Great season of fantasy, boys. Bruins -- that was a hell of a final week. I went back and forth on Sunday trying to figure out if I should bench my goalies or not. It didn't end up making a difference, but a couple more goals against my tenders and you would have taken it.

Things change when you’re fighting the best guys in the world.

Congrats buddy. Another great season is over. The NHL playoffs are almost here, and MLB starts this week. Life is good.

Spoiler:
Cant wait to watch the Bruins beat up on the Leafs and send them golfing early again.

The Oilers and the Flames look prime for long playoff runs too. :tup:

As long as the B's can keep clear of falling below the Leafs, they should be fine. It'd be amazing if they can actually overtake Tampa with both their top defenseman and almost an entire line injured (Bergy being back mitigates this a LOT). Gonna be one hell of a first round!

THERE IS NO LOGICAL REASON TO DO THIS!!!!!IT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE!

2nd and 3rd in each division play each other. Division leader with most points plays second wild card. Division leader with second most points plays 1st wild card.

As for spoiler, probably TV deals and maybe travel. As for second, blame Americans and football. Serious.
