    Minnesota isn't much of an opponent without Suter and only half a Spurgeon. But Jets are terrific. One of the best teams in the league, and one of three teams that can compete with any team no matter how the games develop.

    I think Nash/WPG would be a great series, both very good teams.

    Wow! What a goal by Haula to end that one. I surprised myself when I cheered.

    Also, that was pretty cool - I started watching about halfway through the 3rd and still got pretty much a full hockey game out of it.

    Remember when HFBoards pundits were calling for GMGM’s head post Vegas’ expansion draft/entry draft? Just an amazing story

    What a great game in Vegas! I usually cheer for LA in P.O., tuned in for their first game and quickly found myself cheering for Vgn. Such a likeable team with great speed and skill. They totally dominated both games and chased la right out of their ring. Score is actually not at all describes these two games. Should have been a blowouts. Now don’t believe la can come back in this series, which is surprising to say the least. I would never bet on vgn against two times sc champs, but here we are.

    I can totally see vgn win the cup in their first year of existence. They are playing crazy hockey and don’t even have Perron, who played great for them.

    VGK are real. LAK are in shambles.
    VGK are de facto Bettman's team.

    In the NHL brackets I have Jets-Capitals in the final.

    Probably neither gets there, but I think they are favorites.

    I’m biased because i also enjoy the Wild, but it really was a shame that suter got injured before the playoffs.

    The only chance the Wild could have had is if they just shut down the Jets in high danger areas (where Surer was the guy for that job) and grind out wins.

    Now it looks like dumba May even be injured....

    Sid Crosby is really good at ice hockey. He’s now one point behind Mario on the Pens all time playoff scoring leaders.

    Is Plekanec even that much better than Eric Fehr?

    I think I would move Nylander for Dumba. He's the exact thing we need and fits the core age. RD, physical, can play on the top pair.

    Well one guy was in the Leafs' roster on a part-time basis, while the other guy, the one we we paid a second round pick for, has his spot set in stone. Ridiculous how much leeway journeymen get on this team just because they're "veterans". I'd rather load up on UFA centers in the AHL and give the 4c spot to Aaltonen... We ended up losing Toninato in part due to this crap. Could you imagine what would have happened if he'd worked out for the Avs?

    If the Wild can keep playing like this, the series will go 7 games.

    Winnipeg getting blitzed makes me feel a little bit better. Sometimes you get overwhelmed and the other team gets all the breaks. Jets are a great team and they are getting killed tonight.
