this was my bracket challenge. too hard to pick. I have VGK winning the cup but it's too hard to say.

I got NYI winning... over Colorado

That would be cool!  I honestly don’t mind who wins the cup this season.  The only teams I really don’t care to see win are Washington, Montreal, and Tampa Bay!

B's with the massive comeback... surprised a Brind'Amour team would fold like that 


That massive hit that MacAvoy delivered on Staal got it all started.

got rocked

Blues looking good, amazing power play kills.

Allen in the net is awesome, great call keeping him in the net again.

Power play for the Blues!!! 

And it’s EDLER who’s off the ice.  That’s great

Dude I love David Perron’s s t y l e.   He’s such a talented player when he works hard.  I remember he was traded to Anaheim and did phenomenal with Getzlaf, instant chemistry.  Then they let him go for some reason.  I was living in Vegas during VGK inaugural season and when Perron joined the team I was stoked!!!  Hated to see him traded away from Vegas, but he belongs on STL.

One of those teams is not like the other...

 

In terms of talent, one of those teams lacks talent

That boarding call was definitely warranted.

There is certainly no such thing as a double minor for roughing in Hockey Canada. I’ve been reffing for 17 years and have worked junior hockey for 4 now. Never seen that call made. 
 

The NHL is like the Wild Wild West. Make shit up as you go along. The fact that Sutter was roasted from behind and the Canucks wound up on the penalty kill from that double minor roughing call shows the refs, and Bettman’s cards. He needs his show pony defending champs going deep, to draw the American market.

He’s our Claude Lemieux

Is there a more unlikeable group of players than the Bruins.  I mean, they play in Boston with the most insufferable fans but damn, they all seem like smarmy cocksuckers.  Moreso than the Black Cocks in their hey day.

Nobody exemplified this better than Nathan Horton. The guy was hyped big in Florida as a real talent, never did fuck all with it because he was softer than butter in July, and then seemed to grow 8 inches and think he was a tough guy when he joined Boston and had Lucic and Chara backing him up. Nathan Horton is the number 1 all time most punchable face in the league.

Blues are hopefully getting some momentum going. They’ve always been a team that relies on momentum so I’m glad they’ve got two wins finally.
