Canuck history as Vancouver hockey

  1. Apr 13, 2007 #1
    First game of the playoffs makes Canuck history as Vancouver opened by blowing a two-goal, third-period lead before beating the Stars 5-4 in quadruple overtime.

    I actually went to bed after the 3rd overtime, found out the score this morning.

    Sweeeet

    The NHL is boring now. They took all the fun out of it with all the penalty calling. Carolina won the cup last year all on bad penalty calls on the other team. If you watched the games, you'll see what I mean. It's quite sad. It's not a big surprise that they didn't make the playoffs this year.

    Also, the same thing is happening this year. Did you watch the Penguins game? Man, that was brutal with penalty calling. The first Crosby goal should have counted. He did not kick it in. They decided....

    NEVERMIND! Damn post got lost.

    Anyways, new hockey equals boring. NBA playoffs coming up.

    The real thrill at the moment is the Swedish Championship final, where MoDo yesterday took a 3-2 lead against Linköping (best of seven matches).

    perhaps leaf fans just suck...compare the home game versus away game winning percentages.

    Didn't help that most of their major acquisitions had injuries...namely Peca and Kubina. With peca out they were getting dominated on the PK and D end.

    Don't trade sundin ...trade McCabe fire ferguson and bring back Pat Quinn.

    OH and man i'm glad i didn't stay up to watch teh canucks game...1am 2nd overtime..and i said forget it. Gotta love the commentators...

    pass to OHLUND, SLAPSHOT, GOALLLLL.

    disappointed that ATL lost. Toss up between OTT/PITTS want fleury to win...but you can't do much with D like that. its like WASH with Kolzig and ovechkin.

    i hope the final 8 MINN, CGY,VAN,NASH, ATL, TB, OTT/PITTS, NYI cuz it would be nice to see SATAN/YASHIN/SMYTH get rings but buffalo will get by easily. Would be interesting if the 4 newere teams make it to the playoffs.

    i want a NASH/ VAN v PITT/OTT final

    and stupid NJ won....they were the reason why LEAFS got ousted and stupid leafs taking out 2 CDN teams in one game.

    I agree with one thing. Bring back Pat Quinn.

    Trading Sundin is a hot topic. He's not a leader like some people think he is. If people actually listened to the hockey player interviews from the Leafs, you will see that none of the players talk about his leadership. Tucker even said once that it's rare that Sundin takes a leadership role. It's either you trade him or rip that C off clean. Trading Sundin also frees up $7 million in cap room, which is a lot. I wouldn't trade McCabe though. Just send him to the minors along with Kubina. You then save $10 million on cap room, plus Sundin, that's $17 million!

    No offense to Sunding. But he's heading nowhere but downhill from here on out. Ferguson should never have been hired.

    Now, Bettman is a whole other story. Only an idiot would re-sign him or hire him to begin with!

    We were watching the Penguins game the other night. It was disgusting how many penalties were being called. The same thing with the Dallas game. It absolutely ruins the playoffs. I think the first period of the Dallas game had more penalty play minutes than even strength minutes. That's pathetic. The power play used to be a special circumstance in the playoffs. Now it's more common that 5 on 5.

    Go Wings.

    The Ottawa Senators has 3:30 minutes of 5-3 time! THIS ISN'T SUPPOSE TO HAPPEN IN THE PLAYOFFS BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED LAST TIME (i.e. Carolina (opposite team) and Calgary). They discussed before to make sure things like that doesn't happen because they said they didn't the playoffs to be decided based on 5-3's and stupid penalties.

    Bettman ruined the game. He tried to follow suit with the NBA to open up the offense, but he DID too much. One step at a time man. Goalies can't go in the corner... dumbest thing ever.

    Don't even get me started on Bettman. Anyone who knows hockey does not like the current state of the game.
