I’ll cheer for the Blues even though I’d have a fairly large smirk if Boston won.

I think because of the hate Brad Marchand gets in this market. I also think it might be both amusing and humbling if we had to hear 30 GMs congratulate the Bruins here at the draft.
I don’t hate Marchand he’s funny as fuck, he’s entertaining and he is annoyingly talented. He’s a hockey player’s hockey player.

It’s just unfortunate he plays for the bruins. I get his jersey if he was a Canuck.
Topper has made similar comments since 2011.

It took me longer to get on board with that.

I'm not cheering for either team.

I'm cheering for quadruple overtime in Game 7. :drink:

Looking at the Blues vs Bruins defense and their size.

Parayko 6'6"/230lbs
Edmundson 6'4"/215lbs
Bouwmeester 6'4"/206lbs
Pietrangelo 6'3"/210lbs
Gunnarsson 6'2"/198lbs
Dunn 6'0"/203lbs


Chara 6'9"/250lbs
Carlo 6'5"/208lbs
McAvoy 6'0"/208lbs
Clifton 5'11"/175lbs
Grzelcyk 5'9"/174lbs
Krug 5'9"/186lbs


Kinda funny the bruins have two 5'9 dmen. :o


Alexander Edler 6'3" 212lbs
Luke Schenn 6'2" 221lbs
Chris Tanev 6' 2" 197lbs
Ben Hutton 6'2" 206lbs
Brogan Rafferty 6'0" 195lbs
Troy Stecher 5'10" 186lbs
Quinn Hughes 5'10" 170lbs

Can see why other teams always have coveted Edler, good size can play 25min TOI on all special teams, we should give homeboy 4 yrs aha. I just might be ok adding Myers 6'8" 229lbs to that list & move Tanev.

Right now Alex Pietrangelo is playing like a true #1 dman and leads all dmen from both the blues and boston.
Blues are lucky he has one more year left at $6.5M aav.

Haha if our team can’t be there then I’m also cheering for the longest most arduous torturous epic drawn out affair for everyone concerned. And not just for the entertainment either.

I can be bitter that way.


I have been in pretty much lock step with Benning is a genius and most can’t handle a rebuild along with Topper, no doubt to his annoyance 😜

And for the record it’s not what the Bruins did right before during and after 2011. It’s That eyebags thought he was beating the system by giving out long term contracts NTCs and NMCs in exchange for low upfront dollars.

He fucked up and was being too cute and we’re still paying for it.

I still wonder if that recapture headache thing wasn’t a specific fuck you from the league for trying to “work” the system.

Anyway to get back to this topic

Go blues because they are one of those “expansion” teams that got screwed by the original six.

Oh and Rats count be in on the pre 70s Blackhawks love.
Bobby Hull forever.

I wouldn’t say most but there are some for sure. Pretty much anyone who likes the Sutter trade, the Vey trade, the Gudbranson trade, the signing of Eriksson among others. These people definitely can’t handle a rebuild. They advocate for quick fixes and aren’t patient enough to wait for picks and prospects to develop.

We could tell when you put out the hair fires on the anti rebuild crew with their own piss soaked jeans. Docs and Dude’s were 40 W x 28 L.

I think the reason Benning is a genius is he’s playing the long game as well as the short one.

I’m mean the drafting has been strategic. All his picks have been with purpose including and especially the Juolevi pick which I still think was a smart move. I’m not gonna say tkatchuk wouldn’t have been a no brainer, but the long game says the Canucks team that wins the cup are going to need stud D man that juolevi projected to be.

As for the short term trades, the ones you mention, well while we are waiting for the draft picks to pan out we still gotta Ice a team and they had the Sedins to not embarrass. So I’m alright with those trades even if they did give up a second here and there. And I don’t care what anyone says Sutter is a hockey player. You need guys like that.

As far as I’m concerned Benning has shown great thought in his moves. It’s like the guy has a plan and a strategy and I’m enjoying watching albeit from a fuck of a long way away. I’m relying a lot on what’s said here amongst you guys and shitty hi light packages.

Btw is it me or have hockey hilight packages
gotten super shitty since sports net got all the tv rights?

Just goal replay after goal replay with no commentary on the ebb and flow of the game and heaven forbid they show a fight or nasty hit...

It sucks
