I still think the new jursey player rule for the Player safety is just stupid. Elbows I can see in a way. You think they would make Gretzy enforce that rule today? I doubt it.

How's everybody doing. Did not pay attention to the preseason and the Wings picked up their first win yesterday. I'm excited for the new division. Hyped about this team too. Didn't want Cleary back but otherwise I like the team. Penalty kill looked good yesterday. Then again that was against the Sabres where you can afford to have two 5 on 3s against you.

Predators play their first game tonight against the Blues. Excited to see the new acquisitions play...and excited to see both Forsberg and Seth Jones on the team from day one. Really hoping Rinne has a big year too.

Man was Roy pissed off! Funny how Boudreau got scared as the glass fell.

 

 

Also glad to see Marty get the C. If they gave it to Stamkos, it just would have been stupid.

After checking out a couple preseason games, I am pumped to see how the Kings perform out of the gate here against Minnesota.

I ended up winning tickets to last nights Blues and Predators game.  I was expecting nose bleed, but the seats were really nice.  I was surprised to see the game 3-0 in the first 9:31 and Nashville change goaltenders.  I'm not sure if it was just a bad night for Nashville or what.  Their power play was bad and their penalty kill seemed just as bad if not worse.  I really expected more from Nashville,  I'm wondering if they just underestimated St. Louis.  Hell it even looked like at times around the net they were getting desperate just to get a point so it wouldn't be a shutout.  I'm looking forward to the game against Chicago next week.  Hell if I can get decent seats for it I may even go to it.   

 

EDIT:  The start from Florida is what I expected from Nashville.  I really think that goal by Tarasenko should have been goaltender interference.  I guess the true test to see how good St. Louis is at the start will be Chicago next week.  Really thought with the speed of Florida this game would have been different.

Surprised the Lightning beat the Blackhawks in a shootout. Was quite a great game played by both teams. Shows how much of a clutch Captain Martty is.

I was surprised, but glad to hear that when a friend of mine told me last night.  I'm looking forward to seeing Chicago Wednesday night.  I really hope it isn't a blow out on either side.

Hopefully that gets Bishop more starts. Lindback is not starter material.

I still don't see Bishop as a starter though. Still, they get rid of Vinny but they keep Brewer. I don't get it.

Well it's not like we can find a goalie...so we have to go with our best bet. I still think Bishop is our best guy. Wish they would have waited and grabbed Jonathan Bernier. Well they kind of had to get rid of Vinny. I wish we could have kept him though. I guess they kept Brewer because they have such a hard time finding defense as it is

Preds finally picked up their first win last night against Minnesota. Filip Forsberg scored his first NHL goal, with Seth Jones getting the secondary assist for his first NHL point. Really nice to see the young guys chipping in. And as usual, Nashville was outshot...34-25. Rinne with 32 saves, making me feel much better about taking him in fantasy. At the end of the day, he's my guy. But God damn, he was making me nervous the way he started the season.

Looks lime Tomas Hertl had the dirtiest play of the season so far. Kid was drafted 17th in the 2012 draft and is only 19. I see him becoming the next Crosby. (You can hate Crosby all you want, but he is an amazing player this generation so far.)

Can't hate the kid, damn happy for him. To answer your question, yes.

That goal is sick. The only thing that would have made it better is if he would have started riding his stick immediately. I mean, he was already in position for it, lol.

That is skill but how much of it will now go to his head. Also the first 20 of the blues and blackhawk game is what I have been wanting to see and what I expected from Nashville. St. Louis seems to really be tested in this game.

Well, Chicago is the defending champion, haha. I'd hope they would bring their A game. As for Nashville, I'm hoping it's just going to take a little bit for them to start gelling together. There are a lot of new faces on the team. Forsberg, Cullen, Hendricks, Nystrom, Jones, and Stalberg all weren't on the team last year. I don't really expect them to be Cup contenders this year, but they should definitely improve from what they showed last year.

Blues do look go this year as did Chicago. Chicago gave everything I expected to see. I will need to see more, but maybe St. Louis has what it takes this year to make it past round 2 of the playoffs. I would love to see St. Louis and Boston or St. Louis and new Jersey go at it for the cup. Also really looking forward to seeing the games against la, San Jose, and more of Chicago and Nashville.

After watching him start, you have changed my mind. Bishop is a great starter. Lindback is def second string.

Yea he's been pretty good this year. Its unfortunate that he had to miss that Penguins game. Bishop has been awesome tonight. Only goal he's given up so far was a complete defensive lapse. My nickname for Lindback is the Swedish statue

Long story short, my roomy and I have NHL Gamecenter now.

Went to watch the Sharks game (we live in SJ) and the game... is BLACKED OUT.

WTF is the point in having fucking gamecenter if it's blacked out!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!!?!?!

That's a great way to keep fans NHL, keep doing that... yeah. Should've stayed locked out...

That's how all of those internet sport things work. You can watch all of the games, except the ones that air in your area on cable. There's a way around it, but I've never cared enough to figure it out.

Most people get the playoffs on regular television channels. Its the same way with NFL, MLB, NBA etc....
