Yes, they did. Not only that, but WB/S doesn't have a Calder Cup banner hanging in the rafters either.

If they get J-S Aubin back and he plays as well as he did for the Leafs, anything is possible, but I highly doubt that Toronto beats Grand Rapids (unless Jimmy Howard goes down with an injury).

I don't know about the MilAds, Rinne will be backing up Mason in Nashville and Finley has a growing propensity for less-than-stellar playoff performances when the going gets tough. That said, my only hope is Finley gets the Ads through the first round and the Preds suffer, as so many reporters are predicting, at the hands of Thornton and the Sharks and reassign Pekka to the AHL. Then again, despite having gained this reputation for shattered confidence, Finley has played quite well in the games I've attended this season, so there may be room for a breakthrough. However, knowing Finley and his 05-06 campaign, there is a good chance of injury and the Ads relying on a UHL goalie against Iowa.

How's that for a volley of analysis?

Iowa in 7
Grand Rapids in 6 (I'm giving the Marlies some love and offensive hope)
Manitoba in 6 (Flaherty, oh yeah!)
Houston in 6 (Not sure Peoria will last six, but I'm a wuss and couldn't give Houston the green light.)

EDIT: You can have your East, I know nothing of your conference until someone actually comes to Milwaukee.

And Toronto has given GR fits all year long.

Lol, 5 years or so of existence, and they've been to the finals multiple times.

Yes they did. But WB is always a threat in the playoffs.

no kidding? They've existed for half a decade, went to the finals twice and you're trying to sound smart by saying they haven't won one Cup?
Please tell me you're a Flyers fan.

The NHL team that I like has absolutely no bearing on this conversation.

I'm just asking how you can say "Pens all the way yet again" when they haven't won a Cup yet. It's hard to do something " yet again" when you haven't done it once.

I was merely pointing out that the only thing that the Pens can do "yet again" would be go to the Calder Cup finals and lose (or get embarrassed like they did against Milwaukee 2 seasons ago. How they could lose 7-2 on their home ice to get swept is beyond me). If you think that Pens will win the Calder Cup this season, I suggest you edit your post by saying "Pens all the way for the first time".

Why you are getting your back up and taking this personally is beyond me. Nobody here has said that the Pens haven't been a successful franchise. In fact, they have been a very successful franchise with a very rabid fan base. Expanding into the WB/S market was very positive for the AHL. But the fact is that they haven't won a Cup yet.

BTW, are you sure you want to use the argument "Lol, 5 years or so of existence, and they've been to the finals multiple times"? I'm not sure if you really want to go there since the Pens biggest rivals that have only been in existance for 3 more seasons have won 2 Cups while there are no Calder Cup banners hanging in the rafters at the Wachovia Arena at Casey Plaza.

all the way, like all the way to the finals.
I could care less about the rivals really.
The fact is that the Pens franchise is a threat in the playoffs every year, and usually makes at least a couple of upsets, and sometimes (more than once) reaches the final even though it's existed only 5 years.
