  2. New York Mets 2018 season thread

    With Florida coming in and off a crushing loss, Mets have to sweep their sorry asses. Three more in a row would go a long way to erasing a chunk of that hideous stretch that we just came out of. Would be nice if Vargas wasn't hot garbage tomorrow as he has been every time he's taken the mound this year.

    I think LV is a great story and will gain the NHL so much more positive publicity than a stupid toughest sport in the world to win a championship bs campaign. The whole toughest sport to win is a complete fabrication and based on absolutely nothing. The LV story is a cinderella story that truly means anything can happen. Come on Ryan Reaves with the amazing deflection for the series winning goal - can't make that stuff up. Hopefully they can pull it out.

    The US hasn't lost to Canada in meaningful international competition since the 2016 senior semis. Beat them twice in this tournament, outside in Buffalo at the WJC, and twice in the 2017 WJC on their ice, including the gold medal game. Let's hope the kids keep the streak alive this winter.

    As long as VGK beats TBL, all is good. No love for Tampa!

    He’s right behind KK but he’s too short to see.

    Gibbons hasn't been playing it seems. Also not good Kinky giving up 6 goals on 20 shots in the semifinals.

    This is what you get when you do everything you can to have parity throughout the league. When you try to put all teams in equal footing, an expansion team winds up being better than they should have been. Mission accomplished.

    Good let Bettman stew in it. Let's go Knights

    I may be in the minority here, but I think it makes a complete mockery of the sport that an expansion team could make it to the championship finals in their first year. The NHL loves to pedal this "toughest trophy in sports" narrative and how it takes years and potentially decades of practice, dedication, and perfecting a roster to achieve greatness... and now you have a team of misfit spare parts that are probably going to win the whole thing. Not a good look for the NHL as far as integrity is concerned, imo. It'll make a great Disney movie in ten years, though.

    They also worked the system in their favor. Do I think Seattle, with the same rules, will have the same success? Doubt it, but I think it is an absolute commendable job by McPhee, who was branded as a failure because he never won a cup in Washington, and Gallant who was branded a loser unfairly and forced to call his own cab in Florida

    This was the third time they played for gold. So they have lost all three games

    Oh I agree, it's a great story. But Vegas got it WAY, WAY easier than pretty much every other expansion team in the league. But hey, it is what it is.

    I’m the exact opposite. I think it’s great. It shows you how incompetent some teams are, it also shows you how well they were built by McPhee, how horrendously stupid some teams are (hello Panthers) and it’s the epitome of guys rallying together for the jersey and not themselves. EDIT: I hit on the incompetent point twice, it’s staying. One for talent assessment, the other on how poorly managed they are. EDIT 2: A majority of people want the feel good story when their team is eliminated from the playoffs. Be it the Cinderella story, or so and so finally conquering their last hurdle. Now that we have the proverbial definition of a Cinderella story, that tune has suddenly changed because “they haven’t paid their dues.” This isn’t the 70’s where expansion teams auto-qualified for the post season, nor is it a league of only a handful of teams. Vegas played their asses off for damn near 100 games and have absolutely earned their spot.

    Wonder if Nico would have been enough to put the Swiss over the top. Have they ever won a tournament before?
  18. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Exactly. A team winning the cup in its first year after many expansion teams had to go through a tough process to win just rubs me the wrong way.

  20. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Same here. I know I should just be happy for them, but it will rub me the wrong way to see a team win it that fast. I’ve been suffering with my NFL team (Bengals) all my life, others need to suffer a little too.
  21. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Pretty wild about Vegas. Something about it annoys me though, can’t really put my finger on it.
  22. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Looks like it will be Vegas and the Bolts...….I'm going with the Bolts because the Vegas casinos can't take a hit like that. I'm sure many made that crazy bet way back in Oct. BTW I fvcking hate the Bolts.....If I'm wrong I can't wait to hear what some of the payoffs are....Imagine $100 at 500 to 1.

    So Sweden won Gold in the shootout, 3-2, over Switzerland (obviously, Mirco got Silver). And so concludes the IIHF World Championship 2018...

    For sure and Gallant is a lock for the Jack Adams. Jets didn't look like they had anything left in the tank. It's a script written by Disney.
  25. 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    No doubt, he just locked it up, IMO

    Might as well start engraving MAF’s Conn Smythe Trophy...
