    I’d take getting to the Finals and losing every year over not making out the first round for 17.

    Going to be a LOOONG Season for the SJ Sharks, they are not making the Playoffs. Not 1 player on the top 50 list. To be fair though, Tomas Hertl & Logan Couture are probably in that 50 to 60 player ranking group. Both still solid.

    Possibly Evander Kane as well, but that mother fucker is a DISASTER off the ice, not even on active roster..... Hopefully they can find a way to ditch him and his CAP HIT.

    Penguins could be a bubble team for the Playoffs. Malkin is out long term. Crosby is out a shorter term, but will still miss several games to start the season. Even Jake G is out on the COVID list.

    Shaky goaltending plus suspect defense, could be a recipe for disaster with the injuries.

    Tampa could blow their doors off tonight in the opener.



    Don't Forget, both games on ESPN (also ESPN+) tonight in the US. TB v Pit and Sea v Vegas.

    Yeah, Pittsburgh is toast.

    Tampa, Colorado and Vegas are on another level.

    That Vegas/Avs series last year was literally the greatest hockey (skill and speed wise) I've seen played in 50 years of watching the sport.

    Really interested in seeing how Colorado comes back from that tough playoff loss. Big Goalie change also, going with DARCY KUEMPER now. Philipp Grubauer is Out.

    And....will Nazem Kadri make it though a whole Playoffs without getting SUSPENED???

    It was.

    I will say though it was very bittersweet seeing my Dad, when it became evident in the final seconds of Game 5 that the journey was over, a mere 48 hours after seeing him so happy that the Habs had kept the series alive with that OT winner. I can't remember ever seeing him so happy to see a Habs goal. Ever. It was like for those few moments he sounded like a kid again.

    And then when it ended, I think he was realizing that there's a distinct possibility that he won't be able to enjoy another ride like this with his Son again. It was 28 years since the last one and he knew they had struck lightning in a bottle this year with a team that really shouldn't have been there.

    Just not in the cards....



    Anyways, I wouldn't trade those 2.5 months of playoff memories and the fact I got to say to my Dad, "We're going to the Finals...." for a first round exit. Ever

    Let's go.

    Like my Caps chances. Not the favorites of course, but they are one of the teams with a reasonable chance.

    I watched a little bit of the beginning of the Vegas and Kraken game. It sounded like ESPN was learning how to broadcast the NHL again. The sound levels were all off to the point you couldn't hear the announcers and there was horrible echo to all of the action on the ice. I'm sure they'll get that squared away though.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    +++++

    Vegas v Kraken was pretty good. Huge comeback by the Kraken to get it to 3-3. But the winning Vegas goal looked pretty KICKED IN to me on his follow through. On review they let it stand, looked like a slight kicking motion at end, even though it was his outside edge and he kind of "ANGLED IT" like soccer. Angling it is allowed. So it is interpretation.




    on a side note..... that intro....damn...
