I turned into a homer and started rooting exclusively for the Canucks once Stevie Y retired. He was really what that team was all about. Some of his influence remains, I maintain that this is why they are still killing everyone.

^ You took the Flyers chance of a cup in 4 games in '97, bastard. The Red Wings are a machine. They are without Lidstrom and Datsyuk and they still win 6-1... insane.
I love it. Hossa before the game: "Oh, now Nicklas is out too? Pavol's still not back. So I have to score goals now? Okay, no problem Mike." The wings give real meaning to the phrase "scoring at will". I think Quenville should be fined ten times that amount just for the sheer audacity of claiming the "worst call in sports history" after his team has been the referees' darling for the entire postseason and benefited from the real worst call of the playoffs: the tossing of Kronwall in game 3. Jackass. It's one thing for the Hawks to get the calls (Scotty Bowman intimidates officials even from the press box apparently) but to bitch and moan when you don't like one or two of them is ridiculous.

He deserved it.

The Blackhawks are done, they had to make sure to get their fine in.

Oil hire Pat Quinn and Tom Renney for Head Coach/Asst. Coach. VERY good hires. Quinn will definitely get the young guys going, and Renney will bolster their defensive play.

Just heard about this. An interesting move. Anyone know how old Quinn is? He can't have too many years of coaching left in him.

Damn that crappy news. I remembering doing his "Zezel Drill" during college. It was basically a full ice suicide where you stop at every line. Brutal, but effective.

Former NHL forward Peter Zezel dead at 44
By Sports Network
The Sports Network

Former pro hockey player Peter Zezel died on Tuesday from a blood disorder that had ailed him for years. He was taken off of life support at a Toronto hospital.

In 2001, Zezel nearly died from the rare disorder known as hemolytic anemia. Although he recovered, the condition worsened recently and it ultimately led to his death.

Zezel's family issued a statement through the NHL Players Association:

"Peter will forever be remembered as a great teammate and a wonderful individual who touched the lives of many both on and off the ice."

Zezel enjoyed a 15-year career in the NHL with seven different teams. The Philadelphia Flyers drafted Zezel 41st overall in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft and he played in parts of five seasons with Philly, including a 33-goal campaign in 1986-87. Zezel was a key cog in the strong Flyers teams of the mid-1980s -- along with Dave Poulin, Rick Tocchet, Brian Propp and Ilkka Sinisalo among others -- that led the club to two appearances in the Stanley Cup finals.

In 1988, Zezel was traded to St. Louis in 1988 and later played for Washington, Toronto, Dallas, New Jersey and Vancouver.

In 873 career regular-season games, Zezel totaled 219 goals, 389 assists and 435 penalty minutes.

After his playing days, Zezel, a Toronto native, operated a sports camp for youth hockey and soccer players in Ontario. Zezel also made a cameo appearance in the 1986 hockey movie "Youngblood".

Finals are set. Red Wings in 6, if they're healthy.

+1. They must win, period.

I hope the Pens beat the Wings badly. I'm so sick of Detroit.

Pens in 7. Because I'd love teh schadenfreude of Hossa losing the cup against his former team.
