18/19 NHL Thread!!! didn't see another one
God tonight is just a nice friendly reminder of how crap the canucks are. At least Karlsson didn't sign.

DeebieSkeebiesStarting to think that EK's ankle issues are more apparent each year now
DingoSeanAnother OT loss tonight.
HOW DO YOU LOSE IN OVERTIME WITH BRENT BURNS AND ERIK KARLSSON.
They should be able to play some random Minnesota High Schooler in there and win every single overtime with those two...
DeebieSkeebiesI watch a ton of Pacific Division games cuz theyre the only ones on when im at work and bored but like yeah, i noticed that too. Especially when you guys have sick forwards like Hertl.
VinnieFSo in the end Ottawa traded Turris and a probable 1st overall pick for 2 middling prospects and a ~20th overall pick. Good one.
VinnieFMaybe Stone will now actually be considered for the Selke now that he's off Ottawa. He is the best defensive forward in the league who can also put up 1 point/game.
DeebieSkeebiesPredicitons/hopes for the first few rounds of the playoffs?
- Obviously another choke job for me from Toronto against Boston
- Caps get through the 1st round and meet with the Pens again
- One of those shitty western conference teams that eeked in on a wildcard are going to have an actually unexpectedly deep run
- Thinking Tampa is for sure an ECF lock, and its gonna be between either Washington or Boston.
MLBHonestly I’m gonna tell you that Tampa is going to win the Cup right now.
VinnieFEdgy choice. I would have gone for the safer bet of Ottawa winning.
.frenchyTampa vs Calgary cup final PLEASE
and i know the odds arent too good, but praying MTL can make the playoffs. 1 point out of the 2nd wild card spot
MLBDuuuuuuuddde.....I know that game. Habs need to win every single game, and TO just need to keep losing. That’s the dream right there. Even if they don’t make it, I’m happy with how the season turned out. Seems like the build is working well with Tatar and Domi. Hell, even Armia is a good pull.
BdoobzVancouver with pick 10. "Lose for Hughes" didn't work...
BdoobzWhat is happening to the lighting...
DeebieSkeebiesThere goes kucherov probably for at least 3 games/probably the rest of the series. What an idiot
BdoobzMissed it, what'd he do?
DeebieSkeebiesTripped a player and then proceeded to board him shortly after. One game is fair considering hes not really a repeat offender and he let his emotions get the best of him.
But holy shit, This BOS/TOR is nuts. Last night was just mayhem all over.
BdoobzEvery time Mark Stone scores he goes ape shit. Reminds me of those kids in elementary school who scored in a recess soccer game.
BdoobzI can't imagine how bad Tampa feels right now....unreal.
DeebieSkeebiesThat was unbelievable......62 wins, 128 points, and not a single playoff win. Holy shit.
BdoobzHas to be one of the biggest upsets in sports history. One of the most dominant regular season teams being handled by an 8th seed. This will haunt Tampa for a long time
DeebieSkeebieshonestly dude maybe 2 weeks before the regular season ended, I was kinda cringing at columbus going all-in with some of their signings just to miss the playoffs because it wasn't looking too good with Montreal on their doorstep. Definitely the biggest NHL upset ive ever seen, and definitely in all of sports. Wow.
.frenchyPittsburgh AND Tampa getting swept in the first round?
Yeah my bracket is fucking RUINED, man these playoffs are fun to watch this year. The Reaves and Kane rivalry is a brewin'
