    On the other side, it is a strange situation with Arizona. They have a 5 year window to try to get an arena sorted out and come back. For now, they still own the rights to the Coyotes name, and all the records from the franchise, the original Winnipeg included. BUT it is not really 5 years. They have to have at least 50% complete on an arena within 5 years. So that might be a 3 year window, 3 and a half? To get building started I mean. And the billion Arizona got paid for the team by the league? That has to be paid back to the league if they come back. The thought is that is the price of expansion going forward. The owner could just pocket the money and walk away, but he seems determined to try to get a team back in the desert. We shall see what happens.

    Is that their plan, playing with no name and colors next season? Has any team in the NHL did that in the past?

    Yeah this is a first I do believe. I mean even without official colors and a logo, they still have to wear something lol. I understand that getting the fanbase involved in choosing the identity of the team will get people invested, but it is certainly an odd choice.

    Is malicious, hatred-fueled vengeance against Pete DeBoer for his curse eliminating Vegas TOO MUCH to ask for?!

    MSG had a $10 viewing party which is a STEAL.

    What a 3rd period comeback to knock out the Canes! I've never seen the Rangers dig that deep to win it!

    Bruins leading half way through the second period. I kinda still like Florida to win this one. This game, and the series .But Boston has them banged them up feirce, not good for them facing the Rangers next round.

    I didn't watch the game because I was the phone with a friend of mine. I am glad Florida finally won the series. The Rangers are next.

    The Dallas vs. Colorado game is still going. But guys! I seriously think the Rangers could win it all. This from an Oilers fan. They have everything, stacked at every position. I like the Rangers alot. But Florida...they are due lol. It has been a fun playoffs. I think the NHL is doing it right! :)
