    Carolina is on my list of sleeper teams this year. So many young studs on D, Williams signed, Aho is dirty, and Darling is a really strong goalie who's finally getting a no 1 shot

    Looking ahead, the 'Canes are back in Edmonton, on the 17th of the month. Those 2 preseason games tell me it's gonna be a good one!

    I for one, wish the Penguins would revert back to their light blue / dark blue / white uniforms. I don't subscribe to the "all Pittsburgh is black and gold" mentality.
    See my avatar for my vote.

    Curious; is there any other city where all the pro teams have the same colors?

    I can't say I dislike the old Scouts uniforms - they kept much the same when they moved to Denver to be the (original) Colorado Rockies. Then off to NJ. The first green and red of the Devils were rather hideous.

    see, I like the blues, but I really like the black and gold. As long as they keep the skating Penguin and don't go back to the Robo-Penguin or the pseudo-Rangers block letters, all is good.

    I don't disagree; the latest uniforms are fine. I truly hated the "flying pigeon" years as well as the Vegas Gold.

    Nothing ever topped these for ugly, though:

    Kinda puts a smyl on your face

    The yellow version was even more hideous...like a school bus running a crosswalk. Couldn't happen to a better team :lol: They actually paid $100,000, in '78 currency, to a San Francisco outfit, to come up with those things! Humour has it they were of Chinese decent, hense the frying vee...

    Hoping the Wild will finally do something. The status quo is streaks of playing great, then tank it for a while.
    Off topic, and no intent to hijack- but the “North Stars” name should have been mothballed until they got a new team.

    Thursday can't come soon enough! Very excited to see some old and new faces on the 'Hawk lineup along with some changes in their on ice approach to the game.

    Yep, those were bad. I thought those have some historical significance - do you really think someone somewhere said, "let's take ridiculous colors and align them in a ridiculous V-pattern"?

    I quickly looked online, and the Vancouver Millionares had a general V pattern on their jerseys.

    In the Atlantic Division, only the Toronto Mapleleafs and (possibly) the Tampa Bay Lightning [if they stay healthy] will be ahead of my Boston Bruins this season. We've got some young guns ready to make some noise. Though this may be Canada's best shot at getting a Cup (Edmonton).

    BTW, The NHL is never content with keeping ratings low...


    I hear they want to slow the game down by enforcing FACEOFF violations this year!

    I'm thinking you may want to add MTL to that mix. When Price is on, tough team to beat.

    I really thinking Edmonton is on the rise, but they are a couple years out from true contention.
    Huge McDavid fan (since he played OHL for my hometown Erie Otters), but in reality they need a small amount of seasoning.

    Not at all. Patrick Roy could stand on his head and help the Habs win a Cup (1992-93) but Price can't stay healthy enough to win a bacon pancake breakfast. The Habs are on the downward trend.

    Yes. They are still somewhat youthful but they better win now. Because a lot of clubs are rising as well. It's now or never.
