The expansion draft rules weren't really that favourable, Vegas just did a great job making a small handful of teams look extremely dumb. I think they should also be given a ton of credit for being super-aggressive and going out and getting a 1LW (Pacioretty), a 1RW (Stone), a 1G (Lehner), and a 1D (Pietrangelo) all in a span of 2 years while a bunch of other GMs just sat on their butts and did nothing to improve their teams.

Yeah, have to keep in mind that if the expansion draft rules had been as restrictive as in the past then that would have left Vegas with a bunch of minimum salary guys and, in order to reach the minimum, would have had a ton of money to sign UFAs so they probably get to competitiveness pretty quick regardless.

I'm nominally cheering for the Habs I guess but I'm pretty uninterested in actually watching any of this.

I'm curious just because the Habs steamrolled Winnipeg, but yeah I'm not the biggest fan, and I definitely won't be interested in the final, pretty much whatever combination it is.

Bender:
The Habs looked good in the beginning but are taking some bad penalties. Also I thought the Leafs should've tried shot faking Price more. He bites pretty easily.

Thankfully not an issue we have in Ireland. I don't think I know of any Habs fans here and the hockey fan fraternity isn't exactly huge  ;D
