Looks like Vegas hired that dumbass fake hype-up fan performer we had way back when. Dude looks washed up

I listened to an interview with him maybe a year ago, he gets so much freakin work across all sports. I know my college had him multiple times at multiple different sports too. I can’t stand him.

As for the game itself, what a comeback by Vegas. End of the second they had one maybe two good rushes but couldn’t get anything threatening to Grubauer. Third they fell behind by one, and kept trying to set up beauty goals, finally just tried to get ugly. It worked.

i love that my whole life i heard about the devils and their boring trap and that it sucked. Especially from Habs fans. Whenever i'd ask them to actually describe what the trap was, like... what was the actual system... none could describe it other than "well it's really defensive" lol So when i see MTL play the trap and that the same fans bashing the trap then have no idea their own team is playing a version of it now. Confirms further and further that most hockey fans are clueless

I can’t tell you how many beers I won on bets back in the day when someone would lecture me on how boring the Devils were, they never score, etc and I would just say “you know, we did lead the league in goals (2001)”. You couldn’t just look it up on your smartphone back then so it would inevitably lead to a bet.

Winning is never boring when it’s your team.

I liked when those same people who complained about the trap also touted Scotty Bowman and the Red Wings' left wing lock... which was a form of the trap.

The "trap" is the defensive strategy that the Habs used in the 60s and 70s. You can look up how it worked out for them.

And led the the league in goals scored by a huge margin. I'm too lazy to look it up right now. IIRC it was like 90 goals.

Exactly. Jacques Lemaire had to learn it somewhere.

Guys guys guys, you're making up facts. The Devils ruined hockey by inventing the trap and Marty was only a product of the system. Didn't you see how poor he did in St Louis. They didn't play the trap, and he got exposed.

wake up, sheeple

Speaking of fictitious narratives, I can't stand this angle of "there's no way Tampa wanted Kucherov out for the season, They still had to qualify for the playoffs and what he's doing now is straight up heroic coming off surgery..."

Oh boy, I gotta respectfully disagree with you. 

Sure seems like he could've played two weeks before the season ended but stayed on LTIR to allow the Bolts to circumvent the cap.

Edit: after re-reading I think we're on the same page. 

Dont day drink kids.

Just remember, you’re allowed to circumvent the cap if you’re not the New Jersey Devils. 

front loading a contract (like every team in hockey) “broke the spirit of the rule”, but having an NHL MVP pretend to be injured for 4-6 weeks so that he didn’t count against the cap and then MIRACULOUSLY AND HEROICALLY RETURNS TO PLAY (as soon as the salary cap doesn’t matter? crazy coincidence!) is totally good.
