CHI v. LA and BOS v. PIT (and Van v. ...Beuller...anybody?)

Postby Mondi » Thu May 30, 2013 6:29 am

If there was ever a set of series that speaks to the fact that Vancouver isn't good enough and isnt' close, these are it.

We've gone out to three out of these four teams in recent memory, and been embarrased in the process. Nothing leads me to believe Pitt would be any different.

Does anyone find it odd that I've started to like LA, Chicago, and Boston? Not that I like the teams and the players, but I respect the heck out of guys who step up, as opposed to out, when the going gets tough. Guys who find another level come playoff team, at laest 2 out of every 3 seasons.

I can tell you one thing, re-signing plugs like Tom Sestito is not getting us any closer to being able to compete with the likes of these four teams. And, if these teams are evidence of one thing it is that you need 2 (or more) scoring lines.

The Kings added Richards and Carter to a scoring core of Kopitar, Brown and Willams. The Canucks should think about doign the same. Kesler needs a buddy, badly. And it ain't ol' Westboro Baptist Booth.

Edler for the next Jeff Carter, let's do it....right?!

Also, what great 2nd round series, and what great matchups. The second round renewed my hockey fandom as my taste for the Canucks soured. I realize once again, I love good hockey. As for the people complaining about the low scoring, or the refereeing? The refs are the refs, suck it up. Low scoring doesn't matter when it's amazing hockey. Enjoy it.

Can't wait for Saturday.

This is going to be a great time for a hockey fan. We get to see the best four teams in the NHL. Both of these series should go close to the distance. So much better than watching the Canucks bitch, bite, pull hair and dive.
Tell me how my ass tastes.

...I may watch some of the Pitt/Boston series.

The only team I would care to see win would be the Penguins. I would be concerned about their goaltending imploding however.

The rest can sniff my bum dust.

Yawn. I hope Pittsburgh takes it. Fuck the rest.

If Toronto had any spine, Boston would be sitting at home wondering why Tyler Seguin didn't step it up.

Toews has been brutal.

Dustin Brown has 4 points. Anze Kopitar is tied for goals with Burrows and Kesler. Big producers, that core.

Our biggest problem is we have nobody to spread the load off the Sedins, and our defence handles the puck like a grenade in our own zone.

What you ignore is that all the players you mentioned have rings, save the Canucks. And, more importantly, are still playing hockey in the third round.

Mondo is your face all squeezed up from sucking lemons too? You sound like one bitter mofo. The Canucks are cycling downward for the moment, they'll be back. Meanwhile there's like 2 dozen other teams watching as well.
I like an LA and Pitts final
All original expansion teams over original six.


Edit: If you wanna be bitter about why Vancouver wasn't in the original expansion you have my permission...

Just looking at that list, did anyone other than the litigious Burke win a Stanley cup as GM?

Go Bruins!
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
