    2017-2018 NHL Regular Season Thread (Part 1) - Preparing for Lockout #3

    Well kids, we're 2.5 hours away from the puck dropping on another glorious hockey season! As we all know, this is the inaugral season of the Las Vegas Golden Knights. They are better off than prior expansion teams and could even push for a playoff spot in their first year! The Penguins are unfortunately once again the defending champs and we get another year of listening to that crap. Speaking of listening to crap, Millbury will now be on national broadcasts in the booth, replacing Eddie (god help us all).

    Predictions are welcome for the next couple of days, despite the season starting tonight! As usual, we wait until the last second to make threads....

    HOCKEY

    So apparently Bruins have hired Judd Sirott as the play-by-play radio announcer and from what I heard he is terrible.

    There's a lot of very pessimistic Caps fans this year. And I understand why. We're probably the least improved team on paper. However, when you lose Johansson, Williams, Shattenkirk, Schmidt, Alzner, Winnik, etc., you're going to be the least improved. Losing all those players is going to be rough. I won't lie. But I'm optimistic. I love Kuzy+Oshie+Orlov, and I'm glad we locked them up long term. The Oshie deal is gonna hurt after a few years for sure. Locking up Kuzy+Orlov through their primes was fantastic though. I'm encouraged by some of our young players getting a chance. Vrana is gonna be real good. Walker is already a fan favorite and I think he'll thrive, given the opportunity he's getting. Our defense isn't going to be the greatest. Orpik getting more ice time is not anything any one wants to see. Djoos I think has a chance to be a difference maker. GGTW needs to straighten up. I love Wilson for his hockey skill. He was solid on the PK last year. But these dumb penalties need to stop.

    We're in salary cap hell. According to CapFriendly, we're still over the cap, so not sure how that works. I wish the offseason would have went differently, but we are where we are. Can't go back and change anything. Will we win the President's again this year? Nah. Will we win the Metro? Probably not. We still have our solid players like Ovi+Backstrom. Holtby is a perennial Vezina contender. Holts+Grubauer combined for the best GAA last year. If they can play similar again, I like our chances.

    I think Holtby will be in the conversation, possibly win the Vezina again. I hope Backstrom gets consideration for the Selke finally.

    I expect the Bluejackets to win the metro, Pens to still emerge from the Metro in the playoffs. Gonna be tough to beat Tampa who I suspect will win the Atlantic. Really questionable for the Pens to rely on Murray. I know they had little choice, but I'm still not sold on the kid. Between his inexperience at being THE GUY at the NHL level with an 82 game schedule and his suspect glove hand, I'd be surprised if he gets over 50 starts. I expect Flyers and Hurricanes to make an aging Rangers fight to stay in the playoff periphery.

    In the West its all Oilers as long as Talbot and McDavid stay healthy.

    I think Nolan Patrick will win the Calder over Nico Hirschier but I'm curious to see what the best Strome kid to date does in AZ.

    And the player that got a warning, in the middle of the play, got whistled for a penalty for it
