    ECF- CAR vs. BOS

    Carolina gave that game away with two stupid and unnecessary penalties. At least they know they can skate with these guys now. Two days to get yelled at and hopefully a more disciplined effort and win Sunday. And I really can’t stand Boston.

    2019 Draft

    That's because you're dumb... You never draft for need that high in the draft. To do so, would be dumb... Zadina was the consensus best player available at 3, 4, 5 AND 6. To pass on him would have been dumb... Like Neo said... Really good players "fall three spots" (or more) every single year in the draft. It's very common... You're literally the only person that thinks Zadina is a "one-dimensional winger". Every scout, hockey analyst, even coaches and our (previous) GM, have gone out of their way to speak highly on his "two-way" game. Zadina is a shoot first winger, which is something we're lacking, but he can also set up plays and is responsible defensively. Again, you do NOT draft for need that high in the draft EVER, unless you value two prospect (one forward and one defenseman) exactly the same, which is rarely the case. If the Red Wings brass were not that high on Zadina, they could have (would have) traded back and taken a defenseman. That clearly wasn't the case, and for good reason. Same thing this upcoming draft. Byram likely won't be available at 6, and York, Harley, Broberg or Soderstrom would be a reach. If the Red Wings aren't that high on Cozens, Dach, Krebs, Turcotte, Zegras, Caufield or Podkolzin, they may opt to trade back for one of the defenseman. That most certainly will not happen though, as one of those forwards available will assuredly be much higher on their list than any of the aforementioned defensemen...

    Bad calls happen. They happen to every team. Dont give up 4 goals on your pk and you win the game. It's that simple.

    Regardless if it is or isn't true, Holland handled the whole situation extremely well IMO

    Zadina didnt actually drop. Just before the draft, everyone knew Dahlin and Svechnikov were going 1-2. Montreal was taking Kotkaniemi at 3. Again, everyone knew. The only deviation was that everyone expected Ottawa and Arizona to take Zadina and Tkachuk with their picks, because that was the consensus top 5 players in the draft. Noone expected AZ to take Hayton (including Holland). That's why Zadina was there at 6. Arizona went off the reservation (pun intended) drafting for need with a guy noone had in the top 10. You can't say Zadina "dropped like a stone" in that context. You can't fault him in anyway for AZ making a bad decision (IMO). Every analyst had him going top 5 ( to my knowledge). He went 6th. I don't get the criticism.

    If you allow 4 goals on one penalty kill you dont deserve to win. Vegas choked hard. They lost a 3-1 series lead

    Totally agree. Had to be tough for him and he's handling it with pure class.

    Why Whip Z-Pinch?

    Svechnikov sucks, called that one Zadina hasn't convinced me yet, but I have more hope for him than Svech

    True. There's a lot of that going around these days tho. No. Media is always right.

    Why Whip Z-Pinch?

    Because he hasn't filled everyone's nets with pucks, as promised. Also, because we're not playing for The Cup right now. He was a #6 pick, that should be enough to win The Cup with. He'S LaZy, AnD He sUx. Trade him for future considerations.

    2019 Draft

    That was my point when I asked to which defenseman he was referring. Since Hughes has seemingly become this far the best one drafted, but he wasnt "the best defenseman" available. So how do you know which one to pick? Unless you own a time machine. But I still firmly believe that this year zadina will take a big step forward whether it be in GR or Detroit.. but hey, we should have picked chychrun err.. Hughes, I mean boqvist.... ahhhhhh

    Maybe should have taken Q Hughes because I think he's the better prospect now, but he wasn't at the time, and the Zadina pick was also a good one. Dude's going to be more than fine.

    I don't want to see BOS win anything. That city has won enough in all it's major sports team.

    lol The way you believe this with such certainty despite a virtually unanimous opinion to the contrary is actually impressive. It's very reminiscent of watching an adolescent argue.

    Canes have to be happy with that first. Looked a little slow at the start but picked it up by the end of the period.

    Filip Larsson was lights out for his J20 team in Sweden as an 18 year old. Likely got watched by Hakan, and so we drafted him. After being drafted he comes to North America and in the USHL for one season and is lights out again. After that season he moves on to the U of Denver and was lights out all season again in college. Red Wings inked him to his ELC just a short time ago as soon as his freshmen season at U of Denver ended. He should be playing for Grand Rapids this coming year for the first time. Sateri is UFA right now and Rybar is RFA, but I'm not really too concerned about him competing against either of them if they are re-signed. Kids gonna continue the trend me thinks. This will be the biggest jump he's made though.

    Yes, there are a few... Filip Larsson is at the top of that list, but there's also Jesper Eliasson and Keith Petruzzelli that could amount to something. Goalies are voodoo, but Larsson has as good a chance to become an NHL starter as any goaltender prospect.

    I'm the opposite. I'd trade Athanasiou looong before I'd trade Mantha.

    ECF- CAR vs. BOS

    Yeah, I can't stand either of them. Seriously, though, I don't hate the Blues as much as I used to. They're not in our division anymore. I don't go to college anymore where I was surrounded by Blues fans. I'm still ticked off that San Jose was gifted that victory against Las Vegas. I definitely don't want the Bruins to win. I'm not the biggest fan of San Jose or St. Louis but don't hate either team. Carolina is the team I'd least mind winning it, but I think they're a boring team and can't stand looking at their uniforms unless I have blurred vision. The Red Wings better make the playoffs next season and make things interesting for us again. Tired of watching other teams for the entire two months.

    The Athletic (paywall) Justin Bourne wrote this article a month ago on the eve of the SC Playoffs. Basically about how parity will eff everyone up. And man, did he ever see it coming. Unreal. This is the last paragraph from his article.
