I feel for the Preds...as a Sabres fan who still feels that they got robbed in the '99 Stanley Cup for what should have been a "no goal". Funny how the rule book changed the very next season.

Still pissed about that one....and yes, Brett Hull is still a d#ck. :x

I still can't believe an expansion team was this good in their first year.

As a Tampa native I'm kinda freaking out about tonight's game - three to three, final game before the Cup. Stamkos better be bringing the thunder or else. :lol:

I can. NHL changed the rules since last expansion and teams could only protect 8 players. Gave a HUGE advantage to the Knights to build the team they wanted because teams either had to leave high priced veterans out there (like Marc Andre-Fleury) and/or make side deals with them to ensure they didn't draft players teams had to leave unprotected. They were also free from the salary cap constraints that hit previous dynasties who had to pay to keep their stars on the team.

From that, they were able to build a team of 4 solid lines that can just keep coming at you with lots of speed.

I'm torn who to root for here. On one hand, I like the upstart-team-going-all-the-way story, but I feel like the fans need to earn it a bit more first, especially after learning how the relaxed rules allow for a new team to essentially hit the ground running. Caps fans, though I'm certainly not fond of them, have suffered plenty and deserve to have their loyalty rewarded, especially after coming close year after year.
