2018 NHL Playoffs / Re: Jets (C2) vs. Golden Knights (P1)

I wonder if Clarkson and Grabovski are going to get rings if Vegas wins...

Or Dale Tallon.

Well I assumed he'd get the full treatment with his name engraved on the Cup and everything.

Vegas picked up the cup. They are cursed now. Bunch of rookies. You can tell they are a new franchise. There is no way they will win the Stanley Cup now. They are doomed.

Marc-Andre Fleury (3-time Stanley Cup champion) told Engelland to pick it up. The Pens picked up the Wales in 2009, 2016, and 2017.

Ryan Reaves from Luca Sbisa is the game winning goal in the game that sends Vegas to the Finals.

I believe that was the last coaching vacancy. It's still possible someone else gets fired, but so far so good when it comes to keeping Keefe in the organization for a little while longer.

I've got family that thinks this guy is a genius and I'll absolutely never understand why.

MLHS with a good article on Lindholm here: https://mapleleafshotstove.com/2018/05/18/one-thing-that-stood-out-was-mike-babcocks-early-interest-is-par-lindholm-the-solution-for-the-leafs-at-fourth-line-center/

In it they quote his agent who says that Babcock himself took a liking to him very early on while the Leafs were looking at him.

Lindholm: Cool to find a found wallet. Bolsters either 3C or 4C, I wonder what his underlying numbers are and if he can step in and acclimatize faster than Rosen or Borgman.

Ozhiganov: No idea. Scouting report, anyone? I know Kucherov likes him.

This was a bit of a scouting report on Ozhiganov from last October:

And here's Sportsnet's report on Lindholm:

https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/person-interest-maple-leafs-signing-par-lindholm/

I probably wouldn't expect anything more than a 6D and 4C from these guys, but free and cheap depth is always nice.

Dubas getting to work!


Envgall and Lindgren were prospects that were drafted in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Lindholm and Ozhiganov were two European free agent signings that have been rumoured for awhile now.

Those two saves by Fleury in the 3rd literally brought me off my couch.

I want to see Vegas lose, and hope they toil in obscurity for years to come, but Fleury is giving me the smallest of reasons to actually not mind if they win.  Him getting a 4th Cup would be pretty impressive.  One of the most likeable guys in the league.

I saw an interesting question yesterday: does a 4th Stanley Cup (and a probable Conn Smythe award if they win) get Fleury into the HHOF?

Apparently fast, always attacking hockey is both effective and entertaining.

Watching Schmidt goes up and down the ice all game was exhilarating. And then to not hear a single person point out how he's a terrible defenceman who doesn't belong in the NHL because his aggressive play left him out of position for Scheifele's 2nd goal of the game was confusing.

I haven't watched too much hockey since the Leafs were eliminated but caught most of last night's game and it was terrific.

Less Polak.

I think what happens with Polak is going to tell us a lot about who holds power in the front office. With everything Dubas has publicly said about how he wants his team and his defencemen to play, I just can't envision him wanting to bring Polak back. But you know that Babcock is going to push for it. So if he's back: Babcock's salary and experience still give him a fair amount of sway over Dubas.

That might be jumping to conclusions but I mean it's May 15th what else are we going to do?
