Two predictions for next year ...
1. The NHL imposes the Lightning rule that salary caps do count in the playoffs. Or some change so what happened this year doesn't happen again.
2. Lightning don't make it past the second round with a non-covid season and having to stay under the cap

Coming from the NFL thread I don;t think you should open up a new thread every year...makes it easier to search around for things people post years later

Whilst I agree that they're a 1/3 of a contender with those two .... Vas really wasn't tested and wasn't a big factor in the Finals. Lightning could've won that with Andersen (too soon)!

Money!
Also, keep in mind they're 20 mill over the cap so people have to go!

This is why a new one is done. Any newbee can't see how bad my last year predictions are!

As a goalie myself having played (and still playing) the position for 30 years, i'm pretty familiar with multiple eras of goalie gear. Price is listed at 6'3" 219lbs and Vasy is listed also at 6'3" and 6lbs heavier at 225lbs. After seeing this pic, I'm just shocked at the size difference in gear size between both tendy's. Vasy's chesty looks absolutely absurd, almost like a box lacrosse goalie. The sleight height difference I can understand because of different skates and different runners on the skates, but the size of the chesty has me shaking my head. Either Price is playing with some seriously undersized gear, or Vasy is playing with an illegal size c/a. I know all gear gets checked for size confirmation, but damn. It's a miracle the Habs managed to even get 8 pucks past Vasy in this series.

He looks unbelievably broad. Same in this photo at this link: https://www.nhl.com/news/tampa-bay-lightning-andrei-vasilevskiy-wins-conn-smythe-trophy/c-325597644

However, in other photos he doesn't look to be oversized. Wonder if he put on about 25-50 lbs recently?

Covid + eating like a champion!

His chest protector almost looks loose... which in theory would really deaden any shot and reduce rebounds. Kinda like throwing a ball at a hanging blanket.

Unfortunately vasi had to wear whatever equipment they had in the shed. Buying him new stuff wasn't in the budget.

Get it, because they were so far over the cap?

Hah!
