Rite of Spring 2019: The Chase for the Stanley Cup

Recommended Posts

I just wanted the Sharks to do is beat Vegas in round one and I would be happy, but once Pavelski was injured anything beyond the Sharks finishing Game 7 strong was icing on the cake.

 

Will I be disappointed if the Sharks get eliminated Tuesday or Thursday? Yeah. Partly because I know it might be a while before the get the chance to return to the Stanley Cup Final with all the Free agents they have when the season ends.

 

 It's hard for me to shake the feeling that I'd rather the Sharks not win the cup this year as she people will say the Sharks didn't earn it and I would feel like I can't wear my Sharks gear anywhere but when I'm in San Jose.  

 

While I really want Jumbo to get a Stanley Cup, I truly think that is also icing on the cake in terms of his career.  He is one of the best passers of all-time and is a no doubt Hall-of-Famer. Don't get me wrong, I definitely want him and the Sharks to get a Stanley Cup, but plenty of greats never got one. We'll see what happens Tuesday and possibly Thursday. 

 

Also, Pierre's "Did you expect you were going to win like that today" question to the Blues player. WTF was that Pierre? One of the reasons Pierre disturbs me.

 

It also reminded me that just once in any of the major sports, I want a conversation to go like the following:

 

Sideline Reporter: So, you think you're going to win tonight?

Player of Winning Team: Nope, we stink, we'll be lucky if we keep it close.

Okay St. Louis, your up 3 games to 2 in this series. Just make sure you put them away, okay?

 

Boston will be waiting for you, like it's 1970 all over again.

It would honestly be the most Boston thing to have team like The Blues finally make it back to the Finals after 50 years......only to get swept by the very team that swept them 50 years ago.

The only glimmer of hope today was the announcers says the team with the longest rest has lost in the Finals for the past six years. Let's go rust!

Each of the six previous winners were also pretty clearly the favorites as well.

I’m afraid I’ll have to ask you to leave, sir.

It was pointed out to me earlier today that the Sharks are showing their age.

Can't imagine Joe staying on another year, win or lose this does seem like his final year. 

 

What their contract situation anyway? Any big names expiring?

Thornton, Karlsson, and Pavelski, but they might be able to hang on to Karlsson and Pavelski.

Their regular sweaters - even with white numbers - are very good on their own.

I’d argue the white numbers look better than the yellow ones. Those blue jerseys are absolutely gorgeous.

I wish the Blues would wear their alts if they make the finals.

Can’t, they can only wear the 2 sweaters they designated before the playoffs began

I've gotten used to the white numbers, but they still don't look right to me.

I heard something about the Blues playing "Gloria" after wins. I thought that was really cool. Then I found out it was the Laura Branigan one and not the Patti Smith one. Withdrawn.

White numbers on blue look fine - see Tampa Bay & Toronto - but they just don't look like the Blues when they have that.
