OH SHIT, we finally got an NHL team? No joking, I had no idea..... apparently I've been living under a rock.

Well GO KRAKEN! I hope we have an enforcer on the ice.... cause that 'let's go kraken' is pretty catchy if we have a guy who can throw down.

I mean we are going to need this as the M's are doing their normal just coming up short and now the Seahawks are making it clear they are nowhere near a playoff caliber team. At least we have NHL in the city to bide our time until next spring.

Is this site going to actually add the icon for this team by regular season at least? I mean they've had the logo for quite a while now and it's not there yet.

In the NHL index. There are still the other 31 teams, but ours hasn't been added yet.
Yes no board added yet. I'm no hockey guy, but isn't there a realignment of divisions taking place also?

I meant the team icon. You know, down below your avatar.

I doubt there will be a big need for the team board, but I'd like to dump the M's for now lol. I didn't see the option to pick it.

Yeah, they're going back to the divisional set-up they had prior to last year, but the realignment is merely moving the Coyotes to the Central Division so the Pacific can make way for us.

Well we're pretty terrible so far lol... seriously though, 5 away games to open the season (all different teams obviously)? It's been some time since I watched hockey but is that normal?

I'm assuming it happened because the "Green AF" Arena was going to come right down to the wire on being ready for the season so they put them on the road for a week and a half as a buffer.

Actually had nothing to do with the arena. Canucks just opened with 6 straight road games. Their first home game is like tomorrow I think.

No, it's not that unusual to have stretches at home or away. It actually makes for less travel going from city to city instead of home between each.

It's a work in progress but need a goalie as their top pick in next years draft. Scoring has been good and continue to work on the defense.

Hmm. Maybe it was the Colorado Defense that made Grubauer a Veniza(top Goalie) contender last year,,,,,,

Possibly or maybe just a slow start but either way a top goalie from the draft is what should be needed.

Bit early to declare that isn't it? :noidea:
Gru has had a few clutch games with major saves.
They still are working on an identity and trying to string 3 good periods together.

If your goalie was giving up cheap shots I'd agree, but I haven't seen it.

Also keep in mind their #2 goalie has been out so Gru has played in more games than they had planned to this point.

All of their lines are still learning how to gel. I'll give them at least to mid-season before deciding what kind of team this is.
