My upcoming lack of support has nothing to do with how I think the Flyers will do on the ice. I think there is a good chance they will do better in the next year or two because of hiring Torts.

That said, he's an absolute garbage human being which I have no intention of supporting.

There goes my Flyers wedding gift.  :lol

Ferraro is the one driving me crazy. He’s full on lube and edible undies for the AVs. Not even shy about fan boying out.

Thankfully, Canada has its own broadcast team.

Excellent game.  I'm not terribly stuffed about who wins this - though it would make the Leafs' 1st round loss more palatable if it was to the eventual champs.  I'm just enjoying the excellent hockey.  Man the Avs are fast.

In all honesty neither am I.....I just like to have a team to root against and the AV's are a pretty easy target considering the whole Kadri thing.

It was a good game....Colorado came out flying as usual and it took a bit for TB to get their bearings. One thing that isn't mentioned much because the players will downplay it BUT....altitude is a factor when playing in Colorado.

Yeah, I'd meant to mention that.  It was quite clear Vas in particular was struggling at times - especially that 2nd goal.  Even up to the puck drop at center ice, he was still gasping for air.  Two more days ought to help, but it's definitely still a factor.

I was right there with Cooper when the AV's were gifted that 5-3 to assure they scored on the PP.....super weak call....only call on that play should have been called a dive.

Ferraro sounds like he is constantly fighting to keep his teeth from flying out of his skull while he's talking.

This can't actually happen can it?  Those f*****s in Vegas are going to do it.  They managed to clear cap space to spend for the offseason.

I don't disagree with that at all.  Thorne did a Kings game or two a few years ago while Bob Miller was transitioning into retirement, and it was great hearing him again.  That said, I really like Ray Ferraro.

Ferraro usually bugs me, but he really hasn't during these playoffs. Probably because he's paired with Sean McDonough who is awful on hockey.

Good to see Colorado gets their obligatory PP and subsequent goal to start t he game about 15 seconds after they got away with a blatant hook.

Letting in 7 is pretty rough, but the entire team is scoring zero.  I wouldn’t bury the casket just yet.

Goes without saying that this Pretty much makes G3 a must win for TB.

It’s baffling how bad TB looked. The AVs are good and all but TB looked horrid. Hedman for TB had a horrific game….among others.

DeBoer rumored to be close to a 4 year deal worth $4mil a year to coach the Stars.  How does this guy keep getting hired? Are there that few people able to coach a Pro team?

I think it's more like the pool of candidates that certain GMs trust to get the job done is pretty limited.

NHL coaches are pretty rigid in a sense that when some gets fired, they somehow end up with another team in short order.

It's relatively safe to say that if Trotz wanted to accept a job by now, he could have. He seems to be the one taking his time making a decision.

He’s just waiting on his partial ownership of the Red Wings to be ratified by the powers that be. I think Steve Y will get him

I think for Trotz, I've been reading that he is going to end up in Winnipeg or want a more managerial role in Nashville.
