    A lot of us here had that feeling as well, given that we were given a day's warning that he was coming back, did so against a team (the Islanders) that the NHL stepped into to punish after that horrible debacle of a fighting match last season, and with great media fanfare. Something just felt too set up about it.

    EDIT: Just saw the e-mail reminder. For those interested and with the means, 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic premieres tonight on HBO. If you didn't see last year's series, it was extremely well-produced, and it was fun to gain an insight into the teams.

        Just saw 24/7 Flyers/Rangers. I thought it was pretty good, but didn't really pick up on the zany personalities. Bryzgalov for one is usually full of funny stuff, but he comes off as a space cadet in the first ep.

        Guess it'd be useless to deny
        I'm just saying, you're the reason why

                  Playoff intensity in last nights Red wings game. Wings hosted the blues.



                  You can argue that hit was a bit high.

                    Nashville's in fourth! In the division?

                    Yes, that's right, Nashville is fourth in the division and seventh in the conference. Here comes another fifth place finish and a series out west.

                      i love how, on new years eve, Stamkos had a hat trick and almost a 4th goal, not to mention that we erected a statue to our founder Phil Esposito in the plaza and there was not even a mention on NHL.com. fucking sad.

                        I don't go to NHL.com for league news anymore. Nashville was in the only game on New Year's Day, Sergei Kostitsyn had a hatty, and I can't find a game recap without digging.

                            The Rocket Richard will go to Steven Stamkos, who will be the only 50-goal scorer in the NHL this season.

                              And here we have proof of what Sik Pony and I were complaining about, NHL.com's ineptness.

                                I never go there either.....


                                Red Wings hold on to what turned into a nail biter at the end. They held a 5-3 lead at the start of the third and then Dallas scored with more than 5 minutes to go.

                                  Been on a Preds-centric kick lately, but there's been a ton of news coming out of my chosen camp. Like these tidbits...

                                  After a few years of uncertainty facing the team and its residency here, that's great news. And a slight indicator of how big hockey has become in this NFL, Nascar, non-traditional hockey market.

                                    So, the nhl continues to suspend EVERYBODY! WTF? Carcillo gets 7 for playing hockey and Bourque gets 5 for hitting someone? this is unreal.

                                    anyways, here is some funny shit, Coach Torts speaking the truth and getting in trouble for it. I love the "appology" at the end


                                    Torts apologizes for Classic officiating criticism"Using the word disgusting was not the proper way to go about it," Tortorella said. "I was wrong there."

                                      A nice article on Crosby, concussions, next year's Winter Classic and other hockey stuff.

                                        I don't care who owns what in relation to Red Wings' ownership, if the game isn't at the Big House, it's a complete failure.

                                          one problem i have with the Classic is that a couple years ago they came out and made it clear that it would only ever involve certain northern teams. I know it unrealistic to want to see Tampa play in the classic but my point is, acording to the NHL, it will never happen. i would love to see it in Toronto though, maybe Toronto vs Buffalo. That would be great.
