It's time to bring back the NHL thread! I just pre-ordered NHL 15 for PS4.

Are we doing a MacRumors Yahoo fantasy league again? Last year was pretty good - thanks to who organized it.. I forget :)

I could be down for a fantasy league.

About a month to go before pre-season games.

Hope the Leafs will make the playoffs this year after they finally decided that rolling 4 lines is a good idea. They'll probably hire Bylsma if the season doesn't get off to a good start, or maybe even promote Steve Spot.

And Yahoo took away the ability to login with a Google account, so it would probably be better to use ESPN.

Watch out for my Panthers. They might just miss out on a playoff spot this season, but they are primed to become a very dangerous team soon.

They seem to be going in the right direction....except for the Bolland signing. Even Garth Snow wouldn't have signed him for 5 million a year for 5 years.

Yeah, I was a bit bummed about that, but its not that bad. And having Barkov, Bjugstad, Bolland, and MacKenzie as our four centers is fine by me. It does make things interesting in the future though, because we have guys like Shore and Trocheck ready to play that center role for the Panthers. With Tallon being allowed to spend now, I expect one of those two will be used as trade bait, to land us either a top four Dman, or top six winger.

One thing is for certain though, teams are going to have a tough time going against the 6-4 Barkov, followed by the 6-6 Bjugstad, at center. Barkov reminds me of a young Sundin, and Bjugstad looks like a better goal scoring Getzlaf.

Look to have a good building team again this year if we can stay healthy. Still think Koivu is a garbage Captain. Wife works with one of his cousins and thinks we are crazy lol :D
