These feel like more violent playoff games in terms of guys trying to hurt each other. I wonder if playing these same teams so many times in the regular season has built up too much hate.

Can’t see the f bombs being dropped behind Tippett’s mask.

Time to start the “McD isn’t as good as Greztky because of playoffs” like NBA types did with Lebron before Lebron won anything?

The Habs are playing Caufield. Of course, if he contributes some offense, Ducharme will gets tons of praise for smartly injecting offense when a truly smart coach would have played him in games one and two.

Nothing is going to out-retard the goaltender interference challenge that came straight from Bargainbin.

Gretzky took this job after McDavid's rookie season showed he was special. Now, Gretzky quits.

I'll forgive refs on the ice getting calls wrong because of how fast the game moves, but getting this wrong on review is embarrassing.

Yeah, that was bunk. They said because Foegele was there first or some such. But he didn’t touch the goalie.

Refs were totally right: there's a kicking motion by Staal !

You can direct the puck in, which is what it looks like.

There's the World Champs in Latvia with some funny results: Canada is currently 0-3, dead last with Italy.

Interesting read from 538, comparing McDavid's lack of playoff success to his closest comparables - Gretzky, Lemieux, and Ovechkin. Of all those four, only Gretzky had ANY playoff success before he turned 25... Mario only played in 11 playoff games in his first 6 seasons.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/co ... ering-him/

So there's still hope McDavid won't have that "but no Cups" label on his career.... provided he finds a way to escape the Oilers.

McDavid and Kassian to the Kings for Iafallo, Kempe, Byfield, Turcotte, a 2022-1st pick, a 2023-2nd pick and $50M in cash.

If he knows what's good for him, he should demand a trade to the Dallas Stars for Jamie Benn.

I've read 4 articles on McDavid and how the Oilers are squandering his best years, and haven't seen one single mention of Tippett and his sparkling .415 playoff success record.
