Really, they scored enough in game 1 to warrant that.

Dallas in 6 because it would be funny for Tampa to lose both of their asterisk Cup appearances the same way to a Central division opponent.

The real fun of living wisely is that you get to be smug about it.



I had Tampa winning in my bracket but I think I'll cheer for the Stars out of a combination of underdog status, residential affiliation, and a desire for long-tenured head coaches to fail

I want to see Radulov with the cup

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

Why was 2015 an asterisk Cup?

Looking at Tampa's history, they only had one 2nd round loss (2003). Every other season they have either missed, lost in 1st round, or won the 2nd round.

Seeing the Bolts in the playoffs for like six-eight years in a row or w/e it's been has kind-of burned me out on them, but I wouldn't be mad or vexed if they got another Cup.

The Stars? Well, I am immensely entertained by their run so far.

Only Pat Maroon has won a Cup on the Lightning. And this is apparently Bogosian's first playoff.

Still pulling for Pavelski and Radulov, but I got nothing against the Lightning.

"Win a cup and retire" would be cool for Pavelski.

Doubtful, given that he still has 2 years left in his contract after this.

It would be cooler if Corey Perry lost the cup and retired (him previously winning does not count!)
