NHL Offseason Discussion
By ‘rematch’ I mean a return to the Stanley Cup Finals, but using the Tampa Bay Lightning as the standard to grade them against is a fun exercise with surprising results.

He may be young, but the Stars’ 2017 first-rounder is more than capable of stepping up to the plate.
Does this deal mean that the Devils can officially be named the team that won the off-season? What does it mean for Dallas?
Trades, buyouts, and waivers are all business decisions. Offer sheets are personal, but they shouldn’t be — and they should be used more.
