    I didn't even have time to crack the joke before you cracked it yourself, well done. So I will just post this flashback, referencing your former screen name:

    She’s based out of the NY area and they’ve been serious for a few years. Can’t help but think that might be ever so slightly helpful in keeping Taylor rooted in NJ. And that girl may be a total smokeshow but Taylor if you’re reading this I can do things to you that she’ll never be able to if you sign here long term.

    Good interview with Shero here. I liked his joke about bad karma for both NYR and NJD for doing a deal with each other. lol

    According to Masisak of the athletic, if Boston loses to CBJ, the Devils would have picks #1, #34, #54 and #55. Options range from: 1. Taking 4 of the top 55 prospects in one draft class 2. Trading one or two picks for a current NHl'er 3. Trading two picks to move up into the mid-late first round after picking at #1 Not too shabby.

    I think it's hilarious that Toronto is already in a position where they need to start making Chicago Blackhawks style cap casualty decisions despite this group never having won a round in the playoffs. I guess the problem with pumping these guys tires so much before they achieve anything is that they're going to expect to be paid like it. Matthews is great and all but he also has a career high of 73 points. No reason to be paying Connor McDavid money for that. Don't get me started on the Nylander contract. At this point Marner can legitimately walk in and ask for Matthews money this summer, can't he? I would say more but I was adjusting for wing vs center.

    Wow watching Hughes live for the first time...this kid is phenomenal in so many ways. His composure with the puck, stick handling, passing, everything...by far the best player on either side.

    DAMN! That puck left his stick in a hurry with just a slight flick of the wrist by Hughes!!

    Hughes assist just tied Phil Kessel’s record of 16 points for the tournament. In one less game.

    What a difference winning the #1 pick makes. The talk earlier was about Byram, Cozens, Zegras, and others... Now the focus has shifted to Pick #34 of the 2nd round since the first round has been taken care of. Love it!

    I think most of us around here blame Bernier more than the refs for that one. We still lost the damn cup because of those two ot games at home. If we could have finished our chances we would have left with a 2-0 series lead. It would have been wild for us to force a game 7 after being down 3-0 in the series but it was rather unrealistic. All these playoff games makes miss the playoffs so much. The atmosphere in all the arenas have been great. BTW Toronto deserved to lose their series for having one of the worst goal songs ever this year.

    It was Bernier. I still wanna punch him in the face.

    For the last 4 years I’ve been hearing about this impending dynasty coming out of Toronto. At what point can I reasonably expect them to just win a playoff series?

    Nope, all the players wives/girlfriends basically look exactly like that. Even for Taylor Hall who looks like a human pug.

    You'd think being in Jersey, he'd find himself a nice brunette Italian or Latina girl with some meat on her bones who could cook him some Sunday pranzo or rice and beans, but I guess those good ol' Canadian boys have a certain type!

    All I could think about watching that goal waved off was Game 3 in LA in the 2012 SCF when Marty had the puck under his pad for a couple of seconds and the King pushed him in the net and they counted the goal.

    You don’t need to know obnoxious Ranger fans in order to dislike them. They are our prime competitors in every dimension of the game and market. Having that understanding and dislike isn’t location dependent.

I don't know about that. Maybe someday. I certainly wouldn't say no. 56. Do you want to captain the National Team now? Same here. I wouldn't say no.

    Brooks definitely doesn’t hesitate to shred that team (which also caters to the NY fan, as they’ll do the same, often too much). Brooks usually harps on ice time for certain players as his main sticking point. I wish Valiquette could give up 10 goals every game. Someone really needs to remind him that his Ranger career amounted to 39 GP, 27 starts, and 14 wins. Dude, you were barely a footnote in Blowshirt history...stop carrying yourself like your jersey number is overdue for a rafter hanging. fvcking douchenozzle.

    Hughes just picked up an assist on Turcotte's goal, 6-1 USA right now in that game. This hasn't been Jack's best game, but there have still been a few instances where he looks dangerous with his hands and skating.

    This pretty much sums up my feelings on the whole thing. Sure, wasn’t the best call in the world, but FOUR FRIGGIN’ PP GOALS? And it’s not like the GKs were clinging to a one-goal lead. Ya gotta do better than that. I understood that call at the time and thought it was fair. Yeah I was furious too. And I thought, as far as Bernier went, that it was a “fireable” offense. I didn’t think he should be back on the Devils the following season, it was that bad.

    I like the Sharks, a lot even, but that 5 minute penalty was an awful call. I can only empathize and think back at how that 5 minute PP vs. LA Kings changed the momentum around entirely and lost us that series.

    For once apparently the Mets dodge a bullet. But with this being the Mets you can't really trust the 'OMG now he's healthy pinky swear' stuff until he actually gets out and pitches well at least. And not for nothing but just the way the last 24 hours have been handled are so Mets

    Two major turnovers by Hughes. One led to the goal. The other he caught up to swede and cleanly took the puck off his stick. Hughes skating is amazing not the product of pre draft hype.
