@chienfou@stolicat Hi guys!!! Sorry out yesterday w a MIGRAINE!!! So stolicat is mostly right. My team was eliminated, so I have not been actively watching.
That said, of course I have an opinion. I would like to see the Rangers or TBL win this year. My division has Colorado (owned by Kronke and Kradi is a dirty player) and Edmonton (Kane, need I say more). Both players I mentioned are dirty and should not be playing in the NHL. If a team supports them, then let karma bite them in the ass!
I’m all for the Oilers in the western finals, despite that they just went down 0-3, because I like the Canadian anthem and, you know, Gretzky.
The singer who did the anthems gave a very nice but perfunctory version of the Star Spangled Banner, then when he did Oh Canada, he sang the first verse then let the crowd finish the rest. Heartwarming to see that many people smiling and happy to be singing their anthem. And everyone stayed on time and on key!
@stolicat Ah yes…The Great One.His ability to “see” a bigger picture and sense how a play would unfold,was almost eerie.Spot on passes to the open man with no indication to the defense of his intentions.A level of intuitiveness never seen before,and possibly never again.Oh…and a pretty good skater in general
@Ignorant Very bold and I agree with CO. hoisting the cup this year,but a couple things that give me pause.Avalanche power play is nonexistent,and the Rangers thus far have been great in inclement weather…surviving a “Hurricane” and dodging “Lightening” strikes.They are clawing their way thru like they did in 2014 (yes…lost in five)but look at the Penguins series.When they are on,they’re on.Less passing more shooting is my prescription,but WTF do I know.If they survive the Lightening,an Avalanche will bury them (my prediction).Tampa Bay does not have the sharp crisp execution of the past two years,but to be the first three-peat in 40 years is on the mind of every single one of them.They have a shot at history,and they just may rise high enough to make it.
