Draft tonight! So much intrigue and suspense after the first two picks! Who will trade up/down/in/out? Will Karlsson move? What about Lucic, Kessel, Skinner, Parayko, Anderson, etc? I'm going crazy here!

Welp.

Training camps are on.

Karlsson and Pacioretty are traded.

McDavid already has his hands on a third-straight Art Ross.

It snowed in Edmonton yesterday and today.

Bring on the year. evil cheers

Burns and Karlsson on the same team makes San Jose a potential monster....if Karlsson can stay healthy.

Blah.

I've watched Marc Bergevin systematically dismantle all that was fun for me to watch over the past few years.

Blah.

I'm looking forward to my Avs proving that last year wasn't a fluke and they can build and keep going up!

San Jose can have one of Burns, Karlsson or Vlasic on the ice at all times. Scary. Still can't believe Wilson pulled off that trade... he didn't give up diddly squat. I assumed the price tag would be much, much higher.

On the other hand, I thought Bergevin did much better with the Pacioretty trade than some of his other deals. Time will tell, particularly on Nick Suzuki's development, but I thought he did better. Overall, I certainly agree that CH ownership and management are the least fun people ever and they hate everything good in the world. Broad strokes, sure.

As for Zetterberg... it's always sad when careers end with injuries like that. I hope he gets into the Hall one day, he dominated for so long. Datsyuk and Zetterberg were terrifying.

Oh yeah, and the Avs. Well, besides the potential to show that they really are a team on the upswing, they also have the luxury of already knowing they'll have one of the best draft picks in the Jack Hughes lottery thanks to Duh-rion in Ottawa. (All the Sens had to do last year was not trade for Duchene and offload Karlsson and Hoffman at the deadline for full value. They'd be set for years.)

I'll tell you one thing... Toronto fans (and media) are next-level annoying now that they've signed Tavares. Gonna be hard to walk that walk all the way...

NHL.com has this cool panoramic group photo of the current "star" players...

It was a fun quiz for myself to see how many I knew without looking at names. I didn't keep score, but I'm guessing I was around 60% accurate. How many can you get?

Caps hang the banner in about an hour. cool

As an aside, the Caps will be playing without Tom Wilson who is serving a 20 game suspension by the NHL. He needs to change his playing style.

Yeah, Tom Wilson really has to screw his head on. Four suspensions in a year, two of them in pre-season. That hit was completely avoidable and dirty. I have no doubt that losing 20 games and $1.2 million will help a little. They went from slaps on the wrist to lashes with him.

What, because they made it to the Cup final last year? Completely different situation and you know it.

Come at me, I've been practicing ripping on the Leafs since before I could talk. poke wink

Any Penguins fans here? The news about Matt Murray having a concussion sounds rough. frown

That's a tough loss, even if Fleury regresses in Vegas...

Already plenty of significant injuries early in the season, including Murray, Thornton, Jones, Weber, Perry, Sekera, Luongo... Ouch.

Caps off to a good start, no Cup hangover. First three games tally 18 goals and get 5 out of 6 possible points.

Edmonton finally plays its first North American regular season game tomorrow against Boston. It's crazy to say it in Game 2 of an 82 game season, but this opening road trip will pretty much make or break the year for the Oilers.

Detroit and Florida are the only two teams without a win this season.

Alternatively, New Jersey is the only undefeated team! Chicago has yet to have a regulation loss.

I was scared Edmonton would be the only team without a point. Thankfully, Connor and Cam pulled out the win over an objectively weak Rangers team. Hopefully, the secondary scoring shows up someday and the defence settles down.

I'm very impressed by Carolina so far. They are young, fast, and skilled. Montréal has started well too, considering expectations.

Seen on Instagram today:

Oilers: "We can't have Connor doing everything."

Connor McDavid: *does everything*

Oilers: "Well I think we've learned our lesson here."



Quote:


Last night Connor McDavid tied Jari Kurri and Paul Coffey for the second most 4+ point games in Oilers history before the age of 22 (5 games). Wayne Gretzky is first with 59.



You can talk about different eras all you want but that stat is just mind-boggling. How, Wayner???
