As usual, the talk of this matchup will dominate sports for the next week. In this matchup’s case, the hype is well deserved. Carolina vs. Denver will see two first overall picks, one a burgeoning superstar and the other at the very end of his Hall of Fame career, in a battle of the past and present. Our prediction? Levi Stadium’s grass has a say in the game’s outcome.

The John Scott Saga

Good grief…where do we even begin with this one? At first he’s voted an NHL All-Star captain by fans and then he is sent down to the minors, traded out of the division, and thus becomes ineligible to be the Pacific Division captain. However, the NHL bowed to popular demand and eventually allowed Scott to be the Pacific Division captain. To cap things off, Scott ended up being named the MVP of the All-Star Game after scoring 2 goals. You can’t make this stuff up folks.
