Tampa

The usual early dirt nap for the team that wasted so much energy grabbing the President’s Trophy?

Seems like the obvious choice, but anything can happen.  Wouldn’t mind seeing the Sharks win, but have to be realistic.

I think the Jets win it all.

 

I’m a Bruins fan but I don’t see them beating Toronto and then Tampa. 

 

First round upset, Carolina over Washington.

Not up on the west so I just picked  2 

First round 

 

otherwise ALL CAPS 🧢 

 

 

 

 

The winningest record doesn’t guarantee anything. Ask the Caps 2 and 3 years ago.

The NHL playoff format is the worst in sports. 

 

That said, we need the Sharks and Blues to make first round exits.

 

My upset special is the Hurricanes in the East.

The Top Point Getter rarely wins it all, unless it was a no-brainer part of a dynasty 

 

tampa isn’t a dynasty

This year Tampa ran away early and cruised. They can easily be the exception to the rule.

Not sure why you say that.   They had close games but 

 

the Canes lost every game against the Caps this season if I’m not mistaken.

Love my Leafs but not betting a penny on them 

 

early memory of a playoff game and  it was like 10-0 Boston and Quinn hurt Orr and Forbes Kennedy fought every Bruin and decked the linesman as well (suspended for life for that)

 

and it hasn’t gotten better for my Leafs.

I looked at the history of the Prez Trophy winner also taking the SC and it’s dismal, the Gretzky Oilers and bitter rival Flames did it way way back, both were no-brainer champs, rare since then

 

 

Last ten years only Chicago took both, the strike shortened farce season

 

And all the parades and screaming about the most points achieved is dimly based on 3 points handed out for a tie game, this doesn’t compare to days when a tie was the final score

6 winners of both in almost 30 years

 

the playoffs are too long and too random to pick a favourite, again unless it was a no-brainer like the Oil or Flames in the late 80/

I have noted that trend myself.  Really, they should give the prez trophy winner an exra home game or something. It really is a feat to win the season points total.  This year, I think the talent level of the Bolts is way out of synch with their next closest rival.  And this group has a lot of playoff experience.  That said, I believe the NHL playoffs is the most open to success for lower seeds of all the majors.

The few games I watched TB play I was very impressed, they squeezed the life out of the Leafs all over the ice for easy wins.

 

i won’t be voluntarily watching a playoff games not involving the Leafs, so hopefully they can get into the second round with a good effort

I only watch playoff games that don’t involve my team.

I understand..... oh do I understand....

 

I will be forced to have to sit in a room with a game on a few times, hopefully take a needed nap during it

No particular reason. Just a hunch. 

 

I share your disdain for Boston, too. Goes way back to the Schoney/Cashman days.
