  1. would you have felt better if i would have said 2 original 6 teams with a lot of viewers? Instead of specifically name the cities? Lemme know
  2. Yeah you guys can just twist the rules a bit so that the site can make a bit of money. Just like the league twisted the rules to get Chicago and MTL in the playoffs to make a bit of money.
  3. so i assume they'll have to test before each games or something? imagine... Stanley Cup finals Bruins vs Avs for example... after game 2 one player is tested positive... and he's been exposed to basically all players.. then you need time to test everyone. Some positive players would have to stay behind. Imagine they are star players? with the way 2020 is shaping up so far. I have no reason to believe the playoffs will go smoothly without some sort of catastrophe
  4. it's refreshing to hear that they are not putting pressure though. I got a call from a salesman from my internet provider last week trying to get me to upgrade my internet to a phone landline/digital tv/internet bundle... i had to go from being super friendly to eventually "sorry dude but exactly how many times i will have to tell you that i "absolutely do not need or want a landline and digital tv" before you get a clue and let go?" Like... I know they are desperate to make a sale but i said a million times that i do not need those services, even less if i have to pay more than what i'm paying already for something i don't want or need.
  5. Detroit and NJ are awfully similar. Both teams paid the price after a long run of being from above average to excellent for a long period of time without looking out for the future. They made good picks and got lucky with the draft (especially with datsyuk and Zetterberg) were able to get a VERY solid core where they could only patch work around that core and stay relevant...they rode that wave for as long as possible without looking at the long-term, unwilling to take a little step back to potentially setup the future and they ran their rosters and prospect pool to the ground. Many teams around the league should take notes, Chicago for example is already paying the price and should trade one of their top guys for future consideration while they have value before they have terrible prospects and underperforming 35+ kane and toews taking up so much of the cap that they either couldnt trade or wouldnt get any good value from. Same thing with Pittsburgh and many other teams
  6. Let's not put that much expectations on Blackwood. He's a young goalie. Goalies are incredibly inconsistent. Even the best proven goalies can be on top of the world one year and be below average the next season.
  7. No whoever win it from the bottom 7 team cannot lose it. Here's how it COULD go for example. OTTAWA win the lottery and get the first overall pick. Team B win the 2nd lottery and get the second overall pick. NJ win the 3rd lottery and get the 3rd overall pick. So now the draft order would be 1.Ottawa 2. Team B (unknown) 3. NJ 4. Detroit 5. Ottawa 6. LA 7. ANA 8. Buffalo so now... we don't know the rest yet cause it will depend on who lose the play-in... who gets that 2nd overall pick will be another lottery from all the loser play-in teams in phase 2. That being said... we CAN get screwed in the 2nd drawing... IF Arizona win that lottery. Cause then we'd lose that pick for this year.
  8. well that's how it's always been isn't it? its like teams in the playoffs... all the teams losing in the first round will be ranked based by their standings in the season... then same thing for the 2nd round etc so it makes sense that they are doing it this way... what other way could they do it really?
  9. the best case scenario for us would be Montreal winning against Pittsburgh Vancouver winning against Minny Chicago winning against Edm Nashville winning against Arizona Then Vancouver losing in the first round. That way the Arizona's pick would go from 10th to 8th. And we'd get the Vancouver 1st round pick.
  10. No you need to root for the Canucks at first. Then root against them if they make the playoffs
  11. Total Recall fan i see... It's gonna suck SO hard if all 3 picks are not won by teams in the bottom group. Cause then we won't know if we do get the Arizona pick or not this year. So we may have 2 top 10 picks or not. And having to wait to know that will suck. It doesnt suck in the sense that... Arizona will have the same odds to win if it one done at once or not... but having to stretch that for us will suck if that happen. And let's not forget that fvcking Taylor Hall is on that team. So we're STILL at risk of only having one first round pick this season right now and it already sucks to have to wait to know.. but potentially have to wait even longer? ughh
  12. So i'm not sure i fully understand that phase 2 thing? ok as im typing this i think i understood... So basically... the first phase will be "DET, OTT, OTT, LA, ANA, NJ, BUF" plus... a list of letters not unassigned to a specific team yet... so say E is picked for first overall... it says it will be award in phase 2... So... will it be awarded to wtv falls on that letter position when it's all said and done... or they'll do another lottery with just those teams?
  13. well it was officially NOT random anymore edit: also which one was it? Left or right?
  14. That's basically how i see it. The Play-In is not the playoffs... teams are awarded a condensed "remaining of the season / race for the playoffs" done in 5 games. So i don't think we should see it as they are given a shot at the cup AND the first overall. They are given a chance at the playoffs. That being said... I still think teams like us who were like .0001 behind like MTL but didn't get a chance to win a spot in the playoffs... are only getting that .0001 leg up for the draft lottery. I mean... it's incredibly hard to not be biased looking at this overall. I still think the team who didn't get a shot... should have a bump in % chances and the one who goes a shot at the playoffs should have less.
  15. i mean im usually im TRYING to be fair / neutral and not biased. So all i can come up with to go against my thought of they CAN have the cake and eat it too... i guess those teams were robbed of an opportunity to win a spot... so they are given that chance in a few less games... so all in all the team deserving will be in the playoffs and the ones who doesn't will have a shot at getting better through the draft... so that's fair... but cause it goes against my team's good interest... i don't like it.. but i can admit i'm just biased on that angle
  16. oh its been that a thing way before your time my man lol
  17. IMO if a team like... MTL voted for the 24 teams format. Just so they have a CHANCE at the cup even if they didnt deserve the chance or had great odds. It should mean that they are forfeiting the chance to land a top 3 pick. You can't have you cake and eat it too
  18. Well it's kind of typical here that if you have an unpopular opinion that the regulars will turn into a mob and witch hunt you. It's a lot of fun But that's the structure of an argument these days. When someone has a different opinion in an argument... you don't counter the point.. the reflex is to counter by trying to make the person look dumb so his argument doesn't matter. edit: funny enough that happened to me awhile ago when Torts was hired as the Canucks coach. I have a buddy who's a vancouver fan, he's from saskatoon. So i posted or commented on his fb saying that was a terrible match, that Torts was not the right coach for guys like the Sedins etc etc and dear lord. I got jumped like crazy for saying like "i know Torts and how he works" (cause he coached across the bridge and i followed his career somewhat, knew his system, what he was asking from players... obviously didn't mean i knew him personally). Anyway... i made sure to find that thread once he got fired and get back at them with a fresh I told you so lol
  19. Yeah depending on who we land in the draft we could be VERY excited to see him in action
  20. im hearing that next season will be pushed back about a month too. makes sense i guess but it sucks
  21. Good thing Lou is not here anymore. Would be a shame to get this gem and have him shave this gorgeous beard
  22. Imagine just for an exercise that i knew nothing about the guy, how would you describe him and what he could bring. i actually know nothing about the guy.
  23. So now. living in habs land. All im hearing from the media and fans is that the league is against them and trying to change the rules because of Price... claiming that teams are scared to play against him in the playoffs... Now that the Pens apparently voted no to the playoffs format out of fear of playing against Price etc etc I fvcking hate that fanbase and their media so so bad.
