The Rite of Spring

Recommended Posts

Nash is lazy, and I've never seen him try except playing for team Canada. He also pulls the same fake glove side go blocker side move almost every time he can. He's incredibly predictable, not a leader (it's sad when he's already been eclipsed in leadership by Jack Johnson), has no drive to succeed, and is highly overrated. The fact that we're gonna get a huge haul for him is fantastic, and I cannot be more excited for his trade.

I wonder if the Jackets ever had anything to play for if you would not see a better effort. When you work in a bad atmosphere or on a bad team it can drag you down too.

I don't think all that highly of Nash. Columbus has been so bad for so long despite him, and up until he asked for a trade "for the good of the team," he'd been disturbingly complacent with that. Great talent in spots, missing something he needs to be truly elite. The Sharks are mollycoddled enough by fans and media for him to thrive. If he goes to Philadelphia or New York, he'll wilt like spinach.

TEN-HOUR NON-EDIT: oh duh or Tronna, that one really won't end well

Added bonus. My BLACK Kings jersey wont have crappy screened shoulder patches like Chicago and Boston from the last two years.

i'm assuming you ordered this before last nights conclusion... Why else would somehow prefer the black jersey over it's white counterpart :)

Nope! Each year I order the jersey that the Cup was won in with the Finals patch. All series long I was in here begging for the Kings to win at home because I think the Home jersey is vastly superior to the road. I would have got the road if I had to but I think the Finals patch looks lost on it because there is so much white already.

Including the Wings?

I have a '97 patch on my Yzerman jersey. I actually own 2 Wings jerseys.

Watch the parade and rally today. Was pretty nice. For some reason I was hoping Gretzky was going to appear at the rally. Overall, was really nice, you could see that the long suffering Kings fans were very happy they finally got to see the Cup.

At the beginning of the season, I put a couple bets in Vegas: For the Kings or Capitals to win the Cup. So I'll obviously be wanting these teams to win. But I like a happy fiance too....so go Vancouver! And I want Nashville to do well. That said:

Rangers over Senators in 6

Bruins over Capitals in 7

Panthers over Devils in 6

Flyers over Penguins in 6

Canucks over Kings in 7

Sharks over Blues in 6

Blackhawks over Coyotes in 6

Predators over Red Wings in 6

Flyers over Rangers in 6

Bruins over Panthers in 5

Canucks over Sharks in 6

Predators over Blackhawks in 7

ECF: Bruins over Flyers in 6

WCF: Predators over Canucks in 6

SCF: Bruins over Predators in 6

I'm glad my predictions in October did better than my predictions in April!

That almost looks like there's no ice on the rink.

Do you mind sharing what your winnings were for betting on the Kings to win it all?

I bet $10 and got a check for $60.

Yeah, I just saw something about a Rick Nash trade and I thought a) WTF and B) Can't they not even trade right now?
