    Hahahahahhahahahahahaha! Oh man it is so worth watching the Preds destroy the Ducks and watching Kesler, Getzlaf, and Perry cry. Especially that prick Kesler. Those three WILL NEVER have their names on the Cup! Bruins made Kesler cry in Vancouver now the Preds are going to make him cry again. Go home you fucking siss-bag!

    Perry crying made me laugh. I think he is one of the biggest d-bags in the game and off ice. I actually kind of like Getzlaf. Bieksa showed what a poor sportsman he is.
    Still think the Pens are going to win it but hoping I am wrong. People are saying if it is the Sens and Preds in the final, it will be one of the lowest watched games but I will be watching when I can. I think it will actually be a really exciting series.

    Ratings be damned! Ottawa pulled it out last night. If there are hockey gods surely they will grant them a game 7 win on Thursday? I have a new earned respect for Ottawa who everyone seems to count out- but manages to get it done when it counts the most.

    See I knew there was yet another level to my absolute loathing of the Leafs and the Habs. They are like the Cowboys or Yankees here in the states.

    I feel for the Sens fans, read the article and it blows that the arena is so far out of the city (never knew that) and that ticket prices are high (seems the norm in todays NHL).

    Interesting article. The youth of the team (not of its players) is a very good point: most of the Sens fans I know are Sens fans AND fans of another team (from before the Sens arrived).

    Ah well. Moot point now. Hope Subban gets the cup!

    Well, that was a BS game. Crosby wins Conn Smythe is also BS. Murray should have won that.

    I could not agree more. No way Crosby is deserving of the Conn Smythe this year nor last. Malkin, as much as I hate him, led all scorers this post season! He doesn't get it? How about that rookie Guentzel who had the most goals? Fleury and Murray combined for 5 shutouts! Not deserving? No it's Crosby again wtf?

    I hate the Pens and it's so obvious the league favors them and especially Crosby. He was too busy getting selfies taken to even come at first when he was announced as the winner.

    I don't want to sound all conspiracy theorist but I'm really starting to think the NHL is a sham. They clearly wanted golden boy to win but even Nashville as the opponent seemed fishy. Nothing against their team - they played hard but the all-star game was in Nashville, Bridgestone owns the arena and does the Winter Classic, and you know the league wants these non traditional markets to become hotbeds and do all the stupid culture crossover shit ( country music please).

    So one of the good things about living at my sisters this past year is that I finally have access to cable. I could get on xfinity and type in "boston bruins" and watch their games- for free. Not that it's been all that enjoyable but hey at least they made the playoffs last year. This season tons of new kids, was excited to start the season but then a week into it guess what? NESN does some deal where you can only watch games online through them! You have to live in the NESN broadcast area. Now unless the game is national tv or on NBCSN I can't watch it! I even tried the work around where I type in the opposing team on xfinity. Nope balcked out. I literally have to go back to illegal streams again. WTF do I have to just forget the team I love and pick another team? Well not yet- I'm doing the illegal stream for now. At least locally the Flyers are fun to watch.

    WTH is going on with that Las Vegas team?!? I don't think anyone thought they'd start out with an 8-1-0 record with a 5 game win streak.

    I've also avoided this thread. I just really isn't the same without Chris.
    Did they ever find out what happened to Ray Emery? I haven't followed up on that.

    Farewell to Patches. But hey, we got a wonderful bag of magic beans in return!

    Watching Bergevin (and co.) gradually dismantle the team over the last few years is crushing as a fan. How long before we are fully dredging the bottom as a storied franchise? The Oilers at least squandered the gifts they were handed in their 'rebuild.' Montreal is purely in a one-way direction. Oh well, season ticket holders can save some money [not that those really exist anymore either, except as some abstract concept]. I'd say fans would initiate a Molson boycott, but who are we kidding, no one wants to drink that swill in any case.

    Currently finding myself having the urge to watch some games, but am having issues actually finding some to watch. Gritty the mascot got me looking and then finally I feel like I gotta dive right in. However I feel like my current love of "America's Pastime" is making it difficult to follow the sport...Am I just dumb?

    It's just a rubber puck and giant sticks, I may be overthinking it... :'(
