Subject: RE: BS: Hockey's back...Are ya happy about it?
Been awhile since I posted on this one. Obviously, as usual, Buffalo fans are ALWAYS the bridesmaid, NEVER the BRIDE! Damn 'Canes have YET to play a team where some key players have been injured and OUT. Witness game 7 of the Semis: Sabres--4 first line defensive players OUT, best shot blocker-McKee: OUT...best centerman/playmaker, Connelly: OUT. It finally caught up with the gutsiest team the NHL has seen in many decades. So, yeah--I'm pissed, bitter, etc. I think a Sabres-Oiler Cup finale wouldda been great.

So, what happens? 'Canes cream Edmonton in the first two games, and nearly win the third (only lost by a still-disputed goal)-oh, golly, gee, guess what???? THEY KNOCK OUT THE OILER'S NUMBER 1 Goalie (Roloson-who, ironically, was a Sabre for a bit!). Who's next? De-capitate Pronger? I believe the 'Canes will win the cup, but to me it will be a Pyrric (sp?) victory. They have YET (even BEFORE THE SABRES) play a healthy team in their so-called "run to the cup." B'rindAmour made some really assholey comments about Lindy Ruff to in his post-game "victory" interview. Ruff did a great job, and has a little daughter laid up with a BRAIN TUMOR, so let's all pile on HIM! GEEEZ. I Don't like the 'Canes...can ya tell? *G*
