Hank's a beast. I can't believe people were trying to talk Holtby up like he was on Lundqvist's level.

JVR isn't lighting the world on fire this playoffs neither so I don't get that comment.

You don't have to light the world on fire to outperform nash in the playoffs. He has 1 assist in 6 games this year.

Where's Callahan and Stepan been then? Outside of Hank and Brassard everybody else has been horrible or average at best. It's hard to single out just Nash for their short comings.

The reffing that game was terrible

I don't know how you can keep calling penalties on the Caps for mostly borderline stuff, and then not call the rags for anything at all

It isn't. Stephan and callahan are nice players but they are not on the level of nash in terms of skill or pedigree. A 1st overall pick, olympic team member should be held in a much higher regard.

Stepan is really good

Callahan is a glorified 3rd liner that dives and embellishes more than Letang

Come on man, he scored 16 goals and had 31 points this year. I don't see many 3rd liners doing that. I know you hate the Rangers but that's just a ridiculous statement.

That would be like Rangers fans calling Simmonds a glorified 3rd liner.

Jagr has been useless the entire playoffs

I can't believe some of you want him to come back next season

The guy is a legend, but no. Keep him away from this team

He wasn't that great for us in the playoffs last year neither. It's a nostalgia type thing.

I like Jagr but he seems to wear down very easily in second half of the year. I think Jake has filled the void left by Jagr on the 1st line pretty well.

Wow 2-0 Leafs. Hard to believe Boston led the series 3-1.

Glorified 3rd liners do well in this city. I'd do anything to have him here, popping 50 points, killing PKs, and landing 300 hits a year.

I really wish I'd watched the Ducks vs. Red Wings series from the get-go now.

Happy that John Forslund is getting national games. I find him better than Emrick.

Emerick is an overrated hack with a screechy voice and horrible phrases. It's a shame Gary Thorne doesn't call NHL games anymore.

I honestly can't wait until he retires. Him and Pierre can be too much on most nights.

Teemu can still skate like a 20 year old. He continues to amaze me.

On a team coached by a dead puck relic who doesn't promote offense.
