    Also, WTF Jets?
    Jets dominated the 2nd half of the game, I'm not worried yet, but they have to win game 4.

    Also, fuck the NHL if an expansion team wins the cup in it's first year.

    They added a bunch of analytics darlings that finally got the chance. I don't think their coaching staff or front office especially is next level but most of their players have benefited from increased opportunity and ice time.

    I'm having a hard time understanding how much of this success is just the NHL having a pretty flat level of talent. It's hard to see an expansion team assembling an analytics infrastructure that's immediately the class of the league. Other teams have relied on possession numbers to construct their teams and not enjoyed this much success.

    I'm having a hard time understanding that you don't see the obvious improvement of talent in today's game than of yesteryear?

    Yippy... Canada win and move on, along with USA with wins over Russia and the Czech's respectively.

    Likely a Canada/Finland and USA/Sweden semi final.

    Jets are in deep shit... the only thing they have going for them is home ice, they need a miracle.

    The Golden Knights are going to win the Cup, and the NHL is pathetic.

    sucks, I really feel like the Jets have out played the Knights the last few games. Just timely scoring by Vegas and a hot goalie.

    So you're proud that your favourite league is going to be won by a team constructed from everyone else's spare parts? Does that not indicate to you that the league is bland and homogenous?
