Today is election day in the United States and it also is the day that the NHLPA and the NHL are getting back to the table to hammer out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. If they are are able to come to terms soon, I wonder how much DIRECTV will reduce the NHL Center Ice package to. My best guess is that it'll be around $125.00 if the season starts around December 1.

When the NHL does return, expect the Minnesota Wild to get off to a fast start, thanks in large part to new acquisitions Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Parise and Suter will bring instant credability to a franchise that has languished for several years in a row. Add in soon to be Calder Winner Mikael Granlund and you've got a playoff contender. My official predictions are not ready yet, but I expect the Wild to finish around 3rd in the Western Conference.
Out East, I have no clue yet. My crack team of researchers is about halfway through breaking down the rosters and schedule, but it's not complete yet. All I know is that the Maple Leafs won't win the Cup...why break tradition, right?
