Well, apparently Taylor Hall won't win the draft lottery this year.

It's like the most common upsets in sports come from the 12th seeds. Being 5th is too dangerous now.

Agreed but is it really a True Upset anymore? I mean the League is more balanced now than it has ever been, in terms of Player Quality. Sure you still have Teams that don't have the Generational Talent like a Crosby or Ovechkin or McJesus but it doesn't matter. Blue Jackets swept the Lightning (Stamkos / Kucherov), Islanders swept the Penguins (Crosby / Malkin)

The league is almost as balanced as the ratio of lowercase to capital letters in your posts.

Has a 12th place team in their division ever win the Stanley Cup before?

For the first time since I was a senior in high school, the Flyers are the top seed in the Eastern Conference. I am 38 now.

 

Tough matchup against the Canadiens in the first round.

That year(2000) is closer to your birth year then it is now. Holy crap. That was the infamous Stevens on Lindros hit.

I hope a team like Winnipeg or Nashville, or even Minnesota gets the #1 pick, and Laferriere. But, it's going to be Edmonton or Pittsburgh.

 

Why?

I'm surprised at how unsurprised I am that the team that won the President's Trophy ended up going 0-3 in the seeding games, not having lead a game for a single minute.

And now they get the "pleasure" of playing a red-hot Canes team that's probably looking for revenge for last year's Conference Finals. Considering how Boston's been playing for the whole Round Robin, I dunno if I like their chances of beating Carolina in an actual playoff series that much.

I already accepted the fact they likely weren't making it back to The Finals after;

1. The pause :censored:ed up all their momentum

2. They won the Presidents Trophy.

I like the unpredictability this bubble Stanley Cup playoffs have been.

Toronto down 1 going into the third and blanked on the scoresheet so far.

 

So either this ends in heartbreaking elimination or a last-minute flurry of goals.
