I wasn't questioning your hockey knowledge and I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with anything you said since I'm waiting to see how each of them handles the playoffs before forming a final opinion, but the bolded words don't suggest opinion. The underlined ones do.
It is fine and dandy to disagree with someone and be very firm in that stance, but to flat out say that something won't be done, like you did in the first sentence, essentially stifles any back and forth that might be had. Either that or it forces the other side to swing to the far opposite end of the spectrum to try to prove why something might actually happen. Simplying adding words such as 'likely' imply a willingness to continue discussion of a subject. At least that's how I interpret the written word.
