Tyler Toffoli is one of those prospects who performed well in junior but many questioned if he would be as dominant in the NHL. Personally I was behind the kid from the get-go and still think he could be something special. Players like Ryan Johansen prove if you take the raw talent and develop it slowly, protect it etc it could be better in the long run. Tyler has been shielded quite significantly but this post-season he is beginning to shine and I am very happy to see that happen. A month ago a seller had a nice Select parallel rookie with a Prizm insert and a very nice price attached. I sent a BO of about half of what he was asking not because I am shrewd or felt he was unfair but because I am trying to get the most of my money. He responded with an amazing counter, an explanation of book values (which I already knew) and an offer to throw in a third card. I wrote back thanking him and said SOLD!

The Kings are playing very well this post-season and if they win the Cup, I win the "House of Oglethorpe" contest which is pretty sweet. The Kings lose, then the Hawks will win the Cup and they are my number 2 team so its all good there too. The way I see it, I can't lose.
BTW I do know if an Eastern Conference team wins the Cup it screws my logic up but seriously, will the Eastern Conference win it?
