The opening game of the NHL's Western Conference final was no contest.
The Detroit Red Wings continued to roll, winning their seventh straight game, in ripping the Dallas Stars 4-1 Thursday night.
As if they didn't already have enough offensive weapons, the Wings turned what had been an ordinary power play thus far in the post-season into a three-goal flame thrower.
Full story: Red Wings dominant defeating Stars
Can anyone stop the Red Wings this year?
I know what your problem is, you are on cheap drugs clown. You make it sound like the 2 kids are the secong coming of Gretz and Mess lol. Get real clown they both might be around 80 - 85 point a year players. If you think they both will be 100 or more you are dumber than even I thought lol.

Does using this nick give you some sort of perverted sense of power? As I said elsewhere, it's all designed to add an inch to an otherwise insignificant (and not so vital in your case) part of your body.

Having said that, he is nudging the limits of his cap with $28,467,000 committed to 8 players next year (Souray, Penner, Hemsky, Staios, Pisani. Torres, Roloson, and Horcoff - the last two only for next season).
Like a lot of teams they are getting close to that point where they can't take on any more huge contracts.
But what he has is quality and, for the most part anyway, youth. I just bet he wishes he hadn't gone after Souray.

Im not sure what your general problem with the Oilers is but it would be better if you just stopped because it merely underlines your lack of knowledge.They will make the playoffs next year without a doubt. Free agents? Lol, you live in the past my friend. Edmonton is well aware it is not the most attractive free-agent destination because players are spoiled and soft these days. They are building slowly with an excellent young core, young d-men and young goalie with a decent mix of steady veterans to help them along. They will be a playoff team next year and a contender within 3 or 4.
Im not sure who your team is, but please try to view things as they really are, not how you would wish them to be. It just makes you look biased, bitter and even a tad obsessed.
I never once denied the Oilers sucked in the late 90's when money ruled the league, just like I will not say they suck now when most hockey people agree they have one of the best young up-and-coming teams in the league. Offer sheets to Gagner and Cogliano you say? lol, as if Lowe will let them go. He has already shown he is aware of the RFA situation by signing his most important ones already. try again Oilers haters.

At this time of the year, one would find average players staying near to the top just becauser they are still playing.
I hope the Wings end it tonight.
The rest of the NHL teams need to look at the model of players that Wings have.
They have focused upon European players that are fast and strong.
The past five years we have seen Europeans dominate with the exception of Vinny and Jarome.

Aside from that I can't believe the number of people ridiculing hockey players on this newsgroup. Crosby and Malkin are 1st and 5th in playoff scoring, but that's not good enough apparently.

Hopefully the season will be over on Monday night.

If anyone doubts Zetterberg, look at the play he made on Crosby with the open net. Crosby is good, but he isnt great, Malkin is brilliant, but not a playoff performer. Fleury is a good goalie as it Osgood.
The third and fourth lines are proving the series difference. Pittsburgh's 3rd and fourth lines cant keep up with the Wings'.
Maybe Pittsburgh will make some deals and get the missing pieces to make the transition.

malkin would be a perfect fit in edmonton, only plays when he feels like it lol. Since he doesnt like the tight checking and more physical hockey in the playoffs edmonton would be a perfect team for him since they wont make the playoffs for years and years to come lmfao.
No free agents will ever sign in edmonton again because edmonton sucks, its the buffalo ( City not team ) of Canada lol.
Did you get your homework done kid ? lol
