The NHL online international shop has a bit of a sale on (still not cheap but cheaper for some stuff) and you can get a 15% discount if you sign up to the mailing list.
Not sure if it's valid on discounted stuff though.
Also I'm fairly sure the current successes are an indicator of the end of days. Blue Jackets went on a 15 game streak (admittedly choked the last couple of games)
The new season is upon us, if anyone wants to subscribe to Premier Sports the promo code NHL49 gets you a year for £49 (instead of £99) on Sky (maybe on Virgin too? And perhaps the app only? I just did the sky one)
Seattle reveal their name
Cue all the "I'm a Krak-Head" "see you at the KrakHouse" gags
Logo is shit too.
I think they either have the plural as 'kraken' or envisage their team as like the tentacles of one kraken.
I was hoping for the pigeons but it could be worse I guess?? 😂
Lovely seeing Leafs choking a 3-0 lead in the playoffs.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
I quite like the name and logo. I was worried it was going to be the Seattle Amazons or something.
Rangers are buying Lundquist out the final year of his contract.
I'm no NYR fan, but King Henrik is one of the greatest keepers of the last 20 years.
Deserves a better send off than "fuck you, good night"
Wonder if he will do another season or 2 elsewhere (Maybe Seattle?) Or hang up his pads for good? He is 38, and not quite the player he was in his prime
(Same was said of M-A Fleury though, and he did a great season with Vegas)
I hope he goes somewhere else for a season or two, has a blinder, and gets to retire on his own terms. (While I have a mild crisis as players my age are considered ancient/past it/retirement age...)
I'm still not over Flower leaving the Pens, and the way Vegas have fucked him around this year. At least if he ends up somewhere like Seattle I might get a chance to see him play 🤞🤞🤞
Talking of Seattle, how does a new franchise player up? Just free agents? Or do they get extra draft picks?
When Vegas joined, teams got to list a number of players that are protected, unprotected players could be selected to join the expansion team.
I think there was limits on how many can be drafted from 1 club (and limits on how many can be protected by a club)
I imagine it will be similar for Seattle
