interesting article...not gonna lie i thought of the whole "Innocent until proven guilty" side but that was covered.

Should the NHL suspend Patrick Kane indefinitely?

Jack Todd: NHL needs to send the right signal by suspending Patrick Kane

Why would they suspend him? He hasn't been convicted of anything. He hasn't even been charged?

Not defending him or what he's potentially done but seriously, we have nothing other than accusations. I could understand suspending him if he's been charged but he's just under investigation right now. Where do you draw the line?

First, Adidas pays NBA star James Harden with a $200 million contract over 13 years. Then they pay the NHL to design players' jerseys.

According to Linden on Team1040, Salo has relocated with his family back to Vancouver. Linden will be discussing a role for him on the club. Salo may also have his own Ring of Honour night.

Adidas has had the NHL jersey contract since 2004, just under different brand names (CCM and Reebok).

Nothing new here.

This has nothing to do with new jersey designs... This is the contract to make/sell them exactly how they are right now.... Instead of RBK in the tag it will say Adidas.

moving to adidas will give some teams an opportunity to overhaul their jerseys as well, but i suspect the majority of them will remain the same

for the love of god, nashville needs a change in jersey (the yellow fuck case of an eye sore)

LOL the Sedins are such nerds. I don't think people really realize how special it is that we have weird creepy telepathic ginger twins on our team.

M Santorelli: 33pts last year, his +/- is 0 having spent most of the season in a Leafs jersey...

B Sutter: 33pts last year, +6 on a contender all year.... gets 4+ mil

Santorelli has a TOI average of 14.23 mins per game along with a 86/100 46.2% faceoff percentage. He barely plays shorthanded with an average of 33 seconds of shorthanded play per game (2014-2015 season). Over the course of his NHL career, he's played in 336 games scored 55G & 65A for a total of 120 points with a -43.

Sutter has a TOI average of 17:19 mins per game along with a 688/671 50.6% faceoff percentage. He plays shorthanded with an average of 2:18 mins of shorthanded play per game (2014-2015 season). Over the course of his NHL career, he's played in 495 games scored 98G & 87A for a total of 185 points with a +8.

Sutter is also 4 years younger than Santorelli.

Talked to so many people and they've all jumped off the bandwagon . Saying they're not any bit excited about the 2015-2015 season.
Well, I for one am super stoked and optimistic about the upcoming season!

My optimism and hope died ages ago. I think at this point I'm just glad hockey's back. I gave up being optimistic about the Canucks cus it's been one let down after another. Now instead of, "Oh i'm stoked and really optimistic about the coming season!" it's "Surprise me."

I wouldn't say i'm excited. I'm not optimistic either.
The only exciting part for me will be seeing how the new players fit into and the potential of prospects having good training camps and challenging for roster spot.

The very best thing that can happen this season is a prospect having a break out season. I have very low expectations in terms of winning or making the playoffs. If they somehow turn out a good season and develop some prospects, great! If not, oh well I saw that coming.

Not particularly excited. Realistically, we aren't winning a Cup with the lineup we've got. If there's no shot at a Cup, we're just playing for regular season bragging rights...and that just lowers your draft pick so...not a lot going for the Canucks this season.
