Im hoping for the Panthers and Dallas, though that is tuff to say. Being Canadian, it would be nice to see a Canadian team win the Cup again, in my life time.

Hope Edmonton wins the cup, they deserve this series.
Gotta hand it to Silovs
rookie goaltender Arturs Silovs brought his A-game

But definitely will be cheering on the Oilers now.

Yeah Silovs was amazing and now the Canucks have a goaltending dilemma for next year? Do they keep Silovs and trade either DeSmith or Demko?

I'm pulling for Dallas, but only because there's a strong Kamloops connection.

DeSmith contract is up, try to get what they can prior to free agency for him.
Keep Demko as #1, Silovs as backup. Just so Demko can be rested at latter part of the season alternate between the 2 goalies.
Elias Pettersson definitely needs to show up for playoff games and score, if blood clots are going to be an ongoing issue with Brock Boeser. As much as he is a hell of a player, he definitely needed in the playoffs.
Management needs to take very long hard look at what’s best for the team, regarding Brock Boeser.

Edmonton weakest link is goaltending, Dallas will knock Edmonton out of playoffs. If Vancouver had been more aggressive on shooting pucks at the goal we would be heading to Dallas.

Edmonton 21 blocked shots. Vancouver 8.

Is Petterson the new Magic Man like Kent Neilson was. Great during the season, disappears in the playoffs.

As much as I hate it, Van has a pretty good core for a few more years.

Good news is; the Flames has the league right where they want them.....I hope. :biggrin:

The healthy scratch is their prospect defenseman, who strangely is also named Elias Pettersson.

Vancouver actually has 2 Elias Pettersson
First one is a 25 year old forward who currently on main team.
Second one is a 20 year old defensemen who isn’t playing on main team.

Who's the squinty eyed guy, beard and a suit, who sits across from Bieksa?

He goes on too much about stats while Bieksa gives opinions with a touch of humor.

Don't know but was thinking the same. And when the H.e. double hockey sticks is Mclean going to retire!

Luke Gazdic, who played only a few games in the NHL, but has one viral Youtube moment thanks to being destroyed by Dustin Byfuglien. I don't know why Sportsnet thought that this guy would be a good commentator, but here we are.

I say keep Silvos and Tolopilo. Ditch the 5 million spent on their "number 1", Demko. I think Silvos proved himself.

I think Dallas will take Edmonton, though it would be nice to see a Canadian team win, again. I also believe Dallas with their depth could beat the Rangers, but not sure if they could be the Panthers. They all should be good series either way.

I recall Byfuglien when he played for the Prince George Cougars. He was a tank.
The Cougars had a few big players, one being Zdeno Chara and another guy whose name escapes me. I believe he died a few years ago, head injuries? But he was a big guy as well.
