God I hope not. Anyone but Pittsburgh, more or less. Or the islanders of course, but come on.

The Wild suck. Hockey is stupid. TIP TIP TIP BASHAROOOOOOOO

I bet they make the conference finals, unless they play the Hawks in the semis and piss down their leg per use.

The #2 seeded Lightning against the #3 seeded Detroit Red Wings. We're also getting the classic 2-2-1-1-1 home/away scheduling and the games are every other night, until game 6 (if necessary). Must be a Kid Rock concert at the Joe Louis/Little Caesar's Arena on the 23rd.

I've watched less than 10 minutes of Red Wings games this year. Ignorance has never stopped a Hot Taek, so here we go. First up, Detroit.

Downtown Detroit is a glorious place to visit:

Image

Crime is not an issue, not with this guy keeping the peace:

Image

I thinks this is their team owner:

Image

These are their greatest musicians (Motown, not pictured):

Image

Their best teams looked like this in the 1990's (not sure if that's the Russian Hockey team or Kraftwerk):

Image

They've won 4 Stanley Cups since 1990 and are considered underachievers.

This guy, who looks like a Russian serial killer, and probably is, has already announced that he's leaving Detroit to go back to Russia after the season. That should tell you everything you need to know about living in Detroit.

Image

I can tell you one thing, Niklas Lidstrom isn't walking through that door, Sergei Federov isn't walking through that door, and Terry Sawchuck ain't walking through that door.

But most importantly, Steve Yzerman is not walking through that door.

Image

That's because he's our GM.

Image

Even with Stralman and Stamkos out at least we've still got Tyler Johnson (wait..what's that? Johnson was injured in a boarding penalty penalty against those dirty Les Habs that didn't even make the playoffs). :evil:

I still have faith in me. Two Cup-worthy goalies and a strong team is better than whatever Detroit is.

Plus, we'll always have this:

Image

While Detroit has this:

Image

I don't see the Wings taking four games from me, even with this guy in their corner:

I'll take the Lightning in six.

Hey, nonhockey fans: do you ever wish that Steph Curry played a sport where being a whiny soft pussy is actually looked down upon and had the added sense of entitlement of being anointed the future of the sport whilst a teenager? Then you're going to love Sidney Crosby!!! Everything is there: the phenomenal talent, the adolescent facial hair, the mouth guard chewing, the looking like he's about to cry when things don't go his way. And nut punching. Hard for me to determine whether sburgh will win another cup bc I've yet to work whether God is nonexistent or malevolent. Give me some time.

Sadly, for the purposes of this series, I think the injuries to mcdonagh, Girardi et al. will cripple the blueline and they can I'll afford that against these guys. Lundqvisthero will push this series to 7, and maybe they can steal it, but they'll be sitting ducks in round 2. Zuccarello for president of Norway-Italy.

Ducks-Preds.

When I had a quarter season ticket package I think I saw over 10 Preds games. No one should have to do that. The games were chippy.

Here is a tidbit for bsmb, which I think is appropriate since he requested the assignment. Former Anaheim Duck defensemen Sheldon Souray is married to WWE diva Kelly Kelly

Image

Preds player Mike Fisher is married to Carrie Underwood

Image

The Ducks have 2 goalies that are kind of co-starters and I haven't heard of either. I think there is an axiom in hockey if you have 2 goalies you have none.

The Preds have Pekka Rinne between the pipes. I think he is good. He should steal at least one if not two games by standing on his head.

The Preds also traded the son of Popeye Jones for the Blue Jackets best player Ryan Johansen. He is a #1 center.

Yeah I know that about Kelly Kelly. I follow her on IG. She posted something yesterday about having to get back to work. (She's on a reality show about gold diggers called WAGS)
