    Here we go boys...Hawks looked good tonight, but lost in OT to the Avs. Carcillo still has a job, so does Adam Burish. I need to get back on the ice, if those 2 idiots can get contracts, so can I.

    Eberle's goal was so nice.

    Lemieux can do what ever he wants to just like Gretzky and the Flyers can suck it.

    Habs were so so. Price, as usual, gave up the 1st goal... I don't know about him. Halak gave us such a good year last year. Komisarek looked out of place yesterday for the Leafs, he's paid way too much for what he is worth now

    That was a backbreaker. I thought Letang was the reincarnation of Sergi Gonchar for a moment. It was a heck of a move with a defender right on him.

    That Eberle goal was incredible.

    Sweet goal by Seguin as well. Wasnt too impressed with the B's showing on sat, but they look much improved sun.

    Seguin goal was nice.

    Tim Thomas with the new mask and old school Don Beaupre cage thing going on with it. Gotta give it to Thomas - he's always doing something offbeat/different with his gear. He looked pretty sharp in net yesterday as well. Bruins look pretty solid.

    Weird to see Thornton wearing #11 though.

    Anyone have an update on Pavelec? His collapse the other night was scary stuff.

    Just saw the update - concussion. Did he take one to the noggin earlier in that game? There were only a few minutes gone when he collapsed weren't there?

    2:25 in. Replays showed everyone skating away from him, no sign the puck, a stick, a skate or anything had touched him. Was listening to it on radio, was scary few moments.

    same. Campbell came over with Horton in the trade with Fla, when the B's sent Wideman and the 15th pick to them.

    Leafs looked great first two games. Wednesday vs Pens on the road will be a real test.

    Boy does he stink!

    the 09-10 Wideman was hit or miss but he was near the top in points for the B's during the playoffs. Hes a hell of a player when hes on, but man can he be a liability, and in the end id rather have horton and campbell than wideman & the 15th overall.

    who do you follow MMcG?

    Kessel is a sure thing for about 35-40 goals I'd say. B's gonna be good IMO. Top 6 East for sure.

    Long story involving Canadian Tire and them being sold out of Leaf's jerseys when I was a kid traveling to Hamilton, Ont for one of my brother's games - led me to become a Montreal Canadiens follower.

    the Canadian Tire was sold out of Leafs jerseys in my size, but they had plenty of Habs jerseys on the rack so my parents bought me a red Habs jersey and I started following them from that point on.

    But I'm not a die-hard or anything. I love the sport and enjoy watching good hockey bottom line. And being in CT - I get to watch my fair share of Bruins games so I keep tabs on them to a certain extent.

    I probably follow Division I and D III (played 4 years of DIII myself) college hockey closer than the NHL. :thumb:

    Yeah placed on waivers...not worth the $3mil/yr or whatever he's being paid.

    Im waitin for Cody Hodgson to play permanently with Vancouver...he's family now! (bro married cody's cousin). Though it's unfortunate he just got moved down to the Moose after being medically cleared.
    Nice to see Manny Malhotra (a mississauga boy) cleaning up on face-offs.

    Kessel is good for a few, til Burke rips him in the press for something and his head and attitude goes south...

    Malhotrahas been an underrated presence for awhile now. Solid 3d line center.

    Gotta love all the injuries already. My fantasy NHL Team is going down hill. Johan Franzen is day to day with a concussion and Brian Rafalski is out for 4 weeks with a bum knee.

    The hit didnt even look that bad!


    Being a Pens fan I cant believe I actually care about players from Detroit. Dang fantasy leagues...

    The speed of the game seems to be getting faster and faster by the year as the grey beards of yesteryear are all moving onto retirement. It's great to watch regular season games being played at such a pace, but I really do hope they remove the instigator rule. Seems like so many players are sustaining injury now from the reckless abandonment and speed these guys play with now.
