Maybe the 6-games last year were more 2-2 than 3-1 after 4 or something, because I agree. This year has felt less intense, more predictable. Even though before the playoffs started, I was telling everyone they were the least predictable. Who knows.

I think its because there wasnt a lot of do or die games so far where you couldnt tell who was going to win.
What I mean is, a WPG-MIN, TB-NJ, NAS-COL game 5 is boring when the fav is already up 3-1, or even game 6 3-2. Those 3 series went exactly as most predicted.
Vegas+SJ swept away 2 teams that might have made game 6/7's.
Then you got PIT-PHI I never felt like philly was in that series for even a minute.

CBJ-WAS was good, and would have been a great game 7.
Leafs-Bruins has been perfect, game 7 will be awesome.

All that said, if the Leafs win, the 2nd round will be absolute GOLD for a fan like me. I would love all 4 series.

Vegas+Leafs are my 2 faves to watch these days. Then the other 2 series feature PIT-WAS and NAS-WPG? Oh man, love it. GO LEAFS GO, please please please!

2/0 in must win games!

Hamburgerler stole that game for the Avs. Dude was flailing and flopping all over the place. He seemed to be looking for the puck after every save as if he had no idea where the puck was but somehow kept blocking shots. It was amazing to watch.

good feeling last night as me and my buddy might have saved a life, maybe more.

We were driving back from San Jose hockey game. On the freeway we notice a bmw swerving and driving erratically. It was obvious the driver was drunk. It kept on for a while and we called 911 and got connected to CHP(California Highway Patrol). About 4-5 miles later the cops managed to stop him with our tip. Hopefully he is in jail right now and maybe we saved his life and possibly other innocent lives.

Its amazing that drunk driving is still happening. I hope the guy gets a stern lesson and realizes he dodged a bigger bullet.

I weigh about 146 right now but I have no spleen (seem to have been born without one). Since I started all the walking I've lost weight and for sure gained muscle.

If you want to lose weight and eat as much as you like just walk for 6-8 hours every day like I do, it's easy.

Monday , 28K steps
Tuesday. 40K steps
Wednesday 32K steps
Thursday 22K steps

Yeah drinking > eating but both are great. Drinking and eating while playing poker is peak existence though, and that pretty much sums up my upcoming weekend.

Yeah, I was noticing that last night too. I'm not sure there's much potential at all for a 7-gamer in this round.

The two I predicted to go 7 were both sweeps.

Obv itís Butcher that prompted this, but was more interested in generalities.

Itís probably close.

I think trading away obvious value for a shot at an expensive player who stands a good chance of being overpriced in 3 years is a bad gamble, but I've said too much.

Well it's official guys, store is sold and I will be unemployed for the first time ever in my life.

27 years of scooping will come to an end next month. My plan is simple enjoy the next 6 months to the fullest than decide on my 2nd career/job.

At 42 I realized, I've spent way too much time working first half of my life, if I am lucky enough to hit 80 I will do the exact opposite for the second half of my life.
