    Is it weird that my opinion of him didn't change based on the play of a guy who isn't him? Because it didn't.

    Go ahead and find a bunch of people who said, "Letang is the only player that makes ridiculous gaffes!"

    I really expected him to raise it over his head.

    I think we all knew he’d touch it. Yawn.

    I thought that Vegas' weakness at D would eventually catch up to them but it hasn't, I thought that the Caps lack of depth would eventually catch up to them but it hasn't. What am I meant to think now??

    Weird. I don’t know how you can’t just give him utter respect. Him and Malkin are cut from the same cloth.

    Win this and they just need them to win a World Championship / Olympic Gold to go down as 1 and 2 in Russian history.

    He’s a one trick pony and doesn’t deserve anything. I want to see his dreams crushed

    Finally someone not fooled by the Vegas hype.

    The Caps have overcome every bit of adversity these playoffs and have come such a long way. And they’re a better team.

    Tampa looked worse than a gassed Penguins club.

    I really don't see Washington being the team that's going to stop Vegas' run. It's not about destiny or curses or anything like that. Vegas is just a team on a mission right now and they've beaten better teams than Washington in the playoffs already.

    Man watching Tampa in this series was such a bummer, Washington has 1 dangerous line that's all they got. Backstrom is injured, Oshie is only scoring on the PP. I'm still disappointed that Pittsburgh let them through because of fatigue/ injuries and Letang. Fleury, hopefully you still have the great Ape's number!!!

    I wasnt fooled by the Vegas hype and doubted them, looked foolish all season, I cant do it again.

    Both teams have a shot to win it all.

    They have both earned it.

    We will all get a better feel after a game or 2.

    I doubted Vegas throughout the playoffs, not anymore. The Craps have looked vulnerable at times, Vegas really hasn't. The system Vegas plays allows them to maximize Flower's abilities. They get balanced scoring, they have a great coach. If those things don't abandon them, Vegas wins the Cup in 6...

    Caps are definitely going to outplay Vegas.

    MAF will have to stay at his current level for Vegas to win.

    Damn. The Caps have better chance to win against Vegas than TBL for sure.

    Pretty even. Vegas was better all throughout the reg but Wash has unchoked themselves and picked up their play when they needed to. Go Vegas. It’s cool that OV is there in terms of merit. **** the Caps, though.

    Not really, Fleury playing at his current level in the finals likely results in a 4 or 5 game series win for Vegas.

    Not sure I agree with the first part. Vegas is absolutely relentless. They remind me of the 2016 Pens in a lot of ways, just without the top end superstars. But they’re fast and in your face 24/7. And they can actually finish. Not to mention, they’re excellent at home. Gonna be a tough series for the Caps I think, but I’ve thought that every series so far and they keep proving me wrong.

    Anyone doubting Vegas hasn’t watched those games. Vegas is systematically destroying teams.
