In Topic: 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

I think we all know the Pens are going to win this.  I haven't watched either team play this year, but I've seen quite a bit written about how good the Pens have been all year and not a lot about how good the Sharks have been.  On top of that, the Pens will just find some miraculous way to win, and the Sharks will pull yet another choke job.  

 

As I get older I get less interested in the playoffs. I think they go on for far too long and more often than not teams I just don't care about go deep.

 

Maybe I'm just a bitter old man but I dream of a smaller league with better teams.  I can't see a Pens-Sharks final being a boost for the league.  Sigh.

 

Same here.  The last playoff year that I even really cared about was 2009.  Now it's either 1 or 2 teams that always make the Final and some random team that doesn't really offer much of a challenge.  At least the Sharks have a somewhat interesting story with their history of choking and getting to the Final for the first time ever.  I still wish it had been Caps vs. Stars.  That would have been a fun series.

Let's go, Sharks. This isn't the Caps vs Stars Final I wanted but at least I'll (hopefully) get to watch Crosby cry after failing to lead his team to another Cup.

Glad the Sharks won. They deserve it and have a much less annoying fanbase than St. Louis. I hope SJ goes on to win the Cup. Say what you want about certain players but they've had enough disappointment in their history and are finally a legit, deep team.

Potential Game 7 moved to Nationwide Arena. I'm hoping the Griffs can pull it off so I can go to the game!
