Playoffs

89 posts in this topic

nothing on the playoffs? no thoughts, comments?

Is it because the Wild are not in? crazy Or is it too early to talk about it.

Well Pittsburgh in the Eastern finals over Bruins. It'll be a rematch of the Red Wings and Pengs in the stanley cup finals!

I watched most the games yesterday the NBC game with Flyers vs Pens was a great game with hard hits.

I have a general hockey question- Anyone else think that if you score a short handed goal you should get your guy out of the penalty box?

Nothing like playoff hockey. Don't get Vs., so I'm limited to what's on NBC.

Had the Ranger/Wash and Philly/Pitt games on and thought both were very entertaining.

Same here man. I'd love to see Chicago make it to the finals. It's been too long for them. As for Anaheim, I love watching that hard nosed style that is very effective in playoffs...San Jose What? whistle

I'm heading back to MN on Thursday. Pretty quiet up here in Montreal now as well. No lack of hockey on the tube up here however. Juniors, IHL, all pro games... if it's on the ice it's on TV.

Flames extinguished! I love it. [PoorWordUsage] coach, [PoorWordUsage] players, [PoorWordUsage] fans; happening in front of them in their precious Saddledome makes it all the better. Turn the lights out on your way out the arena Keenan....loser.

Wow, there has been some great playoff games so far!!! Hat tricks, overtimes, fights, back and forth action...some of these games have been some of the best that I can recall in recent memory...

I hope you guys were watching what I was watching tonight because it was a real barn burner! Hawks Win, Hawks Win, Hawks Win! This game went into the third period tied at 3 and finished with a bunch of lead swings and the Hawks on top 7-5 what a finish, and Patrick Kane got the Hat Trick to boot! Mighty strong going into the next round but it looks like it will be an old school Original Six match up with the Red Wings who will no doubt be heavily favored, I don't think the Hawks would want it any other way! Go Hawks!

Congrats WindyCity on your beloved Hawks; relish it. Were they supposed to get this deep with the young team? Anyway its time to choke on some octopus grin.

Great game to watch....Kane's 3rd goal was amazing, I don't think I've seen a hard backhand shot like that, and was right on! It was a barn burner, indeed!

Thanks to all that chimed in and here are the answers, in no particular order: No they were not supposed to get this far, yes they do have a great young nucleus that will get better in the next few years and yes, Pier, that back hand was one of the nastiest shots I have seen in history, wicked haaad!

As for the octopus....I LOVE CALAMARI!!! I hope the young studs from Chi-Town fillet up the old warhorses from Motown and we will all feast on some Calamari!

Yes, I know, the Wings will be the prohibative favorite...but for now...I CAN DREAM!

Original Six....here we come!

Here are the old school players I grew up with, feel free to fill in the blanks of my failing memory for the Hawks if there are any other dinosaurs out there!

#2 Bill White

#3 Keith Magnuson

#4 Doug Jarret

#5 Lou Angotti

#7 Pit Martin?

#8 Jim Pappin?

#9 Duh! Bobby Hull

#10 Duh x2 Dennis Hull

#12 Whitey Stapleton

#15 Eric Nesterenko

#22 Jerry King Kong Korab

#35 Tony Esposito

I hope there are a few more Black Hawk dinosaurs that can remeber back to the good old days of Billy Reay......

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
