It wasn't difficult at all. It was well known in hockey circles that they were soft. They were lucky to make it to the finals against Beantown. Like the Flames, who went to the cup final against Tampa, they should have realized it was a fluke. In the Nucks case, they probably did but their fans were stupid enough to believe they would be back the following year

That's their choice... They can always play in the Swedish leagues or get a job in the pickled herring factory I suppose.

Fact is, they came to the NHL because that's where the money is

That's a great accomplishment, but they couldn't close the deal on the Cup at the end of the day

The sisters would jump at the chance to win a cup. Just about every player says they only want play where are. It's great public relations.

Unfortunately for the sisters, any serious cup contender wouldn't want them

What's the average tenure? 8-10 years at the most? I don't see the Sedins as being anyone's fools and I would guess after 18 years, they'll never NEED another job for financial purposes. J.M.H.O.

Boston really embarrassed themselves last night falling 6-1 to a mediocre Canuck lineup that was backed by a decent performance from Anders Nilsson; in fairness the Bruins never quit but neither could they generate any consistency.

Yep, two stellar games in the past week. We just have to be careful we don't jinx them for the playoffs.

Capitals forward calls fans racial taunts 'disgusting' - StarTribune.com






Washington Capitals right wing Devante Smith-Pelly (25) argues with Chicago Blackhawks fans from the penalty box during the third period of an NHL hockey game Saturday, Feb. 17, 2018, in Chicago.


Media reported that those naughty fans were ejected and nothing further happened.

Heck, I'm a life long Habs fan and we don't destroy anything unless we win.

It may have been partly due to the arena being close to the centre of the drug scene, but for whatever reason there's definitely no excuse for that bull shit.

I've always liked the Habs - they are just in a temporary slump, happens to the best of them. Pay no mind to Putz, he's a loser!

I'm not surprised, given your complete lack of hockey knowledge.
