Holy crap! A Canadian team just made it to the conference finals!

Yeah, our Western conf options are a Canadian team that are refugees from Atlanta, or a brand new expansion team in a city that no one is from...

And on the Eastern side, we've got a Russian who can't ever win anything against a Sun Belt team of Scandinavians and Canadians based in God's waiting room.

Good times, hockey!


Can you imagine the disaster of a TV rating that Tampa v Winnipeg is going to get?

It won't be a ratings disaster up here... would be if Tampa and Vegas are the final two...  :buck2:

It's still better than watching baseball.

Vegas in the final we'll get some casual viewers just for the novelty of the expansion team going for the Stanley Cup. The Capitals will give you hours just to see if Ovechkin can finally win. But even people from Tampa Bay don't care about Tampa Bay, and no one cares about Winnipeg

I'd rather watch Winnipeg than a hockey team from Vegas.

I'm all in for whoever comes out of the West. They're both fast and fun to watch.

Well another year to add on to the drought of a Canadian team winning the cup.
