Open Thread: Stanley's Cup Final

June 3, 2023

Finally. Finally to the Finals.

Not that we care. This has been a tough Nucking season for us. And to dig the salted wound a bit deeper, one of these teams will be a first time Cup winner. We know what that feels like.

No. No, we don't. And that's what makes this past decade of Nucking futility so frustrating. In case you missed the past 12 years.

Anyhow, we're not here to wine about our terrible, micro-managing owner, his terrible choices for GM, great choice for Prez, his GM's terrible 8 year exercise in futile roster building, his terrible decision to fire his Prez and keep the incompetent GM in place - for years. And now retreading the rebuil-tool belt with another team of highly paid professional managers from the east - who hadn't watched a Nucks game until last year.

No, we're not going to mention any of those things.

Instead we're going to sit back and watch these southern hockey power houses knock the stuffing out of each other, while the HNIC broadcast team wet themselves with their clever cliché insights into Gary's game.

VEGAS is your 2023 Stanley Cup Champs!

Congrats to the Canadian boys - more Canucks, (18), on the team than any other in the SCP.

Also... a shoutout to former Canucklehead, Ben Hutton, who played against the Jets and now has a Cup ring...

Now we can switch our tainted focus on the Draft. And how JR and Alvin and the Chipmunks make the team better. On paper. To be fair, the summer is the best time to sport our latest Nucking false hope fashions. Strut that Nucking delusion like it's hot!


Comment System How-To

New NM, new comment system. Still uses words and stuff. Hover over the icons to see what they do. 

The most vital function is image embedding. Paste the link to the image in the comment box. When the comment is posted, the image appears. Most of  the time. 

NOTE: Remove the non-image name jibberish. If the image link has any stuff after the file extension - usually a ? with directives like: woo.gif?size=480 blah blah - delete up to and including the ? - simples.

GIF it up for Westy! Or still life in rum.
NOTE: Comments refresh every 30 seconds. Not fast enough for most of our lightening round contestants. We are working to increase the refresh speed. Just... not working too hard... because NM labour guidelines. Thanks for being patient!
