The NHL season begins and there should be a ton of excitement around Canada.
Edmonton and Calgary’s battle of Alberta should be back to those glory years of the 80’s and 90’s with two young and good hockey teams with the potential of climbing to the top of their division.
Winnipeg won’t be a slouch. Here’s hoping the Jets can climb again and see their second post season since their re-birth.
Ottawa’s run last year should give fans hope they can make the playoffs even though it’s unlikely they’ll get back to the conference title game. Toronto, of course, gave Washington all they could handle in round one last year. They’ll be exciting again this season.
Montreal has Carey Price, so you can always count on their presence come playoff time.
Sorry Vancouver — you’ve been left in the dust by the other six teams.
As for the Stanley Cup prediction; Tampa Bay and a surprise appearance by the Minnesota Wild.
