OT-Official Chicago Blackhawks To The Lord's Stanley Cup Thread!
i hope the blackhawks choke on a massive bag of dicks.
Down with the Blackhawks. I'd rather see Montreal win, although they're getting blown out right now.
agreed - go habs. though they're playing worse than ass right now. too many turnovers, bad penalties, a toothless pp, and they can barely enter the zone onsides. disgusting.
The can definetly bounce back. They came out flat against Pittsburgh. Halak got pulled then too.
...don't you mean Lord Stanley's Cup?
Probably... but in fairness, I suppose the Stanley Cup is the Lord's, like everything else.
It is Lord Stanley's Cup, and it belongs to no other. Don't upset the hockey gods... they're not quite as benelovent as the others.
they will lose in the finals. the curse of hossa prevails for the third year in a row.
Hossa or San Jose. Correlation<>causation.
Would you say the Blackhawks are God's team?
go habs? cuz i cant stand pronger, hossa, and that damn thronton
They do have an excellent chance to win it this year and in future years. BUT, as a life long Red Wings fan who lives in Chicago, I must caution you that the next 7 wins will be the most difficult thing this franchise has been faced with in nearly 50 years. So don't get too far ahead of yourself, it is only 1 game of the WC finals.
He's got them winning for a decade! I wonder if he's checked out their salary cap numbers...and how they're not going to be able to afford all their stars when those contracts fully kick in in a couple of years...
They better win it now, because they have a small window.
1. Patrick Kane is a cab driver punching little bitch.
2. Marian Hossa chokes in the playoffs.
3. You jinxed them by referring to them as the "Blackhawk's" when it's the "Blackhawks."
But you do know how to turn a phrase:
Blackhawk’s fans should be just as excited that we stand on the precipice of an infancy of greatness
Your infancy, sir, knows no bounds.
Sharks vs Habs; Habs in Six.
i cant help but laugh at the sudden increase in hawks hats, t-shirts, and jerseys being worn around town.....i'll bet 90% of those 'die-hards' have no clue who denis savard, dirk graham, and doug wilson were - not to mention legends like bobby hull, stan mikita, tony esposito, keith magnuson, et al..
i'm happy to see the franchise relevant again, and have tremendous respect for rocky wirtz and co - though the bandwagon northside fans aka cubs fans can eat a bag of dicks (thanks pasadenablue)
Hawks and bandwagoners is a tough call. Sure bandwagoners exist but it's tough to really get into a team if their exposure is less then the local AHL team. Enter John McDonough & Rocky Wirtz + winning and the marketing department does a 180. I've got no problem with how or why you get on the wagon, just don't jump off when things go downhill.
Wow already a decade of winning? Cool but until the Hawks beat the Red Wings in a playoff series I remain underwhelmed.
As a diehard Blackhawks fan, I think we should wait before we anoint them Champions of All Things Sports, as mentioned, these next 7 wins will be far less than easy, some might say darned near hard. As the game noted today, the Sharks are damn good. 45 shots on Niemi. Niemi can't stand on his head at all times. Today was a good start, but there is a long road ahead.
However, I must agree with cltjr, also. While I love that the Blackhawks are back and popular again, it is also outrageously annoying watching all these fair-weather fans boasting about the Hawks when they did not give two shits through the 20-43-11 2003-04 campaign and the seemingly always underachieving Eric Daze and Tony Amonte years. This new swell of Blackhawks pride is great, but let's slow down here and let it play out.
May the Hossa curse end at two years!
to pick who I want to lose the most out of the 4 teams left. I hold no particular ill will towards the sharks at this point, so maybe it's them.
Definitely not the Hawks.
Maybe the Habs, but anyone who says we're all Habs fans, deep down, is full of some deep down stuff.
Can't root for a team with Pronger.
So, in short, I hope the Hawks crash and burn, and other than that, I don't want any of them to win the Cup.
with all of that, except i have several points of contention with the sharks, namely their top line for beating the wings and team usa (yes i know pavelski is on usa)
Its like picking the lesser of two evils, or in this case four. Everybody loves and underdog, and Montreal is a big underdog. Especially one that is a giant killer, not only once, but twice. You have to give them some props though. They've stuck to they're system and its been paying off. Halak got chased in the first game against Pitt, just like tonight. I see no reason he can't rebound like he did in that series.
But just hearing "Montreal" and "underdog" in the same sentence just doesn't sound...right.
Don't want the Sharks winning after the way they got by the Wings. Don't want the Habs because they already have a lot of cups and its just that much longer it'll be before the Wings catch them (Sorry Cammarlleri, I'm cool with you but not your most-Stanely-Cups team). Don't want the Blackhawks because they're the Blackhawks.
I can deal with the Flyers. I'm sure they'll make sure Pitsburgh knows all about it for the next year if they win it, so they can win it as far as I'm concerned. Also been a long time since they brought one home, so I like the Flyers.
Rename this thread "Official John Madden To The Lord's Stanley Cup Thread!", and MAYBE I'll give a rat's rear end.
This is for any Blackhawk fan....regardless of college football affiliation...
HAIL 2 VICTORS, I'd like to introduce you to the salary cap. Enjoy!
Can't stop laughing at all these salty Wings fans. Mmmm your tears!
every player in the NHL
You haven't won anything yet. Remember, you're fighting against 50 years of god-awful hockey.
Fuck Chicago. I hate the Blackhawks more than any other pro sports team.
Caps > Hawks
The Caps are the greatest
C - A - P - S CAPS CAPS C
Fuck I can't do it, I can't even convince myself
DAMN YOU HALAK
It's hard to hate a team so historically insignificant, but I'll manage
I'm a big fan of the Chicago Blackhawks ice girls:
You know, because it's easy to settle for jugs when you haven't won a Cup in almost half a century.
