    with all respect Navy, “southern hockey” is an oxymoron

    Sergachev deleted a tweet citing death threats made towards Yanni Gourde's family from Montreal fans, I think that is what led to comments.

    Here’s the full Kooch presser. My favorite part is at about 4:40 when he chugs the remainder of his Bud Lite, slides the empty can down the table and cracks open another. I think he’s got a bit of John Blutarsky in him.

    fwiw: The championship celebration boat parade is Monday, should be something with the hockey boyz drinking and on the water. Hopefully Lord Stanley doesn’t go for a swim.

    The fun loving mayor has decreed that NO PRIVATE BOATS are allowed in her parade and no viewers are allowed on ANY bridges. This will be far less of a parade than any of the previous ones. At least she and her cronies will have a better view.

    The rationale or guise is supposedly safety.

    Apparently none of the hundreds of private boats in the boat parade today got that memo, if there was one. An outstanding turnout on a Monday!

    (I loved all the t-shirts that read "Cup. Boat Parade. Repeat." Also, Stamkos was wearing a shirt that read "Back to Boat".)

    What the hell is the matter with that woman. You’d think she’d have learned her lesson after sticking her foot in her mouth over Game 4

    The city did state on their social media over the weekend that private boats were not allowed in the parade. This morning, this was clarified that private boats were not allowed to be IN the parade and had to stay out of the parade, itself. It did look like this was GENERALLY what happened.

    It was a great turnout, of course. There were a lot of boats going down the river as early as 7 this morning.
