I never want to go through the drama of a game 7 again. I cant wait for the Pens/Rangers series. I definitely think the Flyers can beat the Habs. Then they will get smoked by the Pens.
Exciting game. I caught the first and most of the third period and overtime. I think the Flyers will get past the Habs too. Rangers worry me a bit, but I think the Pens will be fine.
So is Mike Keenan the most arrogant coach ever?
Detroit Colorado could be fun. Wish Claude Lemieux was still around, lol.
I couldn't watch the Flame game after the Flyer's game because I was so mentally drained. What did Keenan say? He was a tough coach when he coached the Flyers in the 80's and the BlackHawks. He won a cup with the Rangers. Everywhere he has been he caused a lot of Sh**.
I met Claude a few years ago when I was working with the Coyotes out in Arizona. Awesome guy. I didnt ask him about Draper. I did however ask him about Hextall lol
I am still a little bent at Forsburgh not coming back to Philly. But I guess winning a cup with the AVS I can see why he chose to be reunited with them. I think he would of came to Philly if Gagne didn't go down. Nevertheless, I don't want him to to win the cup. Plus my girl is from hockeytown usa. Yeah its gonna be a great series.
He pulled Kiprosov in the 2nd after a goal he had no chance on. Put Cujo in and he gave up a soft one a few seconds later. made it 5-2 I think. Anyway, the announcers were confused and finally concluded it was just one of the things he does and no one knows why. Flames looked deflated after that.
I sat next to Keenan at an NHL awards banquet when he was with the Flyers. He was quiet, but polite. (I was working with the North Stars). What did you do with Phx?
Actually, I worked for one of the Coyotes. I worked the door for Andre Nazorov he owned a club in downtown Phoenix. It was great meeting/hanging with all the guys. As you know first hand the Players are so cool and laid back. Brad May was one of the nicest guys I have ever met.
I don't know if you saw last night after Lupal's goal the Cap fans were throwing stuff at the Flyers. Carter was doing an interview and a Cap fan was throwing stuff at him. How low class is that? Even the Philly fans don't do that lol
Wow, that sounds like a lot of fun. Imagine some interesting people passed through the door. Does he still own it? I am slated to head down there in June for work.
Neil Broten was fun. Three weeks ago my friend's band played a bar in Baldwin, WI. Not far over the Minn/Wisc border from the Twin Cities. Broten was there of all things. I recognized him right away and spoke for a few minutes. Said he wanted to get out without dealing with people. Of all places. Anyway, it looked like my group was the only one that recognized him. He seemed pretty tuned up.
Was great when the North Stars (won't call them the Stars) played the Pens in the cup. Got to see Lemieux and all the others lift the cup.
Needless to say, I'm pulling for San Jose. My second favorite team is whoever is playing Dallas.
The players are laid back. Fun to be around. I kept stats and went down to record locker room interviews (wasn't permitted to ask questions, lol) whenever ESPN or MSG was in town.
Never been to a game there. It was low class all the way. Of the places I have been, Chicago was the worst. Some of the Hawks-North Stars games were crazy back then. Second worst....the Spectrum. I had exit routes planned out after a few minutes.
Phillys good but no good enough to take out Montreal. I say the series will end in 5 to 6 games, no more than that.
Not that it really means anything as was demonstrated last series.
But the habs went 4-0 this season against the Flyers outscoring them 15-6
Hartnell needs to stay out of the box.
I can't believe you ran into the Brot Man that must have been so cool to see him again.
Wow seeing that Pitt Cup series must have been amazing. What an awesome gig you had.
I don't see the Rangers winning, but they are tough. Would rather have faced Washington. Hate Crosby? How about Jagr? Never could stand him, even when he was with Pitt. Regardless, will be a good series.
I agree with the above, If the Flyers can bang them up yet stay out of the box, they can pull it off.
Any thoughts on the Campbell, I mean Western, Conference?
I despise Crosby cause hes a big phuc*ing BABY. Ill give it up he is the second best hockey player in the NHL. Nevertheless a baby and easy to hate.
What do you guys think? Here is how I see it.
