NHL 2011 Playoff Chat

Here is a video to get the Nuck fans riled up.

Look to be a lot of compellig series around the league.


Is this the year the Capitals learn how to play a balanced game and win in the playoffs?

Is Phlliy primed for an early bow out, slow D, injured Pronger, shakey tending against a solid Sabres team.

Do the Habs have another cinderella run to the conference finals in them or will Boston bully them around and make easy work of the Habs?

Will Sid come back and help the Pens against the Lightning?

Let alone the battles out West!

Detroit apparently has locker room issues and not much depth, but they are the Wings, and are always dangerous.

Can the Coyotes finally win a series?

Nashville, are THEY due to win one after almost bouncing the Hawks last year.

The Hawks go 7 wins 8 losses in their last 15 to back into the playoffs, has the lack of depth caught up with them?

The Canucks have a full, healthy D core, but will miss Manny.

Can San Jose FINALLY deliver?

Lots to chew on.  

Should be a fun two months!!!

Getting nauseating hearing all the Hawks and Quenville...."we are the underdogs", "look at everything teh Canucks accomplished this year", "we're just happy to have a chance".

Give me a break.

So still no suspension for Abdelkader for the terrible elbow, eh?

But Raffi will still be missing the two first games.

Lame.

In Wayne Gretzky's Autobiography, he recalls the night the Oilers lost the 1983 Stanley Cup Finals to the Islanders.
It was the Islanders 4th straight cup, and the Oilers would go on to win 5 after this.

As he and teammate Kevin Lowe walked out of the arena, they had to pass the Islanders locker room, after losing the final game. What they learned that night helped make them a Championship team and a dynasty:

"We both knew we were going to have to walk by the Islander locker room, and we were dreading it: having to see all the happy faces, the champagne shampoos, the girlfriends' kisses, the whole scene we wanted so much.
But as we walked by, we didn't see any of that. The girlfriends and the coaches and the staff people were living it up, but the playeres weren't.
Trottier was icing what looked like a painful knee. Potvin was getting stuff rubbed on his shouler. Guys were limping around with black eyes and bloody mouths. It looked more like a morgue than a champion's locker room.
And here we were perfectly fine and healthy. That's why they won and we lost. They took more punishment than we did. They dove into more boards, stuck their faces in front of more pucks, threw their bodies into more pileups. They sacrificed everyting they had.
And that's when Kevin said something I'll never forget He said, 'That's how you win championships'"

-Wayne Greztky, "Gretzky an Autobiography"

Take note, Canucks.  Take note.

I high lighted the one player that the Hawks are going to miss the most. He WAS the Canuck killer. Later CRAPHAWKS!!

Hows this;

Burr and Kes were hurt going back to the LA series, both played through torn/seperated shoulders.  Both had surgery as soon as the series was over with the Hawks.  So two top 6 forwards coulnd't throw a hit, and couldn't shoot properly.

Salo was playing hurt.  Edler missed the last two games.  Mitchell was out.  Thats 3 top 6 dmen that missed time.

So against a fast, deep and physical Hawks team, the Canucks were missing two of their top 4 goal scoreres, and three of their largest shut down defensemen.  And the Hawks were very good, better than the Canucks.  If the Canucks even had a chance last year, they needed to be healthy to do so.

Now,

Bieksa - Hamhuis
Edler - Erhoff
Salo- Ballard
Rome - Alberts
Tanev

A tiny bit deeper this year.  A little more experienced this year, and a lot more focused.

Should be a good series.
