Controversial decision? Because for the first time in a ages the league has decided to pick somewhere outside the usual suspects (2011 was a last time the WC featured two non-Original Six teams)? Screw the haters, the Cotton Bowl is a great location plus at least it won’t be in Jerry’s stadium the middle of nowhere (aka Arlington). Interested to see who they pick at our opponent, division rival like the Preds would be a pretty good choice but they may hold off until Nashville can host a game.
Nobody expected the Flames to be anywhere this good, even with the new coach. Pity they will probably end up facing the Ducks in the first round and shit the bed as usual.
The Jets still look strong plus the Leafs are rolling which is starting to give the rest of Canada heartburn thinking about the waves of fans that will come out of the woodwork when the playoffs start. Also good to see Carolina and Buffalo get their shit together after some pretty lean periods.
