SDS is quite the iconoclast these days. I'd almost say he's giving me a run for my money.

My wife pointed out last night that the playoff beard was no where as prolific as in past years.  She's right, there are even some clean-shaved players on the benches.

To be clear, I actually don’t really care what these guys look like or say in interviews. But the playoff beard tradition of looking like 2 miles of bad road as a symbol of your trials and tribulations during your Cup journey has been co-opted by the hipsters. These guys could just as easily be seen ordering avocado toast and a nice triple IPA in flannel shirts as diving in front of a shot from the point.

It’s over man. Just play hockey.

I dunno.

Useless:

Fighting.

Responding to dirty hits on your teammates.

Feeling bad when your team loses.

Postgame interviews.

Beards.

Can we still have hats thrown on the ice? They delay the game, contribute to landfills, thus worsening global warming, and risk hypothermia in some markets.

I never minded the whole playoff beard thing, but now there are players who wear beards all season long (Burns, ROR, Thornton, etc.) Once the playoffs roll around, whose beard is a "playoff" one and whose is just a beard?  It's too confusifying...😕

Playoff beards were a cool thing to do, a show of solidarity maybe.  Still like it.

Not worthy of any more analysis really.

I would grow my playoff beard until victory is decided. But I'd shave before hoisting the Cup. Gotta look good in the pics.

Ken ***** Daneyko!

I saw Marchand in his sparse and quite terrible “playoff beard”.  Great player but that dude is just hideous.

We need beardmetrics. How successful are playoff beards? Does length factor into cup success? Do patchy growths detract from performance? Someone needs to get on it.
