He took a slapper off the hand and broke it about 6 weeks ago.

No, he probably won't play 'till the next series but the defense played great in front of Brian Boucher last night without Pronger.

Let me start off by saying that this thread makes me love this site even more!! Secondly even though they lost to Tampa, LETS GO PENS!!! Im not a fan of either the Flyers or Bruins for obvious reasons so I dont care who wins that series. My Finals prediction is Tampa Bay and Vancouver. Both teams are kicking ass right now and I dont think anyone is going to stomp them. I hope Tampa wins the whole thing but I wouldnt mind it if the Canucks won cause I have no problem seeing a different team win it.

05-07-2011, 05:06 PM
My Canucks are doing well but jman what's up with your Flyers?

You know Kev, when you're from Philly losses like that don't really hurt anymore. Flyers need to go out and get a bonafide #1 goalie though. I guess I need a new sig.......:(

Vancouver vs. San Jose is an awesome series so far.

I know season ending a few days ago but i'm very proud of what my Canucks did this season. Although we fell apart after game 3 we had 1 of the best seasons ever and damn near won it.

Canuck fans are some of the nicest people i've seen support any sports team (You should read the comments after a lose, damn near everyone still believe in the team even after a dreadful lose) and i'm very glad for the riots. Shows the fans are just as passionate as football fans.

Aye, I didn't expect that as well. I'm semi-hoping the Rangers and Bruins get hard competition in the play-offs but I would also like a Stanley Cup rematch of last year. With us destroying them this time :)

I'll settle for revenge on the Rangers though. Maybe us beating the Blues in the Western finals but still a long time to go before all those scenarios.

We have 4 players in the all-stars game which makes us the team with the most players.

I picked Louongo, Edler and Bieksa in defense and the Twins and Kesler.

Sad Kesler isn't in it again but his time should come around the next few years.

On January 12, 2012; Mike Cammalleri was traded back to the Calgary Flames along with the rights to Karri Ramo and a 5th round draft pick in 2012, for René Bourque, Patrick Holland, and a 2nd round draft pick in 2013.

Flames are stupidly on and off this year.

They played really well at the start of the season but now the only shot they have really of a play-off shot is if the Avalanche, Phoenix, Stars, Kings and Preds all have horrible streaks.

Possible but doubtful. Still. They're on a 3 games win streak so they're doing what they need to.


Looking more and more doubtful that Canucks will retain the Presidents trophy this year.
I really hate when teams have more than 2 or 3 games to play.

lost 5-1 to NYI, poor result but came back strong witha a win against the Coyotes 3-2! :)

Majorly sucks that you're both in the same division. Means 1 of you is going to finished lower than 3rd (probably 4th, but it means that team faces 5th in the playoffs)

Hoping you beat them then. Just can't seem to go on a good winning streak now :S

Been ages since Canucks had an early game

We're doing okay. We seem to be doing:

Something around that type of pattern. If we could stop the losing we'd be doing brill again.

Ducks and Kings we should beat.

Okay. Done the math.

Assuming every team wins the matches they have over the 'Nucks.

Canucks are 7th in the LEAGUE format (1st in division though which is the most important)

Fortunately, well for us, its mathmatically impossible for that to happen.

I'm doing the assumption that DRW and CBH are above us but we're tied on points and I think we have the better head-to-head record against them.
Also the St. Lou Blues are a team in there division so they will all face each other meaning someones dropping points.

Also Philly and NY Rangers are the others in the same division. Meaning the same they face each other too.

Leaving the Sharks and Bruins. Bruins will probably win the Presidents Trophy but I really hope not. We get the Sharks soon so hopefully we can stop them.

Definitely a mark out moment of the draft.

As much as it pains me to admit it; Chara has gained some respect from me after his performances against my beloved Flyers this year. Also, for taking Datsyuk first. He could have easily taken his Bruins teammates first, but took someone who has been overlooked so far. And he took Kimmo Timonen as his first defenceman pick! :)

I can't wait for the Skills competition later: Especially Weber v Chara at Hardest Shot competition, and the Breakaway challenge without Ovi.

Seems 4 teams are pushing away from the big crowd.

NY Rangers - I have started watching there highlights. Have to say. Don't see a team in Western who can take them on in the play-offs excluding Bruins.
Boston Bruins - [would compliment them, but I cannot stand them]
Detroit Red Wings - 50/50 with these guys. There away record is pretty shit for a top 3 team. But there home record is godly. Only Canucks and surprisingly the Ducks took them to a SO recently. Good to have home advantage but I don't think a great home record can win you lord stanley. Good team though regardless
Vancouver Canucks - After a really shitty start we're now doing what we should've been doing from the start. Whilst I don't see us winning the presidents trophy again. I can easily see us winning anyone in theplay-offs again (Oh hey Blackhawks...AGAIN)

VanHooliganX
02-20-2012, 11:50 PM
23rd is the Canucks vs DRW in Detriot.

I just watched the highlights of that game, but it seemed as though that the Sharks were very physical throughout the game. It seemed as though they were trying to create some momentum in the series. However after the Blues, and particularly Halak shut them down, they appear to go over the top. I think that no team (unless under mitigating circumstances) should fight after the game, win or lose; It is petty and serves no purpose. The commentators therefore got it wrong.

I agree with you about the fighting, my comment was worded wrong. what I mean was that the blues weren't at fault in that, both teams were. I saw numerous comments from people saying that the blues instigated it all and that it was "cheap", and the blues should act like they've "been there before".

i know the amount of stupidity is off the charts on sports websites and stuff, it just really annoyed me. hahah I usually tend to stay away from those sites for that same reason.

As a Pittsburgh'er...I am SO happy the Penguins are getting their ass kicked.

I love all my Pittsburgh teams. Steelers, Pirates, Hell...I like Pittsburgh Power down in Arena Football.

But I DON'T like the Penguins. First of all, I hate hockey. Secondly, I hate the fans. My school is full of more Penguin fans then Steeler fans, and that's just sick. It's even worse because the Penguins have the most bandwagons. That's because the majority of their fanbase was lost, and then when they started doing good again, everyone started coming. All those people that came are all bandwagoners.

I bet the same thing will happen with the Pirates in another decade.

I mean, they win, it's good for the city. I can't complain about that...but I still hate them, and I hate the fans. In 2007 they boo'd the Flyers because they lost in the Stanley Cup. They're just that arrogant. You didn't see the Steel City do that after Superbowl 2010. I just don't want them to win, because I want to see all these annoying bandwagons cry.

They're just that arrogant. You didn't see the Steel City do that after Superbowl 2010. I just don't want them to win, because I want to see all these annoying bandwagons cry. They're the same people who said Penguins suck 7 years ago.
sadly, bandwagons are wherever you go. here in southern Illinois, we root for the STl teams, as it's just a ten minute drive past the river.
last year during the cardinals amazing playoff run, EVERYONE was a baseball expert. now they're not even watching the games.
same with the blues. the blues have been bad for a number of years, and no one cared. this year with a new coach, young team, and new found success, everyone is a blues fan. these people love the fights more than the goals. it absolutely annoys the shit out of me.
same with the St Louis Rams..... actually nevermind they always suck.

I just had a feeling the Penguins were going to win last night, I didn't want them too, but you knew they weren't going to lose four in a row. There's no way in hell they're coming back though, they'll either lose this upcoming game, or the next one.

So the next group of games are as follows:

WEST
Kings (8) @ Blues (2)
Predators (4) @ Coyotes (3)

EAST
Capitals (7) @ Rangers (1)
Devils (6) @ Flyers (5)

I'm looking forward to the Western conference match-ups.

And I would have preferred to being playing the Panthers away, than the Devils with home ice advantage. I always get worried against the Devils. But hey, they can't be harder to play than the Penguins. I'm saying Flyers in 6 again.

Been thinking about how we lost to LAK. They ended up deserving it. Plus Bruins and Blackhawks fell in the same round so it's not as if either of them can brag.

Canucks won the Presidents Trophy again. So we've basically finished 2nd or 3rd (depending on your opinion of if winning the presidents trophy is bigger then winning the conference finals or not)

Every other team will finish with nothing but division championships and we won ours as well so I can't grumble at having our 2nd best ever season. We've done poop in the play-offs but a presidents trophy means we did end up having a pretty good season.

Especially if the Rangers and Blues don't win the Stanley Cup.


Since my GF is a big Coyotes fan I'll route for them although I feel the Preds will win that series. But the Flyers to win the Eastern since most Flyers fans I get on well with. Even on EWN.

Anyway. Weirdass play-offs this year.

I didn't get 1 match up wrong last year and this year nearly everyone I believe will win has gone in the opposite direction. A few I have gotten right but majority are surprises lol

Kings nearly beaten the Blues, PHX currently beating the Preds, Devils leading the Flyers and Rangers are still smelly lol

Ya know. You have to do a hell of a lot to make me despise a franchise and the fans. I mean a whole lot that makes me want to smash the faces of any fan I see in the streets.

Seems these days I hate anyone in NHL...

Blackhawks - Which is weird cause I don't mind any other Chicago based team. Your fans suck, your stadium sucks and the only good thing about them is that they play Blue Moon.
Bruins - They're cunts. I'd say I hate your fans but you don't have any real fans. Boston hasn't been an NHL place for decades...Until they win the cup like these days.
LA Kings - Unclassy bastards. Only beat us cause Lou was crap, got lucky against the Blues, and bullshitted the Yotes. Furthermore:
2571

I'm sorry but no fucking franchise in any sport should be that fucking unclassy. Even Chelsea and Milwall aren't that unclassy.

FUCKING MILLWALL!

Still a bit of a shitty system they're using to pick them. Putting players against each other. The teams more hated or franchises less liked have 0% chance of ever getting on their.

MJD got eliminated by an absolute idoit but the team was bigger than the Jags...

I agree that the voting system is flawed. For a moment I thought Rinne was going to beat Giroux to it, as many people hate the Flyers and/ or wanted a goalie on the cover. But surely if a goalie was going to win it should have been Lundqvist or Quick.

There should be a rule of no one should grace the NHL cover (or other EA games) more than once, and the same team should only be represented, say every 5 years or so. Furthermore there should be less contenders for the cover vote. I mean the likes of Tavares, Hartnell and Brian Campbell should never be the poster boys just yet.

Tort is a horrible coach.

Mike Gillis is an even worse GM. He had a double Pres trophy team that looked unstoppable a few seasons back and made them a joke. (Well, Canucks would be like 3rd or 4th in the other conference but that shows how uneven the conferences are.)

Nice four point California swing for the Flyers. Colorado and Calgary come to Philly before the Olympic break. Three or four points there, and we're in decent shape heading toward the stretch run.

First off im a sabres fan this year has sucked but things are looking up. Past two years ive watched my fav players go. Pominville, Regrer, Gerbe, Roy, etc. Last night with Miller being traded was the beginning of a new era.

First off we got numerous amount of picks in next two years. Secondly trade are that they are going after subban, Callahan, Kesler and even Kane ( from buffalo) but i do think in next two years you will see a different team just watch.
