I agree. What is DeBoer going to do when Lehner lets 3 in within the first 12 minutes tomorrow?

 

Easy there getting my hopes up. Keep saying stuff like that, I'm going to hold you to it.

Recent history would show that you should never call anyone a "lock".

I'm sure Tampa is a betting favorite right now.

The Isles laid an egg last night, and Barzal lost his cool, if you’re going to get a major, take the other guy with you, it’s that simple. He drops the stick, he probably gets the other guy to fight. Stupid stupid game last night.

That’s what happened to Varlamov last night.

No, the Isles in their history have stolen some Game 7s.
 

The Isles are that boxer that no matter how many you knock them down, they get back up. Tampa last I heard was down to 10 forwards for Game 7. 
 

If last night’s game was the last ever game in the Coliseum, what a way to close the old barn.

I love how @Billy Z posed his question the morning after NYI got blown out and you responded the day after they tied the series up in game 6.

I responded to the Game Five 8-0 blow out by Tampa.

See @billchao and overall I don’t think even if Tampa goes to the finals they are a lock to win the Cup. So, in general, no. Tampa is not a lock to win the Cup.

The Isles laid an egg in game 5, but even after giving up 12 goals in a row, picked themselves off the mat, stayed disciplined and won Game 6 and forced a winner-take-all Game 7 at Amalie.

Two things prompted my comment, one was that they are the reigning Champs, and two 8-0 is quite a lopsided win.

Even Cup Champions lay an egg in a playoff game once in a while. 
 

If Tampa is down to 10 forwards for game 7, they’re really going to be depending on Vasilesky (sp). Point and Stamkos will try to take over for Tampa. It’s gonna either be a laugher or an epic 7th game.

Well that was a pretty comprehensive job by Tampa last night.

It was just constant pressure. No space for anyone to work. The Habs got to the point where they were shooting anything the moment they had the chance and missed the net with a ton of them. TB manages to be dynamic offensively and rarely out of position on defense. 

Plenty of teams lose Game One and come back, but Montreal is going to need some adjusting if Game Two is going to be any better.

Don’t they have a few superstars who just recovered from an injury that they can activate, @mcanadiens? 🙂

"Superstars"? 

I'm supposing there is a joke in there that I'm too dull to catch at the moment.

Guess Armia was scratched because he just came back from covid protocol. Haven't heard anything about Tatar, but I never would have thought to call either of those guys a superstar.

I think @iacas is making a TB joke. Because you know, salary cap circumvention is selectively punished around the league.

Ok. That makes sense.

As far as I understand the Kucherov situation, the NHL allows it and Tampa Bay took advantage. It's the definition of a loop hole.  You never like the people that exploit these things, but sort of wish your own club had managed something like that.

Another mess the NHL needs to clean up, but nothing can be done about it now.

    • PGA 1st round early finishers : Leader - Mcllroy - 65 for -5. John Daly - 72 for +2.  3 birdies, 10 pars, 5 bogies. Spieth - 72 for +2. Woods - 74 for +4.   John Daly, 7 off the lead!  Hopefully he gets through the cut line tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing John Daly at St Andrews.
    • That all sounds good.  I used Gorilla Glue for my PURE grips / GG tag connection.  The tags have come out on occasion (I have only 15 GG tags remaining -- if GG were still around, I'd probably buy more). I've never held an apple watch, but your picture with it next to the GameGolf helps a lot.  I was imagining having my old garage door opener on my belt when I first saw the unit.   Yeah.  GG still has the occasional issues with courses I've told them they need to correct... that they did and reverted for some reason.  It doesn't help that my home course has multiple multi-green holes.    If these reviews come out well, I might switch units.  Or just the next time I get fed up with GG.  Which might be today, who knows. 
    • I have a Cobra Baffler 4 hybrid in my bag, and that is one of my best clubs.  Enough loft to get the ball airborne and the T-rails underneath ensure I get decent contact in most lies.  Plus, a Cobra hybrid would probably go well with your Cobra irons
