Daniel Sedin guarantees victory, then backs off

VANCOUVER --- The Vancouver Canucks’ Sedin twins have been fairly anonymous through the first six games of the Stanley Cup Final.

Then came Daniel Sedin’s proclamation after the Canucks fell to the Boson Bruins, 5-2, in Game 6, setting up Wednesday’s decisive tilt.

"We're going to win Game 7," Daniel Sedin told the Vancouver Sun.

But hours before the decisive game at Rogers Arena, Daniel said he didn't meant for it to be a guarantee.

"That was probably me being excited and the words came wrong out of my mouth," Daniel said. "What I said was if we put our best game on the ice, I like our chances. That's the way it's been all year. When we play our best, we're a tough team to beat. We show that at home. We like our chances."

The home team has won each of the first six games of the series and the Canucks have baffled the Bruins' offense here, so there is some reason for confidence.

"If you don't believe that in this room, we're screwed," Daniel said. "We believe in ourselves here, and it's no different now. We should be proud of what we've done this year so far. Taking this to a Game 7, home ice advantage in the Stanley Cup finals, what else can you ask for?"

Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault was hardly upset at Daniel, who led the league in scoring with 104 points this season.

"What did you expect him to say?" Vigneault said. "Come on, we're in this to win. Daniel is one of our leaders on our group and he believes in the group and he expressed it. I think it's a normal thing to do at this time."

I guarantee all these Bahstin douchbags will still be whining and crying aboot the Rome hit and biting and taking dives after the Nucks win. Thomas is due for a 5 or 6 goal game, not saying that's going to happen but it wouldn't shock me.

Sedin just sealed his team's fate with his big mouth. You never promise a victory if your team has been getting pawned in the playoffs like the Miami Heat. I would not be surprised if he gets pummeled into the boards seconds before the the Bruins win Game 7. No, I'm not a fan of anything Boston, but I hate arrogant fools who "can dish out punishment, but can't take it" even more.

The Vancouver Canucks will be the latest top seed to implode in the playoffs.

Win or lose - if you want to be remembered for guaranteeing a win, go out and score 3 goals like Messier.  Otherwise shut up and pl;ay.
