Hello all and welcome to the Island! ^^not ^^the ^^NY ^^one
For anyone familiar with it, this is the fourth time this event’s been run on r/hockey, and the third time by me. 32 teams enter, one team wins.
This year, we’ll be running it through July, with the Finals roughly coinciding with the start of the playoffs.
#Now, here's some ground rules:
>-**Keep all discussion within the r/hockey Survivor threads and approved threads on team subs.** Don't pester the rest of the fanbase.
>-**Be respectful.** Light-hearted banter and your standard trash talk is okay. Basically, just adhere to the first thing on the r/hockey sidebar.

At 18 years old, would you rather have Malkin or Eric Lindros?

Piggy backing off of a previous post about Thornton vs Lindros, I saw a couple people mention a "hypothetical Lindros" being better.
So I was wondering if an 18 year old Malkin and Lindros were available in the 2020 draft, who would you prefer? Considering that Lindros would likely not suffer the concussions and other injuries he had in the 90s, he would likely carve out a similar career to Malkin. I think it really comes down to Lindros' 1996 vs Malkin's 2012 peak and if you think Lindros would be a more consistent contributor
Why do the Blue Jackets, Panthers, Kings, Canadiens, Sharks and Blues not have ECHL affiliates?

Is there a reason behind why these teams don’t affiliate with an ECHL team?
There are 26 ECHL teams, one of which is independent (no affiliate). That leaves 6 NHL teams without an affiliate.
Isn’t it an advantage to have an ECHL team?
