So I came across the NHL.com article (https://www.nhl.com/...ounced/c-778411) regarding this and was surprised by a couple items.  First off, Adidas has taken over as the uniform supplier for all teams.  Has Nike completely abandoned hockey? I remember they owned Bauer at one point...but then sold it?  Help me out hockey gurus, its been a while for me.  Second shocker is that ESPN will televise games.  ESPN hasn't had much to do with hockey since the last lockout so I'm not sure how I feel about them trying to get back in now.  And you know ESPN wouldn't get in on this unless they anticipated some major star power taking part in the cup.

Yeah Nike sold Bauer like 6 or 7 years ago to a private equity firm. Now they are publicly traded under Performance Sports Group. Adidas is actually supplying NHL at the start of the 2017-2018 season.

In regards to the ESPN thing, can't help ya there. We don't get espn.

Kessel and Okposo should have been on it.

 

I was Team NA before this started though. Far and away the most fun team to watch. Auston McEichel.

Agree, Team NA was really fun to watch playing. One of the best "natural promotions" of the game of hockey in a very long time.

 

Finland will be soo dangerous in a few years.... 

 

Damn how weak Sweden played, with their stacked lineup...
