We did this last summer, and we think it went quite well. So we’re doing it again!

For each of the first 30 days of August, we’ll turn our focus to one NHL team. We’ll write about what it’s done, what it hopes to do, how it plans to do it, and whether it has a good chance of succeeding. We’ll look at one of that team’s young players who’s looking to make the leap, either from amateur to pro, or from inconsistent project to consistent contributor at the NHL level. Who will be under the most pressure in 2014-15? We’ll identify one candidate for each team. And there will be a daily poll for you, the reader, to vote on.

Following is the schedule for all 30 teams. This year, we’re starting with the Western Conference (Aug 1-14) and finishing up with the East (Aug 15-30).

Fri, Aug 1 — Los Angeles Kings
Sat, Aug 2 – Winnipeg Jets
Sun, Aug 3 – Calgary Flames

      Yes siree, blomfeld. Fitting way to kick off August. After these 30 articles there will be ~19 days left to the start of training camp. In the mean time still plenty of summer to enjoy.

        “In the mean time still plenty of summer to enjoy” … Joey / PHT commenter ‘extraordinaire’ !

        That’s the spirit friend ! Let us relish every ‘God-given’ day & season to the ‘fullest’ and make the most of everything we encounter, while always being mindful of leaving such things in a ‘better’ way than when we first met them ! :)

    Would you mind just skipping over the Jets? No one outside of Winnipeg pays attention to them anyway. It would just go a long way in helping me forget the fact that Kevin “one year, two way” Cheveldayoff has done virtually nothing besides sign Perrault in a division that in all likelihood got even better and more competitive. I think maybe I’ll just avoid this site altogether tomorrow.
