    First off, Congrats to the St. Louis Blues on their first ever Stanley Cup Championship

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

    Will anyone ever be able to listen to Laura Branigan again?

    Can the Blues repeat?

    Is John Tavares still a snake? (Narrator: He is.)

    Will the Blue Jackets be able to field a roster after free agency?

    Will the refs still suck?

    Will the San Jose Sharks be teal enough?

    Will a team from Canada ever win a Cup again? (Narrator: They Won't)

    Will the Oilers make the playoffs? (Narrator: LOL)

    The answers to these questions and more, coming soon!

    Canes sign Jake Gardiner for 4 years for only $4.05 million per.

    That;s quite a discount deal IMO

    Marner signs for 6 years with the Leafs, just under $11 million per.

    They will now have like 50% of their cap tied up in 4 players.

    Good luck with that.

    I can see the Avs winning a round or two, but not all the way

    I mean, its a quarter of the way into the season practically and they're still on pace for 112 points. Barring a big injury to McDavid or Dreisietl I don't think they'll regress all that much.

    Re: their supporting cast
    Everybody's gonna need career years to make any impact, but in their case, making the playoffs will be a success

    yeah that was about 2-3 years overdue. My guess is that they'll bring in Brian Burke to replace him. He's got the old guy hockey curmudgeon thing going but isn't a xenophobic bigot.

    Yeah, Don's been off the rails for a long time, and he tainted 11.11 with his own ego. This was a step too far and it was a no-brainer move to let him go. It's a pity, because I often found him entertaining.

    And to defend himself he went on...Tucker Carlson's show.

    If anyone had any doubt that he's a right winged racist, talking to Tucker should eliminate that.
