Red Wings @ Sharks - Game Six - 5/7
Posted May 07, 2007 - 01:56 PM
The Red Wings have not lost a game in which they could eliminate their opponents since June 3, 1998, when they lost Game Five of the Western Conference Finals to Dallas. They would win Game Six of that round to take the series.

Sammy f*cking ownz you!
Despite his Miscue on Grier, Hasek has come up BIG 2 or 3 times. The WINGS must regain control of the game in the third. I would hate to see SJO get one. It would turn the momentum in favor of the SHARKS and the WINGS will be back on their heels.

Bring on the Quackers, the Fish are done!
Impressive play by the WINGS. Three solid periods! Great play by DOM to keep SJO off the board. Seemed that SJO never had control of the game. They just couldn't solve a strong forecheck and sound defensive play by the WINGS. GREAT TEAM EFFORT. Everyone contributed! Celebrate, but not too much. Get some rest -- but not too much. Break out the film, and get back to work. ANAHEIM is formidable, but not unbeatable.

I actually disagree. While the NHL *should* want its top teams and top talent to advance as far as possible, everyone loves the underdogs. It makes for a great story when an eighth seed makes the Finals.
Not saying that I want to see it, just saying that there weren't a lot of people complaining about Edmonton's run last year.

Oh yeah! Top teams making it far is good for the league. Nobody likes to see 8th place teams. I mean they earned their spot but non hockey fans will not watch teams they think are bad. Giguire is going to be tough next round. I think the Wings will pull it off in 6 or 7.
I believe "parity" in the NHL is a good thing. By parity, I mean that any team is a contender. It is good for the league, and good for hockey fans, that an 8th seed can go all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. The fact that an 8th seed can win the championship speaks to how close the League is in player and team skill.

I think the game would get boring if it was always the same team winning the cup every year. If it were always the same 4 or 5 teams and and different buttom 2 or 3 every year. It'd be the same teams battling it out and sooner or later people would wonder why the F*** there's 30 teams.
That is... unless it was the wings winning every year. Then I'd be content.
