Interesting 

 

The percentage of NHL players who are from Canada has fallen to 46.1%, according to data collected by QuantHockey.com. Meanwhile, the percentage of US-born players in the NHL is up to 25.7%, its highest level ever.

The gap between the two nations (20.4%) is the narrowest ever. Just 16 years ago, the gap was 40.3%. Just three years ago, the NHL was still mostly Canadians, with over 50% of the players born above the border.

If the trend seen over the last few years continues, the NHL could be more American for the first time by 2028. In 11 years, US-born players are projected to be above 30% and their Canadian-born counterparts are projected to fall below 30% of all NHL players.

Wow.  Great piece of info.  Nice find.

Only when I don't have to see Britney Spears and Mariah Carey perform on NYE ever again. I'll throw in Don Lemon too!

“Good to go. All looks good, and I’ve got the green light,” Parise pronounced after a hard-skating, physical New Year’s Day practice at Xcel Energy Center. “I’m really excited. I’ve been looking forward to this for awhile. I’m glad it’s finally here. It’s been a lot of work, but I’m glad to get a chance to play (Tuesday).”

Looked like Murray was going to cry.

Murray is a classless punk!

Avs getting rid of Duchene was the best thing they could have done, Avs are improving and the Senators are garbage. 

To me looks like Duchene was a big part of the Avs problems. I really did want Roy to stay longer and see what he could do.
