Have you seen Inherent Vice? Great fucking Movie. Like the Big Lebowski meets David Lynch Blue Velvet. Fucked up funny. You’d fit right in that movie, Hippy.

Meh.

As far as I’m concerned the season is over.

Oddly, I don’t think I’d mind if Vegas wins. :|

Dallas? Islanders? Tampa? Meh.
Don’t really care either way for any of the teams.

Kind of liked the way Vegas is built; no real stars, no real weak links, basically three second lines and one third/fourth.
It’s a team sport, and I appreciate the no diva all blue collar approach.

Yeah, of course I hate Reaves, but it’s not like he’s Marchand. Even in his case I can see a limited player who does what he can to help the team. Head shot of course excluded. That stuff has to go. The suspension should have been longer.
But Reaves is inconsequential. I just don’t hate the Knights. Guess they still feel like a plucky underdog to me.

But as I said, I don’t really care for the rest of the cup.
No strong feelings either way for any of the four teams still standing.

It's still a reason for me to fire up the tv if I'm home at game time but not much more than that.

I've kind of been enjoying Dallas 'upsetting' more popular competition along the way this year and I guess I'll hang onto that the rest of the way.

probably be a 1-1 series as Vegas leading 3-0 vs Dallas.

Still looking good!

RANK PLAYER TEAM GOALS
1 B. Horvat VAN 10 (11 if you include the waved off empty net goal)
2 N. MacKinnon COL 9
3 N. Kadri COL 9
4 B. Point TBL 8
5 D. Gurianov DAL 8
6 J. Pavelski DAL 8
7 A. Beauvillier NYI 8
8 A. Tuch VGK 8

McKinnon and Kadri are already neutered, but there are five guys at 8 that could pose a threat to Bo.

Is there any way we at this point could challenge the call on Bo's perfectly legitimate emptynetter? :|

Lehner's fourth shutout in these playoffs. :|

Two games in and Dallas has only scored one goal against the Knights.
We scored a total of 14 over seven games. :mex:

Also still looking good:

ROOKIE POINTS
Quinn Hughes 16 :thumbs:
Denis Gurianov 15
Cale Makar 15
Nicolas Roy 8
Dominik Kubalik 8

Thatcher also still leads the GAA and SVS% categories, but with only three starts... so not really a fair comparisson to regular starters. :look:

Wow, Heiskanen with 21 points in 18 playoff games, after "only" 35 points in 68 reg season games.

With those out-of-nowhere clutch playoff performances, I have to wonder if Dallas is going to be the team that gets lucky this year and goes all the way...at least to the SCF.

It’s amazing that Makar, Heiskenen and Pettersson went back to back 3 in a row. Poor Philly and Jersey and yet thank you Philly and Jersey

Yeah, I’m looking forward to seeing both on Sweden's 2022 Olympic team. 8-)

But I was mostly wondering if Dallas will be able to reach 14... they are right now on track for 3.5 over seven games... :lol:

Yeesh you're right.

Serious question, is there a worse GM at 1st round picks than Ray Shero?

Maybe Gillis would have given Shero a run for his money (or Nonis for that matter), but neither had the longevity to compare to Shero's 13 years of ineptitude. Plus neither Gillis nor Nonis ever had the lotto luck that Shero has had (especially lately).
