If Kessel can find chemistry with either Crosby or Malkin, along with Letang and Maatta staying healthy I think Pittsburgh will win the east.

Until the playoffs where Fleury falls apart All jokes aside he was really good against NYR in the playoffs in the 2015 playoffs.

Vancouver, B.C. – The following statement is from Trevor Linden, Canucks President of Hockey Operations, regarding the passing of Richard Loney:

“The entire Vancouver Canucks organization is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of longtime anthem singer, Richard Loney. Richard sang the anthem at the first Canucks NHL game in 1970 and his rendition of our National Anthem remained a welcome tradition at Canucks home games for over 40 years. I was lucky enough to hear him sing O Canada so many times during my playing career. He’s been such a big part of our team’s history and was a true icon in BC, lending his one-of-a-kind voice to the Lions, Whitecaps, Giants, and even at Safeco Field when the Blue Jays would come for their annual visit. He supported sports at all levels and often volunteered for charities and for minor league hockey, baseball and soccer events around the Lower Mainland. He was such a nice man and I will miss him. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Marion, and his family and friends.”

When you guys used the proxy to purchase it, do you always have to use the proxy to watch? Or just to purchase it?

I have the private VPN advertised here so I'm assuming I could move my IP around, however I won't be able to use it when I'm using Game Center app on my TV?

I'm not totally convinced Buffalo will do the same with Eichel.

As for Melrose and Stamkos, I remember they wanted to ease him into the league which meant not playing him as much and in certain situations to help him succeed.
Look at Brule. They tried to rush him along and that may have hurt his development. Same goes with Kyle Turris when Arizonia tried to rush him along too soon.
There's talk of having a Pouliot, Nuge, Eberle 1st line with Hall, McDavid and Yak 2nd line

Anyone else think the 2016 World Cup of Hockey format is stupid?

They want to replace joining the Olympics with this, but it seems like a mean nothing tournament especially when there's an Under 23 joint North American team. The rule with that team is that anyone 23 and under for Canada or US must play for that team. You're going to have a team of McDavid, Eichel, Seth Jones, MacKinnon going against Canada.

It'll be good hockey, but it won't get those patriotic juices flowing.

/end rant

That contract was just signed. Likely won't affect services for a while.

I won't be watching it. It's pretty much a glorified all-star game at this point. Complete money grab.

If NHL players aren't at the Olympics because of this garbage, I'm going to be choked.

So it sounds like Franson is signing with Buffalo for 3.3aav, and we're paying Sbisa 3.6.

Wtf.

In the end, it's all about compete level. The reason I never bother with the All-Star games is because no one's even trying. I rather watch pond hockey between two groups of kids that hate each other.
