Don't visit that site. It has been hijacked. I removed the link so Tater doesn't click on it. He just clicks before he reads and is always getting into trouble for that!
Too late. I had already tried it a few minutes ago(seriously).
Well, actually I'm a little ticked. I know that Rax meant no harm, and in fact his intent was to warn, but really his post was not clearly spelled out. I thought it was a joke or something where Pens fans had written some bad stuff about the Wings. I pretty much trust all the members I know here and never even think that one would post a link to something like that. Again, I know Raxret's intentions were good but if Roscoe hadn't clarified it, I am pretty sure other people would have done it too.
Just razzin you
Oh, it's OK. I wasn't mad at you. Just the situation. All is well.
I don't know how you guys see this as close. Quins haven't gotten within 2 goals of us at the Joe. Lights out.
I saw a post on the Abel to Yzerman site, and it really struck a chord with me. The Wings did the rope-a-dope in game 6. They said as a team (until the third period), "Let's take the best shot that the Pens can throw at us on their home ice, see what they've got, and conserve our energy for game 7." The Pens threw everything they could at the Wings in that game, and it still took a lot of luck for them to emerge with a victory. Could have easily been 4 to 2 or even 4 to 1 in favor of the Wings (if Ozzie does not put a rebound right on Staal's stick). I look for a dominating performance by the Wings in game 7 at home.
Fleury is very uncomfortable at the Joe. Remember last year in the finals, he sat on a puck and knocked it in with his butt. As one wag said at the time, "Fleury sits .... he scores."
Also, for game 1 last year, Fleury was the first guy on the ice as his team entered the rink, and fell flat on his face as he came onto the ice.
I'm starting to have an eeeerie feeling about game 7. Never bodes well for who I'm rooting for.
That is a very nicely imagined scenario for "Jenny" Malkin, but you have not shared with us a comparable vignette for "Cindy" Crosby.
Well, game 7's are very hard on fans. So a little bit of anxiety is quite normal and maybe even a good thing.
Nemo's got a pretty good sense for these things. I feel a bit queasy too, but the Wings just need to play well and not let a bad bounce or the refs bother them and they will win...I think...I hope...arrgggh!
Again, the stress, the worry, the bad vibes, the anguish ... it's all very normal in the run-up to game 7 in the Stanley Cup finals. It would be strange not to have these feelings: KuklasKorner : Abel to Yzerman : 24.% 27.% 12.
It was always easy for me when I was actually one of the competitors and had some control on the outcome. When you play you are so focused you really don't get nervous most of the time. But being a spectator is hell on the nerves.

I love this talk that Babcock had with Hossa: What a way to phrase it.
