Zing!

Seemingly, 40 games is enough to wipe away eight years of history....

And that's the unfortunate logic a lot of GMs use in making franchise-altering deals that rarely come to fruition. Out of the last decade, how many deadline deals made any kind of a "worthy" impact for the Stanley Cup winner? For every one that worked, I can name at least 5 that didn't.

I'm not handing out anything. My statement is theorhetical and pretty much applies to just about any team that makes the playoffs, but moreso for the top teams, and it seems the East is pretty heavily imbalanced.

I think dozens of guys could have filled that "defensive defenseman role". They probably could have received at least a 2 and taken Komisarek off of the Leafs hands and they would have had basically the same player, although they would have had to pay him for another year.

The Murray trade was a joke. He will make no difference whatsoever. Boston doesn't need to do anything to make it to the finals. Pittsburgh didn't either. You can probably count the number of times oon two hands that a deadline deal actually made an impact for the Stanley Cup winner.

And it's no surprise that he leads the team at -10 in only 23 games. He also has one of the lowest shooting percentages on the team as well, so the 14 minutes they're giving this guy is actually a bigger detriment than not playing him at all. Their fortunes would probably change for the better if they cut him outright despite the fact that he's actually been scoring a little more lately.

What's he supposed to say after he made those two large financial commitments?

"I think we're looking at a three-year rebuild. We are going to strip this team bare outside of Parise and Suter and build through the draft. Once those two contracts expire, we should have the assets to make a run."

Good Lord....

Yeah, really. March 12th and you can already hear the calls of retirement echoing in the background. Not to mention that Doc is the kind of pitcher that can have continued success, perhaps not domintation, without the need to throw in the low 90's.

I can't understand why the majority Bruins fans can always respect a good rivalry and yet the majority of Leafs fans always have to resort to classless attacks like posting videos of a riot....

Ok, so in your mind the ends justify the means. If you dive, it's ok if it kills a penalty, I guess. If you fake a fight to kill penalty then that's ok too. Well, if you have to sacrifice your own principles to defend a player on your team then so be it. It is what it is.

This is really just a pathetic post. Sadly this will happen to any Canadian team in any Canadian city that wins/loses the cup, but for someone that hasn't seen their team win in nearly 50 years, I guess this is all they have.....

Except the fact that the core of that team performed extremely well that season and the team did pretty well in the regular season standings, and you're comparing it to an Oilers team that can't even make the playoffs today, so really awful comparison, but nice try.
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
Actually, the toughest team they faced was the Nordiques, which had players like Sundin, Nolan, Sakic, Duschene, Foote, which was essentially the core of the 1995 Colorado Avalanche. You are a wealth of misinformation.

You have no idea what Phaneuf was trying to do, you really don't. It's honestly just as likely he was trying to stall the PP as he was trying to negate it with another penalty by the Habs (when you think about it, what difference does that really make anyway?). You also have no idea what any player that has ever received a diving penalty was trying to do either. The divers are always judged on their actions, not their intentions. Therefore, it's akin to diving.
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
If you can't see the commonalities between diving to instigate a penalty and faking a fight, which is often used to trick another player into a five minute penalty (and I'm surprised Prust didn't get one there as he did drop the glove) then there's honestly no point in continuing this discussion....
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
My point? Jokes! There was some comment about the East being soft, while implying that the Leafs had this brutal schedule, but in reality the strength of teams played was relatively the same for both. The only difference being that one team was having difficulty advancing while the other was winning nearly every game. It's almost like the Phaneuf incident on the comment board....instigate a point and then back away when it's clearly refuted....
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
Ok, so let's just settle this then. Is diving a smart play? Yes, or no?
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
Also true, nothing but the truth spoken here. This also despite the fact that the Penguins and Bruins had the two highest point totals in the entire league.

Ohlund and Kovalchuk?!?!?! Were you not able to find the videos for Wickenheiser and Chan? WOW!
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
This is true, everyone knows this. Despite the fact that the Leafs went seven games in all three series, while Montreal went 16-2 after dropping the first two against the Nordiques, the Leafs would have easily dispatched them. The evidence clearly points in that direction.....Good Lord!
Posted Friday March 01, 2013, About: Cherry blasts Phaneuf
So, can someone tell me what the difference is between "tricking" another player into a fake fight, which usually results in the tricked player getting a five-minute penalty when he drops his gloves and diving, which results in the player pulling the trick getting a two minute penalty? I can tell you that when it comes to integrity it's absolutely nothing.
