    Are we even relevant anymore? That no cups since '75 thing has been tiring for years, but this is a franchise which hasn't won even a single playoff series since the last lockout.

    Tough sell against Team Marchand, but outside of Tarasenko and O'Reilly the Blues are basically a team of low skill third liners plus grinders who like to hit people after the whistle blows. Embracing the personality of their no-skill goon coach I guess.

    Yeah, those two guys are ok too. Been disappointed with Brayden Schenn as I expected him to be a decent second liner type of player. Instead he's a massive punk too.

    The lack of success keeps their identity as brutes alive. The best thing about them in forever is still the Legion of Doom, with Lindros being the perfect example of a player being unnecessarily physical.

    Marchand with a slew-foot to prove me wrong really put any idea of redemption to rest.

    Parayko used to be known for his big slapshot, but now it's all about dirty hits in front of the net. Pietrangelo has been amazing though.

    Six years in Philadelphia will do that to a player.

    Quite the bounce-back for Binnington. Absurd that he didn't get the Conn Smythe.

    Weird game, but a game 7 in the finals must do weird things to the minds of the players.
