I guess you can tell me and McGriff are Canadian... anything Czech is poison to us... why do you think we hate the trap?

i see, well i dont get to see much international hockey, not on tv much here in the good old u.s. of a.

ok, make the ice larger, take out the red (well keep red for icing but thats it) and blue lines, make it 4 on 4 and goalies dont get a stick.

Even if they haven't scored goals, their effort has been lacking... they look like the Red Wings.

Your fancentrism seems to be clouding your sense of judgement. Welcome to my world.
Be honest with you - I have been unfortunate and missed a good chunck of all of the third round games, except for game three. I do not think I have ever been more frustrated watching a professional game in my life BECAUSE: 1) I felt they were not playing as hard as they could (breaking down the defense in front of the net, going after the puck, etc. etc. etc.). 2) Lack of decent shots on Giggy (we know he can save them when they are on the ice). They lacked determination!!!!!! If this is how they have been playing the whole time - that sucks.

I am a former sport journalist (who had editors to clean up messes like these posts) and a high school lacrosse coach. I have also been known to be a VERY fickle fan. What I am saying is, you will not see fancentrism here. Nope. Not going to happen. All of my arguments have been based on not being able to judge team's "Will and Determination." Griffdawg, although I love him to death as a hockey fan and fellow U2 fan - is fancentric (I like that word). grifdawg/canucks

You lost me at Zonelistener. Help me out there. (If it is in reference to the "zone" style of play, I'm not a fan either way. If it is for he Listener part....


Hey, after the Stanley Cup, in NHL and good sportmanship tradition, we have to skate through the line and shake hands!

Well the Wild finally scored a goal... how you say? Traffic in front of the net. Sheesh, even a mediocre columnist such as myself could deduce that... they actually showed some determination... when the Ducks were in the penalty box. Surely, the world must be ending, because isn't that what I told them to do... Doug Risebrough of course I'll coach the Wild next season

PS- Of course I'll shake hands, but I'm gonna get in all the shots I can before that line forms... see you at center ice zoner!

But Cujo, aren't you going to pull a Jacque Lemaire and head for the dressing rooms without even shaking hands at all?

In all seriousness, Zoni, it's kind of too bad the Wild lost. I was hoping for them, since they're such a young group and have come so far after only 3 years. The Oilers went to the finals in only their 4th year, and won the cup in their 5th. So you guys are right on track to being a dynasty! Keep your chin up.

cujer, is being in front of the net really a tell tale sign of will and determination. i mean its no that hard to make traffic in front of the goalie. maybe they were playing with a lot of will and determination before but stupidly and doing the wrong things. and maybe last night was the first time they wised up and used their will and determination in a smarter manner. like i have said, it is really hard to determine what really is will and determination.

there hasnt been a dynasty since the 80's, yet ottawa is on track for a dynasty, minnesota is on track for a dynasty, hell vancouver, in all of it's elite glory, is on track for a dynasty.

how about we let a team actually win a championship or two before trying to decide if they are the next oilers.

I am wondering if LMPA has a curse.

ESPN actually showed Lemaire shaking hands and smiling with the Ducks coach (forget his name this morning) right after the game. And I didn't see any of the coaches shaking hands in the line after the game. That is just griffdawg whining.
