    The Blues played 3 games just like everyone else. The only thing they did differently than everyone else was not win a single game. Let’s not feel bad for them.

    There should be a "just like everyone else". Blues and Avs earned the right to be exempt from this nonsense by their regular seasons. NHL really failed the top teams, they easily could have looked at more dynamic options like the NBA did.

    Don't blame the Stars for the Bruins going 0-3 in the RR.

    I don't blame the teams for anything, it's an NHL problem.

    Dude the Blues get to play the 9th place team in the Western conference. Why are you acting like they’re at a disadvantage? If it bothers them so much they should have tried mixing in a win.

    I’m just explaining that life has been made easy on St. Louis. If they f*** it up it’s on them and them only.

    For DAL/STL, how big was that 3-4 round robin game? I feel like STL May have matched up better with CGY

    Huge, I think VAN could’ve taken DAL out since it took a while for them to get into groove.

    DAL/CGY was a chaotic all over the map type of series. Markstrom would have probably been a different type of goalie compared to what Talbot was save for the G3 shutout.

    Here, I'll bump it for ya. I think Colorado will win a cup in the future, but they lack leadership, depth, defense, and goaltending. Losing 4 games in a row demonstrates lack of resiliency. Funny how Blues fans were saying these things before last year's playoffs, and now the Avs have been bounced in the 2nd round again.

    Still think Colorado doesn't need more veteran experience?

    Oh boy, how long have you been waiting to make this post?

    We passed the experienced Blues, pretty easily too.

    No, the Avs need to eliminate mistakes or the players who make them. That's it. The Avs played pretty well in games 5 and 6. They had good zone time, solid amount of shots on net, favorable xGF%. They just had a few idiots that kept turning the puck over. Personally, I'd fire Graves or Nemeth into the sun and give Byram, with his 0 playoff games experience, the nod. But hey, not my call.

    Playoff experience remains overrated. Either you are good enough or you aren't. This time, we weren't.
