And it bears repeating that no one will touch the Wolves.*

That's true. I like Washington. I haven't seen Edmonton or Chicago play too much. I was under the impression that they sucked though.

I think Snow is going to be making some trades at the deadline for more youth. Send some vets as a rental for the playoffs or something.



As for goaltending....DP has moments of brilliance, no doubt, but he needs to calm the fuck down and play some hockey. He says he idolizes Brodeur - but he plays NOTHING like brodeur.

Chicago will be vastly improved this year. Watch out for them.


Also, snowbunny is the GM of the Islanders???

Did they have the rookie of the year last year? Are they the team that doesn't show games on TV?



If she is - why the fuck am I still paying for those shitty season tickets? WTF?

Yes. They have Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith. Now they have Cristobal Huet and Brian Campbell, and if Martin Havlat can stay healthy, watch out for them!

Under the ownership of the late Bill Wirtz, they didn't show any home games on TV because he believed that would affect attendance. This policy, among others, alienated fans and actually drove them away.

Since he passed away last year, his son Rocky has taken over and they've been trying to reconcile with the fans. They've even brought back Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita as ambassadors after years of having nothing to do with the team during the Bill Wirtz years.

The Blackhawks were fun to watch last season, and should be even more so this year......

Awesome game for the Canucks last night! It was a lot of fun to watch - I've missed hockey, and am so glad it's back!
