Yikes, I keep wishing Svech would've done something other than just square up and eat those punches. Can't just sit there and trade with a gorilla like Ovi.

Ive been searching for a term to describe Ovi

Gorilla is the correct term

Carolina defense allowed only 18 shots last night. Svechnikov took more shots than Mrazek did lol

Regarding lil Svech

 

Brind'Amour probably wasn't this upset when he found out Lindros was seeing his wife.  Guy looked like he was going to cry at the press conference last night.

This mrazek goalie guy looks solid.. We should try to get someone like him. 

But, we got a 4th for him!

Oh, wait. That was upgraded to a hefty 3rd.

Oh, s***. Ya your right. I glanced at the wrong series leader on the NHL site during the game. Still good, all even.

I've gotta think Brind'Amour is using the Jackets' triumph as inspirational material, maybe also the Isles' triumph. "Why not us?"

Imagine not having any of those three teams -- Caps, Bolts, Pens -- in the second round. lol

I'm watching the Canes post game interviews. None of them seem too high on themselves or their play, staying humble and focused.

The NHL needs to tell Carolina that nobody wants to see them and their hideous jerseys advance.  They typically play in front of 20 fans in that building.  They're not good for hockey.

Jerseys are hurtin, but at least this is better than having Vegas make the Finals in their first season and leading SJ 3-1 now. Having an expansion franchise being pretty much an instant contender...something not right about that, at least to me. Plunk down your money and have a Cup.

And I get the "it's good for the game" part, but they shouldn't have to be a contending team to have a fanbase in their city. Earn it.

I think they're good for hockey if they're a really good team. Their problem is that they're never a really good team. Hopefully they've turned a corner.

That's part of what i mean. All these franchises are stuck in perpetual losing seasons for the most part, but the expansion franchise wins the Western Conference in their first season, and may just do it again..or better. That's gotta piss these Carolina-type franchises right off. I really wonder how Vegas will treat that team when they start to suck. Will they stick around, or will the new shine wear off?

They either go deep in the playoffs or don't make the playoffs.  That's their history it seems.

The great irony, of course, is that everyone took one look at last season's Vegas roster after the expansion draft and said they were going to be historically awful. That's why I wouldn't expect Seattle to have the same success straight out of the gate. GMs are probably going to be more careful and conservative re: the expansion draft. Teams aren't going to take them as lightly as they probably took the Knights.

Of course, again, everyone thought last season's Vegas team was going to be terrible, so maybe it doesn't even matter how the expansion draft goes. Maybe there's just some weird cosmic energy that comes with being an expansion team in this day and age. And if that's the case and Seattle has a Vegas-like first run, I guess I'd expect some owners to be a bit miffed. They'd have no one to blame but themselves, though. They own Bettman, so they own all the league's successes and failures and controversies.
