Can we mention Spano? That must diminish some of those accolades.

Spano was part of the Fishsticks era. It was one transgression.

Personal attacks are not necessary.

Also, @k9dr cannot complain about the bubble because his team won? So if Toronto won a Cup, you would have no reason to complain?

:unsure:

I guess your salty attitude is here to stay.

But seriously, I don't need fucking negativity and almost blocked you until your comment about no one in GTA being laid since 1967.... Then I realized you might have a sense of self-deprecating humor.

I apologize to the city of Nashville if its feelings were hurt.

So, what's the wager @WedgeRock - pink slips, legal vs veterinary services, x amount of $ per game in the series, or just a single wager on the entire series ??
Um, chips. Duh.

I have two custom sets (BCC tourney and ASM cash). I know you have Suicide Queens and the GOT relabels.

Winner picks a chip from the Loser's custom set?

Can someone explain how the league decided how to match up the semi-finals? Was this pre-determined at the start of the year or was there some sort of 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 ranking by way of season points?

Also, I fully expect that be sending a chip... Tampon Bay looks tough to beat.

I said before the draft that the Islanders should've taken Hedman instead of Tavares, but no one listens to me.

I only have 4 chip samples left of my Suicide Queens - no fracs - and only a few extra Iron Bank chips, but no complete sample sets.

Let me know if this works and post up what chips I’m winning you are wagering ;)

I can do a 4-chip of my cash, same denoms: $1, $5, $20 and $100. Check Chiptalk for pics. ;)

The Islanders were underdogs to the Penguins and the Bruins... those series worked out pretty well.

@Marc Hedrick's boss got a pretty good number on taking the Islanders to win the Cup after Game 3 of the Bruins series (when the Islanders were down 2-1).

Also, this year, we didn't win game 7 and have to fly from Toronto to Edmonton the same night and play the next night in Game 1 against the Lightning, so I am expecting a closer game than Game 1 last year.

The Lightning were arguably underdogs to the Panthers and Hurricanes too.

Both teams are well rested and I don’t expect a high scoring game - something like 3-1 Lightning with an empty netter.

I will be in Las Vegas for games 3 and 4 of the series and look forward to watching the games in a nice sports book - maybe the new one at Circa.

I may even try to go to the Vegas/Montreal game 2 on Wednesday.

Circa's sportsbook may have an entrance fee. It was our original plan to stay there Mon-Wed, but we killed that because of outrageous fees (parking, resort, pool, & sportsbook).

Meanwhile, here in Pahrump (passing through to Death Valley), the Golden Knights are at -700 o_O for Monday's game. Compared to my online platform (which I cannot use in NV), I gotta guess there is an overabundance of love here for the local team.

I would take Montreal for +700 :cautious:

I want to say the Canadiens were +2-something, Like +215 or +225.

It wasn't enough to take a flier on the game. I think the Knights will win the series, but won't sweep. With deep enough odds, I'd put money on it, but this wasn't it.
