At the other end was Tampa Bay, which spent 10 seasons mostly at the bottom of the standings with just one playoff berth. The Lightning are the defending back-to-back champions now, with three titles overall, but it took time and investment to finally get there.

The building -- constructed under the original roof of the Seattle Center Coliseum -- will likely have a final price tag of more than $1 billion. Construction included supporting the 44 million-pound historic roof on temporary supports while dirt was dug out of the former bowl to create a massive increase in space to roughly 800,000 square feet.
Serious Cup contender. The Panthers posted their best points percentage ever, and were tied for their best-ever goal differential in the 2021 season, despite playing in a brutal division. There's no reason to believe Florida can't build off of that, but the goal now is simple: make it past the first round of the playoffs, which the Panthers haven't been able to do since 1996.Seattle Kraken for NHL Face Masks

Samsonov's sophomore season was rocky to say the least as his stats declined to a .902 save percentage and 2.69 GAA. There have also been some disciplinary issues, but when Samsonov was able to return from the NHL's COVID-related absence list in the playoffs, he put together some of his best performances. In those three games, he played like the No. 1 the team had always expected him to be.

Keep in mind that this will be a one o’clock local start time and the afternoon temperatures in San Francisco will be around 70 degrees, which is a bonus. Another bonus, of course, will be facing Jon Lester, who has allowed a home run in each of his last seven starts and in nine of his last 10. The 37-year-old veteran of 16 MLB campaigns barely qualifies as a “crafty lefty” anymore.

Career earnings: $208,955,382 Career stats: 24.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 6.5 apg and 43.3 3PT% in 12 seasons Players drafted right ahead of him: James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn It's rare where you can call a player taken in the Top 7 a draft-night steal, but whenever you land an all-time great, a league-altering superstar, a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer and a two-time league MVP outside of the Top 6, you can safely call that selection a steal... especially when two of the players drafted ahead of him hardly had a drink of water in the Association before their NBA careers ended. That's what the Golden State Warriors were able to get in 2009 when they drafted Stephen Curry No. 7 overall, and the franchise, three championships later, has to be thanking their lucky stars to this day that that draft unfolded the way it did. After all, for the Timberwolves, who badly needed a star ball-handler at the time, to draft not one, but two point guards with the two selections before Curry in Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn, is borderline unfathomably lucky for Golden State. Jrue Holiday was another steal from the 2009 class, going 17th overall, but there's no doubt Curry was the top steal from that year.

Who is House? The Georgia prepster entered last summer as the top-rated high school player, then struggled against good competition on the showcase circuit, but has climbed back up draft boards this spring and ranks as McDaniel's No. 5 prospect. He has a grade 80 arm that hit 95 when he pitched, plus 30-homer potential and the skills to play shortstop, although some scouts think he eventually ends up at third base or right field. The biggest question is the contact ability in getting to his power.San Diego Padres Face Masks

Suter becoming a free agent should get the attention of the Bruins. They need a top-four defenseman of his caliber and he plays the left side of the blue line. The B's don't have a ton of trade assets (primarily due to a weak prospect pool) to acquire this kind of defenseman, so getting one in free agency is definitely preferable.
The Bruins, like the Avalanche, have several key players about to become free agents.

“It is mainly a parochial hockey thing. But the Canadiens remain the closest thing there is to it, and there are stories throughout the country of families that developed a special bond to this team. As for any social elements, other than sheer fandom, that would explain why the Canadiens are not embraced more than they are, you could speculate that a certain anti-Quebec sentiment might sometimes be in play, not to mention the perennial French-English duality, but I would not draw conclusions based on that. There is not one big overarching argument that would explain it.”Anaheim Ducks for NHL Face Masks

The deal is a win for Carlo for several reasons, too. The biggest one is the term. Six years gives him plenty of security and protects against injury, which is one of the main risks of this contract from the Bruins' perspective.
