Well, even after thinking better of it, I went over to the Hockeytown forum to see what their thoughts were, and mostly after all the lame name calling, their biggest argument seems to be that "the West is better/stronger/more superior than the East. (Isn't this the NBA argument?) Like we had a cake walk through the playoffs, with Bettman's assistance of course...and they had much better opponents. Last time I checked, the top 10 teams by points were split exactly 50/50. So, Whatever.
As far as the D comments, I think our D has played well most of the time, and the PK has been very good imo. Actually, I think our forwards have done a great job on the backcheck forcing turnovers on the other 2/3rds of the ice. We will need a continued effort, but I feel we are in better shape than last year.
"Snow Chickens" almost as good as Chicken Wings.
