[NHL] Thread - 2024 Stanley Cup Champions Florida Panthers

edited June 25 in Debate and/or Discourse
Our first new thread since June 2019. Let’s look at some events since then…..

The 2019-2020 season was cut short due to COVID. We ended up getting a weird bubble location playoffs with a play-in round, in which the Tampa Bay Lightning took home the big prize.

The following year saw a divisional re-alignment to cut down on travel, also due to COVID. Tampa Bay would take their second straight Cup but not without some controversy due to salary cap shenanigans. Let’s be honest, they were kinda dicks about it too…..

We would finally see the Buffalo Sabres trade the disgruntled Jack Eichel to Vegas, who would allow Eichel to get the disc replacement surgery he desired. Eichel would eventually return to play, seeing Vegas try and play fast and loose with the salary cap. Vegas would ultimately miss the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

Obligatory Leafs update: The Leafs would get eliminated in the qualifying round of the 2020 playoffs. Then a first round elimination in 2021. And yes another first round elimination in 2022.

And let’s take a look in at Water Bottle Tosser Jordan Binnington…..

    Sucks to be the sort of person who resorts to racist insults over a hockey game when drunk, I guess?

    Hope like hell that the Avs can close out the series tomorrow night, just to avoid Kadri having to go back to St. Louis so soon.

    I just burst out laughing, quite literally out loud, at how Calgary tied it at 3.

    People started digging into the names from the messages that Kadri’s wife shared and it seems some of them are starting to see the consequences…..

    What an awful third period from the Avs. Can’t see any way the Blues don’t tie this game, especially when they pull Husso.

    Edit: And there it is. Not helping the Avs vs Second Round narrative at all.

    I finally looked up the Detroit octopus throw and it involve my homeboy OHL star Yzerman (and the reasons why I still think of it wasn't solved till now)

    Why is the NHL so fucking weird in stupid dumb ways

    Kicking call could have went either way and I would have agreed, but being up by anything hasn't meant shit all this series. Sad to see it end though.

    I was rooting for the Oilers and I would have preferred to have the series go to a possible game 6 than to have that kicking no goal upheld.

    Especially since the puck looked to already be on its way to being a goal if it never made contact with the skate.

    Or if the refs couldnt keep the goal on the scoreboard have an offset penalty against the Oilers at the first chamce.

    Nearly 10 hours until game time and I’m already nervous as hell. Especially since if the Avs manage to not shit the bed they have McDavid waiting for them.

    If Colorado loses tonight they will absolutely lose game 7.

    Practically dominate a period and let in a late goal. I’ve seen this one too many times.

    Where is the Kuemper who had like 62 saves when we played against him in Arizona?

    Would also love an appearance from regular season Rantanen.

    Edit: And on that note, JT Compher has more goals in this game than Rantanen has all playoffs.

    I learned that Darren Helm was still in the NHL approximately 5 minutes ago!

    I don't know how I thought that game would end, but it wasn't like that.

    Better find him because McDavid is absolutely licking his chops if he’s watched Kuemper the last few games.

    So basically the West is going to play hockey like it's 1985 and the East is going to play like it's 1995.

    The idea that your vote is a moral statement about you or who you vote for is some backwards ass libertarian nonsense. Your vote is about society. Vote to protect the vulnerable.

    I don't know about Tampa, but the rangers aren't exactly playing a trap playing defense
