HAT TRICK!  Hartsy’s dream comes true, Chuck’s just a little butt-hurt, Marleau’s contract, NHL playoff predictions, and thoughts on Adidas jerseys

It’s the hat trick eppie from Chuck’s dungeon!

Welcome back to the fold.  Today, we had a lot to chirp about including:

  • Hartsy’s dream comes true (at the Easton Chiller, of all places)
  • Chuck gets just a little butt-hurt
  • Is Marleau worth $6.25MM/year for the next 3 years?  He is 38 years old coming into the season.  Hartsy predicts 25, 18, and then 12 goals over the next three seasons… Chuck says don’t worry about it.
  • We discuss playoff predictions for Western and Eastern conferences, and pick our Stanley Cup match-ups
  • Chuck weighs in on the new Adidas jerseys
