Speaking of cap circumvention, first goal of the 2023-2024 season scored by Kucherov.

Bedard won his first NHL game against the Pens. And who scored the game winning goal for the Hawks? The Dick, of course. Assisted by who? Corey *fargin'* Perry.

I see the young whippersnapper had a secondary assist so I can't make a bust joke. Annoying.

But he got molested in the face-off circle against Crosby and Malkin. 2/11 overall. The Hawks should move him on wing and promote the Dick to center the first line to show Bedard how to play the game.

He looked and sounded shockingly horrible last season. It sucks. Parkinson's is an awful disease.

Buffalo signs their other top draft pick to a long-term deal. Their two best d-men getting a combined $19 million until the 2030s.

Yup, I see the reasoning here about what's the new norm in the League: signing your top prospects to long-term deals with tons of $$ even when they haven't proven anything. The Sabres wanted to lock down their top 2 Dmen with the upcoming cap raise, this shouldn't hurt as bad as it seems. But where the Dahlin deal is fantastic for both parties, the Power deal could legitimately turn into the Nurse or the Seth Jones deal.

Maybe I'm too harsh because Buffalo is finally seeing the end of the tunnel. Levi can become their franchise goalie, Thompson and Cozens make a great 1C/2C spine, Tuch is a homer and a very underrated player, JJ Peterka is another good pick, I think they might contend within 2-3 years is they don't screw it.

Long-term deals are always a gamble for both sides. But the trend of signing young guys to long-term deals is way better than signing guys almost 30. Historically, it seems like most of the long-term deals for young guys work out pretty well.

Taylor Hall is already hurt and week-to-week now, which is terrible for Bedard's development/production as the Kunitz of that top line was already Ryan Donato LOL.

I’m sad to see Jeff Skinner abandoning Whitney Houston.

Funny idea if you're the Craig Ludwig type who is picking a song likely to only be played once every other season.

To add insult to injury, we're one game in and already Penguins coaches are talking about "teaching" Karlsson to play more defensively.

Reaves is an anachronism. He's the quintessential 1995 player who is worthless outside of hits and fights. Waste of money in today's game.
