Default NHL Season starts soon!

My beloved (but beleaguered) Blues start the regular season with the Penguins on the 4th.

A lot of injuries already piling up and Allen has looked Shaky in goal in the pre-season. I love the Brayden Schenn pick up and hope some of the kids can step up. Maybe we can Jagr for some depth.

How do you feel about your teams chances this year?

Blackhawks fan. With all the roster turnover, have to take a wait and see approach but am cautiously optimistic. Main guys Panarin, Hjalmarsson, Hossa and Kruger all gone. Also Darling, Oduya, Campbell and some 4th liners gone. In are Saad and Sharp, some minimum salary FAs, plus a much re-worked defense, including a new back-up goalie. A few young guys, all forwards, to be excited about include Schmaltz, Hayden and Debrincat. Debrincat is a 19 yr old, 5' 7" smurf rookie who score 60+ goals three straight years in the OHL. I think the general expectation is to be one of the lower (i.e. worse) playoff teams.

Default Bruins

This SHOULD be an interesting season for the B`s. Finally a coach that wants to play some more open hockey and is in the position to at least trust his younger players for the foreseeable future. The fans are excited and the blend of veterans and newcomers should keep this squad in the top 4-5 teams conference wise all year. This Thursday is a Boston fan`s dream. looks like the Sox/Astros in the afternoon, Bruins opener at 7:00 and the Pats/Bucs at 8:30. On a side note, Belichick ALWAYS says the Sept version isn`t the Jan team but W O W, that`s they worst NFL defense I`ve seen in a while ! "long Live The Chief"

Leafs biggest issue is their defense. They did draft some kid from Sweden, but I am not sure if he made the team. Maybe they will let him play in the minors this year for conditioning. I have not been following this team during the off-season, but I sure hope they signed somebody who can help them back there.

It would also be nice if they could land a power forward to help the little guys on the front.

Not to worry, the Leafs have Gardiner!

Personally, I am not sure who is going to be strong? I seen some pretty good talent in the pre-season but I have no idea if those made the big clubs?

I want the Hawks to do well as I do the Kings, but truth be known, I will be rooting for the Leafs.

I think Edmonton will be strong and I think Nashville will be right there again, if both teams stay healthy, but I think there are going to be a few teams this year that surprise a lot of us?

Well, after one game the Red Wings looked surprisingly well, especially Mike Green, and the young guy Frk I have been dying to see on the big club. I think the addition of Trevor Daley to our D was good, he knows how to win, and should help the young D steady their play. They looked so bad last year, and are a salary cap mess with horrible contracts, but they looked better to start the season than I dared hope. Might have been a fluke, but it gives me a spark of hope. Mantha, Larkin, and Frk could be something. I hope they can solve their impasse with Athanasiou, but if it means paying too much, don't do it. Ken Holland is bad about that.

And in different news, former Red Wing Juri Hudler got in trouble on an international flight for demanding cocaine and pissing on a serving cart. That is really sad, I hope he gets the help he needs.
