Colorado is easily the worst team in the playoffs.  They're getting run like Toronto would've been run.

 

Can't argue that right now. Things do look different now than they did after the first two games, but my point was I didn't think the Avs were all that good at that moment when people were being wowed by their young stars, I thought Minny was the only team that they had a chance to beat. But even that seems like a long shot right now.

 

No one should be impressed by anything in that series.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Not really, but it ties in to the fact that she's interviewed him after all his OT GWGs. 

I don't get it though. Why ask that question then? If she knows that he's scored 4 OT winners, why ask that question when you gotta know it'll make you sound like an incompetent idiot? If you want him to talk about his other GWGs, just ask how this one felt compared to the rest. Then he's gotta at least say, "well, the winner in the finals in 2010 is obviously the most memorable, but they all felt pretty good".

Ughh joe micheletti is hands down the hardest color guy to listen to in the league. I understand the rangers pay him to be a homer, but he is just making viewers less intelligent when he speaks. St louis takes a terrible dive, he doesnt say a word, moore crosschecks giroux as hard as possible and he says that he sold it.

I don't think the Avs are all that bad.. They're just young. Really young. And their kids aren't performing well under pressure when the games really start to matter.

Calling them the Leafs of the West is a little harsh

Also, Backes is a freakin warrior

I thought Keith Jones or Eddie Olcyk was doing play by play.I was going to say I'm surprised the guy can talk with a bunch of Rangers dicks in his mouth

Toews ends it in OT- Chicago wins 3-2. That series won't make it back to St. Louis.

Look who comes back to just quote me. Just shocking with your obsession.

 

Anyway, the Wild might be better than Colorado right now. I don't think the Avs are very good. You lose Duchene and Barrie, and that is major. The Avs defense is piss poor at the moment. What I should have added is that I think the Wild and Avalanche are the two worst teams in the playoffs. But my main point at the time was that the Avs aren't that good, and if they were going to look great, it only be against the Wild.

 

Have fun.

 

Well, I was reading through the thread and that's the quote that stood out to me. If you took it personally, I am sorry, but I'm not sure why you got so upset in your response and attacked. I didn't even say you were wrong, just pointed out with 'hmmm' that I was starting to wonder, especially after Minny dominated Colorado, allowing 12 shots on goal.

The Habs vs B's series should be a brawl.  IMO, there are two teams capable of beating the Bruins.  The Rags and the Habs.

I seriously think the Pens have about 5 more seasons of being a solid team before they become mediocre again.

Even if that happens, that would make for 13 solid seasons, with at least one SC Championship.  A lot of franchises would kill for that. 

 

That being said, if they don't get at least one more Cup win in the Crosby-Malkin era, it's going to be seen as disappointing.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

One observation from this playoffs so far: The dirtier a prick you are the more successful you are. MIN and LA are loaded with them.

FWIW I'm happy Columbus is on the ropes and Detroit is out. In my mind both of those Western Conference carpetbaggers were sitting in one of our playoff spots.

 

Anyway, hopefully tomorrow is a bloodbath at the Garden...this is likely going 7 so once again the Rags are punching themselves out early on.
