I wish Souray was coming to theIslanders. Souray + Bergeron together on power play just raining hate from the blue line would have been something to watch.

So is this possible: Every friggin Leafs game is sold out already? I wanted to get some Leafs/Habs or Leafs/Isles tickets, but according to ticketmaster EVERY FRIGGIN GAME is sold out? Or have they just not gone on sale yet. I'm confused.
Bergeron! I actually miss the guy. He had some serious size/defensive problems for the Oilers but always showed hints of brilliance. I think the Lowe got hosed almost giving him away to the Isles. I'm glad the Oilers got Souray. Yes, he was -28 but so was most of the team. Montreal was the worst 5 on5 team in the NHL last year. Koivu and Ryder had horrible minus numbers as well.

Red Wings have released shots of their "new" Rebok-powered jerseys. Thankfully, they have preserved the classic look. Not crazy about the white flap appearance of the bottom, but still, classic remains classy. Hope the Habs keep their similarly-done.

Boston still has my vote for the perfect jersey redesign so far.

The Red Wings' jersey looks pretty cool. Too bad the new Islanders' jersey doesn't. Someone please post a pic of that.

The new Isles jersey is ugly. Not this ugly, but pretty close!

Thanks for posting the new Isles' jersey. That other jersey wasn't so bad. You should've shown the fishstick jersey. That was worse.

So any Canadians out there jazzed up about the Super Series against Russia?

Canada won 4-2 this morning and things should heat up from here on in. I'm most interested in seeing this John Tavares kid who everyone is drooling over.

It obviously won't compare with the 1972 series but it's a great lead-in to the NHL season which begins in a month!

Breaking news:

Quote:
Toronto, Canada - A seven year old boy was at the center of a Toronto courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the
degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took
the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Toronto Maple Leafs, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

I thought I was the only one...

Another big win this morning. Man, this team has got some beautiful offensive-zone plays. That game could have been 7-0 if we could have finished more chances.

No, I'm excited about it, especially the last four games which take place in Western Canada, where the crowds are typically amazing for the World Jrs.

Good win today.

Less than two weeks until training camps open.

Vancouver Canucks unveiled their new logo this afternoon. These were the only pictures I could find:





I'm not totally sure what I think of them yet. They're definitely not as bad as I was worried they would be.

You can't really see it in these pictures, but there's a large green stripe at the bottom, which is kinda meh. I don't think "Vancouver" was really necessary, because I think we know what city we live in.

Overall I'm okay with the design - I'll have to find some better pictures. I watched the unveiling online, and the stupid video kept buffering, so I hardly got to see any of it.

ETA - found a couple better pictures:

Not sure what I think, either. Still hoping the Habs give their jerseys a similar treatment Boston got.

There would be a revolt if the changes are too drastic. I think the changes will be minimal.

I kind of like the new jerseys...a bit like soccer uniforms. They're certainly a vast improvement on past Vancouver designs.
