With a couple weeks left in the season, the noise about playoffs and the draft is becoming hard to ignore. As we all know by now, the top half of the league starts making moves before the trade deadline and the bottom half starts gunning to be the NHL’s Next Edmonton Oilers.

After years of speculation, the American Hockey League is finally moving westward. At a press conference today in San Jose, the league and several team officials announced the relocation of five East Coast franchises to California, creating the long-awaited Pacific Division. The ECHL will also receive a bit of a shake up, with some California teams moving east to start playing in the soon-to-be former AHL markets.
You drop whatever amount a ticket is in your respective city. $100 $200 $800 whatever the hell it is. You spend good money on a personalized sweater.

You see what happens when there's no NHL to look forward to! We're joined by Steve Gunn to talk about documentaries, Peter Pocklington, the Edmonton Oilers arena situation, NHL 13 and more.
We chatted about Canadian politics a bit, and Steve mentioned this site, Shit Harper Did.
