Does it have to be from the opposing team? Can the fans vote?

Stars have a good of chance as everybody for champion--they finished top seed in the West and led the conference several times, but having defensive breakdowns and a goalie who is responsible for 1 of two goals will not cut it. Any player can make mistakes which lead to scoring chances, but when the goalie does it ends up a goal.

For Stars to win against likely opponent such as Blues they will need to: get a lead, establish strong fore check and control neutral zone and block a lot of pucks. Sounds like a recipe for any team, but some teams such as Blues, Hawks and Preds are much better in the D zone.

No doubt, he is a superstar and having guys like Thornton, Marleau and Burns around just elevates him. That game was off the hook--so intense--the bodies were flying. If the Sharks win it, it really is a shame that a team the caliber of the Kings will be out first round. Let's be honest, all of the teams in the West other than the Wild and Preds will hand any of those East teams, other than Caps, their Ass.

I just keep watching these games, and fighting my inner nature to want to have somebody take him OUT, ala Philly's normal playing style. But this way, if we just set/vote him out, nobody gets hurt

Which they have proven they can do.

Niemi gave up 2 goals last night. That's a good night no matter what the circumstances. He's won a Cup. He's good.

People forget the Stars are missing their 2nd best player...

Were you watching that game yesterday? I'm assuming you were. Make sure you get in your armchair for tomorrow.

I got it..when your not watching is when the Kings do their magic. Make sure your eye's don't leave the set tomorrow...I don't want to get all nervous, like last night when the Kings made a big push...you could just feel that 3-0 lead crumbling. I only "saw" the 3rd period and it was so fast, I lost the puck several times.

Yeah. Let their guard down just at the wrong time. Another symptom of mediocrity. Bummer. On to next year!.

At least, if you have been a Wings fan for a long time, you have seen them win as Champions--you have that...I've been a Sharks fan for what, more than 20 years and disappointed over and over. The Kings only got their first a few years back after thirty-some odd years. The Blues are pretty due as well. There is a lot of promise that a team who has not won won from the West is going to take it this year

True. I'm a long timer. My age is just right. Got into them right before they got really good - Klima and Kocur 1.0 days. A few years before the epic run. It's been great, but it makes the current state hard to watch... at least the ownership has been pretty committed to greatness, so that is step 1. The rest is more easily fixed than shitty ownership.

As a Redskins fan who fondly remembers the early 90's, I wholeheartedly agree.

The first step in solving a problem is admitting that you have a problem. Thankfully Danny boy appears to have admitted to himself that he has no idea what he is doing. Do I like that? We'll find out in September.

Now back to hockey. Can the Caps put Philly out to pasture tonight? Only if they come out fast in the first 10 minutes. Forecheck, forecheck, forecheck.
