    I'm excited as fuck for this series. Many storylines.
    - Ovi's first cup appearance
    - Vegas' inaugural season
    - These two goalies
    - The Vegas goalie thing at the beginning of the season (Subban, Legace)
    - The Caps goalie thing at the beginning of the playoffs (Grubauer vs. Holtby)
    - 4th to 1st liner Tom Wilson

    I think:
    1) You are rooting for Ovi to get his first cup.
    2) You are rooting against Ovi to get his first cup.
    3) You love the Vegas story and you want them to win the cup.
    4) You hate the Vegas story and you want them to lose the cup.

    Pick two. I'm 2 and 3. Fuck Ovi. Love Vegas. hahahhaa

    The best storyline started last year as Fleury, the Pens and fans came to grips with their parting and banishing him to the desert, in expansion hell. While they'd chase a 3rd consecutive Cup. Theo exited with grace and a smile, as we all marveled that he was a better man than me. A good karma story indeed.

    The two other players I'm most looking forward to watching because of the exciting way they've been playing hockey this year and especially in the playoffs, does not include Ovi.

    Kuznetsov and Marchessault. Kuz's skill level has been on full display and it is off the charts. If you can forget about Ovi's one-timer, this guy creates the most heart stopping chances one could want. Opportunities only to be rivaled by the little wonder. Another guy who seems to be making things happen constantly for that Vegas squad. If you haven't been watching Vegas in the playoffs, you are in for a treat. You'll also wonder how the Rangers among others, let him go. Answer: Torts/Sather and other dinosaurs did not like his size.

    The McPhee storyline is pretty interesting too, but easy to forget since he is not the talent we watch.

    Oddly enough, McPhee practically built both these teams. Wasn’t he with the Islanders organization before going to Vegas?

    It is an unreal story with the VGK and I keep picking against them and they keep proving me wrong. I'm looking forward to this and hit should be fun.

    Yes to all of that. I was mentioning in another thread that he drafted 15 or 16 of the current Caps. He did a great job, with the exception of the catastrophic trade of one of his best selections to Nashville for a rental.

    I always had a warm spot for George, of course, he started his career with the Rangers. Here was a little 5'9" kid who'd scrap with anybody and quickly became a fan favorite at the Garden.

    So McPhee covered the entire NY metro, since he went on to play for the Devils. Not sure how long his front office stint was on the Isle, before he took over in Washington.

    I'm picking 1 and 4 but substituting Trotz for Ovi. He's a good guy that's been around a long time, he's earned it.....

    Fuck I wish the game was tonight. Mike and I were talking last night about how much more enjoyable the playoffs are without the anxiety of watching the Rangers

    Genuinely can’t get my head around why anyone would “hate” the Vegas story.
    I have yet to hear a single good argument for it.

    Apart from losing the opportunity for a 1st from Tampa I’m absolutely loving this years final.
    Both teams fully deserving of getting out of their conferences.
    If Ovi wins that’s cool.
    If Vegas wins it’s incredible.

    Can’t really ask for more with the Rangers out of the picture.

    white gloves + ugly jerseys vs. red,white,blue + mismatched helmet/jersey color
    Lindberg vs. Backstrom
    Reaves vs Wilson

    What it comes down to, for me, is that Vegas has 12 A's... and that's too fucking dumb.

    I don't want Washington to win, because I hate them.
    I don't want Vegas to win, because their fans are annoying.

    That being said, I'll be rooting for Vegas.

    Vegas winning is sort of like a team like the Kansas City Royals winning a championship. Basically nobody would care other than their extremely small base.

    Caps in six. I should probably know better than to bet against Vegas, but I so badly want the Ovechkin playoff narrative to die that I'm going against my better judgment.

    Before games 6 & 7 of the ECF I was convinced that whoever won would be chucked in to the Vegas grinder and spat out in 5. Now I’m not so sure.
    This Caps team has found a gear I don’t think anybody predicted they had. They’re faster, younger and play harder than the previous teams that failed. And Ovi looks like a man on a mission.

    I’m tempted to go Caps in 6 as well.

    Seems to me the entire hockey world is completely caught up in the Vegas story so I’m not sure I follow you there.
