    Vegas, hopefully. I don't want to see Ovi win.

    It looks bad for our conditional pick - I doubt Tampa win next year this season was their good chance.

    I think Holtby is a choker, Fleury is sharper that will likely be the difference.

    I would love to see Ovechkin win the SC. He would celebrate harder than Rob Gronkowski. It'd be hilarious and so much fun to see.

    And besides, I think aside from King Henrik, Ovechkin wants and needs the Cup more than anyone else.



    The rest of the Capitals can go suck eggs though, especially that creepy bastard Braden Holtby. Don't let him near your children.

    Shout out to J.T. Miller on the 1 assist in the series, surprised he didn't keep up that 22% shooting from the regular season with Tampa.

    Rangers too soft/toughness/need a player like Wilson.

    Edit: never mind. It's already there.

    I love how much people hate Miller. How many of your cheerios did he pee in? Mid-first round picks that become 50-60 point players are the worst!

    Only reason he’s getting this much flack is because people still equate Miller to a 1-to-1 swap with Names, and are doing the mental gymnastics to justify that trade as a win. Let’s move on folks.

    Except, it wasn't a 1-for-1 trade. And Miller is a fine middle-six player. People just don't think he has what it takes to be more than that and his production dspite playing with Kucherov and Stamkos, proves that.

    Yes, I am saying it wasn’t a one-for-one trade...

    People think it was though, which is why Miller is under the microscope post-trade.

    Ovie getting completely hammered at the all star draft was pretty much the greatest thing ever. He is a happy drunk as opposed to a mean one. Come to think of it that whole all star draft was amazing: take the best players in the world, get them completely drunk and have them make hilarious shoot comments they would never make sober.

    I don't think that's the case. There have been a bunch of people who have criticized Miller throughout the years. I am one of them. There are reasons why he is criticized. There's a reason why he people mocked him by calling him Just Turnovers Miller. On the other hand there were people who suggested that his linemates or ice time was the reason he didn't reach his full potential. Well, playing with Stamkos and Kucherov every shift and even on the PP didn't really result in higher production so we can toss that argument out the window. Miller is what he is, a good middle-six winger on a contender and value-wise he is on par with Namestnikov. They are different players but in value I'd rate them equal.

    Tom Wilson was a HUGE factor in this series. There is a need for a player or two like him. Dirty SOB but he can play. Caps manhandled the Bolts. Physically destroyed them

    McDonough trade looks pretty good now

    But then you remember that it's the playoffs, where JT historically disappears.
