I'd think this will be a close one. Malkin and Crosby have both had a year to mature after last year's finals, so I think it'll go 7 games this time. Goaltending will be the difference!

Being a Bills fan, I'm reminded of two Super Bowls in a row that we lost to the Cowboys. No fan should have to endure that...so I suppose I'll root for Malkin.

That being said...

IT'S ON!!

babenwaiting - Cindy & Gina! :lol::lol: I absolutely hate Crosby and the whole Pittsburgh team. He is such a baby! I cannot believe the Pens actually won against Washington. I was sure Ovechkin would of won it!


Even though my boys lost to the Penguins (go Flyers!!) ~ I am sure they won't be taking home the cup this year either!

Kim: In the end, I don't really care who wins, but I'll root for the Pens with you since you seem to be the only Pens fan here. I feel your pain...everyone always seems to hate Buffalo.

techie, you KNOW how I feel about the Penguins at this moment!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

So I just gotta keep sayin':

GO WINGS!!!

Besides, techie, I think you're developing a crush on Malkin??? :D

techwife

Well, I wouldn't go THAT far, Babe :lol: But I think Malkin is a beast and way underrated next to Crosby. So, I love when he does well and think HE deserves to be on the Stanley Cup...truth be told, Cindy does, too...he's a really good player and I don't think its his fault the media loves him. I do find it amazing, though, that with the Penguins down by two, the play by players are still talking about how amazing the Penguins are and totally disregarding the Wings. Not nearly as maddening, though, as when you hear Crosby being mentioned in a game (vs. and nbc are famous for this) that he's not even AT... Its like, I'll be watching a Sabres/Sens game and here they are talking about Crosby! Amazing. :mad:

But I'll still hang out with Kim...I know how if feels to have everyone hate your team.

OH, and yes I DO know how you feel about the Pens at this moment...about the same as I felt about the CANES about two years ago :lol3: I feel your pain, Babe...I feel your pain... :hug:

techie, thanks for your shoulder! :hug: You have to be a TRUE hockey fan to know how bad it feels to have your guys steam-rolled, huh? ... :o (I know, I know, it's just a game ... :dizzy:) I can hardly bear the thought of FOUR MONTHS without a Canes game now! :(

Now, techie, don't let these Malkin feelings overwhelm you ... (okay, Ovie, I grudgingly concede ... he might be *interesting* ... ;) )

I think the Pens will be desperate tonight, and they'll get the last line change so it should be SOME GAME! (At least, I have SOMEBODY in a red uniform to cheer!)

GO WINGS!

Well...that was dramatic, to say the least. Kim, I'm still rooting for you!

techie, like me, with no dog in this race, so to speak, wouldn't you agree that the Penguins played extremely nasty hockey last night? Trying to re-inure Datsyuk's foot, all the roughing, slashing? I was surprised at their lack of control. Seemed like they'd ALL decided to take a page out of Orpik's book ... :mad:

Most news outlets seem to have the same opinion as I do ...

techwife
06-07-2009, 07:11 PM
Honestly, I slept through most of it. My husband said that Cindy was acting like someone was trying to take away his Miss America crown, though.

Meh...nasty hockey is fun to watch anyway. It gets brutal when you're two wins away from infamy. They'll do whatever they have to to get there.

:D Thanks, Babe! That was my Sabres-had-a-good-season glow. I'm the one with the lighter hair with my daughter, Shelley Boo. It was taken a little over two years ago. I've since gained about 25 pounds and all of my highlights have grown out. I have it as my avatar pic to encourage me to get my carcass off the couch and get back there. Thanks for the compliment!

techie, wow, what beauties you and your daughter are! You look like Rene Russo and she looks like Ashley Judd, in that photo! It's SO HARD getting back on track ... GROANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN ... but we'll do it! :hug:

akarl and beautybuff, welcome to the hockey thread! :) The more the merrier ... come back, ya'll!

I'm hoping Detroit is skating at full strength. It does so much for the team to have Datsyuk back on the ice!

Everybody ready? Time for the final knock-down betweens the Wings and the Pens ... so I've just gotta say:

Malkin = MVP:woohoo:

Malkin = MVP:woohoo:

Yeah, I heard ... and that's a shame ... :( He's not my favorite hockey player (and not because he helped beat us ... goes more to character issue.) But I am happy for Henry & Linda Staal ... can you image two Stanley Cups in the family in four years (Eric in 2006 ... now Jordan, a guy I DO like?) As I said before, I can be a little bit happy for you, JerseyGyrl ... I still remember how good it feels! :p

JerseyGyrl
06-13-2009, 01:36 PM
To be honest, Malkin isn't my favorite either....Fleury should've gotten MVP...He was awesome!!
Thanks for your well wishes:)
Seeing the Pens do this, especially in Detroit, is a wonderful feeling!!!:carrot:
