FanSided NHL Recap September 6th


Time to gear up for the regular season loyal readers.  Training camps are about to begin, and with today being Labor Day, we all know that signifies that the long summer is almost over!  No more drama about Kovy!  Howwever there’s still drama about pending free agents, and where teams will be expected to finish, but at least it seems like we can start to get down to business.

Here are some of FanSided best posts from our NHL network from last week.  Enjoy!
