Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the first airing of the Simpsons. On December 17th, 1989 Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and the rest of the gang debuted on TV. It was almost cancelled after the first episode, because the animation wasn't great, but David Silverman produced the second episode and the rest is history.
The San Jose Sharks weren't around in 1989, while the Oilers were in the middle of a season that would end with their 5th Stanley Cup in seven seasons.
How times have changed. The Sharks have the second longest active playoff streak at 10 seasons, while the Oilers are already eliminated from the playoffs (not mathematically, but realistically) for a ninth straight season, despite only playing 32 games.
It could get ugly in San Jose tonight.

For the past couple days, the Internet has been abuzz with the idea of Taylor Hall being on the trade market. Whether he's actually available for trade seems to be irrelevant. People are convinced he's leaving town, and there's no shortage of trade possibilities being thrown out to the Universe (Matt Henderson wrote about it this morning). It seems like everyone with a Twitter account is throwing out trade scenarios, and ideas about where Taylor Hall will end up. Will he even be traded? We can't know for sure. For now, I want to know what you would do.
