Anaheim Ducks just recently raised Paul Kariya retired jersey to the rafters (imo long overdue).
Here is classic example why head shots need to remove from the game, talented scorer removed from the game, impo because of a bully/borderline dirty player in Scott Stevens.

People talk about Vancouver being a surprise so far this year. While they are a lot more fun to watch, their record is almost identical to last year’s. Sixteen games into the season last year, Vancouver had eight wins, six losses and two overtime/shoot-out losses for 18 points. This year they are 9 - 6 - 1 for 19 points.
What I do find interesting is that everyone was worrying about where the offence was going to come from to replace the Sedins. After 16 games last year, Hank and Dany had combined for 13 points, or a .813 points per game average. So far this year in 10 games, Pettersson has 16 points himself. That’s a 1.6 PPG average, almost twice that of the twins combined.

I knew they had talented young players, the surprise for me was how quickly chemistry has happened.

This settlement impo is a f :cuss: ing joke, what little I watch of NHL games may very well come to an end. Since the league clearly doesn't give a damn about the players. If they did they would get head shots completely out of the game.

If the GM along with his office team, do their homework as well as Vegas did. They very well could repeat as Vegas did in there first season.
Almost being able to pick the cream of the crop in the league, since teams are limited on amount players they can protect.

NHL Expansion draft rules
Protected Lists
* Clubs will have two options for players they wish to protect in the Expansion Draft:
a) Seven forwards, three defensemen and one goaltender

b) Eight skaters (forwards/defensemen) and one goaltender

* All players who have currently effective and continuing "No Movement" clauses at the time of the Expansion Draft (and who to decline to waive such clauses) must be protected (and will be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits).

* All first- and second-year professionals, as well as all unsigned draft choices, will be exempt from selection (and will not be counted toward their club's applicable protection limits).

Player Exposure Requirements

* All Clubs must meet the following minimum requirements regarding players exposed for selection in the Expansion Draft:

i) One defenseman who is a) under contract in 2017-18 and b) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons.

ii) Two forwards who are a) under contract in 2017-18 and b) played in 40 or more NHL games the prior season OR played in 70 or more NHL games in the prior two seasons.

iii) One goaltender who is under contract in 2017-18 or will be a restricted free agent at the expiration of his current contract immediately prior to 2017-18. If the club elects to make a restricted free agent goaltender available in order to meet this requirement, that goaltender must have received his qualifying offer prior to the submission of the club's protected list.

* Players with potential career-ending injuries who have missed more than the previous 60 consecutive games (or who otherwise have been confirmed to have a career-threatening injury) may not be used to satisfy a club's player exposure requirements, unless approval is received from the NHL. Such players also may be deemed exempt from selection by the League.

Regulations Relating to Expansion Franchise

* must select one player from each presently existing club for a total of 30 players (not including additional players who may be acquired as the result of violations of the Expansion Draft rules).

* must select the following number of players at each position: 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders.

* must select a minimum of 20 players who are under contract for the 2017-18 season.

* must select players with an aggregate Expansion Draft value that is between 60-100% of the prior season's upper limit for the salary cap.

* may not buy out any of the players selected in the Expansion Draft earlier than the summer following its first season.

Should be good for the Canucks as well. Great choice by the NHL. No one cares about having Quebec in the league.

The team that could be hurt the most is the WHL Thunderbirds.

As for Quebec it is clear gary has no interest in any more Canadian franchises.

Added later: I have stopped watching nhl games, reason being the league & ownership don't give a damn about current and former players. Based on the joke of a settlement about concussions.

Oilers just fired their GM chiarelli. Good riddance. Katz should just clean house while he's at it. Nickolson, mac t, lowe...all those guys should go.

What about those who actually plays the game. All hockey players on the Oilers need to do is look at a team couple hundred kms south, to a team that actually wants to win games (how many #1 draft picks do they have).
impo only 1 player fits that on the current Edmonton Oilers line up, he's the one doing the most scoring.

So it's not always management that's the problem, if players don't give a damn if they win or lose or even put out there full potential. Night in & night out, team is going nowhere i.e current Edmonton Oilers.
