Playoffs just started, so who's gonna win the Cup? I'm all for Pittsburgh!!!
Playoffs just started, so who's gonna win the Cup? I'm all for Pittsburgh!!!
How'd the Pens do tonight? I'd rather poke my eyes out with a hot poker than to see Crosby touch the cup again. Biggest cry baby, wussbag, pansy since mario and is the only NHL player i'd actually fight on the ice. I'll be pulling for who ever's playing pittsburgh...
..... i mean, go HABS...:lol
When was the last time the Habs won a cup?
I am not a big fan of Hockey but is Tx any good?
Go Avs! :) Penguins lost to the Senators 5-4 tonight. Texas didn't make the playoffs this year.
Hey, don't rub it in.... the Pens part.
The past two years they have lost their first game to continue to make the Cup.
Lets go FLYERS!!!!!!
HUGE Pens fan here. Naturally... being from Pittsburgh :) The loss to the senators was a frustrating one... we've still got plenty of room to come back! If the pens dont take it, I'd like to see the nucks or the sharks take it this year!
Whoo hoo!! At least someone knows REAL Hockey:lol!
Better hope Fleury plays 1000x better than game one or your going golfing soon.
Ya, last night was not one of his best.
The defense was terrible as well... He'll shine tomorrow :)
I support Luongo!
Lets all hope for a serious CROSBY injury so we don't have to see him play.....a hysterectomy perhaps?
Well you might as well start crying because we all know who is going to win tonight!!!
GO HABS GO !!!
Ok, so I am a Habs fan but don't really count on them winning a Stanley cup this year. I just hope everyone has fun. Kidding!! eheheh... GO HABS GO!!! :cheering
Ohh, I see where this is going! The Pens lose and every one is putting them down, but then they Win and nobody says anything. Fine be that way! Oh and, um....
whohoooo! Hahahaha! What now!!!
SHARKS, SHARKS, SHARKS
LET'S GO 'YOTES!
Danny Boyle--ummmm....yeah. Might want to fix that "passing".
GO AVS! :D
But, in keeping with the true PANSY-Penguin tradition of Lemieux, "Duck and cover" and "skate away from any rough stuff", he's done VERY well..... nice tradition.....
At least now I know why they sell NHL panties now after seeing him play, and who's buying them!!! :lol
Carcillo is a HAUS!!!!!!
OT winner - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeZbleqew6s
Hey we may not win all the time, but we sure will beat the snot out of you on our way out the door. Flyers hockey is old school gritty hockey, Pens is soft and finesse...........Basically nothing else to say.
As for Crosby, uh... you Must not watch him alot because the other day when "whats his name" on his team got decked cheaply Crosby was the first to go after the guy when the guy was like 6 in. taller.
Oh and PENS WIN AGAIN!!!!!!!
But, I like THIS one better:
I used to pray to the Hockey gods for a cup back in PHilly. But now I would REALLY prefer a serious, perhaps career ending injury of the dirtiest kind for Crosby, so I NEVER have to see her play again. Hear me O' Hockey gods....
"Old time hockey, Eddie Shore....."
You might want to read that, The Great One himself says that he has the best chance to break His scoring records.
Oh and I think this one is funnier:
As if I needed to backup my assertions for CROSBY's WHINING demeanor:
Even his peers don't respect him.
Here's afew more links for your PANSY BOY:
I LOVE PLAYOFF HOCKEY!!!
How many do you have?
Considering that I'm only 15 I don't think I'm even allowed to be in the NHL.:lol
Same videos everyone sends me. haha. You are like a clone of every flyers fan I ever meet. There are dozens of "divers" out there. Do you forget, Scott, that regardless of the lame excuses you try to come up with for Crosby being bad, he is one of the best players in the NHL right now? Pittsburgh LOVES Crosby, he is an amazing asset to the team...
Thats a video my old highschool did in support for our team. Find me other areas that show that much passion. The only way you support your team is by degrading others... in this case, one that is significantly better than yours ;).
I'm curious as to when the people who hate crosby are going to start feeling foolish as he continues to grow and improve.
A reminder incase you're hatred for Crosby has blinded you from the facts.
Here here, TehEl1te
Here in Vancouver, my friends and I always get together to watch playoff games (even though I'm not a huge hockey fan myself), and every one of the people I watch the game with really hate Crosby... but at least they can understand that he's an amazingly talented player, and does a hell of a lot for his team and the NHL as well, and you can't really argue with the numbers you've posted there ;)
The sheer extent that Lucky is going to do slam Crosby and everyone who supports him indicates more insecurity than anything else, really.
Go Canucks Go!
I'm glad you guys atleast know he is a talented hockey player... I'm not saying you have to like Crosby... but wishing harm on a player is kinda silly Scott. haha... If he "cries" so what... he plays hockey, and he plays it well. I know where Scott is coming from... I'd be upset too if the last time my team won a stanley cup was what, back in 75? The best I ever see come from the Flyers is antagonizing.
Nickpocalypse, if the Pens dont take the cup this year, Im rooting for the nucks! I am a huge Luongo fan :D
BTW Crosby just scored a beautiful goal. 3-0 Pens right now. Feels great!
C'mon, it's playoff time! Enjoy the banter!! :-) Been playing ice hockey for 20 years now, Maybe i'm old school, and it's me?? I prefer the harder nosed hockey over the finesse, and so do the majority of the guys of played with over the years. Just my opinion.....
FLYERS JUST BURRIED THE DEVILS. One step closer to PENS-FLYERS.
I prefer the hard hitting too. Ron Hextall is one of my fav goalies simply for his attitude. haha. He was so entertaining! I play hockey too man... its a blast.
We just stomped the Senators. I'd love to see the Pens and Flyers go at it.
Lets just drop the whole debate shall we? It's silly really.
Did anyone see Brodeur's amazing save tonight!? That was AWESOME!
Haha the nucks need all the support they can get, they're not looking to good in this series... dunno if you watched the game, but we had 6 guys to their 4 on the ice at the end and we couldn't even keep it in their zone :S:S:S
Ya, lets all be freinds, and I've been playing hockey for awhile and my coach calls me The Killer, cuz I deck guys all the time.
I actually served him and his family at my restaurant a few years back on xmas eve, was EPIC!.
I'm a goalie too tim. Do you still play?
Nope, I am retired unfortunately. I had 3 knee surgeries in 5 years because I kept blowing out my knee playing goalie so I said enough is enough and sold my gear. Now I am relegated to old man's beer leagues playing forward. Should of stuck with playing ice, never got hurt playing ice and all my knee injuries came from playing roller hockey because you can't slide side to side once you go down and lock your knees in the butterfly. I was a very active goalie and would be all over the place so I kept rolling over on my knee when it was in that locked position and pop, tore it all up. Couple other people landed on me when I was in the butterfly and ripped it up as well.
Darn!!! Pit just lost in 3rd OT.
PPPHHHHHIIIILLLYYY ONTO 2ND ROUND!!!!!! BRING IT ON
Thanks a ton Philly for knocking out the Devs!
Now we just gotta get rid of the Sens...
Tim, I have noticed a lot of strain on my knees as well playing deck hockey... I honestly don't enjoy goaltending on deck. I just got new pads for Christmas and I get to finally break them in a little once summer break rolls around.
You guys have the Coyotes to watch out for ;)
Shall I put in MY two cents worth to this hockey discussion? :D
This is Flyers hockey, all heart - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZHixpc_KoI
Little softer please lol, my little sister might have gotten that one.
History will be made - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SK3eu_5tFos
Pens got LUCKY, again. THAT game is an example of the league wanting crosby in the playoffs on TV at any cost.....
I live so close to Vancouver, but I'll never be a Canucks fan. Live by the rule where I cheer for the same team I grew up with. Only give a little when my Sens find their way to their respective golf greens. :( I guess I can be thankful that they've done well enough the previous few years.
But more than anything, I need to keep my eyes peeled for one of these jerseys! http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...nd-hockey-fans!
Pens take it! :) You guys can come up with all the excuses you want :D
Additionally, if the league can do something to keep a team in the playoffs, of course they'll keep Crosby in it; like him or not he's very popular and people love to watch him, and the entire National Hockey League runs on money, exists for the purpose of money and continues so people can make money. And Crosby makes the league a lot of money.
(I did one time have someone ask me if I liked the shoes that much. THERE'S SHOES?! :D Sometimes I love living in the south....if it's not Nascar or baseball, who cares?
Haha Nascar and Baseball, those are cute "sports" and I use that term sport loosely.
I used to play Baseball and man was it BORING!!!!!!! Entirely the most boring sport I have ever played.
Well since my beloved Senators crapped the bed, I'm all for Vancouver taking it. They were awesome all season long and I hope they have a good run. I don't have much faith in the Habs beating the Caps but if they do that would be pretty rad. Gary Bettman doesn't like Ovechkin as much as Crosby so the NHL won't keep Washington in the running (yes, I am a hockey conspiracy nut...)
It's amusing how people think leagues are rigged. Ever think the talent of the team has anything to do with it?
If this was the NBA then we would have conspiracy's , but since its not I doubt their is favoritism. Only bad calls against Philly, that's how its been since the Broad Street Bully days :/
The league isn't making calls to simply keep crosby in the playoffs... do you know how stupid that sounds? Did you see the goal they called back? Of course it wasn't a goal. We've had goals called back due to the same exact thing. Scott, I've never met a bandwagon hater as illogical as you are. Bias for Crosby? Maybe people like him because he is GOOD. Did you ever think of that? Did that cross your mind atleast once?
There is your precious Ovechkin. He is so cool.
Also, Tim... I was very impressed with Philly's triumph over the Devs... that took me by surprise. I'll be real curious to see what happens if the habs beat the caps!
I would love to see the Canadians oust the capitals. Ovechkin is a dirty player
Shouldn't of been to much of a surprise as we beat Jersey in the regular season series 5-1
On a side note, Philly injury bug strikes again, Ian Laperriere is done for the season, that slap shot that he took to his face caused a brain contusion :/
OF COURSE THE LEAGUE officiates in the playoffs to favor(and protect) their stars and popular teams, and NO it's not stupid. All leagues, ALL sports. They did it for Gretzky, Lemieux and now Crosby. Did you ever see the blown call against the flyers in the 1980(i believe) playoffs against the Isles?? The guy was 3 feet offsides, and 2 officials saw it. Neither made the call b/c of the Islanders Dynasty. Check it out....
I'm not a bandwagon hater, i'm a priviledged, sissy hater. This kids been HANDED everything since he was 15. That's the problem I have with him. As far as Ovechkin, he's not my favorite player, but he IS the best player in the world and I respect his overall game. To be honest, I think Malkin is a great player who is under rated on that team.
I don't question stats, or Crosby's offensive skill. There's no sense in denying that. BUT, I do question his heart and his toughness. He shy's away from contact. Defense is NOT his strong point, and i've even seen him cherry pick. BUSH LEAGUE. You know what i AM actually impressed with?? His improvement in faceoffs. He was terrible a few years ago, and now he's solid. I just don't like the kid, that's all. It's just my opinion, and I don't expect anyone to agree.
Malkin is a great player. I agree hardcore with that. I just personally don't care where Crosby came from, how he got there... he is a great player and thats what I like. It is a sport. These next few games will be interesting to watch to see who plays who next :)
I think the Flyers CAN beat the CAPS or Buffalo. But, With all the injuries thst the FLyers have suffered, I don't like their chances playing the PENS in the Conference(if they get there) finals now....
With how things have been going... honestly anything can happen. We were what, the 6th last year and came out with the cup? If the Habs beat the Caps... all hell is going to break loose. I love the playoffs, so unpredictable, makes it very exciting hockey! It's anyones cup!
Very true!! i just hope the pens or the wings dont win the cup, if they do, i shall be very...displeased. I'm rootin for the Bruins though!! :lol
HABS!!! LOVE IT!! Ovechkin fan, but ya gotta love the HABS fight. One step closer to my FLYERS-HABS conference finals??
Yeah!!! Caps are OUT!!!
Wow So Philly and Boston, this will be a great bruiser series.
PS: Glad im not the Pens facing Halak, the kids playing out of his fricking mind.
Should be glad the Flyers aren't facing the Pens ;)
Super pleased with the Canadiens! Way to go guys! Its what you get Ovechicken for snowing that poor little kid
Out of the 3 Habs, Pens, Bost. I would probable prefer the Pens as Halak and Rassk are the best goalies in the playoffs right now. Granted that was only the 1st round but Fluery looked anything but great in that last round and you saw what happened with Washington, amazing offense w/ garbage defense and subpar goaltending. Great offense will only take you so far, you have to have your goalie playing great and have solid D in the process to make it all the way, look at how Pens played last year, Fleury played amazing and carried his team in down the stretch, and in the pressure situation.
Now with that said were stuck with Boston, a team much like our own. Build around grit and power, but with much much better goaltending than we have right now. I love Bouch and all but he didn't have to steal any games last round and he made all the "expected" saves he was supposed to while he never had the game resting on his shoulders like Halak did in game 6&7. I think Boston won the season series between us 5-2 or 5-3 so this one will defiantly not be a cake walk like the last series.
No big deal to you. Ovechkin is a punk and you know it.
On other news, the Pens walked all over the Habs tonight! Go Pens!
Hes a punk because he snowed some kid? It was a joke, did you see the interview afterwards?? Anyways Halak looked like absolute garbage, they should of started Price tonight and given Halak an extra days rest. I best Price starts next game and gets yanked halfway through too.
As much as I'd like to see the Pens and Flyers go at it... I don't think it will happen. Lets hope the Flyers can prove me wrong :)
THAT was a tough game to watch. The FLy boys showed ALOT of heart to come all of the way back. But, the B's deserved to win it. Unless the Flyers can score the 1st goal in game 2, they're in trouble.
Montreal looked tired, and overmatched. I'd like to see them go at least 6 games.....
