    Vancouver will inevitably start a comeback with about 5 min left.

    Calling a timeout after a goal against on the road is so dumb. The crowds going to eat it up and keep feeding the home team.

    Bucci is really bad but I’m guessing he’s in a studio somewhere. impossible to do that job well remotely.

    I actually think EDM might be able to handle the Dallas forecheck better than anyone else has.

    I’m gonna say NYR-EDM

    Dude is a defenseman that has an 8x9.25M contract and wasn’t even top 5 in TOI on his own team in a game 7. Ken Holland being in the HoF is absolutely insane. He inherited a world class org, drove it into the ground, then went to Edmonton and can’t put together a winning team with two of the top 5 playoff performers of all time that he also inherited.

    If Edmonton is ever going to win a cup with McDavid, I think it almost has to be this year or next. One more season before Drai + Bouchard's contracts go up by a combined 10 million.

    What is happening here? Certainly seems like Stamkos is a goner.

    I don't get this move at all for Tampa. They need to be finding value, not spending 6.75 to bring back McDonagh and yeah, unless Stamkos is coming back for like 2m on a 1 year deal, he's gone.

    Wondering if Tampa has something else in the works. They're at 83 million right now and need to sign 2 more forwards just for a bare minimum 18 skaters. They don't even have enough to sign Stamkos if they cut his salary in half.

    Just straight saying they're moving on from him is the right move imo, but that's pretty cut throat and teams don't really do that with players like him.

    He's also still really fucking good. I don't understand the logic of paying McDonagh over Stamkos. You have to be right and they are planning on moving on from someone like Cirelli or Sergachev.

    I don’t care because im not one of those freaks that get mad about shit like that but I fail to see how Dom’s model has the Oilers as favs over the Stars. They could def win but the Stars have an advantage… everywhere. I could see it for the Rangers or Florida but not Edmonton

    If it were truly strictly analytical, I don’t even think it’s possible.

    To play devil's advocate, I think Edmonton's poor start, and as a result- unspectacular points percentage, has made the general public underrate Edmonton.

    They've been the best team in hockey by points percentage, goals for percentage, and expected goals for percentage since November.

    I think Dallas is a slight favorite but saying they have the advantage everywhere is crazy.
