I'll figure out my playoff picks tomorrow.

Somebody made the playoffs, right?

For the Greater Good of the Whiteout

I could see either team winning most of the Eastern series, excluding the Flyers.

West should have two cake-walks (Shreds and Jerts) and two interesting series that I won't watch because all the games will starts at 10pm ET.

my prediction for Leafs Bruins is Bruins in 7 and every Bruins win comes in OT after a late tying goal with the tying and winning goal both scored by Brad Marchand

That checks out!

BTW Marchand will catch... Marner with a high-elbow, not get called for it, then blame Marner for injuring himself.

My power rankings in terms of how much I want teams to win:

16. PNES: An insufferable three-peat? Fuck no.
15. Ducks: Yeah let's validate Randy Carlyle hockey
14. Broons: If not for Brad Marchand and David Backes I might be able to talk myself into not disliking them, but fuck Marchand so haaaaahhhhd
13. Flyers: I don't hate the team, Gudas excepted, but this city doesn't need any more championships this year
12. Beejs: Yeah let's validate John Tortarella hockey (again)
11. Devils: You won the lottery and robbed the Goil, that's enough
10. Kings: No particular hard feelings but they won a few Cups somewhat recently so who cares
09. Leaves: You got Matthews but more importantly I've seen a lot of "Why wouldn't John Tavares sign here for one year?" crap
08. Avs: I don't know where to put something that cannot possibly happen
07. Wild: I don't know where to put something that cannot possibly happen
06. Vegas: It would be amusing, I guess?
05. Jerts: I feel like this is the year they win a round, maybe two, not win the Cup
04. BLOT: The top four teams are pretty close, I'd mostly root for the BLOT to win so Yzerman can go back to Detroit and stop Holland from Holland'ing
03. Shreds: I like this team a lot
02. Caps: They'd usually be my first pick but the Ovechkin / Putin stuff is... not great
01. Sharks: Thornton wins a cup, shaves his beard into it on the ice

Sure why not.

16. Leaves: They're the Leaves, and no other Canadian team should win a cup but my Canadian team.
15. Jets: See above
14. Ducks: Fuck these goons. It doesn't help that they're like kryptonite to the Flames.
13. PNES: Enough already
12. Bruins: Fuck Boston 1000%. Knock out the Leaves and be gone.
11. Lightning: There's still some animosity there. Most of it's gone, but you know.
10. Avalanche: I like user shnak!?
9. Devils: I actually kind of hope they go on a deep run and Halls cores 1000 goals, but zzzz
8. Blue Jackets: I would like this team a lot more if it wasn't for a)Tortorella, b)Ohio
7. Flyers: Like neuart said, you've won a lot this year, it actually would be hilarious if they won a cup and made that fanbase even more insufferable, but they won't.
6. Wild: I've always kind of wished good things for the Wild but there are a bunch more teams that are so much more likable.
5. Kings: I like the Kings. They've won some recent cups and there are more deserving teams right now. I like it when southern California gets excited about hockey for a few weeks, and the bumper shots on TV are gorgeous.
4. Sharks: Watching the Sharks choke every year was one of my favourite traditions, but I'm starting to feel pretty bad now. It's getting sad.
3. Caps: Just get it done already.
2. Shreds: Nashville is good, the Shreds are good.
1. Vegas: I've got three face cards after the turn. I'm waiting on the river but I'm all in, baby.

Surprised people think the Wild can win a game with half an AHL defense playing but ok!

Ah, never underestimate a team from Winnipeg not performing to expectations when it really matters.

Lightning in 6
Bruins in 7
BJs in 6
Flyers in 7

Predators in 4
Jets in 5
Knights in 6
Sharks in 7

Honestly I could see the BLOT stumbling. Vasi hasn’t been great lately, who knows how healthy Stamkos is, Girardi exists, etc.

I’d like to see the Caps finally win but that Beej team could go on a run.

Getting Panarin for Saad was such a steal for them.

I can't see both the BJs and Flyers upsetting, but I'm going to keep picking the BJs until they finally do win a series.

Flyers have been really good for stretches, but I think goaltending is going to be a mess in that series.

Evgeny Kuznetsov has known Artemi Panarin since they were 5 growing up in Chelyabinsk. "If I will see him, for sure I will talk to him. But we're not that close to calling FaceTime before the sleep. We're not that close."
