    First off, Congrats to the uh *chokes back vomit* Pittsburgh Penguins on their second consecutive Stanley Cup Championship

    Free agency started July 1st, at Noon EDT, and with it the official dawn of a new league season.....

    Will Phil Kessel once again fill the Stanley Cup with hot dogs?

    Can the Pens threepeat?

    Is this the worst free agent crop ever?

    Is Don Cherry still alive?

    How bad will the Vegas Golden Knights actually be?

    Will the San Jose Sharks be teal enough?

    Will a team from Canada ever win a Cup?

    Is Jaromir Jagr going to play until he's 50?

    The answers to these questions and more, coming soon!

    Radulov to DAL for 5/31.25....

    That's funny in both how much Dallas overpaid and that the Habs let one of their better players walk haha

    I'll miss Bonino. Hope he has a good run in Nashville though.

    Vegas Golden Knights picked up Bruins Radio Voice Dave Goucher for their TV Broadcasts. I'm going to miss his golden pipes.

    One of my best friends is a die-hard Canucks fan and this is problem the thing he fears most in the world.

    I don't see it affecting much. It's like anything else.. people will jump on the bandwagon, or they won't. At the end of the day the Canucks need to continue to rebuild and get back to being a competitive team.

    What's the over/under on the Oilers making the finals this year?

    And where do people think the Golden Knights will finish? I think they end up near the bottom. They have a wealth of talent, but I'm skeptical that they will be a competitive team this year (at least not consistently competitive).

    yeah I was thinking they'd be like the Sharks were back in 1991, the first expansion team in a good while, and they only won 17 games that first year. Then again this is the cap era so VGK was able to get a hold of some players of a caliber that never would've hit previous expansion drafts.

    I'd say 16-20 wins is still probably reasonable.

    I'm curious how Nico and Nolan compare with one another this season since there was the big debate about the two leading up to the draft.
