It has been said that there are 4 seasons in an NHL year: pre-season, regular season, post-season, and the offseason. I always find that when the post-season draws to a close, that the offseason seems to drag on. Does the NHL offseason seem to dragging to you or is it just me slowly going crazy all by myself?
It is the offseason that goes on and on and on my friends. Some people start explaining what it is and still it goes on and on until slowly October catches us all by surprise as the anthems are sung and the puck is dropped.
On a happy note: The calendar has turned to August meaning that training camp is merely 6 weeks away edging us ever closer to the regular season. Before we know it the game that drives us crazy and begins endless debates between fans will return.
Simply put hockey fans, I miss watching my favourite sport. Soon October will be here and we will finally get to see how the re-alignment will look, be taken by surprise when the 2014 Winter Games begin and be captivated not by one but by SIX outdoor[stadium] games!
One last note: Congratulations to the Canucks first round draft picks: Bo Horvat and Hunter Shinkurak on signing their ETC’s [entry level contracts] this week, hopefully you will both get a chance to play with the team next year!
