With that being said it, let's get into my top five sleepers for the energy any child restarts.
Number five is the Florida Panthers.
The Florida Panthers are a team dad, a really underperformed in the regular season and with their offseason additions and since state a big one.
Sergei Bobrovsky, now bobrovsky.
I'll very your goalie.
I'm very excited.
See how he plays in the playoffs? We've already seen, though, Uh, he does play well in the clips.
We all know that, and their first round series will be against the New York Islanders.
And, by the way, the New York Islanders.
They have been practically limping into the Serie.
They have lost seven straight games going into the Hyatt just and a will be desperate to write that ship.
And, uh, while the Florida Panthers have been too respectable for foreign to under last 10 they have won their like they won their last two games up before the pause in play.
Now the Lightning.
You never know the Lightning are their next round opponent.
Possibly if they do beat the Islanders and you never know because my Brosque maybe prob Bob has one more upset in his ****nal.
And by the way, uh, you got my Kaufman.
Ah, you're adding him to our already loaded young core.
And Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville is now in Florida.
I know Isaac Settlements gonna love this one.
And for all the right reasons as well, because I think that the Florida Panthers are a hell of a sleeper heading into the center Jove, restarts and even bigger sleeper in the Winnipeg Jets.
I believe the Winnipeg Jets, Connor Hell, Buck has been playing very world this year.
So got Patrick Line a So God, Blake roller.
You still got a loaded offensive core.
The defense of court.
The defense is the only thing I would worry about if I were them.
But they are looking pretty good this year.
And if you want to know their goal differential there, the nine seed and they have a plus 13 goal differential.
Terms of Gold's allow their fifth in their conference there, the fifth best defense in the conference.
So it's not nearly as bad when you go to goals for they are then a being seventh.
So is a pretty balanced attack from the Winnipeg Jets and if they get hot, you never know.
I would wash out because the Jets could be really making a big run.
From what I hear, that article number three is National Press.
The natural predators.
They've been to the Stanley Cup final that have Stanley Cup playoff experience.
I think it would be fair toe.
Put them on this list.
It would be very unfair, actually, If I didn't there now, you might be saying, Jack, why are the natural predators even a sleeper? And that's a great question in my answer to you is yes, there the number six seed.
When you look at in the their number city, they only have 78 points.
That's that's a low amount and the 60 they will be playing in the first round.
The qualifying round there will not be playing in a round robin, so and I do believe the National Predators can get by their opponent, which ends up being Ah, what's called the Arizona Coyotes, Arizona Coyotes argued, seem to don't get me wrong.
They all have the second best defense in Western Conference in terms of colds allowed, but their offense is really lacking.
It is actually very far down on that list.
If I had to listen.
123456789 10 11 Throw.
It is 1/12 worst offensive attack in the league, so predators should be able to do quite well in net.
And there they've had to what they have.
Court ordered 15 on the year.
Terms of their goal differential there on Leah minus two is not bad for being too ***y in their last 10.
There were six story and one day and wonder last three heading into hiatus.
And I do value a lot of, you know, Ah, good streak heading into the break because that does give you a good position heading out of the break and something you can build on and think about.
Think about this way.
Yes, I we can do it.
We can't get through.
And I think the Predators have a lot to build on and a lot of stuff to be so used to their advantage in their first round opponent against Arizona Coyotes, and they will be able to wreak some havoc when there comes to getting into the deeper and lighter rounds off Stanley Cup playoffs.
Speaking of which, number two is the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the reason why they're number two they are not.
Number one is because of the team you'll see next.
And I think that the way they've been hated on ah, there will justify their number one pick.
Toronto Maple Leafs, though, And for the moment that Toronto may, please are one.
The best teams in the NHL don't want to look it, by the way they are bringing their the eighth seed.
And the reason why is because of their defense.
The event is terrible.
So have the 12th worst defense in the Eastern Conference.
And they do whatever.
They only have a plus 11 goal differential.
They're five and five in their last 10 when it comes to shoot outs there, as you source as they call their one and five Sorry.
Yeah, that yet there is just does a commentary in their halfway decent on the on the road.
They are technically 18 and 18 on the road, so I mean, that's a pretty respectable record.
Then when you look at the number one, but then you look at their goal differential.
But then you look at the number one team, which I'm gonna put up here, and this will blow you away.
We all knew the number one team, the number once, Liber had any flyers fill every fliers are, then I'm one sleeper and there's no ands, ifs or buts.
Don't even give me dad.
Oh, you know, people don't over.
You know, people overrate them.
They're ready to just why they are underrated as all get out.
Nobody talks about the flowers.
Nobody gives the Flyers enough questions.
And don't you dare even try to say that they all that get enough credit.
They don't get enough credit.
There are a number four seed, but they can easily be disguised as a number one seed.
They have 36 regular season and overtime wins.
Their goal differential is a plus 36 that is plus 11 better than Washington Capitals.
They were great at home.
They were halfway decent on their 16 and 18.
But then again, they had more are to think Jack before saying thing they had.
I mean, I get it.
But the thing is, the Flyers, at 13 games off most of them were onward, so we don't really know.
But, you know, I said that I really do like to base a lot of the previous saw.
The pat laughs endgames in my right, the way I factored into them being a top sleeper.
I'm gonna just point this out to you.
The Flyers were 10 to know until they lost it.
Abreu intended to the hiatus s so that makes him nine and one and at night and wanted it in their last year.
Yeah, I want to point out to you, so I Ah, you look at this.
I mean, it's just such a good, you know, says a great team.
Their last 10 day of the best records by a mile, by the way, in 91 I mean, their home record was unbelievable.
Um, their goal differential top Bold is where their number three and goal differentials in the league the defense is top five.
Try their offenses. Top five.
Their defense is top six.
I mean, this is a team that can really go under the radar in this NHL restart.
I think there's no doubt about that.
So much for watching this here on the gold.
Our sports network.
This this has been the top five sleepers.
Indiana 12 Restart and I have been Jack Morgan from the gold Now are saying so long Everybody peace out.
