could also just change the thread title "NHL 2017-2018.

* OV lost his scoring touch ...was hoping maybe 3-4 hattricks to start the season.
But at least they have 2 capable lines now ovie/kuz/vrana looks pretty good.
I'd hope the coach would play ovie with both backstrmo & kuz separately during a game like they do with crosby in Pits.

* ...sad to see that kuchrov/johnson/palat line broken up since last seasson but great to see kucherov and stamkos.

* sucks that Marner is already in the doghouse (-7). Hyman is still doing great that, + marleau means only 1 of brown , marner, kapanen, soshnikov can crack top9. Hope they keep JVR and komarov there which only means kadri or Bozak getting demoted but that won't happen. So only 1 of those sophmores can move up.

* 10game win streak last year in CLB wasn't a fluke

* time to bail on tavares? or at least find him a coach so they dont' always strart as bottom feeders.

* at least OTT almost had a streak of not losing regular season games.

Wonder if the biggest question this year will be if
1) the hype of Hischler in NJ will do better than that of Matthews in TO last year...
2) vegas will be like florida (with subban or fleury like was it vanbiesbrouck for FLA?)
3) montreal tanking hard. shoulda signed
4) $10M/yr signings being last place teams. god why would you throw money at eichel or harden when they haven't gotten you in playoffs or past the first round.
