Stanley Cup Playoffs 2020 Thread

Recommended Posts

Yay for Conor Shears. First player to score an NHL goal in July, officially but unofficially. 
 

Who you got winning the cup?

I just need Columbus to win their series so Leafs nation can just shut up.

I'd rather see the Leafs beat the Jackets in a long, back and forth 5 game angst filled series...only to have their head handed to them in the next series.

Just as enjoyable for me...but it ensure no chance they get that top pick.

Well, I see the Laffs didn’t bring their playoff beards like the Flyers did (unless you count Aostan’s porn stache).

Matthews seems like such a cool dude I've said this before. I can't really hate him, he's so laid back.

My sarcasm detector is broken on this take.

This is a good call, even though wrong, considering how often I'm sarcastic. It can read both ways haha but no.

When I think of “cool” NHL players, Ovi and Malkin and Subban come to mind. 
 

Aostan seems pretentious to me. Like his parents could be Chet and Muffy, and he overvalues some unknown indie band that thinks they’re ironic And misunderstood but in reality their music just sucks. 
 

Also the mooning incident doesn’t sound “cool” to me either. Maybe when I was 12ish.

To be honest I didn't even think about that.

That can't even be dismissed with "just someone being a young kid" either, it was straight ridiculous.

Fantastic short handed effort from Kapanen and Kerfoot to combine for a goal.

A few boxes ticked for the Sabres, there.

The play of MTL in this game reminds me of watching the Sabres, just without an Eichel

Stanley Cup Finals Prediction:

Vegas vs Philadelphia

Winner: Vegas

If there's a way to guarantee that I don't watch, it's this.

Oh, God, no.  Just no.  Anyone but that.  Even the team from The Great Satan.

My fearless prediction ... The Sabres won't win a damn thing.  Nadda.  Zilch.

Be happy, my predictions are usually a complete disaster!

I suppose it's safe to say the league would be pretty happy if LaFrenierre ended up in Montreal.

I wouldn’t be shocked if that happens. 
 

I also wouldn’t be shocked if he doesn’t live up to expectations.

Why does everyone hate Vegas? Lol 

I'd rather some newbie fans get a title and hooked on the game than some long standing fans of other teams who have been beaking me about the Sabres for years. 

Shh. The Vegas fans don't know we're the nerds yet.

Even if he's pretty good he probably won't live up to what Montreal fans will expect/want.  Personally I think Byfield might turn out to be the better player.

Calling them the Laffs while their playing and the Sabres continue to sit....

Why isn't this the 'Stanley Cup Qualifiers 2020 Thread'?  ?

 

This is like watching the end of the season, after the Sabres have been officially eliminated, to see who makes the playoffs. 

Wake me when the actual playoffs start ... ?

 

(In all seriousness, I forgot that they had started.) Edit: apparently, that's because they haven't really started.

what happened to hockey players? There has to be a fight after every hard hit...even if it's clean?

The Canes are incredible at creating offense with the puck. They started building toward this in 2015. 

Jason and Ralph talking about how important it is that our guys are so close was/is nice, but it takes a long time to get this good at hockey, and it still feels like we haven't started down a road that will develop into something like this on the ice yet given that we are still the worst chance-generation team in the league three years running
