Well yesterday, Pittsburgh got their revenge on the Detroit Red Wings by beating them in Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Final 2-1. They also showed a certain player that he should've stayed with them because he found himself once again upset over the loss.
Yes, I am indeed talking about Marian Hossa.
Last year, Hossa was wearing Pittsburgh's black, white, and gold colors when they lost in the Stanley Cup Final to Detroit in Game Six. This year he was wearing Detroit's red and white as they lost to the same team Hossa decided to leave.
This just proves to never give up on yourself. Well Hossa did just that an he took the easy way out. But in the end the easy way out wasn't the one that would bring him happiness, it only brought him more sorrow.
They say think before you act. Well Hossa did some poor thinking and some quick acting. Don't get me wrong at one point it looked like he made the good move, but in the end fate smiled the other way. Hossa I suggest to take some time this season before you decide to sign with the current champs again.
I suggest go to a team that is just waiting to break out like the Flyers or Flames(depends on conference). Both of those teams have the talent to be future champs. The Flyers have a guy that's ready to become one of the best in the league when it comes to the players. And Calgary has all the talent in the world, it's just it hasn't been unlocked yet.
Marian wants a Cup ring badly I can see that, we all can, but like I said he's gotta take some time and think instead of just making that easy decision. Take some time think a little.
Now onto the series.
Overall it was a good series which ended in poetic justice with Pittsburgh winning. And it took them seven games, that is exactly what the NHL wanted as well as the fans. It started off with Detroit winning the first two games, it followed with Pittsburgh coming back to make it 2-2.
That followed by Detroit winning Game Five. Stats show that the tam that wins Game Five usually goes on to take the series. That was not the case as Pittsburgh went on to win Game Six and Seven.
Malkin ended up being the playoff MVP which I personally really question. I mean what about the man that kept Pittsburgh in this series?
Yes, Marc-Andre Fleury. With all the glory and attention Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby get Fleury has become the unappreciated leader of the team. He always keeps them in even the toughest of games and always inspires them with huge saves and amazing performances. A Canadian has spoken, lol.
Anyway this year's playoffs was rather weak through most part in my opinion, but it ended up alright. I think what the playoffs need right now is the usual Canadian/US final. And if Canada finally ends their Cup drought that would be great. Preferably the Calgary Flames win it, lol.
So to sum up the whole article quickly...
- Hossa, take some more time with picking your teams.
- Playoffs this year were okay at the most.
- Next years playoffs need to be better.
- Hope Flames win the cup, lol.
This is Svy signing out!
