Too bad about Columbus. I thought they had a lot of character and charm this year and I'll have to resent them starting next season. ******* LIARpold and his shameless bounty limping in.

Also, Nieuwendyk is out in Dallas. Replaced by former Red Wings assistant Jim Nill. I'm a little surprised.

Feels like the Rags and Caps play every year and I can't remember who won in a particular year since the winner always loses the next round.

Damn, looked it up and it's the 4th time in 5 seasons these teams face each other in the 1st or 2nd round and the winner of the series has lost the next round each time.

Expect the Blue to beat the Kings despite being owned by them the last year or two. Quick looks like a guy that rushed back from injury way too fast. He's just been off all year and Elliot started showing a pulse after being one of the worst goalies in the league for the first 35 games of the season.

I'm glad the Rangers and Caps are playing each other in the 1st round. The two "hot" teams can go burn each other.

Also big ups to the Flyers, with their win today they jumped 3 teams and knocked themselves out of the top 10. Great time to start a 4-game win streak, from top 5 pick to out of the top 10.

Speaking of Flyers, rumor about Thomas wanting to play for them next season. I dunno if that's good or bad since Thomas has been off hockey for a year, but he's an INCREDIBLE goalie who can get them a cup if he still has it.

Big McLargehuge 04-28-2013 01:01 AM

Tim Thomas on the Flyers would be the most vile, despicable combination possible. I almost want to hate it just so everyone hates the Flyers again.

Waffle Fries 04-28-2013 01:06 AM

Haha I didn't think it was possible for me to dislike the Flyers more than I already do, but Tim Thomas in that jersey would definitely accomplish that.

66-29-33 04-28-2013 01:09 AM

Pens own Thomas, he does not look that great against us, even under a good defensive Bruins team.

Thomas+Cooke?:laugh:

Tomorrow's game has the following implications:

-If Ottawa wins in regulation, OT or SO, they play Montreal, Boston drops down to play Toronto, and we play the Islanders.

-If Boston wins in regulation, they play the Isles, Montreal plays Toronto, and we play the Sens.

-If Boston wins in OT or SO, they play the Sens, Montreal plays Toronto, and we play the Isles.

So the better odds are we're playing the Isles since the only way that doesn't occur is if Boston wins in regulation. But then again, the division title and 2nd seed is on the line, so Boston's going to come out hard and very well could win it in regulation.

66-29-33 04-28-2013 01:31 AM

Boston needs to win in OT tomorrow, i want the Isles although i'm fine with Sens aswell. Don't care who we play, every team should be afraid of the Pens, not us afraid of everyone. Pens are the most stacked team in the East, 2nd in NHL (Hawks are ahead, but we got better top end talent). I think this team would take Isles or Sens in 5, 6 if their goalie stands on his head. Pens SHOULD be the hungriest team in the East to win it all, we just added a few guys to our roster who are desperate for a cup and will do anything to get 1, stuff like that fuels teams.

The Bruins defensive system allowed Thomas to be effective by playing way out in front of the net. He'd get ripped apart playing behind the Flyers' defense.

KaylaJ 04-28-2013 02:31 AM

I'm guessing Lehner & Khudobin would be really happy if they didn't have to make as many saves as they did the last time the Sens & Bruins met.


Also thankful this is a night game and not some 11am central starter.

deakka 04-28-2013 02:33 AM

Seeing Flyers going on a 4 game winning streak in the end and leap-frogging 3 teams in the standings with the last win is just gold :)

Now lets just hope they dont win the lottery and theyll dont even pick in the top 10 :D

Anaheim/Detroit will be ****ing war

The Flyers have Bryz signed long term and Mason just signed a new contract. Rumors are that Flyers management do not want to buyout Bryzgalov this year.

Thomas can say he wants to play for them all he wants, but the chances of it happening are very slim.

Me too. Caps match up well against them as well.

No Marc Staal really hurts them if he doesn't return.

The amount of "fail" attached to that team has become beyond laughable.

Shrimper 04-28-2013 08:52 AM

Apparently there's rumours of Thomas wanting to go to the Flyers :laugh:

Darth Vitale 04-28-2013 10:49 AM

You don't say? I've heard that somewhere before... trying to place it. ;)
