So a new year is coming up, and its sure to be an exciting one, with the Kraken entering the league, lots of player movements as well as some divisional changes.
Hopefully fans will be in seats and the season will run, uninterrupted.

Will this be TML's year (hahahaha)?
When will McDavid finally say "enough's enough" to the Oilers?
Can MTL go deep again or were they a flash in the pan?
A three-peat for TB?
Ovi to continue to move up in the record books?
Will Sid stay healthy?

And so much more...

Can’t believe Vegas are exempted from the expansion draft. Each year they have been cup contenders.

I always look forward to the draft and free agency day. Gives a bit more information on who the major players are going to be. Thankfully the covid divisions are gone.

Duncan Keith goes from Chicago to Edmonton,... it's what the Oilers need on the back end,... a veteran with a winning record who can bring some valuable teaching skills to the young Oiler d-men and show them what it takes to win the big prize. I don't think McDavid is going anywhere and will remain in Edmonton for many years to come.

Looking forward to another possible Boston vs Leaf playoff series in 2022. Although I had great joy watching the Hab fans in my family tie themselves in knots this year during the final it would be satisfying to watch the Leaf fan family members experience the same annual torture while sitting in the same room during a playoff series.

All regular season I hear them chirp about how great their teams are and how they have a real shot at winning the cup,... then the playoffs start and the bleeding begins, lol. Don't let me down 2022.

rumours from the center of the universe....
Kuemper to TML, presumably to replace Freddy. Not an upgrade in my book, not by a long shot.
Hyman likely to walk. "..good, I'm sick of hard working, gritty players on this team"-Kyle Dubas

some interesting players unprotected for the Kraken....Weber (or is he done?), Parise, Suter, Bishop, Skinner. Maybe Yandle? Eichel?

Pekka Rinne retires.

Hyman is in town, and Holland is likely to overpay him, for an ugly 7 yrs, they are guessing. A 29 yr old guy who’s had 1 or 2 decent but not unreplaceable seasons is not investment material. Holland, so far, is not an improvement over Chiarelli, who was a disaster. He’s also re-signing Mike Smith for 2 years, doh.

Losing Larson also hurts, but I think that was personal rather than business. We now have nothing left from Taylor Hall.

Pretty solid d corps. I imagine a few of them are targeted elsewhere and may bring back some decent picks or talent. Not sure how well they are going to score goals but since the Leafs shuffled McCann, pencil him in for at least thirty! Their uni and logo are growing on me as is the name.

I like Hyman....in the right contract of course. Hes the working mans hockey player, on nights when all your stars seem to be daydreaming about banging instagram models, he's out there hustling like a one-man show.
surprised to see him leave over $, considering his dad is filthy rich, but I guess, it comes down to the principle of it no matter what....and he likely has given up on TML going far in the Kyle Dumbass era.

Smith for 2 years? wow.
