The sharks were also the best road team in the regular season and the worst home team out of the playoff teams, by a large margin. So I would hold off before declaring this series over.

0-2 for the Ducks
Was almost certain Nashville would win 2 home games back2back.

If the Kings, Ducks and Hawks get knocked out first round I'm going to be beyond happy and more excited to see playoff hockey in years.

that'd make things interesting to watch

but all those teams are teams that can flip a switch and win a series any time

there seems to be this fascination among Vancouver's media that if the Canucks get 1st overall...they should trade it to the Yotes for OEL

I don't understand that. Auston figures to be a franchise cornerstone and potential superstar, i know we've never had a Norris stud but you don't trade 1st overall for that.
OEL is good but he's not worth a 1st overall. I'm not even sold that OEL is Norris quality.
Every time i see mentions of that trade it just blows my mind how stupid the media in this city can get.

Trivia time:

Who is/are the highest player(s) the Canucks have ever drafted?

Spoiler!


Has a 1st overall player ever worn a Canucks jersey? Dunno the answer to this one.

We all know D.Sedin was a 1st pick overall, Burke made a deal with ATL not to draft the sedins

Jovo was a #1 overall pick traded for Bure

Ahh yes, forgot about Jovo. I remembered we had a high defenseman - looked up McCabe, but wrong guy!

OEL is a stud dman. But the idea to give up a franchise centre in Matthews when we have Henrik retiring soon, I rather keep Matthews.

And so far, it seems more likely that norris quality dman are drafted 2nd round and/or later rounds.

Would give up the 1st overall for a bunch of dmen way ahead of OEL lol. He's good but not Norris/1st overall worthy good.

lol go big or go home
if by some miracle, we get 1st overall and Yotes want their hometown boy, I'd do it for OEL+their first+Dylan Strome or Max Domi or Anthony Duclair

at the very least, nothing less than OEL+Dylan Strome

If Phoenix has the 3rd overall pick... I would trade it in a heartbeat for OEL and their 1st. Yah Matthews could be great. But having a stud #1 dman and Puljujarvi is too tempting.

Not that Phoenix would ever do that kind of trade anyways.

If you have the first overall pick, would you consider pulling a Brian Burke and trade for the 2nd and 3rd overall picks to get the two Finns?

Yes.

Though that's not at all what Brian Burke did.
