I don't know what to feel. I think the Knights win, but I think the Caps have so much confidence and everything going right for them it seems like this is their year.

That being said, it would be delicious if MAF let the entire world down one more time. But I think MAF wills the entire team to win so we can have more summertime hindsight 20/20 talk.
MAF winning the Cup with Vegas will provide a bounty of summertime conversation topics for the local Pittsburgh radio hosts and yinzer callers. Just imagine how many times you are going to hear "Keeping Murray was a mistake" and "We could have won the Cup if we had kept Fleury" over and over again. If they don't win, you'd probably hear the same thing anyway.
Yeah we're already hearing it and have been hearing it for a while.
It's been happening since Murray's first terrible game this year lol.

Neal will be hungry since he lost last year, Schmidt will be hungry to prove the Caps they let the wrong guy go, and the list goes on...

How absolutely unbearable will the Caps fans be for the whole next year if they win?
they'll have one cup. many teams have more than that. they're still a middle/low class franchise. if they want to pretend that this lucky stretch somehow changes history, whatever. can't argue with crazy.

Should we meet on the steps when the Golden Knights win the Cup? Or is that too on the nose?

My dream is Vegas sweeps the Caps, and Fleury skates around on Caps home ice with the Cup.
Dream scenario: VGK wins Cup. Since they don't have a captain, Bettman presents Cup to Fluery (along with his Conn Smythe). MAF graciously accepts, skates a bit, hand it off to Neal. Who hands it off to Engelland. Who hands it off to Perron. I think that would be a hoot, especially on Caps' home ice.

Wouldn't the Cup be presented to one or all of the alt captains?

Contemplating this today...what if a Lightning player or two completely ignored Wilson in the handshake line last night or even better, had shoved him or cursed him out? What would the league do about that?

actually, did you see how long it took Wilson to get to the handshake line? I didn't see anyone calling him out today.....

Lucic told a guy he’d f***ing kill him in a handshake line once. This isn’t really hypothetical. Nothing significant came of it.

And god damn, coburn...good job not getting murdered too badly, but Wilson is a guy who wouldn’t fight Oleksiak after a scumbag hit. You don’t have to fight Wilson because you threw a jersey. You got some stick taps, but the caps gain more than anyone with the circus act.

The lightning have some soul searching to do, I think.

Handshake gate was still orpik’s fault more than anyone. He had no interest in celebrating with his team. He started that line almost immediately and forced everyone to follow.

He has to be one of the least likeable guys in the league in a very specific way.
