Some stupid GM is going to overpay Bickell.

Don't do it Gillis. No one is a 25% shooter.

And Bickell has tied our 2nd line "offensive force" Mason Raymond for his career playoff goals in one unfinshed playoff run.

I'm sure he'll end up somewhere else and never match this production, but a young forward with size who can put up goals in the playoffs is worth the risk for a lot of teams IMO.

Sometimes guys develop late, and I would rather have the guy with room to grow than someone on the other way down on the slope like Clowe.

I could actually see Bickell being a nice pick-up for whoever signs him, but not at the $3.5m per or more he's probably going to get. He's worth like...half of that.

Anyone who still thinks Keith stick to Carter's face was accidental should check out his history of deliberate headshots. He goes after heads and faces on purpose when angry. I'm amazed he still gets treated as clean player by the league.

Retaliatory stick to the face vs STL

Good

Looks like their repeat will be stopped cold in its tracks. That 'Will the Kings repeat' thread on the main boards is going to be bumped soon.

Brown with 4 pts in 17 games this playoffs, pointless in this series. Nice performance from a supposed "playoff performer" who plays with "heart"

I wonder when we can expect Cherry`s montage of Bruin flopping and faking. He likes to provide Canada with reasons why everyone hates the Canucks - clips of Kesler, Burrows, etc. Will he replay the clip of Chara falling like he had just taken a bullet in the OT last night in front of his net? The Lucic fall in the corner?

I never thought I'd say this, but I'll be pulling for the Blackhawks in the Finals. I hate the Bruins. I hate almost every one of their players and there hypocritical ugly ass coach.

1 more point than the Sedins' in 13 more games Kopitar is obviously injured such a shame watching such a great player look so ordinary. When he's on he's one of the best players in hockey.

I've been watching the videos of all the past games from that post-season. Seriously, what happened to that team? What happened in 2012 was understandable, but 2013 was a bigger shock to me.

I think the window closed. I know, I know they've had great regular season success and what not but since the regular season game in Boston the team has not looked the same, they went from having the best power play in the league scoring 4 times that game to becoming a bottom 10 team on the power play. Since the January game in Boston despite what there record suggested the team was playing bad hockey and has relied to much on goaltending. Both Schneider and Luongo were the reason we won the President's trophy in 2012. Maybe with a new system this team can figure it out but until then I firmly believe this teams core has a very slim chance on winning.
