Mackinnon is arguably the best player in the world, no one better at getting it done when it counts than the man himself. McDavid, Matthews, Crosby are all out and each one chocked in the playoffs each was -2...
Crosby has 2 pts in 6 games and was negative +\-
Matthews had 4 pts in 6 games and one doesn't count. Also minus
McDavid had 4 pts in 2 games and in the 4 OT periods or whatever he had no pts, and in the first 2 games nothing. Also -/

Yo I really hate Sheldon Keefes comments.

Dude said it’s; really sad and disappointing and hes basically crying??

If I’m the Coach I would be mad? We stunk? Keefe should be pissed at a poor series by a good team.

He got a assist on the nylander goal down 3-0 with a minute left... not really a point just fluff. You agree though? I actu

Huge props to Marc Bergevin. He went all in on this team. Never was afraid to take risks but this year he spent tons of money and needed the 2020-21 Montreal Canadiens to work and when they didn’t, he made what may be his biggest gamble ever and fired one of the NHLs best coaches to officially commit to this year and it paid off

It counts, it gave TOR a slim chance instead of none.

It's not like it was a 2nd assist ENG with 2 secs left to win by 3 instead of 2.

I've literally never seen as much blue like today looking at the AC-GM feature.

Tell me, should I click on armchair-gm without clicking on any of the teams?

It's not too bad.

Edit: there is at least 5 ACGMs on the 1st page that have nothing to do with TOR.

Yeah he's disappointed, being mad does nothing now the season is over and I imagine the team will look a lot different next year. I've been apart of a lot of teams from Atom up until junior and I have never once had a coach come in ripping and roaring pissed off after the season is over. It's just disappointment, they know they needed to be better they are all just dejected reflecting on what could've been.

Now that we know all the 2nd round matchups, the semifinals matchups (even including home ice) are already independent of each other. It will be:

#1 (COL/VGK) vs. #4 (WPG/MTL)
#2 (CAR/TBL) vs. #3 (BOS/NYI)

It’s also crazy that the lower seeds won every series in two divisions, and the inverse happened in the other 2 divisions. Although it does make sense, since everyone agreed that the Central & West were the most top-heavy divisions.

It's his job as the HC to make sure they don't stink. It's not like this series was stolen by a hot goalie. Price was good, but he didn't really steal anything.

TOR got outplayed and outcoached by MTL when they had their backs against the wall. Even without JT TOR had the better team on paper.

Tampa Bay was the lower seed

The entire page has something to do with 2 teams: SEA or TOR.

You still made a good point about the 3rd round matchups ... I didn't notice that.
