Yeah, but hockey watchers knew what the Quebec Nordique were about to become (maybe), and there was a history there.
On the Fleury thing, I agree, but I also agree with the decision to ask him to waive his no-trade/no-movement clause. Have to go with youth, especially when no one picks him first overall in a re-do. He got real lucky in his career (but he did do it, and has the experience that goes along with that).
Brian Burke got fired as President of the Calgary Flames, and is now an analyst on Canadian TV (Sportsnet & CBC).
He said this year has been an oddity that you cant predict anything, series or games. No way to know what will happen. I agree.
Vegas has a 3-2 series lead. Can wrap it up in San Jose Sunday.
I figure SJ forces game 7.
Tampa has a 3-1 series lead over the Bruins. Could be over Sunday.
Washington has a 3-2 series lead over Pittsburgh, and can win it at home Monday.
I rolled my eyes after they lost the first two games against Columbus in the first round (at home!), yet here they are.
What the F!!! did I just watch? Winnipeg had a 1-0 lead in second period, then it’s tied a minute and something later, as Nashville starts showing they will take over and that game over/lights out feeling for Winnipeg is happening.
Winnipeg scores against the flow, and proceeds to score again and again.
6-2 final, and now Winnipeg can wrap up the series at home Monday night.
Yes, I am hoping for a Winnipeg (Laine) and Washington (Ovechkin) final.
Any combination of events can occur.
