This

I got the notification on my phone, "Edmonton trades Taylor Hall to NJ...", and I was all like,"YEAH!!!" I click on the notification and read, "in exchange for Adam Larsson", and I'm all like "NOOOOOOO!!!".

It seams like a pretty good trade for both teams. Oilers need help on defense, Devils definitely need help on offense. A first overall pick for a fifth overall. You have to give to get so they say. Edmonton fans on twitter seem to think they got robbed but I think they will be pleasantly surprised.

I am not too surprised by Stamkos resigning with the lightning. They are so close to being a championship team and they are a known quantity to him.

Why Montreal would trade PK just boggles my mind.

NHL Playoff Pick 'Em Champion: NoMich

Well turns out I don't have either one anymore, NoMich. I emailed rcade and requested he forward your info to me if it is okay with you. But if you are the kind of guy that turns down free food then I will puchus a crossbow instead.

Penguins claim fourth Stanley Cup with 3-1 win over Sharks

I have seen a lot of debate on Crosby winning the CS. Surprisingly, as much as I hate the Crosby hype machine, I actually don't think it was a bad choice. I would have loved for Kessel to win it just to see if the Centre of the Hockey Universe would have imploded.

The NHL Season Begins Anew!

For the first time ever in my years as a Devils fan, I know that that this year they are going to suck. I will still watch though I won't use "there's a Devils game on tonight" as a reason to not attend a social function.

The Yahoo! league ended at the end of the regular season.

Btw, congrats to tron7 and owlhouse for finishing with a 135-115 record against the spread. tron7 wins via tie breakers. Team "Shouldabeen" (SpoFi username unknown) wins the Costanza for having the worst record, 105-145, of everyone who made picks every week. No Danny No! (rcade) placed 11th, going 123-127.

If somebody sets it up I'm in for a straight up pick-em or confidence points pool for the playoffs.

Valiant effort though, Scotty.

Only three people above .500 after week three. Is the NFL that unpredictable this year or are the odds makers just really good at what they do?
