I gotta say, as much as I hate the B's, they have one of the great rosters of my lifetime. Pastrnak, Bergeron, oldballs Chara, Marchand, Rask (and Halak as the backup even though he posted better regular-season numbers.) I mean fok.
I rewatched the first three episodes of S1. The whole show was much edgier back then. It looked like ass (tons of harsh artificial lighting) but it was full of c-words and boobies and unexpected gore. Good times.
It does feel like D&D had better things to do than finish GoT properly. 🤷♂️
I'm fine with the outcomes, but Jesus fuck did they take massive shortcuts. There was easily two full seasons' worth of material in S8.
