If Vancouver can get their PP working it allows them to play great hockey frustrate other teams and not get drawn into bash 'em up goon hockey. When this is happening there is no team in the league that can touch them.

Go Canucks!

The canucks dont have so many tough guys though, well I am no expert at all but they seem to be greatly lacking in that area and when you play a team like the goonsit makes things tough...

3-2 for the canucks though, lets hope they score more.. and 3 minutes on the powerplay left

Can't believe I forgot to set the PVR!! Only caught the last 7 mins, the highlights showed the game to be full of intrigue and suspense. I love games like that. The Canucks aren't saying much publicly but you know they're thrilled with that victory.

boston seem to be going very well, I dont watch them though, but I see they beat jersey shore 6-1 and then bashed calgary 9-0... :S after seeing the game today I would bet on boston to be beat the canucks over 7 games even though the canucks have some great skills and talents.. Luckily for the canucks they can only meet in the final though....


wasn't there a hockey thread once upon a time? :S
 
It's pretty unlikely that both teams will survive the grueling shedule ... not have injuries ... and both still make it to the final. The NHL is a bit of a lottery that way and i think it's how the owners and the league like it.

Vancouver will win the Cup in the next 2 or 3 years ... they have a great squad and they are due. :)

There was a Stanley Cup thread but not a general NHL thread as I remember

there definently is a hockey thread :S it is the thread I post all my fantasy hockey woes in and there are a lot of them(bloody crosby, I also picked iginla in the first round :S)

I hope you are right, to me the canucks look like a good team but a bit soft so I am not sure if they will ever win it but lets wait and see :cool:

Marchand got five games for that stunt. Shanahan sent a stronger message than I thought. Shanahan's explanation for the suspension makes it pretty clear that the league thought this was a predatory act, not a case of self-defence. I wonder if Marchand would even think of pulling that stunt if he didn't have Chara, Thornton, Lucic, McQuaid, et al on his team.


Mods, this thread is probably best merged into the hockey thread as the game is over but there is still stuff to discuss.

Didn't see this one coming:

All the talk of relocation revolves around the Coyotes but could it be that the Devils are the next team to move?
Bettman would pull out all the stops before allowing a team to leave that market. The league would own the team if they had to. But it looks like that is a long shot, seems like the owner has cash flow problems but it doesn't (yet) look serious enough to threaten the franchise.

Today, the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins were honoured at the White House and playoff MVP Tim Thomas declined the invitation. He says it wasn't political while stating rationale for his non-attendance based on politics. I think this is a shoddy move. The Head of State of your team's nation invites you to a celebration of your victory, and you snub him. A poor way to represent your organization.

EDIT: Funny note, he's the only American on the team. Ha!

What an idiot. An event like that has nothing to do with politics until morons like him decide to turn it into something political.

aha kovalchuk is finally on great form again, probably wont last but he's been scoring a lot this week, another goal and assist so far v the penguins.. lets hope for my fantasy team he scores more


and just now great play whilst the devils are short handed and he gets the assist, looked like a bit of a rough play by him though :S
