My guess is Leafs in 2.

The caps will forfeit the series after Lou himself comes out on the ice and decides to bust

Also to be followed by mega jersey sales for Duchene, posts of "best team since 1993!" and "oh my god Duchene - Radulov unf unf unf!"

Won't happen this year with the Leafs having to beat 2 Metro teams to get there. Maybe the next time the Leafs make the playoffs in 2030

Apparently he has no concussion symptoms. Doesn't appear to be injured. Learned this from yesterday's Overdrive, which also features some of the worst hottakery you're likely to hear this week.

Yeah I didn't understand ODog's take that Andersen's reaction in the Pittsburgh game ensured he came out. He almost insinuated that Andersen wanted to be pulled from that game for some reason and wasn't actually injured on the play.

Reminds me of the time the Kings color guy was reflecting on the fact that the President's Trophy was kind of meaningless because no winner had ever gone on to win the Cup in gosh, how many years? Decades? Has it ever happened? I don't think it has!

And then ten minutes later he had to correct himself because the Blackhawks did it two years prior, in 2013.

In addition to that, the Capitals themselves have advanced to the second round in half of the years that they've won the President's Trophy, the most recent time being last year. More President's Trophy winners have gone on to win the Stanley Cup in the past 30 years than have been eliminated in the first round over the same time period.

I knew AV would take the bait. Jeff Gorton shouldn't have even left the option on the table for him. This team is designed to be fast and skilled. That's how they're going to have to deal with "physical play" from Ott and co. Putting Tanner Glass is does absolutely nothing to address that and removes one of your fast, skilled players from the lineup. It's letting the Habs intimidate you into voluntarily making your own team worse before you even start playing the games.

We're going to get annihilated out there. It's going to be last year's first round all over again, just the Habs aren't as good as last year's Pens so the scores probably won't be quite as absurd.

He seems to believe that Andersen frequently checks out/misses games. Kind of weird, given that Andersen had the second most games played in the league this year (66).
