Welcome to a new season. For any of you new scrubs, don't be pussies and you'll be alright. Make your season predictions here, and/or including excessive ridicule of such things as the new format, uniform tucking, and David Clarkson's contract. Good luck to everyone, and remember, the Leafs have to win eventually!

allen-vatanen

Plus Getzlaf's getting banned if the Hawks lose one game

It'll be an uphill battle no doubt

Most teeth lost per team.

I know it sounds like I'm just here to take the piss but I do have a semi legitimate interest in following hockey, despite knowing nothing about it.


My advice for getting into hockey: Pick a team and root for them. It makes it that much more fun. A lot of people I talk to who somewhat enjoy hockey but can't get into it it's just because they don't have a rooting interest.

You don't have to have a legitimate reason to pick a team, just pick one.

You don't need a legitimate reason to pick any one team, but there are many legitimate reasons not to pick certain teams:

Vancouver - diving, soft, intent on destroying the sport of hockey. I won't even bold them because there is nothing bold about this franchise.
Edmonton - scummy organization that decided intentionally losing to get high draft was the best way to build a team. They're now stuck in a cycle of losing.
Ottawa - there are no real Ottawa fans. Any fans they do have are so swept up in the stank of Swede left on their team by Alfredsson (and Karlsson) that they can't even think clearly anymore and given such they would love to see North American hockey turned into the Swedish "variant" (I hesitate to even call it hockey) of hockey which emphasizes soft play, diving, and starting scrums and then hiding behind the refs. Running goalies and then not defending your actions is rampant in the Swedish form of hockey
Toronto - see Ottawa, except they have the largest fanbase in hockey and for the most part the fan base is just as idiotic as the Senators fanbase. Blame Sundin for swedefying Leafs fans. Luckily Brian Burke and Dave Nonis have brought some toughness back to the team an now some of the fans are seeing the light.
Florida and Carolina - see Edmonton. They decided it was more fair to the hard working but still shit teams (Calgary Flames) to tank and steal the high draft picks from organizations that truly deserve them (Calgary Flames, Nashville Predators).

Others can feel free to add to the list.

Well the joke is that I currently live in Chicago and the only hockey game I've attended was a Blackhawks game against the Coyotes, so that really was my reason for making my first post in this thread I'd probably root for them just for virtue of that fact.

Does Houston still have a hockey team? Are they any good?

Then they got another team, but in Austin. They're not doing so well because all the hipsters preferred the Iowa Chops.

I actually fucking hate Flames fans. The majority of them are possibly even more retarded than Canucks fans.

>Baertschi will have his confidence shattered by Burke and Feaster publicly calling him out for being complacent
>why turn Baertschi into a third line grinder he's an offensive zone guy he doesn't need to play all three zones that just makes him a grinder if he plays in all three zones
>Monahan is so great oh my god but they're going to hurt him by giving him 3rd/2nd line icetime to start the season!!!

That does suck, and the dude deserves to finally play a full season in the NHL, but Tatar will be snatched immediately off waivers, obviously, and Samuelsson will hopefully take his spot on the third line. Poor guy, he must be pissed.

I don't really think hybrid icing is going to help player safety at all. Players are still going to go hard into the boards when there's a footrace and otherwise they're just calling play dead like 1-2 seconds earlier and they'll still have to gather the puck anyway.

Just go to no touch and be done with it. I guess the players really don't want another foster/pitkanen incident
