    It sucks, but they need to go ahead and officially announce their season is kaput. Time is not on their side.

    Supposedly the league is committed to having the playoffs. I want to believe that they've figured out a way to do that safely, but I'm skeptical.

    So it looks like the playoffs are happening. And my hometown of Edmonton is a front runner to host.

    And Draisaitl won the Art Ross.

    I honestly think it's almost 100% guaranteed to be Vegas and Toronto, but we'll see.

    The NHL likely should put both hubs in Canada based on COVID risk alone, but they apparently really like the ability to bubble the players in Vegas. Plus I think it's an easier sell to the NHLPA.

    My least favorite suggestion of the possible names is the one they chose, typical. Dumb name, generic logo, hard pass on me buying that jersey.

    Their uniforms, colors, and logos are okay but they picked the most flavor-of-the-moment, gimmicky name of the bunch.

    I never understood how Kraken became the odds-on favourite to begin with. Has there been an explosion in giant squid interest in the United States that I haven't been aware of?

    I don't know what to expect, honestly. The Canucks at the start of the play-in round look like a different team than at the beginning of the regular season, and even at their last game before the pandemic. We have Toffoli now, Ferland and Roussel are back, and Virtanen and Eriksson are likely sitting in the press box. Anything can happen with this team.

    Their Twitter bio would be hilarious if it didn't make me nervous.

    Currently watching Islanders vs Panthers. Islanders dominating play halfway through first and up 1-0.

    Blackhawks dominating the Oilers 6-2 going into the 3rd.
    This pleases me, but I am surprised.

    Felt like Islanders controlled much of the game despite only winning 2-1.

    The Oilers Foundation 50/50 raffle got to $5.4 million tonight. It broke records.

    Panthers showed some life. Islanders still lead series 2-1.

    Petterson has this insane hybrid slapshot/onetimer that's unbelievable to see in action.

    I hear that the field is wide open in the NHL Bubble. If that's the case, I am rooting for a Stanley Cup finals similar to 2018 where both teams are looking for their first. I watched the last two Stanley Cups for that reason alone.
