Strange year for hockey fans. I must admit I'm glad it's back. Of course I'm a flyer's fan and we seem to be STOCKED this year! That aside, I'm not sure everybody, even former fans, really missed it. whatdaya think?

Yeah I'm glad Hockey is back. I'm a Senators fan and the Sens are about the only team more stacked than the Flyers. That is if the Dominator has another season left in him.

I refuse to watch hockey when it's 25C and sunny... ie, early fall and late spring, with the exception of the last few series before the Cup. Having said that, I will watch the Penguins to see how Sidney Crosby does.

The Sens were very strong on offense and defense last full season, with a very young core of stars. A year and half of maturity with help a lot an Dany Heatly was a great aquisition. Hasek is about the best goalie of the last 15 years, He's won NHL MVP twice. Like I said, if he brings his "A" game the Sens will be tough to beat.

I, for one, am looking forward to the new season. I am a born again fan after giving up on hockey since shortly after the first expansion from the original six. The last few years I have become a fan of the Ottawa Senators whose style of play is reminiscent of the Canada - CCCP series of the good old days. This is the way hockey used to be played and hopefully this season with the new rules in play and with some of the technical changes being made we will see a return to REAL hockey as opposed to the clutch and grab hackey we've been exposed to of late.

Happy???? Are you kidding me???? At last there's something worth reading in the local paper again -- GO STARS!!!

I was absolutely THRILLED to see the whole first page of the sports section (well, almost) devoted to the most important questions of the day -- Will this be Turco's last season? What are the rookies bringing to the game after a year off? What's Modano's story anyway? These are the things inquiring people want to know!!

'Unadorned and unadulterated thuggery masquerading as sport. A sickening spectatcle.' -- You're so right, Strollin' Johnny -- Ain't it GREAT! But at least hockey has some semblance of order to its particular brand of thuggery. ;-) Can't wait to see what the new rules bring to the game -- they're promising more speed and more goal opportunites . . . Ooooooh, I can't stand it. DROP THE BLOODY PUCK ALREADY!!!

Besides, I swore off Guinness when the strike started . . . Can't wait to have my first sip tonight, along with the traditional Opening Game Bowl of Homemade Chili. What else is there to live for?

All the best (especially to my fellow hockey fans - you know who you are!), Áine

OK Jack I have an idea...a small wager...no money, just pride. I like my Flyers and you like your Senators. The bet is this, whoever's team goes furthur wins the bet. The loser has to re-open this thread sometime next Spring and enter a post singing the praises of the winner's team. Aine seems pretty proud of her Stars, she may want in also. Just for fun, and bragging rights! whatdaya think?

Canucks are gonna be TOUGH to beat this year.
The Flames will be good as well. Whoever picks that Flames will have the best shot in this pool. They made the finals last season and have improved their roster.
Detroit will have a tough time with the new salary cap. They have to change the nature of their team.
I'm in the Pool though with an side bet of the same with Pseudolus on Sens v Flyers Its likely that one will be settled in the Eastern Conference Finals.

I think they should build wider rinks, like they had in the last Olympics. Man, watching those guys skate on that big ice was fantastic--poetry in motion! I'd go back to watching the NHL if they did that. It would be like watching the Canadiens in the old days.

We've had an addition.....

Pseudolus - Flyers
Aine - Stars
Jack the Sailor - Senators
Bobad - Senators (We can double up can't we!)
Beer - Red Wings

And a slight modification due to Beer's suggestion, the first one out will have to eat crow and explain in a post why the rest of the teams still in it were better than theirs! And of course the original wager with Jack the Sailor and Pseudolus will stay the same.

Now what was up with last night, the Flyers were cruising with a 3-1 lead and it fell apart! I'm still confident, it's only one game! It's not too late to join in the fun folks, pick your team and be proud! Penguins fans? Rangers? Canadians? OK, good thing I'm typing cause I couldn't have asked that last question with a straight face!

Good Luck all,

The Leafs lost because of the one biggest mistake in the history of hockey, the shootout. It completely disregards the TEAM efforts of the previous 3 periods and OT, and reduces the "game" to 2 players per side at a time. It's unfair, anticlimatic, assistless scoring. It ignores the team sport concept that one extrememly dominant player can be handicapped by his own team, or matched by multiple players on the opposing side. I'd rather see my own beloved Leafs go down to defeat the old way than win by shootout.

Last night's game should have been a tie at the end of three periods. The only other reasonable solution is a no tie league where sudden death limitless OT decides the game.

Otherwise I'm happy hockey is back.

Peace, Mooh.
