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.

Nikolaj Ehlers (#27 in blue) is properly getting a lot of credit for holding the scrum back from the injured Evans.  

Man, Tom Wilson just can't help himself. He's not just a goon, but he undermines his actual ability when he pulls stupid shit like this. He should be out for awhile. But it's the NHL, and th

I’m having a hard time seeing this. First, you said someone is really going to get hurt one of these days, even though the kid is out with a concussion. Then, you said you were thinking of something m

Is Tampa a lock to win the cup?

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.

And Montreal advances.  I know a few guys who will be overjoyed.

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.

Anybody want to go out on a limb and pick the winner and game score for tonight's hockey 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.

    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing thing you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
    • There's been a lot of stories in the news lately that, because enough people have not been vaccinated (thus starving the virus), we may be headed towards mandates.  Not desirable but the 30% to 40% not vaccinated are keeping Covid-19 rolling right along and harming those who have done their part to help beat down this pandemic.
