Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

your question was worded poorly. you said played in a cup winning game - sergei samsonov played in a cup winning game, he just didn't play for a team that won the cup.

also fedotenko is ukranian

Yeah, I also read "cup winning game" as "it didn't matter if they won or lost."

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

Lol obviously TJay also picked the Oilers. Man, I remember the early post-lockout years when you knew any series between the Canucks, Sharks, Stars and Ducks was going to be a barn burner.

No one picked the WANGZ eh.

For some reason, I thought the Bruins was going to be a good answer and Anaheim was going to sheep.

Re: Bettman Lockout III Thread (aka NHL Offseason: Now & Forever)

WHY DID BUFFALO SHEEP THAT BADLY

I was like "well we have Wings fans, and Pens fans, and Caps fans, and Rangers fans, and Flyers fans, and Hawks fans, but we certainly do not have many Sabres fans."

Failed logic.

This is the one that I was off by one. Hossa makes it to the finals three separate years and only racks up 79 games.
