Hockey is violent grace, or sometimes just silly.

Kings and Sharks Dance Offs started when both teams first met in the playoffs. It took over the series talk thread and Game Day Threads until it got it's own thread. Since then, it has become a tradition.

Shouldn't it be the Sharks and the Jets?

Sometimes people say the same thing so much on the internets that it becomes meaningless. I'm happy to contribute to that.

The mark of a local rivalry in hockey is supposed to be unbridled contempt. This is what we get for letting Californians play hockey. We see you wearing shorts to the rink. We see your awesome dance-off and look down on you with envy disdain.

The playoff photoshop threads over there can be lots of fun, too.

There's a lot of inside...puck... involved, but if you're following the playoffs, you'll get most of 'em.

Oh yeah. Nice win by the Kings tonight.

Raffi Torres' next dance partner may be Brendan Shanahan of the League's Office of Player Safety.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Dude is the preferred usage there.

Also, Quick was an animal tonight.

My girlfriend has a theory that white people, secure in the knowledge that no amount of looking stupid can threaten their social standing, dance like they have zero fucks available to give. My enthusiastic but completely inept dancing has done little to dissuade her from this opinion, and if she someone finds this thread there will be absolutely no living with her.

Nope, it's "man."

Yep, I'm a Kings fan again. (I.e. the Ducks have been eliminated)

In 20 years the Kings and Ducks have never met in the playoffs, rarely even both making the playoffs in the same year. (By contrast the Ducks have faced the Red Wings about a dozen times)

When that finally happens, I expect great things. This is fun.

There's no crying dancing in baseball hockey!

There certainly is dancing in hockey.

Okay, this is pretty silly.

Hockey is certainly a sport of excellent gifs

I'm sad that the shortened season did not lead to the Sharks/Jets home game that I was promised. With the pending divisional realignment, Sharks/Jets in SJ may be a long way off.
