I thought it was funny that since it was even opening night, I opened up the Chicago Sun Times and there was a little article about the hawks winning in over time. It was fucking the first open season game and that article was behind a poker tournament!

Oh the irony

They won their first game on the road.

Chicago Wolves 4
Houston Aeros 2

Now, hopefully they can win their first game at home against Milwaukee on Saturday.

Thanks for the responses Leaf fans!!

I figured many people just became fans cause their family rooted for a certain team and went along with it as kids. Or they are from the same region.

Since we don't have a team in Newfoundland, you will come across Leaf, Hab, Bruin, Detroit, etc. fans but mostly Leaf and Hab fans. I was fairly unique being an Oiler fan and those late night playoff games were a bitch.

It's a good question! Maybe it's because we're continually force-fed a blitz of Leafs media coverage? They're usually the top sports story on Toronto-based TSN, and other media. Just a guess. Of the two East Coast teams, Montreal has certainly had the legacy with the most lustre during my days as a fan. THEY had the huge following in the '70s, but something definitely changed in the '80s...even though the Leafs were god-awful in that decade. Maybe a growing number of people just started feeling really sorry for them.

I loved last night's Habs/Leafs game. Classic. Even Don Cherry seemed feisty and coherent. Not sold on the new jerseys, however...they seem a bit like practice jerseys to me.

I will probably never get another chance to say this - ever - so:

NY Islanders: Undefeated and in sole possession of first place.

Also in sole possession of the worst uniforms in the league, currently.

That's immaterial!

But yeah, they kinda look like the Flyers now. Still better than the Gorton's Fisherman look.

One of the worst jersey ideas ever.

im an avalanche fan, how is pattrick roy doing in goal?

I miss it when there was fights that the refs would let them do, then the goalies would get fet up and start punching each other...

Any who, im surprise that Chris Chelios is still playing at 45..

Go Avalanche!

Has Boston ever really been a big hockey town, though? The only time that comes to mind is the 70's or 80's when Orr and Borque were playing.

What was even worse was the pre-game graphics. It was a CG pirate ship, and the Islanders would take slap shots out of the cannon hole things on the side. And I think it somehow ended with the Gorton Fisherman coming up through the ice or something stupid like that. So bad. But back in those days they weren't in first place and undefeated* - like now - so people had to focus on something else.












*I probably only have until 5pm to say this. Don't hate.
