Montreal completes the sweep.

Jets looked like trash. Only guy that showed up was Helly for the elimination game.

I should feel bad that the Oilers were swept by a team who in turn got swept by a Habs team that realistically isn't going to win the Cup or even get to the Final. However, since Jets' fans have shown themselves to be classless whiners in the wake of the Scheifele hit and suspension, I will enjoy the flowing of their tears.

Scheifele has to sit out the season opener next year doesn't he? Bummer

Oilers got swept by a team who got swept by a team that’s going to get swept by an actually good team.

Jets had a lead for under 20 minutes worth of hockey across 8 playoff games.

Boy did we choke.

Someone get Holland to take back his wish to be like the Jets.

Let's look at the Tampa Bay Playoffs over the past ten years - this stuff happens guys - you know, luck is a thing. Oilers make it to Western Conf Finals next year, I will bet anyone willing to take me up on it.

The Oilers sure have been unlucky the last 20 years!

Hey, if all else had stayed the same and the Isles beat the Bruins, then Oilers would have played winner of Tampa/Carolina!

The Jets/Habs series to me came down to a couple of things for me:

- Jets played an extremely button down, take no chances offensively, very defensive style. They were so worried about McD and Leon that as soon as they remotely lost control of the puck, the forwards immediately started heading back. They abandoned that completely against the Habs. They showed clips last night of the difference in how they played and it was night and day different.

- Jets got all the breaks in the Oilers series. Oilers were the ones hitting posts/cross bars and the pucks going out while the Jets were post/cross bar in. This time it was the Jets hitting them and going out while the Habs were in.

-Jets relied on a physical, clutch and grab, dmen get away with murder against the Oilers style. They went up against a Habs team that plays that even more and gets away with more.

- Jets defense in my opinion had some big dmen that are primary 3rd pairing guys that played over their heads in the Oilers series hat they are 3rd pairing dmen in the Habs. Habs have a top 4 that is probably 2 very good second pairings on any team that are big and nasty.

- Losing Schiefele was a massive loss. Stupid play.

- I thought the Jets best players played extremely well in the Oilers series and while I am sure the Habs played a part in that, I thought the Jets players play poorly. Wheeler wasn't that great. Ehlers, Connors were excellent against the Oilers, invisible against the Habs. I thought Dubois was OK in the Oilers series, was lousy against the Habs. Morrissey was great in the Oilers series, wasn't that great against the habs.

- Jets got out goaled. Helleybuyck stood on his head in the Oilers series, I thought he was good, not great in the Habs series.


It will be interesting to see what the Jets do with all that supposed depth at forward because I think their defense sucks.

Hard to say if the Habs get dominated. I wouldn't have predicted the Habs and Jets in the division final, so that didn't really go according to script. Habs need to be denied the Cup, though...

The Habs are coming out of the weakest division and will be facing a team that truly could contend for a Cup in either the VGK or Avs. They should be crushed hard. Of course, this doesn't say much good about the Oil or Laffs for not even making it to the division final, but there it is.

Not often that the worst and second worst team in the Stanley Cup playoffs get to play each other in the 2nd round. One of them had to win, but no matter who won, they'd still suck.

Montreal is a bug in the windshield of any of the remaining teams unless Carey Price plays ridiculously good for the entire series. I predict the next round also to be a short one.

If the Oilers were advancing to the 3rd round, we'd be pretty pumped and wouldn't worry too much about getting smoked in round 3. Hope the Habs are eliminated, otherwise I don't have a dog in this race.

Definitely the team we should be trying to emulate.

Not even scoring effects in here to excuse the Jets. Jets were tied or trailing the entire playoffs outside of 19 minutes of hockey.

Well Gary polishes Jacob's boots so I'm surprised Boston got a fine, but it provides a glimpse how little thinking goes on with these decisions, policy seems different day to day, its schizophrenic, not the way a league is supposed to run.

Some guys need replacing, starting with Campbell and Parrot.

Feel bad for McKinnon, the NHL isn't calling sticks to the hands anymore, totally abandoned the concept, skilled guys trying to skate up the ice with the puck are getting their arms and hands wacked non-stop, game has devolved into dump and chase, throw it at the net and hope it goes in, different game, Colin Campbell 1970's hot-tub-time-machine.

When a guy like McKinnon can't stand out in a game, you know game has turned to crap.

Feel bad for McKinnon, the NHL isn't calling sticks to the hands anymore, totally abandoned the concept, skilled guys trying to skate up the ice with the puck are getting their arms and hands wacked non-stop, game has devolved into dump and chase, throw it at the net and hope it goes in, different game, Colin Campbell 1970's hot-tub-time-machine.

When a guy like McKinnon can't stand out in a game, you know game has turned to crap.


Best playoff performer ever needs to fight through that stuff. That's why he's the best. Takes it to 11 every playoff game.

If you're talking about McKinnon, he ain't able to get it done, he takes it to 11 but Vegas subtracts 6.

Just going by what Avs fans say. Nate is the best because he can handle the difficulty of playoffs. Not like a fairy boy like McDavid. Nate's built for fighting through that stuff like a champ.

Man, Avs really don't want to win this game.. two X-large Pepperoni Pizzas tossed up to turn a 2-0 lead into 2-2.. wow.

Best playoff performer all time with 3 pointless games in 3 losses confused4

Damn Mark Stone is good. Dude steals a puck at least once a shift.

I was hoping the Avs win, tired of Vegas, hate deBoer... that was one AAA Class CHOKE by the Avalanche.. GOATS of the game.. Burachowski, and Landeskog, should never have gone to OT.

And Avs coach keeps his best players on the bench for the 1st shift of OT.. good work buddy.. out coached himself.

I think its over.

If the Oilers are UFA shopping, I hope they leave Saad on the shelf, ineffective, hope we can find better.

Saad is probably on the option list if Nuge walks. Saad coming off a $6 million contract. I wonder what the ask would be there to come to Edmonton?

Probably 6.5/2. Unless he really believes in the plan, then it's 6.5/3

What a great sign that would be for Saad to be not only excited for years 1 and 2 of that deal, but he's really REALLY excited for year 3.

Better make it 7Mx3 because of how good he makes us all feel.

That would make me very, very saad actually.

I do think he might be somewhat over-rated...he always puts up some points, but he's a complimentary guy at best in the top six. I'd take him on the team, but I wouldn't want to see a lot of money thrown at him. He's no Nuge replacement.

I would have been interested for around 4-5M I think. But, his 7 goals in these playoffs now, one of the few Avs that has done something in this series outside the 1st game, I think he's priced us out.

He might get the Pisani bump! Would really help if he made it another round or two though...

Dobson, who was picked right after Bouch, has been pretty useful for the Islanders in the playoffs.

Time to do something with this Bouch lad.

Thought the exact same thing, Dobson looks good, F this "over ripening" crap.. play Bouchard..
Can't always be crashing your cap space by signing high priced UFA's or trading prospects and draft picks to fill holes.. maximize the use of your prospects on ELC's, at least give them a serious look.

Lots of teams prospects are contributing after +2 draft year .

I'd even see how Holloway is before you drain the cap space on a mediocre LW UFA, although I think they need two new LW's for the top 6, Holloway could be one, the other a UFA.

Wish Lavoie had NHL wheels.. hope he concentrates on it this summer, if he had decent speed, together with his shot, he'd be a serious contender for a spot ..

We can now conclude

Eberle > Hall >>> Nuge

We f'd up!

And of course Pageau is better than all these bums combined ;)

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.
