And conditioned to play like a marathon sprinter on roids who is also blood doping between periods.

I'm guessing that Vegas now ranks just behind the Rangers, Blackhawks, and Bruins.....

I'm curious where Stone lines up below Messier.

I guess the silver lining if any is that we will have some context as Vegas carries on its cup quest. How will Dallas deal with the knights

And yeah fuck Vegas
If the juice monkeys are still flying they'll destroy the sharts

They were pretty fucking impressive today. Too bad the Canucks had to square away St. Louis before facing the knights.

That’s two heavy goon squads in a row. 13 games. Kinda understandable they didn’t have anything left for game 7.
Benning needs to find a couple big nasty Motherfuckers for the bottom six.

There needed to be an answer to Reaves in game one

Rouster is too small and Sorry but Virtanen just doesn’t have the marbles.

Can't believe we lost because of an effing, stupid horse race!!! Who watches that shit except for fat foreign dweebs.
Bettman kisses NBC's ass too much.
Game 7 should have been Saturday and we would still be celebrating.
I hope more comes of this.
The Canucks officially asked for the game to be moved to Saturday.

this was actually round three. the record books need to be changed.

I wonder the players had not walked off the job for two days if things would have player out differently? This isn't all on Bettman.

Put down the scotch guard. The Triple Crown is massive. Just because you don’t like it is irrelevant. It’s a big thing in the US and in pockets of Canada.

It's a dumb f*cking sport cowboy. Cruel too. And I'll complain al I want about it. I think you should be more concerned about Crown in the Royal
variety, MM? That's massive.

Ya, Wids, both the delay for the blm and the not getting Friday off hurt the Canucks.

I don’t give a shit what you want to whine about. The fact is that the Triple Crown a big deal and a big moneymaker down south. Hockey hardly registers south of the border.

I will always be bitter, losing this round. It was ours! We were destined to carry into the third round. (which was really like a fourth).
We were cheated twice. The first time the cancellation for blm that was supposedly our idea but the only evidence,
if you want to call it that, was this;
Larry Brooks@NYP_Brooksie
Told that the Canucks were the driving force behind ultimate position taken by players not to play...
11:54 AM · Aug 27, 2020 https://twitter.com/NYP_Brooksie/status ... 0166422529
Which means nothing in retrospect. Sweet FA as a matter a fact :look: Knights benefited from the rest they got and won the cancelled game.
Obviously the Canucks team said they were on board with it. They have to say that.

The second, and ultimately the last as it turned out was because of scheduling a game that could and should have been
played on Saturday instead of Friday. Mr. Aquilini got GM Jim Benning to lobby the league for this but were denied. The Canucks thought the
ice surface would be far superior with the full set time. That was the reasoning.

This was a Cinderella run the Canucks were on. One that I was really believing the Cup was ours to win. Woulda been maybe too.
The freaking horse race is not a good enough excuse to have used to deny the Cancuck approval on their request. We would have won...
Really. The "there's always another time" don't cut it. Bitter forever...................
