It would be very on-brand, wouldn’t it.

In a year where the Stanley Cup might be awarded during a wacky makeshift format in front of no fans, two teams stand out as favourites to win, because of course they would.

No, I’m not talking about the actual front-runners, but much maligned fanbases who have suffered through decades of losing.

Hello, Vancouver & Toronto.

And while you won’t hear much talk about Toronto snagging the fugazi Stanley Cup on the podcast with the West Coast bias, these two Canadian franchises stand out as teams to finally bust their Cup drought in a year where some players believe a win doesn’t really count.

On this episode, co-host Kyle Bhawan and I talk about 24-team format, with news surfacing that this is the most likely scenario to play out if the NHL resumes.

And in honour of underdog week here at SB Nation, we give our picks for our top underdog teams to watch out for in the dance.

You know that the Vancouver Canucks are making this list right? I mean, it looks like they would get a favourable first-round match-up against the Minnesota Wild.

We end off the episode by ranking the five best undrafted players in the NHL today.
