NHL Playoffs : Cup for Canada?

The 2011 NHL hockey playoffs has the Stanley Cup destined to come back home to Canada! The USA has had a stranglehold on the Cup for the past 17 years, however Canada finally has some hope in the Vancouver Canucks, the most dominant team in the NHL.

Scoring Sedin Twins

A lot of people don’t think the Canucks can win the Stanley Cup with their two best players Henrik and Daniel Sedin because they are the LEAST physical players in the NHL. The Playoffs are much rougher than the regular season so there is a rumor that the Sedin Twins will not be able to score their fancy goals. So far the rumor is wrong… the Sedin Twin line is scoring and the rest of the Canucks are hitting.

Rough Raffi

Raffi above the RulesRaffi above the Rules

The Canucks are rolling over last year’s champs, the Chicago Blackhawks… literally. Raffi Torres delivered a hit like a steamroller right over Brent Seabrook last game. The hit was clearly a headshot and coincidently it was Raffi’s first game back after a 4 game suspension for a headshot. And with all these new NHL rules about headshots, you would think Raffi was going to be suspended for the rest of the playoffs. Nope! Raffi is back in action with no suspension… Wow! The Canucks must be destined to win the Stanley Cup with that kind of luck.

Canucks Competition

Red Wings are the team to beatRed Wings are the team to beat

Even though the Canucks are sweeping the Hawks, they will have a long road of tough teams ahead of them before they can have a chance at the Stanley Cup… especially the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings have totally disabled the Phoenix Coyotes in one of the more embarrassing series of the Playoffs. Pavel Datsyuk has rendered the Coyotes totally powerless controlling the puck around them like a yo-yo.

Who else has a shot at the Stanley Cup this year? If Sidney Crosby comes back from his concussion injury, do you think the Pittsburgh Penguins have a chance? The East looks really weak as even the Big Bad Boston Bruins are having a tough time with the crippled Montreal Canadians. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
