Tomorrow it's exactly one year when DeBoer was fired by VGK

Guess who is Stars' next opponent.

I like the story element in this. Will this be the DeBoer revenge tour, or will VGK show him exactly why he got canned?

Find out in next episode of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs awesome face

Dam wanted 2 recent expansion teams to duke it out

VGK vs SEA would have been funny

Will be an interesting Pacific division next year. VGK, SEA, LAK, EDM…could see any of them at top.

I'm going Canes in 6 and Stars in 7, I think the Canes have the deeper team, I feel like they can take care of the Panthers. For Vegas vs Dallas, it's going to be a close series, I went Dallas because I had them going to the cup finals in my bracket but that easily could go either way

My predictions for round 2:
Panthers in 5
Devils in 7
Stars in 6
Golden Knights in 6


3-1 with 2 of the three correctly predicted winners in the correct number of games ... I think I did pretty well.

Canes in 6
Stars in 6

More Finns More Wins (though I will say that if you don't count Raanta and Pulju then Carolina and Florida both have three Finns playing for them)

I doubt they really care about his criminal record. I mean, after all, they have let worse people own sports teams.

> they let John Spano buy the Islanders with money that didn't exist

> Harold Ballard was thrown in jail for tax evasion and let a child abuse ring operate under his watch, and wasn't forced to sell

> Bill Wirtz didn't have a criminal record or anything, but he was just an *sshole who ruined the team he ran

If anything, Snoop is good for this sport.


Fun story with him he was gonna be voted out of the NHL by the rest of the league (forced to sell and move on) but then he died 2 days before the vote or something

Guess God granted the man about to be cancelled from the NHL mercy

We shall see.

I think Carolina's strengths just play way too much against FLA's weaknesses.

Best defense core, best PK, immense depth, will give much higher pressure on the puck compared to Bruins and Leafs etc. Meanwhile FLA has weak PP, D core is slow and they are prone to stupid mistakes when there's very little time to perform.
