I know people who hate Vegas because the nhl gave them a great team (yeah yeah). Well the refs robbed them tonight.  That was an awful call.  

Not really. I mean the game went to OT. Vegas choked regardless.

No it wasn't. The Jets scored 2 goals in a minute in game 6. Leafs a few years ago lost when winning by 2 or 3 with a couple minutes to go. The game wasn't over. Vegas also had a 3 1 series lead and failed. Bottom line... The game was tied going to OT.. Sharks won. Knights and their entitled fanbase lost.

In the 25 years before Gary Bettman became full time commissioner of the NHL Canadian teams won the cup at a clip of 60% (15/25).

It started with the Rangers who bought all the ex-Oilers and for the next 10 there was no salary cap so Canuck teams had no chance and then when they did bring in one it took another 5 to even things up.

As for the last 10 years...well the odds are even but they outnumber us 4-1.

But we're Canadians so we'll pay more for tickets and beer and TV rights and say its our game.

I wouldn't cheer for any other Canadian team and I wouldn't expect their fans to cheer for the Jets. I feel absolutely no relationship to any of them. 

Once the Jets are out, the playoffs are dead to me. :) Go Blue.

I don't care how far the Blue Jackets go, unless they win the Stanley Cup, I consider what Kekäläinen did to be too reckless. That team is going to be baddddd for a long time after this year. No one is going to stick around. Maybe they overpay for Duchene and keep him but that's no prize.
