Congratulations Anaheim DUCKS!

Congrats to the Anaheim Ducks and their fans for winning the 2007 Stanley Cup championship. Sorry Canada, it’s not coming home yet again for at least another year.

It was a great series as far as officiating, goals, physical play, and skill. Congrats to Chris Pronger and Selanne for winning it their first time ever. Congrats to GM Brian Burke who took this team and turned it into a winner in just two years.

It’s been a great season and another great season here on HockeyTradeRumors.com. You, the members, rock and we’ll continue speculation excitement in about two weeks with the Entry Draft.

Congrats all, CHEERS!

    phillips and volchenkov didnt more good than bad…….that shut down crosby for the most part and also the egg line….for the most part :p

    the reason i say the most part is cuz the ducks checking line was FAR more dominant

    I honestly don't know what's embarassing about that. We also have the Penguins you know, and no one makes fun of them.

  4. I_hate_LA says:

    Thanks for the congrats, but……..PLEASE! Could we end this already?

    Pronger won the cup, so what?! I think he deserves it because of a wonderful career he had so lets just not mention anything anymore or talk about his family. In addition to that, who in the hell would want to cheat on someone as hot as his wife?

    Please don't be offended, but…I'd bang that chic any day of the week mam haha 😉

  5. I_hate_LA says:

    I hope so too :(

    Guys…guys…let's all try to be friends heh :) Peace and harmony for everyone!

    My post was actually in response to JuicemaN…

    Leafs fans bring the Leafs into every fricking article. I'm just a lone soldier trying to do the same. I think at last you may realize how much people hate (most) Leafs fans. Imagine if there were 50 of me on here, and if most of them were more obnoxious than me… then you might get some idea of what it feels like for the rest of it… almost….

    what bashing of other teams do I do? I mock the Canucks, cause I'm from here and have heard ''This is the Year'' for the past 13 years. I mock ANY team when their fans make simply incredulous outrageous comments that demand my immediate knowledge and attention.

    'riding the coattails'…  ??

    I write more relevant stuff about each post than almost anyone else on here, excepting maybe Glucker and JuicemaN. Above I made the statement about Count Chocula and Niedermayer with the Cup. You pick and choose to biasly for me to respect you. Try responding to the majority of my good posts, rather than dwell on the few propaganda ones I throw in occasionally.

  8. BruMagnus says:

    Actually I'm done with you. I forgot who I was dealing with. You never contribute anything to this site. All you do is bash people.

    I've found but two posts on this thread from you, and they were anti-Penguins BS that was irrelevant.

    You contribute nothing, and I'm done with you until you write something worthwile responding too.

  9. BruMagnus says:

    Why don't you tell the loser who thinks Edmonton will win the Cup to STFU? You biased loser. You're pathetic.

  10. BruMagnus says:

    80% of the Captains in the League are not Canadian.

    40 of 42 Conn Smythe winners have been Canadian.

    It's a Canadian game that only Canadians TRULY excel at and are determined and have the desire to win at. Although I do love how emotional Selanne got.

    Niedermayer or Alf… easy choice.

  11. BruMagnus says:

    Alf did not deserve it. It takes four rounds, the Finals being the most important, to win it.

    Both times Pronger was out, Nieds stepped up and led his team to victory. That is why he is a 4-time Champion and Conn Smythe winner.

    Why? Because you are obviously more of a loser than anyone on this site.  All u do is repeat the same garbage here on every single article on HTR.  I haven't contributed anything? How so, how many more ways can i congradulate or discuss the ducks winning this division that hasn't been said already?  I bash you because you annoy the shit out of everyone on this site with your pompus attitude.  Even if i add up all the "leaf" fans that you mention, they dont even add up to the idiocy that you posses. There may be a few Leaf fans who are living in the clouds, but I think the majority of them are rational and able to have a meaningful debate or conversation with.You on the other hand just tend to not give a shit about what anyone says and force your opinion on others.  If they dont agree with you, you call them stupid and then shove that penguin propoganda shit down their throat. You keep on saying that the Canucks say "this is our year" for 13 years straight.  Sorry, your wrong and full of shit.  Sorry to say this to you, but if we are such bandwagoners, then how can we say this is our year when we have had losing seasons for at least half of those years if not more?  A majority of the fans would have left a long time ago.  And even if they did say that shit, what do you care about.  You catagorize a small minority and make every canuck fan look bad just because you had a bad experience. Seriously, your arguements are weak, just like your clinging to a team thats suddenly getting strong after tanking their seasons for 5 years.  Way to build a championship.  Where were you when the penguins got owned for 5 years straight?  Am i saying its wrong to support your team? No. But you like to get into peoples faces and force your opinion on them, and that is why i give u no respect whatsoever.  If anyone is the pathetic on here, IT'S YOU.  There is a reason noone is backing up any of your arguements on here.  Maybe if you grew some balls instead of ratting out to admins when someone replys to your inane comments, people would have some respect for you.  Time to get your tongue off of Crosby's balls and grow some of your own.
    Ps. I hope your done with me, and with eveyrone else on this site.  At least then i dont have to filter threw every article and read about all this crap when it has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

    While I do agree that Bru is very agressive in his opinions and enjoys bash the leafs a little too much and sure he does talk about Crosby too much – but I have found a common ground with him I disagree with him all the time and he respects my opinion because he knows for the most part I'm one of the more realistic Leaf fans.

    Leaf fans are very annoying, I'm a leaf fan and even I can't stand them most of the time…there are far more (on this site) dillusional leaf fans than there are realistic ones. And I can understand why sometimes he would lose himself on them.

    However; there have been times where the tiniest thing has been said about the leafs and he jumps all over it…I call him out every time he does it saying "that wasn't nessesary"

    Also with him submitting complaints about archion…I agree that it was nessesary; I did it the week before for all his biggatory comments about Canada vs USA….sometimes you have to do stuff like that to clean up HTR because there are some complete idiots on this board that just cluster up the message board.

    Anyway, Bru knows his stuff and is always willing to comment like a normal person if the preceeding comments are normal, if someone is an idiot then he does it right back.

    So I agree with some of your points but I would hardly say he's pathetic, he's one of the posters on this site that I find more insightful and actually logical.

    My two cents….

  15. JuicemaN says:

    I'm just showing him his maturity right back.

  16. Penssuck says:

    Flyers are my team.  So i have to say the Pens suck.

    But really, tell me why they don't suck?  When the flyers start playing like a team and not a bunch of tools, Crosby isn't beating Thorton for the Art Ross.

    Was it like something like 30 pts against the flyers or what not? 

  17. Penssuck says:

    Gotta love how archion gets banned for making a gay comment, but its ok for everyone else to say anything.

  18. JuicemaN says:

    You don't have to say Pens suck, I'm a leaf fan and I don't say Sens or Habs suck.

    No offense, but that whole "I have to hate the team closest to me" crap is immature and often makes many intelligent sports fans look like idiots. It makes no sense and only makes you look as bad as the Pens fans who say "Flyers suck".

    As of right now the pens don't suck because they have 5 of the best 30 hockey players in the league: Crosby, Malkin, Staal (will be one of the best) Fluery and Whitney.   If you had the exact team Pittsburgh has but they were all playing for Philledelphia you wouldn't say "tell me why the flyerz don't suck?" because you'd think they were the best thing since sliced bread.  No matter what kind of team pittsburgh has you'll still say they suck….just like idiot leaf fans, idiot sens fans and idiot Habs fans will say about each other….no matter if it's an entire team of crosby's they'll still say it….and that's why it's immature and makes people look so dumb.

    As a Leaf fan I'm supposed to hate the Flyers…and while I don't like them (no particular reason I have just never liked Bobby Clark and perhaps that will change in time now that he's no longer the GM), but I don't prance around saying "flyers suck flyers suck" like a 10 year old runnig around the school playground.

    No offense, I'm actually not directing this at you at all, but directing it at everyone that does what I've talked about above.

    As for Crosby's 30 points against philly….I dount it was that much if it was even 15 points…but still a point is a point and you can't not award him the trophy because he got so many points against a bad team.  Every Eastern team had the chance to play Philly and rack up their points and he was the best at it…which makes him the best (not to mention he scored the most against pretty much every team).  Thornton (as much as I like him) got to play both LA and Phoenix 8 times each….he had his chance to rack up his points too, but he didn't turn it on until the second half of the season.  Crosby had to face NY teams and New Jersey…that division was just as difficult as San Jose's division.

    I don't understand what it is that people have against Crosby, he's 19…of course he's going to whine, what were you like when you were 19?  I'm sure you were no Joe Sakic.

    When the Flyers do get better, Crosby will be better as well…give the kid some credit.

    Anyone think they got what it takes to be a GM?

    Then come to EliteGM NHL Sim League

    You will be taken into consideration upon application. Spots going fast!

  20. Radio says:

    Pens should do well. Not cup final well tho. What tools will they have this year that would prevent Ottawa from thrashing them again? Nothing.

    Then again, one regular season injury and things could start going the way of the basement.

    Soon, but not yet.

  21. BruMagnus says:

    Your question should have asked, "What WILL you be like when you're 19?" because if he's over that age now there's no hope for him.

  22. BruMagnus says:

    5 years ago I was cheering Dick Tarnstrom on as the Pens scoring leader. I just wasn't stupid enough to say our team was good or boast about their poorness. But I still watched, and sighed, alongside with them.

  23. BruMagnus says:

    Why thank you (not the least of all for proving many of "praying's" comments incorrect). The feeling is clearly mutual.

    And you'll have noticed I've reduced the amount of 'unnecessary' anti-leafs bashing.

  24. BruMagnus says:

    I just realized that Penssuck IS archion!!
    Penssuck appeared but a few days AFTER Archion113 was banned. His posts to date have been mostly totally anti-Pens, ESPECIALLY whenever I (who he knows fabricated, with JuicemaN's initial attempt, his banning) make a post, especially involving the Pens, and especially involving Crosby!

    Let's Keep TWO eyes on this guy…

  25. masarume says:

    So instead of making any constructive comments or CORRECT statistic or forming ANY type of arguements you tell me to shut up.

    I honestly didn't care who won the Cup this year. I jsut wanted to see some good hockey and didn't b/c Emery was terrible.

    I don't have a bias against any team.

    Alffy was probably one of few Sens that showed up.
    Please read my post before shooting off.

  26. Visco says:

    Actually a player has the right to do whatever he wants.  It doesn't mean he will get it, but his right to speak cannot be taken away.  If Edmonton wanted Pronger all they had to do was not trade him.  He wanted a trade and they followed through.  He didn't leave Edmonton and they have the right to demand whatever they want.  Just because demands are laid down, doesn't mean the team has to follow through.  You just said yourself that it is a legal contract.  Get your facts straight.
