    Went through it with the North Stars, and almost a number of times with the Pens. I hate it.

    My uncle was actually one of the investors. I dont think they will be going anywhere for a long long time. ID you have to love the fact that the Leafs stuck together and didn't opt out to me that was a great move for hockey.

    You guys aren't really underdogs anymore, you have great players a great goaltender. The flyers hit the net hard and that's how you get the goals in the playoffs. I don't see the pens hitting hard enough. Biron will be tested but he's a better goalie than Fleury. Another thing, Montreal and Pittsburgh both have similar game stlyes where we depend on our skill and speed so if Philly can do what they did against montreal to the pens you guys are good to go to the cup finals and I'll pull for the flyers 100%

    Roberts, Ruutu, Laraque....gotta disagree....if the flyers win though, I'll be rooting for them as well.

    Roberts is haunting me already I think he will be the key to the series!! Laraque is pound for pound the toughest player in the NHL. It will be interesting to see if the Flyers dress Cote.

    It seems as if they have to. In fact I expect Laraque to make the score sheet a few times. He has great hands and commands a lot of room out there. I think the Flyers wont commit a lot of attention (simply cause they cant cause of Cros. and Mal.) much like they didn't to Brashear in the cap series. Wow this is going to be an intense series.

    We have a Steelers bar here in St. Paul. A lot of them are getting together there to watch the game. Trying to get the pass at home, but no go so far. Be ind of fun to see it with a group. If not, watching with my son isn't a bad deal either....

    It's a win win for situation for sure.
    If you do venture out nothing like knocking back a few iron city's and maybe find a terrible towel to swing around

    Actually, a few of the stores carry it, but they treat it like an import. Love the aluminum bottles, lol. In the old days, some of the pilots for NWA would bring some back for the playoff games. I have to go to Mays Landing, NJ periodically for work, fly into Philly. Had a few Yuenglings over the last year.

    I wish, the place I stay in Egg H has a course, but I've never been able to try it out. I'm our corporate trainer, so I give speeches and training sessions for new employees and for new processes, etc, so by the time I'm done it's getting dark. I stayed a weekend once last year, but that was in February.....Be fun to catch a game, pass by the stadiums everytime. When I head home, I stay right by the airport, so that's convenient...

    Hey don't get me wrong Mahoney, Pens do have a few guys that can really rush the net... but the entire damn Philly squad does just that. Umbergers a beast. The pens just have so many skilled players I can't see them struggling so it will be interesting to see these two teams match up.

    Love Umberger. He'll be up for this one, has to be weird playing the team you grew up with, and kind of fun. Be interesting if he and Malone get on the ice together, imagine some hitting will be going on. Tomorrow should be physical as they try to take the upper hand, lot of hitting I would guess. Orpik generally leads the Pens in hits. How did I forget about him? Hope Hartnell is in the box a lot like usual, hope Ruutu stays out. Doubt it.

    At the trade deadline high profile players such as Blake and Sundin to name a few were thinking about getting traded to a playoff contender. They decided they were going to stay put and try and make a playoff push it didn't work out but very admirable.

    Ah no they didn't try and stay for that reason.

    The leafs were really trying to move them. When you have over 20 million tied up with a crappy defence, something needs to be done.

    Sundin I can appreciate him staying he has been the only consistent player, just has no support cast.

    As a leaf fan, there is no optimistic view in the near future. They are near salary cap limit, with overpaid players, they won't be a playoff contender next year either.

    They did fire Paul Maurice yesterday (Head Coach) so there is speculation that a new GM will be hired soon.

    I just want a new team in Southern Ontario. Sure it would probably ruin the Buffalo franchise as those are mostly Canadians heading south to watch a game at a reasonable value. But atleast I would have a team to cheer for I have given up on the leafs 41 years since there last Stanely Cup. Heck 41 years since they last made the Stanley cup finals.

    Oh well..... my attention is too the Jays now LOL.

    Bob Clarke Said he would consider the GM job in Toronto if offered.

    If that ever happened I would burn every leaf merchandise I own.

    He is borderline retarded.

    No worries.

    The leafs have a bunch of big deals with no trade clauses.

    The leafs tried to move them, but they either refused to waive the no trade clause, or they were not getting any bites for these over paid bums

    I honestly think Dallas will give them a good run. They have been challenged.

    Detroit had two bird matches.

    I say Dallas wins.

    No Timonen. That's a blow for the Flyers. Wings in five looks like a good pick....

    Indeed Timonen is the center piece, he is a shut down D-Man. He played great defending Alexander the Great.
    Who's going to slow down Crosby now? Who is going to stop Malkin? Pens have way to much Fire Power. Biron is playing great but We are talking about Malkin and Sid the Kid.
    I would of said Flyers in 7 but now its Pens in 6.
