Tampa Bay Lightning aside, shit is bunched up as fok in the east. All the rest of the playoff teams are within 3 points of each other.

We Leafs fans have been making our playoff plans from day 1 but they are one bad week from being right out of it.

:fok:

Maple Leafs acquire defenceman Muzzin in trade with Kings

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired defenceman Jake Muzzin from the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night for a first-round pick and two prospects, bolstering their blue line with a Stanley Cup-winning veteran.


Okay, okay. So it's a pick that will probably be like mid 20's and two prospects who are not generally even discussed when looking at the organization's future - for a top 4 defenceman with a year and a half of control.

Works for me.

If the playoffs started RIGHT NOW, The Tampa Bay Lightning would play the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round.

Wouldn't that be a fine how-do-you-do?

I don't think the playoffs are going to be as smooth sailing for the Lightning as the regular season has been. I just don't.


Secondary thought: one should not sleep on the Penguins. I say that not just because of today's deal but the composition of the roster in general.

The Penguins ---> they're still here.
