    I can see Vegas winning in 5 against the caps easy. Holtby has been very lucky in most of these playoffs. I think the dam will break.

    Hey I'm all for that. Just saying our puck possession sucked ass w/o Letang. It was very noticeable.

    If we can get him down to 20mins a night I think we'll be in a good place.

    Could see the other way too. Vegas has won so many one goal games and Maf has been unbelievable. If Maf falters it could get ugly for Vegas.

    Maybe some Clockwork Orange type of re-programming might help Letang not be a moron as well, but yeah, this team needs another puck mover, it's why Enstrom intrigues me, having a 3rd pair that is Enstrom-Oleksiak is interesting, very interesting.

    I think Vegas should be the favorite, but I could see either team winning. If Fleury regressed to even just great instead of godlike, that series becomes a toss up. I think the Capitals are a worse team than the Jets, but Vegas only beat the Jets in 5 because Fleury had a .956 save% from games 2-5.

    Luckily, I think Vegas has the offense to score enough goals where Fleury just playing well is plenty for them. If Fleury keeps them at 2 or less in a game, which he has done in 10 of 15 playoff games, I really can't see Vegas losing.

    Has OV been watching Sid the past couple years?

    Does he know he needs to touch the trophy?

    Jesus, Tampa's got such a deep team for offense and can't even score 1. Yikes.

    Just adds more proof to what I've always thought.

    Stamkos is overrated as hell.

    It's what I think about McDavid as well, Mr. I need a top playmaking center on my team to do the C stuff so I can score and I am a glorified winger McDavid.

    McDavid is the most overrated player in the league IMO

    That was a microcosm of Tampa’s game today. What a pathetic effort. Caps capitalized everywhere.

    So did anyone watch Hedman the last few games?

    Anyone want to say Letang is the only player that makes ridiculous gaffes?

    I find it funny since Ovechkin is considered the greatest scorer in the history of the NHL, NBA, NFL, MLB and English Premier Legaue and this is his first final in what 13-14 years in the league.

    Kucherov and Stamkos were way too easy to shut down at ES.

    And if I’m Tampa, Id be all over getting Simmonds from the Flyers. Soooo many rebounds tonight and every time a Tampa player’s stick is tied up.

    Enstrom is kinda old and has been sliding down the depth chart in Winnipeg for years. I'd prefer a younger guy.
