    Training camp's gearing up, Pre-Season starts next week. The smell of ice and sweat are in the air.

    My team (Devils...duh) start the season with 9 road games, since the new arena in Newark won't be open until after the season starts.

    Lot's of offseason movement. Plenty of players finding new homes. What teams are looking the best to you?



    On another NHL related note, and as a Sirius Satellite Radio subscriber, I'm psyched for this!

    OK I'll bite. I'm still a bit pissed about the Jets and all but i loved seeing Selanne hoist the cup last year. It was the defining moment in my life as a hockey fan prehaps equal to when he broke the rookie goals and points record back in the day with my Jets. I guess I'll be pulling for the Duck's again this year, until some broke Florida team, or Columbus or Nashville wants to stop losing money and we get a team back. If Prime could come back so can the Jets :thumb

    Well, I don't think the Maple Leafs will be improving that much this year (I'm looking at you Mark Bell). Let's just hope they atleast make the playoffs.

    Here's hoping Iron Mike gets the Flames going this year. Maybe win a few on the road this go around.

    And I'm hoping the Habs don't screw up Price's development by rushing him up too soon. He's a good goalie and will be a good NHL goalie... just don't push him too fast guys... Please.

    Harry Neale losing his voice would be the best thing that could happen to HNIC. Guy is a moron, if he talks about one more player's protective cup I'll only watch coverage on TSN and Sportsnet.......................

    I'll be rooting for the Habs (and the Flyers…), but I sure hope we get some reinforcements if we want to make the playoffs. The young prospects will have to step it up.

    Most of the new RBK Edge jerseys rock, except for a few abominations… Can't wait to see those in action.

    I really hate the look of the "form fitting" RBK Jersey's. :( 

    Glad I have 11 Devils jersey's. No need to purchase one of those new abominations.

    Glad I got my Sabres jersey last year as well. No need for these in my book. Sweaters 4 life!

    And some of the new logos are uncalled for. Glad the Caps are back to the traditional logo, even if they updated it. But the additions to the Lightning and Sharks are unnecessary.

    Anyway, curious on my Sabres. Still haev a quality team and the only one I miss is actually Drury. Vanek, Pominville, and the rest just have to pick up the slack. I also hope they let Andrew Peters play a Rob Ray style of hockey like he should. I want the old time hockey where you rought up the other guys a bit. yea the fast paced NHL is fun, but so is a few skirmishes now and again.

    Also, being in Chicago, I have absolutely no faith in the Hawks and the city seems to have forgotten they exist. However with their signings and draft choices, I would expect a spark from them.

    I was working when tickets went on sale and couldn't scope up a pair. I called my dad in Buffalo and he said it was actually 17 minutes. And I really wanted to go and take him for his b-day.

    But I actually looked at the setup and I have a feeling it's going ot be hard for the people in the lower seats to see. The rink only takes up a third of the stadium area.
