NHL 2016 - The Quest For The Cup

Recommended Posts

My Western Conference bracket is a total shitshow. Good thing only six people entered, I can't finish any lower than sixth. :)

Okay, everyone who didn't pick Washington to win is fucked. The only points I can still get are on the Eastern side.

That bracket isn't even the worst of it. In my hockey pool I have one player left and its fucking Chimera.

I would pay good money to see a show where Don Cherry and Clyde Frasier give a guy a fashion/wardrobe makeover.

This game has been a blast! Glad it's going to OT.

Don Cherry looking like Enzo Amore tonight.

NHLN just had a top 10 moments of the first round, and 6 of them were from the Isles-Cats series. Really think that was one of the great first round series of all time, only went 6 but every game was basically a one goal game (take away the empty netters) and you had 3 OT's and 2 were double OT.

That was a fantastic first game.

Man, Nashville worked hard last night and got nothing to show for it. I think that's likely to be the story of how that series goes.

Well that was quite the start to the Blues-Stars game.

I am having a hard time remembering a year with playoffs this consistently great. Just fantastic game after fantastic game.

That Weber shot was unreal.

Step on their neck. Step on their neck till they fucking die.

Well Caps down 3-1 and another season looks to be down the drain.  Holtby is going to get the blame but he has been hit with terrible luck on Game 3 and 4.  I mean what the fuck was Mike Weber doing with that lazy pass.   Unfortunately they have a history of being lazy at the wrong time

Need to change that to say "Everyone is now fucked". :)

And it's great. Just ban crap Canadian teams from the playoffs because we know they aren't winning anything.

Old men are very upset that an analytics person has a job today.

 

My favourite was noted white noise blowhole PIerre McGuirre saying they tried analytics in Toronto and it didn't work. Toronto put an analytics guy in charge of the Marlies. They finished first.

I like the hire generally speaking (yay, numbers!) but I do think it's a bit hastened due to an apparent lack of experience. He's had one year as an assistant. I'm sure he was soaking everything in and he's obviously a bright guy if he's achieved so much in such little time, but we've heard over and over that the league is a bit of an old boys club. Still, I'm envious. I'll go back into the spider hole with the guy that had this article written about him recently.

Some team also tried the Pierre McGuire method, too.  That netted them a 23-37 record and a captain saying their coach getting fired was the best thing ever.  It also netted them an ex-coach who gave confidential scouting reports to another team (say bye bye to half that salary, Pierre!)

Go Google the Jeff Jacobs article from the Courant when we finally fired that moron. He is without doubt the worst coach in the entire history of  pro hockey in the state of Connecticut (and that includes the Whalers, SoundTigers, Wolfpack, Trashers, Danbury Whalers, Danbury Titans and CT Whale women's team).
