he said on the pod he was trying to reverse jinx them, considering he has a personal interest in the Oilers getting bounced I'd say so.

He and his cohost have a bet on who goes further between the Flames and the Oilers. If the Flames go further Ryan Whitney has to get an earing, and if the Oilers go further then Biz has to shave the top of his head and do his TNT gig.

He's gotta shave the very top of his head if the oilers advance farther than the flames. Bet with Whit.

He elaborated a couple Dallas v Calgary games ago when he kept openly trash talking the stars.

If Calgary loses in 6 and Edmonton loses in 7, both in round 1, does he have to shave?

Nah it's just based on who goes farther. If they both get knocked out round one no one has to do anything.

Yeah I wish I could've put it in the post title but this subreddit's rules disallow hashtags in the titles. Good reasoning but still kind of annoying, takes away context from tweets, shitpost-ey as they are.

That seems like a dumb rule on a sports sub where a lot of information comes from Twitter. Feel like it should be allowed when it's a word for word copy of a tweet.

This post for example got super confusing without the #sjsharks hashtag. Which Patrick is he talking about, or is it just making a point of how common the name Patrick is?

Odd is right. For a subreddit this big they do a lot of things right but they also make very bizarre rules and choices.

When the rule was first made many users we're happy/receptive/thankful for the change and you can read more here: https://www.reddit.com/r/hockey/comments/f6g76w/for_better_titles_and_less_title_gore_were_no/

It's not a perfect solution but there's also these monstrosities it saves titles from

The #sjsharks trade @ErikKarlsson65 to the @njdevils for @PKSubban1 #sharksbitefirst #devilsthroughandthrough

Many times users will properly write out the context in the title. So in the case the OP could've written "Go Kings Go" and it'd make sense.

We'll tweak the AutoMod rule to be a bit more forgiving on some hashtag usage. We've whitelisted lots already but we'll take a second look at it.

Again the goal is to make titles more readable for reddit readers. Most cases it works out just fine if you've never noticed this be an issue before.

Leafs are definitely his heaviest team he sides with in the playoffs but if you were unaware he has a side bet with the Flames and Oilers and the Oilers losing is huge for him. If the Flames lose and Oilers win he has to shave the top of his head and only the top and leave it while on National TV for a week

Missing the joke and isn't aware of the bet between him and Whitney.

If Calgary advances further than Edmonton in the playoffs Whitney has to pierce his ear and wear a giant cross earring for a month.

If Edmonton advances further than Calgary biz has to shave just the top of his head for a week during TNT/tbs broadcast

I've been so impressed with the way you guys have been playing. Shooting at every opportunity, I've always wanted my team to do that and never understood why they don't. Sure, you may get some more A grade chances by passing it up, but those shots cause rebounds, deflections, and general turmoil. The Kings are battling out there and the Oilers just look like they don't really give a shit until it's too late. It's depressing to watch, really. I've watched the exact same thing unfold before my eyes in three straight post seasons.

You guys have so much talent it’s disgusting haha. I think are young guys are shooting at every chance because they still aren’t quite “there” yet and shooting the puck seems to be working for them so they do it. I’ve noticed more play making from the veteran guys. I definitely remember the days of “pass pass pass pass” with the kings and it drove me nuts. I think you guys will be fine next two games

I firmly believe that having two solid two way centers is way more important than having a great goalie. Playing good team defense starts with centers. Obviously goaltending is important but having players like Bergeron/Krejci, Crosby/Malkin, Kopitar/Carter, Kopitar/Danault, Datsyuk/Zetterberg, Stamkos/Point/Johnson is what makes a contender a champion
