The Haters Guide to the 2021 NHL Playoffs

NOTE: I was doing a good chunk of this video while on vacation, so I didn't have my mic on me to make changes to the script. Here's to hoping it hasn't aged poorly (thanks, Vegas).

But regardless, despite the delay, the NHL Playoffs will be commencing shortly. For the sixteen teams vying for the prize, the climb will be steep and the perils treacherous. These are the tales and tribulations of those who will step into the ring.

    Just the fact that Muzzin, who's been hurt for a portion of the series, had more goals than Marner and Matthews combined, should tell you how lifeless, and overall mediocre they played this series, especially game 7.

If you're a leafs fan, then grow up, smarten up, and start cheering for a real team instead of this blue and white garbage! Cheer for a competent team instead of this blight on the sport of hockey!

    I don’t think hockey has the hardest trophy to win I think the World Series trophy is the hardest due to the fact that there’s 162 games and not 82 and long pre-season and a long postseason it’s a grueling season that’s why it’s hard

  98. Ogreman -lll- •

    Ogreman -lll- •25 päivää sitten

    @Thedominator 1616 which doesn’t matter when you have 162 games to get in the playoffs. An extra 3 teams isn’t a big deal when you have twice the amount of games to get in

  99. Thedominator 1616

    Thedominator 161625 päivää sitten

    No, baseball is easier because of that. 162 games makes games meaningless and teams can take off on a 2 week stretch and still make the playoffs
