    That will be big juice as well. The layoff will hurt Montreal.

    Well no way I take Montreal.

    Vegas and Colorado are clearly in a tier above the Canadian teams.

    Montreal will take some money( they already have). Typical playoff team with a hot goalie. They will clog up the middle and frustrate the knights. They are similar to the wild but better.

    They are not better than the Wild.

    They beat the Maple Leafs by fluke injuries not to mention the Leafs always choke. The Jets are just a slow team and had their top center and top dman missing.

    The Knights have the better depth, better coaching, better top players, better defense. The only advantage Montreal has is Price.

    Highest priced series line of the whole NHL playoffs so far? -450? I think so.

    Even Price being an advantage isn't necessarily true. Fleury near the top all-time playoff wins by goalies. He's no slouch. Price might only be better by a miniscule margin at this point. I'm not sure about the defense though, as I think Montreal is just as good as Vegas if not better. Certainly, DeBoer has a history of success as coach.

    The layoff is the biggest issue for the habs. One week between a game. That's too long and will probably ruin all the good mojo they had. They can compete here. Colorado was soft and that goalie was awful.

    The defense isn't close. The Knights have 4 number 1 pairing defensemen. The Habs have 2.

    All 4 worse seeds just advanced last round. Wonder last time that happened in Quarters throughout history?

    Vegas will collapse. Books are drooling about how much juice they are going to collect off Vegas bettors

    I'm talking about what I see with my eyes watching the games as a former player. No doubt the Knights have far more talent up front. I'm not questioning that.

    The only question is how many games can Price steal? I anticipate every game being about 40-15 shot advantage Vegas.

    People do realize Montreal was the 18th best team this year right? Vegas tied for 1st.

    Montreal has gotten so lucky it isn't funny. With injuries and playing bad goalies.

    Montreal is barely a playoff team, This is the biggest series price for the 3rd round in NHL history

    I have watched many games of both teams this year. Vegas is in another league compared to Montreal.

    The Canadian divison is atrocious.

    Heís going to steal the whole series. Great goalie and veteran leadership who are going to come in and be pissed they are looked at as huge underdogs.

    They are huge underdogs for a reason. They aren't really a playoff team and Vegas is the best team in the league on paper.

    Paper doesnít produce cups. No excuses after Vegas goes down though ok?
