In all honesty...I hope the St.Louis Blues represent the Western Conference for the 2014 Cup Final...They seem like a decent bunch of guys to cheer for.
They were my prediction to win the west this year. Their team is so strong top to bottom. Them and Boston is the finals I predict and would actually love to see. Shattenkirk is a very good player as well. Didn't look to get too much ice time today (I could be wrong though), but he's a good guy to fall back on if needed to step up.
I think we found our future sniper in Mantha, so I think sucking for a year is worth getting McDavid. Besides, we'd have to do a whole lot of sucking to make it to the lottery and even then, we'd have to be lucky enough to get our card drawn...it looks as though Edmonton is well on their way to getting a great chance at yet another 1st overall...do you think they would trade it? They have to be tired of drafting this high and still stinking...
I brought up in a thread about possibly acquiring Taylor Hall from them, but what about Yakupov? He has seemed to not worked out in Edmonton either (of course a lot of those kids aren't) do you think he would be good enough to flank Datsyuk for the next three years?
If we became buyers, I would love to make a deal with Edmonton for a young kid who isn't working out for them and maybe get Smyth for a Cup run...at what cost? Not even going to attempt to list names...
Smyth isn't the guy you get to make a cup run. He's as bad as Cleary at this point.
He's probably laughing at the horrific goal the USA women's goalie let in and that her Dwoman scored on her. The whistle blew right before it went in the net, but regardless that was a bad goal to let in. This I assume is why Babs is enjoying such a good chuckle.
