    Ahhh..

    It's that time of year again when the greatest sport on ice reaches it's peak.

    My beloved Sharks came back from a 0-2 deficit in the 1st and totally dominated against their old coach with a 3-2 over time win.
    I hope we get a bit further but it's just a matter of time before some goons take out our injured players with well placed checks. Without Thornton and Couture we won't get far.

    @Zee I was very surprised to see the Kings reaction to not making the playoffs. Letting Sutter go is a mistake imo.

    @Willy P can you see a Canadian team going deep?

    Edmonton's looking good even though they lost last night. Lots of jump and a great mixture of young guys and old talent. Lucic was a great addition. We'll see if it pans out.

    Lucic is a douche.


    So here is a new graph to show pick possession.

    Not sure what the dark blue is, possibly indicating power play?

    I'm cheering on the Sharks - If they win the cup, Canucks get their first round draft pick:clap:

    The Kings....

    I really have no idea what their goal is with this move.

    I might..just might have to pull for the duckies right now.
    I was at a game recently and had amazing seats few rows up behind the benches and enjoyed the atmosphere.

    Yeah but if he played for your team he'd be a great douche.

    First time in 25 years that the Wings are out of the playoffs. It feels really odd!

    Idiots... What two cups in the last 4-5 years for kings? Yea, lets fire him!

    Hawks lost in first round last year, they didn't fire the coach!

    Vancouver is looking for a new coach. I'd love to see Sutter here. The management seems to want to go with a young coach, Travis Green's name keeps coming up but Sutter would be a no brainer for me.

    I second Jim on this. Pittsburgh sports fans are some of the most rabid I've ever seen, Steeler fans first, then Pens fans, but not so much Pirates fans. Maybe because the Pirates spent so much time sucking. It's a football and hockey town for sure. I grew up equal distance from Pittsburgh and Cleveland, but the Cleveland fans always knew to keep their mouths shut in public
