Yesterday my friend said she was going to root for Boston since they're the underdog. I said that I don't think there really is an underdog for this series. Which says great things about what we are about to experience. I hope every game is like last night.
Why is langenbrunner so hated around here... I use to love the guy he was one of my favorites for a long time and it seems like he got a real bad rep when he was forced to leave i must've missed something
I don't understand it either. He wasn't playing good the whole year before he was traded. And everyone on this board was apparently in the locker room to see for themselves how he was so detrimental to the locker room. Even though all the players liked him. He didn't waive his no-trade in the beginning of the year because he liked playing here. While anyone else doing that would be heralded he becomes the scapegoat to a bad season. I remember the game after he was traded someone was wearing a "langenbummer" jersey and someone was taking a pic of it and laughing, I point to the 03 banner and told them to be sure to take a pic of that too.

Threads like this make me frequent this board less and less. I only read the first page and a half because my head hurt from scratching it so much. Some times I think Triumph doesn't even watch the games but merely goes to the stat sheets afterwards for his tell-all fenwick and other bs stats to make his decisions.
CBGB is a 4th line. And Zubrus coming back will finally fill up a third line that will allow CBGB to be bumped back down. But to say they're not even a good line? We would not have gone as far in the playoffs if they were not a line. They are our best 4th line in YEARS. Right now it's just a matter of not having more talented bodies to fill up the third line, mostly because of barch
