Yeah, George "Forsberg for Martin Erat" McPhee made some smart minor moves, but overall got really lucky. Literally every one of his "major" moves for Vegas has fizzled out.

Tatar for a first, second and third at the deadline, only to become a healthy scratch. Worse than even the critics of that trade could have imagined.

Their big KHL signing was a total bust.

I guess with as many trades and signings as they've made in the past year, they were destined to have some stinkers mixed in.

I'm rooting for both Washington and Vegas. I'll be happy for whichever team wins and sad for the loser. Mostly I'm hoping for good games and a long series.

How horrifying will it be to see Cody Eakin's name on the cup?

Or Matt Niskanen's?

Yeah, but that's outweighed by Ovechkin getting the cup. And, Niskanen has changed from the disaster he was in Dallas. That's because he went to teams that actually know how to develop defensemen.

Alex Chiasson will soon have more cup rings than Jamie Benn.

Love the bonus episode of Game of Thrones NBC is airing before the game.

As much as I want Ovi to win the Cup, I'm rooting for Vegas. Though I won't mind if Caps win either.

Vegas is swarming. Wonder if they can keep it up.

Well, things changed quickly. Two fairly lucky goals, and all of the possession by Vegas looks to be for nothing.

Roussel-esque hit by Wilson. What a moron.

And the refs let Engelland play like it’s 1999.

Welp, definitely wasn't the goalie battle everyone thought it would be LOL.

Fantastically entertaining hockey.

I specifically remember making fun of the Tomas Nosek pick in the expansion draft.

NBCSN is really laying it on thick with the stories about how every Vegas player was pulled off the scrapheap. They're trying to make it sound like this is a roster of losers and misfits from a movie like Major League. What bullshit. Pretty much every player was a solid NHLer who was going to have a nice long NHL career regardless of what happened in the expansion draft.

Two very fun games to start the series.

Definitely. If Kuznetzov’s wrist is broken though, that’s a huge loss for the Caps.

This has been my point all along. This is what aggravates me about the story. I'm not annoyed that they are a good team who got to the finals. I'm annoyed that the media treats them like they are the 1991 San Jose Sharks getting to the finals. It's not even remotely true.

I definitely think that the VGK players deserve to win, but their fans certainly don't.
One season and you get a cup? FOH
