1. Panthers

It looks quite promising the Stanley Cup will be coming back to Florida. However, this time, it would be in Sunrise. The Panthers currently have a commanding 3-0 series lead over the Oilers. They secured a massive 4-3 win in Game 3 and now need only one win to secure their first Stanley Cup in team history. They simply have the Oilers’ number right now and are winning because of their immensely deep roster.

2. Oilers

The Oilers are in trouble. After losing the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final, they are now forced to complete a reverse sweep, or their playoff run is over. With the Panthers having star talent throughout their lineup, this is nearly an impossible task to complete. However, the Oilers also have superstars Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl leading the charge, so perhaps they could make some history. 

3. Stars 

The Stars looked destined to win the Western Conference Final, but things dramatically changed as their series against the Oilers continued. Edmonton’s offense woke up, while their scoring went down. It was a tough way for the Stars to go out, but their future is still very bright. They have a deep roster with a nice balance of veterans and promising youngsters. Expect them to be near the top of the NHL standings again in 2024-25.

4. Rangers

The Rangers just couldn’t get it done in the playoffs again. As their series against the Panthers went on, Florida completely outplayed them, and now they have some questions to answer during the offseason. Clearly, this club has enough talent, but they keep running into issues during the playoffs. Maybe next year will be different.
