NHL is back! What are your feelings, your predictions, your plans? Are you excited for the season, or afraid your team is gonna bomb out? Who do you think is going to win their division? Who is going to go on to become Stanley Cup winners? The pre-season is underway now and sports recaps are energized with the added adrenalin of hockey coverage - Finally after a summer that was not devoid of hockey news - a lot of it sad: RIP Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team, Wade Belak, Rick Rypien and Derek Boogaard. As for my local preferences, The Maple Leafs showed some guts against Ottawa last night with a 4-2 win in the first pre-season game. Maybe - just maybe they can carry on the with the performance they dazzled with for the end of last season. Will Vancouver (the best team in the reg season last year) make it to the finals again (and have to face those Leafs ? LoL). And - The Winnipeg Jets are back. How great is that? (sorry Atlanta fans - it should have been Phoenix - but then, you also need bums in seats) Please discuss, enjoy the season.... and... Game On!
