It's almost like the draft is next weekend...

Having 5 weeks between each Game to drag the Finals through the end of June was certainly a bizarre choice

They definitely made some . . . uh . . . choices with this schedule.

I get that, but I've heard reporters say the NHL tries to discourage teams from making deals during the finals so as not to "distract from the finals".  But I agree with other comments on here, stupid of the NHL to drag this series out.  Right from the first game that they delayed for almost a week was an idiotic decision.

That's the problem. If this goes to a Game 7 the Finals end on June 24. The NHL playoffs started on April 20.  The draft starts on June 28 and ends on June 29th.  Free agency starts July 1st.

Having a week between the end of the playoffs and the start of the free agency period is stupid.  Making teams wait to make moves under a tight schedule like that is terrible scheduling.

Season should also start about 3 weeks earlier. Shouldn't be playing hockey into almost July.

There's also that extra day off between these finals games because of the heavy distance between Miami and Edmonton...that's almost an extra week at this point.

Seems like such easy things to do but the NHL refuses. Instead of starting hockey in mid-October why not push up the season start to late September? That 2 weeks alone would mean the finals would have been at this point on June 7th.

I think they'd have to get that by the NHLPA...what I'm saying is that I think this is all agreed upon with the PA, so it might not be the league.

Stupid Coyotes... Utah is going to sign all UFA defensemen considering they have zero signed.

Mittelstadt resigned with COL 3 x $5.75 = $17.25

Yeah. This one is curious. It's not like Detroit desperately needed to free up cap space or that Walman needed to be jettisoned. Guess we're waiting for the other shoe on this one.
