No crying here. Just pointing out the obvious. Phoenix, outside of Smith, is not a fun team to watch. At all. I hate Nashville and the way they play, but even Nashville was letting loose a bit and taking chances in that series. Phoenix just kept plugging on. Phoenix makes Nashville look like a team that plays run and gun and flies by the seat of their pants. SO reminds me of watching hockey in the dead-puck era.
To be fair, I'm not saying how they play is not effective. Pretty damn obvious it works, as they are playing for the WCF. Hell, when my beer league team had seven guys the other night, we played just like Phoenix. But it's not entertaining. It's not fun to play, it's not fun to watch, and it's not fun to play against. Sucks the life out of the game, literally.

And the people calling this trap hockey obviously haven't watched a single ****ing game all playoffs. Damn, just look at game 4 for LA with 1:30 left... their forecheck was still tenacious. Really fun to watch.
Happy Phoenix won, didn't want to wait for our opponent. Mike smith and vrbata scare me. If we can get into smiths head like we did Elliott and brown can put vrbata on his back with some big hits, I think we can take this in 5 maybe 6. Go kings!!
