Seriously though, that's fine - I understand that many Steelers fans are fans of other non-Pittsburgh teams (we've had a Leafs fan and Devils fan post here). I don't have anything against the Canucks and wouldn't mind it if they did win the Cup - it would avenge their loss to the Rangers in 1994 (well, I could hate them for that, I suppose - LOL).
LOL... yeah... my wife is a BIG Rangers fan... so that was a bad loss...

And more to the point.. I just always thought a six foot plus 200 plus pound hockey player should know how to take a hit... and give a few...

But that is my bias.. being a west-coast based hockey person...

Don't touch me? Mario was a marked man. How do you explain Mario's back problems. At least Mario dropped the gloves when he had to

unlike the Great Chicken. Help me Semenko, help me Messier, help me McSorley. You couldn't sneeze around 99.

And I am pulling for the Canucks....since the Flames are now gone.

You may get another year or two from him but not worth it if you sign him for 5 years.

What about Kovalev back to the Pens? Montreal wants to get rid of him and his salary. I would be shocked if he was still with the Habs for the upcoming season. Too much bad blood in the dressing room with him around.

I never heard Gretzky complain about "Clutching and Grabbing"

Mario whined and cried because he couldn't skate from end to end without being touched.

Gretzky was small... he needed an enforcer to skate with him. The lead scorer often did.

I would have no problem with Mario if he did the same... but his whining just about killed me. (Realize, I was a defensemen... and always found the whole clutch and grab whine from forwards childish and a bit funny).


However, I will say this about mario... Any man that comes back from cancer to once again play professional sports is a stud... I take nothing away from him in that...

Just his whining about the whole clutch and grab killed me.. YOUR A BIG MAN.. PLAY LIKE ONE!!

Yup, I hope Linden's goal is the game winner. He is Mr. Canuck.
