Come on Blues, at least don't make it easy for them!
 
2012-05-06 12:27:31 PM  
Indeed. Going into the playoffs I was kind of leaning towards the Blues going all the way, now I'm just hoping that they don't get swept.

Happy birthday Marty, not a bad way to celebrate your 40th.

Actually, the NHL might like that, no? Having Phoenix in the SCF would bolster the NHL case for keeping the team in the desert and not relocating it to Quebec City (or anywhere else, for that matter). I would think that the team's playoff run would help with ticket sales next season. As for New Jersey, it has not been without ownership issues recently, so being in the Cup final would also be good.

It already has:

Coyotes President Mike Nealy said the franchise plans to capitalize on the attention from such new fans.

The franchise sold 50 season-ticket packages on Monday alone and is already ahead of its renewal rate for all of last year, he said.

"As expected, when the team is winning, people like to be part of it," Nealy said. "We welcome any late comers and welcome others back.


Without completely rehashing the argument we had in the thread two days ago, Phoenix is going to be juuuuuuust fine now that they're actually winning. Turns out making it past the first round of the playoffs for the first time in franchise history helped a lot - who knew?

Some of them will, but the team will almost definitely have a bigger fanbase as a result of this postseason. And if the NHL can find an owner, then I think the team will be set.

I'm not doing anything but pointing out the folly in relying on fans who start caring when the team wins. It's great they've sold a bunch of tickets since winning a playoff series - but fickle is fickle, in both directions.

Yeah, about THAT...

A sale of the Phoenix Coyotes hockey club to an ownership group led by former San Jose Sharks CEO Greg Jamison. Greg Jamison could be approved by the National Hockey Leagueand city of Glendale as early as May 8. That would keep the Coyotes in Arizona and allow the team to rollover its on-ice success in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs into ticket sales and business sponsorships for next season.

Jamison has brought together the investment money necessary to purchase the Coyotes from the NHL and keep the team in Glendale, sources familiar with the sale of the franchise said. Previous attempts to buy the team have struggled to secure financing and monetary commitments for a franchise that loses $25 million each season.

If Jamison has his investment ducks in a row, it could result in the NHL officially announcing sometime next week that the Coyotes are off the market with terms of sale being finalized with Jamison, who still is a minority owner of the Sharks.

Not quite. First round CBC had picks 1-2-4-6. Second round CBC had picks 1 and 3. I assume CBC picked NYR-WAS, then TSN picked STL-LA, then CBC picked PHI-NJ, and TSN was stuck with PHX/NSH. For the Conference Finals, CBC gets to pick one and I think they're almost certain to pick the East, leaving TSN with the West.

I_Love_Cheesecake: IMDWalrus:

Jamison has brought together the investment money necessary to purchase the Coyotes from the NHL and keep the team in Glendale, sources familiar with the sale of the franchise said. Previous attempts to buy the team have struggled to secure financing and monetary commitments for a franchise that loses $25 million each season.

If Jamison has his ...

There have been so many stories over the past couple of years about potential new owners of the Coyotes that I think I will remain sceptical until it actually happens.

I am too. I just wanted to refute the "no one is interested" link.

Huh? When did he come alive? He won a fight? The piece the Avs will miss from that trade will be Shattenkirk. Stewart is way too streaky. If he gets hot, he's awesome. But he rarely gets hot. Which is why he's been benched and playing on the 4th line for the Blues.

Because PHX and LA are outside of the Hockey holy land. If it's not original six territory you are offending the hockey gods.

Looks like the East could be a big part of the hold up. Game 7s in both of those series are scheduled for May 12 and with both of them close right now, the NHL may be just saying they're going to work off the the idea that the two match-ups will go far.

And maybe scheduling at Staples? Although the Kings-whatever series won't start in LA, the Staples Center is hosting the Kings, Lakers and Clippers in the playoffs right now. I feel bad for the person who has to make those three playoff schedules work.

The Kings are playing great, no doubt, and win this series at some point regardless; but, someone might want to tell the Blues that committing 4,000 retaliatory penalties on Dustin Brown in a 4-game stretch is not conducive to winning hockey games.

They'll learn and be better next year for it, but I was incredibly disappointed with their lack of discipline.

///Just saw a tweet saying the conference finals may not start until May 14 for some unknown reason.

Looks like the East could be a big part of the hold up. Game 7s in both of those series are scheduled for May 12 and with both of them close right now, the NHL may be just saying they're going to work off the the idea that the two match-ups will go far.

And maybe scheduling at Staples? Although the Kings-whatever series won't start in LA, the Staples Center is hosting the Kings, Lakers and Clippers in the playoffs right now. I feel bad for the person who has to make those three playoff schedules work.


That's probably the case. It will be a scheduling nightmare if both NBA teams advance.

I'd really like to know what Washington's attendance was before Ovechkin came onto the scene. My hunch: pretty mediocre. In any event, as much as I am a fan of four of the Original Six teams (and I like the Flyers, too), I would be really happy to see the Kings hoist the Cup this year. This team is awesome and fun to watch, and has long had a dedicated group of fans supporting the club over the years. St Louis winning the Cup would have been grand, too.

Lol, get outta here with your stereotyping nonsense. L.A. as a city may not be driven by hockey like Detroit or many Canadian cities might be, but the Kings themselves have a very solid fan base and have been ahead of teams like Boston and NJ in per-game attendance during most years.

Dang, as a Coyotes fan I'm never over confident, but you really think they'll drop 3 straight? It did happen against the Blues in the 1st a few years back, This is a pretty straight up match so far & I think that'd be a stretch.
I do want the Rangers in the finals (aplogize for the assumption) because 1 seeds make the season relevent and gives you a bad guy.

I've been to an LA Kings game when they were playing Phoenix, the place was loud. Not sold out, but the people who were there care a whole heck of a lot. I'd wager that on a given night the place is at least 2/3's full. I'd love to see LA do well and get some longterm fans that will stay and not need Gretsky to get them in the seats. And that comes from someone who moved here from New England.

I do love having Richards, but I also miss Simmonds. From what I've seen he has been playing really well over there.
Also, how is Schenn doing? I thought he had great potential and in his early games he always seemed to be in the right place at the right time, but kept having really bad luck when it came to actually putting it in the net (miraculous saves/deflections/etc).

Nashville is certainly capable of winning the next two and pushing it to a 7th game

remember the first round where the Coyotes choked on multiple ocassions in the last minute?

Nah. You're wrong.
Your false assumption is that they're sharing a pool of sports fans that has to be shared like a pie. If that were true, it would be true during the regular season too since there is so much overlap between the hockey and BBall seasons. Yet, the Kings have great and consistent attendance. During last season the Kings were sitting 18,000/gm, and this season was every so slightly less (17,9) even with the NBA lockout. If the teams were competing for fans you'd imagine that the NBA fans would come to more Kings games with the NBA on hold, yet they didn't. So your argument doesn't really seem to make any sense at all.

Like I said, while the city isn't hockey-driven, the team has its own base. L.A. is big enough that there is room for millions of primarily Lakers fans AND millions of primarily Kings fans that don't necessarily overlap to a huge enough degree to dictate which team draws crowds.

Haha, I don't really think so. I was actually confident that the Kings could pull that one out, or at least make it a good series. We split our games during the regular season and we were playing well leading up to the playoffs.

Now the 93' playoffs... THAT was an upset. The 'Nucks had our number all season, I don't think we had won a single game against them until the playoffs. Man that was a long time ago, lol. The Canucks still had their old black and orange jerseys XD

They're just a little rusty from the time off between series


Not sure if this or if there was just way more emotional and physical commitment in the Pittsburgh series. Maybe it tapped Philly out? Maybe this series is a bit of a letdown after the emotions of the first round?

ontariolightning: mephisto6: ontariolightning: Nofun McKilljoy: wheres you dry island now???

wouldnt it be great if kings met flyers in the finals?

That would be cool.. but Giroux is playing injured so he's not effective
Bryz sucks.. Quick is dynamite, that would ensure a Kings cup win

I'm saying New Jersey vs Nashville

Dang, as a Coyotes fan I'm never over confident, but you really think they'll drop 3 straight? It did happen against the Blues in the 1st a few years back, This is a pretty straight up match so far & I think that'd be a stretch.
I do want the Rangers in the finals (aplogize for the assumption) because 1 seeds make the season relevent and gives you a bad guy.
Also, nice series Kins

Nashville is certainly capable of winning the next two and pushing it to a 7th game

remember the first round where the yotes choked on multiple ocassions in the last minute?

Not exactly a team one should have that much confidence in

I expect Radulov & Kostitsyn to play their brains out
they have to, their jobs are basically on the line


Hey sorry, had to run to the store.
Of course they're capable. I just don't see them taking three straight in this series. I've gone to a few games over the past few years and what strikes me about this team (as opposed to the Gretz-coached teams a few years back) is that they come to play. Every damn day.
They catch a few (arguably better teams) by surprise. Of course this is the playoffs and everyone brings it & so there will be no 1-point Capri Suns for overtime losses.
Hey? The Blackhawks outskated the Coyotes, pure and simple. Too bad they couldn't forecheck for shiat and their goalie was a headcase... else that might have meant something.
This series, i see just some balls out hard-nosed hockey with two solid netminders. Win face-off or two. It's gonna be tough to win three straight in this situation.
Trotz' decision is a whole different discussion.

ontariolightning: yookaloco: Smiths: well at least Philly made it so NJ didn't have to face Pitt!

GO PHILLY!

With all the annual awards in hockey, there should be one for bouncing the most hated team in the league out of the playoffs. As long as Philly doesn't do anything dispicable, I would still cheer them if they win the series against my team. They've actually become my second favorite team this year.

I think Bruins & Canucks are more hated than the Pens


Really? I don't think of either the Bruins or Canucks as hated teams. I don't know any other player in the NHL who has Tshirts that display the hate like Crosby does.

I don't understand Nashville.. They go out to get these players with questionable selfish reputations and when they do something selfish they get suspended

Nash knew what they were getting when they got these two

Trotz made a dumb error and I hope his team doesnt pay for it

I would say Canucks are a close second to the Pens. I loved them until I saw the way they played in last years playoffs. It's not their banner (or whatever symbolizes the team) that's awful, its the flopping and cheapshotting. If they change that, I'd love to root for them.

I think the Wings are the most hated.
And most deeply loved. So...you know. Both ways and such.

Not surprised, but compared to the boarding call in game 1 of Kings-Blues which drew no suspension, it's stupid.

We're almost up to potato at this point. Ugly start to the period by the Flyers

I think Canadians and Americans hate different teams

The most hated teams according to Canadians is without a doubt Vancouver, Toronto, Boston

In the US its probably Pittsburgh or Boston
