    They made very intelligent business and hockey deals, as the two types of deals, at times, do not coincide!

    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.

    With Kiprusoff in net, they always have a chance.

    Hopefully he regains his playoff form of 03-04. Getting bounced in the first round three years running is getting disappointing. With Langkow, Borque, 'Tuzzi all coming back for the playoffs, and the addition of Jokinen and Leopold, the Flames are looking very formidable!

    This will be the first time they have had a legit No 1 center, so I give them a great chance in the playoffs.

    Yes, exactly. No offense to Langkow, but he is a solid, solid second-line center. Iginla, Jokinen and Cammy is a very, very competent line.

  9. The Flames do look strong, I really can't wait for the playoffs to start.

    They play tonight, do they not? Is "The Show" still out?

    While we are here, can we spark up the Ovechkin vs., Crosby debate?

  12. 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.

    Right here: Another Hockey Thread...Ovechkin v Crosby

    So true, I always get urges to just bodycheck people in public when they walk around with their heads down.

  16. BRUINSSSSS....CAN YOU SAY STANLEY CUP CHAMPS

    The Devils have a far better chance of coming out of the East, IMO.

  19. 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

    It is possible, though I doubt it. The B's are have an incredibly balanced scoring attack, but that core of players, particularly the forwards, lack substantive playoff experience; that is exactly why they picked up Recchi, and this goes double for their primary goaltender.

    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.

  21. 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!!!!!

    why is that laughable? they're 14-2-2 in their last 18 games -- including a win against Boston and the Capitals?

    they're all good teams (including the Devils) and I can see any one of them winning the conference.

    The Pittsburgh Penguins demolished the East last year; have one of the best records in the league over the last quarter of the season; have two of the three best players in the league; and faired poorly due to key injuries early in the year - not sure your point is well made there.

    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].

  24. 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.

    That is your opinion, and it is good you are confident in your team.
