2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs thread

Recommended Posts

I dislike Marchand simply because of his slew-footing which I think is quite dangerous, and also I think his licking is just stupid.  But, if he didn't do any of that crap, I'd actually have no problem with him.  Hitting a player in the back of the head after the whistle while he's on his knees, then skating away before anyone can do anything about it?  That's just funny.  He deserves to get his ass kicked for that, and I truly believe he knows that, which is why you never hear him say boo about it.  One day someone might give him a whooping, and I have a feeling he'd be willing to throw down, and win or lose, I think he'd take his beating like a man.  I know I would.  I know why the guy does it, and I'm a little like that myself when I play.  He's not a big guy, and neither am I.  Neither of us can help that genetics made some people 8 inches taller and 50 pounds heavier, so we have to find another way to get a physical edge since we're not likely to be able to knock someone like that down too often.  When you are a smaller guy you take certain liberties and see what you can get away with.  Again, the slew-footing stuff notwithstanding.  But all of his other stuff is mostly just antics and antagonistic behavior.  I don't blame him one bit for seeing how far he can push the envelope.

Marchand has multiple times thrown violently dangerous and illegal checks around and - because he plays on one of Bettman’s favorite squads - has absolutely never faced the discipline he deserves.

i hope he wins nothing and breaks both of his kneecaps in the process.

He has been suspended 6 different times.

Does anyone know how many times Claude got suspended?  I only see 2; one in 1995 when he was on the Devils for 3 games for sucker-punching Brett Lindros and then for the Draper incident in 1996 WCF.  He only got 2 games for that.

The Devils were a first time winner once. St. Louis fans have waited 50 years, if they win I’ll be happy for them. 

Does anyone remember that they were the class of the 1967 expansion class, winning the expansion division any number of times only to be swept in the Cup Final by an original-6 team?  They've worked hard enough this year to be able to go to another one.

The rules are different today than in 1995. The suspensions are different today than in 1995. The game is different today than it was in 1995. 

He’s been suspended 6 different times; which is not nearly enough and SHOULD have eliminated any chance at the wheel of justice landing softly on him. The NHL Has said time and time again that repeat offenders will be punished more severely; they forgot to mention that the rule doesn’t apply to Marchand.

If these two teams decide to play like this against Boston then Boston should steam roll them. 

Also, Gloria is a sh!tty song. I don't know why the theme this year for a lot of teams is playing these old crappy songs.

The Van Morrison version? If so I disagree.

Hearing the story from the guy who organized the party for them to go to on Spittin Chiclets was very entertaining.

I'm watching the game tomorrow with fans of the following teams: Caps, Blues (x2), Stars, Jets, Wings, Bruins and the future Seattle franchise. Its nice to have hockey fans out here!

Kind of a boring game. I’m ready for the final at this point. Hope STL wraps this up in 6.

Rather STL not have to play all that extra hockey. They need to be able to beat BOS.

Couldn’t care less if they do. I have no dog in that fight. I just want good hockey.

Idk about a dog, but there’s definitely a rat in the fight. And I want him bashed!

So, Evander Kane has been absolutely terrible this playoffs. Zero scoring and not even great at an 'energy' game. So glad we didnt pursue him.

Man assuming the long break doesn't fvck up the Bruins' mojo.. I can't see either the Blues nor Sharks putting up much of a fight.

Bruins are on a different level right now.

That said, I hope the Blues close it out at home.
