    Edmonton will probably win but they are not deep at all. They have 2 elite players and then trash.

    After they get past Chicago, if they get past Chicago, then they're probably done.

    But I think Edmonton wins three games, not sure if Chicago even gets one game.

    Yeah, most matchups are pretty competitive for the most part.

    Overtime Playoff Hockey is insanely nerve racking, when you have big stakes riding on the outcome.

    Regular season means nothing now. Any team can get hot and win a few series.

    Will be lots of parody I would imagine.

    Could be less about a love for Edmonton and more about Chicago sucking and not matching up well in the spot.

    It's a risk, it's a bet, it could always lose.

    Chicago is awful. Tippett much better coach as well and no chance the Hawks can stop draisaitl and mcdavid.

    Blackhawks defense is trash, they won’t win anything, anything can happen in a 5 game series but they won’t win anything big.

    We shall see. Oilers have two studs and a bunch of avg joes. Hawks have a similar situation and experience.

    Definitely worth noting and it is the BlackHawks organization, but hopefully that just translates to 1 win in the series.

    Blues behind golden nights and avs in the west? That gotta be some kind of joke. Although avs do scare me from a matchup standpoint. This ainít me being a homer either (just like it wasnít last year! Yaíll have seen me fade them many times in playoffs over the years!). Blues will be back in the western conference finals. Team is so well put together and now taresenko fully healthy!

    Stars at +1800 not a bad bet imo. They have a goalie that could carry them a long way. They were absolutely blues toughest series last year.

    I respect the stars, tough physical team that can defend, I don’t see the offense to win the cup though, they can’t consistently score 4 goals or more, which is key in the league today.

    I like Boston to come out of the East but I think Blues, Colorado, Vegas, all capable of coming out of the west. I don’t trust binnington to play at the same level he did last year in the playoffs though, he was playing for a job last year and he hasn’t been as sharp this year.

    Also, if the playoffs are in a bubble then there is less risk of that lesser home team getting a win or two.

    It may not be as big of a factor as the charity home NBA playoff wins, which are sometimes stupidly ridiculous, but the lack of home playoff games could lead to more sweeps and shorter series' in general.

    Books have been begging for people to take the blues future all season. It's incredibly difficult to repeat after what they did. I don't like Vegas but they have great speed which is huge. I'm not sure the avs are ready to take the next step yet.

    I think the lightning come out of the east. Lots of people like the flyers as a dark horse but i think the momentum they had was ruined by the stoppage.

    I don’t see how a player can receive medical assistance and stay in a bubble, which could be a big issue for the nhl.

    I think it's almost a total restart as far as momentum. As the playoff ensue, we'll get a better picture of who's hot who's not.

    I'm struggling with this in the NBA I would absolutely love it if we can back in the same market we left, but it's such a risk to bet it will happen and continue the aggressive strategy I was posting.

    I think Bruins go back out the East. Like I said if not blues I kinda like dallas. Vegas donít scare me. Yea it hard to repeat but donít mean it canít be done, blues gonna be a very tough out for anyone, they havnt lost their hunger, they have great leadership, id be shocked if they didnít get to at least the west conf finals. Maybe they were begging cause I have a 10-1 on them, be careful what you wish for!

    What do you mean? You mean like on the ice med assistance or a COVID med assistance? Medics could be bubbled too, I really know nothing about the protocol.

    I'm sure we'll see some players exit the bubble and quarantine to get back in, probably not reckless NBA style though.

    But you never know...lol.

    Surely they will have plenty of medical staff in the bubble??!! NHL not like mlb, they have put plenty of time and thought into this while mlb was fighting over money and amount of games!
