    Series begin in 6 days... Bruins and Lightning are heavy favorites to come out of the east. In the west Golden Knights are the favorites after getting healthy with Avalanche right behind.

    Need to do more research on these teams. But for first round I'm leaning:
    -Islanders -115 over Panthers
    -Hurricanes -135 over Rangers
    -Jets +100 over Flames
    -Penguins -235 over Canadiens

    I wouldn’t lay over -200 juice on anything before you watch some games, variance is likely to be very high and positive tests could occur.

    Take the rangers to get rid of Carolina.

    Edmonton over Chicago is the biggest lock in sports

    The Penguins are the way deeper team. Those odds will be worse before Saturday when people start betting.

    You aren’t getting a good line on the penguins. -195 is available, Montreal is the kind of younger team that shouldn’t be hurt by the shorter preseason.

    Pittsburgh is obviously the better team but they weren’t playing well going into the break and the games are in Canada, easier travel for the Canadiens despite obviously no fans. Montreal is the type of young team that should be fine with a short preseason.

    Impossible to say really

    Any team could get hot and make a rub, really anyones tournament to take.

    I have a future on las vegas from the start of the real season, hoping that hits.

    Ill have money on rangers to best Carolina but only because I am a rangers fan

    hard to see which momentum carries over. teams had time to adjust to styles and plan a lot for this first matchup. for first round i have some hunches but am betting low.

    In definitely taking the rangers. Hopefully Igor starts. Healthy Kreider, Panarin, and Zibanajed leading the way offensively. They own Carolina and they know it. Carolina was bitching hard about this structure bc they drew the rangers.


    Pitt should win but you never know If Price gets hot in net. Id sooner bet that one game at a time.

    Islanders have a good coach, defensive system should be easy to remember.

    And the better goalie, do not trust Bob at all. I'm pretty confident about Islanders, the others I could change my mind.

    It's anyone's chance. What you saw before the break will be completely different. I would not be quick to take a lot of chalk. Should be interesting.
