I love the NHL, but the way they’ve done the lottery the last few years and other drama, it’s exhausting
I sort of feel that almost everything surrounding professional sports has gone over the top. Like the 2 hours of talking heads you get before every football game. Drives me crazy.

The way they formatted the playoffs and the draft for the NHL this year certainly didn’t win anyone over

They completely changed the format of the lottery because of the shortened season and a team that made the playoffs but lost after a round robin all had a 12 percent chance of winning the lottery.

So of course a team that made the playoffs but wasn’t good enough to say in get the first overall draft pick

For the past few weeks I've been having a bad pain in my hip. I finally called the doctor on Friday and she prescribed a muscle relaxant along with Aleve. Between them, I've spent almost all day today half asleep. The verdict is still out whether it's actually helping the hip.

That's pretty annoying, especially for the teams who actually deserved it

NHL Stanley cup finals! Tampa and Detroit have a sort of rivalry after the last few seasons not to mention their GM came back home here to GM for the only team he played with and was a captain for 5+ seasons

I’m gonna go with Dallas. A lot of people wrote them off and they haven’t won anything in a long time

They last won a cup (their only one in 89-90 which isn’t the longest drought but still) the rest of the NHL usually writes them off

How are you Sam?!
