I'm so pumped! Just shaved for hopefully the last time in a while!

In Topic: Best Hits from the Playoff Streak

With good reason.  Some of those looked mighty close to undercutting people, clipping knees, and there's no place in hockey for crushing someone into the boards when they're 4-6 feet away from the side- especially the bench.  That's asking for some serious head/neck/face injuries. Why don't we see them anymore?  Because we now know that hits like that lead to PERMANENT and DETERIORATING brain disorders.  
I get as pumped up as the next guy when I see a crushing hit, but you know what? That's not my brother/father/friend who, thirty years from now, will have a hard time writing his name or remembering mine because of hits like that.

I work with a guy from Boston. I had to deal with the Tigers loss already in the fall when I thought the Tigers were better. This would be perfect redemption.

That Cleary hit on Phaneuf at 13:09 still brings a smile to my face. I remember that one well. Oh and I forgot how many people got Kronwalled during that '08 run.

Both teams stumbled into the playoffs but the Blues really did. I'm pulling for STL but I think CHI wins a war in 7.
