This isn't really as much of a blog as it is just me making a statement. But I just needed to get it out there. It cannot be understated just how fucked up the Vegas Golden Knights were to make it to a Stanley Cup Final in the first year of existence. Some hockey fans have been waiting their entire lifetime waiting for that experience. Others go 10+ years before ever experiencing it again. Being a fan is all about extended, agonizing pain for long periods of time. It's not about instant gratification. It's not about just showing up to play one day and the next you're in the Cup Final. Earn it.
So if the Kraken come in and have that same level of immediate success? I'm going to go to Shea Weber's house, I'm going to knock on his door, I'm going to ask him to go to the nearest rink with me with a bag full of pucks and then I'm going to stand in the net without a helmet one while he just tees off from the point. Dome shots only, Shea.
The good news is that the Flyers are going to advance to the Stanley Cup Final later this summer so this will all be irrelevant by September. But I still just needed to get it out there. Plus, I'm already sick of the "release the Kraken" saying so I'm excited to firmly start my new life as a hater of the Kraken. Dope name, dope logo, dope sweaters, but I wish them nothing but the worst.
