With the Bernier thing and the playoffs potentially over tonight, I think it is time for around the NHL 2014.  Seems as though we are just about there.

no?  the 2013 one was started on June 25 2012, so June 24 2013 we should start the new one as it pertains to the 2014 season

OK, but the original thread for last season (2012-13) was started in June as ... 2012 - 2013.  Chz edited the thread tilte to just ... 2013 after the 2012 part of the season was lost to the lockout.

A lockout seems unlikely this season, so I still say that the thread should be ... 2013 - 14 ..........

:P

Just yanking your chain a bit.  This offseason is dragging.

At least he hasn't proposed a completely far fetched and out to lunch trade in the thread yet ..........

Can we take Fucale at 52 because that would be about as early as I would care for that scenario.

13-14 starts on July 1st. The first day of the league year. (Although it might actually be July 5th this year, not sure if they're defining that as the start of the new league year or as just a delayed free agency start).

The cup was handed out last week, the draft is over and the UFA courting period starts today at noon.  Now can I start this?  We need to switch to the new season because I am way over what happened last year.  Lets go!

Phoenix and Glendale agree to lease agreement http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=426847
Looks like it will be for 15yrs and 225million bucks.  Good now does Phoenix finally have an owner then?

Dupuis just got resigned as well, 4yr deal worth 15mil

Liger beat me to it, but here's another link on the Glendale deal:

Hopefully with a little more stability they can work on building up the fan base to make that franchise profitable.

Rask said to be getting a deal for $56M/8. That'd be 1 of the 2 or 3 biggest cap hits for a goalie int he league.

https://twitter.com/...448775178043394

Don't the Bruins know how to build a hockey team? We here in Buffalo know that you can't devote that much $$ to a goalie.

I don't know if anybody is following this on Twitter, but apparently 40+ MVP ballots listed Ovechkin as a LW, even though he played RW this year. And we're supposed to put real stock into awards voted on by the media? Ha!
