NHL 2009 Super Special Playoff Edition Megathread

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen-

With the 2008-09 NHL regular season at an end, I'm going to open this thread dedicated to all the post-season highjinks we've come to expect from the one sport that most Americans could care less about.

Whoa, whoa, whoa... let me get this straight... you marked the end of the NHL season by opening a postseason thread for the National Lacrosse League?

Now I'm confused, and apparently so is everyone else here, because they're still talking NHL. Besides, the NLL Champion's Cup playoffs are still a couple of weeks away. :P

Oh wow, La Crosse has an organizational and recreational league of some sort all to itself. Question is, which La Crosse town is the best? My money is on the one in Wisconsin :blink:

My original, funnier post was construed by some as being less than savory. Rather than defend myself against the humorless, I changed it.

Boston vs Carolina: Boston in 6

Washington vs Philly: Caps in 7 (i really agonized over this one, the series was so close last year)

San Jose vs Chicago: Chicago in 7 (Jumbo Joe fails to show once again and the plucky Hawks make it to their first Cup Final since 93)

Boston vs Washington: Caps in 7 (also agonized over this one)

Chicago vs Washington: Caps in 6 winning their first Stanley Cup! WOO!

Hopefully someone on the Sharks just drills Perry right off the bat

Are you talking about Mr. George "Cavalry Mustache" Perros? If so, Jody Shelley will do the job. Jody is a beast, sure wish the Jackets would have held onto him. He can hold his own over Boll anyday.

No, he's talking about Corey Perry... apparently Sharks fans have a problem with him. I don't see it but eh..

Plus, you can't talk trash on the 'Stache. You're just jealous of his stache and the presence it commands.

Shelley and George have had their fair share of bouts... I'm sure this won't be any different

I wonder how much playing time they will get though in the playoffs

I dont know.

Parros played in 5 games in 2007. That was mostly due to Minnesota having Derek Boogaard in the first round. He played in 3 games vs Minnesota and 2 against Vancouver.

Last year he played in one game against Dallas.

I guess it depends on how the tenor of the series goes and what each coach will try to establish.

If Carlyle thinks that Shelley might go after one our skill guys, Parros might play.

I think if Shelley plays, Parros will play, and vice versa for this series.

As either team advances, they might get one game or two but idk.

Although, George has improved his stick skills and his actual hockey play this season very dramatically. He had a career high with 5 goals, 5 assists, + 8. and 47 shots. And he has been playing just about every single game for the past 2 months, if I recall.

I think Parros would get significant playing time in round 1.

If the Ducks advance to round 2, it depends on who they play. If it's Detroit, I would suspect he'd be switched out for Ryan Carter. If it's Vancouver, he might play his fair share. If if was Chicago or Calgary, He would play, without a doubt.

I know Shelley is your heavyweight and all that, but I'm not too familiar with his stick skills. You could probably make your own predictions on that. I don't know how many of the Sharks would drop the gloves and take themselves off the ice if they felt they needed to challenge George. Thats another reason why George didn't have to play so much in 2007 or even last year, because the Ducks had a bunch of guys that while they were important role players, they'd be willing to fight and it not be a huge detriment to the team. This year there are a few, but none of them the best fighters in the world.

I have a feeling a lot of people don't like Joe Thorton around here.

dont get me wrong, i like joe thornton and i think he is an elite player in the league, for 82 games a year.

Well that sucked.

People on CBS Sports were commentating saying that after the Caps pulled Theodore at the end, it was like he was already pulled

boy, it sure seems like the book on him is "shoot high glove!"

Not that the rest of the boards care, but Canucks 2-Blues 1.

We watched the entire game. It definitely wasn't the best of Canucks efforts (looked pretty sloppy the first two periods), but any wins are pretty in the playoffs.

Blues are going to be gunning on Friday.
