Hey, they gave the home fans--and the rest of the hockey fans--something to be really excited about for a while. Now they can get down to the business of properly building this thing from the ground up. I wish them the best.

Shame. I would've dug seeing those unis in the playoffs, would've been a cool thing for their fans.

I was really pulling for Winnipeg to somehow find themselves in the eighth seed. Hopefully next year.

I think most of us were rooting for Winnipeg, it's hard not to when you see how much their fans care about the team. Add in Scheifele next year and they have a real shot at making it to the playoffs.

The Blues are a good team in every sense of the word.

It'd be great to see them get some individual recognition (or even a duo) like Halak/Elliott for the Jennings or Petrangelo for the Norris or Backes for the Selke. But it doesn't matter. This team doesn't have any flashy superstars, and it's worked just fine. The playoffs are another beast, and we'll see if the formula holds up.

*Blues get swept in the first round by the house team*

*Nobody notices*

Canucks beg Canucks fans not to burn things down again, just to be on the safe side.


But the rioters weren't celebrating so this is all a pointless exercise.

and Ken Hitchcock made freaking Steve Mason look good. It's almost like his system is designed to prevent goals from being scored or sumpin.


Speaking of Ken Hitchcock, that's so Blue Jacketsy to hire a guy who uses a system illequipped for the post-lockout NHL, and then fire him just as his style of play begins to work again. Fire Howson.



Ken Hitchcock's Blues do not utilize the same system his Stars, Flyers and even Blue Jackets teams. Everyone can keep assuming it's an outdated and now back in trap, but it's not. Watch the games and stop getting caught up in the fact that the Blues don't have a 30-goal scorer and are beating your favorite team, and you'll see it.

Sound defense does NOT mean it's a boring trap. The Blues scored 4-goals last night for pete's sake. The Blues play tight defense which creates chances off of turnovers. And when they have the puck, they play a possession game. That's not a trap.

For what it's worth, I don't care if it were a trap, it's still successful hockey. But it bothers me that every team the Blues beat a team their fans complain about how boring the Blues are. Hitchcock re-invented himself and his style of play, and it's a very smart one.

I never used the word "trap". When he coached in Columbus the Blue Jackets never employed a trap.

I miss Hitchpuck. At least under Hitchcock, the Jackets had an identity.

The Canucks win Game 7 and the result would have been the same.

And therein lies the flaw in your logic. The Canucks cannot win Game 7. It goes against their constitution and nature.

I was reffering to more than just your last post. I was reffering to a large number of Blackhawks fans who can't get enough of talking about the Canucks.

It's called a rivalry, and besides, there are plenty of Canucks who do the exact same thing.

Flames just looked so tired tonight, no way they could generate anything. Credit the Kings, played the perfect Darryl Sutter game.

A night of no 3 point games is good, still sucks the Flames couldn't get a win.

We're not done yet!

As much as I loathe the Flames, a part of me wants them to make the playoffs this year.

Corey Perry did not deserve that goal. That was a horrible call by the officials and should be taken away. That puck was no where close to going in the net and then after the puck hits the OUTSIDE of the net Dan Boyle slides and knocks the net off the morring trying to stop the shot. That was a horrible call by the on-ice officials and there is no way that the NHL should allow a puck that isn't going in the net and has no chance to go in the net, to be a goal because a guy knocks off the net trying to stop the shot after the shot hits the outside of the net. Pathetic officiating on the ice, and pathetic call from Toronto who didn't reverse the call. So now, all you have to do is hit the outside of the net for it to be called a goal? Brilliant! Just friggin' brilliant!

Wouldn't that still have been a penalty shot? Penalty shots on empty nets are automatic goals.

Exactly.

And plus there was less than 8 seconds left and if a faceoff was awarded, it was in the San Jose end. It's not like the goal mattered anyways.
