This series wouldn't feel complete without another OT.
What a snipe by Toews, jesus
I'll agree on the scores, although we do have the potential to score lots of goals. We were first on the PP, and were in the top half of the league in goals. While we are a defense first team ( thats the Trotz system) unlike in past years we do have the ability to make you pay for screwing up.
As far as the non-spending part goes, well some of that is and isn't our fault. We spent 7 mil on Peks, Suter has been offered better than 7 mill a season but refused to sign it. We are paying Weber 7.5 mil this season and the owners have said they are willing to pay him fair market value as well to stay. If the owners back up there words the Preds will be one of the higher cap teams next season.
This year was one of those years where we had actually planned to take a slight step back to be able to sign Suter, Weber and grab a few more. Plans got changed when we did well with the youngest team in the league, and Sutter said he wasn't going to resign til the end of the year. Also we let a few FA's go either because they got ludicrous offers ( Joel Wards contract made me laugh) or because they stayed hurt all the time ( Sully).
The owners have said they are willing to spend the money they need to, its really just a matter of getting players to sign. ( There is a reason they brough in another partner from Canada, and supposedly he opened his wallet and said to do what it takes) We will see if that happens or not.
12 in 12 makes more sense if you win 12 straight, imo, than "win 12 games in '12 playoffs", because that's like, what any winner will be doing?
Because 12 wins in 12 tries.
If you lost the first game (I forgets), you still have a shot at 12 straight though!
(edit - Has anyone ever swept the playoffs? And if so, in modern times)
Am I reading this correct, Boston/Washington play tomorrow also? Back2back?
worthless blackhawks.. why cant u just lose dammit... Phoenix came so close to killing them tonight zzz.. and LOL@ the Sens taking care of the Rangers talk about their kickass goalie saving everything.
fucking Rafi.. 25 games is excessive. but ill be honest.. i love Raffi.. when he was on the Canucks we'd always laugh when he gets sent onto the ice taking bets trying to figure out who hes gonna cream next, i admit i love seeing people get smashed as fuck by a big hit.. but for **** sakes avoid the head dammit..
that being said.. anyone who hits the head from now on should also gain a massive suspension like that too.

Fuck yea. Toews... Fuck yea. Just fuck yea. Coyotes is time to meet the real United Center. The place where you get beat up, in OT most likely.
It's not impossible for Hawks to come back. The Danish Hockey Championship game 7 was played yesterday, and the team that was down 3-1 actually came back and won the serie 4-3. I hope Hawks can do the same thing.
This playoff is just crazy as said before, the year of the underdogs. Imagine no Nucks, No Hawks, No Rangers, No Wings, No Bruins.. Unreal..
Cmon Hawks, to more wins and you can start all fresh, Cmon beat those bastards on Monday will ya.
Oderint dum metuat.Success is dependent on effort.
1-0 Flyers, guess it's going to game 7.
