Yep this convinces me that Babs is a 100% class act. No hard feelings at all. Toronto's still insane to offer this kind of money to any coach, but I can only say thanks to Babs thanks for everything.

Here's the thing I think about as a fan.  Instead of being pissed off that Tyler Johnson is good, or "hating him" because he looks like a maidmer (like a mermaid, but with a fish top-half), I want to know why he's playing so well.  I mean, he's not bigger, faster, or more skilled than Gustav Nyquist or Tomas Tatar.  He wasn't noticeably better than them during the regular season.  He's not fundamentally more clutch.  He doesn't have a better draft pedigree, or winning tradition. In fact, our own Griffins outshone him in the Calder Cup. 

 

So why is Tyler Johnson carrying his team in the the Conference finals, while our young guys fell flat?  Figuring out the answer to that should be the organization's biggest priority, and it's certainly what interests me as a fan of the team. 

Fair enough. I tend to agree with your sentiment. But it's still May and I'm still pissed about the outcome of our series. That's why I go with hate toward him right now. That and I think he's a punk. But yes, that grit or toughness or "compete level" (a term I think is such a lame cliche) that Johnson has is something I'd like to have seen from Gus or Tatar. Hell, if either of them had shown a little of that the Wings would've finished the series in game 5.

I want Tampa to advance too.

 

So I can watch that Caps team hit them into the ice and terrorize Tyler Johnson.

Agreed. I f****ing hate Johnson. I mean, it's not Patrick Kane-type hate. Not by a long shot. But I'd love to see him get lined up and dropped by some of the Caps.

Just one goal on a pp that shouldn't have been. Still in it, although they're looking shaky again.

Didn't they cover that puck in the paint? Bishop didn't have it
