There’s a fair bit of variance to go around in this chart, but a few similarities as well.
A few things to note:
- Sunil knows something we all don’t, which can be the only reason he’s going for both Dallas and the New York Islanders in their series.
- Everybody likes Tampa Bay, and for good reason.
- I’ve got Toronto over Boston. Either way, the internet is going to be insufferable no matter who wins that series.
- Most have selected the Blues, Flames, Golden Knights, Predators and Hurricanes to take their round one series.
