I'd be okay with Kadri not playing another game this season, to be perfectly honest.

_/glad for the 9pm start time.  City is having a concert at the nearby park with the local 'slightly better than a garage band' cover band.  Assuming the rain holds off we were thinking of wandering over there & having a picnic dinner.
_/_/I can't imagine that there will be 'that' many calls for multiple encores that we won't be back by 9

Rather than post it in last night's thread, I'm posting it here, because I want to play along as well.


LIST OF TEAMS I CAN SUPPORT (most to least)

1. Islanders - They have rebuilt themselves into an amazingly competitive team, plus Trotz. Why not the New York Saints?
DIFFICULTY: Clutterbuck

2. Montreal - I have no strong like or dislike of the Habs, unlike many Canadians. I would like to see Price get a Cup ring.
DIFFICULTY: 25 Stanley Cups we'll never hear the end of.

3. Vegas - The fairytale almost happened in 2018, maybe it can happen in 2021.
DIFFICULTY: None.

4. Colorado - No, f*ck Colorado, I'm not over 2019
DIFFICULTY: F*CK YOU

5. Tampa - I will NEVER get over 2004
DIFFICULTY: SERIOUSLY, F*CK TAMPA!

From last night -- decided I would pollute the new thread with my opinion since it came at the tail end.

abmoraz: My rankings of who to root for based on who's left:

1. Vegas: Still the scrappy underdogs of throw-away players
2. Lightning: Hard to hate them.  It's amazing they kept the talent as long as they have
3. Islanders: Just for the LoLz in how bad it makes the Capitals look for letting Trotz walk.
4. Habs: meh... nothing for or against them
5. Avalanch: fark Kadri


Mine:
1. Vegas Golden Knights
New team, new fans, a mix of vets, rookies, guys tossed to the side ... what's not to like? "They're rivals from your division," you say? Nice -- the Smythe Division was half of Canada and Los Angeles back in my youth, it's nice to have other teams and fan bases a bit closer and maybe spark jealousy in the lazy bastards enjoying the California weather (That goes for you too, Ducks and Sharks).

And if you hate the Knights, well, they win now and then go on to suck in three, five or 10 years, it will be fun to watch the squirm from people who only tasted sweet success and got drunk on it.

I'm also enjoying Mark Stone shutting down the Avs' top line; Alec Martinez threatening to make a case to the hall of fame or a jersey retirement committee on being Mr. Playoff OT Game-Winner, and Marc-Andre Fleury finding the Fountain of Youth Teemu Selanne and a few others have found at the back end of their 30s.

Just keep the Medieval Times shiat on a minimum.

2. NY Islanders
Blue-collar talent, names like Brock and Clutterbuck, a return to glory days story that last tasted success in 1993 and then went to total shiat with Mike Milbury and an owner who DGAF, followed by a team with stadium woes only eclipsed by the Oakland Raiders and A's (can only imagine a sewage leak at the rink). There's character here.

Then you got Barry Trotz, who established himself as the best coach in hockey these days, making weak Nashville teams a tough player in the playoffs, followed by a miraculous job of not having the Washington Capitals choke, then running full speed from that f--ked bunch before they even had a chance to clean up the victory parade confetti.

OK, there is a familiar stink of New Jersey Devils-style defensive hockey that annoys some people (not me) -- oh, hi Mr. General Manager Lou Lamoriello. And a fanbase that looks like Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger Force bought a jersey while riding their IROC-Z to the Nassau Colisuem and like the Islanders, are reliving their peak years of 1983.

Fark it. Islanders fan, grab an undersized, grease-stained Mike Bossy jersey (or Aquafresh-colored Gorton's Fisherman) and The Belt of Foreigner on, and let's hear late '70s-'80s rock in the ancient barn. Selfie that shiat and NHL Fan Voting Award might still be yours, if not Lord Stanley's.

3. Colorado Avalanche
Back in the '90s and 00s, I was a bit bitter about the Avs.

Sure, it was nice for a f--ked up organization to literally do a 180 after Eric Lindros shat on them and they turned those turds into Stanley Cups (and Lindros ... well ...). But like the Red Wings, they turned that sympathy and "cool they won" into "oh, those guys again."

Time has passed, dynasties are even rarer, and the Avalanche have mostly grown their own talent rather than poached.

And it's beautiful talent to watch, I'll add. Something wants me to put these guys lower on the list, but I just can't. Oh, and they might be gone after tonight.

4. Tampa Bay Lightning
"Oh those guys, again" is definitely one reason this team is below the Avs. But abusing the shiat out of the NHL's salary cap loopholes earns some major villain points.

Having $17.5 million more to use shows in outhustling Carolina and surviving a grudge match with Florida with minimal damage; Keep in mind that's almost a quarter of another club's expenses the Lightning are over.

It kind of annoys me another way. For years I picked the Lightning and they were always hexed in one way or another. Then finally, success. But then it quickly soured over this one thing. Even watching them smartly tear apart their opponents just gets overshadowed by this BS.

The goalie in me does like Andrew Vasilevskiyl; he is, in my mind, the current torchbearer of elite goaltenders.

Enough. I think we have a favorite to boo. But Tampa Bay is NOT the worst of the bunch.

5. Montreal Canadiens.
Two words.

F--K CANADA.

And f--k teams that won championships too much. And f--k their fans for too many reasons.

Honestly, I want to see a nation go stir-crazy in 2044 when it's been over 50 years since a Canadian team won a Stanley Cup.

Who is with me on wanting to watch that torture? To see Montreal fans on the street as dejected as Maple Leafs' fans after Boston shocked them a few years back? Hell, do any of you in the Great White North really want to see those guys win it before YOUR team?

Find a positive ... OK.

Carey Price is a good story; his injuries made us forget he was once a contender for the god tier of goaltending left vacant the past decade after Martin Brodeur's retirement, and in which Henrik Lundqvist (a competitor; he was good, he was very good) and one or two others fell short of grasping.

And Shea Weber qualifies as guys you want to see lift a Cup before calling it a career.

But don't gawk over Tyler Toffoli and Corey Perry (I know, it's Perry). They are two examples of guys living it good and underachieving on contracts in Southern California, then getting the boot and realizing they'd have to bust their balls for a regular paycheck (Perry) or not be considered an underachiever (Toffoli).

And that's all the time I have for this wall of text. I gotta go get groceries. See you ... SOON.

Go Avs. This series deserves a game 7.

My list since it's the cool thing to do:

1. Islanders - Been a long time since they won and Leddy is from my hometown
2. Vegas - They're probably my 2nd favorite NHL team and the Wild took them to 7 games so that would make the Wild basically like Stanley Cup champions.
3. Tampa Bay - I just really love watching them play. Great team.
4. Montreal - I have no strong feelings for or against them.
5. Avs - I still think they're probably the most talented team, but fark them.

SAFETY'S OFF!


Safety's off could be a dangerous thing to say to us heavily armed south of your border people... just sayin'

But if you just want to wrastle around out on the ice for a bit, yeah sure...

Anywho, my list

1 Vegas.  Picked them to win my bracket so probably should keep that going.  2/3rd of my offspring live in the LV metro so probably should root for their hometown team as there's nothing around here other than Columbus a couple of hours away.  And other than those insipid gold helmets, I like most everything about them.

2 NYI.  They shut Jack Edwards up for the season so that's a big + for them...  I generally don't like New York teams due to the Nu Yawk fans, but they're probably best of the batch (although during the season I seem to watch more of the Rags for some reason).  Plus I like a couple of the players quite a bit & wouldn't mind seeing them skate The Cup

(big break in the rankings)

3 Colorado.  I was on Team Red Wings back in the day & that's hard to get over even though many of their players weren't even born during the heyday of the battles.  Also a bunch of sneaky dirty players on the team along with the not so sneaky Kadri.  I'd rather Vegas moves on, but would probably root for them in the 3rd/4th rounds.

4 Lightning. Like Vegas I picked them to go to the SCF, so them going (& losing) wouldn't be bad for bracket points.  Their cap shenanigans pissed me off.  I really wouldn't mind at all if there were new rules that if a player spends 'x%' of the season on LTIR then he's playoff ineligible.  Perhaps a sliding scale where early in the season IR counts for less towards that % than later on (provided that that player plays, say 75% of the teams remaining games, prorated to historical game averages - say, 30 games left, his historical average prorated would be 20 of those games, so he'd have to play in 15 of them to be eligible - so that the team doesn't just healthy scratch the player to park him until the playoffs).  Even though players aren't paid, keeping the cap limit based upon their contracts for the just finished season wouldn't be a bad idea.  This pissed me off years ago when Neidermeyer & Selanne were 'injured' for much of the season way back when (or couldn't decide if he wanted to retire or not, I can't remember) only to miraculously get healed/still want to play just in time to get warmed up/shake off the cobwebs right before the playoffs.  And it pisses me off today. There's finding loopholes/pushing things to get an edge ... & then there's shiatting all over the spirit of the cap that all teams must adhere to to get an advantage.

5 And the Habs.  While I'd love to see Perry skate The Cup to put a cap on a great career (& Weber/Price getting their names on it), yeah no.  I've got friends in Montreal who always give me crap about hockey teams south of the border in general, so it wouldn't bother me a bit if The Cup only returns home for it's now traditional summer visit/s.

Last year many of you amazing farkers gave me wonderful advice on bourbon and whiskey. I clearly came to the right place. I've tried many and feel like I'm learning more every day.
Last night I was out with my GF after the game at a local bar. They had a bottle of 4 Roses Single Barrel. I asked for a glass of that on the rocks. The bartender got a surprised look on his face and said "you know what the fark you're doing". I said I had some friends that have been good teachers.
