There were a lot of surprises in the NHL this summer. Sal and Tim compare eight big NHL news stories from the offseason, trying to determine which in each of these pairs was the crazier story:

Patrick Roy quitting as Avalanche coach
vs.
Randy Carlyle being re-hired as coach of the Ducks

Las Vegas getting an expansion team
vs.
The return of the World Cup of Hockey

P.K. Subban – Shea Weber trade
vs.
Taylor Hall – Adam Larsson trade

Jimmy Vesey free agent sweepstakes
vs.
Steven Stamkos re-signing with the Lightning

After that, we keep whittling it down until we agree which story caught took us by surprise the most.

Total Time: 1:07:56

Theme music by Jim “Not the Goalie” Howard.

So, what do you think? What do you believe was the most surprising news story in the NHL this summer? Do you agree or disagree with Sal and Tim’s consensus? Leave a comment and let us know! ■
