  1. I see the bright lights
    It's the month of July

  2. Vegas could almost have a sports bet related to how many pages the Miller trade topic will have by September at this point

      Saw the topic and who posted it and randomly thought of this...

      I'm sure they can drown those tears drinking from the Stanley Cup. 

  4. Toronto's team won and I'm happy for them. I feel dirty.

      I'm happy that Toronto has a team they can cheer for!  That's great!

      Raptors aren't Toronto's team, they are Canada's team. We the North!

      Lot of Laker, Blazer and when Seattle returns fans in BC.

  5. Now that I've had time to think about it I enjoyed the Caps winning more. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the Blues won but the Caps win meant more to me.

      It was a lot easier to live vicariously through OV than any of the Blues so I get where you're coming from.  Not that any of the Blues wanted it or battled less than OV but he wore his heart on his sleeve all the time.  It was a lot of fun to watch.

      I really wanted OV to win it. The Caps winning it was probably the happiest I've been for a Cup winner in a long time.

      For real though, the combination of wanting OV to win it all and wanting Vegas to not win in their first season was a lot for this final to live up to. Blues did well and it was nice seeing Boston lose but it wasn't the same. Caps winning was the happiest I've been with a cup winner since the Wings in 08.

      It always make me a little sad when I hear the Hip on the radio, knowing that he's gone.

      It's amazing the Stars got that far considering how they played in periods 2/3. Bishop was a wall, I feel bad for him. Happy the Blues won though!

      Haha, if Demko ends up getting Calder consideration the Canucks will be in a very good place

      @Jimmy McGill - I really don't think Soderstrom is the BPA at 10OA. I believe he's closer to the 12-15 range. I'd rather us take one of the forwards anticipated to go in the top 10 unless we want to trade up for Byram.

    3. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      @Fateless I am picking a little bit for need, that true, but aren't you worried a bit that some of those USNDP guys might be a little over-rated? but I guess it all depends on which F falls to 10.... a lot of mock drafts have Broberg going in the top 10 so we might have a great F falls to us. Who do you like at 10 instead? 

    4. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      I'm trying not to get my hopes up for anyone, I'm just extremely curious to see if anybody falls you know? Won't be another Hughes scenario with us at 10 but maybe a few teams go off the board? 

  13. MacKinnon might just drag Colorado past Calgary, goddamn.

      I picked the Lightning in my hockey pool, ain't looking good now. As for Mac, he's ridiculously fast and agile too.

      Mac is a beast. I feel like he's overlooked a lot. Absolute workhorse with skill to burn. One of the most exciting players to watch these playoffs.

      I'm usually half decent at picking playoff series winners, but I did not see this coming at all.  I figured at best, CBJ would win maybe the 4th game after Tampa Bay took the first 3.

       

      5-1 CBJ in the second game.  I wouldn't have even bet that at 10-1 odds.

    3. Toews

      Toews

      I disagree with the people that say that this is a team that burnt itself out trying to win the President's trophy. I would say its the other way around, they haven't played a meaningful game in like a month +. CBJ has been fighting for their lives, being pushed right to the end for a playoff spot. Sometimes its just about who gets hot. I am not counting the Lightning out yet though.

      If anyone can win 4/5 it's Tampa but they're in tough. Teams rarely come back from 0-2. They don't look like the same team and Columbus has played them tough. Second game Tampa got rolled over.

  15. Selling rune scimmy

  16. It wasn't Edmonton, that's still a win in my books. Disappointed but not surprised.

    1. Jimmy McGill

      Jimmy McGill

      I'm with you on that. It actually turned out pretty good from a competition pov for us, we don't have to deal with Jack or Kak on Edmonton, LA or Colorado. 

       

      I'm hoping for RHD Soderstrom

      I'm surprised LA didn't get a top 3 pick tbh

      its OK if it goes that way, we know Edmonton will screw it up 

       

      I did a search on "black hole" this morning to find the release of the 1st picture ever of a black hole, and an article on the Oilers came up :lol:

      The only thing the modern Oilers are good at winning is top 3 picks

      If the Sabres win it this year, people are going to start saying, "anyone except the Oilers or the Sabres".  :lol:

      are you sure you are doing this right?

      does the ball need to fall ? or rise ?

       

      if it needs to fall shouldn't we be depleting the ball of energy?

      so it falls to the bottom faster then the other ones ?

      i'm curious.. i think someone needs to research this issue

       

  21. Let's just see what tomorrow brings

      Even if we lose, I trust Benning to get us something good.  Remember when the sky was falling the last 2 drafts and we got Petey and Hughes?

    2. Coconuts

      Coconuts

      There's definitely gonna be good players in the range we pick wherever that ends up being. Who knows who falls in the draft or who goes off the board? Going into last year's draft nobody thought Hughes would fall to us. Petey was robbery by Benning, he clearly knew what he was after given how things have played out.

      I'm thinking about next Season.  Neither of my teams are making the Playoffs.  Maybe I am sour about this.  And Toronto is beating Montreal, so that's not nice.  Oh I'm taking that back, it's tied now at 2:31 mins left. 

  24. Chicago won!

      Winning with the teams ahead of winning would be great too, Anaheim's would have to win both games and we'd have to lose both and Edmonton has been losing in spectacular fashion lately. Mind you with our last two games being against Nashville and St Louis there's a solid chance we lose both anyway. They're still jockeying for playoff position and wanna go in on a high note.
