Hockey anyone?Page 47 of 310    (33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73)

Actually the original team that dubbed that term for its fans was the Oakland Raiders - Raider Nation

The term first appeared in relation the the Sox in 1986. What year was it first associated with the Raiders?

My point was, many well established franchises are longing for the Cup.

Yes there are many and of all of them I believe the Leafs will have the longest wait. They are sadly pathetic.
It wasn't an East final. They simply ranked all 16 teams back then.

All of Leaf StagNation Chant With Me..........

Very good it was a West Final.
That was also the year of all the upsets and a mediocre Montreal team won the cup.

With the exception of Patrick Roy it was very mediocre. Vincent Damphouse, Brian bellows. Mediocre.
Roy and the upsets delivered the Cup to Montreal that year. But it still counts. And that 3 year man Jaques Demers. ugh!

You sir sound like a no touch icing, take the fighting out of hockey kind of sort to me.

YOU SIR? Georgia hmmmm...You and Rhett Butler have never had on a pair of skates.
No touch icing ...yes ...there are too many injuries associated with touch icing.
Fighting, I say take out the instigator rule and let the boys dance.

Rangers just won their 4th straight in a shootout against the flyers...... This is getting fun........ I guess it just took awhile till the new players fit in.... Gomez has had an easier time than Drury though...... But Drury is clutch in the playoffs.......

Leafs management-----Isn't that an oxy-moron?
Leafs offense(6th as of today) is falling splat faster than a pumpkin the day after Halloween!

I heard Glen Healy say a couple of weeks ago that Nick Lidstrom is the 2nd best defenseman all time. We all know who #1 is(no Leaf fans its not Salming) so who do you think is #2?

a strong farm team is a big factor in the depth department. Especially when call ups are needed due to injuries.

Keep dreaming for as long as there is no incentive(ie Teachers Pension Ownership) to win in Leaf Stagnation, there will be no joy in Torontotown.

The leafs are popular even when they lose. Always have been, always will.
The Argos are on their way to being the East Division Champs. And possibly could upset the lions as they have home field advantage.
The Raports had the best record in their division last year and look to go deeper into the playoffs.
The Blue Jays are always competittive even with NY and Boston in their division.

Mediocraty reigns supreme in Leaf StagNation and TO!

Why would I "promote a team"?

I enjoy hockey and I am a Red Wing fan. I don't live for them though and I am realistic about the teams I enjoy.

I am from Windsor and all the Detroit teams played within a half hrs drive of my home. So I cheered for the home team.

take for example this team that just recently had this fancy smancy little start to the season of 13 and1. They've now become a 500 hockey club at 2 and 2 over the last 4 with

Wow simply amazing. How do you rip on a team that goes to the playoffs every year when your team is a complete mess every year. This is why Leaf fans are not well liked ..they have totally lost touch with reality.

On the other side when will Ken Holland and my beloved Red Wings wake up and get some Canadian leadership on board. geesh another loss to the Hawks.

Come playoff time Leaf Stagnation will be a Third World country again!

I am a die hard Leafs fan (obviously) and seeing Toskala rob Alfie last night was awesome. I realize the Sens are the better team at the moment but it was nice to get the win

tothemax you asked "I didn't hear you comment on the Leaf's loss to Ottawa 5-1 a week ago". If you watched that game it wasn't 5-1 it was 3-1. The 3rd goal never went in, it went off both posts and out I have no idea why it wasn't reviewed and the 4th goal was offside. So the score really was 3-1 despite what the scoresheet says and 3-1 is a close game. Also the Leafs outshot Ottawa 31-27, they lost because Gerber stole the game.
