    The NHL Discussion Thread

    NHL is back baby!

    The NFL thread here is pretty busy so I figured I'd start an NHL one for anyone to participate in now that the lockout is over. Have at it hockey fans!

    Let's Go Rangers!

    You're not the only one to feel this way, bud. I'm disappointed with what happened, but it's over with and shouldn't happen again. Just drop the puck and get this shit rollin'. Sooner the better.

    I've spent the last 3+ months getting more and more pissed about the lockout and convincing myself that I was going to boycott the NHL this season, right up until today. Now suddenly that's all gone and I am revved up for hockey.

    With all that being said, I can only add: Let's Go Rangers!

    Well all right then. Looks like Brodeur will get a final season after all. Go Devils!

    Yeah, me too. I thought I'd be excited, but I was surprised to find myself not really caring. I suspect that will change the second the puck drops.

    This is where I'm at, too.

    Of course, the fact that the Flyers are going to suck this year doesn't help.

    Nah, not really. Sorry that I come off that way.

    I'm still not over the Shea Weber thing. That + the lockout have soured me.

    In this case Scott's right...the Flyers do suck.

    Nowhere near enough to make it legitimate, IMO.

    LOL! I'm just being agreeable.

    Plus I'm a Leafs fan...which makes me an expert on sports teams that suck.

    I believe it will be 50. 5 games vs. 4 division rivals and 3 games vs. 10 conference rivals.

    I like seeing the West teams, but this should make for some intense hockey.

    I've seen you mention preferring a 60 game season of which I agree. That's nowhere near 50?

    I think you need a puppy.

    Maybe the Caps can win on a shortened season.

    Oh I agree. Certainly deserves an * next to whoever the champion will be.

    Interesting.

    Well I guess something is better than nothing. And I'm quite surprised a deal was done.

    They threatened to use the rinks for a tour of the ice version of Riverdance.
