Jon Stewart is back from vacation, and he’s not wasting any time going after one of his favorite targets: Fox News.
Daily Show correspondent Michael Che tries to find a safe place to report from.
As you’ve probably heard, rumors are flying that the NHL will be expanding in 2017 to Seattle, Las Vegas, Quebec City, and Toronto.
The first report came from the Vancouver newspaper The Province, which reported that NHL expansion to Las Vegas was a done deal. It was later denied explicitly by deputy commissioner Bill Daly.
Then, Sports Illustrated reported the aforementioned 4-team expansion, which has also been denied by the NHL. The NHL has also denied any current plans for relocating teams (aside from the Islanders to Brooklyn).
If this turns out to be true, the NHL will have 34 teams starting in 2017-18, probably 16 in the western conference and 18 in the eastern conference. I’m not sure how they’d break the divisions down, though– both Seattle and Vegas would fit in the Pacific, and both Toronto and Quebec would fit in the Atlantic. Maybe another realignment?
Anyway, I’ll let you all debate the pros/cons of each location to yourself. I personally have issues with Vegas and Toronto. Not sure Vegas would work, and I doubt a new Toronto can compete with the Leafs.
But here’s how the expansion draft has worked previously, in 2000, for two new teams:
Two players were taken from each team. Each team could protect either one goalie, five d-men, and nine forwards or two goalies, three d-men, and seven forwards. At least one unprotected defenseman had to have played in either 40+ games the previous season or 70+ games across the previous two seasons. At least one unprotected forward had to meet the same requirement. If a team protected two goalies, all unprotected goalies had to have played 10+ games the previous season, or 25+ games across the previous two seasons.Prospects, rookies, and 2nd-year players could not be taken by the expansion teams.
So, there you go. Remember none of this is official yet.
At some point, yeah. I kinda hit a major roadblock when I accidentally deleted the file I was working from. Heh.

Some interesting commentary from Crommunist, who is a Canadian black man on how he is treated by the Vancouver Police (Canadian) vs what’s going on in the US with Ferguson.
You should follow his twitter, though. I’m a fan.
“#There is no way there were six in a city #I’m going to look that up because I swear there is no way”
In Vancouver, where just six people were murdered in 2013, police are crediting specialized crime prevention programs for the record-low murder rate.
I will add that while there were only 6 homicides in the city centre of Vancouver, there were more in the suburbs of the city (25 homicides in Surrey).
