    2016-17 NHL Hockey Season Thread

    Will the Pittsburgh Penguins repeat as NHL Stanley Cup champions? Will the San Jose Sharks return to the Stanley Cup Finals?

    Who will be the two teams that will contest in the 2017 Stanley Cup Final?

    Another NHL season and a World Cup of Hockey tournament will be exciting.

    Appears to be a nice trade for the Leafs, but their trades for Raycroft and Toskala looked solid at one point as well.

    Saw a lot of hatred for the deal from Leafs fans but they seem to have been somewhat swayed by the advanced stats floating around.

    Most of them still hate the five-year, $25 million contract that followed shortly thereafter though.

    I'm not a fan of trading/FA for G; prefer to have them come up through the ranks and earn the spot. Andersen does look impressive; definitely hate the contract and like most big contracts the Leafs sign I'm sure they'll regret it. Better than MAF though.

    Have to trust the brains in the organization; probably finish outside the playoffs this year again, but in 2 more seasons they may finally be ready to compete again.

    Actually Rangers have a couple of ELITE shutdown D-men available for the league's consideration. Yes, the Rangers will absolutely consider trading Girardi and or Staal for one of your 1st or 2nd line forwards plus draft picks! This is a limited time offer, but you must act now by calling Jeff Gorton at 1-800-4RAPE-ME and don't forget to ask for the "Scott Gomez" special. Call today!

    That is insanity. It was only $50 million when the league expanded from 21 in the early 90's which scared off a reasonable bid by Milwaukee, a city that I cannot understand why it does not have an NHL team.

    Not totally against this expansion, but it's annoying how the league isn't balanced. It's easier to get in the playoffs in the West than the East, and now it's not even balances in the conference.

    I know MLB had one division with 6 and one with 4 teams for a while but it just seems unfair.
