Seeing Toronto and Montreal multiple times on the schedule as opposed to Nashville is a beautiful sight.

I'm hoping they do it one of the home games against the Lightning, so Stevie Y can be there too.

The names are another new low for the NHL, there are so many great players some love for the tradition of the game. Seeing Montreal and Toronto more often is a god send, 3 original 6 teams battleing it out can't wait for that. I also hope they retire Lidströms jersey at the first homegame against the Bolts.

Stevie could easily be there regardless of whether the Lightning is the visiting team or not.  For example, when Wayne Gretzky had his jersey retired in Edmonton, Mark Messier was there and was still an active player at the time and his team was not the visiting team.  If Messier can do it when still playing in the league, no reason why a GM can't.

Only 3 original 6 teams in the division will battle it out?  Hope you're not leaving the Wings out of it with the Bruins, Habs, & Leafs being the 3.

The problem as I see it going with legend's names is that Orr & Howe are required.  Do you really want Boston not in the Orr division or Detroit not in Howe?

Probably true. I just can't see Stevie attending if there is a scheduling conflict with the Lightning playing as well.

Well obviously you didn't get the memo...

 

Lidstrom's #5 isn't gonna hang in the refters just yet...It's going back into circulation when Holland smuggles  Derek Meech outta the KHL.

Don't they have the Metropolitans on the wrong side of the country?  Shouldn't they be on the west coast?

 

I don't know.  I'm still trying to wrap my head around going from the "west" to the "atlantic" without moving the city.

Don't insult orangutans

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!
