    2017-18 NHL Hockey Season Thread

    Season #101 of the National Hockey League will have Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins gunning for a three peat.

    Also, the Vegas Golden Knights will make their debut as the 31st team in the NHL.

    The NHL will continue their outdoor NHL game traditions and will also have the 2017 SAP NHL Global Series inside Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden in November.

    Finally, this thread will provide AHL Calder Cup Playoff and IIHF World Championship talk as well.

    Here's to another season of NHL hockey.

    The last remaining Winnipeg Jet and Phoenix/Arizona Coyote is leaving the desert.

    Arizona Coyotes won't offer captain forward Shane Doan a new contract

    I turned off the Islanders game is pure disgust and they scored 4 unanswered goals in a 5 minute power play to lead 6-5. Halak replaced Greiss and of course gave up a late goal to send it to OT. Then I believe Josh Baiky scored the game winner in OT.7-6 final. Unreal. I need to stop watching!

    Lemieux averaged nearly the same PPG as Gretzky with less help.
    Gretzky was not in a class by himself. Gretzky average 158 points per season, and Lemieux 155


    Bobby Orr was in a class by himself. Not only was he in a class by himself, but he was the best player at Canada Cup 1976 when he couldn't even get out of bed some mornings and his career was basically over due to his knees.

    Never saw Orr play, but Mario was incredible.

    If not for the injuries, I think Lindros would've been in that conversation too. One of the most physically dominant athletes I've ever seen.

    Orr was flat out incredible. A shame that injuries shortened his career.
