    Default 2008 NHL Season

    Time for a new one me thinks. In case anyone is wondering, Anaheim and Los Angeles are tied for first in the West and the league with 2pts apiece!

    Anyways, Bernier looks like he may have LA in playoff contention come April. Things really get going on Thursday, but it should be one hell of a tight race in both conferences.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves. LA ain't making the playoffs. Bernier was great, but not sure if a 19 year old can handle a whole season. They may only keep him up for 10 games or so.

    As for the Ducks, they played MUCH better on Sunday. Perry & Getzlaf were clicking. Also I like Bobby Ryan playing with Bert.

    Since Sucka is probably busy today with some band hitting his town....

    Some Flyer news

    Jason Smith was named the 16th captain of the Philadelphia Flyers today. Gagne and Richards will wear the "A"s.

    There's another Staal brother in the NHL. Marc made the final cut, and is most likely going to start the season as part of the 3rd defensive pair. I really like what I've seen from the kid thus far.

    Looking at the Kings line-up, if Bernier has a good, not excellent year, they can make it. They have a lot of talent up front. The blueline should be much better too. Regardless, I'll take Bernier over Cloutier ANY day.

    The NY Daily News this morning says that the Rangers are going to open the season with Drury centering Jagr's line and Gomez centering Shanahan's line. They started camp Gomez-Jagr and Drury-Shanahan, but have been playing the revised way in practice and games the last week or so. I'm sure it will be revisited again if they don't get off to a hot start.

    2 quotes by Gomez. "I think that right now, that line with Chris and Jags and Straka looks like it could be really dangerous."

    On playing with Shanahan, "I like to pass the puck and he (Shanahan) likes to shoot it."

    More from Burke on Lowe......

    Hereís a short segment from Brian Burkeís interview on TSNís Hockey Preview from last night:

    ***

    James Duthie: Are you and Kevin Lowe on speaking terms right now?

    Brian Burke: Well I donít know if he is. Iím not talking to him.

    Duthie: How long will the silence end, what would end it?

    Burke: Iím not sure. But I know one thing. For the colossal stupidity of what the Edmonton Oilers did this past summer, if I had run my team into the sewer like that, I wouldnít throw a grenade at the other 29 teams, and my own indirectly. So I have no intention of talking to him anytime soon.

    Duthie: What if thereís an Oiler you want later in the season, around trade deadline time?

    Burke: Well Bob Murray can talk to someone then. My assistant.

    Just another note for the fantasy hockey people.

    Jordan Staal got moved up to the 1st line with play LW along side SID. Talk about the best spot in hockey.

    Also in practice the Sharks have been playing Pat Marleau on LW with Joe & Cheech.

    But all that could change after the 1st period with the way some coaches change up lines...LOL!

    Patty on the big line, eh? I can dig that.

    Got two games on versus tonight, and I cannot wait!! Still haven't ordered Center Ice yet. I'll probably do that this weekend.

    FREE Center Ice for the next week or so. Also look for the "NHL Network" to start soon (Oct 1st-15th) on most cable/sat systems in the US.

    Ducks should be pretty tired after the England trip. They really got SCREWED by the NHL. Anyways I like the Wings in the opener. Giggy could be back in a week or 2.

    The Stars are going to be pretty boring, look for them to follow the Canucks model from last year. Defensive hockey......


    The big new tonight for the LEAF fans. Raycroft in net.....LOL!!!!! Damn JFJ is in trouble after the money they spent on Toskala. Who knows who they will end up going with. Lots of crazed fans on the FAN590 from TO right now.

    Heatley just signed for 6 years, between 7.5 and 8 per. I don't think he shouldn't be making a dime over 7, but the Sens wanted it done ASAP.

    Looks like Mark Striet of the Habs earned himself a tryout as the new PP quarterback. What a bullet shot!

    Holy shit, thanks for the heads up! I'll be tuning in tonight for sure.

    Nice call on the Wings win, although I'm sure you didn't know it was going to go to a shootout.

    I like your prediction about Geztlaf this year. That kid was really up on his skates last night, and should have gotten a call in OT last night. Bill McCreary missed another call last night when he sent two to the box in OT, instead of giving the Ducks a PP. The Wings got one, and I was irratated that he wouldn't give the champs a call.
