Oilers second behind only Penguins for 2018 Stanley Cup odds in most recent Vegas update

Wilderness Walk: Wow

You may not know it, but the Drum Corps International championships were this weekend. While I was off drinking and relaxing in Northern Wisconsin, over 2,000 members gathered in Indianapolis, Indiana to compete in the championships. The talent on display is pretty incredible.

Storm Advisory for August 8: NHL News, Rumors, Links and Daily Roundup

Who has the best contract on the Hurricanes’ roster? And if you didn’t feel old already, Sidney Crosby hit the big 3-0 yesterday. Reading Assignments A couple of days ago, SB Nation looked at the worst contract by team for the upcoming season. Today, it’s the best contracts, including not only the Hurricanes’ entry but another former member of the team. [SBNation.com] Whether or not Chuck Greenberg purchases the Canes is still up in the air, but if he turns out to not do so, then he’s mastering the long troll expertly: Taking an informal poll. Does pass for a Triangle emoji?...

Rarely do hockey players maintain the same level of performance and production into their thirties. But Crosby isn’t done.

FTB: Sidney Crosby turns 30 and was drafted into the NHL 12 years ago

FTB: Sidney Crosby turns 30 and was drafted into the NHL 12 years ago

Today is Crosby’s 30th birthday. Let’s imagine where the Leafs will be when Auston Matthews turns 30. Sidney Crosby turns 30 years-old today. Does it feel to you like he is that old? Does it really feel like twelve years have passed since he was drafted back in 2005? Crosby is literally crossing a point today where there are fewer playing days ahead of him than behind. Yesterday was my birthday. I indulged in ribs and beer... it is a long weekend after all, at least for some here in Ontario. I look forward to many more days ahead here with PPP. I can’t help but wonder about the Maple...

Center of attention

Center of attention

Who will be the next 3rd line center for the Pittsburgh Penguins? A look at some potential targets The biggest defection still to be filled for the Pittsburgh Penguins is surely at the center position. The Pens have Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, which has been the best 1-2 punch down the middle in the whole league for a decade now, but then....Pretty much literally nothing. Nick Bonino left for richer pastures in free agency and Matt Cullen is still deciding if he and his family want another season in the NHL, and in Pittsburgh at that. Needless to say, it’s a cause for concern since...
