    After suffering Kevin Lowes Oilers for a decade, things are finally looking very promising for the team...bring on the regular season!

    Taking my lunch break to go pick up my copy at GameStop now! Can't wait to play NHL Threes again. That was so much fun in the beta

    Edit: I just see now you are actually talking about the NHL and not the game haha.

    But YES! So stoked for regular season. The Flyers had a rookie game vs. the Islanders the other night for free, it was awesome.

    Nolan Patrick is a stud and finally our blue line is heading in the right direction

    I'm in Winnipeg... and we are cautiously optimistic about our franchise as well. But I must admit, the Oilers seem to have one up on us. I suspect there will be a big shift in the Canadian teams this year... Edmonton should be a dominant player in the league while Winnipeg and Toronto should be very competitive... the complete opposite of just a couple years ago.

    How does a thread get the "Official" designation? Do the mods have to give approval? If I start another thread about the NHL, do I have to say that it's an unauthorized thread?

    Also, Calgary, Ottawa & Montreal, should all be competitive...while the local Canuckleheads will be in the Canadian basement...what a heartbreaker ;)

    The Red Wings have a brand new arena to play in!

    The Griffins are fresh off of a Calder Cup championship, and have lost half of the team to free agency...a couple guys are going to be skating in Vegas, I think Mitch Callahan is headed to Edmonton, and a couple other dudes are bound for Europe.

    I'm pretty sure my guys aren't going to three-peat, but that's OK. Back to back sure felt nice!

    Wait, did the Canes win last year? :D

    Anyway, don't count the Pens out for another, although it will be a big challenge.

    There's a few teams that weren't so good the last few years that should improve. But my list of improved / contenders

    Carolina - good young team.
    NY Islanders - Waiting for them to make a move upwards
    Columbus - watch out for these guys with the additions they've made
    Edmonton - certainly trending upwards, could truly be a Cup contender
    Nashville - if Johanssen stays healthy they can repeat a Finals trip
    Minnesota - I actually had them picked to win it all last year.
    Philly - pains me to say as a Pens fan, they may have turned things around.
    Ottawa - didn't have a great reg season, but within 1 goal of Finals last year, could be very good.

    Great time to be a lightning fan.
    Great owner, great GM, roster loaded with talent, now if they can just stay healthy...

    I live in Raleigh now, but grew up in the Burgh. Canes are my 1B, but that is a distant second to my Pens. :cool:

    I'm not sure a Rangers fan has much room to smack talk. :lol:
