    The NHL has made it very difficult for a Canadian based team to move into the playoffs by aligning them all into 1 division, although it will increase rivalries. I have always felt the NHL should cut back to a 70 game schedule but we all know the Jewish owners are all for the money, not the quality.

    That's because "non-essential" travel between Canada and the U.S. is a major problem. I like the idea of all the Canadian teams being in one division, though travel back and forth within such a large country will be a big-time headache.

    I just hope the NHL can survive another season of few or no fans in the stands without too much financial damage as it's more dependent on ticket revenue than the NBA, NFL and MLB.

    Philly wins the first game of the season 6-3 over Pitt in the battle of Pennsylvania.
    Sidney Crosby scored at least.

    I think the Devils finally have their franchise goalkeeper in Mac Blackwood.
