Nick and Connor preview the 2017 Eastern Conference and Western Conference Finals, as well as discuss the failure of the Washington Capitals in detail. More trophy predictions are made and draft lottery’s are awful.

Also discussed, the Los Angeles Kings’ new head coach (John Stevens) and other coaching situations around the league, as well as the Vezina, Norris and Lady Byng trophy finalists. Of note, if Nick ever actually went outside, he would know that it was actually warmer in Massachusetts on Monday than it was in South Carolina. Minor details.

Selke Trophy and Calder Trophy winners are predicted based on the finalists.
After trying to predict the outcome of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs last year, Nick and Connor decided to give it a go again this year with Frank joining the mix (Colby would’ve made it too if he didn’t ghost us). That’s right, this episode largely ignores the fact that we’re shutting down our full-time status and instead recaps our horrible 2016-2017 season predictions and previews the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Nice.
