    Oh please keep Trouba and pay him an astronomical elbow bonus.

    then after they finish jerking themselves off for the mastery of keeping their captain, they come to the horrifying realization they forgot to leave money for Kreider and all hell breaks loose cause they can’t keep him.

    Kreider and Zibanejad both signed through age 36 is gonna get ugly. I hope they sacrifice one for captain elbow and then Shesterkin runs for the hills next offseason

    It feels like that team is largely maxed out.  Yes they’re better than a lot of teams but I don’t see how they can get much better than they are right now.  Avoid taking too many penalties against them and they’re effectively kneecapped…if your PK can keep them relatively in check, they’re pretty much amputated.  

    Absolutely. Rangers have a dangerous Powerplay. Carolina just could not stay out of the penalty box with them. 5 on 5 both Carolina and Florida were much better teams.

    I give the Rags some level of credit for reaching two ECF in three seasons…but of those four series wins, three were strongly assisted by bad oppositional goaltending, and the other came again a Caps team that made the playoffs by berth only.

    Basically I think it’s fair to start wondering how good they really are.  Playoff team for a while, especially if Shesterkin can be more consistent in years to come than he was these past two?  Sure.  But this group may never reach a SCF.  

    Without Shesterkin they would have been toast in 4 games against Florida. He’s an incredible player and dragged them kicking and screaming to 6 games. I hope he wins several cups for a west coast team

    If they win the Cup, let's just hope they're one and done. If they go on a Cup run like Tampa did it'll be downright unbearable in this area.

    It’ll still be unbearable if they win just the one. It’s been 30 years and they still act like 1994 was yesterday

  5. This Dallas-Edmonton game is wild. 2-0 Edm, then 3-2 Stars, then tied and now Dallas up again. 

    This reminds me a couple of series they had in the late 90s that were back and forth the same way

    It’s time to start running Shesterkin. If the Panthers wanna score more, get him off his game. It can be done. 

    One thing about Shesterkin, as good as he is, he can definitely be frustrated. Timo was pissing him off last year

  7. Reinhart blew some great chances in the 3rd. Plus Barkov dinging the post on that one great chance. Florida can definitely pull this off.

    Rag fans wet their diapers each time the 6.5 ft poop hits the ice. 

    Seriously. ESPN is following him around the ice like he’s Gretzky in his retirement game.

    A good PP and bad goaltending are going to help a team that is getting dominated into the ECF.

    Of course. 

    A hapless Washington team, a Carolina team that’s better but can’t get out of their own way, and then they’ll face a Panthers or Bruins team coming off a tough physical series.
