2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

Recommended Posts

So incredibly happy to see Ovechkin get to play in a Cup Final, you saw on his face last night how stoked he is for this final, hope he comes out guns blazing in Game 1 in Vegas.

Glad to see the Rags South finally out of it.

No one named after fvcking Yanni should ever have their name on the cup.

What's wrong with being named Laurel?

Sometimes I think I'm witty, and then I see a joke like this being posted and I realize I am the least creative person in the world.

holy sh!t that's the best joke I think I've ever seen on this forum. 10/10 execution.

Between these two teams I guess I am rooting for Washington.

I still have a feeling Vegas will win though.

Will also mention that the Lightning being eliminated helps keep that pick to the Rangers as a 2nd and not a 1st, for now at least.

Right now they're sitting at 9th, 26th, and 28th with those 1st's they picked up, hopefully they don't get another out of Tampa next year.

When you pick up another wave of loser Rangers at the deadline, you're going to continue to lose.

I still hate the Capitals and especially Tom Wilson. Cinderella all the way, Go Vegas!

I hated the narrative that Ovi wasn't a winner and couldn't get it done in the playoffs.  He is really showing that fire this playoffs.  I loved when he was asked if he was going to touch the Prince of Wales trophy and he said yeah your going to watch me right now!

I think Ovi's been blasted a bit unfairly at times, but he really NEEDED to have a playoff run like this, at this point in his career.  In his last five playoffs (60 GP total), he scored just 21 goals and had 40 points overall, on 8.3% shooting (he's at 12.4% for his career in the regular season)...for a guy who's such a scoring beast, that simply was not good enough (especially when you realize that he WAS scoring plenty of playoff goals in his first four postseasons:  25 in his first 37 playoff games).  The metrics crowd would probably try to explain that five-year funk away with "short sample bad luck, he was still getting his shots, etc" (sabermetricians often would site similar "short sample bad luck" scenarios when dismissing Alex Rodriguez's multiple playoff follies), and they're not entirely wrong, but at some point, Ovi really need to have a big year in the postseason, pretty much right now...and he's done that.  If he has a big SCF, it will be very hard for his detractors to get on him for a while.

Yup, ovie needed this big time, as the leader.. I think the larger picture was that the entire caps team were chokers.. hard to argue on the surface, however  Pittsburgh was one he'll of a loaded hockey team.. it wasn't like they were being knocked out by the hurricanes... 

Lets see how it plays out, vegas is for real, and that choker label is waiting in the wings to rear it's ugly head  ha ha

Some idiot team in the top three will probably trade with them or the FlySchmucks, because of course our two biggest rivals both have to have multiple 1’s.
