NHL 21-22 Season

@Lleytonstation

I am looking forward to the NYR new coaching staff and the new direction in which the upper management will take the team. I think they have a bright future with all of the youth they have on the front end and back end. One thing is for sure, I hope the trade talks with BUF and Jack Eichel are now done. I am hearing MIN is a landing spot for Eichel.

looks like it's a long road for them coz in 19-20 season it was a transition time for them already and still they not back in the mix as you mentioned (oh lleyton lleyton not tagging me in nhl is kinda a crime, p.s. don't take it too seriously i'm just thinking out loud:-D, coz how did you know of that given i never talked too much about nhl on this board:-D..once again, move on..)

Nope. Only every 54 years or so, like the English football cycle.

NYR got their “It’s coming home!” tease cycle recharged in 2014, making the SCF but getting Justin-fied by LAK, just as they were unable to Gainey a foothold in the 1979 Finals fail vs The Habs or the 1972 Finals when they were Orr-ed out by Boston.

I think to get back to hoisting The Cup they will need a Messier-like signing…in 2048 if my cycle calculation is accurate. 1940 to 1994 was quick enough for my taste in Blueshirt championship cycles. Even Gretzky couldn’t get it done again when he reunited there briefly with The Mess in the late 90s.

Then give me those Islanders hey day.

Ouch, shots fired! At least I was alive for 1994 season! Not so sure I'll make it 2048. Waiting for Cup wins for the NYR is almost as bad as waiting for Halleys Comet, very few people see it twice! Thank goodness I've watch Rafa win 20 majors :)

Mark Twain came in and went out with the comet, (1835-1910). Had he lived a bit later he would have been a Whalers fan and probably lamenting the current 42 years of drought in the NHL for the Whalers/Hurricanes.

Really hoping for a "traditional" team to raise the Cup again, but if it has to be TB again, at least they have Kucherov :cool:

I will be 87 the next time the comet comes strolling through. Hopefully, unlike Twain, I wont die the next day.

TB won't 3 peat. Not a chance. That team was like 5 MIL over the salary cap in the playoffs. They'll lose too many key players. They'll still be good, but they'll probably be like 2nd RD exit good, not SC champion good.

The most interesting thing to me now is to see what Seattle's team will look like. And I suspect MTL will be on the bubble to make the playoffs and is more likely to miss than make if the divisions are back to normal. I know they were sort of on the bubble this year, but not really because the bottom 3 in the CDN division were so bad that there was a big point gap between MTL and teams 5-7. It was clear MTL was in with 10 games left. I doubt that'll happen next season.

I'm a Leafs fan so that's what I say about Fed, lol.

Wow. Some surprises. Anybody panicking about exposing a guy? Edmonton is good. Stars? Yikes.

Crap that Vegas doesn't have to give a guy.

The bad news:
Isles lose Eberle, which is better than giving up fellow exposed Bailey.

The good news:
More cap space to address some of the gaps and keep Cizikas.

ESPN article on the draft.


Dallas lost Oleksiak, & he got a nice new payday.
That was a mistake from dallas.
