Are reigning champions Colorado as strong as they were?

No matter how you spin it, losing Nazem Kadri and Darcy Kuemper was hardly the ideal way for the Avs to prepare for their first title defense since 2001, not least because their former center is in the form of his career and now taking up residence at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
The Pacific Division is shaping up particularly nicely. Connor McDavid's Edmonton Oilers are likely to push the Flames hard, though the Avs would do well to keep an eye out for threats closer to home, namely the Minnesota Wild, who have one of the meanest defenses out there.
While the three-peat ultimately wasn't to be for the Lightning, Jon Cooper's unit remains one of the strongest in recent NHL history, but the Carolina Hurricanes and Matthew Tkachuk's Florida Panthers are two teams on the rise and desperate to make their mark.
The National Hockey League was founded in 1917 at the Windsor Hotel in Montréal. At the time of its establishment, the four teams in the league were all Canadian—hence the word “national”—but the NHL expanded to the United States in 1924 when the Boston Bruins joined. Between 1942 and 1967, the league comprised six teams known as the Original Six. Those teams were the Boston Bruins, Chicago Black Hawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montréal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. The NHL doubled in size in 1967 to 12 teams, increased again to 18 teams by 1974 and there were 21 teams by 1979. In the years between 1991 and 2000, the NHL further expanded to 30 teams. The latest team to join the league was the Seattle Kraken in 2021, rounding out the NHL to 32 teams. But enough about hockey history. Here’s how to watch and stream hockey this season.

After a long offseason consisting of NHL draft drama, an astonishing signing and a blockbuster trade, the 2022-23 NHL regular season is finally here.
The NHL is taking its talents overseas and beginning the season in Prague, Czech Republic this weekend. The Nashville Predators and San Jose Sharks will play two games as part of the NHL Global Series, on Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 at the O2 Arena. This marks the first time the NHL has played games outside North America since 2019.
Following that, the action starts in North America on Oct. 11 with a doubleheader on deck, including a matchup between the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden and the Vegas Golden Knights at Los Angeles Kings.
Seeing as the Chicago Blackhawks are expected to be among the league’s worst teams this season, one should reasonably expect the franchise to trade veteran right wing Patrick Kane to a contender. For now, Kane and longtime teammate Jonathan Toews will begin the season in Chicago amid a rebuild. It’d certainly be interesting if Kane, who hails from upstate New York, found himself playing for the Buffalo Sabres.
Speaking of the Capitals, Alex Ovechkin sits 115 goals away from surpassing Wayne Gretzky’s record of 894 career goals. We can all agree Ovie isn’t likely to pass the Great One this season, but he can still set himself up to break the record during the 2023-24 campaign. However, Ovechkin turned 37 in September, so age isn’t exactly working in his favor, even after a 50-goal season last year.
