Oh and we play a system that everyone hates.
yeah, but i kinda dig your third jerseys.

In addition to oilers_guy_eddie, my team sucks because the coach won't keep the same lines for more than a shift. Man I hate that MacT blender.

or shots blocked...

Bob Miller: "Modry shoots ... and it's blocked" ... "Modry shoots ... deflected into the netting" ... "Modry shoots, deflected into the crowd and out of play" ... "Modry shoots, but he fanned on it" ... "Modry shot, wide to the left"

or

Bob Miller: "Puck comes to the blue line, but not out" ... "Kings still can't clear the zone" ... "The puck is still in the Kings zone" ...

some of his more popular calls.

Really?? .. That would be awesome. Sean Burke is overated. Esche is amazing and if the flyers want to win they should start Esche (who has played very well against the habs this season). If they don't start Esche in the playoffs..... that would be kind of wierd considering he pretty much had a hand in getting them alot of point this season.

Hm, why the Hawks suck... thats a tough one. I mean, there are SO many reasons laying around. We could start with Bill Wirtz, and then go on for a good hour or two.

My team sucks because they are the Flyers.

1) Every year there is a goaltending controversy of some sort

2) Every year right before the playoffs the team decides to stink

3) Every year the goalie is blamed for playoff failure when in reality it's that the forwards don't score (and the goalie lets in just enough bad goals to put the blame soley on him)

4) Every game an otherwise solid random defensman gives the puck away to the other team for a break-away.

5) The team enjoys giving untested goalies victories and ties. (See Scott Fankhauser a few years back as a good example)

6) The team is afraid of Scott Stevens and decides beforehand that it will lose if he is in the opposing lineup.

7) The team seems to enjoy outplaying other teams and then giving them good breakaway chances to even the score, or lose.

8) The team enjoys seeing how many of its own people it can injure.

9) The team delights in playing down to the competition, helping the self-esteem of teams like Pittsburgh and Washington.


But hey, on paper, this team looks great! We can all take joy in that, all through the long summer after the first-round exit.

The Caps:

The Obvious:
-The Jagr Extension
-Hiring Bruce Cassidy as coach (and by extent, getting guys like Doig, Kwiatkowski, Ciernik, Kip Miller, etc skating regularly for the team)

The Not So Obvious:
-Leonsis' learning curve

This one is fun.

CBJ sucks because...

1. Big Green Space Bug for mascot.

2. Greatest franchise victory -- the ONE time the team has beaten Colorado.

3. Because they're forced to play the last two minutes of every period (though "play" would be a debatable term, hence the problem).

4. Boasting players who'd rather collect pay checks than body checks since 2000!

5. Two 19-year-old forwards with no d and no PK skills (actually, we're learning to cope with this one )

They also play Ottawa the next night, so that's why Burke is starting. Chico will play vs Ottawa and most likely against the Isles on the 4th.

Reasons the Flyers suck.

1) 2000 colapse
2) Musical chairs in goal, which is a bit of a cliche now
3) Beezer or CuJo? Clarke = Beezer
4) Flyers injure each other for sport
5) Some players take nights off frequently

Good enough for now.

My team sucks cuz the fans and the media would run Jesus out of town if he coughed up the puck in OT.
My team sucks because half the forwards wouldn't get onto a roller coaster at Laronde.
My team sucks because our power play is absolutely brutal lately! Just trade it in for 2 minutes off the clock.

Nah, I'm happy with my team...

Yes, the CBJ did beat the Wings by that score, but the Avs game is fresher in my memory and was a really big deal to the local media.

Vancouver sucks because:
1) Cloutier has proven jack in the playoffs(other than the last 3 games of last year's St. Louis series)
2) Defensive zone coverage disappears more often than Marc Crawford dyes his hair.
3) No mean crease clearing defenceman(although Allen is coming close)
4) Little playoff experience, hinging too much on the experience of Linden and, this year, Keane.
5) The Sedins can't play well unless they're on the same line and healthy.
6) Work ethic is questionable far too often.
7) The checkers have a hard time putting the puck in the net(I'm looking at you Chubarov).

My team sucks because, since the Cups, the greatest playoff moment was beating Dallas. The worst was losing to them 5 times after that.

Also, because our #1 goalie was concussed or something by a puck that hit him in the head against Belarus..

Also, because we basically don't have lines. I'm convinced that it's one guy off, another guy on. Instead of rotating 4 lines, we basically just go down the bench, 1 forward at a time until all 12 have played with whoever and then restart the cycle.

Also, because Mike Comrie tried to exploit the team.

Quick reason why we rule: We get Petr Nedved for free.
