    Just for the hockey fans. Preseason just started and I can't wait for the regular season. I am pumped for the Flyers this season. They are balanced and added some solid defensemen (Matt Carle and Andrej Meszaros) to help out Pronger and Timonen. We got rid of Gagne but added Zherdev and Guerin to get some needed scoring. Goaltending will always be the issue though. So I'm going to come out and say it... the Flyers are going to win the cup this season.[​IMG]

    I don't care if the Flyers win. I just want to see the Canucks advance past the second round --- hopefully beating Chicago in the process.

    Guerin is old. You can keep Zherdev, thanks. Pronger is well...

    Damn you, Rob! But all I remember was this, after we beat you in that shootout.

    Maybe the Wild will get to the post-season this time around. Their pre hasn't been impressive at all, though.

    Touche!

    We'll see this year. No goaltending will eventually catch up.

    I really doubt it. They're pretty horrible. Goalie would need a career year. The Hockey News picked the Canucks to win the cup this year - hopefully the lofty expectations are not misplaced.

    this thread title is much better than the other hockey thread.

    with that being said, GO DUCKS! I hope our team learns how to play defense this year. Losing Scotty sucks.

    Lol. The Winnipeg Jets have a better chance of winning the cup.


    Go Flames.

    This is some pretty ironic juxtaposition right here. And the award for "most embarassing offseason moves" goes to...

    They'll probably trade for a new top 4 guy. Possible destination for Bieksa, maybe take a chance on Redden or just bite the bullet and overpay for Souray... there aren't that many guys out there for sale.

    I don't expect the flames to win the cup, but I think they have positioned themselves to be competitive for the top spot in the north-west division. I'm a fan of them bringing Tanguay and Jokinen back, especially at the price they got them at.

    They'll be lucky to make the playoffs. I give better odds on everything coming together in Edmonton than seeing the Flames somehow mesh as a team and not look like the mess they did last year. And it takes a special kind of homer to like those two signings after the years those guys are coming off of. Check their stats from last season. Tanguay played 80 games in the same top 6 as the rocket richard winner and got 10 goals and 37 points in a contract year. Yeah, that's something to look forward to. We have a guy on a pro tryout who's probably going to sign for league minimum who had a better year. As for Joker, there's only one word: "cancer".

    Both players had shitty years, but I don't think the last year was representative of either of their abilities. I have more hope for Tanguay given the chemistry he had with Iginla during his previous stint with the Flames. Hopefully their performance's will speak for themselves, time will tell!

    Morrison could prove to be a great signing for the Canucks, but he has a lot to prove after three mediocre seasons.

    I would be happy to make a friendly wager on whether or not the Flames make the playoffs if you are at all interested.

    Jokinen and Tanguay's abilities at this point make them potentially 50-60 point guys. Iginla is a ppg guy though he wasn't last year. After those three there isn't much there. Relying on Hagman, Stajan and Bourque is not a recipe for offensive success and the D isn't even as good as last year. I don't see how you can look at it as a big upgrade, and I definitely don't see how it could be a big enough upgrade to go from missing the playoffs to division champs.

    I save my betting for hockey pools. Though if I knew you in person I'd probably take that.
