It has been a couple of long weeks since we talked last. Sam had a conversation with Jameson Olive of the Florida Panthers about the team. This was before Thomas Vanek was added and was during their little win streak. While the talk may be a bit dated, the content is not as they try to take a deep dive into certain players on the team, including Derek McKenzie, Aleksander Barkov, Jaromir Jagr and so much more.

Sam was joined by Adam today to talk about the league news and then joined by Daily Faceoff Editor-In-Chief Brock Seguin to talk Red Wings, Fantasy Hockey, and Gilmore Girls.

The World Cup of Hockey is finally here. After multiple preliminary matches and plenty of intrigue, the time to play is now. Team USA faces off against Team Europe and with it comes the first match for John Tortorella and company. Will they get off to a fast start? Do his scratches leave a lot to be desired? Does Team Europe have enough fire power?

Team USA is coming in with a plan for the World Cup of Hockey.
It may not be a very good plan but it is, indeed, a plan.
Coach John Tortorella doesn't care how his team wins as long as it happens.
If you are a fan of Team USA, that has to give you a special tingle down your spine. Sure, he may take patriotism to an uncomfortable level... but by the same token it adds a level of stakes that shouldn't be associated with an exhibition tournament.
The NHL has to absolutely love it.
As the tournament begins on Wednesday, I want to take a look at the five fun storylines to watch for from Team USA.

That's how long James Wisniewski played for the Carolina Hurricanes before tearing his ACL. He was subjected to two trades before, coming from the Ducks via the Blue Jackets. He wasn't able to stick at either club and various reasons were given to why he didn't stick. His contract was a bit of an albatross due to his 5.5 million dollar cap hit, which given his production wasn't as terrible as it sounds. After being bought out by the Hurricanes, where exactly does Wisniewski go next?
