The Penguins (the team I generally follow) are here in St Louis just once again this year. Looks like Detroit is here on my birthday. We've gone the past two years for my birthday, so I guess I'll be seeing that one!
I think Bobby Hull was named the commissioner of the league, and then it dropped from the news entirely. I have a hard time believing that after the NHL takes thirty teams worth of players there will be enough talent left to run a second viable league.
