I'm kind of sad there will be no KHL games on RDS after all I couldn't wait to see Nizhny Novgorod Torpedo against Khabarovsk Amur Good old Canadiens-Leafs rivalry is awesome. Whoever wins the game isn't important I'm just happy hockey's back IN Montreal.
Feels so good that tanking is now useless with equal chances for all non playoff teams to get high picks.
Any non-playoff team can "win" the first pick but the chances are far from equal. The threat of tanking is going nowhere - just ask the NBA, where intentionally tanking is far more popular than the NHL.
I'm not one of those people who will always disagree with tanking regardless of the situation... but calling for it before the season even starts seems quite premature. Can we at least see if last year was a fluke before hoping to land a top 5 pick? It's a short season, anything can happen, and the same goes for the playoffs.
I think the Habs are simply a better team than the Leafs and will take this one 4-1.
