All Jagr ever did in Pitt was cry and whine and only play offense. His own teamates were sick of him. As for Crosby being second best, I agree. Malkin is a bit better right now.
I'm looking forward to Ruutu/Roberts and Avery on the same ice...or Laraque.
Jagar's a beast none the less. His puck handling is amazing. Crosby's just a cocky little arrogant kid who thinks he rules the NHL because of all this Media hype, listen to the way he talks to the media, I can't stand it. Ovechkin is a real hockey player, all class, loves the game and his skill is just absolutely amazing. Every time he scores or his team scores he celebrates like a junior. Washington's lucky to have him.
Because I'm a habs fan I have to say
Habs vs Pens eastern final
Stars vs Avalanche Western
Well, I guess we'll disagree on that. No worries. I only missed a few games this year (Tivo!) and didn't get the media issue with him. Maybe it's because I just saw the local media talk with him. Ovechkin is amazing, no doubt. Would have been a fun series if the Caps moved on. The hype would have been sickening though. Softball got rained out tonight, so I'll get to watch the games live. Lot of talk here about Gaborik wanting out and the Wild dealing him. Fine by me.
Stars/Avs. Ballsy! I just don't want Dallas to win anything.
Its' really hard to predict. Look at San Jose, best team in the second half of the season and they went to game 7 with Calgary. What's your team Marcus?
Talking about the Pens of the old. Mario lemieux, in my opinion, is probably one of the best hockey players of all time. You can trust that guy with the puck at any time. It's too bad he retired early, I also forget why, I think it was something to do with cancer am I right? If I were to choose between Mario or Gretzky I would have Mario on my team. Another player was Pavel Bure, man such a great star but again injuries...
Well there we go Alex, we agree on something, lol.
He had Hodgkins, but the main reason was back and ultimately hip issues. When he first retired he averaged over two points a game for his career. I'm with you on Mario. If only he could have been healthy. Not that you can go wrong with Gretzky. I loved Bure too (fantasy hockey). He sure could score. I'm more a fan of the muckers. Kasparaitis, Ulf Samuelsson, Gary Roberts, etc. But that's cuz I'm a slow skater and all I can do is grab a hold or hack at people.
I guess it comes down to executing the game plan and Goaltending. Mario was awesome; Yeah Cancer at first Hodgekins he beat and came back. I think his back was all tweaked out thats he i think he retired for the last time. My team is the Flyers i know it sux for me year in year out. Yeah Pavel was an aweosme sick player.
The ref thought Richards hit was a knee to knee. It was definitely a shoulder and clean. What did the your TV announcers say on the reply? Nevertheless, props to the Habs for getting the tying goal with seconds left, and going hard to the net in ot on the game winner.
I cant wait for tonights game I actually feel bad not having to pay an extra fee to watch it.
Yeah, I grew up just outside of Pitt. Moved to Minnesota for college and stayed.Kasparaitis can be a dirty player at times but I see what your saying. I guess your a pens fan? We will see how your team performs tomorrow night against the rangers. I will definitely be watching that game.
I was watching both games and of course had switched over to Detroit and missed the goal at the end of regulation. Fun games. Stoked for tonight. My kids are Wild fans, but are on board for the Pens. My oldest son's (he's 10) hockey number was 68 this year to my chagrin, lol. He loves Jagr.
Thats so great you have your son skating. I forgot Jagr was a picker and didn't back check. He's come a long way and is a complete player now dont ya think?
I love it. First year squirt, season ended in March. My daughter is 8 and skated a few years as well, but decided to focus on gymnastics. I have a five year old who starts mites this year. Yikes. I'll be broke.
Well, it cost us over $2200 this year when you add in league cost, travelling costs, new skates/helmet/etc.
I don't think he'll play through high school. Baseball is his main game. Plays football and hockey too, but I imagine he'll eventually focus on one.
I am set for tonight. Wife is taking the younger two out for dinner and movie and Aiden and I are watching the game together.
