The western conference in the way certain teams are very physical but it seems like most of them seem to be cycle happy and can get away with it. The eastern conference is very much the opposite. The Wings don't seem to know what to do when they get outmatched physically and the team also has the skill to finish off what the hit starts.

Yup, that's a pretty fair assessment, and while the west has physicality, few teams in it force the issue like some teams in the east due.. I'm happy to see the wing finally paying for their lack of toughness, it was great to watch.

The east has to because it's an arms race. A couple teams can get away with just skill, but The Flyers, Bruins, Rangers, The Sens and even at times the Leafs, Habs and Bolts need to use a less skill based play style. The problem I've always seen with the Pens and even the Caps is as a team they don't respond well to physicality and it can really throw off the top guys.

Ya, that's pretty much true, especially the caps. They basically have no one to respond to it and I firmly believe that is why even those super high octane caps teams from a few years ago never achieved much in the playoffs. You look at all the teams you mentiioned and they all have at least one legit fighter, aside from the rags right now. I mean they have dorssett but he can't hang with everyone.

I'm concerned. I mean 3 top villains? I feel like this is going to ruin it. I was fine with just Electro and Rhino but now the Hobgolbin too? No way can the movie handle all this.

I remember seeing an image showing that everytime a superhero movie had 3 villains, the movie failed miserably.
It's been true to far.

Batman. Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy and Bane.
Daredevil too, I think. It had Bullseye, Elektra and Kingpin if I'm not mistaking.

And with Spiderman 3 there's Sandman, Venom and the second Green Goblin. With these movies, it's often the fault of the three villains taking up too much screen time, distraction too much focus from one another to make a good dynamic.
For this one, hopefully they learn from these previous mistakes and try to keep most of the focus on Electro while giving the other two impressive battles building up to him. Rhino's a superpowered thug and Hob Goblin's a mercenary, so they make great lackey material when compared to Electro, suitable for a fight or two like bosses preparing Parker for the big finale.

Electro is just a hired goon from Oscorp in this movie. Not even his own villain like in the comics, where he's interesting.

My god, the Mr. Freeze batman wasn't bad because of three villains, it was the presence of a pun in every sentence. There are at least 50+ puns in the first scene. I'm sorry but you can only take "you should chill out" so many times.
Why not?

No, thing is that every movie with 3 villains suck in some way. That movie was because of all the horrible puns.
And the batnipples was on that one too, right?

You're right, I don't like it. Because I'm indifferent to it.
There's always people that think differently.

Still even without 3 villains Super Hero movies are in danger of sucking, I mean Iron Man 1? I love Jeff Bridges and all but I couldn't think of a more forgettable villain in a movie.

Maybe Amazing spiderman 2 could cheat the system by introducing the one of the villains, near the end. It could be a two-parter, they can do that if they want.
