I don't see any way the Wings stop us this time around. This year's Pens are sooo much better in my mind than last year's squad.

I can't wait! City of Champions!!!

Even though we already knew it was coming, this still drives me nuts. That is just crazy. As a fan, though, can't say that I don't love it.

Wings fans aren't happy at all.....the Bettman conspiracy talk has already begun...


http://www.letsgowings.com/forums/in...ic=58280&st=20

The Penguins just got a HUGE gift from the league.

The first person to deny that gets punched in the face.

Forcing one team to play their home stand as a back to back is a big disadvantage.

man, i had my fill of steve yzerman, and the last thing i really wanted was another helping of osgood.

detroit in the finals is just getting tired.

but to be the best, the penguins might as well beat the best.

last years series is gonna do them a world of good going into this one.

whether the series is up 2-0, or down 2-0 (or anything inbetween) they should be confident and prepared for any adversity.

last year was so close to a game 7 for the yungnz.

this is the year

Of course, let's not forget that the reason the schedule is this way is because of NBC's insistence that the series not interfere with their precious prime-time schedule, and the league pretty much has no say in the matter. But why let the facts get in the way of a good conspiracy theory?

Here's the proof right here, BTW: http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/playof...ews?id=4203658

Quote:
According to multiple sources, if the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings can wrap up their respective Conference final series by Wednesday night, the Stanley Cup finals likely would start on Saturday, May 30 in Detroit. In this scenario, Game 2 would be played on Sunday, May 31.

This is a change from a May 22 press release from the league that indicated that the championship series would begin on Friday, June 5, if both Conference final series didn't end in four-game sweeps.

The Penguins can close out their series with a victory over the Hurricanes in Raleigh on Tuesday night. The defending champion Red Wings, meanwhile, have positioned themselves to advance with a win over the Blackhawks on Wednesday in Detroit.

For the past several days, the league has been working behind the scenes with NBC, which has limited prime time real estate to devote to the Cup finals due to important "sweeps" week programming and the Tonight Show re-launch with new host Conan O'Brien.

The possible change would spare the league an embarrassing, television-created, eight-day hiatus and the competitive nature of the playoffs wouldn't be compromised by an unusually long layoff for both clubs.
Suck on that, Wings fans.

What prime time scheduling does NBC have during the summer? Not saying you are wrong just surprised the NHL can't bump reruns of Medium or Law & Order.

I edited my post and posted the link to a story that explains it all. Apparently, it's "sweeps" week, and we all know that networks will not bump anything from the lineup for any reason.

Figures - NBC's coverage of this past SB sucked a high hard one too.
