Has the season started yet? After Zach Parise and Ryan Suter landed in Minnesota (and promptly named alternate captains), it’s become a summer snoozefest for the NHL. The two big names still out there are Bobby Ryan and Rick Nash, and there seems to be more buyers than sellers now. Maybe this is what Scott Howson’s been waiting for all along, or maybe I’m just giving him too much credit. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see how contending teams fill the cap space they have.
