Hischier shoots versus Vegas

Devils Trade Series: Vegas Golden knights

Las Vegas has all the things I hold near and dear to my heart: degenerate gambling, cheap buffets, and professional hockey. Remember when everyone thought hockey in Vegas was going to be a bad idea?

DAB Trade Series: Arizona Coyotes

For today’s DAB trade series, we’re going to go down to the land of rattlesnakes, cactuses (or is it cacti?), and blown Mariano Rivera saves (I’m not over the 2001 World Series) in Phoenix, Arizona to look at the Arizona Coyotes. The Coyotes are coming off their strongest season in recent memory but fell just
