The Rangers at least have some hope with Alain Vigneault behind the bench. The Canucks have none of that with John Tortorella, whose head coaching career is almost certainly in its final weeks.
Hey, Jerry Reese, are you prepared for free agency? The Giants general manager has proven himself quite worthy when it comes to protecting the assets of the Mara and Tisch families, but that should not be his biggest concern.
They made a flashy move by bringing in St. Louis, but the Rangers are not in a position to contend for the Stanley Cup this year.

The Seahawks defense has the same kind of relentlessness that the Bears, Giants and Ravens had in their glory years. There is a lightning-like speed and viciousness that is common to all four teams.
It was Lamar Hunt who started the American Football League, and without his commitment and deep pockets, the NFL would never have had legitimate competition and would have remained a closed, old-boys club for many years.
