The season ended two months ago, teams are pretty much done making their offseason moves. There’s nothing new to talk about in the hockey world. Everyone’s discussed what Jaromir Jagr is going to bring to the Flyers after three years in the KHL or how Brent Burns will help the Sharks powerplay.
So how do we get our hockey fix?
It’s warm during the summer and with longer daytime hours, you can play some puck outside, right? Maybe in the northern part of the continent, but this summer (for most of us) it’s been hot, humid, and not conducive to outdoor activities. Nobody wants to play, and those who do, skate for a few minutes and realize it’s too hot. Goalies refuse to suit up. When things cool off closer to September, people will come outside and hit the rinks again. But that still doesn’t help right now.
