shed a tear watching him leave. He's been one of my favorite players in the NHL for a few years now, and it was like a dream seeing him wear a Pens jersey. If he stays, I'll get his jersey, and I only wear jerseys on the ice.

That being said, tell me I'm not the only one on this forum (well at least this thread) that has seen how great Hossa is defensively - the guy backchecks like no other. He made one bad pass at center ice yesterday (first I've seen him do all playoffs) and smashed his stick like he had just cost the Pens the cup, lol.

The Red Wings are a scary matchup. I'm not even looking at Zetterberg or Datsyuk (they are awesome - top 10 players at least) or Franzen (if he plays). I'm worried about their defensemen. Watch the Flyers and you'll see just how crucial it is to have quality puck-moving defensemen in your lineup to minimize space between the opposing teams' forwards (which is CRUCIAL against a team with speed like the Penguins), collect the puck when it is dumps, and make crisp passes coming out of the zone to instigate transition attack. Lidstrom, Rafalski, and now this bastard (jk) Kronwall are crazy good at all three, not to mention Kronwall knows how to lay dudes out!

Anyway, I think the Pens team D will prevail, Fleury will out-duel Osgood, and the Pens stars will come through big time. Pens in 6!

I will be sad to see Hossa leave(if he does). But I've read interviews with him saying that he isn't worried about the big bucks, rather than the chance to get to play with a contending team. Looks like he has found that team already, so I have high hopes that he will stay. BTW...I just got my hands on an autographed puck from him as well as Fluery.

My prediction went to Sh!t...

Would you happen to have that interview? That sounds like I don't believe you, but I just really want to read it. What if he wins the Cup this year? Maybe that would be his realization, "I have achieved the ulitmate goal and have proved that I am a playoff-tested performer...now show me the money!"

Seriously though, I'm not sure if you guys check out other hockey forums or hockey write-ups, or even comment sections of articles, but there were soooo many people out there saying how Hossa couldn't cut it in the playoffs. It's like, c'mon guys, it's Marion friggin Hossa...shutup and watch.

I remember hearing that Hossa has been talking about how he wants 7-8 million minimum, but if he stayed for less that would be huge. But, my Canucks are gonna be looking for a sniper to play with the Sedins, and they do have 20 million in capspace. They better offer Malkin something huge or maybe they'll make the offer.

I see Lidstrom, Rafalski and Kronvall being the end of Crosby. I think Detroits defence is huge, let alone there third line which has Draper and Maltby. Goaltending could be the difference, and it'd be nice to see Fleury win the big one but I will be going with the guy that has already one the big one.

This is the way Dallas should be playing but it may already be too late.

This game is awesome soo far, the first 6 minutes went without a whistle (Y)

EDIT: Thank you Dallas!!

Pens D is playing equally as impressive as Detroits. On paper Detroit's D looks better but both have played equally impressive in the playoffs.

What is with this team? They bust their ass' for 3 games straight then decide that they don't need to play as hard on the last one? This is the same shit they pulled in game 4 against the Rangers, penalty after penalty and absolutely not heart shown. Goddamn, they remind me of a bunch of jocks.

If I was Therien I would destroy them at the next practise, teach them how not to take penalties and to show some goddamn hustle.

If they want to have a chance at beating Detroit they better shape up and get some numbers outta these superstars and stop leaving the plays in the hands of guys like Stall and Scuderi.

for Pittsburgh.

Man I'm pissed.
