I think NMCs usually kick in July 1st before the season they're scheduled for but I'm not 100% sure

I believe you are right. Contract years run July 1 - June 30, so I imagine, for the sake of consistency, every other details like Group IV, NMC, and NTC all start July 1 of the given year.

There is scientifically no such thing as momentum anyway.  It's just a sports catchphrase. There's nothing in recent production that is capable of predicting future production.  

That being said, they finished ahead of teams they needed to finish ahead of to make it to the playoffs.  Would you rather be the Red Wings or the Capitals right now?   Both didn't make it to the ECF, let alone the Stanley Cup...  Florida and Anaheim got trounced in the first round.

Sky fell out in the beginning of the season, they didn't really earn their spot in the playoffs, it was dependent on other teams loosing!

I'm sorry, but that's a crappy argument. Just because they lost their last game doesn't negate the points they earned through 81 games.

Larkin - Datsyuk - Mantha
Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader
Tatar - Athanasiou - Jurco
Helm - Sheahan - Richards / Glendening

DeKeyser - Green
Smith - Quincey
Kronwall - Marchenko / Ericsson

Howard / Mrazek

I don't think pairing Datsyuk with a guy in the playoffs that he's hardly played with before is a good idea. 

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Nyquist - Sheahan - Tatar
Larkin - Athanasiou - Mantha
Helm - Glendening - Richards
Jurco - Pulkkinen 

DeKeyser - Quincey
Kronwall - Smith
Green - Ericsson

What can you do but laugh?

These pompous, greedy jerks don't care about the experience, they just want your dollar.  I'd love to see the warning on the ticket about "obstruction".  I bet it's not nearly as clear as what these pictures show. You can't see a thing!
