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

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

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.

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?

Jets are fucking garbage. Ugh.

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

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.

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?

Wow, Tampa collapsed.

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…

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.


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.

Who’s your Cup fave, @goldenlions?

At the start it was Tampa for me, but after what has happened so far, I like what I am seeing out of the Islanders.
Out west is kind of a cluster, I think that is pretty much anyones to take, but I think Vegas could make it out again.

Welp, my picks before the season started are both out.

I had Winnipeg vs. Tampa Bay back then.

What’s funny is I figured Toronto would win the President’s Trophy, then lose in the first round.

Yeah, I’m incredibly nervous for Game 6 tomorrow!

Well did not see that coming…

That game misconduct was an absolute bullshit call.

And yeah, i get the PK let them down, but JESUS CHRIST.

I felt for you guys, that is a tough one to swallow. The game misconduct call wasn’t deserved in my opinion, a penalty yes, but i dont think it was malicious or an attempt to injure.

They punished the results instead of the cross check. Obviously the results were really bad, but I thought there had to be an intent to injure or recklessness for a game misconduct call.
