Set by Colton Orr.


Finished my bracket. Picked the Caps to finally win it all.

Vancouver has the same amount of points as Toronto did last year, and they're twenty one points clear of last place

that's... incredible

If they read wrong and go too aggressive, it creates grade A scoring chances for the opposition.

Going after the third pairing, however, is probably not the same level of advantage. You would be better off targeting our 2nd pairing, where Staal and Holden tend to sit flatfooted and use their sticks to try and make plays, frequently allowing a skilled skater to dance circles around them. Galchenyuk could have a field day against them. The bottom pairing, on the other hand, has our best D-man not named Ryan McDonagh in the form of Brady Skjei and a perfectly capable defensive defenseman in the form of Brendan Smith. And even though Skjei is a rookie, you're not going to be able to take advantage of his inexperience. He played top minutes in the playoffs last year against the Penguins, where he was one of the very few bright spots of that campaign, so this isn't new to him.

It would be all fine and dandy if AGally weren't playing with Steve Ott and Andreas Martinsen haha

Leafs improved from that season by 26 points. If Colorado does the same next season they'll have...74 points.

I picked Hawks over Caps in most boring bracket ever. Just don't see any big upsets this year (Bruins over Sens not an upset don't @ me SNESgaf I'm sorry). I did pick the Habs to beat the Bruins in the second round though, mainly because sometimes you have to look at a sports city and say "just fuck those guys already".

My hot take picks are Blue Jackets over Pittsburgh and Oilers win their division.
