    I'm cheering for Detroit Red Wings and I'm pretty confident of this season. Favorite players in the team are Valtteri Filppula and Pavel Datsyuk. It's sad that most of the matches are played at 2AM (local time) but hopefully i'll be able to watch few matches.

    What is your team?
    Pittsburgh Penguins

    What big moves (and bad moves) did they make this offseason?
    Good:
    Got Asham and Michalek. Their talents help round out the team.
    Lots of great talent acquired for the Baby Pens that can step up to the NHL whenever needed.
    That new arena smell must be putting the players on another level.

    Bad:
    Lost Guerin and Gonchar. Asham and Michalek help this out a bit, but whenever Gonchar gets going, it's tough to stop him.
    Staal out with that foot injury.
    Moving Malkin to the wing when he prefers center. Makes sense if Staal is around to center for him, but with Staal out, I'm sure Malkin's looking at center ice.

    What is your prediction and why?
    Have the division clinched before the playoffs, get 4th seed or better, make it at least to the semi-finals. Why? We may have lost Gonchar and Guerin, but their play had started to suffer a bit with age, and the replacements are working fantastically for the team. We had a strong showing last year, and the team between then and now hasn't changed much where it counts. Plus we're hosting the Winter Classic this season, so the team is motivated to do better than ever.

    Predators trade Parent and Andersson for 'Nucks O'Brien and Gendur.

    Oh boy. From what I've heard, new captain Shea Weber is going to have his hands full with O'Brien's on- and off-ice issues. Also, I think it was a mistake trading Parent, but we'll see how the season progresses.

    I will gladly trade O'Brien for your captain's bedmate. I'll even let her play defense.

    It appears Ian Laperriere may need to retire. Almost definate he won't play this season. Bummer, I liked him.

    Note, this isn't because of post-concussion syndrome, but optical nerve damage after taking a puck to the face.

    I root for Detroit, partially because of my hatred for the state that borders WI from the west.

    I'm glad to have NHL Network on my dish, because it means I can watch Hockey Night in Canada. Well, at least the first game.

    Damn it, when the Pens opened the Civic Arena and lost, it took them 30 years to win a Cup...

    I wouldn't mind so much if it hadn't been against the Flyers. The Flyers! I'm sure there are elements in Pittsburgh that would like to hop on the Turnpike East and lay siege to the bad side of the state over this.

    Just a heads-up if you don't already know, if you're on Dish Network and want to watch the Fox Sports broadcasts, you're out of luck. This article gives a list of what stations are affected. It's on a Predators blog so if anyone has a less team-centric article, post it up.

    Go Wings. Although I am still not liking Betuzzi being there.

    Off to a good start too.

    This is exciting a friend of mine who roots for both the Leafs and Pens.
