Yes. The Montreal Canadiens. Take a good look at my avatar and signature. Study them. Absorb their greatness. Learn from them. Become one with them. And, most importantly, love them. Then, and only then, can you begin to watch hockey.

As for players, there's Sidney Crosby in Pittsburgh and the entire Detroit Red Wings team. Steven Stamkos, a highly touted rookie, will light it up in Tampa Bay. The duo of Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews from the Chicago Blackhawks that I mentioned previously.

And there's Alexander Ovechkin in Washington. He's amazing; a veritable human highlight reel.

In that order? Can you make a bitch your bitch, I don't know. Is there some sort of geneva convention article that forbids international dog eating? I'm just wondering....Anitram would know.

I just read that Sugden got cut from the Isles (which is really sad when you consider it's he ISLANDERS that cut him). I was hoping he'd make the team. Aside from being an interesting fella, he absolutely pummeled Salvador at the pre-season game I went to last week. Looks like they'll go with Fritz as "Enforcer"- one doofy looking sumbitch.

So hockey starts today. I'd be more excited if my team wasn't universally expected to finish dead last. It's like even if they prove everyone wrong and finish 5th from worst....um...yay? We showed you...

I'm still excited, but it does dampen things a bit when you know the Islanders will not even be a playoff team....but, hopefully, we make strides and the future starts to look brighter.....

I know the feeling... as long as we're not dead last it will be a good year I'm thinking

Yeah, I am hoping they at least are a scrappy bunch of kids that make the game fun. I won't mind the losses so much if they lose like, 9-7 every night. But I know it's going to be like 9-1, and that's the part that bugs me. I am curious though. I don't think I've ever seen a team come up from such a youth movement - well Pittsburgh is doing it and they're fun to watch. But we don't have a crosby / malkin / staal.

Do you know if you're going to the New Year's Day game at Wrigley? That would be awesome! I would love to go.

Edmonton has been rebuilding for the last couple of seasons... same with Washington and Chicago, all of them have a lot of younger players.

You'd like to think that goaltending alone will keep them in a few games....we'll see.....and, while Okposo is hopefully the real deal, that's just one budding star, not three......
