Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Doesn't matter if the don't go back to back. 3 cups in 6 years would be ridiculous.

Really? So like 5 cups in 10 years with no back to back and you could theoretically miss out on being a dynasty? Na.

No one in his family has died yet this year. Hoping for something big to break in the next 36 hours.

No one's laughing.

I like Holtbeast being underrated... Just like Hank being overrated (yeah I said it, of course he's great and probably top 5) but he has more than a few games where he's choked the game away.

Caps in 5.

MSL is playing so bad and really hurts the Rangers' first line. Get him off it.

The fact that you can't even have an uncomfortable laugh over an obvious over the top joke is somewhat understandable in my eyes after reading your lol comments about Holtby, Hank, and Caps in 5.

You are clearly uptight as well as delusional.

think i'd much rather stay in Detroit if i were him, considering all the young talent (especially offensively) that they have, and still to come. funny that he and Holland are going over to Europe to talk to Larkin, maybe that'll be a big part of his decision.

Montreal has a few very nice pieces yeah, but i'd be scared that there's so little natural offensive talent there. like half to 2/3 of their forward group are complete plugs. and what great prospects do they have? they might be a solid team for the next 5-10 years, but i don't know if they have much RANG equity tbh.

but the grass is always greener, especially around the McGill campus, right?

Hawks/Wild apparently met in the WCF in 2013. Who knew? Thanks, NBCSN.

...Don't take it so personally, nothing against you, it just wasn't funny to me (and judging from the 2+2 crickets, I'm not alone). Nor was it in good taste.

These things are just my opinion, and could be interpreted as "over the top" as well.

I absolutely believe in the Caps, I absolutely love Holtbeast, and I have seen Hank (and Holtby, to be fair) get embarrassed/lose games [essentially single-handedly] on multiple occasions (just look at the OV goal in game 2, where he's basically on his ass with no chance of getting off a shot...oh wait it went right past Hank).

I also do enjoy affecting the [insert team the CAPS are playing] obnoxious "fans," so please, keep the inane responses showing your complete butthurt coming.

So who's the uptight one?

Agree with everything you said. Except you must have accidentally forgot to mention the CAPS possibly making it to the finals?

I believe! But apparently I'm delusional

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

welp

when you dress a Tim Jackman for no apparent reason, you get a guy who'll fall down and crash into his own net as a goal is being scored cause he sucks at the game of iced hockey
