I should probably avoid Vegas

I'm doing so bad on my round 1 predictions. That's what happens when I get emotionally involved with too many teams, I guess. ;)

People are impressed with the Habs for coming back from 3-1 to win the series, and rightly so, but the thing that further impresses me is that they did it after Kovalev's screw up in Game 4. They should have been completely defeated at that point, but they weren't. I'm interested to see what they have left in the tank for their series against the Bolts.

As for the Canucks... I already told frala this, but they're the only team I would "expect" to come back and tie the game at the last second (almost literally), and that's a big part of why I love them. I'm not sure if I'd have the stamina to be a primary Canucks fan, though. :P

Big hugs to frala, em16, jetpants, iltb, certainthings, solookup, siko_md, kimikee, sodapop_300. Your boys did good.

From the SJ Mercury: Last spring, Selanne declined to exercise his option to stay in San Jose. He and close friend Paul Kariya made headlines in July when the two offered their services to the Avalanche at a below-market rate.

*Hugs* :) Hehe its hard work yo ;)

close friend hehehe

Dude, offering their "services" at "below-market rate"???

It's not terribly surprising considering they're a Bob Gainey team, and a team with heart and desire.

I think it's the whole sticking together things that got to me. Like Kovalev made a boneheaded move and the rest of the team could have harboured secret resentment against him, but they didn't. Even after he kinda' blamed Souray and Souray kinda' blamed him.

As opposed to my boys who went from toasting each other and singing after wins to having "in the house" problems that affected their game?

You mean last season compared to this season? I was just surprised by the Habs because that kind of thing is usually a big blow in the short term, which should have ended them as there was only one game left.

No, I mean like a month ago they were singing in the lockerroom and all best buddies and then right before the playoffs somethign happened and they all got pissy at each other.

I just meant that there's a difference when you've got a bunch of players pulled together from all different places, and a difference when you have a core and you add a few elements onto it to help push you to the next level like the Habs did, and like Bob Gainey did.

That's true. An extreme example of that is the Rangers.

With the Habs Kovalev only came over around the trade deadline, though, and he's one of those superstar types, so I would think that the other players on the team might have resented him for his mistake and blamed him, thereby not taking accountability themselves and having that manifest in the next game.

I admit I haven't followed the Habs very closely, but I didn't get the impression of them as being an especially close-knit group. They did exceed expectations this season, though, and that has a tendency to bring guys together, or vice versa.

"services" dude "services"? That is like "routine". That word now and forever has slashy overtones.

*grin* We're slowly but surely making our way through the dictionary. :)

SERVICES?? Below-market rate?? WHORE! XD

*temporary cheers for Sharks so they can kick some Avs butt*

*nibbles finger and waits for next season* :(

Cheap whores, no less.

Hee, thank you. :D

*hugs*

*huggles* It wouldn't be the Canucks if they weren't doing it in dramatic fashion ;D

Services? Oh God *scrubs brain*

They so need a surgeon's warning.

Cheap little whores.

*hugs back*

but they're the only team I would "expect" to come back and tie the game at the last second (almost literally), and that's a big part of why I love them.

Hear. Fucking. Hear. *skishes them*


when the two offered their services to the Avalanche at a below-market rate.

Bwahahahaha. It's nice that the media recognizes them as cheap whores.

i love the last minute tying! wish it could have gone all the way though. good luck san jose!

*hugs* I think it might be hazardous to my health being a Canucks fan, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. *loves them so hard*

And dude! Seriya are cheap fucking whores! *snickers*

No pain no gain? The Canucks are great. :)

*giggle* They so are! I wonder if "services" entailed putting on shows together...
