Not a big deal I guess as most threads either die with only a couple posts or last for months. Lots of news in hockey free agency though that doesn't get the attention NBA FA stuff gets.

Between signing those two and overpaying for Crawford, how are you guys going to be able to afford any other players?

Anyways I'm cautiously optimistic this season about muh Debils. Schneider will now be starting the majority of our games, we signed Camalleri, managed to get Havlat for pennies (especially if he somehow manages to not get hurt all season), and dumped Volchenkov's declining ass. Our only real loss was Mark Fayne, but we have a ton of young talented defensemen ready to step up and take his place. Considering how little so many of the other teams in the Metropolitan did this offseason, I think it's realistic that we may nab one of the division spots.

It's not gonna be the easiest thing to do to stay under the cap, but locking Kane and Toews up was still the right move. Some guys might have to go (that $4 mil cap hit for Bryan Bickell for one just seems ridiculous even if he is a good playoff performer).

Some random thoughts on this and the upcoming season in general (long post alert):

>kane and toews first to break $10 million cap hit, $1.8 million higher than crosby (who might be a bitch, but definitely scores more than kane or toews)

mcindoe had a pretty amazing article explaining why this isn't really as big a deal as it seems: http://grantland.com/the-triangle/fear-not-the-huge-nhl-extension/

tl;dr: it's all about percentages, remember that tv revenue is going way up this year with the new rogers media deal in canada, and that the cap was always going to keep going up, and that crosby signed a deal and extension that were way way more frontloaded than what's allowed now

>potential metropolitan division playoff spot for devils

definitely can see this. it's not far-fetched.

Getting rid of Brodeur was long overdue, he was one of the greatest but he's old and it's been time to move on for a while. Schneider FINALLY has an undisputed number one spot, I think he could really shine. But anything can happen so who knows? I seem to recall reading a fairly decent argument this time last year why edmonton might have a surprise playoff run in 2013-2014, and why the canucks would end up keeping Luongo. Yeah...about that...

It's also worth considering that the devils were basically almost impossibly bad on the shootout last year: in a league where most team's shootout shot %'s and shootout win-loss records pretty much (a few outliers aside, obviously) universally trend towards somewhere in between 10%-30% and 50%-60%, respectively, they were shooting 7% and went 0-12 on the shootout. That was with a roster that had a lot of dudes (Elias, Clowe, Jagr, Ruutu, etc.) with career shootout shot %'s over 25, some over 30.

Schneider was something like .400 in shootout save percentage. Not good. Brodeur was actually ok in that respect, he was somewhere around .700, which isn't too terrible for shootouts since they're pretty fucking random by nature.

The Devils missed a playoff spot by 5 points with 88. They win just half of those shootouts, which they could reasonably expect to, they get 6 extra points, and they make the playoffs, maybe even in the third divisional spot in the metropolitan. Definitely as a wild card. And that's not even beginning to start trying to piece together what could have been if Brodeur wasn't given a co-starter role.

Also consider just how shitty pretty much that whole division was last year outside of the pens and post-deadline rangers (remember that philadelphia got the third divisional berth with a fairly ho-hum record of 94 pts [remember that something like 3/4ths of ALL teams are over .500 in point percentage in most of the seasons with the loser point]...which would have just barely been the last wild card spot in the west, and that was with an eastern-based schedule).

Again, it doesn't seem crazy at all, and I say this as a man who still hates the devils for crushing my hopes and dreams in 2003. Even though we got it in 2007, it just wasn't quite the same. the finals that year were a joke. ottawa barely showed up. 2003's postseason is when I truly fell in love with hockey: sweeping detroit, the 5-OT game against Dallas, Giguere's god-mode OT, Oates scoring two SHG to finish the sweep against Minnesota, Brodeur scoring on himself at the Pond, Kariya scoring minutes after getting completely wrecked by stevens > fucking ANYTHING from 2007's regular season or playoffs aside from parros and his thuggish, mustachioed charms, teemu getting a cup, bryz getting a cup (and, more importantly, having lots of post-game interviews) and the neidermayers winning it together

as for the ducks going into 2014-2015:

-got Kesler, which should be good if he gets along. we needed a consistently solid 2nd line center... I'm still kind of bummed Bones is gone, but...
-I'm glad Sbisa is. I just didn't like him, there's no real reason
-Silfverberg extension: say OH AH SILFVERBERG (no further explanation needed)
-Maroon's 3-year extension: great. dude has insane hands, despite looking like a straight-up meathead bruiser (not that he can't throw down)
-I'd also like to take this opportunity to point out that Matt Beleskey looks stoned. ALWAYS (pic related)
-No more Perreault: meh. At least we won't have to deal with out-of-town broadcasters maddeningly pronouncing his name as "perro", as in spanish for dog, instead of "peh-rowh"
-Heatley signing: got him for pretty cheap, he's got a clean slate here, and his attitude seems to be improved. I think he'll be a good fit but it's pretty low-risk either way
-Clayton Stoner signing: I'm disproportionately stoked about this, most likely. He's a good player, and I definitely feel more OK with Vatanen if he's paired up with him, but really what I care about is that it means that I can finally get a "STONER" jersey and it'll all be legit. I was super jealous of a dude in the green wild alternate who I saw with one
-I'm kind of jealous of the wild's jerseys in general, actually

sorry about the geeky ADHD rambling, I'm baked as shit and love nerding out on hockey and this thread is kind of barren right now. hopefully something interesting was said/regurgitated

Those finals in 2003 were a thing of beauty. If the ducks had had home ice advantage they probably would've won, sine every game was won by the home team anyway.

I'm still a little miffed at Brodeur not getting the Conn Smythe trophy, even if the series would've been a blowout minus JSG.

Night night Kings.

Red Wings showing real promise the start of this season. 6-2-2 ain't too fucking shabby. Our PP is picking up and we still got the best PK in the league. If we could get our 3rd and 4th lines scoring we'll really be rolling, even though they're playing fucking awesome otherwise. Penalties to a minimum, hard forecheck, and good defense. Our speed is good but making some mistakes because of it. Very excited for November.

Last season Detroit had a fuck ton, and still made it to the playoffs. Try playing without your two star forwards (and then playing with basically an AHL team) then complain to me.

Dunno how nobody mentioned this, but Martin Brodeur officially hung up the skates last tuesday for those that somehow haven't heard. I kinda wish the Blues had let him keep starting a few games so he could try and get to 700 wins, but it's pretty unrealistic to expect a team that's in the playoff running to start a 42 year old solely for the benefit of his all time win-loss record, especially when he already has the most wins of any goaltender.

I really hope he comes back to the Devils and succeeds at whatever front-office position he may take. Kinda stings that he decided to stay in St. Louis, but he still has a contract with them the rest of the year, and I seriously doubt he won't be back with us in NJ as soon as next year in some capacity. But no matter where he goes, I'll still always immensely respect Marty and always love him for what he brought to this franchise during his 21 years.

Pretty sure it was because they thought him hanging around another season would be hanging around too long, he didn't think so and went somewhere that would let him play. They'll probably retire his number next year.

Devils goaltending hasn't been awful without him. Schneider has struggled at times, but he's been doing alright recently, and Kinkaid has shown a lot of potential in his few starts, and he's kept high-caliber teams like the Blackhawks and Islanders to one or no goals until very late. Their main struggle is the rest of the team, which is kind of a mishmash of ill-fitting pieces.

>mishmash of ill-fitting pieces

Pretty much spot on. At least as far as our forward lines are concerned, and that's the area we've pretty much had to draw from free agency for for the past few years. Besides Jagr and Cammy, they've all been busts so far, too.

Our defense feels less like a mismatch and more just something that needs time to develop. It's mostly young guys, but I think most of them are going to become good, possibly great defensemen. And now with Deboer no longer behind the bench they're getting plenty of time to develop, too (especially Larsson, his minutes have skyrocketed).

I think Buffalo got screwed. I don't think Kane will ever be as good as everyone hopes. Seems too entitled. Maybe I'm wrong and a new start will put things in perspective. The Sabers have been bad too long and seem to be making the right moves the past few seasons. If they get McDavid they could be a real contender in the coming years.

Still think it should have been a straight trade, Kane for Myers. Maybe a pick thrown in there.

Little over a week till the trade deadline. Think there will be anymore big moves? Interesting this season that a few players thought to go are getting injured.

The one thing I don't wanna see happen is OEL get traded from Arizona. The GM said the only untouchable one is Doan. But I feel they could structure the rebuild around him, OEL, and Vermette. Vermette is more than likely going to be traded so I hope they get someone decent in return, not just a bottom 6 forward/prospect/pick.

Well since it was just announced that Kane will be out for six to ten weeks I'd expect Chicago to be looking for someone to replace his scoring.

Also Jagr is starting to get incredibly pissy about his diminished role in NJ (he only got like 13 minutes of ice time against AZ oh fucking wah), even if we keep up our current win streak and actually becoming legitimate contenders for the final wild card spot, I'm expecting us to trade him.

I honestly didn't think Chicago had a chance to win the Cup this year unless they got red hot in the last month, I think boogeymen like the Ducks, Habs, Predators and the Rangers are favorites to make it to the finals, but with the Blackhawks not at full strength and without Kane it just sucks to think of what could have been if they end up being extra feisty in the playoffs. Oh well, I'm bracing for both the Cubs and White Sox to implode this season under the pressure of all the press praise they've been getting the past few months.

Well you're in luck since he re-signed and you have Yandle too.

I think AZ is doing pretty well this deadline. Committed to the rebuild now. I wasn't real happy with the Vermette deal, but the Yandle one was pretty good. Still could be one or two more before the deadline. Vermettes agent said he wouldn't be opposed to signing with AZ after this season so he may wind up back there, which would be pretty cool because he was a bigtime fan favorite.

Wings got Cole for a couple of prospects we probably weren't going to use, for a while anyway. Don't know much about him but his numbers look decent and we could definitely use another scoring touch. I bet when everyone gets healthy he'll be on our 3rd line which is already pretty strong. Can't find out much about his contract to see if he's a rental or we'll have him multiple seasons.

Going to be an exciting rest of the season.

Jets are going to be a sleeper pick for a deep playoff run unless they hit another solid team. Central in general is a tough as fuck division, but they've quietly been one of the hottest teams in the league since the break and have added several solid players. I can see them going as deep as the conference finals if they don't run into a hot opponent. Their best shot is to crossover into the Pacific with the wild card spot.

Explain? Whether any fan wants to admit it or not, having the consistency of 24 straight playoff berths is something everyone wants. Granted, not always going very far is quite the downer. But being able to make it year after year..yeah that says something. The 2nd longest streak (San Jose) got knocked out this season, and the team and their coach parted ways. Since Detroits start there has been 3 different coaches and only a handful of the players who won the last Cup in 08 are still on the team. Of course it could vary every year with out stars getting older. But our young guys keep coming up and the "kids" who were taught by our stars are steadily learning season after season.

Consistency doesn't really mean defining. They did win the cup four times in the last 20 years, but especially lately, they aren't really considered strong contenders consistently enough for it to be a big deal when they get eliminated, so them not making the playoffs at all wouldn't really be that much bigger a deal. Outside of Michigan, it'd just be the same playoffs, just without the Red Wings for once.

Blackhawks fan gloat time. The Wings are a good team but not even close tot he face of the NHL or the envy of the hockey world. Their old stars are gone or will be soon and the young guns will take a while to grow into themselves. The consistency should be admired from an organizational standpoint, but the team still changes year by year and if they can't make it past the first round, who really cares? There are tons of great teams that were good for awhile and made the playoffs, but making the playoffs isn't what it's about.

Also I find it hilarious that you compared them to the Sharks since they're famous for being "great" and then failing in the playoffs recently.

I wasn't really comparing the two. The point was that the team with the 2nd longest eventually faltered, lost their coach, no captain, no cup, etc. While we have come close to missing the playoffs, our team hasn't fallen apart like other ones. Never a talk of rebuild, some people call for the head of Holland or Babcock whenever we go on a losing streak, but for the most part our front office and coaching staff hasn't had issues. Salary cap hasn't been an inssue I don't believe, players are happy, etc etc. I guess the word stable would be better than "the face" or "defining team" of the nhl. And please note I didn't originally say that and I was quite drunk the post before this. Thank you.

Kronwall hasnt had a "kronwall" hit all season and that hit is being reviewed.
How about Ovi's hit in game 7 where a player with his head down against the board got laid out and laid there for a minute before returning to the bench.

He was suspended for game 7. Unless he appeals it, which idk if he can.

But that's what I'm saying, plenty of other bad hits but he gets the phone call. It's like a warning to the other players to calm their tits, and they use it on a team who could very well lose the series because of it.

Rangers now have an better chance with the caps than the Isles. Rangers fared better against the caps in past playoffs and the regular season.

Isles kinda played like the Rangers had, they're fast, and they block alot of shots. Like the Rangers previous John Tortorella system.

Still a series against the caps isn't going to be 4 game sweep or at least an easy feat. Rangers are very defensive and they are the type of team to go up 2-0 in the first and defend a 2-1 lead. With good goaltending and Defense. You won't see an easy 6-2 blowout win from the Rangers.

Tampa just may roll over the Habs. Their home game run was deflated by Detroit, but going up 2-0 may just spark them.

Looks like Chicago will beat the Wild, same with Ducks taking Calgary.

I think the Rangers and Capitals is the biggest toss up. If they split the games in Washington it's anyone's series. Hoping for the Rangers though.

I'm a fan of both NBA and the NHL but I'm leaning towards NHL playoffs >>> NBA Playoffs


I would watch both of my favorite teams if they were in the playoffs but if both games were on at the same time I would watch Hockey and check the basketball game on my phone. And if I had a choice between a random NBA or NHL playoff game featuring two teams I'm neutral towards I would watch Hockey.

Even though I'm probably more familiar with more NBA players and stars. NHL playoffs are more excited and every game seems to be down the wire. NBA games usually have a team go on 10-0 runs to get back into it but what kills the NBA is late in the game in a close score and it's the losing team fouling to try to get the ball back and hope for some missed Free Throw shots. I know it's strategy but it's very slow, While Hockey has the goalie pulled and it's 6 on 5 with seconds to go.

I also think the lower seeded teams like the Jets, Penguins, and Sens are better than the NBA lower seeded teams like the Nets, Celtics, and Mavs.

Carey Price sweeps up a bunch of trophies, including the Hart Trophy, once again reminding us that he is the best goalie of this generation.

Also, apparently the NHL board has approved a change in the fundamentals of the game. Regular Season Overtime Periods are now 3 on 3. Teams are only allowed to have 3 men on the ice during OT. Mostly in an effort to get rid of the Shootout. Dunno if they mean 3 skaters and a goalie, or 3 men including the goalie.
Either way, it's a dumb gimmick.

I like what the Wings did with that Russian kid. I imagine he won't play in GR very long if at all.

Smart for the Coyotes not to trade that 3rd and get Strome. Their lineup looks exciting as hell and since they have to spend money could take on a couple big name guys in free agency.

They would be more ok if Saad was still on the team, but shit happens. It will probably be long and drawn out, unlike Riberio because he had such a shit season in AZ.

They're also a potential candidate for future expansion in MLS though not until after 2018. As much as sports betting creates a conflict of interest for leagues, Las Vegas is one of the largest markets without a major pro sports team and given that the arena will be next to the Strip and also be used for boxing and UFC events, it'll be a big draw.

I'd be on board with the Nordiques coming back. Can we just get rid of the Panthers already? The amount of fans they draw is comparable to an AHL team and it's fucking embarrassing.

Yeah, it would be pretty cool to have the Nordiques back in the league. Props to Quebec City for getting things done and building that swank new arena. Also yeah, the Panthers must be on life support at this point since they haven't been remotely relevant since the mid 90's, crazy run from a few years ago notwithstanding. They're basically a step above the Atlanta Thrashers but a step below the Hartford Whalers in terms of relevancy and success, and even then I'd rather have the Whalers back if it meant the Panthers relocating or folding.

I'm convinced Florida is not a hockey market. Hockey teams will work literally anywhere in Canada on the other hand. Although I think a team in Las Vegas has potential to bring lots of $$ to the league.

I'm curious to see how much they'll draw once Stamkos leaves. It's pretty much a done deal that he's leaving (probably to Toronto for god knows what reason) but yeah. They're FUCKED unless Jonathan Drouin taps into his sky-high potential within the next three years.

Don't count on it:

>The Panthers have announced that they signed a 13-year lease agreement with the county and will have a new logo and uniforms after the 2015–16 season. Their original logo has remained almost unchanged since their first season in 1993.

Jeez, I know the Habs always slump in December, but good fucking game God what is going on with these guys?

Can't y'all at least take it to OT and snag a point? If it weren't for our miraculous, orgasm inducing start, we'd be down at the bottom of the standings with the fucking Leafs.

Habs fan here. Lots of guys are struggling tbh. PK is playing like shit, Pacioretty led the league in plus/minus at one point during the season and he's at a -9 now I believe.

Condon and Tokarski can't carry the load, Therrien inexplicably changes lines even if they work, Gallagher being hurt sucks, Tom Gilbert fucking sucks. This team is making me depressed, man. I feel like Bergevin might be cooking up a big trade to shake things up.

And with Saturdays win, so ends the Canadiens' season. I've never been more disappointed in these guys than I have been this season. One of the strongest starts I've ever seen, hell one of the strongest starts in NHL history. They came within inches of shattering the league record for most consecutive wins from the start of a season. And then they imploded, hard. Everyone says "Oh they just need Price back" which is complete crap. He's a great goalie, and clearly a good leader, but he's not a goal scorer and the other guy did perfectly fine. They'd be winning games against shit teams by like 1 point in double overtime or shootouts. Or they'd get BTFO. I swear they averaged about two goals per game. Seriously, win or lose they almost always were scoring 2 or 3 goals then checking out. But in those first few months.....they were destroying the other teams. Embarrassing them, top tier ones. Crushing the game and crushing the pussy.

So what the fuck happened? What the hell was the catalyst for this Hindenburg style season??

it was price, or at least price going down was the biggest part in all of this.

when you know your goalie can pull out huge saves, it allows you to play more aggressively on offense. you can pinch the D in more. i don't know if it was the coach telling his team to be more conservative or the skaters trying to overcompensate (i'm not a habs fan), but it's in everyone's head, from the coach to the skaters, when you go from having an amazing goalie to an untested goalie.

Because they're the second and third seeds in the Central division, hence why they're playing each other. I think they should just switch to the NBA's system of having the top 8 teams in each conference seeded instead of seeding the top three teams in each division and then two wildcard teams by best record overall.

http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/news/las-vegas-nhl-expansion-team-approved-will-begin-play-in-2017-18/
Officially happening.
>It's official: The NHL will have a 31st team starting with the 2017-18 season. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced on Wednesday afternoon that the league will be expanding and the newest team is going to be in Las Vegas, making it the first professional sports team into the market. The Las Vegas team will be owned by Bill Foley and comes with an expansion fee of $500 million dollars. The new Las Vegas team will play its home games at the newly opened T Mobile arena, a state-of-the-art venue with a hockey capacity of 17,368. The team already has 14,000 season ticket holders. Foley said he expects the building to be full every night, especially after the first year or two when they demonstrate a winning attitude, and that 85 to 90 percent of the crowd will be season ticket holders.

>Along with the announcement that the league is expanding to Las Vegas, Bettman also announced that Quebec City's bid for a team has been deferred. Bettman cited the value of the Canadian dollar, as well as the fact that there is already a geographic imbalance between the Eastern and Western Conferences as the primary reason for holding off on Quebec City for the time being. Along with the expansion announcement and how it impacts Las Vegas and Quebec City, Bettman also announced on Wednesday that no current NHL teams are planning on relocating.

>We know the team will exist, where it will play, and when it will begin. What we don't know is what it will be called. There has been speculation that the Black Knights is one of the options because Foley is a big Army guy. So big, in fact, that he concluded his statement at the introductory press conference on Wednesday by saying "Beat Navy." Every team in the NHL will lose at least one player, while Bettman said on Wednesday that he thinks the Las Vegas team will be an opportunity to add more talent than any recent expansion team. The expansion draft will take place on June 20, 2017. The team will be announced the following day.

Some of the key points for the expansion draft:
>Teams will have two options for who the players wish to protect: They can either protect seven forwards, three defenseman, and one goaltender; or eight skaters (any combination of forwards and defensemen) and one goaltender.

>There are also some requirements on the players that are exposed. Teams must expose one defenseman and two forwards that are under contract for 2017-18 and played in 40 or more games the previous season, or 70 or more games over the previous two seasons.

That's cool Las Vegas finally has a major pro sports team and I wouldn't be surprised if they even get NFL and MLS teams in the future. The Nordiques will be return to Quebec City sooner or later when the NHL is ready to do so. They'd probably have to realign anyways so that both conferences have 16 teams each like the NFL.

Yeah, I really don't understand Montreal on this one. At least Edmonton got a young, elite Dman on a very friendly contract to anchor their blue line for years who could be a top 10 in the league in a few seasons, even if they had to get robbed in order to do it. Weber on the other hand is on the wrong side of 30, is several years removed from being a Norris candidate and still has a decade left on his contract.

Subban is much more talented offensively but way more of a liability on defense. Weber is way more solid on defense and more of a bruiser were Subban is mostly a finesse guy.

Honestly I'd take Weber even with the age difference. Also it should be noticed that the Habs saved some serious cash, everybody looks at the long term contracts and sighs but Weber's was way more front-loaded.

eh, depends on how you play. Subban is better at creating, an OFD if you will. Weber has a hell of a shot and is in no means bad on offense, but is more of a TWD or more traditionally a DFD. (That's Offensive defensman, two-way defenseman and defensive defensemen)

Idk, I've seen the guy play live a few times and he honestly never really stood out. I ain't saying he's bad, but on any other team he's just another player.

I mean look at the Habs' last season. They were solid until Price was out. Where was Subban then? People talk about him like he's a secret weapon, but when it came down to it, he played like an average guy.

And to be frank, I think all the praise has inflated his ego and damaged his ability. I've seen alot of plays fuck up because PK had to hot dog it. I've literally seen the guy, with the puck mind you, skating around one handed. One hand on the stick trying to go for the flashy play. Guess what? He got poke checked, pickpocketed. And then they got scored on. Can't be doing that shit.

That said, I'm not sure I would have traded him....all he needed was to come back down to earth, you know? Maybe a few years in Nashville will be what he needs.

That's how it goes with that type of player. Ever notice how the league average for +/- is -.4? A lot of goals are scored on the counter attack after somebody fucks up on offense, and players like Subban are equally likely to either fuck up or score a spectacular goal trying a bit too hard. Thing is Subban is one of the few Defensemen who shows flashes of talent that make teams envious, which is why the trade happened.

this is exactly it. the Preds have Josi, who's a pretty conventional DMan and almost certainly gonna be on a pairing with Subban. For a good chunk of the season the Preds' defensive scoring was up there with pairings like Seguin/Benn, and that was with Weber still there. Subban/Josi are gonna score like mad.

Weber is good on defense, but there are better shutdown players in the NHL (Vlasic comes to mind) and also better scoring Dmen (oh hey, it's Subban!) but Weber is a talented defenseman who can cornerstone a team like the Preds. However, the offer sheet they signed Weber to was almost Luongo-level bad and to have even some of that off their hand would have been worth most trades alone. Weber is a great player but part of what made him great was playing with a solid, deep defensive core in Nashville. Montreal has Price to backstop them and uh...well, Weber? He doesn't have the surrounding support that makes him an actually worthwhile acquisition, and I doubt his "locker room presence" is gonna be as good when the Montreal D is continually letting Price get peppered lmao.

I like to watch the Preds, and I've loved Subban for a long time, and being able to be a nationally relevant NHL player while playing in a place that isn't a "hockey city" but still has a large and dedicated fanbase is only going to do good things for him. He's "showy" but more than that he's a passionate hockey player who wants to play meaningful hockey and Nashville is giving him that opportunity.

>tealdeer: Weber is good, Subban is good, different players but Subban in Nashville is a better fit than Weber in MTL

>We're excited to announce that we just submitted a new petition to the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) requesting the vacation of a portion of Occidental Avenue South to allow construction of the SoDo Arena. If approved by the City Council, this conditional street vacation will finally put us in a position to work with the NBA and NHL to acquire teams for Seattle.

They're already going to privately finance the arena, worked out an agreement with the other professional sports teams so there are no schedule conflicts, and wouldn't start vacation and construction without approval and first being able to acquire a team. The downside is that this is going to affect the Thunderbirds considering they're one of the highest drawing teams in the WHL and they've been around for 40 years. Maybe they can still co-exist since they play in Kent but who knows. The Sonics being back in Seattle would be nice but I dunno which team would relocate unless the NBA grants an expansion team like the NHL did with Las Vegas.

There is a "Curse" actually. In 93, the Habs were struggling in a game VS the Kings, and were able to to get a power play by having the refs check McSorley's stick and found it's broke equipment rules by having too deep a curve. They were able to take back control with the power play, win, go on to win the cup, and a Canadian Team has never won the Cup since. Even though I think 4 years in a row, a Canadian Team was in the cup finals.

Gotta love any series that creates animosity between teams, and after last night, I'm sure the Pens aren't going to be welcome in Nashville for a long time.

Pretty cool that Nico Hischier was a Devils fan as a kid. Here's hoping he's the catalyst for our next three cups, baby.

Commenting...

Hischier looked fairly epic, but so do most skilled rookies early on. The real test is always the second half of the season.

Hischier has looked great for just about every minute he's been on the ice, just hasn't gotten that first goal yet. He got absolutely robbed twice tonight by Budaj.

I'm VERY pleased with how this Devils team has been playing so far. There's been a good bit of defensive lapses and sloppy play at times, and I don't expect them to keep getting these kinds of results night in night out. Buy holy shit has it been fun to watch ao far.

Compared to former expansion teams they got a much better selection of players in their draft. That said they're still playing way above their preseason expectations there's no denying that.

Seattle’s in the hunt for an expansion/relocated team pending approval of an arena deal - https://www.forbes.com/sites/carolschram/2017/12/08/nhl-announces-seattle-expansion-plans-ownership-change-for-carolina-hurricanes/amp/

The new owner of the Houston Rockets also wants an NHL team in Houston so it looks like we could be seeing more teams in the future.

>Canadian teams pump too much cash into the league now. This isn't the late 90s anymore.

I can't see Ottawa and Calgary move unless they don't get their new arenas but the city councils will find a way to keep them from moving to the States.

>Arizona? You think Bettman, the bridge troll he is would let all that work keeping the Coyotes go up in smoke?

Probably not but it looks like Coyotes management is gonna be on a year to year lease at Gila River Arena until they figure things out in trying to get a new arena or relocate if that fails.

>Didn't the Islanders get a new arena, and now they want a new one? What?

They relocated to the Barclays Center but that's just temporary now that they just got approved to build a new arena at Belmont Park - http://abc7ny.com/sports/its-official-islanders-heading-back-to-nassau-county/2803176/

Just wait until the Seattle expansion when Bettman forces every team to expose the best player they have at one position for the expansion draft.

I guess, but I don't think it's that easy to game the system via an expansion draft. I think it's more of a coincidence that Vegas managed to snag some genuinely talented players that for whatever reason just didn't fit in their former team's plans this season rather than Mean Ol' Bettman forced teams to give up the rights to talented players they actually wanted to keep.
