Happy Father's Day to all. It's not exactly Labor Day or Memorial Day, but it's a good excuse to barbeque and forget about things for a day before the hockey world takes the big plunge into the truly "silly season" tomorrow. In the coming three weeks... There will be trade rumors. They will drive you nuts. Staal? Nash? Is Evander Kane in play, even? Will they trade Suter's rights? Etc. There will be signings. Too many of them. Will Parise and Parenteau spoil the party? We'll have a live draft thread Friday night leading up to the Stars' selection at #13 (or sooner?) Seven more picks on Saturday morning. A live discussion thread. Posts on each one. Draft wrap-up posts, quotes, videos, and anything else we can post about the eight newest Stars. The Stars will hire a new assistant coach. The NHL schedule will be released. RFA's will be tendered offers (or some won't) The NHL Awards show will amaze and bore you. Development camp will be held in Frisco from July 5th to 12th. Busy, busy, busy. So go have a beer with your Dad today and we'll get cracking tomorrow.
