It’s eulogy nation on this week’s Skate in the Crease.
This week we discuss the lost hopes and dreams of many a fan as we eulogize the hockey teams eliminated from the playoff race. We say goodbye to the hapless Buffalo Sabres. We say goodbye to the aging Sedin Twins and the Vancouver Canucks. We say goodbye to the tragic fall of the Ottawa Senators and the cost-cutting Eugene Melnyk. We say goodbye to the once assumed playoff team of the Detroit Red Wings and cry. We say goodbye to the previously Subban and pre-injured Price led Montreal Canadiens. We say goodbye, quite happily, to the bandwagon that is the Chicago Blackhawks. We say goodbye to the Chiarelli insanity show that is the Edmonton Oilers. Despite all of the farewells, we offer up some hope for each of these teams.
We end the episode by going over the playoff race and giving our hot takes on the future success of Colorado and the fate of the Calgary Flames.
