    ...so we're all rooting for Nashville at this point, yes? Well, except @DarkAudit and @Mathias I guess.

    I just think it would be hilarious if they won the same year they got Subban. Would Montreal burn to the ground?

    Looks like it's about to get very interesting in here.

    ETA: Just looked at r/hockey. I didn't mean THAT interesting. Here's to a speedy recovery for Johansen. Scary stuff.

    The most awesome twitter feed of all time is, bar none, Captain Ryan Ellis (@Ellis4Captain).

    No, Ryan Ellis is not the Predators' captain. He wears the A, not the C. The twitter feed is pretty self explanatory.

    @jwhouk must be at work tonight. That's the only explanation for the lack of massive happy dance in here.

    Sorry, I just got off the phone from a friend of mine in Nashville. I couldn't hear her, because the noise coming from her end, and she couldn't hear me.

    It's already over for the Preds. They wouldn't touch the Clarence Campbell Bowl...

    Crosby didn't touch the Prince of Wales Trophy in 2008, and they lost to Detroit. The next year he decided "screw that," and picked it up. Pens won. Last year, he did the same and the Sharks wouldn't touch the bowl. Pens won.

    Oh btw, an American team has won the Stanley Cup.

    Doesn't feel as good as normal as they were eliminated by the least-likeable team in the league (and that includes Chicago).

    PK is a hot dog player.
    Kessel eats hot dogs.

    This just in: The Tennessee DNR has confirmed that Penguin Season has begun in Davidson County, between May 29 and June 14, if needed.

    Sidney is a sissy.

    Fleury is a GREAT BIG SIEVE.

    Malkin wears yoga pants.

    Go Predators.

    If the Pens win Matt Murray will have won two cups as a rookie.

    We has banner for rafters.

    The Preds did it without a single #1 overall draft pick, and only two top five picks in the last 20 years. In fact, the Preds average first round pick has been 10th or later.

    I like the idea of the Preds winning, but I just can't shake that it feels wrong without Weber and Trotz.

    I keep thinking Trotz is short for Bryan Trottier, and that Barry is maligning the name. :p

    Hey, I don't care, he's not our coach anymore.

    The Habs management wanted PK gone, and they dropped an offer GMDP couldn't refuse. Personally, I think that's why we finally got to the Final: Poile got over the regret he had over the Stevens trade and it worked.

    All I know is, if circumstances permit, I'mma gonna finally be able to plant one on the big silver shiny thing. :)

    It doesn't matter what team wins that thing, it gets paraded somewhere near me every year. Often in so many very small parades, like the one in my grandfather's town, where the Cup was placed in his lap as he sat in a lawn chair in his front yard.

    I actually think it would be harder to see the thing if the Leafs won it (ha!)

    You know, should the Carolina Hurricanes manage to make it back to the playoffs next year, that would mean the NHL team with the longest drought between playoff appearances would be...


    ...the Buffalo Eichels.
