Glad that someone other than me was thinking to make a post about this. I am a huge hockey fan and could not be more excited for the playoffs this year.
I am a huge San Jose Sharks fan, and am expecting an appearance in the Cup finals at the very least. I think our top line of Thornton, Marleau, and Heatley is the best in the league. Hopefully we can get past the first round without a problem this year.
I think the most exciting first round match up has to be the Coyotes vs Red Wings, both teams are on fire, with one being fairly young and slick, and the other being battle tested and tough.[/quote]
Awww man, a huge hockey fan and a huge SJ fan?? And you don’t even know that those 3 don’t consist of their top line?? (at least for 98.5% of the games??)
I’m a huge hockey fan and a huge Detroit fan. With everyone healthy and Howard in net I’m expecting them again to make it to the Cup finals (Conference finals for sure). They’ve been red hot as of late and anyone who knows a hoot about hockey wouldn’t want their team playing Detroit right now. …a lil biased but hey, its true.
What are you talking about. Thornton, Marleau, and Heater lined up together for most of the season, McLellan just started mixing it up near the end of the season when we hit our skid. Don’t start the call outs.
And did you watch the Olympics? All they talked about was how prudent it was that they could just plug the Sharks line right into Team Canada, and their play only backed that fact up.
Detroit does look good, hopefully your older players still have some life in their legs. A Wings/Sharks match-up could be amazing down the road.
However, your prediction of the Avs in 6, which is flat out unintelligent, discredits any of your comments.[/quote]
Yeah I haven’t seen the Sharks play in a while but leading up to the Olympics those 3 never…and I mean never played together. They weren’t even the first PP line.
And take it from a Wings fan… never underestimate an 8th seed we’ve been burned by them way too many times in the past. Also the Sharks on top right now so you’re always going to get heat from the guys from the bottom
