Smack, earlier on in this thread, Q had suggested that we play until the 2 teams are matched for the Stanley Cup finals. That way, the winner could come and enjoy watching the finals with me (and enjoy free beer)! Of course, we'll play until the very end here for fun! But for the free beer, it was up to the end of Round 3.

I've already started enjoying my reward!

Our Playoffs...
Posted: 6/1/2006 9:56:20 PM
Oh, and to clarify, the finals begins a new slate. Kind of like our own version of the playoffs. So it doesn't matter if you were 1st seed or 8th seed, we all have a chance at winning the Stanley Cup! That means if you're at the very bottom of our regular season, it doesn't matter. You could be the Oilers, fighting for your spot to make the playoffs, and ending up in the finals for the Cup!

Uh-oh, does that mean I'm Detroit and I'll get taken out in the first round?

Oil & Canes: Get Ready To Rumble!!!!
Posted: 6/2/2006 12:42:13 PM
This is definately going to be an interesting series. I really want the Oil to win (as the Canes bore me to death) but I'm thinking they're gonna be the Flames of 2004 and blow it in Game 7. Perhaps, in a way, I'm hoping they would as well just because as a Calgarian, we know what it's gonna be like if the Oil win ("Ha! Ha! We could do it and you couldn't! You suck! Na Na Na Na Na Na!") And so forth. Hence, my prediction: Canes in 7.

First Game: Carolina 4 Edmonton 3 (OT)
Edmonton has had too much time off. Got rusty. Just like the Ducks did and the Devils before them. Their minds are on vacation. Wait! They were on vacation!!!

I love this smackemhard person. He's a virtual quote machine. In fact, I took a trip down memory lane and came up with this compilation of smackemhard gems (there were so many more but, alas, time didn't permit):

edit: I put the best line in bold! Let's see if this jogs his memory


March 22nd
prediction for the confrence finals

nashville vs flames
Carolina vs devils or rangers

sens out 2nd round
oil out in 6 first round or nucks out in 5 first round both won't make it to the playoffs
canadiens and leafs out of playoffs

these are my thoughts not yours

March 16th
hows fighting for a playoff spot? anyone remeber when the oil went past the 1st round of the playoffs or is every one just seeing stars lol

March 17th
whos on top of the northwest? hummm.... oh yeah its the flames. what teams did 10, 20 30 years ago doesn't mean anything in whos good now. is all great that the oil won a few cups but who was the team that stopped them.....the canadiens who is the only team to beat them for the cup at the forum. the puck stops here with calgary. and besides i can't remember another team other then the oil that have scored the game winning goal in a game 7 against there own team....i can't wait for next season in the whl when you edmonchumps get your whl team it will be good to see the hitmen have another team to beat up on

and..

yeah but your werent. hey how about them rush lol roughnecks sure are stomping on them. 14-4 last time i checked. just like most things calgary will beat edmonton every chance we get. god do those rush suck almost as bad at the oil. face it calgary is better then edmonchump in anyway you could name.

and..

speek up your to low in the standings to here anyone from your dirty city talk. whats that? sorry when your teams on top its hard to hear the teams fighting for a playoff spot.

March 18th

you see jack theres where it goes to the reading again...i already gave you spelling and grammer. anyways oils and flames lets see


we have kipper, better goaltending

the dion our rookie d amn is better then your top d man

offence you have some speed but lack the grit and hard work to make it deep in the playoffs

and the coach we have sutter

you want a battle of wits remeber what i said in more then post. it really helps. face it the flames are better then the spoilers this season. thats all i am saying. go ahead and attackj my spelling and grammer. i really don't care. hell you don;t need to spell lord stanley to have your team win it. i said i was here to talk hockey.... you have stopped any comments on hockey awhile ago. it really shows the type of fan up in the chuck.

you know what i hope the oil make playoffs in fact i want the flame sto play them first round. will you shut up then when we beat you in 5 games? how sure are you about your oilers? i tell you how sure i am about the flames son! if the oilers last longer in the playoffs then the flames i will polish the edmonton sity of chumps sign with a toothbrush wearing a dress. so jack i am done with this childish garbage. tell me why the oilers are a better team...

and...

come on rolo is good but he is not a cup contending goaile. pronger come on dude he is old and weak. reggie is way tops of that one. you really think come playoff time pronger is going to be your top d man. come on due his playing 30 min a game the oil have no d. pronger would be lucky to be the 6th d man on the flames. and whats this talk about roling lines? what the hell do you think sutter does there is no set lines in calgary on any night anyone can be on any line. the oil's best play isn't fit to lace up iggy's skates.

and if your better then why are you not top of the northwest? hummm? answer that.....4 points and 2 games in hand. flames are just getting warm.. . your only think the reg season. look at the flames they are made for playoffs. there is no team in the nhl that wants to play us in the playoffs. why? cause they feel even if they beat us they will be to beat up to win the next round. hard work grit and defence pluss the kipper babay thats what i am talking about.

and...

hows yoru boy rolo doing ohh yeah he is already a losser a few times.

jovo is even better then pronger

It's really a shame that the Oil didn't get to play the Flames this playoff season because that would be a true measure of which team is (was) actually better. If the Oil win the Cup, all the best to them but I'm thinking that won't be the case. For all you Edmontonians (and Oil fans) bashing on us, just remember, a lot of us Calgarians are rooting for your Oil. I see Oil flags on a lot of cars here so don't come down on all of us! It's just me & Smack won't be cheering on your Oil for we know that for the 10% that is happy that a Canadian (heck, an Albertan team) won, there will be the 90% that will be like "Calgary sucks, and we did what you couldn't in 2004!"

Sorry, if I'm rambling. Too much

Smack, you rock and you know I luv ya! Don't worry about the ramblings from someone in Canuck territory. I can't wait 'til the finals begin. I must admit I am having hockey playoff withdrawals. Not sure what I'll be doing once they're done and over with. I guess the CFL is just around the corner. Anyway, everyone happy this weekend and enjoy the calm before the Oil get blown away by the mighty Canes of the south!

smack, I've gotta call you on it when it's there. no one messed up but you. in fact, you didn't even make a bet, you made a general statement which, of course, in true flames fashion, you'll never live up to. sorry but you've made this too easy on the rest of us. here's a little bit of advice for you, don't make predictions based on hatred - 9 times out of 10 you'll be wrong and make an a*** out of yourself like you did this time around.

All I want to know right now is if you're gonna wear a pink dress or a red one? You'll be real popular in Cowtown right now with the whole Brokeback Mountain thing and all.

Stanley Cup Finals! Woo! Woo! Game #1
Posted: 6/5/2006 8:51:01 PM


What a game that was! Canes coming back from a 0-3 deficit, penalty shot for the Oil (and a goal from it), lots of calls, 5 on 3, Roloson getting injured by his own guy (and out for the rest of the series according to McT) you name it, it was there! However, even I must admit that was an UGLY win by the Canes, and I'm sure Conklin feels like a piece of shit! Unfair that he gets thrown in there cold but McT's done that before! Heck, Morrison got them to a tie one time and he threw Conklin in for the SO and LOST!! I was always baffled by that but it is Edmonton and well, they don't make sense a lot of the time!!!!

Oddly, the majority of us seem to be predicting the Oil to win! Well, at this point, it's not about predictions anymore as most people are going with their heart and not their gut. Only 4 out of 11 of us got this one right!

Smack, blueeyeddvl, Riot & Sunshine are on the board!!!!

Smack - 1 point
blueeyddvl - 1 point
Riot - 1 point
sunshine - 1 point

Sorry Chiefs, no changes now, or EVERYONE will jump on board with the Canes!!!! Well, except maybe lady_bugg, as she's die hard Oil fan!!!

Good luck for Game 2 all!!!!

Hockey Playoff Predictions
Posted: 6/7/2006 12:58:36 AM
Sorry Chiefs to see ya go (like Rolo)! Of course, you could change your mind anytime and rejoin. Doubt Rolo will be though. I doubt the kind of play that resulted in his "injury" could take him out for the rest of the series but the guy is up there in years (for a hockey player). Regardless, Conklin did F U C K up big time. Not entirely his fault tho. That other goofus behind the net is equally to blame. But, if Oil start Markenen, I predict Edm 5 Canes 3 for Game #2. Conklin? Hoo boy! Well, maybe he'll feel like he's got something to prove. So I'm going out on a limb here, even tho I want the Canes to win. Still time to change my mind tho. We'll see.

Posted: 6/7/2006 11:54:10 PM
I am such a moron for actually thinking the stupid Oilers had a chance!!!! That just goes to show, always, I mean ALWAYS go with your heart!!!!!!! Hell, it got me 1st place in regular season play, why am I changing strategies now!!!

Stupid, STUPID Oilers!!!

What an embarrassment!!!!

That aside, only 2, YES ONLY 2 (out of 9) cashed in today! Congrats to Smack & blueyeddvl!!! I don't know why I thought the stupid Oil had a chance in hell!!!!!

blueeyddvl - 2 points

Tight race for the Cup folks!!! Our Cup I mean, no chance in hell for the Oil in reality!!!!

If they get beat in 4, I guess Calgary IS better. At least we made it to Game 7 in 2004!!!!

Such copycats! First with the "Blue Mile" BS and now, I guess they opened up Rexall for their away games as well! Anyways, enough venting (for now).

Using your logic, then I guess the Oilers are infinitely better than the Flames since we have 5 Cups and you guys only have 1. You see, that Flames team in '04 is not the same Flames team that is playing in '06. Plain and simple, the Oilers team of 2006 is better than the Flames of 2006. Also, you might be able to make that comparison if the Flames went 7 games without Kipper, but he was in net the entire time and was the only reason they weren't swept in 4.

PS. I still believe that the Oilers will make a series out of this yet. This game was not representative of what the Oil have done during these playoffs. We shall see this Saturday. Don't forget, we dropped the first two games against the Sharks as well.

tick tock, you cannot compare Rolo to Kipper. Not even close! Kipper was singlehandedly keeping the Flames in the game (in 2004 and for the whole season this year)! Rolo has a solid team in front of him. You must also remember that the Canes got 4 unanswered goals in Game #1 with Rolo in net so anyone trying to blame it on goaltending doesn't have a valid argument. I mean sure Conklin f u c k e d it up big time and Markenen is also weak, however, their success is not due solely to Roloson's efforts but the team as a whole.

I'm gonna go with my heart from now on. Screw the Oilers! They botched it up too badly in Game #2. It's like they gave up because Rolo was out and left Markenen high and dry.

i don't know why tick tock you always try and try everything around. its getting really old

cuz you make it so easy my friend


but we stopped you 2 times in the oilers prime


huh? "2 times"??? We were only beaten by the Flames once - and really, it was the Oilers who beat themselves in that only victory you had against the Oil in the playoffs.


and its way better to be lose in 7 then get blown out in the finals in 4 or 5. and in 04 no salary cap, a big difference. and so what about rolo, we had injured players more then the oil do now. and there is no way even you think rolo is as good as kipper, kipper was our best player in 04, sorry but rolo was good, but hands down it goes to pronger, and everyone blocking shots to the oil, and guys like smyth. the 04 flames vs the 06 oil would be a great macth up. hell if we would have beat the ducks this year that 2nd round would have been a great one. our record agaist the oil has shown that.


No one is arguing that Kipper is better than Rolli, but the fact that your team would have been swept without him in 2004. We have lost Roloson which is a huge, HUGE psychological blow to the Oilers who've had absolute confidence in their goaltender throughout these playoffs - which translates into more confident and inspired play throughout the ranks in front of him. Now we're stuck with two goalies that could tank games all by themselves as they've repeatedly demonstrated throughout the season. You see, if you lost Kipper in '04, you would have been left with a respectable back-up goalie, although you would have lost the series quickly. What are the Oil left to choose from? Dumb and dumber. In that regard, I think this is equivalent to losing Kipper.

And yes, the defence of the Oil has a lot to do with where they are, but what good is that if we have to worry about the 1 or 2 shots that actually get through? Even though he played a somewhat good game 2, you never know when Jussi will revert to his old form. We'll see what happens when the rest of the team picks up their form in Game 3 whether Jussi will hold up his end of the bargain. In Game 2, he was the best Oiler on the ice.

and anyways what was that about me being wrong again about the canes in 5? seems like i might have hit that nail right on the head. canes are by far the better team, out played the oil in every area of the game so far.


Still remains to be seen. I still maintain that we have not seen the same Edmonton Oilers that we saw throughout the playoffs. If that team shows up, this series will go the distance. If not, then it's curtains...


and turek would have been decent in the playoffs for us. he does have a 12-9 record with only 2.23 gaa. its hard to say what would have happend. if the part of the game against the sharks in 04 told us anything then he would have been great. however how long could he have held us in there? no one could say its one of those things. we never will know.


Turek is 10 times the goalie that Jussi and Conklin are, but he's no Kipper. Kipper was robbing games all by himself - stopping point blank shots, two on ones, going from one post to the other to plug a once wide-open net, giving up next to no rebounds and was positionally sound on every shooter. I remember how frustrating it was to watch him rob Lecavalier, Fedetenko, Richards, and so on and so on, repeatedly and repeatedly. I honestly don't believe that Turek could have elevated his game to that level and the Flames definitely would have been swept or done in 5 games.

no you really are its just the canes are better. ask why the oil are down 2-0....canes win the faceoff battle, shot block and you name it. i thought you at least of all could coe up with something of reason. even if not the same oil different teams change the way teams play

Oh man, you've been drinking too much antifreeze, smack. If you honestly believe that the Oilers are playing the same way they did throughout the playoffs, then you are the only person that feels that way. I guess you're just so blinded by your hatred of the Oilers that you can't think logically and/or there is a massive disconnect between your eyes and brain. Let me break it down for you. As far as faceoff battles are concerned, that's been one of the Oilers strengths throughout the season, but the Canes are also an awesome faceoff team, so this isn't what I'm referring to. One of the areas that the Oil have been neglecting is shot blocking, an area that they dominated most teams and all teams they've faced until now. They dropped from blocking over 20 shots a game to a measly 7 the other day. Obviously this is one area of their game that they can pick up again. The Oilers have usually dominated the forecheck and physical game, but have shown a noticeable dropoff in that area as well. Also, no one is standing in front of Ward which makes his saves that much easier. There are so many other things I could point out that the Oilers aren't doing in this series, but the good thing is that the Oilers can easily fix these deficiencies and revert back to their old form.


and leave it alone dude, mwith kipper we had the cup in 6 with turek maybe we would have been done in 4 or 5....but you give us back all of the other players we were missing and even with turek its done in 6.


Just in case you forgot...you guys lost in 7. Let me guess, your still hung up on that so-called phantom goal in OT. Priceless!


how many players are missing from the oil line up? and what leval of players? cole is gone from the canes and thats about the same as rolo if not mayber more of a hit to the canes. look at what the flames did in 04 only 2 games played with a full roster. tickers your not making any sense at all.

Silly smack, you make me laugh. Everyone with a brain knows that the goalie is one of the most important players on a team. It is the only position that can make or break a team. One or two players out of a lineup can be compensated for, but a disaster in net can ruin a team.


i told z24 the sens had no chance, and i am telling you the oil have no chance. its done its over the canes are going to win the cup.

Nice to know that you were right about at least one series.


so if turek is 10 times the goalie of Jussi and Conklin and kipper is way better then turek, heck at one point turek was 3rd sting in 04......then the flames in 04 are no macth for the oil in 06. so you admit the oil are lucky, heck the ducks had a better 1, 2 punch then the oil, sharks better, canes way better. you make no sense. flames without kipper and under sutter were still destroying the oil


Ok...I'm gonna have to bring in a psychiatrist to interpret this last paragraph. You're rambling and making contradictory points. Let me lay it out for you: If the "ducks had a better 1, 2 punch then the oil," and the Ducks beat the Flames in 7 but the Oil beat the Ducks in 5, then...(I'll let you fill in the blanks)



tick why would someone from alberta care what a bc boy has to say..its a fact that alberta knows more about hockey then bc. leave it alone, alberta way better then bc. i don't not care what someone in nucks area says!


You know what they say about assumptions, don't ya smack? I was born-n-raised in Edmonton but live and work in Vancouver now.


peace i called canes in 5 it maybe looks like canes in 4

Are you gonna wear a dress and clean our City of Champions sign in a dress again if you're wrong? You still haven't ponied up on your last promise.


ps i think tick has a crush on me, never seen anyone hang on to my words like tick.


You Cowtowners make me laugh. Ever since "Brokeback Mountain" you hillbillies have these man-on-man fantasies. Sorry smack, can't help you out there, buddy. You're just gonna have to smack it harder.
<- does that turn you on?


i must be like his jesus, he can quote me all the time like what i write is the bible. damn dude read something else.
