    I'll take Braydon Coburn and Kimmo Timonen trying to fend off Sid and Geno any day. Anytime I feel I'm having a bad day, I just watch this and I find myself smiling in any situation.

    Habs just signed Paccioretty for 6 years, 27 millions $. I think its a great move given the year he just had, if he plays that good all the time, it'll be awesome, but I'm sure he can improve even more given his age. Also, wondering what's happening with Subban, hopes that this signature will make him move and get a contract that he deserve (not what he thinks he deserve lol)

    I was about to talk epic shit about Pacioretty being grossly overpaid...then I checked his stats to see he scored 33 goals and 65 pts last year. :spock: Definitely a must-sign for the Habs, as long as Chara doesn't try to decapitate him again.

    on another note, the Flyers just lost Lilja for 4 months or so, leaving them with about three NHL caliber defensemen. Queue gloating.

    Yeah Paccioretty is a serious player, awesome to see the Habs sign him.

    Also I saw about Lilja, curious to see what the Flyers end up doing and if their kids manage to step up. Wondering the same thing about the Pens D core :lol:

    Yeah I've delayed creating the new thread until we see if there's a lockout on the 13th. I do think it's REALLY stupid of Bettman to try to force a lockout when the season could start under the existing agreement while negotiations continue...

    Is still believe that Bettman has his head shoved so deep in his ass that he can't admit the truth: his fabulous, marvelous and genious idea of bringing that many hockey teams in the south is hurting the league's revenue. I can't get this guy at all...

    I can get behind his eagerness to bring hockey to the south. Just looking at what happened in Phoenix and Nashville when their teams were suddenly making massive playoff runs gives me the idea that it is totally possible and good for the game in the long run. Unfortunately it requires some serious commitment and losses in the short term. I think a lot more of this falls on the greed and stupidity of franchise owners/GMs than solely on Bettman.

    That said, I'm still not a fan.

    I haven't followed the happenings very closely, but I will be quite pissed if there is no season. I've been really looking forward to this year's winter classic and alumni games, plus Datsyuk isn't getting any younger. I want to see if he can finally pull a 100 point season.

    Despite Phoenix making the playoffs the last few years, and making some decent runs, they till have trouble filling seats during the regular season.

    I just bought NHL 13 for my PS3. I guess that might have to hold me over until the season starts. If it does. :ugh:

    I should be picking up my copy within the next couple weeks. I prefer to play on Xbox but everyone I know is getting for the PS3, so we'll see which way I swing.

    I had a massive sad when the lockout became official.

    I don't think I could stand it if this were to happen again.

    The Stanley Cup is a challenge cup. It is not the property of the NHL, it was donated by the Governor General of Canada. Betman has no right to control its distribution. Have a worldwide tournament for it!

    Played the new NHL on yesterday. Gotta say that I love the improvement they done, especially the new physics of the players (how the speed and mass affect your guy, waaaay more realistic).

    Also, its so realist, the opening video, a goal is scored in slow-mo, goaler proudly wearing the Leafs color :lol:
