    I think we have a number of hockey threads already. Perhaps you use one of those?

    Ooo yay, a general hockey thread. Leafs fan here, although the game on Saturday night against Ottawa was just dismal :p

    Dismal? I think it was rather pathetic... Since I'm a Ottawa fan the victory was very sweet. :D

    Ooh! Keep this open. All the other hockey threads more or less focus on specific hockey things.

    You lucky so-and-so!

    That's very cool, hopefully Team Canada makes it to the gold medal game too. Canada vs. Czech would be a great final, their semi-final game in the World Cup was outstanding.

    actually I got word from my brother that it is actually second row in the balcony so we can actually see better.
    Keep an eye out for two crazy Canadians wearing no shirts painted in red.

    That's still very cool. I bet Canada will be well represented in the arena, and the atmosphere will be awesome. Heck I watched the gold medal game of 2002 at GM Place when they played the game on the scoreboard screen, and the atmosphere was awesome even then.

    [link=http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=152104&hubname=nhl]Lemieux ends magnificent 17-year career[/link]

    It's kinda sad that his career ends this way with all of the health problems the guy has had fought: chronic back problems, hip problems, cancer, and now his heart condition. He's arguably the most talented player ever to play in the NHL and he never played a full season in his career. It's too bad it had to end like this.

    I do hope everyone is ready for the olympics! I already have the times written down for all women's and men's hockey games on my calendar... course, I also wrote down the time for the gold medal match-up. Guess I'm getting a bit ahead of myself. :p

    Did anyone happen to catch the retiring of Al MacInnis number? I don't know if they showed in on TV or not but I rather would have liked to see it but I was busy that night. For anyone who's Canadian and likes hockey, it's important to note that Al MacInnis is from Nova Scotia and was an awesome defenseman. I know he was missed in the 2006 Olympics. We could have used him. :p

    Poor Toronto. They put up a grat effort, so hats off to them.

    *sigh* I liked the days when they had Cujo more. I don't really cheer for the Leafs, but when they started climbing into the playoffs I was really rooting for them. Oh well.
