Crosby is better than Malkin and I don't even see this as an argument. Not taking anything away from Malkin, but Crosby is the best guy in the league.

Even though the Pens won tonight they did not capitalize on all of their good scoring chances, which is something you can't do if you want to win a series against a team like them. We'll see how the rest of the series plays out though

Sad news in the hockey world as one of my favourite prospects has passed away. Luc Bourdon of the Vancouver Canucks died in a motorcycle accident, I am really frickin' choked. It's crazy because he was playing in Winnipeg this year and I got to see him play a ton and he really became one of my favourite players. He was 21 .

RIP. Luc, all thoughts are with his family on this one.

It kind of puts everything in perspective in a hurry.

I'll never forget him dominating at the 05 world juniors in ND. He was a freakin' tank. The Canucks took a lot of hate for drafting him before Kopitar, but the dude had so much heart and potential that he was a sure fire first pairing d-man.

Blaaaaaah. Feel like crap now.

It's especially said that he is so young. He obviously would have had a bright/successful future ahead of him.

My husband loved his motorbike, until he got t-boned by someone in a car, thrown off the bike and 30 feet through the air, landed in a ditch unable to feel his legs, hit his head so hard his helmet cracked right down the middle, shredded 1 arm of his leather etc. Fortunately he wasn't paralyzed but his hand was broken in several places and it' s still a little wonky.

I guess you could look at it like the kid died doing something he loved.

So who do you think takes Conn Smythe this year?

I should throw up a poll.

Zetterberg
Datsuyk
Franzen
Lidstrom
Osgood
Fleury
Malkin
Crosby
Gonchar

Since it usually almost always goes to the netminder, I could see them giving it to Osgood. He has just played soo freakin well for them despite the fact that he hasn't faced as many as shots as the other goalies have. The ones he did stop were clutch and he has back to back shutouts.

Fleury on the other hand has the most wins in least games played. Faces alot of shots and makes some brilliant saves. He's young and is learning to deal with pressure and the last games will prove his worth to hold the MVP trophy.

What'd yall think?

I really don't like the "let's give it to the goaltender" cop out. Unless it's someone playing Martin Brodeuresque every night, this decision should never be to just give it to a goalie.

Eric Staal should've got it for the Hurricanes, not Cam Ward. The year before Brad Richards had won it with less points, while Khabi had better numbers across the board on than Ward. I guess that's one of the benefits of having your team go 34-0-1 that year when you score a goal...

If Osgood gets it, I'd yack. Guy doesn't face sh*t, although I'll give it to him that he remains composed after not seeing shots for 10 minute time periods. It's hard to ignore Zetterberg. The proof is there that when his line gets Crosby, the Crosby line gets shut down. I think that will change though if Hossa continues to control the puck (you're 6'2" 220 - stick out your a$$ and get between the defenseman and the puck like you've done all season and in game 3). Babcock is full of it to say he doesn't match the Zetterberg line up with Crosby's when they have the final change at home. Datsyuk is just as good, if not better, defensively, creates on every possession (the Pens should consider themselves lucky he still has 0 pts in the finals), and has began to throw his body around. If Detroit wins I give it to whoever has more points - Zetterberg or Datsyuk.

It's a shame Gonchar will never get it, because he is playing so well. I wouldn't give it to Lidstrom because he has Rafalski and Kronwall who are playing out of their minds.

If the Pens win - I say give it to Crosby. The kid is the hype, and it really sucks that most outside of Pit refuse to recognize all that he does with an ego even less than mine after a home run in company softball. It would be great to hear conspiracy theories after he got the cup and award. If MAF continues to stand on his head, he's a hard candiate to beat. After all, the Red Wings have been the better team for three games, and have won two...
