    2016-2017 NHL Hockey Season

    This thread will be for Hockey chat during the 2016-2017 season. For all you hockey fans out there know that the season begins Oct. 12!

    I know it is early but pre-season does start next week. For some of us fans we are itching for the season to start, effed up Oilers did not make the playoffs again so no hockey team to cheer for since April.


    Here is a useful NHL link to summarize the happenings of the upcoming season.

    https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-2016-20...ed/c-281003352

    Dates to remember:
    • Season begins October 12th and ends April 9th
    • NHL Centennial Classic game is New Years Day. Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings (outdoor game).
    • January 2nd is the Winter Classic game. Chicago (yet again) is in it with it being Chicago Black Hawks vs. St. Louis Blues (outdoor game).
    • NHL Heritage Classic is on October 23rd. Edmonton Oilers vs Winnipeg Jets. (GO OILERS!!!) (outdoor game).
    • NHL Stadium Series game is February 25th. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers (outdoor game).
    • All-Star break January 27-30. All-Star game is January 29th, not that anyone cares as it is a stupid dumb game.- Not sure the NHL will allow fans to vote for players like last year lol




    Another thing to note you can participate in NHL Fantasy Leagues. I do not like to spend money on these so there are free options through:



    I personally prefer the Yahoo Sports one. I find it is the easiest to use.

    Later in the season there is also the option to join various NHL Playoff Brackets. If you can predict the winners you can win some good money through those.



    There was also mention early in the season that the goalie equipment changes would be happening for this upcoming season. That was the goal. However it looks like that is not going to be the case for awhile. New pad sizes were supposed to be in effect on the first day but delays in design and actually placing the order has now set that date back. No one is really sure when the total equipment change will come into effect, it does need to happen though. http://www.torontosun.com/2016/08/30...-18-nhl-season


    Don't hesitate to post some highlight reel goals too. There is some wicked talent out there.

    Connor McDavid is our source of highlight goals:


    Good luck to all your chosen teams!!

    I'M SO EXCITED.

    I live less than five miles from the Xcel Energy Center aka where The Wild play. I'm a Blackhawks fan myself, but they are my second favorite team. I love hockey

    I went to UND for my undergrad.

    SO READY TO SEE MY BOYS KICK SOME BUTT.

    Aaaand Price will not be starting tomorrow night. I guess I waited like 10 months to see him play so I can wait a few more days.

    Lots of players are injured already. Price is out with the flu though so not all hope is lost.

    Sid is missing his opener though, that is pretty big. Price is missing his opener. Huberdeau got his achilles sliced by a skate. Eichel looks like he will be out too with an effed up ankle. Also Seguin, Bergeron out. So many top players.

    Okay so maybe Auston Matthews is something good. 4 goals in his NHL debut. No player in NHL history has done that. First game he sets a league record. McDavid has some competition.

    Haha Matthews is going to be the only one scoring goals for that team. If the Laffs ever get decent goaltending and defense, they might actually be okay some day.
