This is possibly the funniest thing I've ever read on here.

I'd add another severely misunderstood HF "truth" but I think you covered practically everything Bolts fans.

Well done

Been watching the bolts for a while now. I've never seen them play this well, even in the run two years ago. I don't wanna jinx it but it feels different this year.

I find it funny people say the defense isn't good enough. The defense is a lot better than it was last year yet most of you thought the Bolts were cup contenders.

Just because they missed it last year means they will this season.

Hell no. St. Louis is too old and slowing down already. Without him Stamkos is nothing. They better buy out that terrible contract of Lecavalier, trade Malone, Purcell and Hedman and start rebuilding.

Their ownership is a joke, too. The team is broke. Canadian fans are paying through their noses just to keep hockey in Tampa. **** you, Gary Bettman.

You were right last year, but you're way off this year.

Tampa Bay for Real this year? Who is Real? Is he the next #1 Draft pick we're gonna get when we implode and end up in dead last?

Can someone give me Real's junior stats? aww forget it, I wouldn't understand them anyways...

C'mon Tampa, lose, deal and steal for Real

We should trade Conacher now that he has some value

Yes! Conacher + 1st round pick to Wild for Zenon Konopka. Then we'd have a chance of winning instead of just getting pushed around.

Did you hear that Tampa has become such an unpopular destination for players that Yzerman is having to resort to hiring semi-pro's? That last roster spot out of training camp went to a guy who is actually a pelican hunter.

Lindback has been playing well in net, and the new additions on D look really good.

I think they're a pretty legit team with a chance to make a deep push in the playoffs again.

Sens fans had to go through that from 2005-08 with Spezza, Alfredsson and Heatley.
