I am okay with the portion of that comment that mean that they are rather good in the regular season... on it's own that is rather nice.

Since 1990 only 6 Presidents Trophy winners have won the cup. That is about 25%. So, being a lower or higher seed really does not matter that much... at all.

Flawed statistics.

There are 16 teams in the playoffs. If it didn't matter, the top seed should win 1/16th of the time. But they are four times more likely than random chance to win. That's significant.

Can't wait to go through a Washington Capitals type coaching transition over the next few years.

I heard it has toxic levels of vitamin Sid sux.


That's why I prefer organic polar bear instead of farm raised.

Dumb sheep. You are paying more, but Crosby still sucks.

That "Maesto":

From his facebook page:

The "Maesto" here has his age listed at 40 so it could be? I guess the "Maesto" here can answer this important question.

That was alarmingly informative. Wasn't expecting real info. That dude sounds like he's 80. Never would have guessed him not being some ancient, shakes-fist-at-clouds type.

Although, reading ops posts in maestros voice is hella entertaining.
