    Can't wait. Olympic Hockey this year should be good. Guys always skate harder when it's for their country :)

    it's one game, B's still kicked themselves in their own nutZ this year. Playoffs are out of the picture IMO.

    Carolina has the Hurricanes.... Nashville has the Predators.
    Florida has the Panthers, the Lightning
    Dallas has the Stars...

    plenty of hockey to latch on to.

    Yeah,

    Can't get into it on TV, went to see a few games when I was younger and visiting relatives. It was a lot of fun in person. Not much buzz about it either where I live, takes some of the fun out of it.

    Caps should be counted as a south also =) but yeah, if you are not a NHL fan, just go to any hockey game... watch it live. You will love it... Being @ Virginia Tech doesn't allow me to go to Caps game but i still watch our Hokies play @ Roanoke Civic Center... Its an awesome game.. All of you non-hockey fans.. just go watch any game you will love it.

    I've been playing since I was five, and still and 22 years later, I love the sport. It is definitely WAY better to watch in person. Watching on TV just doesn't cut it. I've brought enough people to their 'first' games to know that they enjoy it much more in person.

    It's tough following something if you're the only one talking about it I agree.

    Lol... I'm from Michigan and now live in Atlanta... I can attest that hockey just doesn't translate down here.. No one watches the Atlanta Thrashers, except northerners like me who come to games to watch their home teams... Can't speak for the other southern teams, I would think Tampa would have a good following after their cup a few years back...

    GO REDWINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree. Like I said, this is the difference between Crosby and Ovie:

    Talk about whiners - Ovechkin leads the pack in that department. The NBC/Versus guys are so pro Ovechkin, and the league has told the officials basically to leave him alone, it's disgusting. Ok, so Sid scores the first 2 goals, ends in a tie, and Ovie gets his hat trick and then they win in O.T. - big deal. When push comes to shove, and the ultimate goal is winning the Stanley Cup - I don't recall the Capitals beating the Penguins last year to advance and win the cup. The real season starts after the regular season ends just in case you didn't realize that.

    Matthew - when I started seeing your comments about Plum - I was like I wonder if he knews Umberger - and then was really happy to see you knocked him on his ass!:icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

    I would love to see the "New England Whalers" or "Hartford Whalers" return. It was such a shame when they left. They were one of the 4 WHA teams that joined the NHL. I wonder who can name the other 3 teams? :)

    The olympics are going to be hard to watch because I'm not sure who to root for and I hope no one gets hurt. I hope Fleury doesn't get any playing time. I already don't see the pens repeating as it is

    Vulcan just for the record I am but a turd on the street compared to rj. I just want to make sure I didn't come across as thinking I was better lol. I didn't even know who he was at the time because plum wasn't one of our regular season oponents. We only played them during tournaments. Plus he graduated a year ahead of me iirc. I didn't figure he would even go anywhere (I don't remember him being a huge name). The guy we all thought would make it played for us...andre makarov...heard he went back to play pro russian hockey but couldn't find any info on him
