Welp, Sharks where the better team this series. Don't know where Tarasenko was this series until this last 10 minutes but at least he helped make it somewhat interesting.

I'm pretty happy with how well the Blues have re-made their core with younger, more skilled offensively players without completely blowing up the team. Few tweaks here and there and I'm expecting them to be even better next year. First time in a while I haven't been furious after our elimination.

Man, San Jose doesn't respond well to getting beat. Wouldn't be surprised to see Reaves back in the lineup Monday.

After a bit of a train wreck season, finishing 12th isn't too bad. Settle in with the new coach, get some new players, and the Swans are back to being studs next season.

1 more series win and I'm downing a bunch of Anheiser-Busch products and cranking some Nelly.

Also gonna be enjoyable wearing my Blues gear when I move to Arlington next month.
It's getting close... :gocho:

When the Blues play their game they're the better team.

The Stars fake tough guy act is pretty cute though.

Well that was a very unstressful game :billdance:

It is bizarre that the NFL wants nothing to do with Ray Rice now, because of the video evidence, but this guy gets a break.

if there were a video of Hill, he would have never come within a mile of the NFL. even West Alabama might not have taken him.

There's also the fact that Rice a) was nearing washed up status and b) never really seemed to show true regret or remorse for his actions.

I don't like it that the Chiefs drafted him, but at the same time there's a lot of other despicable people playing and working in the NFL. If the kid truly regrets doing it and is trying to better himself I don't have a problem with him getting a second chance, I just wish it wasn't with the team I cheer for.

Glad we won, but this lack of aggression with a lead is going to piss me off

Joda's Fighting Welsh Swan Army is dicking on Liverpool this morning.

The end of this season has been rather depressing, but that was enjoyable.

The Chiefs where never going to draft Lynch. They might have been trying to move up, but it would probably have been for a CB or WR. Lynch was always a smokescreen or a last option if everyone else they wanted was gone. I'm guessing Denver thought they needed to move up not because of the Chiefs drafting there, but if Lynch fell to that spot teams like Dallas, Cleveland, maybe even SF would be bidding for the Chiefs pick. Denver moving up made sure they got their guy, but also devalued the Chiefs pick in a trade down. However, they also had to give up their own 3rd to do it, which in this draft has the potential to be a player who contributes faster than Lynch.

Don't mind the trade out at all. Seems like there where a bunch of players left that would be solid picks at that point. Drop down a few spots and grab 2 more later picks, then still get a decent player.

Ok, nervous poops have finally subsided, so time to focus on round 2. This is pretty much uncharted territory for the Blues. The last time the Blues won a 2nd round game was 2002.

As for the actual matchup, this is an interesting one. Definitely a strength vs strength and weakness vs weakness matchup. Obviously biased but I feel like the Blues have far superior depth than Dallas and that could be the difference in the series, especially with Dallas not 100% healthy.

That being said, holy crap I may be nervous pooping for a month.

Blues even tried to Blues-up the GWG

Just saw this on another forum. Tarasenko's average TOI for this series (remember there's been an OT and a 2OT game) is 17:27. That's ridiculously low for a guy that has been arguably the most dangerous player on the ice for either team. Brouwer has played decent, but he's averaging nearly 3 1/2 more minutes a game.

 :bang:

2nd game in a row the Blues forgot there's a 2nd period

He's not in Manhattan yet and I've claimed him in other threads, but just to make it official I'm taking Nick Lenners.
