    Lines aren't confirmed yet, no word yet on who the Pens will go with.

    Bold prediction (not):

    those forward lines, as constituted, will blow.

    It's Julien's achilles heal. Load up the first line and have no depth of scoring after that.

    Domi will be off the 4th line quickly. Weise will be in the press box. But he won't go far enough with changes to the line combos.

    Domi should Center that 3rd line.

    He's had chemistry with Both Byron and Lehkonen... Especially Byron.

    But we can't have KK on the 4th, it would kill his confidence.

    Hmm...

    Last game Domi (18.5min), Weal (16.5min) and Weise (12.5min) played more than KK (13.5min), Lehk (11.5min) and Byron (10.5min). So Domi is already centering what Claude consider a "2B" line and KK is already centering the 4th. :dunno:

    Feels like tomorrow will be a spectacular failure. And not even anything remotely entertaining. I predict a game that will suck the life out of anyone watching it.
    The only bright spot might be Price and perhaps Suzuki.

    Weal getting over 16 minutes of ice time is very bothersome. What do you accomplish him giving him all that ice time and opportunity? He hasnt reached double goals yet in a season while in the NHL.

    Both Eastern Canadian teams are in deep. Toronto better be prepared to pay the price against Columbus because they will force them to play a North South game. Not a good match-up for them. As far as our series goes a sweep won't astonish too many people. I do agree with you ugly hockey coming up.

    Hey look!!! A GDT on August 1st. I think it's BC day also.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Habs score first and take the crowd out of...oh wait! Never mind.

    Usually when the playoffs are on the verge of starting I am all fired up but knowing that the Habs didn't make the playoffs legitimately takes the sail out of everything.

    I still contend that this is the worst team in NHL history to make the playoffs. Its embarrassing actually.

    They haven’t made the playoffs, to qualify they would need to beat the Pens.

    They’re however, probably the worst team in history to ever qualify for the play-ins

    So this is floating around Twitter:

    20200801_071340.jpg

    It's victory probabilities from various prediction models. We win 3 out of 6 times and get 50/50 in one other. Pens win 2/6 models, but get 60%+ chance in both.

    Don't see Montreal winning this one at all, but they seem to have a better chance than most think.

    Basically, it boils down to Montreal being a good 5 on 5 team, and Pens specialty teams not being that much better than Montreal's. Goaltending is also in Montreal's favor.

    The last 6 results between the teams.

    Montreal won 4-1, lost 4-1, and lost 3-2 in OT this season. Last season, they won 5-1, lost 5-1 and won in a shootout 4-3, so 2-2-2 essentially.

    However, it should be noted Pens have had a ton of injuries over the last 2 seasons. They are healthy now.

    I think we get swept or at best win one game.

    Looking forward to seeing Suzuki and Kotkaniemi play.

    I think Domi should play LW with Danault and Gallagher.

    Tatar drops down to play with Suzuki.

    Drouin drops down to play with Kotkaniemi.

    And Byron or Lehkonen drop down to play with Weise and Weal.

    Or get Evans in for Weise.

    Anyways, expect Pens to win 4-1.

    it would be worth watching if this team would play kids like Evans and Fleury.

    With zero ticket revenue what is the motive for the NHL to so desperate want to play? How are they generating legitimate revenue with zero fans in attendance?
