Puck Daddy - NHL

Before Puck Daddy even started here on Yahoo! Sports (our super special B-day is next month), we were coming to the NHL page every day for one reason: The hockey crack rock that is the "If the Playoffs Started Today" matchup generator.

It's such a tease. The Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins in Round One? Yes please.

The suddenly plummeting Chicago Blackhawks against the Vancouver Canucks in a "flavors of the year" first-round dustup? Sure.

The Detroit Red Wings and the Nashville Predators? Again? Meh.

As we transition away from the manic insanity of the trade deadline and into full-speed Stanley Cup playoff mode, the weekly rumors, scuttlebutt and innuendo chats transition into a combination of general hockey talk and the sort of goodies you've come to expect from our resident experts. So while Lyle "Spector" Richardson of Fox Sports and David "Dave" Pagnotta of The Fourth Period will be discussing hot-stove topics like coaches getting canned and the impressive crop of restricted free agents this summer, they'll also be breaking down who will or will not make the postseason cut.

Please join us at 1 p.m. EST. And, as always, bring the funny.
