I imagine we'll see at least one b2b in the next round, as well. That should get them to just about in line with the other divisions (unless both 1st round match ups end quickly and they can start the 2nd round at the same time as the other divisions).

I sure hope that brutal giveaway by Marner doesn't cost us home ice at some point in the playoffs.

Hopefully, the Leafs win their last game, and only 3 teams will be able to take "home" ice from them.

Well that wasn't encouraging...
Leafs look like they don't care. Can't blame them.

Yeah. They look like a team that’s focused elsewhere. This game is basically just a more intense practice for them, any way. Not a ton of meaning for them.

Garry Galley is pretty ridiculous.  He has spend the entire game glowing about Ottawa players and then just went aww shucks Tkachuk just did a funny interference against Marner just the way he is to describe a penalty.  This is absurd as a broadcast

Just the worst homer on any broadcast. It’s terrible.

I don’t think the power play could be this inept if they tried to be. Or, maybe they are...

Also, every time the Oilers have beaten the Jets in the playoffs, they've made it to the final. One of these streaks is likely to be broken.

EDIT: what's more interesting is that they have us currently as the faves for the Cup, and EDM ahead of defending champ TBL.

I imagine a lot of that is based on the higher odds one of Toronto or Edmonton has of representing the North, while the other 3 divisions don't have quite as clear a picture.

Yeah I'd assume that the Leafs odds will go down in the Cup odds if they advance round over round.

Their model also seems to have us as the 2nd best team in the league behind only Colorado though. So while their Cup odds do factor in which teams everyone needs to go through they are still very high on the Leafs regardless.

Dom from The Athletic's model also has Colorado and Toronto with the highest odds of winning the Cup.

I mean I have seen a lot of stuff written on the Rangers how Lafreniere/Kakko/Fox are all untouchables in a trade for Eichel too.  Like you wouldn't trade Kaapo Kakko for Jack Eichel?  A guy with 40 points in 114 games.  I think he's a good young player and will probably be a good player but that's just crazy talk.

Yup. I get Fox being an untouchable - a young, top pairing, potential Norris candidate? That's similar value to a top C and equally difficult to acquire. The other two? They're going to be good young players, but I don't think either of them reaches the same level as Eichel.

(Insert Dumb and Dumber "so you're telling me a chance" meme)

It's nice, but not entirely accurate. Colorado can lose one of their games in OT/SO, and the Leafs can still pass them.

It’s Garrioch, so the bad take is to be expected, but yikes.
Recently on Puck Soup, Wyshinski said he wouldn't trade Jack Hughes straight up for Eichel and got soundly dumped on by Lambert and McIndoe.

Also a terrible take, but at least he's talking about a 19 y/o recent 1st overall pick with two full seasons under his belt now. Bad take, just not as bad as Garrioch.

Oh, no question! I just thought it was interesting to bring to attention.

For sure. There's going to be an epidemic of bad takes this summer. It's already started in earnest. Going to be hard to keep track of all of them.

I have no idea how this will work cap wise - Foligno, Hyman, Nash and Andersen all back at once?


Have to imagine this helped.

Playoff series are very rarely "easy" to win. Winning two rounds would be an accomplishment, regardless of who they beat. Other fan bases would downplay it, sure, but the team that comes out of the North would still be one of only 4 teams to do so this season.
