Tuesday's Dump & Chase: Bummer

Bruce Bennett

Bummer that the Hawks won. Bummer that there's not going to be a Game 7. Bummer that hockey is over for the year. It was an exciting finish though. The Bruins just couldn't hold late leads in Games 1 and 6, and it finally did them in. Whenever the Blackhawks needed a quick goal (or two), they were able to get it. I guess we can call this a victory for deep, dynamic offense over "sandpaper". If we're comparing styles. Congrats to the Blackhawks...they were the best team, start to finish. ( I know what you're thinking..."With a potential worldwide audience of 7 billion, there's no reason for me to vote for OTF in the Toast of Music City Reader's Choice Awards, someone else will do it." But there's a good chance most of those people are thinking the same thing about you. So go vote today. Every vote is important.)

Another good fit, but I just can't see the Preds spending a ton of money in free agency. The amount they're under the cap is suspiciously close to the bonus amount being paid to Shea Weber.
