2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs Official Thread

That means unless they find away to win two games in Ottawa they are done for a few years.

I wouldn't go that far. There's always going to be a lot of player movement under a Salary Cap.

if they don't win this series, i really don't look for them to be anywhere near the SCF again not for a while.

What is it with Buffalo Sports Teams?

They seem to find the most creative ways to rip the heart from their fans and with Chris Drury a Free Agent, and scoring a game tying goal against the Rangers, chances are next year he will be scoring goals for the Rangers especially with Shanahon retiring and Drury being from a town in Connecticut that is very close to the city.

I think the Sabres can not afford to lose him, but can they spend enough to keep him.

That means unless they find away to win two games in Ottawa they are done for a few years.

Shanahon not retiring he said he wants to return with the Rangers. Drury and Briere could still both be back next but atleast one will and that wont stop the Sabres from being good since they would still have Ryan Miller, Thomas Vanek and alot of other good players. This series is not over so people should stop acting like it is.

Argh. :censored::censored::censored:

I need to stop watching sports. This is freakin' torture.

We've all been there man.

No. Not to the degree that we (Buffalo fans) have. Not even close.

Since 1989, I've seen my teams go to the final four in their league 9 times and come up empty. 9 times... in 18 years.

Except... you left out the 2 Cups and the Super Bowl that your teams won during the time period I'm talking about.

To reiterate my point.. no one has had as many conference/finals appearances as Buffalo teams have in the past 18 years without winning it at least once.

Then our coach retired, QB lost it somewhere, good players left, new coach swithching to Defense team isnt built to run, bad drafting....

But, okay, we have it somewhat better han them... but it still hasnt been that good here.

It's been extraordinary. Two Cups and a Super Bowl. Better than Philadelphia, better than Buffalo, better than Seattle, better than San Diego, better than Milwaukee, and so on.

Pittsburgh, over the past 15 years or so, has fared just as well as Detroit, New York, St. Louis, Miami, and the other cities that have been collecting championships. None of those markets should be complaining about much any time soon.

The steelers are still in the five year period where it is not appropriate to complain about the team. If after five years from their championship, they still aren't doing so well, then you can bitch. But don't bitch about them now, it is offensive to those of us who have never even seen their team in the playoffs (I never saw the 2005 Bengals in the playoffs. I had a high school hockey game at the exact same time)

I think it would be healthy for you, Maz, to leave the city of Pittsburgh and possibly the state when you go off to college. I think it would be good for you to experience life in another part of the world. But what do I know I only moved 6 times before I was 15.

I think you guys are misjudging a few things. It is really hard to win a championship. Take it from me, Ive seen more unbelievable playoff runs by Philly teams in the last decade and a half. We all know how they ended up. Ive learned to enjoy the fun of a deep playoff run. Yea, it sucks losing in the end, but you gotta remember, 29 teams and their fans end their season unhappy.

Shannons not retiring he said he wants to return with the Rangers.

I'm not sure why he'd retire considering he's only 24, but why would he want to go the Rangers considering he's having a decent time in Anaheim?

I really do love the internet and all it has to offer.

I'm sitting here at work listening to "Team 1200" over the net and their 8 hour pre-game show about the Senators vs. Sabres game tonight. :D

I love you Canadians to death. I really do. :flagcanada:

I can get as much hockey on the radio from these guys in one afternoon than I can in a month here in "The State of Hockey". :mad:

Rock on Canada.

Atlanta almost feels your empathy.

'91 Braves (lost World Series)

'92 Braves (lost World Series)

'93 Braves (lost NLCS)

'96 Braves (lost World Series)

'97 Braves (lost NLCS)

'98 Braves (lost NLCS)

'98 Falcons (lost Super Bowl)

'99 Braves (lost World Series)

'01 Braves (lost NLCS)

'04 Falcons (lost NFC Championship Game)

The only saving grace is the Braves' World Series championship in 1995. One of eleven isn't much better of a record.....

Keep in mind we do have an NBA team that hasn't even sniffed the playoffs since the turn of the century and hasn't done much in the playoffs to begin with...and the Thrashers decided to become invisible when it was their time to shine. -sigh-
