Hard to dethrone a champ that’s allowed to circumvent the salary cap three years in a row. I guess $17 million over the cap ISN’T a competitive advantage.
Didn’t bother you two years ago? Cause this is year 3 that they are WELL over the cap.i do believe the Avs will say hold my beer . . . .and put Tampa down.
last year I thought it was BS what the bolts did with the salary cap but after kicking it around for a bit, I changed my mind. If there a hole in the system that you can take advantage of legally then whose fault is it if you do? Bettman should have closed the loophole years ago. not mad at Tampa, just that much sweeter when they go down
Actions where Wilson was suspended, don't even warrant a penalty for other players. Wilson cleaned up his act two season ago. I'd say the same for Marchand. Wilson didn't even crack the Top 20 for fights this season.He’s still doing that. Brad Marchand, Tom Wilson, etc. should all be gone.
Marchand is still a dummy too...(this coming from a Bruins fan)...Actions where Wilson was suspended, don't even warrant a penalty for other players. Wilson cleaned up his act two season ago. I'd say the same for Marchand. Wilson didn't even crack the Top 20 for fights this season.
Inconsistent? For sure.
No, they have Mike Smith, who's save percentage is a whopping 0.015% lower than Oettinger and is no slouch. Plus he has the same name as the guy who played Bubbles on TPB. If that's not an omen for success I don't know what is.Edmonton doesn’t have Oettinger. Edmonton is going to get smoked.
But the Kings were lagging toward the end of the season and finished 3 in the division.Haha and it took Edmonton 7 to beat the Kings who finished a whopping 1 point ahead of Dallas. Just saying
All of this speculation regarding Calgary vs Edmonton is fun. But you chaps know as well as I do that this series will be completely unpredictable. Probably the hottest rivalry in hockey right now, anything can, and will, happen. One thing I would not be betting on is a sweep.
