    I'm not sure how my rangers will fare this season.

    I'm pretty excited, the Flames actually appear to be a really good team this year. Not a team on a streak, but a well put together team that can sustain things. Hope I didn't just jinx it. Go Flames Go!

    Draft on Friday (meaning back to back big league drafts!!!), and I always look forward to it. Hughes will go #1 to New Jersey, giving them 2 very young star centers (along with Hischier), and making them a team to watch in a couple of years. The Rangers will do well too, with Kakko, who challenged Hughes as the best player in the draft. They already made some noise, trading for (our) Jacob Trouba, who was packed to leave.

    Colorado, the board fav, will do very well at #4, plus they also own #16. Potentially 2 star players in just one round of drafting. I've said it before, The Avs are solid!

    As for my Jets, the good news is we have a first rounder again (at #20), thanks to the Trouba trade. We still have some salary to shed, so this offseason is far from over.

    Yeah, i hope to see my rangers back in the playoffs next season. If they manage to get panarin, i could see them trading either krieder or vesey.

    With Kakko and Trouba, and maybe Panarin, your team will be on the rise!!

    Round two tonight....last night was NBA draft. This is like another Christmas for some! I'm starting to get a little too spoiled: St. Lou wins the Stanley Cup, The Raptors win it all the following night, 4 Canadians get drafted in round one alone, Brooke Henderson wins another golf tournament....yah this has been quite a ride!

    Brand new season begins tonight! Not quite in hockey mode, but it does not take too long.

    Any predictions?

    My Jets are not looking quite as competitive after losing a number of players in the offseason (incl. Trouba, Myers, Tanev, Chairot). Now big Buff is deciding what to do with his future, which really hampers our D. But signed our 2 young guns - Laine and Connor, and gave Morrissey a long term deal. He will be a future captain.

    Should make the playoffs, but as a wild card.

    Lets go!!!!

    I am amazed how good our Jets are doing this year, minus 1/2 of last year's D! But the young guns are gunning, and our goalie is playing elite stuff....and the coach is doing an amazing job!!

    Hopefully it lasts, and we make another playoff appearance.

    St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester collapsed on the bench last night. The Ducks' medical staff had to do chest compressions and used a defibrillator to revive him.

    This was during the "dad's trip" so his father was at the game and rode with him in the ambulance to the hospital.

    They post-poned the game to be played at another night as neither team wanted to continue. Rakell of the Ducks and Parayko of the Blues ripped up a part of the bench to allow medical staff more room to work on JBo

    The captain Alex Pietrangelo visited him in the hospital last night and JBo was in good spirits. They facetimed the rest of the team to allow a huge sigh of relief as the team refused to leave anaheim until they knew their teammate was ok.

    The doctors at the hospital are running a multitude of tests to find out what happened, but as of right now he is in good spirits and is ok.

    There is a video of him collapsing on the internet/sports sites/youtube but I am not going to attach it as -even though I know he is ok- it's still frightening seeing the players reactions etc.

    He has no heart issue history (like Rich Peverly of the Dallas Stars who suffered the same thing in 2014) (he's the story you may have heard of an NHL player being revived and immediately asking when his next shift was)

    He is a healthy 36yr old man and just...collapsed.

    Yeah....this was very concerning last night, and I was proud of the 2 teams for deciding to postpone. Sounds so far like pretty good news, so this might end up being a good story.

    Hockey players are tough as nails, and it amazes me how soon they want to get back into action. They play hurt. Never hear them complain.

    Good luck Jay!!!

    Early, early, early move to get the playoffs started, with an expanded format. 24 of the 31 teams would still be alive. That's a lot of teams. But, this is a strange year. Hub cities most likely. The top four teams in each conference play a round robin tournie to determine seedings, while the other eight play best of five series.

    Could start in July, but who knows?

    This plan could wind up with a team winning the cup that did not deserves to make the playoffs. Then again, highly unlikely. The good news, lots of injuries will have healed!

    So Butler if you read this, game on, as The Flames are playing The Jets in this proposal!

    NHL moving forward. Awarding trophies for top scorer, most goals, goals against avg,. That's it, regular season over. Now the playoffs are expected to begin, or whatever the interim period is called.
