Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

who does win the Conn Smythe though?

CHI - Toews or Kane?
ANA - Perry or Getzlaf?
NYR - Lundqvist
TBL - Johnson or Bishop?

I guess those lines are fairly accurate. Though with ~80 players still remaining in the playoffs, a 1/4 line on Lundq is pretty lol.

No reason to ban UHual. Guy is clearly nothing but a terrible bandwagon poster. Now that the Caps are out he won't post ever again.

Feel like Kane >>>> Towes and Perry >>>>> Getzlaf. Lundqvist should be a lock if NY wins, TBL would be a flip between those two. Probably Bishop being a slight fav

keep in mind that they often treat it more as a finals MVP than a whole playoffs thing, so there's still a lot to be decided (so like Stamkos being 2 points behind Johnson right now is basically nothing)

and they kinda loathe to give it to goalies unless:

1. there are like no goals and they basically have to
2. someone just absolutely locks it down

even through the dead puck era tenders didn't win it too often (just 8 of the last 26), so fading Crawful, Bishop & Andersen is probably smart. Lundqvist makes sense if you think the Rangers are winning it all, but they're very likely not.

D don't win it often either, just 5 times since '78. Keith probably the best bet there (10pts, +10), if Chicago wins, but he has to beat out Kane & Toews, and Crawful. otherwise no to D almost certainly.

well chi and anaheim cant be favourites because they have to play each other, and its a close series.

The main thing to take away from that is they dont give much of a chance to tampa which is why their opponent is naturally #1 for the cup

Doesn't necessarily mean bovada think they are #1. Could just mean that the Rangers are bigger favorites over the bolts than the hawks are over the ducks.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

johnson+bishop seem like good bets at 12:1 since stamkos is unlikely to win it with his bad series against montreal, if tampa wins the cup it has to be one of these two, and theyre less than 6:1 to win the cup ldo

Rangers best team all year, best record, most points, most heart, and best player itl in KREIDAH. Seems to line up perfectly with being the betting favorite iyam.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

SYF Conn Smythe rankings:

1. Lundquist
2. Keith
3. Hedman

Of course no one really gives a **** about defense and most people sortbypoints and award the Conn Smythe but it's really impressive how good Keith and Hedman have been at both ends of the ice for their teams. Obviously nothing needs to be said about Lundquist.

What is the longest layoff a team has had between playoff rounds? It feels as if the Hawks haven't played in the entire month of May

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

tb looked bad against the habs

nyr had more season points, second deep run in a row.

> bookies put rangers big favourite.

Im really intrigued about the matchup, i really dont see a blowout either way.

Bolts were 3-0 this year vs NYR but all three were first half I think. Expecting a tough series.
