Ok, then why would you be mad about losing game 7 to all of those teams?
Question for the entire room. If the Ducks were not the better team the past 4 years when they lost game 7, why would you be upset? If you truely get beat by a better team, nothing to be mad about. Right?
I can't speak for anyone else but my feelings have always been more of disappointed in those situations as opposed to mad. I'm not throwing things or kicking my dog or anything like that.
Why would I be disappointed? Because my team has gone up 3-2 four straight years and then lost the series. All with home ice advantage, marking them as the favorite. They appeared to be the better team after 5 games, but that proved to not be true over 7 games, which is the standard.
(Bold and italics for emphasis)
Here is yet ANOTHER way to look at it.
4 straight years.
A one-game playoff.
Which team is better that day?
(Actually, it's been a 2-game playoff, and all you have to do is split. Win one of the two, first one, second one, doesn't matter. Just don't lose two straight....)
If you believe they have been the better team in all of those situations, then damn are they unlucky. That is some SERIOUS bad juju.
WIN AND YOU'RE IN!!!!!!
