Boston Bruins trade Milan Lucic and Dougie Hamilton.
The season has barely been over since June 15th when the Chicago Blackhawks stopped the Tampa Bay Lightning in a Game 6 WIN at home in Chicago but all the while the rest of the NHL has been planning their own next moves to get their respective teams to a Stanley Cup as well. Just over 2 Weeks later & we have the Kings getting a powerful Milan Lucic to an already strong lineup. Let’s not forget Phil Kessel got dumped by the Leafs to his delight. Kessel is now a Pittsburgh Penguin which is a shot in the arm to the fan base. Young talent T.J. Oshie is going to the Washington Capitals who made strides in their own quest for the Cup this past season. Looks like these 3 teams are gearing up for another incredible year of NHL hockey.

It has been almost an entire week later and the NHL still hasn’t responded to the cowardly attack to Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik. Bruins Shawn Thornton has been suspended indefinitely which is justified but will there be more to come? In my opinion I think there should be. I don’t remember seeing a player go out of his way to attack another guy quite like he did.
