Wow, what a short off-season. The Oilers should make it to the finals every year!

I'm really excited about this year. The Oilers have solid goaltending and a more potent offence. A much better team than we dressed at the start of last year.

I'm part of a hockey pool this year,which will make the up coming season worth to follow all season long while reading the boxscores after each morning to see how my selected players have done.

Go Habs Go!!!

Lidstrom's gonna make a hell of a captain, though.

Well, I guess we'll see how Roloson will handle the load for a complete 82 game season. Getting hot in the playoffs and taking your team to the finals is one thing BUT starting 55-65 games then starting every game in the playoffs is a completely different animal altogether.

And, Pronger not being there will have a bigger impact than most anticipated.

I'm getting excited for the new season, but I'm also a little nervous about Vancouver's dynamics.

The team is very different from last year, which is definitely a good thing. I'm looking forward to seeing how Luongo will do, as well as the new players.

Thank god for HNIC! It's almost time for me to switch my ring tone back to the theme song!

I still say they didn't win that one fairly.

Anyway, let's hope the Wings can recoup and get their stuff together. I'm beginning to feel like it's 1992 all over again - great regular seasons, choking come playoff time.

I'm a Habs fan so by the looks of things, I'm not holding my breath this year.

Will be interesting to see if Huet was a one-off or if he really is all that....

I can't get into hockey as much as last year - perhaps the World Cup this summer sucked all my sports enthusiasm (what a rush!) and last year's hockey season was after an absence of 2 years...

I have to agree with you there - last year I wasn't that into it thanks to the long wait in between seasons. The lockout really left a sour taste in a lot of people's mouths, mine included.

Going to that pre-season game a couple of weeks ago was fun, though, and reminded me why exactly I love the game in the first place.
