I'm like you - really thought Seattle was going to get a team. I still do. It seems like a natural market and with Vancouver across the pond, even more so. Which reminds - learn to hate Bettman. He makes Goodell appear lovable. We don't refer to him as Buttplug and/or the Evil Dwarf lightly.

I've heard Bettman is like a David Stern clone. :x

Seattle is still trying to get an arena pushed thru. The city has a bunch of idiots running it.

I guess my choice of teams is down to the Blackhawks & Edmonton (up & coming). I plan on watching a bunch of playoff games. :D

It really is the best time of the season. Especially when you have a team to root for.

Quick note about Pekka Rinne. And - this is with Jake Allen playing great (0.936 playoff save percentage);

  • Pekke Rinne is at 0.953. He's playing out of his mind.
  • His career average is 0.917. In other words, he's given up 11 goals in the 8 games.
  • Statistically, he should have yielded 19; 8 more goals in those eight games.
  • Four of the seven wins have been one goal victories for the Predators.
  • In the 7 wins, he's stopped 204 of 212, or 96.2% of shots.

Blues fans are shaking their heads. Rinne is absolutely spectacular right now.

Of course. I've never been accused of being a "cut-n-run" fan. And as my only dog in this hunt is the demise of your heroes... plenty of time.

If I didn't have an East Coast meeting in the morning that required me to get up at the ridiculous time of 5:00 AM, I would certainly be on line awaiting whatever outcome occurs. As such, I shall be playing Twitter catch-up tomorrow.

I'll be around tomorrow. At some point. Like I said - I don't cut and run.

Sounds like your heroes put a can of whoop on the Oilers in that second period from my reading this morning. Dominant.
