I mean it’s nine weeks of not doing anything and you get into the first week of August and I ’m just getting out of a cast. You’ve got to let the bone Pietrangelo has never scored more than 51 points in a season , but with Kevin Shattenkirk no longer in St. Louis and a new offensive-minded coach, the

Call it a season of second chances in the Battle of Alberta. Smith, 37, certainly adds a new dimension to the Oilers with his ability to clear the puck and create scoring chances in the transition Rob Pizzo looks at which teams have the best chance to win Canada's first Stanley Cup since 1993.

Clichés and hockey have gone hand-in-hand since the first faceoff. From players talking about having a "good bunch of guys in the room," to coaches saying "our backs are against the wall," they're a dime a dozen. (See what I did there?)

Clichés really seem to take on a whole new level in the first week of the season, when the media can get overexcited like kids on Christmas morning.

Owners of Syrian restaurant Soufi's announce plan to re-open after hate mail and death threats

  Owners of Syrian restaurant Soufi's announce plan to re-open after hate mail and death threats The Toronto family forced to shut down their Syrian restaurant after a series of hate messages and death threats say they’re now working toward re-opening the business. Husam Al-Soufi made the announcement outside Soufi's, his downtown restaurant, alongside Mohamad Fakih, the Toronto businessman and founder of Paramount Fine Foods. "We're going to work together to re-open the door of this business," Fakih said, promising further details at a news conference scheduled for Thursday."This family should not lose their profitable, thriving business because of intimidation and hate.

But the one thing I like about the Blues winning the Stanley Cup in 2019? The team’s relationship with superfan Laila Anderson. It’s great to see Carolina back in the mix as a legitimate threat. I was absolutely wowed by that arena and the energy around the team during my time in Raleigh in the

And while I've been guilty of a few of them in my career, here is my list of things I hate hearing in the first week of the NHL season.

'He's on pace to ...'

This one has to die. I can live with this joke if someone has a huge season opener, but if a player has six goals in the first three games, Wayne Gretzky can rest easy knowing his record of 92 goals is still very safe. If anyone uses the word "pace" before the 50-game mark, I grit my teeth.

'He is in mid-season form'

This one seems to ONLY be used in the first week. At the mid-season point, a player is either "battling fatigue" or "still going strong." You could argue that players should be at their best early on in the season because they haven't been beaten up for 40-plus games. In the first week they are fresh, motivated and probably pretty healthy.

Partner of Bathurst shooting victim to testify at officer arbitration hearing

  Partner of Bathurst shooting victim to testify at officer arbitration hearing The common-law partner of an innocent man fatally shot by a member of the Bathurst Police Force is expected to be the first of 17 witnesses to testify at an arbitration hearing for two officers underway in the city.The hearing is examining the actions of Bathurst Police Force constables Patrick Bulger and Mathieu Boudreau. The two were involved in the death of Michel Vienneau on Jan. 12, 2015 at the Bathurst train station.

Luongo robs ex-teammate Jimmy Hayes and then taunts him afterward. Important to note that a few of these are due to very small temporary venues (Calgary like I noted in the graphic, Ottawa playing at the cozy Civic Centre before their new arena was built, and Hartford playing games temporarily at a

Rob Pizzo looks at which teams have the best chance to win Canada's first Stanley Cup since 1993. But the Blues, who went from last in the overall standings in January to winning the franchise's first title, pushed back late in the period and got the equalizer when Schenn beat Andersen between

'That's a goal-of-the-year candidate'

I get it, we have been hungry for nice goals all summer, so the very fact that a guy just dangled a few players before going top shelf on a goalie gets us pretty excited.  But a goal has to be very (VERY) good to guarantee we will still be talking about it after 1,271 games and thousands of goals.

'They find themselves in a playoff spot'

I remember I once started a round of golf with three straight pars (huge deal for a hacker like me), but I didn't break 100 that day. Sometimes even the worst teams in history can pick up a couple of wins in the first week, but remember: 82 games can change a lot.

'He's making his case to stay with the big club'

If a first-round draft pick with a lot of potential has a good start, I'm fine with this line. When someone is playing with the big club because of a few injuries and is clearly a placeholder, just stop it. We know he will be sent down any day now.

'He is already in the Hart Trophy conversation'

There are a handful of players who actually start the season as a Hart Trophy candidate (former winners, bona fide superstars, etc.) No disrespect to the Anthony Manthas of the world but I don't think he should be clearing a spot on his mantle just yet.

'This could be their year'

It's the first week of the season. It could literally be anyone's year every year.
