    Well, I've decided.

    The Leafs for most my life (I know, I know), then the Devils when I lived nearby. Never really warmed up to the Hurricanes in the 5 years we were in NC (except when the Leafs played) and I kinda lost interest. But now I've lived near Philly for more than 2 years. And you know, this town's got the right spirit. So....

    Let's Go Flyers!!!:clap

    Bruins fans, since getting tickets for opening day is probably going to be hard as hell you guys wanna meet up at a bar around Boston to celebrate hockey being back/watch the game?

    I might be able to if, it doesn't take place on the 15th. That is my wedding anniversary. While my wife understands my love for hockey, and she is a forgiving lady, I would never hear the end of it.:eek1

    I think she would catch on. I mean when Bruins games are on, she lets me watch them in peace alone in the man cave. When the newest NHL video game comes out she makes sure out kid leaves me alone at night so I can play. She never complains about any insane purchase I make when it comes to hockey, motorcycles, or guns. She never makes me do anything I don't want to do. I feel I have it pretty good. There are 4 days a year I make it all about her. January 15th is one. The other three all happen in the same week in may. That one week is hell and makes me broke.

    The good news is it seems the games don't start until the 19th.

    Wonder if Dave Nonis will be bunped up or will there be a clean sweep. Just hope they take Louungo so I can listen to sports talk here in Vancouver without the endless Where is Lou going?.

    Nonis is in (for now.) Burke stays on as a "senior advisor." Terrible timing for a firing. Can't wait to hear what this has to do with the Luongo talks.


    Please, please, PLEASE don't give up the next ten years of prospects for an aging goalie!

    Nosebleed works :lol3 or I wait for my friend with season tickets to have an extra. The big issue is if I'm just watching on TV there's a concert I'm supposed to be going to that night.

    One of these days I am going to call in a favor and get us some tickets on the glass for an ADV Bruins game. I know that I will be out of favors based on how this crowd will act. I can only imagine the asshatery that would take place when a bunch of inmates are close enough to say how they feel to PK Suban.

    Redden and Gomez are going to get bought out.
