I agree that faceoff stats are a bit overrated. When the penguins won the cup in 2009 the had a percentage of 49.1 good for 19th in the league. However i dont know their percentage during those playoffs. I am sure a solid regular season record can be had with mediocre faceoff percentage, but, can a winning playoff run be had as well?

They almost made the finals last year with dd. I believe price going down was ultimately what brought the habs down. Only a goalie can make or break a team. Surely, many past cup winners have had some individually marginal players. Im not a huge fan of dd, i still think a cup could be won with him.

Hammered that guy. Kept hammering even when the bruin was on his knees. Then the bruin was bitching at weise in the box. From what it seemed weise told him in not so many words, you guys get no quarter from me. Or thats what i hope he said.

Bruins are like the pals. They wanna fight all the time, but when they start to get hammered its whine and cry and lie like a typical bully who cant understand that some folks hit back. Good on weise.

Im not crazy about the advertising either. However, you said screw capitalism. That was an all encompassing statement and as someone who works hard and appreciates being rewarded and judged on my efforts i felt the need to defend capitalism in general. Go habs.

The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of its miseries.” -Winston Churchill, Former British Prime Minister “We have been ruled by men who live by illusions … the illusion that there is some other way of creating wealth than hard work and satisfying your customers.” -Margaret Thatcher, Former British Prime Minister

One of the more interesting articles I've read on this site. Long live capitalism, because without it, there is no nhl.
