Could be that, I just don't understand why a presser was even held if they weren't going to inform anyone of anything. They just ended up being even more vague about it.


Reminds me when the Hawks trotted out Kane to proclaim his innocence and then refuse to answer any questions about anything afterwards. Obviously a different situation but reminded me of it.

I just hate this team these days. It's like all the life got sucked out of it the last 2-3 years. They're still winning but...meh. I really thought they were onto something when they just said to hell with defense and tried to win it with run-and-gun hockey. But then they had a bad showing in the playoffs and decided to completely change direction. Nill has also made some pretty egregious errors that are chipping away at them.

Anyway, Corey Perry got five games for elbowing Ryan Ellis in the head in the Winter Classic, but the best part was his Walk of Shame that people online started putting to music.

I thought the Squidward thing was inspired. :laugh:

Roman Polak opted out, basically said this organization is dysfunctional.

Not sure what happened, they've got so much talent, but yeah, something isn't clicking here.

Well, the Dallas Stars are the first team to punch their ticket to the COVID Cup final.

Are they just a hot goalie and future Norris winner? Or is there more here?

The NHL community is rooting for Bones, and I will too. I watched a lot of those early Sens games as a kid.

Pretty crazy.

I think we can all agree about Corey Perry though. He can F right off.

Bones seems like a good guy, and he's been doing this a loooooooooooooooooong time, so if he wins, I'll be happy for him.

I dislike Benn intensely, and I'm with Jeff on Corey Perry. Not only is he dirty AF, he's a diving weasel to boot. Pavelski is also one of those guys who weirdly gets this stellar reputation despite the fact he jaws constantly and is dirty as all hell in his own right. I guess you can call that phenomenon "Shane Doan Syndrome."

Seguin and Klingberg remain favorites, I don't really care one way or the other about Radulov, and I think Heiskanen is phenomenal. Certainly can't root against Dobby either.

The one thing that just irks the living hell outta me with the Stars is that Nill took them from unconventional to being the most "conventional" team in hockey. Started out with a "F*ck Defense" mentality and geared the team toward speed and offense, and they were one Finnish Goaltending Tandem Meltdown away from making a really great run not that long ago. But then Nill just said he was going to turn them into yet another grindfest-type team and loaded up with meatheads. They don't look any different than those Stars teams of the 90s, and it's not fun to watch.

I hate that hockey is so damned prone to teams inexplicably heating up at the right time. I thought we were past the age where I had to sit and watch John fucking Madden and Jay goddamn Pandolfo make the highlight reels every postseason. Those are good defensive players and grinders but I don't care about guys like that in the postseason. I don't give a fuck about Matt Martin when I want to see Mat Barzal rip it up. I don't want to see a broken down and old Corey Perry slog around on the ice and somehow score goals, or Blake Comeau do whatever the hell it is he does other than take dumb penalties. The Evolving Wild twins said, from a stats standpoint, you could argue that Dallas was the 7th best team going into this tournament, and even that might be generous. But yet, they're on their 34-year-old backup goalie and guys like Joel fucking Kiviranta are scoring hat tricks.

I'm pretty sure they're winning this thing--Tampa is just too fucking beat up.

You say that like Tampa is already in. Jerk.

Well if the Isles somehow force Game 7 then it won't matter who advances--they'll be too beat up and tired to even put up a fight.

Unless Dallas is actually TOO rested...that kind of thing happened to the friggin' Avs this whole season.

I keep hoping the Isles can somehow catch lightning in a bottle (terrible pun fully intended!) and win 2 more games, then catch the Stars after they've been eating pizza and wings for a week.

I know the chances of any of this is slim to none, but I can dream/hope!

I think we’re past slim now.
