Nhl playoffs :::::::::!


#1

So, since I’m sure I’ll only get interest from one other person here …

Whaddya think happens, @WinnipegFan?

SJ vs. VGK looks like an excellent first round as far as entertainment value. As for me, I’m certainly hoping Vegas can get healthy, especially with Fleury.

Edit: Sorry for the title, I had to get around a glitch about the character minimums.

PS Bring Back Al MacInnis


#2

First round exit for my Jets at this point. The spark from last year is gone.

I think this is the year the president’s trophy curse is broken. TB looks like a Juggernaut. Vegas looks like a wildcard again, I underestimated them last year, but I’m still not sure what they’ll do this year.

The Blues scare me, when Binnington is on they look amazing.


#3

I worry about my beloved Maple Leafs. Boston is likely going to kick the snot out of them.

I hate this playoff format BUT you should build a team that can compete with anyone…the Leafs have some big names and great players…but dare I say that maybe Babcock is becoming an issue?


#4

Jets are fucking garbage. Ugh.


#5

Get it out of your system now. Maybe they’ll tune it up before the playoffs.


#6

In Toronto, unless you win every game, it seems like everything becomes an issue.

That said, i really think this one is something worth looking into.

It certainly is terrible timing for a distraction.


#7

Anyone willing to throw down some first round predictions?

DAL/NASH: Predators in 6

WIN/STL: Jets in 7

CAL/COL: Flames in 5

VEG/SJ: Golden Knights in 6

TB/COL: Lightning in 5

BOS/TOR: Bruins in 6

WASH/CAR: Caps in 4

NYI/PITT: This might be the hardest for me to figure out. Pens in 5?


#8

Wow, Tampa collapsed.


#9

Not just Tampa…I am impressed by the way The NYI are playing…and Columbus. Both are employing a wicked forecheck and they are all backchecking. Both TB and Pit look like they don’t care.

Come on Leafs…don’t F with my emotions and blow this one…again…


#10

Tampa Bay especially looked like this was NBD.

What a shame, considering how incredible that team was. Theyll more than likely have to dismantle a lot of it, and one has to wonder if Cooper is let go.

All in all, a bad time to have lost Yzerman, and what’s even better is Nikita Gusev is a Golden Knight, and actually came to the U.S.

Oops.


#11

It just shows the regular season is meaningless and all you need to do is just get in. What happens from there shows what your team is. Or you have a goalie that played out of his mind.
