Ya, professional hockey seems to have one of the most competitive post seasons top to bottom.
Definitely. There are plenty of “underdogs” who go on runs. LA several years ago was an 8 when they won, albeit not the “worst” team.
Pulling for Montreal and Weber, even if it means IP is the only guy on this board that gets to be truly happy this year
Hockey has such a high random shit happening factor too. I can tell you from watching my guys go all the way, winning the cup is a miracle. Only reason anybody wins it is because somebody has to. You can weight your dice for sure but at the end of the day it’s a roll of the dice.
Going from down 3-1 in the first round to the Stanley Cup Finals is a pretty impressive feat.
down 3-1 again in the finals. what a ride.
Does anyone ever really come back from three shoulder surgeries?
Some guy who’s had four, probably.
I hate to see it but it’s probably time
It’s a sad day, but man I’m so glad he got to go out with a shutout in front of a big crowd. Dude absolutely WAS the Predators for 75% of their existence, and by all accounts is a genuinely great human being.
Love Pekka. I remember him being the “next big thing” behind Vokoun, and he lived up to the billing. Wish he’d have had better support in the playoffs from the O, or just in general from shitty Nashville offenses, but it is what it is.
On a side note, kinda surprised to see the Jarnkork selection from Kraken. Figured it would have been Duchene or Johansen
I wouldn’t have taken those contracts if I were them either, tbh.
But judging by the selections, they wanted a bunch of strong two way players on cheapish deals. Jarnkrok certainly fits that mold
God, now that I’ve had time to compute and learned that Seattle made zero trades, that is an absolutely awful expansion draft.
What is Carolina doing? Alex Nedeljkovic for a third round pick and Bernier? Kudos to Yzerman.
Yeah, seems bad. I get not taking on several of the big contracts, but feels like you can afford to take a chance on one or two? Or try to amass a lot of draft/prospect capital and use your cap space for salary dumps. Or get some kind of assets in return for handshake agreements, etc.
I wonder if their finances are dented from the lockdown? But every other team was missing gates.
