I’m just happy the Canes are gone

Enjoy fourth place.

Kidding. In all seriousness, it’s awesome to see non-traditional hockey markets like Carolina go on deep playoff runs! It’s good for the game, from getting kids interested to keeping fans around for years to come.

But can their fans tone it back? From the slaps, to the crying about Don Cherry, to the middle fingers on every national broadcast, I surely won’t miss that this season.

They’ve got some serious talent on the Canes roster, but they will need Aho to be a difference maker, their defence will have to toughen up a bit and their goaltending is as big of a wildcard as you’ll see in the league.

Either way, an 11 day break after the ECF isn’t going to do Boston any good. But will they get swept?
