Rite of Spring 2013 (NHL Playoffs): "You have no fear of the underdog, that's why you will not survive."

Recommended Posts

Can this be renamed, "Rite of Spring, 2013?"

Well, I was going to call this year's thread "You have no fear of the underdog, that's why you will not survive" in honor of Spoon, but clearly I lost the worm here. This is worse than how I went to get donuts for breakfast this morning and they were out of vanilla with sprinkles.

EDIT: d'aww, you're the best. Stravinsky and Spoon, together at last!

I edited the title...hope that satisfies. Let me know if it's too much crap.

Perfect title. This will be a fun year -- I fully expect the Wings to somehow rekindle the playoff magic for a round and then flame out as the fan base gains confidence, as usual.

HOORAY PLAYOFFS.

Because it not Nicklebacky enough.

PLAYOFFS! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Except, please Christ, not the Red Wings again. I am tired of the playoff Red Wings and the Joe and the octopi. Ducks have played Detroit 5 out of their 8 postseasons. (2-3 against. Both wins they went to the Final. So idk.) This would be the first time the Ducks would have had home ice against Detroit, so that's nice? I'd just rather not.

Go Columbus, Dallas, Minnesota.

Also Andy, a request, if I may? Can we just use the Ducks' D logo? Everyone else does. Hell the team itself uses the D logo in every available place (except the home and roads, but the 3rd will be the playoff homes. So.) The full wordmark just looks pathetic in small applications, especially like this against the rest of the leagues proper crests. (and I know the Caps have the wordmark, but it has more height to it. It works for them.) Thank you! :)

I'm not gonna lie, I copied and pasted the potential playoff tree from some other site. Once the bracket's officially set I'll try to find a bracket that appeals to your request.

Was expecting Mr. admiral to be the author of this thread, however. But that's just a minor comment.

I'm not sure if I made a huge error...has admiral created this thread for a few years now? His branding is reflected in the title, so I believe we're safe.

The Blackhawks have called up the entire Rockford roster to play tonight. Congrats on that fourth seed, Blues.

Toronto-Montreal and (likely) NY Rangers-Boston in the first round.

Those matchups are better than porn. And it wouldn't be the worst thing if Detroit snuck in as #8, with Columbus winning and Minnesota losing tonight. Red Wings-Blackhawks for the last time as Conference foes would also be a fitting meeting.

But I wanted to end Vancouver's playoff run....

That's not true. They didn't call up Kyle Beach, their miserable final attempt at a high first-round pick. (Worst part is that he was 2008, a year when freaking everyone got a great player in the first round.) But yeah, I'm almost tempted to watch this game.

Did you know that the last three teams to end the Canucks season in the playoffs (CHI, BOS, LA) became the eventual Stanley Cup champions.

So congrats on the Stanley Cup, to whoever is #6 in the West.

That's just weird looking at that bracket and seeing the Islanders on there and the not the Devils and Flyers.

There was a post about a week ago (BigEd, was it?) that mentioned that, since 1982-83, there has never been a postseason where both the Devils and Flyers missed out.

Well, jeez, I think the Flyers have only missed twice in the past 20 years (2007 was the other), and I think the Devils have only missed twice since 1996 (2011 was the other). Short seasons can really wreak havoc on everything. Only in the past two weeks did the Flyers finally look to be putting things together, and if there were 58 games, not 48, they might have squeezed in.
