The NHL is pulling out all the stops to get the Caps in

Recommended Posts

This is the dumbest post of the night. I watched how lazy the russians that won the Cup for Detroit were skating around holding up Lord Stanley's prize. Sober up and post tomorrow.

you're kidding me right?

someones a grumpy guss.

do some research proving how russians arn't lazy.

but you're right, I am pretty drunk right now... how'd you know?

Show me this "Russian Plastered Roster" that you speak of. I never said a team with russians on it never won the cup.

and if a captain has won it, I stand corrected and I must have misunderstood my information, no reason to poop a brick champ.

Not to mention the last person to post porn on this site ended up being criminally charged by both the FBI and the RCMP. Change of IP number or not, they can still track you down very easily.

who was that?

Seriously, I am not going to do it lol. I have more respect for their fans than to do it. It was just a dumb suggestion and I was angry at them. delete it, whatever. I was moderator on a car forum some time ago, I know even if I did do it it would get deleted fast. Plus I have enough respect for the fans there to do that. I just dislike them coming in here causing a ruckus.

And I answered it. Nope because Walker is not AO. Walker has a history of flying off the handle a bit. AO really does not. And Like I said this is the same around the NHL. Perfect example. living in Buffalo I got to watch a really dirty player last year with Briere. He is low down dirty slew foots,spears,trips,etc. They do not get called because he is not known for flying off the handle or playing the game on the edge. it is what it is. And it is the same for every team.

so then what your saying is, because a certain player reacts a certain way he may or may not get a call??? Then your validating my point. Superstars sometimes get special treatment. AO, Sid, Hasek (especially with B-LO)get protected by the NHL. You can't tell me that Bettman isn't pleased by tonights outcome..

The game tonight was absolutely ridiculous...at the end when all the caps got together and were celebrating outside of the crease, they really had nothing to celebrate...only that they got the game fixed for them, and carolina had every possible penalty called on them.

I dont care how much people say that Sidney Crosby is overrated...Ovechkin is the most overrated person in the NHL right now, and you honestly can't deny it! Its pretty much if you touch the kid, you get a call for it.

Why we bring Hasek in this??

If your gonna talk about goalies talk about Marty Brodeour , and other goalies..

Hasek isnt protected by the lleague.. or special treatment...

Guys calm down.....

Technically you're still in 3rd, because you have more wins in the tie breaker. You win the next two games you're in the playoffs.

Ovechkin is the most overrated person in the NHL right now

You are kidding right? He may have gotten away with some tonight but overrated....no way. He IS the best player in the league in my opinion.

Many players get protected by the NHL. And I do not want to start a computer war but Staal is in the same boat. He gets calls his way at times and gets no calls at times also. Every team gets them. It is not just Hasek,Crosby,Ovechkin. Do I think bettman is pleased with tonights game? Gee I dunno. Either way he wins. Either the NHL's best player may make it to his first postseason, or a franchise he wanted to prove would succeed outside Toronto's "ideas". He has and does take a ton of heat for teams down south. I think Carolina winning also puts another feather in his cap.

I have been watching Canes hockey since 2004 and I have never seen so many penalties called on them. Also, i have never seen Peter Laviolette so mad the he is freaking out screaming and getting penalized for it.This team has always prided itself on the discipline of not taking penalties.

Belive me I know because I am also a Flyers fan, living in Pa., so I have seen a team that has a tendency to get a lot of penalties.The Flyers forum was talking about the same thing with the refs calling the games in the Caps favor to knock the Flyers out of the playoffs, never thinking it would affect Carolina.I even said something to my husband at dinner tonight about the refs going after Carolina, I can't believe it.

This really sucks!!!!!!

Truth... Crosby is the most over-rated one. Malkin scores like 5 pts a night when Crosby is not on the ice. Their last couple games have been mediocre at best.

Dude, my best friend is a Sabres fan. I have watched as many Sabres games as I have Canes games over the last 5 years. When he was with the Sabres, he knocked off more nets because he was either out of position or whatever, I never ever saw him get a call once. My buddy would tell you that. And in the 02 finals he did it in game 3 or 4 in Carolina and guess what he got.....nada....he was protected...

And I will give you Marty...100%. He is a beast though....and he is like 72 years old

5 pts is a bit of a stretch. And Malkin played better when Crosby was out of the lineup because Malkin was moved to his natural position at center, not because Crosby get's overrated attention. <_<

No honestly im not

ever since hes been getting 50+ goals, all the spotlight has been on him...and he always got away with calls, not just tonight

and its your opinion and probably many others, but i just dont see that

I think he wants AO or Sid to win at all costs. They are hunting for the next Great One to encourage Americans to buy into hockey. Most American teams would not exist if Gretzky was never traded to the Kings, and this is why you will never see Crosby as a Oiler or Leaf, and why Pittsburgh still has the Pens, for that matter. Hockey is always going to be popular in Canada, but American teams need all-stars to succeed.

I have no idea why they still think having Sid and Malkin on the same lines is a great idea. Obviously Malkin is just fine on his own.

I don't think they have them on the same line anymore. That's what the Hossa trade was for....

Hossa-Crosby

Malkin - Malone

I agree with you about a war,and to some point about Staal. I can't recall, though, such a blatent hit or slash or whatever that he did, that was so obvious that Tripp was like "Wow, how did Staal not get called for that".

I agree that calls get overlooked all the time, but christ, this game is important for both clubs. You would think phantom goalie interference, AO's hit, Hedican's massive crosscheck, are calls that should be made or calls that should not be made. Walkers GI call killed a 5 on 3...would we have scored?? Probably not with the way we played tonight, but don't essentially give momemtum one way or another.. Thats my beef. And remember, I lost so I am a bitter b*tch... :lol:

BTW.....Oilers/Flames game is pretty good...

That is how our game should have been tonight. Even if we had to lose, I would have rather have lost like the Oilers did...

Yeah, I just say that finish up (thanks for the tip on the free center ice preview on this board). But um, those announcers were pretty bad. makes me appreciate tracy and forslund that much more.
