Bit of a slow afternoon as we wait for Game 2 of the Western Conference Final in Chicago, so here are some fun player props to mull over and discuss in the comment section, courtesy online bookmaker Bovada:
What team will Jason Spezza be on for game 1 of the 2014-2015 season?
Ottawa Senators 2/1
Any Other Team 1/3
What team will Dion Phaneuf be on for game 1 of the 2014-2015 season?
Toronto Maple Leafs 1/3
Any Other Team 2/1
What team will Nazem Kadri be on for game 1 of the 2014-2015 season?
Toronto Maple Leafs 1/5
Any Other Team 3/1
What team will Dave Bolland be on for game 1 of the 2014-2015 season?
Toronto Maple Leafs 1/1
Any Other Team 5/7
Will the Florida Panthers Trade the First Overall Pick in the 2014 NHL Draft?
On that last one, we wrote earlier today about the 2014 draft being a potentially busy one in terms of trades. And Panthers general manager Dale Tallon did say earlier this month that he would “definitely” be shopping the top pick, so maybe there’s some value there.
Actually, there may be a Tallon connection to at least two of those props, since some believe the former Blackhawks GM will pursue former ‘Hawks player Bolland in free agency.
