Will this finally be the year Leafs fans blow a gasket and league is forced to change the playoff rules from the crying?

The odds of Boston getting Stone are about the same as the Leafs beating the Bruins in the playoffs. low.

Is there any reason for any team in the east to buy at the deadline with Tampa being that dominant? Pittsburgh maybe.

Re: NHL Regular Season 2018-2019 - It's all about Stanley

It's the NHL and only 82 game season Trump Trophy winner to win since 02 is the 08 Wings. In fact the only one to make the SCF is Vancouver in 11.

I'll take the field against Tampa

edit: also weird you say Pitt who aren't good anymore and sit at 19th in CF and can't pull off a miracle to outperform it with elite finishing like Washington last year. (and why Wash isnt that good anymore either...)

Re: NHL Regular Season 2018-2019 - It's all about Stanley

Betting the field against Tampa is easy. I could bet the field against the last place finisher to win the lottery. Doesnt mean that every team on its own has a better chance. Or I ask: Would you want to see your team go allin this season?

I chose Pittsburgh because I think that Malkin and Crosby could always make a difference somehow.

Interesting to see DS doing his Jeckyll and Hyde impression in SE. Full blown STAT NERD in the PL thread, full blown fat bloke in pub itt.

Pens have run moderately bad, also Schultz back is massive he's a top pairing caliber dman. He will also boost malkins production a ton.

If you did a playoff fear power rankings pens are for sure top 5. And let's be honest they cake walk the cup last year if they weren't done in by the most egregious reffing performance in sporting history.

Re: NHL Regular Season 2018-2019 - It's all about Stanley

Pittsburgh doesnt have elite finishing? I kinda think they do.

They finished 16th in 5x5 CF a couple of years ago and won the cup.

For some reason HCMS plays JMFJ 3rd most out of the Pens D. Hopefully by the playoffs he's on the third pair or in the pressbox or god willing traded.

Should be more worries about the caps. Clearly the worst of all the metro teams in contention.

Re: NHL Regular Season 2018-2019 - It's all about Stanley

So the Oiler's are stuck with Milan Lucic's contract. My question is if they sent him to the minors assuming he cleared waivers. Would his contract still be part of the cap?

Asking this as they dumped Talbot to free up Cal room to bring up a player

Lets hope so. I have Pens, Caps, and Flyers to miss the playoffs at +200 or better.

Everything above ~$1M still counts toward the cap.
But he has a NMC, so might not be able to demote him anyway.
