2016 SCF

Post by Hockey Widow » Sun May 29, 2016 12:32 am

Starts Monday night.

SJS have been playing very good hockey. Jones has been great and they are relatively healthy.

But Sid the kid is back. Malkin in in full stride. MAF will be on the bench.

Two fast teams, two teams that score off thr rush or off the transition.

Pretty evenly matched with the heavy hitting edge going to the Sharks.

Pens and fatso Kessel in 7.
The only HW the Canucks need

This may explain the Pens success better then any of the other reasons. He's been hot and cold in the playoffs for awhile now.

I have never had a playoff where I was so wrong...

So no predictions from me for this, but yeah, I have an opinion... the media can feast on Thorton and Marleau for years about 'not having what it takes' and 'playoff chokes', but now those two are the darlings... Yet when it was the Sedins leading us through the playoffs, they hated us, and the twins.
So, fuck the media, fuck Thorton, fuck Marleau.
Go Pens.

Sorry, folks. I'm pullin for the Sharks.
San Jose deserves a shot at it for once and if you look at how important Brett Burns has been to them, well, isn't that the kind of D-man we've all been dreaming about? (younger of coarse).
Our rivalry with SJ has been a good healthy one and I have enjoyed it through out the years just like I have enjoyed the one with the Flames, (great game sevens).
But really, all anger is good because it just show, that on this board, we all, WANT THE DAMN CUP!! :mrgreen: :bang:

I hate Thornton, ergo, I hate the Sharks. I don't read the media claptrap, but with what m.c. Pilot says about them, I hate them even more........go pens......

I've pretty much called every series wrong this year...

Hate the Sharks, hate their damn beards and would rather see the Pens win yet another one if means we don't have to see that stupid 'chomp' thing their fans perform...

I predicted the Sharks to win and I will go with them again, not because I like them or any of their players but because I am not a bitter impatient whiny Canuck fan 'Hi' Bleeb :D

Plus I hate Kessel the ex-Laugh :evil:
I love every move Jim Benning makes 8-)

Not sure which narrative will receive more media gummers, Sidney Crosby's legacy or the Sharks getting their first cup. Probably gonna be a wash.

I don't mind the Sharks, except Couture... very punchable face on that one. Should be an entertaining series, at least. Nice to see some change from the past couple years of Kings/Blackhawks/Rangers/Lightening.

Sharks in 6.

As everyone knows, I've been pulling for the Pens all the way. :mex:

Every goal Kessel scores seems to drop that other first-rounder the Leaves have lower.

It's almost like Phil has found yet another way to piss on Leafers (don't ever forget Salutegate!)

Anyhoo, easy call, it won't even be close: PENS IN FIVE

Choke-o Joe will come up short once again...

Would you like to punch Sid in the face too? Those two look like they were separated at birth.
Try to focus on THIS year...
