|The National Hockey League is refreshing, if for no other reason, because it’s the one professional sport where the name on the front of the uniform is more important to the players than the one on the back. Team play and camaraderie easily outweigh individual ego and selfishness in the NHL. To top if off every shift is played at 100% full speed – there is no sandbagging or taking plays off. The 2019-20 NHL season is upon us and with it you can enjoy a complete preview of where each team stands and its projected forecast, along with a detailed list of the Top 10 players at each position.

Friday Knight Lights
On the surface the Cincinnati Bearcats appear to an attractive home dog. Digging deeper we find a team that is just 2-12 ATS when seeking conference revenge. On the other side of the coin – and there is always another side of the coin – Central Florida sports an 8-0 ATS mark in weekday away games. With UCF in all-out mode to earn a New Year’s 6 Bowl bid, the once good looking home dog suddenly turns in to an ugly mutt.
