Default NHL '14 - '15 Season Thread

Training camps start soon, so let's get the party started.

Unfortunately, a bit of bad news to start. Carol Vadnais, 6-time All Star who played for the Bruins, Canadiens, Rangers, Golden Seals and Devils, died on Sunday at age 68.

He won Stanley Cups with both the Habs and Bruins, but what I remember him best for was when he played for the Golden Seals, and was the only NHL team I remember whose players wore white skates.

The best thing about the football season getting ready to start is it means hockey's right around the corner.

Very exciting. There is so much anticipation for this upcoming season, for me, at least.

Bob Suter, a member of the "Miracle On Ice" team that won the Olympic gold medal in 1980 and the father of Minnesota Wild star Ryan Suter, died Tuesday at the age of 57.

Suter died suddenly in his hometown of Madison, Wisconsin, and is the first player from the famed 1980 Olympic men's hockey team that upset the Soviet Union and beat Finland for the gold medal to pass away.

So - sat down with my season ticket partner to do the game draw for the upcoming season at MTS Centre. Caught some good games including Pittsburgh, Chicago, Rangers and the home opener against Nashville. Can't wait!

Hopefully we'll be doing a play-off draw come April! (Would make a pleasant change.)

I'm undecided on this season..you lose a 30 goal scorer not replaced.

They trade a tough as nails top four defense man that really did not have to be moved for cap space, and got three draft picks.

Draft pick are a crap shoot at best..unless you get in the top five or so.

This team did not get better just older and slower.

I play daily fantasy sports, almost every day.
I might ask you guys for advice on players as I really am unfamiliar with the NHL or players that are good or bad.
But I do plan on learning the sport and watching games this year!

Wings play the Bruins tonight for the season opened in Detroit. I hope the fact our veterans are healthy and our youngsters have some experience will bode well for this season.
