    Well Habs are not making a great start and the NHL will probably rig the season for Vegas because they have to prove a point that hockey can work in the desert while doing nothing to save the Calgary flames because you know, the flames are used to moving,

    For such a gambling city, Vegas has had some bad luck with their goalies as of late.

    Seattle getting its hockey team back makes sense but it’s a big finger to Quebec too.

    I was just talking to my good friend earlier, big Panthers fan and NHL fan, and he was saying something about Seattle and Quebec maybe gets the Hurricanes.

    It’s clear Quebec is heading to get a hockey team but it won’t be an expansion team. Thing is there’s a couple of teams down south that will relocate eventually but the nhl will insist that losing millions = profit.

    Didn’t Quebec have a team that they lost due to attendance? Which ironically may happen to the Carolina Hurricanes which also have low attendance.

    No, Quebec lost its team due to a couple of factors.

    One they couldn’t build a new arena, two the Canadian dollar was pretty low in the 90’s and there were other factors. Quebec is a smaller market but they definitely didn’t have low attendance.

    Can't complain about this season being a bruins fan. Things are going well considering we have a lot of new young players this year.

    The Vegas knights have been impressive to watch as well. They are owning the Western conference right now.

    Casuals don't even know that Vegas has a team! It's a joke for them to be in first place.

    It’s a scheme.
    Though if Seattle gets a team before Quebec I’ll be annoyed. Though atleast Seattle used to have a team. Vegas is just ridiculous.

    Anybody predict the future for Borgman? Have interest and also interest in a specific sim. Potential if he stays or goes. Also Sonny Milano only 11 minutes but 19% shooting percentage. Have to figure out his ratings with shots on goal combined with shooting percentage, fatigue rules help to suppress franken stat players though.
