Alim making fun of the Caps choking in the second is funny too since last year was the first time since 94 I believe that the Nux made it past the second round. Just like that year they lost in the finals in game 7. LOLCANUCKS.
Last year was the first, maybe second time in franchise history where they were a Cup favorite. They were always projected to be a bubble/bottom 10 team ever since the mid 90s except for a year or two in the mid 00s.
The first was in 2003 where we had Naslund and Bertuzzi in their primes and we choked against the Wild, no denying that.
We won the Presidents Trophy last year and were the clear favorite and made it to the end and came a game short.
Losing to the Habs in the first round in the same season where they won the President's Trophy and getting swept by the Lightning in the second round the year after is choking.
Making it to game 7 of the finals and losing, not so much.

Re: NHL thread. 2011-12 season.
Wild thus far haven't looked like a complete shithouse this year other than being obviously outclassed by Detroit the other night but it could have been much worse. Most of that was because the Wild's top line being completely shutdown in that game.
I'm feeling optimistic about them this year. Which means they'll probably be one spot out of the playoffs this time around.
