Burkie has the hockey senses and general insight of a moldy potato. And he's not even fired up and interesting. He's got the energy of a moldy potato.

Oh Lucy, I do apologize, I've been so terribly busy. Honestly, I barely have the time to drink deep and descend.

Funnily enough being outspoken and surly with the press doesn't actually make you an interesting television personality.

Sure are a lot of them in hockey though.

To clarify, that's 10 years after next year -- so 11 years in total of our goaltender being better than yours.

For all of the poo poo we give the league about this or that, they are a professional, well-organized, billion dollar enterprise. They do things properly... usually.

Basically all sports are already back, there's nothing left to restart. Lots of leagues aren't even bothering with bubbles. Some states in the USA are even allowing thousands of fans to attend football games. If anything, at this point Trump would be more likely to mock the NHL for being too safe.

If Trump learns the NHL is playing in Canada there's no way he mentions it, he can't take credit.

Sucks for Whitecloud but its for the best that Vegas doesn't win. They have now been eliminated in 3 different playoff rounds: 4th, 1st, 3rd.

Go Pavelski, Go Radulov.

I think it would be funny if Perry won a second Cup.

I also think it would be funny if a team with a bunch of Russians and Finns win a Cup in Edmonton.

My favorite outcome is the Stars winning so for the next several years we can get monthly breakdowns from ThinkTank of why they were just lucky and won behind a hot goalie.

I chose the dumbest fuckin time to hop on the Stars. It was after their last appearance in the WCF, so I got to hop on the fuckin bandwagon as the team had no owner and had just snagged this nobody rookie named Jamie Benn. Only a decade, so I can't pretend to be a lifelong fan, but god drat yall this feels so drat good. I am beside myself that it's THIS team that has somehow found its way this far. Surreal.

Was a huge fan from like 96 to 04 and only started watching religiously again last year. Had no expectations for this season so this has been a wild ride.

Stars have been in some good games that more people should've watched and I expect that trend to continue in the SCF.

I have fallen into an alternate universe where my Dallas Stars have made it to the SCF and it's a weird and delightful change from literally the rest of 2020.

I'm not sure how to feel.

Honestly I thought Vegas was probably done with that game 3 loss even though it only put them down 2-1. They worked their asses off to barely tie the game 2-2 after peppering Khudobin with shots, then have a defensive brain fart and lose 30 seconds into OT. After all the trouble they had with Demko the previous series I didn't think they could muster 3 wins in 4 games the way Khudobin was channeling Hasek.

But Schefter said they Love Herbert?!


Yeah. It's an odd one for Vegas. They can reasonably say they lost to a nuclear hit goalie, but their entire playoffs have been defined by dominating possession and shots and still losing.

They may need to have a rethink about how they attack and what they can do to create chances that goalies can't save.

I have no opinion on the Dallas Stars and also they're nothing like the 11 Bruins. Thomas was terrific all year, Khubodin came out of nowhere. This is basically Cam Ward or JS Gigeure.
