I'm not very thrilled with Oilers/Blackhawks match-up, mainly due to the fact that the loser gets to have that 12.5% chance to get #1 in the draft and these are the top two teams I don't want them to get #1 in the draft.

Honestly.....if not for Binnington that game should have been 6 or 7 to 1. Blues have looked like ass these first two games back. This round robin stuff is what it is....I'm not a fan of how the entire tourney has been laid out but at least it's hockey. I'm trying to help mentally grasp that the fantastic season the Blues had going defending the Cup is gone and now this is just a tournament where everyone is at square one. Right now they look like they are having the Stanley Cup hangover they never had.

I missed the game, and honestly, these round robin games don't mean much to me. The seeding doesn't seem like it'll be a big deal. I hope.

But the B's don't seem like they're ready.

The "preseason" game and this game they were flat footed.  I'm not impressed.

Same with the Blues Joe. The only good thing is that Binnington has looked really sharp.

Is it possible they only looked that way because of the amazing opponent they were playing? :biggrin:

The Rangers will get swept. Hank is struggling, Igor is day to day, and Georgiev is clearly not trusted by the coaching staff. Meanwhile the skaters are slow to the puck, offering no help to Lundqvist and leaving him out to dry. This is a team on the rise, but they clearly aren’t ready yet.

So the Oilers are doing a digital 50/50  draw for their games. Open to any resident of Alberta from 9am on gameday until 2nd intermission. By puck drop tonight it was at $2M dollars. That's fucking ridiculous

The Rangers played much better last night, but unfortunately it wasn't enough as Carolina's goalie stood on his head as the rest of the team wore the Rangers out. Still, it was nice to see Rangers playoff hockey again, even if it was a cameo. Next up, the draft and a shot at the first overall pick. And of course I'll still be watching the rest of the playoff field, praying that my prediction of a Flyers championship doesn't come true.

Hey, the good news is they have a 12.5% chance at Lafreniere now.  That was the first playoff start for James Reimer since Toronto/Boston in 2013.

Sure wish he could've stood on his head THAT game.   :lol

Would love to see that, simply because it means one of them has to be eliminated right off the bat.

But would be even better (though I find it highly unlikely) is seeing the Habs been the Bs in the first round. :D

Under normal circumstances, I wouldn't fear the Pens. The B's have matched up pretty favorably with them over the last few years. But they need to get their shit together..quick.

What a fucking choke job to get man-handled the way they did in the 3rd period when the game should have been comfortably in hand.  Not once did CBJ come back from being down 3-0 all season; not once did they recover from a 2-goal/3rd period deficit.  Leave it to the Leafs to be the first for them to do that with. 

Classic example of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

I'm not gonna go back and quote myself, but back in February, I was floating the idea around that the embarrassment of missing the playoffs might be the best thing for this team.  Unfortunately, Dubas put his 50% of his chips on 4 numbers, and the ball ain't dropping for him.  Now he has no money to build a team around these four, and there's no way to move any of them.

I really hope the Leafs doesn't get #1 in the draft if this is how the team is being built.

Watch... it'll be either Edmonton, or Pitt.  A top 10 regular season team will get the #1 pick.  And if it's the former, that'll be their 4th #1 in the last 11 years.

Though, jingle.son predicts it's Edmonton.

Blues hadn’t lost a game all year (25-0-6) when leading after two periods. Have lost both the round robin games leading after two.

The only player that looks like he made the trip to Edmonton is Binnington. He’s looked really good.....good enough to not be worried about goaltending. What’s concerning is the rest of the team looks like a$$. Just a mess. The ‘pause’ may have hit them the hardest out of any team and it pisses me off to no end but what can you do?

On the bright side, the Blues could end up with Chicago in the first round. That's a pretty favorable match up
