ScuttlePuck Episode 11: NHL Eastern Conference Predictions. NHL Expansion?

In this week’s episode, Pete and I make our predictions for the National Hockey League’s Eastern Conference.  We also add a prediction based solely on last season’s Fenwick stats.  We discuss possible NHL expansion into Seattle and the sustainability of the Florida ScuttlepuckLogo_smlPanthers. The extraskater.com website went down this week and we speculate on reasons why.  The question for our listeners is who will win the Connor McDavid / Jack Eichel sweepstakes (ie. finish last in the NHL).  Send tweets using #scuttlepuck or email scuttlepuck@gmail.com.
