    Poz'd this more than 2 months late, but yeah.
    2017 playoffs were the most frustrating experience. Every round, all the teams I wanted to win lost. But there were still enough engaging storylines and teams that I wanted to see lose that I kept tuning in. And then none of those storylines played out and the more hated team always won. The worst of all worlds.

    So the 2017 -18 Hawks look like total garbage! I guess it's sort of cool that we got Saad back.

    Yep, and it is pretty cool. Oddly enough, I think I’ve been genetically preconditioned to be one of those “pro racism” people - i.e. sorta dig the classic logo. My dad’s side of the family were a bunch of hockey die hard North Dakotans, who also happened to be a good percentage Blackfeet Indian. And they love the old logo. As I think about it now, the love probably had a lot more to do with being whiteboy hockey kids from the north than it had to do with being 1/4 (1/8?) Native American. But their love for the logo still stuck with me.
    Also, I don’t think the Blackhawk logo is overtly or negatively cartoony (like the old Cleveland Indians logo) and Blackhawks being the name of a tribe is better than if the team name were an actual ethnic slur (“Redskins”). So, of all the offensive and probably racist sports things out there, this was always one I didn’t really get angry about. Also, because “history!” I guess.

    Haha. Yeah, so long as we keep on this pace, we’re golden!!
    I was going a bit overboard with “total garbage,” but still not fully sold.

    Only way I’ll watch the finals is if it’s Golden Knights vs the Devils.

    Shouldn't have backed down from that prediction, it was on point. We were lost the moment Crawford went down.
    Go... I don't know, bruins I guess? Who cares.

    Do they do this opening before every game?

    Watching this with the sound off, it’s nuts

    Ovechkin! Good for him. It’s cool seeing how happy his teammates are for him.

    They announced this in a very somber tone on Q101 as I was driving home.

    It was immediately followed with "Low" by Cracker
