Not every team in the playoffs gets to hoist the Stanley Cup. Try as they may, 15 teams will end their hockey-related obligations without lifting the Holy Grail of Hockey. We here at MYFO encourage you to erase their substandard play from your collective memory, and join us in wishing them good luck on the golf course starting today.
Next up, Reasonable Doubt for a Reasonable Price with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim Ducks.
The Anaheim Ducks:
What Happened?: The Ducks, who were listless all season thanks to their combined age of 10 billion, got caught by the Stars in a slugfest that they simply couldn’t come out of on top. The Stars, rejuvenated by their mid-season trade of Brad Richards, were simply the better team.
Their Year in MYFO: The Ducks got screwed over by heading halfway around the world for their first two games. Scott Neidermeyer did his Brett Favre/Roger Clemens impersonation. Teemu Slanne did the same thing. Chris Pronger revealed himself as an absolute total dickbag. But, being the whore that I am, I represented him at his NHL Hearing.
Their Silver Lining: Well…uh…more of the same. Neidermeyer is going to waffle as to whether or not to come back (again). Selanne is going to do the same thing (again). But hey–at least you still have Chris Pronger!
