Friday's Dump & Chase: Could This Be The Year A Canadian Team Finally Wins The Cup?

And by "a Canadian team", I mean the only Canadian team, the Canadiens. They're off to a good start, right? Last night's win (Double-Overtime Thriller!) was a bit of a surprise to me...I thought for sure they'd be a bit rusty after closing out Tampa so quickly. Boston is still the better team, and they lost Game 1 to Detroit in the last round,'d that turn out for the Red Wings? But still, Montreal fans have to be pretty happy with the start...and while it's been, what, like four decades since a team from Canada won the cup, this franchise was the one that did it. So it's theoretically possible.

Dear Jones Family...if Seth needs help gaining weight during the offseason, I have a fantastic plan that works wonders for me, and I'm sure it would be great for him too. Put me to work, guys...Seth will be 230-240 by June 1st, guaranteed. (Full Disclosure: Most of the weight he gains under this plan could be described as fat)
