The divisions have been adjusted back, there’s no chance of a Stanley Cup rematch and hockey is starting in October again. Yes that’s right it’s time for the 2021–22 NHL season. Leave the all-Canadian division and the play-in round in the past to welcome a full slate of games and a predictable season without disruptions that will definitely go exactly as planned.
Just kidding, we all know that chaos will still ensue; it’ll just (hopefully) be more of the standard chaos that makes hockey the beautiful game that it is. And there’s plenty of room for fun this year.
