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.I don't see the pens hitting hard enough.

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....

errrrr im guessing they dont have any iron city there. you have time to ship some ups. Maybe they do if its a steelers bar. thats a good question huh?

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.

Let me know if your going to be in South Jersey during a weekend in the summer. I head down there a lot.
05-07-2008, 03:00 PM
I know i'll be there August 18-22. Generally stay either in AC or Egg Harbor. Not sure if anything before that. Hope not, too much going on here. I know I'll be in Dallas and San Antonio this summer too. But yeah, I'll let you know for sure.

Phillies play the Nationals and the Dodgers that week keep me posted. Your not bringing your clubs out are ya?
05-07-2008, 03:38 PM
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...

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.

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.

05-08-2008, 04:49 PM
I can't stand the Wings. I hope they sweep Dallas though. No one I hate more than them.
I say Wings in 6.

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.
05-09-2008, 09:46 AM
Well, they have big bodies, have to find a way to put it on them somehow. It is too bad. Didn't he run the powerplay too?
