***2013-2014 NHL Off-season Thread ***

KHL is going to be a major problem for the NHL in the future. Could easily see 5 Russian superstars and about a dozen or so nhl-caliber players staying in Russia.

Before Kovalchuk they could only get 4-5 NHL caliber players and a bunch over the hill players

Its a great move for our team. We should be the #3 team in the division, behind Chicago and St. Louis.

As long as we are top 3 in our division, we make playoffs. Minnesota and us will battle it for 3rd, maybe Winnipeg too.

Yea I am looking forward to the move, I think we will matchup well against the teams in the Central. Our games with St.Louis, Chicago, and Nashville are already pretty intense, im sure those rivalries will build seeing these teams more often.

I think Chicago will destroy us, for now. Our speed/hustle gave Chicago a bit of trouble, but once they are clicking we don't have the talent to match.

Blues I think we can expect to be near a 50-50 split with them. A healthy Lehtonen is significantly better then what they have.

Nashville will be our new big rival IMO. I will never forget they booed Modano. And of course Minnesota has a reason to hate us

Welcome home Brett!

Teams will be starting Training Camps in the next couple of days.

Here is a list of teams, and a nice Preseason Preview read:
http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=681902&navid=nhl:topheads
Stars opened the preseason with a 6-5 loss to St.Louis

I don't think the Stars are going to have many problems scoring goals, but the defense will need to be tightened up. Seguin played well scoring a goal and an assist, and rookie Valeri Nichushkin made an immediate impact scoring 2 goals....that kid is going to be a great player for us.

Great to see Hockey back.
