when a player going to a certain team (iginla to bruins) shows up on tsn, 98% of the time it happens. same thing happened with forsberg. it popped up "trade imminent".
Well on the trade board there are like six different rumors poppin up. Iggy to Boston, J-Bouw to Detroit, a possible three trade deal. Hemsky is being shipped around, Lucic to Edmonton. Just a lot of rumors poppin' up. I love this time of year.
Wow, Iginla and Vokoun on the same team? Never thought I would see the day, lol.
As a Pens fan I am super excited. But I just think about Colorado when they had Kariya and Selanne and everyone was ready to hand them the cup and we all know how that turned out. I don't want to get too excited, I've seen too many cup favorites go out in the first round.
looks like our only shot will be the #8 seed.. maybe the 7th. so essentially the hawks in the first round.
i think we need 10 more wins to get in.
interesting paradox... if we get in, almost by definition we will have played the Hawks no worse than even in our upcoming games (I cant imagine us making the playoffs with less than 4 points in the 4 games against Chicago)
so if we do get in, I think we will have as good a chance as anyone even if we are playing chicago in the 1st round
i could see Minnesota maybe Vancouver taking over the #2 seed. not sure a #7 seed is a lock for Anaheim. the #8 seed should be a lock for Chicago. anyone but Chicago and i think we have a shot. Chicago has too much skill to win a 7 game series. pekka would have to be lights out. something he hasnt been lately.
