She kind of reminds me of Prosser's Stifler's mom, just not quite as busty (and different hair color of course).

But Stifler's mom wouldn't ask you to increase the number of red cells in her body..(only the white ones ().., or ask you to put a needle in her buttcheek.. or shave her face..

That really isn't the general consensus over in Calgary.

Yeah, saw that. It's silly that they have Toronto in front of...well, anyone. Jets also somehow got worse despite signing Olli and Poni, unless it's because they haven't officially signed Kane yet.

Quite optimistic imo. Hard to see what makes Minnesota so much likelier than for example Phoenix (unless they lose Doan)? But then again, I think they've got a better chance than Blues, but that's just me. Also ranking Anaheim so low is just a crime.

It's funny how you can see some of the teams having such bad odds just because they're fan favorites. Toronto and Detroit probably most obviously. If I'd make a quick list, it'd probably look something like this:

Penguins
Rangers
Kings
Canucks
Bruins
Flyers
Tampa Bay
Chicago
Anaheim
Phoenix
Minnesota
Carolina
Panthers
Washington
Colorado
Dallas
San Jose
Buffalo
Ottawa
Montreal
Islanders
Nashville
Toronto
Jets
Devils
Oilers
Calgary
Columbus

But that's just me

The middle of the pack is the hardest to predict, the top 6 is pretty clear and so is the bottom 3. I think the Wild belong right now somewhere in the upper middle. One very good defenseman does not a Stanley Cup defense make.

These are odds so Las Vegas makes money, not official "these are what we logically think through careful rationalization" odds. Have a lot more members of Leafs Nation who will put money down on Toronto than small-market Winnipeg.

Exactly...These odds just reflect where the money is going. It's not a bunch of guys sitting in a room picking favorites.

Just put the same amount of money on the top 12 teams odds-wise and there's a good chance you'll get a little payday out of it.

Are we talking bars or dress up nice restaurants? If it's the former The Happy Gnome and The Blue Door are always good stops for a burger and a beer.

keep in mind it doesn't necessarily have to be in St. Paul as the trip isn't centered around going to the X. But yeah BDP is my favorite burger. i'm one of the people holding up shirts on their website. one of hundreds.
