    Couldn’t happen to a ‘nicer’ fan base either.

    Yes I AM throwing rocks from my glass Avs house! What of it?

  6. So far the Blues and the Preds have been real surprises. Maybe will see catfish being thrown on the ice during the Stanley Cup?

  7. So, very late to the party here.
    I’m still rooting for the Leafs, looks like it will go to 7.
    Penguins in 6.
    Canadiens in 6.
    Senators in 5.

    Sad to see the Flames are out. I’ve never liked the Ducks.
    Oilers in 7.
    Blackhawks sweep in 4.
    Blues in 5.

  8. I was 2 for 8 in the first round. Wow.

    Second round:
    NYR-OTT: NYR in 4 (rooting: Senators)
    WSH-PIT: Penguins in 7 (rooting: Crapitals)

    ANA-EDM: Ducks in 7 (rooting: Oilers)
    STL-NSH: Prednecks in 6 (kinda cool to see either move on, although Mike Ribeiro should get bent)
