If they end up missing the playoffs by a point or two I will be a bit sad the season didn't just fall apart, because MacKinnon would have been a scary forward to pair with John and worth more than coming shy of the playoffs.
Mario Lemieux missed the playoffs his first four years. Stamkos will miss the playoffs, again, this year. It takes a team. That's where the main board is a disaster, preys on reactive in-the-moment nonsense based on the day's highlights and slick shoot out moves...little logic there.

Tavares is a star, the hockey world knows this. And he's getting better and better.
