I went ahead and liked this and I'm just going to ignore your comment about Cardinals fans. Also, St. Louis has some great pizza and aaaaahmazing Italian food on The Hill... it's just that Imo's is not a glowing example of the great food in St. Louis. A lot of other St. Louis fans will crucify me for it, but I am not an Imo's lover.

Also, that second goal was awesome and ya it was all on Marchand. Absolutely beautiful moment. Nothing but respect for Rask. I can't imagine how Backes was feeling watching his former team beat his current team without even touching the ice. A lot of Blues fans renounced their former love for Backes during this series, but now that it's over I think a lot of us feel bittersweet feelings towards Backes.

I'm a new St. Louisan, but have embraced the Blues, so I applaud McCarthy's genuine appreciation of this fan base. The elation felt in this city today is unreal, and very badly needed. It's a great time to be here.

 

And I really like Imo's.

Try cayenne pepper instead. Salt's too generous.

 

And Infrared, I do contribute to the convo....my contribution is not making posts that look, or feel, like blind romanticism with teams outside of Canada. I prefer to look reality right in it's ugly face, and call it out when I think it's being stupid.

 

I'd like a lot more fans out there to not have blinders on when addressing people like Bettman, and the ones who are inside the U.S. NHL clubs. Kissing a** is not the thing anyone should do to them. Kicking it is. And not letting them get off without someone taking them to task when I think they're up to no good(which is constantly).

 

Sad to say, but that's true. =P

 

Sorry, but I don't see saying the same thing over and over in a variety of ways as contributing to the conversation. You've made your point. We get it. Move on.

I'm a Missourian who used to live in StL County (in Affton) but doesn't anymore. Hope you like living in St. Louis! I love that city with each and every heartbeat.

Imo's is edible. I've consumed it plenty of times, especially at trivia nights when other people have purchased and brought in Imo's. It's just that if I have a choice of pizzas then it's not going to be at the top of the list.

With all this talk of who should be next for the Cup, location-wise, Minnesota is the next longest, with the N-Stars and the Wild with no Cups. Of course, the Wild are probably at least 5 years from a legitimate run...

 

This also shows that the Wild should have fired Yeo a lot earlier than they did

Only if you give them credit for the years between the Stars and the Wild. Vancouver and Buffalo still have more functional years.

I have a hard time with the notion of sticking the Sharks with a drought all the way back to the Expansion Six...at most, they get "credit" for all the years of "hiatus."

 

I have always thought it a bit odd to connect the Seals/Barrons to the Sharks, anyway.  To me, five of the Expansion Six still exist and all have won a cup.

It does feel weird, but the connection is pretty hard to ignore. To me, it’s dishonest to pretend like they’re a normal expansion team.

Rams lose the Super Bowl and then 4 months later the Blues win their first cup. St. Louis fans have that sly grin on their faces. Karma works in wonderous ways. 

 

*makes grimace, rocks hand side to side*

 

Although considering where the Rams were after the 2016 season, I'll take losing the Super Bowl just two years later.

Firing Mike Yeo pays off 50% of the time.

Ah, poetry.

 

And like the Bruins would be quoting Shakespeare and not yelling “F*** YEAH BOYS” like every hockey team ever. GTFOooooooo.

Bruins fans being pissed off is the only upside of the Blues winning. However, I'd rather have seen the Bruins win anyway.

 

Clearly, since we've seen two first-time champions this season, that means that the Padres are going to go on a miracle run and win the World Series. I WILL NOT BE CONVINCED OTHERWISE.

That Stars-Blues series was insane. I really was hoping Dallas would have won. 

You also had this BS;

I don't care who you are, That never should have counted.

Do people actually listen to these idiots? By that I mean do they get any kind of ratings? Who would find this entertaining? Am I done asking questions? I think so?

The Blues won the Stanley Cup, the Raptors won the NBA Championship, and Banjo-Kazooie is in Super Smash Bros. What timeline is this?

 

But, seriously, from dead last to Stanley Cup Champions! This may well be the greatest NHL Cinderella story ever told, and I'm unreasonably happy that they finally went and did it against all odds.

 

To @rams80, @Mockba, and any other Blues fans on these boards; Congratulations!

Wouldn't it have been fun if the Blues won Wednesday and the Jazz last night?

Enjoy this now because everything will be back to normal when the NFL season kicks off.
