Anyone on mynudies into the NHL?

Playoff time drives me mad!!!
Who are your picks for final 4?

Mine:
West - Anaheim & San Jose
East - Buffalo & New Jersey


I have a feeling this won't be a popular thread...last year when I brought it up I think I got one reply.

when i saw the topic title i thought it was about field hocky, that's more popular here in Holland and around here (in Czechia is icehocky very popular i know)... and here we can't see the NHL on tv but i also don't like it

Sure do!
The hometown boys, Thrashers, got raped. :-/. Oh well, first year, what do you expect?

Picks...Hmmm...

West: Sharks v. Wings
East: Ottawa v. Buffalo

Not my favorite teams, but my picks non the less.

I am rooting for the sharks though :wink:

i am a dedicated detroit sports fan - tigers, wings, pistons and unfortunately the lions

but looks like me and bill have a difference of opinions :)

i applaud the flames, because they have alot of heart but lets be realistic buddy theyre going down

tion -> its surprising that youre a sharks fan coming from edmonton? dont hear that much

coming out of the west: obviously detroit, although anaheim has a great squad this year
east: i like the rangers alot but im thinking buffalo or jerseys gonna take the conference

i know nothing about hockey much apart from these 3 things

Supposedly Canada is meant to kick total ass at ice hockey

and...

Australia used to have an unbeatable womens field hockey team which suck now

and...

Mighty ducks is an actual hockey team (i was shocked when i found out)


thank you

bilmaga
22nd April 2007, 19:10
They are now just called the ducks (as of this season). but you are right, they were the mighty ducks for a long time.

cameland
22nd April 2007, 19:20
why the name change? did they get bought out?

oh and were the ducks actually any good at hockey?

tion4->
22nd April 2007, 19:35
They didn't get bought out...they realised that the 'mightly ducks' was a stupid name. Naming them after a disney movie was brilliant...

They are actually really good, could go far in the playoffs this year!

22nd April 2007, 19:51
Just wonder how it is going with the Penguins now, used to be my favourite team when i was playing hockey myself

Legoland
22nd April 2007, 19:57
I used to like the Kariya/Selänne front of the mighty ducks, great players, good skating although not really backed up enough back then. From what I hear anaheim does really well nowadays.
With teams moving south I can't do anything other than root for the underdogs, the canadian teams.

22nd April 2007, 20:22
loste -> the pens got beat out the first round of the playoffs but they are an up and coming team, they have 3 of the youngest best players in the league
sidney crosby is said to be the next wayne gretsky and they also have evengi malkin who i say is the next sergie federov and the youngest stahhl brother jordan who is phenomnal

i could see the penguins amazing lineup getting ripped apart by trading their players for money, it always happens but with some reinforcement on their defense, next year the penguins are gonna be this years clevland cavaliers

I wonder what will happen to Nashville after their playoff loss. They sure had a stacked team, but who knows what will happen to them now. Especially that the fans booed them off of the ice in their final game.

tion4->
22nd April 2007, 21:12
oh ya....same goes for Atlanta, gave up a ton to make a playoff run, and now they're out!

Nashville had some hard luck having to play a pretty strong Sharks team in the first round.

bilmaga
22nd April 2007, 21:39
I think it's funny that the american teams can't even fill a stadium in the playoffs. The Detroit game last night wasn't a sellout. And last years playoffs, when the oilers made their cup run. The ducks were in the conference finals with them and they still couldn't fill to capacity.

Although If you were in Nashville, would you go to the "Gaylord entertainment centre" to watch your team :lol: . Glad they finally changed the name.

Too bad the American teams are so strong financially, when the real fans are in Canada (for the most part)

ExileOnMainStreet
23rd April 2007, 00:18
bilmaga i completely agree with you, i barely get any canadian tv stations because im SO close to detroit, and during playoff time american broadcasting stations rather televise f*ckin nascar than the NHL

and when these goofy expansion teams from the southern US make the playoffs no one watches, i went to montreal in january and those french canadians LOVE their habs and yet montreal sucks so much a$$. It amazes me that expansion teams get opened up in places like Nashville and Columbus, but the NHL had to move the Nordiques out of Quebec to Colorado?

Id love to see Nashville get moved to like Yellowknife or somethin' and have those crazy native bastards go to spectate, then people would see what real hockey fans are like :)

23rd April 2007, 07:08
To be completely honest. They didn't deserve to win. They played like shit throughout the series. The only thing that kept them alive was mikka.

To be almost doubled in shots in those six games is pitiful.

Now don't get me wrong, I am a huge flames fan, I have been since as far back as I can remember. I'm not one of the bandwagoners that jumps on and off. But I call a spade a spade, and they didn't deserve to win.

Imagine if kipper was the red wings goalie :wink: I would def. put money on that team :lol:

Kippers was incredible, but no, they did not deserve the win. I was really hoping for them to knock off the Red Wings though...it would have helped me in my hockey pools!

24th April 2007, 03:26
Calgary just didnt play like a team throughout the whole series. It was just so frustrating watching. Its funny how Jim Playfair's name totally contradicts the way the flames played. Detroit fans probably pity us for the way this series turned out.

nice ride, but i'm afraid the wings run ends here. they are too banged up, and j.s. giguere is standing on his head, looking eerily similar to the guy who basically took them to the cup finals in '03. still, the wings had a lot better season than i thought they would this year. i can't say i'm a huge hockey or even a huge wings fan but still..props.

Well looks like the 2007/2008 season has begun, and of course my Red Wings are off to a glorious 13-3 start. Any predictions this year? Who do you guys like to win the Cup?
Im gonna say the Red Wings look just absolutley fearsome throughout the regular season, win the Central and have the best record in the Western Conference, only to loose in the second round to a team like Chicago or Dallas on account of a hot goaltender.

Bill - your Flames arent looking too bad this year bro lol. The two teams from Alberta seem to fit pretty nicely in the last two spots in the Northwest. Im joking lol Al MacInnis got deducted into the Hall of Fame, was that a big ticket item in Calgary this week?
You guys will pick it up soon, you got alot of vets on your team this year eh? Owen Nolan, Stephane Yelle, Wayne Primeau. I love Alex Tanguay and Dion Phenuf is phenomenal on the blue line. I wouldn't be surprised if you guys beat us in the first round. Kipper needs to pick up his goals against though..

Anyways, lots of new guys to MyNudies this year, any hockey fans out there? State your team and why you love 'em!!

@ Exile

Yeah man, you should def. look me up when you come down. Regardless of whether or not a hockey game is here.

To answer your question, I was born and raised in Calgary. The last few years have been crazy. I have never been so busy at work. There is too much damn money in this city, and the arrogance of people is really starting to get to me. Not to mention the fact that our road system isn't really made for heavy traffic. Before this crazy boom, it used to take me 15 min to commute to work. Now, I am lucky to get there in under an hour.

15th April 2008, 00:58
yes the maple leafs do suck, if you look at Windsor on a map of Canada, you'll notice we're located very close to the city of Detroit (Im actually originally from Flint)

President's Trophy anyone?

So no I'm not a maple leaf fan, I know Bil is a raging Calgary Flames fan, and I wish nothing but the best to the C Flames after last nights come from behind victory. They play a hard nosed style of hockey and when they're on their game, they look good.

Ottawa is disgrace to hockey, but it's not like they don't have talent. I think theres something not right in the dressing room, players aren't getting along, the team chemistry is just not there. Too bad, what a waste of a group of good hockey players.


Anyways, my prediction for this year's Stanley Cup winner is obviously the Pittsburgh Penguins, they are simply too strong, and MVP of the playoffs will either go to Marc Andre Fleury or Evgeni Malkin.


GO WINGS!

Im not going to lie to you, I like Dallas, I like Brad Richards, and i think he looks good as f*ck wearing # 91.

Im with you about Pittsburgh, they are just looking unstoppable, I would be kinda shocked if they didn't win the east/the stanley cup.


But who knows, depending on what happens tonight The Wings would play either Calgary or Colorado (which I would prefer Calgary) Dallas is the 3rd highest seed in the West so they would play either San Jose (if they win) or Colorado.

You have to admit that San Jose has way more seconday scoring then Calgary, that really showed tonight. Calgary is limited to two maybe three guys that can put the puck in the net, San Jose didn't make all those moves at the trade deadline for no reason.


You guys definately had the heart though, tough break C Flames fans.
