NHL 2010-2011 Thread

So preseason started today, it's time for a new thread

I watched the Flyers-Devils preseason game on NHL Network tonight... looks like it's going to be another tough year in the Atlantic Division

Getting closer and closer to hockey that matters

We should have an SSO fantasy hockey league!

Oh god, the Carey Price saga begins

One exhibition game (which was, admittedly, terrible on Price's part) in, and people are already calling for his head. It's going to be a long, long season in Montreal.

He wasn't responsible for Bergeron's goals IMO. Still not a very good performance.

NHL, HBO announce 24/7 Caps-Pens Winter Classic series - 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic - Capitals v. Penguins

"The NHL and HBO Sports announced Thursday their partnership for a groundbreaking, four-episode series as part of the network's 12-time Emmy Award-winning "24/7" reality TV franchise that will go deep into the inner workings of the Capitals-Penguins rivalry leading up to the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, which will be played Jan. 1 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. "

I'm not really sure how I feel about this. I think I want this kind of stuff to stay out of the NHL. Its just going to create more drama and give Pens/Caps haters more to talk about.

True, it was a bad performance. But those who call themselves "fans", and whistle at him are ....ing morons, IMO. Let's wait 15-20 games, then we'll talk. Give the guy a chance for Christ's sake... He needs our support.

Agreed. I was up in the Molson Ex Zone, so I heard it the loudest . I certainly wasn't impressed with his performance, but the reaction from some of the fans is just a little too much. Right after the game, I was listening to the radio, and people were calling in talking about how "this is what our season is going to look like with Price in the net"... After one meaningless game. Halak's gone, and still, the goaltending controversy just doesn't go away . I'm definitely with you on the support thing. He's a good goaltender with a lot of potential, but being so young, we're not helping by making it more difficult than it already is.

Price needs to be given a chance, I've seen the guy play in person in a couple of games against the Pens where he was just UNREAL. Given that and that he's young, you guys are probably in good shape.

I also love people trying to judge the season based on the preseason. Like yes, it's fun, but come on until the final lineups take the ice all bets are off. Hell the Pens game last night only had one or two guys playing that are likely to be top 6 forwards

I do have to say though that while I'm not an Asham fan, the idea of a Cooke - Talbot - Asham line is pretty freaking scary. I hadn't thought about them doing something like that.

I think that they will make a good line if the Pens decide to go that route. I'm also interested in Comrie staying on the second line if they want to move Malkin to wing and keeping Staal on the 3rd line when he comes back. I really want to know what the final lineup will be.

On a side note, congrats Technomancer on the new mod status!

Thanks

Honestly from the little I've seen so far I'd LOVE to see the following:

Sterling - Crosby - Kunitz/Dupuis
Tangredi - Comrie - Malkin
Cooke - Staal/Talbot - Asham

Unfortunately from what we've seen in past years with the Pens being VERY unwilling to really give AHL prospects spots in the lineup I doubt it will happen. I'm figuring we're more likely to see

Dupuis - Crosby - Kunitz
Asham - Comrie - Malkin

changing to

Comrie - Staal - Malkin

when Staal gets back


as the top two lines... because you know the Pens have guys under NHL contracts so they'll get shuffled to the top 2 lines whether they belong there or not

Also, just wanted to take a minute to say how cool tonight's Pens game is. ALL of the tickets for tonight's game were given away to local youth hockey teams, local charities, and people that worked in the construction of the new arena.

So watching Hawks / Wings on NHL Net:

Dear Hawks Fans, it's the first week of preseason, it is WAY TOO ....ING EARLY to be chanting, "We want the Cup"... especially when your team is now 1-2 in the preseason

i played ice hockey for years. my newest brother in law is a ohio highschool gym teacher/football coach. we where talking sports. keep in mind im not a football fan. i was talking about how much fun it was to play and how rough it was sometimes. he instantly said "yeah well they hit harder in football" like it was a competition. it took me about 2 seconds to realize what he said and think. NO WAY IN HELL. i dont think there is anyway that a football player hits harder than a hockey player. what do you think? i would think physics would say the faster moving man would cause the biggest hit, wouldnt you.

Yup... Not to mention in football it's all two guys hitting each other, as opposed to getting smashed into a solid wall of wood / glass

Football guys always have the 'oh football is the toughest sport" thing going on. When the NFL starts playing 82 games a season with back-to-back games and playoff series that're best of 7 for each matchup I'll agree Hell football players whine when they have to play Monday and the following Sunday

Pens are kicking ass, I was at the game tonight and they look REALLY good.

I also wanted to extend a public thanks to Brent Seabrook for scoring the Pens' two goals in the third period

Having played both a lot in my 23 years, I will acknowledge that hockey is the tougher sport, but football is a much more physically demanding game. There is no way they could play with that sort of intensity for 82 games. Hell, adding two regular season games is completely ludicrous.

They could play every day, but it would be a different game. They wouldn't have so many 300 lb dudes anymore

I've never been more tired in my life then after playing pick-up hockey where there were only 10 skaters so everyone was on the ice the whole time.
