I'm not upset about it. The the Caps and Bruins can beat the crap out of each other.

How much is Boston kicking themselves for letting Chara walk now?

He really is a piece of crap but I wish we got him instead of Zajac and Palmieri
- Cptmjl


Agreed. Would have liked to have seen him with Barzal ...although I'm not sure he would have been enough to unseat Leo

I'm going out on a limb and predicting Marchand won't be licking anyone.

I'm hoping he tongues Tom Wilson's nose and they both end up in Covid protocol

Let's .hope. He had 3 sog tonight, but was rather unnoticeable. These trades can ONLY be judged on their playoff impact in a season like this

Good luck, boys. I wanted the Islanders purely because Boston is a bad matchup for us and because I want to watch Boston/Washington kill each other.

Guys like Zajac have killed the Penguins over his career so I'd bet that translates to the playoffs

You guys got a good team, Barzal is fun to watch. Should be a good series.

Trotz: Varlamov had a little strain, he could have finished, let's not take any chances.

Should be fun. I really have no feel for how this one is going to play out.

Wonder how the game between the bruins and caps will be? Do they both play it safe or start getting after it as they start the playoff on Sat

The game means nothing so it’s probably taxi squad types, no prime players. 3rd goalies.

Not sure, but I think they re-seed after the divisional winners are determined, so point total could possibly determine home ice and opponents in the last two rounds. But it's so speculative that I tend to agree with you that teams won't want to risk injury to their top players.

Don’t the Caps have the tiebreak with more wins regardless of the result tomorrow? Duh, nevermind. Last 2 rounds you said.

I wanted Palmieri as well. I thought he was a better fit this team. I am not ready to say that the trade was a bust. I was not sold on Halls attitude.

Lets see what the playoffs bring. Hopefully Varly is okay.
