    If the season resumes, we're looking at a Flames/Jets play-in series. So who do you think holds the edge?

    Here's my take:

    Goaltending - No question, Winnipeg. Hellebuyck > Rittich/Talbot.

    Defence - Without a doubt, Calgary. The Flames are deeper from top to bottom.

    Forwards - Tie. Both teams have elite high end skill and solid all around depth.

    Coaching - Winnipeg. Both Maurice and Ward are experienced coaches, but Maurice has been a Head Coach for most of his career whereas Ward has primarily been an Assistant.

    Overall, I think it'll be a good series. I give the slight edge to Winnipeg however, I think they're just a little bit bigger and faster.

    Thoughts?

    I personally disagree on Forwards. I think their top end guys overall have a higher peak, and have better depth overall but that's just my two cents.

    I also think their F group is better, especially if Little is healthy again. This is a group that 2 years ago made the 3rd rnd, and gave the Blues a good push in the 1st rnd last year.

    We lose because it’s the flames.

    3 game series?

    It all depends on a hot goalie.

    The Jets are f***ing terrible but I just don't trust us coming out of a long break

    I think Ehlers and the teams overall speed is going to piece us up if I am being honest. Who knows though.

    This is going to be fun and probably will have nothing to do with how either team played in the regular season

    Same can be said for all the mini play in series. I’m just going to watch and enjoy. No expectations for anyone

    Pond hockey incoming...

    It’ll be fun and I’m excited. I feel like loosing will sting significantly less but winning will only feel slightly less exciting and that’s mostly because 17th ave isn’t exactly going to be a hot spot (hopefully not anyway)

    Unless our top guys are really lighting things up, their Forward group is likely better. They’ve got some good size, speed and skill. Will be a fun series regardless, I really miss sports.

    Who is ready to see Hanifin-Hamonic back together game 1?

    I want to believe, Gaudreau was finally getting going, Hanifin-Andersson were playing well, Rittich has some time off and usually plays better with rest, but who knows in a 5 game series.

    I'm kind of excited hockey is back, but will be really odd with no fans and neutral sites.. Still think they should cancel the season. As for the series, I think we match up well with the Jets, but man it's going to be some brutal hockey probably.

    I know the Hanifin Hamonic comment is a joke but... man it wouldn't surprise me with Ward not changing it until he was literally forced to.

    Winnipegs forward depth takes it...a bigger question is for the play in round do we get the playoff Bennett or the regular season Bennett?

    Hope he has been growing out that playoff beard.

    He'll likely be healthy. I really hope he doesn't play though (if he plays even 1 game, we have to protect him in the expansion draft, where if he doesn't play, he can't be picked allowing us to protect another d-man).

    If there are 2 or 3 alphabet lottery balls I wouldn’t mind losing this series for a 25% shot at a franchise player

    I think it's still single digit probability for the playoff teams (between 1-6%) but yes there is a small chance.

    Would be nice to win the lottery after the Flames go out three straight. (Let's face it, they're not great after long breaks)

    The Jets have the league worst xGF% (by a country mile), I fully expect the Flames to scrub it up and make them look like a contender.

    If those two are back I’m throwing stuff. Had ptsd from all the bitching I had to do about how awful they were.

    This team was terribly mediocre and inconsistent from the net out all year. I don’t expect much this post season (if it happens). Hopefully I eat crow however.

    You could say the same exact thing for the Jets this season
