Way to stay classy, Bruins fans.

Twitter is a wonderful and terrible thing all at the same time. It gives idiots a platform to spread their views further than they might be able to, but it also ensures that nothing is ever lost.

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

Me too. In the East, I don't like the Rangers or Flyers. I don't dislike the Devils or Capitals so... uh... Go Caps Go!

In the West, I don't like or dislike any of the four remaining so... Go Blues Go!

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

Here's an interesting one...

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=394742

Nashville suspended two of their own players, Radulov and Kostitsyn, for Game Three against Phoenix. The team won't say what team rule(s) they broke but considering they're two of Nashville's leaders on the score sheet, it must have pissed someone off in a big way, especially as they're down 2-0 in the series.

The Blues are down 2-0 to LA and that surprised me. Especially since I wanted to see the Blues go to the finals.

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

The Preds did the right thing here. I'd rather go see a team that is a team, not a collection of individuals wearing the same shirt. A comment on the TSN board says that the fans lose out. If I were the fans, I'd want to know what these players did that was detrimental to the team and then help them pack for Russia or a new team. There's a reason why there are five players and a goalie on the ice, because it's a team sport.

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

I don't know much about Radulov other than he bailed on the team and went to the KHL. But I do remember when they announced his return in time for the playoffs, there was a TSN poll asking whether he'd upset team chemistry and be a distraction. Seems there was a reason for that poll.

From what I read they broke team curfew and were out partying until 4:00 in the morning.

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

That appears to be the case. I seem to recall the Kostitsyn brothers doing something similar before Montreal shipped them out. And Nashville won without them last night, a shutout at that. I wonder if they'll keep them out for Game Four.

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

A lot of people will blast Barry Trotz and the Preds for sitting Kostitsyn and Radulov for those two games. But they did right. Hopefully they both go back to the KHL because they don't deserve to be on any NHL team.

But who would have thought: Los Angeles vs. Phoenix in the Western Conference final? Who do you even cheer for? The 8th seed team that's taken out the #1 and #2 or the team that has been threatening with bankruptcy and re-location for the past few years?

Re: NHL 2011/2012 Season

A huge "What the fuck!" was rumored to be heard from NBC Sports Headquarters last night after the Phoenix win.

A sport that most people don't want watch, featuring two teams people don't care about, in time zones that most people don't live in. That's the key to ratings success right there.

Ha! Perfectly summed up.

And as Danny99 said, who do you cheer for? I have no investment left in the playoffs. Phoenix vs LA? Nada. The only way I'd ever cheer for the Phoenix franchise is if it were moved back to Canada, as they should have been years ago.

New Jersey vs either NYR or Washington? Could care less. Maybe one last Cup for Brodeur so he can retire on top? Or a first Cup for Washington if they advance?

As a hockey fan I'll pay attention. Via the news the next morning. But I don't see myself watching any of the remaining playoffs.
