    Hard to have structure when the NHL let's the douchebag get away with douchey doucheyness.

    How the fcuk is that NOT interference on the goal to send it to OT?

    It has everyone puzzled @Regs
    Haven't heard a single person say it was alright or have a justified reason as to how it wasn't.

    I picked up on his pad grab on the first replay, even before Elliot Friedman if you can believe that! Not sure how anyone else didn't.

    I thought the same thing on the replays, well spotted as was thinking the same thing - how did they all miss that after 1 replay look, nevermind the 20th!

    Like the announcers said, one of the fastest reviews so far. And being a key moment in the game how do you not let the review room do it instead of the refs on their iPad mini?

    Is it possible they were instructed to look at 1 thing and one thing only? And ignore the rest?
    Even then do you ignore Perry pushing on Talbots left leg? Or Kesler pulling on his right?
    You can see Talbot trying to close the 5 hole but not able to pull his leg in. It's embarrassing for the NHL really.

    They were probably instructed to look if Nurse pushed Kesler into the crease and that only (he did).

    Still don't know how they could overlook the douchebag pulling on the pad.

    Agreed on all points but it never should have came to this. 3 goals in the final 3 minutes with an empty net!!! No way the kids recover from that. Stick a fork in it. This series is done!

    To be fair, it was 2 goals in the last 3 minutes as the last one shouldn't have counted :)

    To be fair I was 3/4's into a 40 of rum at the time so my observations could possibly be off some what. :vomit:

    This Rangers and Senators series is giving the above one a run for the title. Jesus!

    I don't think the oilers can recover from the game 5 collapse. Too inexperienced.

    :finger: Kesler.

    All depends on which Oilers team shows up for game 7. And I guess Anaheim Dicks too. Neither seems to be consistent.

    Other than game 3, the Oilers have held minimum 2 goal leads in every game. Even in game 3 where the dicks jumped out to a 3-0 lead, the Oilers scored 3 straight to even it up.

    I like the Oilers chances for Wednesday!

    I'm hoping for the Preds in the west and even though I picked the Rangers to beat the Sens I wouldn't mind seeing them in the final.

    I'm sure the NHL will do anything to prevent that from happening. I can't imagine how low the TV ratings would be for a Pred vs. Sen final.

    I can get behind a Sen cup not only to see Burrows win a cup but I think it would really bother most Leaf fans and that makes me happy.

    After Round 2

    @STD - 8pts (0pts left up for grabs.)
    @Yoda - 7pts (2pts left up for grabs. 9 pt ceiling)
    @dezza - 7pts (0pts left up for grabs.)
    @BJB - 7pts (0pts left up for grabs.)
    @Regs - 7pts (0pts left up for grabs.)
    @akslop - 6pts (2pts left up for grabs.8 pt ceiling)
    @Sir M - 6pts (0pts left up for grabs.)
    @The Franchise - 4pts (0pts left up for grabs.)

    Basically a piss poor effort by all and everyone should be ashamed of themselves.

    @Yoda can catch and pass @STD with a Pitts win and in seven games. @akslop can Catch @STD with and Ana win in 6 in RD 3. That's Not gonna happen.

    I just realized I forgot to put up the rules for pts. I must have been drinking when i posted. Shocking! So we will make them up as we go.

    1 pt for predicting correct team and bonus pt for correct number of games the series is won in

    In the event of a tie @Yoda takes first prize ( sweet Fcuk all) the title as the incumbent from the regular season pool. This was for bragging rights only and its not something any of you / us should want to be bragging about after this performance.

    Should some how @akslop catch and tie @STD the title would go to @STD because I dont want it.

    P.s @The Franchise . No need to tank anymore

    Asklop it may be a pile of poop but I'd rather be on top of the pile than be on the bottom.

    Yoda remember what happened to your mother in law when she tried to take the ball from me
