Hockey is back!
That’s right, arguably, the greatest sport in the world will resume (free of lockout drama) Wednesday night, and I couldn’t be more excited.
This is absolutely crazy. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres got into a massive brawl in a preseason game on Sunday night that even included a goalie fight. And if you’re anything like me, you love a good goalie fight.
Gone are the days where Chicago Blackhawks fans can easily buy tickets to home games. After making the playoffs five out of the past six years and winning the Stanley Cup twice in four years, being shut out of tickets is to be expected for the normal buyer.
Straight off of a Stanley Cup victory, it was easy to realize who the Chicago Blackhawks should re-sign and who they should let go, and a few weeks into the offseason and five key re-signings, two trades, and two major releases later, the team’s management has perfectly executed what needed to be done.
