Philly does have a good team now. Rangers need someone like Jaromir Jagr again. I don't follow the Avs.

Av's have been hurting since Sakic and Roy left. They've been less than mediocre since then. I also like the Wild and even happier that Parise is on a team that I don't hate...

What teams does everybody root for?

 

I've been a Penguins fan since I was a little kid, mostly due to the NHL 94 video game for Sega Genesis.

 

Kinda hard being a hockey fan out here in Western NE. It's rarely on TV unless you buy Center Ice

Was a Rangers fan until they signed Lindros, then burned both my jersey's in the drive way, the Av's and the Wild...

 

I despise the Devils, Flyers, Penguins, Red Wings, Vancouver, and the Stars..

 

I also am a college hockey fan, ND Fighting Sioux

For those of you that have NBC Sports as a part of your cable lineup, they have what they're calling "Rivalry Wednesday". A couple teams that have beefs, and hoping fireworks ensue...

Yeah, to me, one of the big mistakes the Avs made was letting Chris Drury get away. I think Drury could have been (and to me was) the heir apparent to Sakic for captain, but for some reason, the Avs didn't think they could keep him. They need to get their head back to where they can get the guys in to compete again. Hopefully, that'll be sometime in the near future.

And FWIW... on the NHL side, I root for Colorado, Minnesota, St. Louis, Dallas, and the Ducks... on the college side, UNO above all others, and then a couple of UNOs future conference mates... Minnesota-Duluth and North Dakotah...

Chuck, spot on...

 

Drury wasn't the same once he'd left Denver. He didn't have the skill of Sakic, but he had the cliched "intangibles". That kid knew how to win.

 

They've got some good young talent, Statsny, Duchene, Landeskog, and Parenteau, but they need help on the blue line and a solid goal tender...

Avs fan here but basically appreciate any good hockey game. I actually follow our local ECHL team, Colorado Eagles, probably more than the Avs. Figures Bucky would be a Red Wings fan. I really want to like them but just can't after the 90's history against my Avs. God how I miss Forsberg. Loved watching that guy play the game.

Good to see some hockey talk on here. I'm a Blues fan. Don't watch too much college hockey due to my location here in Missouri. Hate all things Red Wings. Excited to watch some of the new young talent that has arrived in the nhl.

College hockey helped get me through the lockout. You'll get some good games on Friday and Saturdays. If you've got any of the fox sports channels or NBC Sports through your cable provider, theres a pretty good chance you'll be able to catch a game.

 

Also, if you want good college hockey coverage, I suggest USCHO.com (us college hockey online)

Yeah, what the hell was that?

 

I don't have a real in-depth knowledge of hockey. I understand the basics and I'm starting to understand strategy and things like that a little more (at least I think I am), but last night just looked like a lack of effort. Nobody was going after the puck with any sense of urgency, except the Islanders. Turnovers and laziness/lack of effort.

If you keep watching, Doc Emerick is awesome and gives a good breakdown while the game is going on...

I think he was calling the game last night. He kept commenting on the Pens playing very business like and how they showed no emotion. Even after Bylsma called a timeout and was trying to instill some life into them, they still just skated around all lackadaisical

What's up with Fleury? He use too dominate and now he seems so out of position.

You'll get that quite frequently in the NHL regular season. Teams will go through many spells of just going through the motions it seems. Skating at that level is extremely physically demanding so I can't say as I blame them for dogging some shifts or periods. Although I would think with the long break they've had, they might be a little more anxious to get after it at this point. The good news is, they take it up about 5 notches when the playoffs roll around. That is when you'll really see some tremendous hockey. It is sometimes hit & miss (or dump & chase if you prefer) during the regular season.

Some talk about adding 2 teams:

 

http://sports.yahoo....48215--nhl.html

 

I saw that, and honestly, I don't think thats what they need to do.

 

If it were up to me, I'd get rid of at least 2, but no more than 6 teams. Does Florida need two hockey teams, no...

 

And with Phoenix drawing about 8,000 last week i think. They may lose a team. Who knows.

Well, they need to nix both Florida teams, Phoenix, Carolina, Columbus and Nashville. That would leave 24 teams, with two 12 team conferences. and broken down into 6 team divisions. And, bring back the old names of the conferences. I miss the Norris division...

Haven't got to watch to many hockey games due to my work schedule and no center ice, but I have been watching the blues. They look pretty solid so far along with Chicago and San Jose. Any other teams to watch out for?

You've got the western conference pretty well covered...

 

As far as the east, the Devils, Pittsburgh, the Rangers and the Bruins...

one of the reasons they won is because the Rangers power play looked like ass...
