Need clarification, your family says "Fuck Tampa", "All my homies hate Tampa" or "Homies help homies"?

The homies help homies line.

The adults are still sad at Tampa for that loss in the 2002 NFC Championship game. The final Eagles game at the Vet...

So F Tampa too. ha ha

All statements valid and justifiable, even for minors.

I am sad. My Avs sold round two for the third straight year. Grubauer was godly. Mackinnon sucked large ass. I am very saf😥😥😥😢😢😢

The press conference with MacKinnon was tragic.  He was not having any of it.

I'm a Grubauer fan and I'm sad for him.......but.....I'm also really excited about Price vs. Fleury. It's going to be fun to watch.

Did you hear the guy who dropped an f-bomb in his super professional question? Mack was pissed.

Ha, yes.  It was so awkward.  Even the moderator was stunned and she just moved right along to the next question.  Such a weird moment.

If anyone want to watch, it's a short video

They will be eaten alive, not only by the fans but the Knights. 

The Habs might lose to the Knights, but it would have fuck all to do with a bunch of people who think they’re taking in a Vegas show off the strip. Want glitz and dancing girls? Go to a casino. 

Another possibility is that Price bests Fleury (if you heard that story about that one person in the world who hates Fleury, that’s me; I’m that guy), Perry makes Stone his bitch, and Pacioretty gets caught up in the “old team that turfed him” mentality. Throw in some special teams, and a bit of puck luck. Basically, the Habs could win this thing. It’s not a fait accompli that Vegas wins (despite all the favouritism and help Bettman has bestowed upon his pet project).

Knights are a HEAVY team which the Habs won't be able handle I don't think, not against the boards or infront of the net. Price wasn't tested enough I don't think. They barley had a cycle game vs the Leafs or the Jets, Leafs just handed pucks on dumb turnovers.  Was sad to see.

I don't think Perry has the physical capacity to play 15 minutes and the players they brought to score will disappear like they have.  But we'll see.

And that’s what it all comes down to, and why it’s fun when you don’t have any actual skin in the game: you have to wait and see because nobody knows for sure! Few - if any - of the pundits picked all 4 teams still in it to be in the semis. 
That said… Just looking at the roster, and Vegas IS big - I’ll give you that! 🙂

I want Vegas to be nothing other than that. It's what that city is.

Same way that I wouldn't want to see Montreal fans changing either. Actually I miss seeing everyone in the stands in suits and nice clothes.

I guess that’s the rub; how do you reconcile a non-traditional hockey city’s (corporatized, though that may be a redundant qualifier in Vegas’ case) expression of its identity with the conventions of hockey spectatorship? I know the response is probably “you don’t”, but I am old(ish) and grumpy about things like this. I fondly remember going to games at the old Forum, where almost everyone was there - shockingly - to actually watch every second of the game. The “big screen” had graphics that made the original NES look like 3D. And no replays anywhere - so if you missed it live, you missed it completely. And between whistles and tv time outs? Organ music. That’s it. 
The bottom line here IS the bottom line; all pro sports are businesses. I get that. Coming from a market where what is being sold is actually just straight up hockey, its a sad spectacle to see Vegas adding so many other things to the show in order to sell a game that in my experience sells itself.

I have to ask, did you actually expect Vegas to tone down the theatrics?

I'm shocked there aren't go-go girls dancing in cages suspended over the ice surface.
