I feel so...miserable.
It pains me to think of our rivals, the Pittsburgh Penguins, as the champions of professional hockey; the creme de la creme, the head banana's, the HEAD CHEESE...it's just an awful thought.
How could we let that former MVP with a 12-year-old boy's goatee and the Russian with the ugly mother beat us in the first place to even reach the finals??? It just hurts.
I didn't get to see all of the series (I have a job in real life), but the Penguins were outplaying the Wings in the majority of the games I did see (which were 3,4,6 and 7). That just shocks me. The Red Wings are the big red machine, they aren't supposed to be beaten by ANYONE...not the Pens, Sharks, or Devils...well, maybe the Predators, but they didn't make the playoffs. I had all the confidence in the world that they were going to eat those frosty-birds for lunch. That didn't happen, and now Marian Hossa looks like a total too for a) signing with the Wings to win a Stanley Cup and b) Playing like GARBAGE during the Finals.
Regardless, I guess hats off to the Pens for winning (even though I'm still sickened by the thought that Fedotenko has TWO Stanley Cup rings and most of our guys have 0).
The good news for the Flyers? We're officially tied with the Penguins now for the NHL lead, at 0-0.
Can't wait until the draft!
