    We rarely agree, but I think we can come together on this one.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    Kornheiser has given the Caps so much grief over the past several years that I have become a semi-Caps fan (at least during the playoffs). Great to see them in the finals.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I'm come to believe the one and only reason that the Lightning have been unable to put together a Stanley Cup victory with their stacked roster is that there actually is a God and He is punishing Steve Yzerman for being a Red Wing.

    Lightning fans, until such time as Steve Yzerman rejects all things Red Wing and the third world country that is known as Detroit, Michigan, you will forever be cursed.

    Tom Wilson is bad for hockey. He is a Raffi Torres in the making. People hate him because he head hunts. He shouldn't even be playing right now. He has had 3 hits in this playoffs alone that should have resulted in discipline. He deserves a good 10-25 game suspension at this point, otherwise, he is going to keep escalating.

    That poor TB guy wanted no part of him, but came out of the box resigned to the fact that Wilson was going to kick his ass.

    Lol. He's not that dirty. I'd argue none of his hits deserved discipline. The Dumoulin hit wasn't dirty. He was back checking and he turned to avoid the hit from Ovie and unfortunately caught the shoulder. The Aston-Reese hit wasn't dirty either. It was shoulder to shoulder and Wilson went through him. That suspension was bullshit and only came because it's the Pens and they couldn't let it go after reviewing the previous hit in the series.

    He plays on the edge. I appreciate that.

    This sounds exactly what teams with Raffi Torres on the team said. Wilson's justifications often sound a lot like Torres as well.

    He doesn't play on the edge, he plays over the edge. The Aston-Reese hit was textbook headhunting. He left his skates and launched into the player. That right there should be an immediate suspension. He also left his skates and launched into Alex Wennberg. It isn't on the edge, it is multiple steps over the edge. I don't care that the head wasn't the principal point of contact, if you leave your skates and launch into someone, it isn't a dirty play and you should be suspended. I will give you the Dumoulin hit is on the edge, but since he is a repeat offender he gets no benefit of the doubt and should have been suspended.

    He is dirty, his rap sheet proves it. It is just a matter of time before he starts going full-Torres

    For the record, I absolutely hated the Blackhawks having Daniel Carcillo on the team, but we had to because the league wasn't protecting our players. The Blackhawks may have won the cup in 2012 if not for Raffi Torres knocking out Hossa. We were 1-1 in that series and Hossa is knocked out early in the first period. The series changed with that injury. The Coyotes lost nothing, we lost the heart and soul of our team and the best 2-way forward in the game.

    Then you should become a VGK fan as they play pure, clean and good hockey, with no villains on the squad.

    I'm almost there with seeing Trotz's justifications for Wilson's dirty play. The knee-on-knee one is particularly aggravating because that was pure 100% attempt to injure.

    Of course, then I remember that the true villain is falafel. You find a way to remove him from your fanbase and I will join the bandwagon for this season.

    Falafel is a lovable sandwich filling; you're being too harsh. It sounds like an interesting series, one long-suffering fanbase and another fanbase full of neophytes that are enjoying the ride.

    Ovi is popular but Wilson is not.

    Pretty exciting game one all in all. 4 lead changes, a Stanley Cup record...and two very reliable goalies leaving their nets just wide open on a few of those goals. Overall, I liked what I saw from the Caps, other than the critical turnover by Smith-Pelly that lead to the go ahead goal with about 9 minutes left. Vegas did a good job from that point forward of playing conservatively and protecting their lead. Tons of missed penalties on both sides, and yeah, Wilson has a reputation, so he's gotta steer clear of that kind of stuff, but as MBN pointed out, the blatant cross-check on the Reeves goal was a tough one to let pass, and there was a slash on Eller on what would've been a game tying goal. But hey, that's hockey, it's a physical game and the refs are pretty clearly going to let them play this series.

    Looking forward to Game 2.

    The Caps played well against a Vegas team that has performed well all playoffs. I was nervous the entire game until the last little bit.

    Sure did. Under normal circumstances, I think it is a dirty play that shouldn't result in a suspension. With Wilson's history though, he should be suspended for multiple games. You don't start making each of these dirty plays hurt for him and his team, you are eventually going to have a Raffi Torres-Marian Hossa situation happen.

    I was really impressed with the #nocaps ability to clear the puck. All season long, Vegas has been able to lob the puck down past the goal line and then grind and grind and possess the puck until an opportunity arises. Washington was amazing at their ability to clear the puck before Vegas could trap it in the zone and go to work. That felt like a huge reason VGK didn't get as many great looks as they have been these past few weeks. Sure they got more SOG than Washington, but from someone who has watched them all season, most of the shots they got last night weren't nearly as quality as the shots they have been getting this post-season.

    Great game! Big time LOL at the Medieval Times opening though. It was incredibly long (10 minutes!), lame, and awkward. Did those in attendance get a souvenir cup with their section's champion on it? Might want to get rid of that budding tradition. A fantastic Hockey game though, I really enjoyed it.

    Yeah - every time I thought it was over, it kept going and going and going...plus, I mean, the ice was in rough shape after all those flaming arrows were shot directly into it...how many times did the crew come out to fix it!

    I know that this has built over the course of the season, but this was the first one that I’ve actually watch. So funny. I assumed that they were passing out turkey legs to the crowd. Besides, the whole story line seemed really convoluted. This is why I don’t watch Game of Thrones.

    Vegas is taking this #nocaps thing pretty seriously.

    As I sat there watching the opening I wondered what the fan's in Montreal, Winnipeg, Toronto were thinking, "they don't deserve this", was my best guess.

    Wilson avoids discipline for his hit in game 1. It is only a matter of time before he takes the next step. He is sounding exactly like Raffi Torres, again, in defending his hit. Huge mistake not giving him a multiple game suspension. He should have got a minimum of 3 games and possibly 8-10.

    He is a Time bomb waiting to happen. The NHL is setting itself up when he injures, paralyzes or kills somebody. I sure hope it never happens but that player is a mailicious thug.
