    With the other NHL thread at 168 pages and almost 1700 posts, I figured doing one per year might be a little easier on us die-hard fans. :)

    We just got the season schedule for the 08-09 season, and I must say that I like what the CBJ was dished. There are a couple tough road trips, but nothing like last year. The X-mas holiday week looks REALLY nice with a bunch of games at home right before and right after the break.

    I REALLY like that we're going to see more of the East this year....and that inter-conference games took the brunt of that (one less game against Detroit is a GOOD thing. LOL).

    Our season tickets are paid for and we should be getting our "package" in the middle of September sometime.

    The Avs have loaded up as well: Liles and Foote are signed, as is Svatos for another 2 years. Theodore is on a bus out of town, which is probably the best off-season news I've heard in a decade.
    The press release announcing that Scott "The Sheriff" Parker is returning made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :) 6'5", 240#....yeah...he's a puck handling machine. If the puck is near the opponents face. :D

    I haven't heard anything about Super Joe re-signing. I hope he's got one more awesome season for us.

    I'm ready.
    Are you?

    Sundin said he'd give an answer on Friday on whether he's retiring or not and on which team he'll go if he isn't. The Habs, Canucks, and Toronto are his choices apparently. I'm looking forward to hearing more about that.

    I have a feeling this will be a good year for the habs! *fingers crossed* A cup for the centennial would be nice :D Were also hosting the allstar game and the draft :yesway:

    Sundin should goto the Canucks. That'd be sweet.

    I dont follow the NHL much, esp when NFL season is here, but im rooting for the Canucks this year (like last year) I guess.

    Shouldn't their jersey numbers be "6", and have three of their jersey backs facing the camera?

    Ok WHAT THE FUCK, the radio affiliate isn't even broadcasting the preseason game. You would think for a team that was in the Stanley Cup finals they could at least broadcast the damn game on the radio :realmad:

    Being in Toronto sucks, crap shoot team that cant even tank properly or simply make the playoffs,yet sell out like every game, this year we will be pretty bad and might have a shot at tavares or hedman. Ive never gone to a Leafs game simply because you have to pay ridiculous amounts of money on tickets that arent in the best seats, and since all of them are sold out, you gotta buy off scalpers which is even worse. I gotta go to the states and catch a hockey game for cheap. Like a Minnesota Wild game or something.
