Cuch is high on the Blooze

I'll think about this and post it later but I suspect I'll make the same mistake of putting the Goil too high.

The teams that were the hardest to predict:

Buffalo: They're the hot sleeper pick right now and I feel like while there's a slight chance of that happening, there's a much greater chance for them to be a slightly more entertaining tire fire.

Philadephia: I honestly don't know who's going to be their goalie midway through the season. It seems more likely that they make a trade or bring up Carter Hart than keep relying on Elliot or Neuvirth or Stolarz or McBackup.

Carolina: Similarly they seem like they could be ready for a bump but I don't know if I trust Brind'amour as a coach and Darling is already hurt. Weirdly I think Mrazek will do better if he gets a lot of starts early on.

Dallas: Are they better? It seems like they should be but I don't know if they actually are. Heiskenen should be good but who knows. I don't trust them.

Sulak made the Wings, Witkowski, Hronek, and Hicketts were all sent down, but since most veteran Wings defensemen have some minor injury right now, at least one of them will stay up.

I could see Columbus being a big disappointment if they start slow while Jones is out. If they’re way back the Panarin trade talk will get much louder.

Columbus is in boom-bust territory, I think. Really hard for me to choose between them and Carolina, but I'm in on the 'Canes this year.

Early, early over-under on the season:

How many games does Tom Wilson get suspended for to start the year? I'll put it at 6

I was optimistic about Carolina until they claimed McElhinny

#RedWings lines at practice same as yesterday:
Nyquist-Larkin-Mantha
Bertuzzi-Nielsen-Rasmussen
Abdelkader-Athanasiou-Vanek
Helm-Ehn-Glendening
Frk (extra)
D:
DeKeyser-Cholowski
Daley-Sulak
Ericsson-Jensen
Kronwall (out) not skating. Hronek and/or Hicketts not recalled as of yet.


Ericsson is kind of hurt. Crazy that Cholowski is on the top pair but it’s not wrong. I think Nyquist and Bertuzzi switching would be better for line balancing but who cares.

I'm bad at this. Minnesota will be boring as shit this year and get exposed by the faster, younger, better teams. Of this I'm about 90% sure.

My next-door neighbor was wearing a Broons jersey with his last name on it and #3, which I thought must be a retired number (and it is).

Should I go ahead and order a (Chinese knock off) Karlsson Sharks jersey for the season?

Karl Alzner is a healthy scratch for the Habs' season opener.

At $4.625M left for four years, that contract is a sneaky contender for one of the worst signings in the league over many years.
