Still get annoyed every time I see the Conn Smythe thinking about 03...

This all makes sense to me now- it would be perhaps the most Caps thing ever to get to the Finals, only to lose to a first year expansion team constructed by the GM that they fired.     Sent from

ESPN released their picks to move on to the second round - not one chose us, not even Wysh.... I know - who cares about what ESPN says about hockey: http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/23051034/nhl-2018-stanley-cup-playoffs-barry-melrose-john-buccigross-greg-wyshynski-emily-kaplan-predict-first-round-series-cup-winners

I prefer when no one picks us. If you looked at the last 25 games, I'm sure we have a better record than TB.  But whatever. The prevailing thought I'm sure is, stop Hall and you stop the Devils. 

On another note, why the heck is Minny/Winnipeg starting at 7 ET?   Same time as Philly/Pitts. Why not stagger that Central div. game to at least 7:30, or 8 or 8:30?  

Why do little things that make SO much sense the NHL does something different?

I bet ESPN is only looking at TBL being #1 and the Devils being #8. I doubt they even looked at the season series. I remember back in 09, in regards to the upcoming first round of the playoffs, said the Devils/CAR series would be the most dull series and hardly worth watching. Highly Questionable is the only good thing on that network.

Meh, 9 of the 13 "experts" chose the Lightning to win in 6 or 7 games...it's not like they think the Devils will be some pushover.  And you've gotta earn respect...a lot of these Devils have never been to the playoffs before.  I can understand why some are hesitant to pick them to win a series, especially against the team that finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference.  I don't mind being the underdog myself...if Tampa is down, say, 2-1, they're the ones who'll be feeling the pressure.

Pretty cool that SEVEN of the 16 teams that made it to the dance didn't last year. 

Who's watching what tonight?  

The battle of PA & Jets/Wild at 7p. Vegas/LA at 10p...

I'd like to think I'd be able to stay up to finish the late game but in case tomorrow's game goes long I may not stay up til the end! :ph34r:

lol yesterday a guy sent me a message asking if i'd be up to meet up with him to talk about a project he'd like me to design for him.

I know he's a Habs fan. So i wanted to say...

"Well, i'd be down to meet but i 'm a bit busy at the moment plus i got some playoffs hockey to watch soon... i know you got a lot more time on your hands when it comes to that but if we can find a time that works sure let's meet"

Obviously risky when you're talking to a potential client..... but the temptation was just too much so i fvcking said it. haha

I actually went pretty well... he just laughed, told me to fvck off and we moved on haha

I actually believe they have the pressure right from the get go. If they lose the first game in TB, they'll start thinking about it. TB is a good team though.

We are watching MIN vs WPG.  The Jets may be the best team no one knows about.  PIT/PHI just does not interest me, just enough that they kill each other!  The Great Whiteout in WPG begins....

I just came on to post my criteria for an acceptable Stanley Cup winner like I do every year (no NY teams, no Flyers, no Canadian teams, no first time winners) until I realized we're playing this year. 

fvck everyone. 

So the Pens is fine but no first time winners? If the Devs don't reach then I want two teams that have never won the cup in the SCF please!
