This

I got the notification on my phone, "Edmonton trades Taylor Hall to NJ...", and I was all like,"YEAH!!!" I click on the notification and read, "in exchange for Adam Larsson", and I'm all like "NOOOOOOO!!!".

It seams like a pretty good trade for both teams. Oilers need help on defense, Devils definitely need help on offense. A first overall pick for a fifth overall. You have to give to get so they say. Edmonton fans on twitter seem to think they got robbed but I think they will be pleasantly surprised.

I am not too surprised by Stamkos resigning with the lightning. They are so close to being a championship team and they are a known quantity to him.

Why Montreal would trade PK just boggles my mind.

Penguins claim fourth Stanley Cup with 3-1 win over Sharks

I have seen a lot of debate on Crosby winning the CS. Surprisingly, as much as I hate the Crosby hype machine, I actually don't think it was a bad choice. I would have loved for Kessel to win it just to see if the Centre of the Hockey Universe would have imploded.

For the first time ever in my years as a Devils fan, I know that that this year they are going to suck. I will still watch though I won't use "there's a Devils game on tonight" as a reason to not attend a social function.
