The NHL playoffs are off and running and they’ve already brought plenty of surprises. The eventual winner of the Stanley Cup is still far from being determined, but it clearly won’t be an easy path as teams turn up their emotion and energy—just ask the Tampa Bay Lightning. For those outside of the playoff chase there is the NHL Entry Draft to look forward to now that the lottery balls have been counted. The New Jersey Devils will have the top pick once again, but will they decide to use it or cash it in for an even bigger package of assets?
With the playoffs in full swing it’s time to run another mailbag. We’ll be answering as many questions as we can this weekend. You can submit your query by using #PHRMailbag on Twitter or by leaving a comment down below.
If you missed the last mailbag you can find it right here. Our Brian La Rose tackled all of your questions including a look at some of the top prospects outside of Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko in the 2019 draft, the New York Rangers rebuild and the Adam Fox situation. Make sure to submit your question early so we can include it.
