Discussion Questions

  1. What’s the Kings’ record in nationally televised games? It can’t possibly be good.
  2. Who, exactly, were the Wild trying to protect by trading Alex Tuch to the Vegas Golden Knights? And why?
  3. If you stacked all of the Staals end to end, how many Staal Brother Conglomerates would it take to cross the distance between Los Angeles and St. Paul?
