My Penguins just made the playoffs (yikes that was close)! I was thinking that given all the Hockey fans we have here at M/S that a playoff pool might be fun.

I never do the NCAA pools because I don't know anything about basketball (and my Pitt always blows it anyway). I know a little more about Hockey!

The last regular season games are on April 12. I imagine that the playoffs would start April 16 or so. Here's a link to the current match ups (subject to change): http://www.nhl.com/standings/playoffmatchup20082009.html?navid=NAV|STN|Plyf

So, anyone interested?

Jim

Thanks for thinking of me Jim, but given that my team hasn't been blessed with a Stanley Cup since I was 10-11, I've forgotten how to root for the good guys. Unless of course we are talking about Team Canada versus Team USA, then its a no brainer! Eh? grin

Good luck with the others!

Jim

Mike,

the Ducks are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. 2 games left with 3 teams battling for the last 2 spots. The Kings are with my Mapleleafs dusting off the golf clubs.

Keep your fingers crossed

Thanks for the responses! Looks like we have enough guys to have a good competition. Hopefully more will join, pass the word!

Geeders (Jim): your team doesn't have to be playing to participate, but I understand if it rubs salt in the wound :-)

Trucker51 (Mark): OMG is that funny! I'm in tears! The Hanson brothers from Slapshot dubbed in French. Hilarious! That movie was filmed just an hour away in Johnstown, PA. My favorite line (referring to the Hanson brothers): "They brought their TOYS!" lol

Here's a promo video that gives me chills. There's actually a better one that includes the "Ice Bowl" from Buffalo, but I can't find it online: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uem2i0CDL04

And I can't resist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4-G-1G_oGY&feature=related

I'll look for a way we can do an electronic bracket. If anyone has ideas, please let me know!

Jim

Mike;

you are an honourary Canadian in my books... There is a rule about putting the "u"s back in words to maintain your status...

colour, labour, and the such...

Also, when they drop the puck at the begining of a period or after a goal it is done at "Centre ice" not "Center ice"...

~~~~ My Oilers didn't make it again... GAWD I miss my early 20's when they won 5 in 7 years ... I can almost empathise with a Leaf's fan ;-)

I'm in... Will I lose my citizenship if I cheer for the Bruins ? as I did as a kid, when Gerry Cheevers was in net ???

Love you guys, Wes

Hi, all hockey fans.

Well it's that Irishmoose again, I'll have to take the Bruins, anyday. But down here in the Texas boonies I don't get or read papers nor do I watch TV much.

But I was born and brought up in Boston, I lived there until I was 14. So there is where my favorite is from.

So once again I seem to be in odds with my Canadian brothers. (Remember about Bush)?

So be careful who you wish wins. The Canadians or the Americans.
But beware of a Irishmoose and road rage on cars from Canada if they win. I'm crusing the Texas roads in my redneck pickup.

May the best team win my brothers.

Heal well all.

Pete (Irishmoose)

Well to all those out there that picked Vancouver over St Louis and Boston over Montreal give yourselves a point for each correct pick and a hearty hand clasp. I did hehehe.

So far so good for me!!

And Mike, Your Ducks are showing an unpredicted defiance to go down easily...

Those ducks will surely go down soon... Maybe some Orange sauce will to the trick, it's the only way I can tolerate Ducks...

Besides the rest of the playoffs are to determine who will lose in 6 to the Bruins for Lord Stanley's Cup ;-)

I can't wait for them to Interview the ol' Bruins of the 60's and 70's for thier take on this generation's Bruins ; Wonder what Johnny (Pie) Mckenzie, Johnny Bucyk, and Derek Sanderson will have to say ? Do I date myself in wondering what these ol' bruins will say :-)

As I recall, the Hartford team at one time played in Houston in the WHA, back when Gordie Howe came out of retirement to play with his sons there. Then they moved to Hartford when the WHA folded.

One of the greatest hockey games I ever watched was the last season that the Jets were in Winnepeg. They played the Red Wings in the playoffs and won a game in their own building. The crowd was incredibly loud. The game is on Youtube in its entirety.

Go Avs!!! First pick in the draft!!!

A couple of definitions from the Urban Dictionary...

Canuck
A term for Canadians like "Yankee" to Americans. Comes from a WWI comic book called "Johnny Canuck" a Canadian soldier in the war. Also the name of Vancouver's NHL team
Usage: Canucks Rule!

Canuck
A person from a country that did burn down the American White house. This country also invented the telephone.

Hi Mike:

My first passport in 1973 said "A Canadian Citizen is a British Subject" It no longer says that.

And at the time your first White House was burned down, we were British. grin

Jim,

We decided not to be anybodies subjects 200 years before you got your bloody passport.
Also we have kicked their butts and saved their asses twice. We are the only reason they don't speak German in old England today.

GO DUCKS!!

bubbles,

Denial and apeasement of the true facts by the british government were way we had had to fight Hilter in the first place. Remember Prime minister Chamberland?

Go Ducks!!

I like to multi-task, so I'm sure there'd be a link between WWII and hockey if I looked hard enough wink

Damn Blackhawks mad

HI TO ALL MY CANADIAN BROTHERS/FRIENDS.

i DON'T KNOW WHO IS STILL IN THE FIGHT FOR THE STANLEY CUP.

BUT I SURE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT FOR TURNING OVER THEIR CANADIAN AIR FORCE BASE, ZWEIBRUCKEN, WEST GERMANY TO THE US AIR FORCE BACK IN '72. AS WE HAD THE ONLY usaf BASE WITH A HOCKEY RINK.

A BIT OF COLD WAR HISTORY.

HEAL WELL MY CANADIAN BROTHERS/FRIENDS.

Pens won in OT last night. Another awesome game on both sides, wow. Pens up over Caps 3-2 (have won 3 straight).

Game 6 Monday night in Pit. Will it be even more intense? Yikes!

Few, Bruins just won, we're not going down that easy.

I gotta say, how great is this playoff series. All the series are at 3-2 and everybody has a very realistic shot at the cup.

Pens SLAM the Caps 6 - 2. Crosby on fire. Fleury makes incredible saves (like on Oveckin's break away in the 1 st period). I expected a tight, intense game. The blow out was a relief!

Bring on them Bruins (yes Ryan, I am talking to you!).

Jim

Pens explode for 7 goals and beat the 'canes 7 - 4! Malkin with a hat trick and a SICK third goal (http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/recap?gameId=290521016).

Not much posting here now that we are in the final four...

Last I saw a hockey game on cable in Colorado it was on Comcast channel 73 or 74. Now that our Avs have gone back to the drawing board there has been little hockey available on the tube. It may be on ESPN 2 or maybe on channel 25 also. Or you may have to find the nearest sports bar though watch-out for a conflict with Nugget's or Rockies games. If you are willing to pay the big money just about anything is available on pay-per-view or as part of a package deal too.

Look here: http://www.nhlnetwork.com/ or some Red Wings fan group is simulcasting their games on the internet too. Look up Red Wings on Google for a link to their broadcast. The NHL Network is on Direct TV Channel 215 if you have their dish. (Just checked-out the above site, and they have a live audio-only feed of the Red Wings game #4 going right now, though the site says that the game is also on NBC today).

Let's pray that the Laker's swiftly dispatch our Nugget's so that they don't conflict with our Rockies games.

Ryan,

Wow, that would be great! The first was in Buffalo with the pens/sabres. I wish I could have been there! This is a promo video that includes some Classic footage. Just gives me chills (I should post it under Depression Busters!).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DecjV0axss

The finals will be intense. The Pens are very well balanced (big surprise is their D!), but the Wings are a Machine. No four game sweep here for sure!

Go Pens!

Jim

The best hockey game that I ever saw in person in my life was a regular season contest between the Red Wings and the Penguins at old Olympia Stadium in Detroit in the Fall of 1975. The Wings won 3 to 1 and the game was marred by several bench-clearing brawls. This was back in the day of Polonich and Maloney. The best hockey game that I ever saw on TV was the Winnipeg Jets beating-up on the poor Red Wings in a playoff game in Winnipeg the last season that the Jets were in Winnipeg before moving to Phoenix. This game is on YouTube in its entirety (in several parts). A close second would be Edmonton's home victories against the Islanders the first season that the Oiler's won the Stanley Cup. Our Denver Avs used to play exciting hockey, and someday may yet again. The beginning of their downfall was Claude Lemiuex running that Red Wings player into the boards by the players bench in 1996. That 1997 game that I posted links to was where the Wings got even.

Everyone knows that the Lakers moved from Milwaukee, back when Kareem was known as Lew Alcindor. Hard to believe that our Nuggets lasted as long as they did against the Lakers meat grinder.

Thanks Jim!

What a game, series, & season!

It's funny, in our original pool I had the Red Wings beating the Bruins for the cup. Oh ye of little faith! lol!!

I was looking at the stats for this thread:

Replies: 91; Views: 3453 WOW!

Hockey is one of those few "pure" sports. Talent doesn't win anything without hard work, determination & team work! Hmmm, maybe a lesson there for Recovery?

Crosby wasn't spectacular in Game 7 and was hurt in the second period. But no doubt they wouldn't be in this game (or in the playoffs) without him. Malkin helped a little as well smile Fleury was awesome too, and Staal's defensive play key for sure. And of course, Maxime who???

I have to post this video (FYI - Crosby is only 21...)

Good luck next season!

Jim,


Just keep things in prepective. When the Lakers take the championship in the next game or two. It will be there fifteen championship. 2 and a half time more then your almigthy steelers.
The Lakers are one of the best sports year in year out.

Oh well, maybe next year. Congrats to the Pen's fans. I'll bet that I can get tickets pretty easy for an Avs-Pen's matchup at the Pepsi Center here. Or we have minor-league hockey 5 miles away that is somewhat less expensive too.

This was a pretty popular thread 2 years ago. Any hockey fans still around? Or new members into the sport?

My Pens beat the Kings in SO last night. We have been decimated with injuries (O and D), yet lead the league in points...

What's up with the Flyers? Can Jagr actually play at this level through the playoffs??? Oh my...

Allen,

It is very sad when "off-topic" becomes "on-topic." Sigh...

I am very aware of Theo Fleury, and SO admire him for speaking up.
