Yeah. The Redskins are next.

Congrats to the Capitals, they deserved it.

Hey Barry Trotz, you just won the cup.....you can smile now. Lol

#554 9 months ago

Ovie gets it; well played. Anyone that says fuck as much as that guy on mic it's impossible to hate.

#555 9 months ago

You could sense a look of intensity and determination on the faces of the Caps (especially Ovechkin) before the game. They WANTED that Cup.

Damn impressed that the Caps dispensed with a solid team like the VGK in 5 games!

Congrats to the Caps, and especially former SIOUX Shane Gersich and TJ Oshie!

#556 9 months ago
Quoted from BrooklynDrug:

We can only hope that DIRTY hit Dumo wasn't as bad as it looked. We need him. But it wouldn't be a crapitals series without them injuring one of our players. Happened the last goddamn 3 years, fucking can't do anything so they have to do that. Then, we get a fucking no goal call on us, and Murray clearly interfered with on one of theirs, of course it was allowed. Shitty day for the pens. Pens vs craps and officials more like.
At least we have home ice. Need to nail them both those games, it's a fucking must.

Capitals just won the Cup.

#557 9 months ago

Congrats Caps...and Vegas for such an amazing season.

#558 9 months ago

I was wondering how long it'd be before someone quoted b-drug,lol. Intense game, stayed up and watched it till the end. My wife laughed about the clock. Grats to the Caps, they definitely deserved it.

#559 9 months ago

Well another playoffs in the books. After going down 0-2 to the jackets, who'd of thunk this capitals team would have gone on this run? Congrats.

Overall I found this year didn't have the sizzle of past playoffs. There wasn't a bunch of overtime games and lots of games were lobsided in score and didn't have that next goal wins or ties feeling that I love with playoff hockey.

See ya all again next April.

so glad to see caps win and not a team like Pens or Blackhawks that tanked consecutive seasons to be competitive and have a chance to win.

Yeah, it doesnt have much "sizzle" when you dont follow it that closely.

I followed it very closely and agree that there wasn't a lot of "sizzle". Other than the first round Caps vs BJ where 4 out of 6 games went to OT there weren't a lot of other OT games. There weren't a lot of cliff hanging games. I also think this is the first time we've seen a series where people didn't care, not in a bad way, who won. You had the Knights being the new team and the very likable Fleury vs the CAPS the team that hasn't won it since coming into the league (43 years) and Ovie, one of the greatest goal scorers at the downside of his career.

#564 9 months ago

Glad Washington pulled it together
and got it done this year.
They played as though the Cup belonged to them.
Congrats!

#565 9 months ago

Oops meant the blue jackets. It was 5 am when I posted. haha.

There's a cool vid with Ovie walking thru a casino with cup.

#566 9 months ago

Too funny the topless girl ...you see that??

Well said mesz ..you should consider coaching minor hockey

#567 9 months ago

Also would have had a contract for trotz to sign as soon as he put the cup down.

#568 9 months ago

Bye Vegas!!! So glad they didn't win the cup.

so this isn't his original lap correct? he took that one on his own. this was later???

#572 9 months ago

I went to sleep right after the horn sounded, saw the gifs on reddit, that's about all I know.

#573 9 months ago

Fuck yeah CAPS did it. Now I need to convince the wife to let me buy the 2018 Stanley Cup Final Super Chexx.

#574 9 months ago

Mabey a new tradition? Announcer: ladies please remove your tops

Quoted from dirkdiggler:

Actually they were down 2-0 against the Blue Jackets. Both home losses. It took a double overtime win in game 3 that prevented a sure ouster in the first round. Congrats to the Caps. It is a good thing when marquee players win championships.

#576 9 months ago

looking forward to watching the draft coming up in Dallas. Leafs picks should be interesting. Joe Thornton contract up Mabey to leafs re-uniting with Marleau?

#577 9 months ago
Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

at 39 years old and coming off a torn ACL and MCL .... do you really want him though? He has said he would take a 1 year deal to stay in SJ but I would think you would have to get a deal to resign him in his present state!

#578 9 months ago

HBO/NHL/SHOWTIME.....someone better follow Ovechkin around with a camera this summer to capture his antics with the cup. I think it would make for a funny and interesting documentary.

#579 9 months ago

Caps wanted it more thats for sure. I was away for the entire series so only watched some of it. Thought Vegas would have a better effort in the final. As long as Caps don’t win back to back as a Pens fan I will be happy. How did we all do in our pools, I had Vegas in final with Tampa as winner I believe in start of thread.

#580 9 months ago

Here's the final results for the bracket challenge. Congrats Huff!

I finished dead last. I can only do better next year...right? lol

Where is huff? He won the prize! ...changed it to an exclusive Canadian tire fishing lure

#583 9 months ago

Wait...still have to tally J.O.R score...

#584 9 months ago

Nobody picked the Caps to win. LOL.

I guess it gives those of us in never-have-been markets a little hope.

Quoted from AAAV8R:

yeah and the odds just came out for 2019 and the CAPS are the 8th favored team .... I do think the CAPS will be a one and done winner. Ottawa in last place .... they probably will move the 32nd place with the Hoffman/Karlson drama going on!

Tampa Bay Lightning: 9/1
Boston Bruins: 10/1
Toronto Maple Leafs: 10/1
Vegas Golden Knights: 10/1
Winnipeg Jets: 10/1
Nashville Predators: 11/1
Pittsburgh Penguins: 11/1

Vancouver Canucks: 80/1
Ottawa Senators: 100/1

#586 9 months ago

I wonder how the odds will change with zero chance karlson stays is Ottawa. Sens were already trying to shed the Hofman contract.
Feel sorry for pick 4 in the draft..what a mess in ottawa. Eugene melnyk is not a bad guy and he deserves better. Bryan Murray gone big loss...fans deserve better. Even Alfie jumped ship!

#587 9 months ago

I will be cashing these in (at the Paris in Vegas) in August when I have my next business trip. I placed these last October. If I read the ticket correctly +1100 I think the Caps were going off at 11/1 back in October. Thanks CAPS

I did (see post above). Picked them way back in October. LOL

#589 9 months ago

I wonder if there are any burner accounts in this thread? Could be potential hockey-wife spies!

#590 9 months ago

Watching the NHL network game 3 Pens vs Caps this loss for us Pens did us in for the series.

#591 9 months ago

GO MARLIES!!!! Game 7 ...See some of you guys on the Leafs next year!

#592 9 months ago

Whoa Trotz retires...didn;t see that coming!

Yeah headed to (apparently) the Islanders! First step in dismantling a Championship team. Carlson could be next.

#594 9 months ago

The frikkin Islanders?!? How much money do you need?

Quoted from meSz:

haha that's what they said when Disco Dan danced his way out Of course it took awhile.

#595 9 months ago

If he's headed to the NYI then Tavares isn't sticking around...that's for damn sure.

#596 9 months ago

Congrats Marlies!!!!! 2018 Calder Cup Champs!

#597 9 months ago

Hey congrats! I was referring to our Pinside pool but I'm happy to see someone had the nards to bet that the Caps would finally overcome the one-and-done curse.

*****

My 13 year old daughter wants hockey to start again. She says her income from the house "swear jar" has been pretty slim pickens since the season ended.

Pretty hard to get worked up over a baseball game.

The BIG question is ..... does Hoffman stick with the fiance now or dump her for (allegedly) causing all of this?!?!?!
