Burnside said that the Panthers AND Penguins would advance. His opinion doesnt mean crap


I thought validity of opinion was related to how many Twitter followers you have?

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Premise 1: Barry Melrose picked the Kings to win.
Premise 2: Barry Melrose is always wrong.
Conclusion: The Kings will not win.

In fairness, Jesse Rogers and Katie Strang also picked us, but they weren't on that screenshot. Still, 3 out of 13...whatever. Not one ESPN "expert" picked us to beat the Flyers either.

Guess what experts, we just played a better defensive team than them and beat them. We played a more physical team than them and beat them. We played as tenacious and over achieving team as them and beat them, despite allowing them to score a power play goal on every 3 attempts. We have faced adversity by winning a double OT game on the road. Beating our 2 most hated rivals, and doing so being down in each series and down in each Game 2. Like the Kings, we also have won every series starting on the road. We beat the "World's Best Player" and the "World's Best Goalie". Guess what...we've also beaten the Kings both times we played them too, and they managed to score a single goal in two games against us. Sure, Quick didn't play in the 3-0 win. Guess what, Marty didn't play in that game either--and you couldn't score on our backup.

NJ is winning this series, with the only question being how long it will take to do it. The Kings are in for a world of sh*t come Wednesday, and like their southern California brethren of 2003 (ya, that other 12-2, all world goalie team that had exactly the same 95 points, and beat just as formidable foes in Detroit and Dallas in impressive fashion to get to the finals), come in riding high with a world of confidence and the "experts" support. Sure, we shouldn't have beaten Ottawa in 2003. Sure, we shouldn't have beaten the Rangers in 2012. But we did. And we'll beat you too. This is OUR year and the hockey gods have already written our script.

It is a joke that we are still getting such disrespect from the so called "experts". The Kings must be the sexy pick because they breezed through the playoffs. They have no faced adversity and had to climb mountains like our Devils have had to do. I am also hoping their long layoff will come back to bit them in the ass as well. LET'S GO DEVILS!! (in 5 PLEASE!!!)
