    Ducks won last night, while being outshot more than 2-1.

    Man, this is going to be a sweet ass series.

    Not other more viable candidates, plays a prominent position as first line center, team wanted to hype up their young star that they are building the team around, player has shown good leadership on and off the ice in his young career?

    That's basically it. The only other player on Chicago I can see in a captain position is Marty Havlat, but the circumstances with his history with injury and age compared to the rest of the relatively young team, he's more of a mentor player.

    It's similar to Lemieux in Crosby's first year, or even more, Gary Roberts later. Roberts was arguably the most experienced player on the team, but Crosby got the C.

    You're right though, if a team wants to show that they're committed to having a young team, they give their keystone player the C.


    Also, the D&D NHL thread, they reported some guy just for calling the Canadiens a bunch of french fucks. This thread is better.

    If San Jose chokes in the first round again, I'm going to laugh so hard.

    Wings won! Woo!

    I hope the habs lose in four games so that I can enjoy hearing all the fans cry at the office.

    Oh my God, Bogey, I still owe you stuff. Aaah.

    In my pool I'm actually betting on the Jackets knocking out the Wings. Man, I hope that happens so badly.
    2 years worth of stuff, this is our third annual challenge!

    So who are you putting up against my Wings this year? Same team as last or are you going to switch it up?

    I remember a few years back before the Pens started selling out every game, I could show up with my college ID a few hours before the game, wait in line and get a seat 8 rows from the glass for $20.

    Being at the Igloo for a playoff game would be fucking fantastic.

    Yeah, I got to go to a few games last year as well, including the cup winning game, which obviously didn't turn out the way I had hoped but it was still pretty awesome.

    I think I'm gonna take my camera tonight, so as long as I don't forget it I'll post some pics later.

    They still did the student rush for a few select games this year, which is pretty awesome considering they could have sold those tickets for full price anyway. Although I doubt you could get a seat that close, but still.

    Yeah, still a nice deal. I now lack a student ID, though. What I really need is a lot of money or some connections.

    Sadly, I have neither.

    My friends dad created the student rush program when he worked for the penguins. Sadly he doesnt work for them anymore, so no more free tickets to the games.

    I...probably shouldn't have picked Columbus to upset Detroit. Eh, it's only one game, anything can happen.

    Yeah, the crowd was pretty loud at the beginning, and was a bit quiet in the middle, but in the middle of the third on they were rocking.

    You would think so but it is actually quite the opposite. My friend works for the rangers and put together this program so when he told me about it back in october I came out for it. It was on short notice so the turn out wasnt that big, each side had about 7 or 8 skaters plus a goalie. The skill level was varied but still pretty good, everyone knew how to skate and knew how to play the game.

    Trust me, it is quite the experience and an amazing sort of fun.
