    2020 NHL Playoffs Thread: Hubs: Blame America!

    Well boys, it's just about time for the return of the NHL! We're finally about to get real hockey after about 4 months!

    For those who forget, the Eastern Conference will be playing their games in Toronto. The Western Conference will be playing their games in Edmonton. The Stanley Cup Finals will be played in Edmonton.

    Teams will be heading to the hubs this weekend. Each team will get 1 exhibition game prior. Most of those games will be broadcasted in the US on NBCSN/NHLN.

    Then, the start of the playoffs with the top 4 in each conference playing Round Robin games to determine their seeding. Meanwhile, the next 8 (5-12) will be playing best-of-5 series to move on to the conference quarterfinals. All these games will be on NBCSN/NHLN/USA in the States. Dunno about Canada. After each round, teams will be re-seeded.

    Exhibition:


    Opening round/round robin:


    Day 1/2 TV schedule:



    Also, this begins the prediction portion of our lives! For the opening round, pick your series winner/games as normal. Also, pick the order for the Top 4 seeds in each conference!

    Your going to get real sick of hearing Davy Jones say, "Release the Kraken!" at their home games.

    Jerseys look awesome though.

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    Carolina Hurricanes All-Star defenseman Dougie Hamilton didn't practice Thursday and his status is unclear as the team prepares for the NHL's return to play next week.

    The team's website reported Wednesday that Hamilton left that day's practice early "in some visible discomfort." Asked about Hamilton not practicing Thursday, coach Rod Brind'Amour said only that Hamilton is "unfit to play at this moment" and offered no specifics, as the league has prohibited teams from disclosing whether a player is injured or ill.

    If they do it like the Caps' "Unleash the Fury" bit, the fans will never tire of it. I'm sure other teams do similar things and Release the Kraken is pretty perfect for that type of stuff.

    (Caps have a short video+chant that gets the fans pumped near the end of the game, usually reserved for close games, to try to spark the team for a GWG/Comeback/Dagger Goal)

    Crawford, who hasn't participated in your training camp at all, is still listed on the 31-man roster oddly enough
