Across the United State, Labor Day weekend signals the transition from summer to fall and for those with school age children the restart of the regular routine. But for hockey fans, Labor Day is also the final mile post in the offseason before NHL training camps start up about one week later.
With Monday likely to be the usual quiet holiday at Canes and Coffee, we will hold off on the deeper dives on training camp/preseason topics until Thursday when our 2017-18 coverage kicks off in earnest.
The Monday Coffee Shop offers preseason lite topics, a request for reader feedback on preferred training camp topics and also an open forum for whatever other topics people want to bandy around.
