Like i already stated, the NHL needs to get Florida out of that state as fast as possible. Let them relocate to Utah, Seattle, Portland or Regina. That is really not a hard thing to do. Miami just doesnt need or want an NHL team. I think Utah would be perfect! That would be a natural rival to t...

Going to be a great tourney. Am i the only one who thinks that somebody out of the dark is going to win this thing? I just think that the grind of what has been a crazy good B1G season for the top teams will be too much. I could see a team like Illinois, Purdue or Penn St making a run. Beating a ...
