  1. Ugh, Zdeno Chelios and his gang of henchmen moving on yet again. I hope Columbus can keep their foot on the gas after such a long break from action. Gimme an Islanders vs. Blue Jackets conference final please. Might as well get rid of what's left of the old guard in these playoffs.
  2. Toronto about to rename the Gardiner Expressway this spring if they don't just throw Jake Gardiner off of it. That's two straight years he's gonna be the scapegoat of a game 7 loss in Boston if the Leafs can't tie this up.
  3. I can't believe I just screamed YES at the top of my lungs for a freaking Dallas Stars goal. This would be the dirtiest I've ever felt in my life if it wasn't for the fact that they eliminated the biggest disgrace in hockey after only 6 games I don't even think I care about what happens from here on out. This was the best possible ending for such a lame year of hockey. Trash is gone and it's beautiful. So much for that insurmountable home ice advantage. Best defence in the league? Vezina calibre goalie? Maybe if you want to hang up another joke western conference regular season champions banner at the end of the season. I hope they end up getting poked by all the catfish after they end up making a total mockery of the golf links the same way they do with a hockey rink and have to reach into the water to retrieve their balls.
  4. Not to take anything away from the Avs, but maybe Calgary isn't the best measuring stick. They suck. I'm struggling to think of a bigger paper-house cat team that somehow ended up finishing 1st in the western conference since they went to the geographic format. The 2000 St. Louis Blues? I wouldn't pick these Flames over any of the teams that made the playoffs this year honestly.
  5. Okay, I've been rooting for the Hurricanes to get rid of the trashy Capitals from the start but I completely forgot about how much of an armpit stain Justin Williams is. The annoying "blah blah MR GAME 7" narrative that hasn't been relevant since 2014 is already being beaten to death and game 6 literally just ended. Cause y'know, he worked out so well for Washington when they specifically signed him so they could stop blowing game 7s. At least he didn't slewfoot an unsuspecting player who never had a chance to stop the back of his head from hitting the ice I guess. That should always be at least 5 minute major and part of me wants to view it as karmic justice that Ovechkin's (mostly clean?) goal following the PK was taken away when Stephenson only did 2 minutes for that garbage. It's not a hockey play in any form.
  6. Take a shot every time Timo Meier snaps his head back the second anything comes anywhere near his robocop visor. You won't straight up die like you would if it was [insert predator here] but it'll make for a real fun night
  7. I promised myself I wouldn't watch a second of that trash series in Dallas before it started but I saw the score towards the end and figured it was a good time to tune in and see some mustard tears. I watched maybe 2 minutes and the first thing I see is Captain Joke-e slash a Star and place a weak fly-by crosscheck into his lower back before skating away from the scrum he started and towards the refs like he did nothing. Meanwhile his stupid little garden gnome of a defence partner came in to grab the Dallas player's stick so he could toss it to the ice like he's some tough guy. I didn't see who the Dallas player was but he was just shaking his head and laughing in their faces. I have no idea how nobody has even tried putting those two morons in check yet. They're such an embarrassment they can make Doughty look like a saint on ice by comparison. I regret everything.
  8. Mitch Marner is going to get PAID. He's the Leafs' best player outside of Freddie. They should make a NHL video game GM mode trade and package Kadri and Nylander for Subban or something. Muzzin is a bum, they could do better. Side note but Toronto has the best anthem singer. That kid already has a crazy set of lungs and I don't even think she's midway through high school yet. Sky is the limit for a talent like that.
  9. I agree although I remember thinking the same thing about Washington last year once they made it past the second round after what felt like a billion tries. It looked like a Stanley Cup celebration for them once they eliminated the Penguins. They ended up walloping Tampa in the first few games of the conference finals and winning a title in impressive fashion. Considering what happened last night, maybe that 2018 series had more to do with this Bolts core thinking they can simply coast by on their potential rather than just Washington channelling the excitement from breaking new ground and riding it past a supposedly stronger opponent so who knows. Columbus shouldn't be too worried about the lack of experience though. Boston and Washington are really the only teams still out east with more of it and it's no guarantee either of them makes it to the second round.
  10. Eww I can think of 31 teams that deserve a title more than those fools and yes, the 31st team is the one in Seattle that doesn't even exist yet. I'd rather see the Cup get thrown into a black hole before any of those mustard clowns get to touch it.
  11. Timo Meier is destined to be a predaturd sometime in his career. Skilled player but I honestly hate almost everything about his game.
  12. Lmao imagine being a Tampa fan right now. Craziest upset in a sweep ever? Only one I can think of that comes close is when the Mighty Ducks stomped the Red Wings in the first round a season after that roster was anointed as the ~greatest team of all time~
  13. Freddie is still the ballsiest goalie in the league. One minute left in a one goal playoff game and this guy is making diving poke checks and trying to shoot on empty nets. I love him haha
  14. Kadri suspended for the rest of the series. Woof. Second year in a row this clown screws his team over with his nonsense. That said, I can't believe those refs (Meier & Hanson) are getting another assignment in these playoffs. That game was an absolute joke and they let it get there. Not to excuse what Kadri did but there's only so many cheapshots you can turn a blind eye to before the players begin policing themselves. Watch tonight's game in Dallas turn into a total gongshow because of those two.
  15. San Jose traded for the wrong disgruntled star player from the Senators. Stone is turning them into soup and it's beautiful.
  16. I'd pay money I don't have to watch Rod the Bod wreck Kozari's dumb face
  17. Nice work idiot I don't know why I even bother trying to understand hockey anymore. Stupid Knights.
  18. Remember when Sharks fans called the Ducks babies for trying to start scrums in a game they were getting blown out in? Funny how that works
  19. Hahaha Sharks have an extended 5 v 3 with the greasy mugs of Burns and Karlsson playing out the entire sequence and they end up killing off their own PP before allowing a sad shory As I write this it's 3-0 lmao
  20. It was only one game but I'm getting a bit of a Sharks vs. Ducks vibe from the Leafs. The Bruins couldn't handle their speed at all. It was just odd man rushes and breakaways galore once the Leafs found their legs.
  21. Colorado is such an underwhelming team. They're one of the weakest 8th seeds the west has had in a while and Calgary still doesn't look very impressive against them. I can't help but feel like the post-Carlyle Ducks could've taken these (Western Conference Regular Season Champions) Flames if they were able to sneak in. Whoever makes it out of this series is going to get swept in the second round either way.
  22. Give Seth Jones the Conn Smythe already
  23. Wow, I'm 100% all in on the Islanders. Whoever let them go back to their old rickety old Long Island barn for the playoffs is a genius. This is honestly the loudest hockey game I've ever watched and it literally just started. I got a soft spot for both Toronto (hometown team) and Pittsburgh (anyone who stops the Red Wings and Predaturds from winning titles is all good in my book) but both teams are taking a back seat for me this year.
  24. Lol stupid Kings. Always starting things they can't finish. No fine for Clifford (or Phaneuf or whatever generic no-talent plug it was) setting that whole thing off of course.
  25. The matchups have been set and it all starts Wednesday night. As much as it sucks to miss the playoffs, at least our blood pressure will get a break from the annual springtime spike. I'm tempted to say how it will be nice to appreciate playoff hockey for what it is without the stress but honestly, nah. I'd much rather be ripping my hair out watching the Ducks. Either way, who do you all have moving forward this year? (I'm going about this 100% emotionally with maybe only 5% of that being rational so bear with me): West: Calgary vs. Colorado: Avalanche in 5 San Jose vs. Vegas: Golden Knights in 5 Nashville vs. Dallas: Stars in 7 (I already deeply regret rooting for this unholy series to be a thing) Winnipeg vs. St. Louis: Jets in 5 East: Tampa Bay vs. Columbus: Blue Jack... sorry as much as I might want to, I can't say that with a straight face. They were outscored 17-3 this year. Lightning in 4. Boston vs. Toronto: Maple Leafs in 7 Washington vs. Carolina: Hurricanes in 6 New York vs. Pittsburgh: Islanders in 7 Gimme an Islanders-Avalanche Stanley Cup Final cause why the hell not?
