    OT: Vegas Golden Knights & NHL Playoffs Thread

    Congratualtions Vegas fans. It's truly a remarkable accomplishment for the Golden Knights.
  2. Both the US and Canada historically have a hard time getting their best players to attend this tournament. I suppose it's understandable as short of the Olympics few top players are willing to risk injury in international play. The IIHF worlds have just never meant that much to the North Americans. I think if the World Cup of Hockey continues every 4 years along with NHL participation in the olympics the IIHF Worlds will become even less relevant.
  3. Going 2-0 vs Canda in this year's tournament makes up for much of the disappointing losses vs the Finns and Swedes.

    The norm is being restored after Washington has lost 3 games in a row. The Cap's are back to doin' what they do best. Perennial underachievers.

    The Golden Knights are a team of destiny. It's undeniable at this point. I won't hate Vegas if they win it all. But as a Minnesota fan I'll sure as hell murmur some chioce words of frustration under my breathe if they do.
  6. Yeah. I respect the players that go but the World Championships just aren't given much importance by USA Hockey or many US born players. We do a great job with the U20 and U18 Worlds investing heavily in succeeding at these levels but the Senior Worlds are all but an afterthought. Loosing to the Swedes is not surprising but getting dominated in the 6-0 loss is to be sure embarassing. Canada loosing to Switzerland is the bigger surprise. Hopefully team USA will get up for Canada on Sunday and bring home the bronze.

    On the defensive side of the ball most definately. As for the offense I have my concerns.

    Until the college football season kicks off once more for my Wyoming Cowboys. Thank god for the NHL playoffs, college world series, college/olympic track & field and swimming events or I'd completely lose it. What sports or sporting events if any help y'all pass the time until college football once again scratches your sports itch?

    Buff is one of my fav players. For a big man (6'5", 250lbs) he got lots of skill having switched back and forth from playing forward to defense. Then there's always the physical presence. Lots of fun to watch unless he's playing against your team.

    More preseason accolades for Wingard

    I'm not much into presason awards but if anyone can back it up I think Dewey's up to the challenge. He'll get every chance to show whether or not he's worthy this season as I fear the Cowboy defense will be on the field a lot.

    Midway through the 3rd period, 2-1 Vegas and shaping up for a helluva finish in WInnipeg!

    Aside from Tampa Bay it's nice to see continued new blood in the conference finals. I'm personally very happy that Pitt and Chicago are watching from home this year. I'd be most happy to see Winnipeg win the cup followed by Washington, Vegas and least of all Tampa Bay.

    For the second game in a row Tampa got absoultely owned by Washington going down 6-2 tonight. In the words of former NHL player and now NBC analyst Eddie Olczyk, 'it's not even close'. I sure as hell didn't see this coming but you can't deny the way the Caps ended the series against arch rival Pitt has given this team confidence and a swagger I've not seen from Washington before. Dropping 2 games at home and now headed to D.C. game 3 is a must win for the Lightning.

    Not so fast. I realize it's only game one but Washington took care of Tampa quite nicely tonight. I don't think underestimating the Caps emotions of finally getting passed Pitt can be discounted. Two solid wins in a row for the Caps without Backstrom is significant.
  15. I don't mind it at all as I think it speaks more to the lack of opportunity to play for a national championship rather than the actual claim to a national championship. It's about access and making the case for an expanded playoff. G5 schools like UCF may only ever have one team that is good enough to contend for a naty. It's a shame that only 4 teams get a chance and perrenial powers will always get the nod over G5's and even lower tier P5's.
