I've placed a little bet to make the upcoming play-offs even more exiting to follow.

Not much of a stake but will add to the drama for me.

Here's the full list of the contenders odds (at least the realistic ones) to win the cup.

I think Washington, Toronto and Edmonton are really overlooked by the bookies and having in mind the high odds.. every of those 3 could well worth a shot...even a team like Dallas.

What's your thoughts on it Dustin?

Hahahaha, oh sharpe, you had to make that dig, didn't ya? 😭😂😜

I think it's gonna be the Avs or Lightning. The Lightning have struggled the last few weeks, but they're primed to get it together in time for playoffs. Edmonton and Toronto are just chokers. I don't feel like they're primed up to make a run at anything long-term. Second-round playoff exits for the both of them. Avs, well they're just so superior that I find it hard for a team to take 4 of 7 from them in a series. Just a really well-rounded team.

Yeah.. all around valid points there Dustin.

I can't write off Lighting of course...but just don't think they're so flashy this season..so maybe they could raise there level again before the play-offs..but I just don't have the feel they'd going to win 3rd time in a row in this so even league...if that make sense.

Avalanche - no doubt they are so talented and attractive to watch... maybe the best team in the league.. but still they have to convince me... when it's about play-offs.

I totally agree with what you're saying about Maple Leafs and Oilers... both teams extremely talented in attack but very suspicious when it comes to defending and goalkeeping... but it would be the most enjoyable final series ever...isn't it..😉..although quite unlikely.

Crazy play-offs this season...I think more exciting than ever!

7of the 8 matchups have been tied at 2-2 and only Colorado who won their series easily...but Nashvile hasn't been in a great form entering the postseason anyway....so not sure Avalanche wouldn't be a bit over confident entering the next round.

I'm certainly excited about Kings chances...to reach next stage..but generally it's been a great watch and hihg scores all over...what's your thoughts on it Dustin?

I'm very interested in this first round. There's a ton of Game 7's coming, and I'm going to be really excited to see how it shakes out. Colorado still has to be the team to beat. I think they'll slide to the Conference Finals no problem.

Here's hoping the Oilers and Leafs lose! I've been watching a lot of the Tampa and Toronto series, and it's been very, very good hockey. Detroit is really close to Toronto, so I grew up watching Hockey Night in Canada from the Windsor CBC station. That meant I watched a lot of Leafs in my youth. I have no real animosity toward them, but their fans are going to be hard to listen to if they win a Cup, so I hope they lose just for that.

Battle of Alberta starts tomorrow night with the Calgary Flames vs the Edmonton Oilers . I cant wait, this whole province goes into rivalry mode with the 2 cities being only a 3 hour drive away from each other. If the flames dont step up their game the Oilers will bury them. I dont think Edmontons goaltending can do the same that Dallas had wow. Not many goalies out there that can put on the kind of show that Dallas's had the other night.

So, I hate Ken Holland for what he ended up doing to my Red Wings. He had success with the team, but it was largely based on the work of Scotty Bowman and having no salary cap to bring in players like Brett Hull and Luc Robitaille, while having a player like Hasek basically say the only place he'd be traded to is Detroit. Once the cap came into place and the Hall of Fame players left, it was up to him to keep it going, and those years of dumb trades hurt us.

Because of that, GO FLAMES! I think that's going to be a lot of fun to watch. Both crowds are going to really be into it. If a Canadian team is to win a Cup next, I really want it to be Calgary or Ottawa (who're years away).

Probably most of the neutrals want to see Avalanche - Oilers matchup in the Western Final and I don't blame them for that but I still hope Flames can turn around their series.

And Lightning once again raised their game for the play-offs...could anybody stop them really!?!

For me it would be a bit weird in this so tied league (at least in regular season) one team to win the cup for a third straight time.

WaroftheGods, what happened with the Flames? Now that muttonhead Ken Holland is one step closer to the Finals. I really hope the Avalanche (whom I hate due to the feud days) knocks them out.
