Rite of Spring '15: exhume our idols! bury our friends!

Recommended Posts

It's just about time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, or as they're being called in 2015, the reverse-reverse tank.

Missing this year:

The NHL's Best Fans

The NHL's Best Contrasting Nameplates

The NHL's Best Wife-Beaters

The NHL's Best Jumbotron Smartass

The NHL's Best Slackers

pending the result of tonight's games, possibly The NHL's Best Player

Naked pictures of Joffrey Lupul

And yet with all these things missing, somehow this is still shaping up to be a postseason to remember!

Too bad a good composer like Scriabin didn't write the Rite of Spring, then the title of this thread would be cooler.

Nothing beats the 2013 use of Spoon's "The Underdog"

Also sweet missed opportunity with the McDavid tank thread for not using any use of Treble Charger's "Brand New Low" or Billy Talent's line of "cause being great must suck"

I like Scriabin a lot, but how can you not respect Stravinsky?

I have no interest in this thread but had to chime in because really regret not seeing sleater Kinney this February. I went to the box office the day they went on sale (on-sale date was same night as a Sylvan Esso show - highly recommended) and they literally LOLd when I asked about SK tix. They sold out on-line in roughly 10 mins.

With Pittsburgh - Rangers in the books, half of the first round series are set.

One of the most famous opening nights in history!

Edit: Alternate title for the thread in here somewhere: "Then," Stravinsky told his biographer, "when the curtain opened on the group of knock-kneed and long-braided Lolitas jumping up and down, the storm broke."

With Montreal getting at least a point, an Ottawa - Montreal series is officially going to happen. It also confirms a Tampa - Detroit series

The two playoff series left to be determined will be decided by the Anaheim - Arizona game.

Edit: Washington gets home ice over the Isles as well, everything in the East has been decided.

Really liking that the Lightning's road to the ECF would be Detroit and then one of Montreal/Ottawa. Shades of '04 when two great match ups in the first two rounds paid dividends later on.

Go Jets. Go Islanders. When they're out, go Ducks and Habs.

Which team is the "NHL's best farters"? I can support them...but I'm not getting behind them!

I think it's the Hab's. Pernell Karl says he farts in the crease to keep forwards away.

But he is doing it in Price's face so I don't know how well it works.

Eastern Conference playoff field ends up being the customary 1-8, 4-5, 2-7, 3-6. The West, however, is 1-7, 6-8, 2-5, 3-4. Divisional rivalries matter (except when you play 32 games outside the conference)!
