I know I get really hype for the Community Shield because it feels like an opening ceremony for the Premier League. Do you think it could have the same effect for the NHL? I feel it would be fun this year with the Kings and Nucks facing eachother.

Much of the proceeds from the Community Shield go to the charitable arms of the participating clubs, so a similar matchup during the hockey preseason might be an interesting idea. As a match, the Shield rarely disappoints, that's for sure.
