2024 NHL Playoffs

Playoffs are about 10 days away or so. A few teams still vying for the final few spots, but a lot of teams locked in already.

I looked in on the thread from last year - Vegas had 0% of people voting them to win the Cup. ha Is this the year Edmonton "takes the next step?" Colorado back on top? NYR 30 year anniversary of their Cup run results in another Cup? Carolina out in the semis AGAIN? Lots of intriguing story lines this year.

And why don't they have the "e" in the standings anymore when a team is mathematically eliminated? Silly.

So, in the East, you have NYI and WAS in the final two spots, with PIT, DET, PHI still alive.
In the West, it looks much more locked up, but technically, LAK and VGK in the last two spots with STL the only team mathematically alive.

Hoping Rangers win the cup. Been 30 years now. They have all the tools to make it happen. But I would be happy if Panthers won their first one as well after last years run reminded me of their 96 run and how Vanbiesbrouck carried the team to the finals.

Yeah, we'll see on the Panthers - they were already behind in the series with the VGK, but when they lost Tkachuk - who was having one of the most clutch postseasons in a long, long time - their chances of winning ended. I like their game - they can play fast, they can play tough, and they have goaltending. So, they have a good shot.

From a friend who is a huge VGK fan, he doesn't think they have what it takes to repeat this year - injuries, etc., so it should be a fairly wide open West. Will be fun to watch.

As for NYR - Laviolette seems to have his best season with a team be his first season, so NYR should do all they can to take it all the way this year. But, for some reason, I don't think it will be them, even though they have a solid line-up and one of the best goalie tandems possible.... I think I am just biased against Lviolette though.

Pens playoffs are right now. Can't believe we're even in the mix for as bad as the season has been. 10 days ago, their chances of making playoffs were 1.8%. Tonight will be the test, as all 4 battling teams are playing.

Honestly, if the Pens do make the playoffs, Sid 100% deserves MVP for carrying this POS team on his back.

Like the Canes in the east. Like Canucks in the west. Tocchet knows how to win...I say it's their year (to riot).

Yea..... I got nothing for you there... Maybe they should move the cup out of Toronto.

Love the Leafs TBH.

Wow...that got personal real quick like. Guess by being a Pens fan, and watching considerable more playoff hockey than any Ranger fan, that would entitle me as an expert, at least you can see that.

Cant expect me to like the Rangers. Been a hater since St.Louis' mom died and the team rallied around it, crushing our hopes and dreams that season. Two years ago just added to that fuel, in game 7 OT none the less. Can even go back to the Adam Graves slash on Lemieux, if we need to drop back some years. Just saying that hate would have dropped a notch if they could have knocked the Islanders down the other day. Sheesh

EDIT: Your team has the chance to make me a believer again tonight...

What a game between Caps/Bruins last night! Tons of intensity. The score was not indicative of the action, as both teams had a few sick saves and a few empty net misses.

NYR clinch President's Trophy...

West is now locked up, East - 4 teams vying for that final spot. The maths gets tough for some of these teams. Like Philly has to win in reggo (and get additional help), so you may see Philly pull the goalie with a few minutes left in the game if they are tied...

Rangers have a real good shot if they stay healthy. They certainly have the talent the grit, and the goaltending. Congrats the Rangers. Would love to see a Rangers Dallas Fina.l Or even a rematch of '94 against Canucks.

Go Avs!

Although their last 10 record of 3-5-2 is not comforting going into the playoffs.

I could see it. Vancouver is a good team this year. They have a shot at getting there. West is wild - I can see a lot of the 8 teams making it.

Rangers - President's Trophy "curse..." means I don't think they will make it. It's easy to say it would be Florida then, since they were there last year. But, really, I don't know who it will be. Maybe it's the Maple Leaf's year.....LOOLLLLLL

Caps-Flyers yesterday was wild. Caps go into turtle mode up 1-0... of course Philly was going to get one so that it would be tied late and they have to pull the goalie. It was fun to watch the spectacle. And I don't blame Torts for pulling the goalie. I would have told my staff that I don't want to know what's going on with the DET/MTL game. Plus, who is to say that the Caps wouldn't have scored in the last 3 minutes of 5v5 or in O/T or won in Shootout....

Anyways, it's time for the games to ramp up in intensity!
