The NHL store has the THN Yearbook on sale. They need to get some Ryan McDonagh t-shirts. Its all Kreider and Nash. I already have Kreider. If there is a lockout,the NHL can't sell merchandise with a player name and number.

Pittsburgh are the NHL darlings. Everyone loves them. Shero spent big dollars on Martin and Michalek in 2010. Michalek is already gone. If Pitt had acquired another D,Martin would have been shipped off too. Pitt played without Staal for the 1/2 of 10-11 when Jordan had the foot injury. They're still going to miss him. Sutter is a good player. He is better suited as the 3rd line center than being the 2nd center in Carolina.

THN has Carolina finishing 9th. They haven't made the playoffs since 2009. Its 4 years in a row if they miss again. It will only get worse for them in realignment. Carolina will be in the Rangers,Pitt,Philly,NJ,Caps and Isles conference. 4 teams make the playoffs. That's how the proposal by the NHL has it setup. It will be part of the CBA stuff. Carolina spent $13M to bring in Staal and Semin to miss the playoffs. Karmanos won't be happy.
