    :wavey: Tampa

    Caps are headed to the final

    I have to admit I turned it off when Tampa went down 3-0, it was too much like watching the Pens. Glorious chance after chance after chance without putting any of them away...

    I'm almost as happy/relieved as when the Pens were eliminated :fawk:

    I can be happy with either outcome for the Cup now.

    I wonder what Vegas has up its sleeve for tonight's opening ceremony, and I am not talking about Lil Jon :barf:

    Seriously the introductions were a tad over the top after the opening.

    At least they only introduced the starting lineup and not the entire benches :drew:

    NBCs pointing out every uncalled penalty against the Caps while ignoring anything the Caps do is getting a little old after watching 3 series of it...

    Yeah, unexcusable missing the crosscheck that lead to the goal though. It’s interference just like the Wilson hit.

    And the Ovechkin hit on Perron that lead to the crosscheck to make it 4 on 4. We've hit the point where the refs don't want to call anything so they are ignoring stuff to try to keep the game even. If it's a penalty call it, as randomly not calling stuff is just annoying all around :lol:

    Ugh and the Kessel trade rumors start again for the Pens... they need defensive help so I can sort of see it I guess. My issue is the guy is making $6.8 million and had a 93 point season, where in the league are you going to even come close to replacing that production for less money. Add to that that Brassard was a complete bust but they are not looking to trade him and I just don't get it.

    I also see Sprong going the way of Pouliot as Sullivan clearly doesn't like him but Rutherford has said he will be a started next season. Translation: I'm going to sign the RFA to a one way contract, Sully will refuse to play him, and we'll end up trading him for a bag of pucks instead of losing him on waivers.

    Yup didn’t Kane just sign for over 7 with Sharks. He is nowhere near the player Kessel is.

    Nah, the refs would never swallow the whistle in the playoffs.

    Only because Fleury played out of his mind in the 3rd. The Caps were there to pounce on the mistakes, just like they were earlier, Fleury just stoned them.

    Prior to this playoff run, I thought he was overrated. I was wrong.
