We all know that there are 2 guarantees in life: death and taxes. I would like to add “hockey fans are insane” to that list.
I had the absolute pleasure and displeasure of sitting through the ECSF Game 2 against the Devils and Senators. I had seen a playoff overtime game before, also against Ottawa, and they lost (Game 6 2003 ECF).
The Province did a great article on what lies ahead for the Canucks. Suffice to say it does not look good.
The Ducks finished off Vancouver this evening in double over time. The game winning goal may be contreversial, its not often Luongo let’s in a long wrister from the blueline that isn’t tipped…..
I had three ideas for articles, but they all involved the Senators and Devils, so I decided just to post them all at once.
He has been without a doubt the best goalie of the new millenia and, by the end of his career, will probably go down as the best to ever strap on the pads and mask. But, has age finally started to wear upon Marty Brodeur?
By now you’ve all heard about the Shane Doan situation, but here’s some other stuff to consider.
Really simple. Do you think that Daniel Briere’s wrap around attempt crossed the line with less than 14 seconds left in the 3rd period of Game 4 against the Rangers?
So playoffs are almost finished and everyones favourite time is coming, July 1st. This year should be very excited as many times have alot of mula to spend and there is a big list of great players available. Heres a list if big name free agents and where they could possibly land this offseason. For the record i want to say in the finals i believe it will be New Jersey and Anahiem, Anahiem taking Lords Stanley home.
Note: For Each Player I Will Not Put Their Teams That Would Like To Resign Them, What Fun Is That?
The Hockey News selected Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins for its two most prestigious individual awards – as the NHL’s Best Player and MVP – in its recent awards issue.
The international hockey publication also honored the Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin as the Best First-Year Player and Michel Therrien as the Best Coach in the 2006-07 season. The Hockey News named Crosby to the NHL’s first all-star team at center.
The Calder Trophey, given to the leagues top rookie, would probably be best described as a three man race at this point ( Although 4 candidates stick out in my mind ). The 4 are Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins… Paul Statsney, Colorado Avalanche… Jordan Staal, Pittsburgh Penguins… and Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles Kings.
It has been the most debated topic in Leaf Nation since the end of the lockout. Does Mats Sundin fit into the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs? The simple answer is no. The aim of a hockey team is to win, and we won’t win under Mats Sundin.
