Hossa is like Malkin - I get edgy every time he has the puck on his stick in the offensive zone. It's OK though, we have Z!
Agree. Hossa is also a complete wuss and LA doesn't have the club to initimidate like Boston
does. He had free rein all series. Take him out.
To answer Hanrahan's question above: Lived in Chicago for about 5 years. No one really cares that much about the Hawks or Bulls, unless those teams are frontrunners. Of course there are diehards, but it's not like here. They're casual winter time fans, except for the Bears. It's Cubs and then the Bears in that city. Good fans, but not great fans like Bs fans.
Take out Hossa in Game 1 and get him off his game. In many ways, they're jusy like Pitt. Better D, better goalie, but very similar. Bickell and Keith can throw themselves around, but Boston has an advantage in the physical area. Faceoffs and 4th line, too.
More evidence that you don't know what your talking about. How is Hossa is a wuss? And if you've ever seen L.A play you would realize they are one of the more physical teams in the league.
Rusty is lost and just spews garbage with no meaning..
LA is in fact the biggest team on average in the NHL. Not saying they are more physical then Boston but they are comparable and that is a big part of their cup run..
