Does Dubas get the can? He’s assembled an excellent regular season team. At this point it’s hard to blame the GM for the very obvious curse that’s been placed on your franchise, right? 

Also, since there’s never a bad time to sh!t on the Rangers AND the league in the same post: how did anyone think it was remotely fvcking reasonable that the 115 point Maple Leafs draw the 110 point 2-time defending stanley cup champion lightning IN THE FIRST fvckING ROUND? While the 110 point Rangers play a limp-dick pudding eating Penguins team with their 9th string goalie.

Joke league. Fix this playoff sh!t.

League needs to get back to 1 thru 8 seedings. Enough of these seemingly prefixed matchups that add no drama to races down the stretch. Not to mention the lopsided matchups.

RNH had a wide open net but couldn’t handle the pass. Was very Zacha esque. 

I have been watching closely this series and, no lie, have had the same thought. He has a lot of Zacha moments where he either misses an open net or cannot handle a simple pass, doesn’t take initiative on the attack, etc..

take it a step further. no divisions. no conferences. schedule east/west coast trips as best you can, it’s not like air travel is prohibitively difficult in the year 2022. have smarter men than me figure out a way to make it round-robin-ish. seed the teams 1 through 16 and go to work.

Imagine how fun/weird/different a Devils/Blues first round series would be? Imagine the ratings bonanza of a Leafs/Bruins SCF? Imagine how violently this place would burn down with a Devils/Rangers cup finals?!?

It would be fun/weird/different to be playing in the first round of the playoffs…

I don’t think he will but he should.   The guy has been an absolute disaster IMO.  Most of the talent was in place when he took over.   He decided to add Tavares and stated at the time that that “can and will” keep the core together.   It’s been at the expense of depth and we just watched a series where all of their core performed at a high level so maybe the top heavy set up doesn’t work.  His contract negations were the worst.  He lost on all of the big ones.  
 

Then he does bizarre sh!t like announce they aren’t giving up their 1st round pick at deadline.   You know what that team needed?  A Blake Coleman or Nick Paul to add some scoring depth.   Why is that team worried about holding onto a late 1st rounder at this point?

Not as interesting a game as the previous 2 games tonight.

No but I would be terrified if I was an oilers fan.   This should be 5-0 by now, not a 1 goal game.

The conference finals was enough, this would be nightmare fuel. They will probably change the playoff format before this team actually makes the playoffs again so never know lol

It is so fun for me. I did want of wins of wild, kings, wsh, nsh, bos. Only Tampa won whom I want to win. I didn't expect but that was my little wish. I don't know how it is working. Trying to always root for underdogs?
