2023 Stanley Cup Playoffs
« on: April 26, 2023, 10:10:07 PM »
Game 5, Seattle at Colorado:

Avs star Nathan MacKinnon thought he was tripped but nothing was called. He slammed his stick in protest and took his time getting to the bench as he jawed with the ref.

That resulted in a slow line change for the Avs ... which gave the Kraken an advantage as they raced into Colorado ice ... and the Kraken scored the go-ahead goal.

The Boston Bruins had what arguably was the best regular season in NHL history.

I'm guessing they'd have traded all the records they set for a longer playoff run.

Rooting for a Leafs / Oilers final so one of the most bizarre streaks in sports history can finally be broken - it's been 30 years since a Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup. I know there are fundamental economic differences that make it difficult for Canadian teams, but even then it's a ridiculous streak. It included six Canadian teams making the finals, three of those series going seven games, and two times when the Canadian team had a 3-2 series lead and could have closed it out at home.

In the 30 years prior to the Habs win in 1993, Canadian teams won 20 of the 30 Stanley Cups.

Oh ... it was actually unintentional. Didn't mean to reference the Marquette debate.

Meanwhile ...

In addition to the record-setting and prohibitive-favorite Bruins getting ousted, the defending Stanley Cup champion Avalanche are out after the Kraken beat them 2-1 in Game 7 last night.

It appeared that the Avs had tied the game early in the third period, but the Kraken won a challenge that the Avs had gone offside on the play and the goal was taken off the board. Seattle then withstood a late barrage to hold on, becoming the only team in NHL history to beat the defending champs in its first-ever playoff series.

Because of the bounces that pucks take -- there were 2 playoff goals scored off guys' faces, for example -- and because of the outsized role a goaltender can play, the Stanley Cup playoffs are as close as pro team sports come to being ... speaking of debates that go on too long ... a crapshoot.

Snoop Dogg part of group bidding for the Ottawa Senators.

It appears Ryan Reynolds is not the only A-list celebrity with an eye towards purchasing the Ottawa Senators.
The Athletic has learned that Snoop Dogg has aligned himself with the bid fronted by Los Angeles-based entrepreneur Neko Sparks.
Sources with knowledge of the Sparks bid — but who are not authorized to speak publicly on the matter — confirmed the iconic hip-hop artist has joined forces with Sparks in an aggressive pursuit of the Ottawa Senators franchise.

While not TECHNICALLY incorrect, the talking of this bid being Neko Sparks' is hilarious.  He's a no name wannabe actor who seems to be friendly with people in Hollywood like the Rock.  The vast majority of the money is coming from the Reuben Brothers, who are basically the richest dudes in the UK, and the Rock.

Spark's Twitter profile pic is him standing in front of the Senator's home ice wearing a messenger bag, while getting a tour of the arena.  Hilarious

7 games series now crapshoots?    This is the proof we just need to use regular season analytics to determine the post season champs.

I was thinking that too, it’d be wild if three Chicago teams ended up with the first overall pick in the same year.

Tempe voters rejected a proposal for a new Coyotes arena, and the team is now considered likely to leave Arizona.

The proposal called for the arena to be privately funded but opponents of the deal said it would have given the owner more than $500 million in tax breaks. They also were still upset that the team has unpaid bills from when it played in suburban Glendale.

Cities talked about include Atlanta -- which already has failed twice to as an NHL city but is buildng a new suburban arena -- Houston and Salt Lake City.

Move to Hartford where this team will be welcome almost unconditionally.
Hartford/New Haven market is regularly Top 10 in NHL viewership.
Whalers gear is still among the best selling for NHL items.
Connecticut has some of the best hockey talent outside Minnesota and Massachusetts.
And the college teams sell out and win championships and go to Frozen 4s.

This is interesting.  The new arena (or at least "a" new arena) is part of a large mixed use development planned for about 3-4 miles from where I live  in northern suburban Atlanta, I just read the announcement about it within the past week.  Wonder if that's the one.  Do you have any other details?

I love Quebec City, and it certainly would be the romantic choice. But it's a metro area of about a million and it brings nothing to the TV folks.

I'd love to have the Whalers back and I think they'd be supported. I agree with Sultan about the XL Center, though, and I also wonder if Boston would have veto power. (I'm not sure how the latter works in the NHL.)

Toronto would be the best choice, but can't imagine the Leafs allowing that.
Houston has a ton of advantages.  Largest market without a team. Adequate arena. History of support for hockey (the AHL team there did well until it moved). Lots of corporate dollars. No need for conference realignment. Bittman gets to keep a team in the southern US.

Houston is the leader. Totally agree about Toronto being able to support a second team but it's been floated many times before and the Leafs won't allow it.

Agreed, and I think there is not-insignificant amount of Canadian transplants in the greater Houston area from the O&G industry, which could help.

Yea, obviously not the way it was intended, but the Blackhawks have now completely “cleaned house” from 2010. Literally nobody left.

From what I’ve heard, when Jerry dies, Michael Reinsdorf is gonna keep the Bulls but sell the Whote Sox.

Truly complex.  Brought the Hawks back from irrelevance and absolutely captured the city for a 5 year stretch.  I know the Bears always have top billing, but the Hawks had a chokehold on the city from 2010 until the Cubs took the WS.  And from many accounts, from my friends and other acquaintances, Rocky was a really nice, friendly, and gracious guy.

…but there is literally no denying the stain of the last few years.  Complicated legacy indeed.

Kind of crazy…Bill Wirtz died months after the Hawks selected Kane first overall.  Now Rocky passes right after the Hawks selected Bedard first overall.

The timing as you mentioned is crazy from a hockey aspect. It’s also interesting that Rocky’s immediate goal was to clean up his dad’s mess, and now Danny will I assume try to clean up Rocky’s mess.

What’s interesting is there have been very soft whispers that once Jerry Reinsdorf were to pass, that he had a gentleman’s agreement with Rocky for Jerry’s White Sox shares to have some (all?) right of first refusal go towards Rocky. Jerry & Rocky were close friends, I have not heard that about Danny Wirtz & Michael Reinsdorf.

Wait to see, but in a city with very old primary owners of each sports team, no one expected Rocky to die first (as morbid as that sounds).

Wait to see, but in a city with very old primary owners of each sports team, no one expected Rocky to die first (as morbid as that sounds).

Now that Queen Elizabeth has passed, Virginia McCaskey has ascended to the role of very rich old woman in the spotlight who seemingly will live forever.

What’s interesting is there have been very soft whispers that once Jerry Reinsdorf were to pass, that he had a gentleman’s agreement with Rocky for Jerry’s White Sox shares to have some (all?) right of first refusal go towards Rocky. Jerry & Rocky were close friends, I have not heard that about Danny Wirtz & Michael Reinsdorf.

That makes a lot sense from the perspective that Michael has little to no interest in the White Sox.
