Speaking of the Red Wings holy shit what Zetterberg has had to deal with for more then a decade. Quite a good read, they never made alot of this public for obvious reasons. I dont know if I could respect Zetterberg more but I just might now :o

I read that yesterday. I never realized that his back situation was that severe. Makes his performances over the last years even more impressive. Legend. Up there with the greats.

Its an interesting debate, I think its definitely between the Swedish elite league and the KHL. That being said both are a clear step down. Datsyuk is dominating the K at age 85, he barely had legs left for the NHL. 

 

In other news See you later Quenneville what have you done lately? Poor decision. Wont have a problem finding a job, the bigger issue lies with poor management with the trades/personel decisions lately and contracts more then anything. Bowman did such a great job for so long I guess it was only a matter of time until things balanced out.

Jimmy Howard with 40 saves last night against Vancouver. Detroit's defense is a joke, and Jimmy is the only reason they win a game every now and then. Well, he and Larkin.

Another shit year for the Blackhawks as the playoffs began last night. 

Big shocker with Lightning losing the CBJ.

Wouldn't mind seeing Boston go far, TBH.

And now Columbus are up 3-1 in the second period on the Lightning, up 3 games to none. 

Cannot believe this Lightning team is on the verge of getting swept. Go Columbus!

Anyone watching these playoffs? they've been awesome so far. That Vegas Sharks game 7 was something last night, pumped for Ovi and the Caps tonight.

Always watch the NHL playoffs - which is the best playoffs in all of sports. 

This Columbus Team is exciting as hell to watch, and after beating the Lightning, are now ahead of the Bruins 2-1

It's great to see a bunch of new teams and new blood in the second round, made for some excellent hockey. The first round usually doesn't disappoint but this has kept going. Also Fuck Brad Marchand.

I'd love to see a final four of Jacket, Canes, Stars, and Avalanche.

2 Stanley Cups between those teams...

As polarizing as Torts time was here in Van he was honest, and always gave thoughtful interviews came across really well Imo. I loved the story of revitalizing his career in Columbus and them shitting all over Tampa in the first round what a story that would be if they could pull it off. Either way you're right it's someone relatively uncrowded, even SJ they've been knocking on the door for years but haven't gotten there.

I'd be perfectly happy with Columbus or Sharks winning it. Two likable teams, and after Ovi finally won last year, it's time those Sharks legend get one.

Ugh - Boston wins and goes to the Conference Finals...

Avs score in OT to score a game 7 with the Sharks. 

Hurricanes are already in the conference finals. 

Tonight is Game 7 between Stars and Blues.
