30 mins til it starts! Woohoo, Pierre et Yvon I've missed you!

Go Habs!

In other news, just read Heatley signed on with the Sens for another 6 years (minus, of course, the two months during the playoffs in which he disappears)

Know what's really lovely? I, along with half of Metro Detroit, don't get the station that currently has rights to half of the Wings games.

Question to all you hockey folks: Are the Flyers any good? Weren't they really terrible last year?

I honestly don't know, I don't really follow the hockey.

That sucks. Doesn't Chicago not televise any of the Blackhawk games? Stupid.





Philly should be good this year. They added a couple of real good guys - Daniel Breire is one of the best. Probably won't win the cup, but they should do ok.

Time will tell, of course, but they should be markedly better than last year. Off the top of my head they got, via trade before the deadline or free agency this summer: goaltender Martin Biron, Kimmo Timmonen, Scott Hartnell, Joffrey Lupul and Daniel Briere. So yes, on paper they should be a heck of a lot better, maybe even compete for the top two spots in the Eastern Conference.

Biggest improvement for the Flyers? Bobby Clarke is no longer (that we know of) running the show.

Well, I'll join in and help too ... if I can talk about the minor leagues.

Whether pros or minors ... Hockey IS Hockey !!

Yeah, but it's the Hawks so who really cares?

Wings win last night. Wish I could have seen it.

^ What's the deal in Detroit? Home opener and the game didn't sell out.

Detroit's fallen on hard times. Our economy is 49th if not 50th in the country.

Yikes. Only 19,000 fans show up?

Some friends of mine have been begging us to move to Detroit area. I asked them why I would move to a city that everyone else is trying to leave.

I'd be asking them that, too.

There's a dude in one of my classes this semester who just moved here from California. When he announced that, you could hear the jaws drop.

As soon as I graduate, my ass is out of here.

You should take the rest of you too. There's no use staying in detroit with no ass.

Its the only thing there that people are still buying ...

Brilliant!

I'm hoping the Flyers can rebound, last year was a biiig disappointment. Clarke gone is a big plus, for me he was way to volatile as a GM. You can't run a club that way - guy has a lousy game, dump him for a 4th rounder etc.

Big acquisition in Briere. I saw a lot of him when he played for Springfield in the AHL and he was a real treat. I always hoped he'd make it in the NHL, of course his size worked against him but the new rules help a guy like Briere flourish.

Oh and the Habs beat Carolina Any Hurricanes loss is a great thing, the fact they won a Stanley Cup is an abomination. Yes, my green-bleeding ass is still bitter, 10 years later. Screw Carolina.
