avery is a piece of ****.. what a goon.

I was happy my Flames were so active, and called my Pens picking up Geurin about two weeks out from the deadline! Depending on how well Keenan gets Jokinen to play, the Flames could be dangerous.

sure do -- I think he is out? Gonchar is out too and they're putting Goligoski in..
haha the timeless debate -- Ovechkin is just so god damn good.. I hate the caps but I can't deny that.. I think the OP actually started a thread on that exact debate.

Huge hockey fan here. Ive been a Bruins fan since 1980. What could be better, a cool game you can hit and fight in, and its legal.

Well thats your opinion. The bruins were slumping, which was fine. Now they've picked it up at the right time. The bruins are deeper than the devils. The devils have a better goalie, but the B's can beat the devils IMO

The Devils have been on a losing streak lately [five, I believe], but they have two important things the B's do not:
a) Spectacular goaltending;
b) Experienced core of forwards.
Unless you are the Detroit Red Wings, you do not make a run without a spectacular goalie - Thomas has played very well this year, but it is a no-brainer in regard to him v., Martin Brodeur.
IMO, given the way the Pens have played since Therien was fired, it will be either be the Pens or Devils coming out of the East.

The pens wont make it out of the east Thats laughable!!! They wont make it past the first round. Thomas can get hot and has shown he can, he has one of the best GA in the NHL. The Bruins have 3scoring lines, they can score goals. They also have home ice. The B's have shown they can play with the devils. If any team Im scared of them playing the capitals. The B's havent played well against them. They can score goals, but their downside is they let in alot of goals. The B's may not have alot of experience up front, they are young. They have experience on the defense. Bruins vs Devils in the east.....B's in 6!!!!!

G.A.A., is more of a team stat than a goalie stat, but that is neither here nor there. Save % is more indicative of an individual goalie's performance, but, that being said, Thomas leads that category as well. You seem very confident in a completely unproven playoff goalie - myself, not so much.
Statistics are secondary to proven capability to win meaningful match-ups, though. In that sense, Thomas was capable, but not extraordinary, going 3-4 in '08. Considering you are a fan of G.A.A., though, his '08 playoff GA of 2.65 and Save % of .914 would be very respectable in the regular season, but were well behind the levels necessary for a Cup run [Fleury and Osgood both had sub-2 GAs and +.930 Save %].
The B's most definitely have playoff experience on 'D' - Ference, Stuart, and Montador have all been to a Cup - so I will concede that point. Other teams, particularly in the West, have more talented blue-lines, though.
The Bruins have had a very good, very surprising regular season, but I feel it will end there. I have them conceivably making it to the East Finals, but losing in five to either NJ, Pittsburgh, or even Washington [though I do not feel Washington is going to make it far, either].

Yes they were great LAST YEAR...Until they made the move with the coach they were a good team struggling, even with 2 of the best players on the team.
Thomas went 3 and 4 last year when the Bruins were an 8th seed and almost came back against Montreal. The Bruins this year and including Thomas are way better than last year. They have 3 really good lines, and some could argue they have a 4th line that can score (sometimes). After this losing period, they look like they did at the beninning of the year. They wont be a push over....Brodeur or not, he isnt god, he has to show his age sometime, and this year, this is the time they get past the East.
