I wonder if he'll be the veteran call up from the AHL... assuming he plays well enough in camp to earn that.

Just no more teams in Canada. It doesn't help anyone in the league but that team to be in Canada

Eh it works both ways really.  I mean it forces a team to lessen the likelyhood of tanking for generational talents but on the other side if a team truly is bad, then that would suck where in 2016 you get the #4 pick in a weak draft.

Also increases the conspiracy theory possibilities where a Penguins team with a few key injuries falters to a 8th or 9th worst record and get a 1st or even 2nd pick with a Tarvares or even better quality player at the top. I say just let the chips fall where they may but I don't run a sports league

 

This is what the NBA has gotten since the last time the worst team (25% chance better then what the NHL is going to have) won the top pick

 

2005) 6th worst
2006)5th
2007) 6th
2008) 9th
2009)2nd
2010) 5th
2011) 8th
2012) 3rd
2013) 3rd
2014) 9th

 

idk if that is better then the worst team getting the top pick

In Topic: Ranking All 30 NHL Locker Rooms

While some of the author's comments are lame, he is right about the Florida one.  What tradition are they preserving?  From what I hear they still celebrate their one finals run (where they got swept) 19 years later.

I think the rope off was a joke when the Justin Bieber thing was abuzz in the hockey world.

A knock on the Rags locker is their big honking ass logo in the middle which of course you're not supposed to step on but its so honking ass big it gives you little room.
