2013: Stanley Cup (pittsburgh)

You may say it's early..


Maybe it's too soon.

But hey, it is March after all.


The 2013 stanley will no doubt be won amongst controversy. No doubt your beer buddies who are fans of Calgary, Toronto, Vancouver will lay excuses upon you... Should you're Montreal Canadiens win the great cup.

"It was a shortened season, it's not a real cup win"

"My team traditionally starts slow and then picks it up, because of the shortened season you're team didn't really win the cup"

" You just watch next real season we will see where your team really stands."

Well after watching the Habs play Pittsburgh tonight. I can tell you that they are no joke. We scored six check'em six goals against Pittsburgh. We must not be for real. Otherwise we wouldn't of lost to Pittsburgh tonight. Then again from a Hab fan prospective, we're also going to lose to Boston tomorrow. Without a doubt we will. Trade Price he let in six goals fan's will shout.

Listen. This team is great. It is typical of Pittsburgh to forget about defense and just go NUTS . it's a cool game plan, because then we forget about defense and go NUTS. This is the team that will provide us with entertainment in the playoffs (yes I had the balls to assume we will be in the play-offs.


To the point of the thread


Should your Habs win the stanley cup this year (which they will of course... I've done the math... 100% chance)

How would you re-act.. I know my buddies would chirp me with the fact it wasn't a real season blah blah blah!

Would you recognize it as a real championship?

Yes, it's a real championship. Bcuz what matters is the playoffs. You can have whatever season (and make the playoffs, even barely), it's the playoffs that will count. The habs are tied for first in the East, so they woudl've have lot of chance of making the playoffs in a 82 game schedule. So its doesn't matter if it is a 48 or 82 games season.

Yeah.. It's true.. To be honest... I'd strap dynamite to my chest and detonate it.

But first.. I'd burn a car.

We'll make the playoffs...but no way we're winning the cup. Sorry. We need more pieces in place.

What "pieces"?

Sure, this team isn't likely to win the cup, but how many Boston fans anticipated their cup run? Or Canes fans? Heck, I'd bet some Ducks fans were pretty surprised by their run. Generally, the team that stays healthiest wins so long as their goaltending is above average. There are no more dominant cup winning teams.

I'll make the argument I made in the common board thread.

The only thing the shortened season will impact is the final standings. It'll be hard to make case of one's team quality based on its current position.

However, winning the Cup still required 16 victories. It is as hard as during a regular season. The Cup is as valid as any other years.

Every team will play the same amount of games. Every team is in the same boat. No excuses.

If they did, then yes, why not? It's not like we got clemency from the league for nearly murdering a team's best player or some ridiculous ref favouring including a historically bizarre ECF game 7 with no penalties called at all when you happen to have a terrible PP and the other team the best. Let's not even get into the Vancouver series shenanigans including the sudden crackdown on concussions (laid by an arguably fine playoff hit).

All the teams are playing just as hard. It's a championship to be won and at the end of the day, the playoffs aren't being shortened. The Stanley Cup is about the playoffs. I don't think many people can say we don't play the kind of hockey that could get us through 82 games into the 8th spot. Either way, it's equal for all teams.

Boy do I hope there is a reason to have to defend this scenario when the Cup is lifted.

Or you know, just enjoy a couple drinks, share some smiles and laughs while chanting.

Every team is in the same situation. 48 games is different than 82, but every team plays the same amount of games and need to win 16 games.
