Remember this? :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

I am so glad I’ll be able to just enjoy the finals now. I don’t particularly like either team (in fact I’ve always kind of slightly disliked the Avs because of 2001), but this is about the most star studded matchup we could have hoped for - outside of maybe Avs/Leafs.

Should be a good series, and we won’t have to suffer any anxiety (or boredom) from the Rags playing for the Cup. 

Perfect "Kaapo Scratcho" lol...

Watched the game with a couple of Ranger fans last night.  Can’t say that I felt sorry for them as their team was eliminated…I really hate every last possible thing about that franchise.  They can never suck enough for me.

MB3’s summation post of the Rangers’ postseason run pretty much said it all. I’m just glad that it didn’t result in a SCF appearance.  I’m just glad that they’re finally toast.  Hopefully in a few years, this ECF will be looked back upon as the high point of this competitive window they’re currently in.

LGMFD!

I won’t. He lost. Loser!!!!

Yeah, no... he's actually very good... so is sorokin on the isles.  We are stuck with fvcking cory 2.0 in net.   Both of those goalies will put up much career numbers then useless blackwood..

Who cares. The Rags are done. Enjoy it.

They'll be decent next year.   Hopefully we can figure out how to play defense, score on powerplays, and not give up many shorties (aka hockey 101).  Having a goalie who actually knows how to play helps... 

Hope the look at lehner.  He's decent, and can always live here on the island which he loves.

Exactly, my entire premise was I’m not giving credit where it’s due. He’s a Ranger and I don’t like him.

I hope Fitz has a good offseason because unfortunately it looks like the road to get anywhere from our division is gonna have to go through the Rangers for the next few years. 

Good, the rivalry has been dormant for years. I miss it.

And on one last note...I love the way that the Rangers lost.  Because you just KNEW that once they were up 2-0 in games, most of their fanbase already had them in the SCF...I love that Tampa not only stopped them cold, but did it in largely heartbreaking fashion.  And of course now the Ranger faithful think it's going to be a linear progression, here comes a Cup in 2023 or 2024, but as we all well know, that is most definitely not always the case.  The Rangers should be competitive for a while (they do have a hell of a goalie), but there's enough red flags to wonder how successful this latest window will really be.  Big difference between solidly competitive and actually winning a championship.

And of course, right now I look forward to the days where the Devils are actually solidly competitive again...

Normally a team that is singular annoys me. The Minnesota “Wild” is particularly irritating to me. But for some reason these two don’t bother me. 

Maybe because the plural of lightning is lightning, and “Avalanches” would sound stupid.

I always thought the Hurricanes should have dropped the S.

2 great teams in finals where i don't absolutely don't want one to win. So i can just enjoy good hockey. 

Hoping for Colorado to win cause Mackinnon and Makar really deserve it though. But would be cool to see a team winning the cup 3 times in this era

Yep. I have no dog in the fight. Should be a fun series.

Would be kinda funny to see Pat Maroon win his 4th cup in a row.

No team- or player- has won four Cups in a row since the 80’s Islanders. It would be a tremendous accomplishment.

Or if the Avs win, for Corey Perry to lose his 3rd Cup in a row.

I wonder if that’s ever happened before? There were probably a bunch when the Blues lost 3 straight finals in the late 60’s I’d guess but after that?

Maybe during the original 6? It would definitely suck to be known for that lol. But at least he already has the ring from Anaheim regardless what happens.
