MN Wild pressing issues:

Who the hell is going to play goal?
Do they go after a big free agent scorer? (vanek et al)
Will they ever have a proper second pair of D, or just ride Suter 35 min a game?

Hawks big issue in my mind is, will they be able to keep everyone together?
In the NBA, the Spurs took pay cuts and look what they're doing now.
They could also use a few tougher players.
You can still build a dynasty, just not with greedy players.

U guys getting tired of his antics too?

Rangers need to some size & better D. I think Staal is scared to get hit, after his injuries.

I really think with 1 or 2 newer better defensemen & another quick forward & they're back in the Cup.

It's not his antics so much, the guy is chippy but if you call him out he'll fight you and that attitude goes far with the Bruins fans. The problem is he's not producing, in last years cup run he had some amazing goals but this year he was MIA.

My two adult children have been big fans of the Kings for several years now, and have sucked me in. I put down a deposit for season tickets about a month ago. I may actually get ok seats, ie, the upper part of the lower bowl. Staples Center is screwy in that there are at least three stories of luxury boxes before the upper deck seats, so they really suck.

There is no waiting list but I have to wait for the Select A Seat day in July to see what's what. Way better and cheaper than basketball tickets out here. As crappy as the Lakers have become, there is still something like a five year waiting list to buy into the back rows of the upper deck. I figure it would take at least a decade more to make it to the lower bowl. Not sure I will live that long.

. I had the same effect on my dad when I was a kid, even with those godawful uniforms, but goddam Rogie, Dionne, Goring et al were a blast to watch. But he's in OC. He sorta pulls for the Quacks now, but wasn't too upset when the Kings came back and beat them. The bastards never gave up. He likes that attitude. My 2 boys are all for the Kings as well.

It's easier to get Quacks than Kings tix, so good for you, Rob. You'll be able to sell the tix you can't use.

No plan for a goaltender.
