    Ok, that brought up another subject I forgot to discuss. What does everyone think of OLN covering hockey? I am not sure. I don't like that Kieth guy, I can't remember his name. He might have been a player once, but he's about as clueless as a newborn in a topless bar when it comes to hockey. He said Manny Legace isn't that great a goaltender. Um, hello, moron, who's been playing all these games and helping the Wings to the record they have? Legace is #1 material and Osbad (Chris Osgood, I'm one of the few Wings fan who can't stand his sorry butt and wish they never took him back) who STAY in the minors. Other than that, I thin OLN is doing an OK job, I sure do miss nhl2nite.:_| :_| :_| I hope ESPN picks up the NHL later in the season or next. Tired of seeing the old reruns of the WSOP.

    LET'S GO RED WINGS!!!!

    Gee what are you talking about?? that NEVER happens.... :rolleyes: For real...my husband has played goalie for some 12+ years...and after we moved here and he started playing again, he's gone through the same thing. No support, but you have to stand on your head to block every shot...He hasn't even played this year and that's part of the reason...it makes the game no fun. Plus the guy who runs the league is a total hoser..

    At least your leauge director didn't come to you at the end of the summer season and tell you that since we didn't say something at the begining of the Summer season, we don't have any room in the Winter league, but you're number 1 on the waiting list. Bulls#!t if you ask me, I've never played on a league that did that. You played summer, it was automatically assumed you were playing winter and vice versa.

    Ok I bumped this thread because it's almost playoff time and the races are really heating up!!! Everyone knows who I'm going for and with 8 games left it shouldn't be too hard to get 120 points for the season!!! Yes, that is THE best team in the NHL right now, the DETROIT RED WINGS!!!! For you Avs fans out there, maybe we'll meet you in the playoffs, MAYBE, but I doubt it. But seriously, I do think it will be the Wings in the West and either Carolina or Ottawa in the East. The only team I could forsee in the West knocking the Wings out is Dallas but I doubt that will happen.

    What are your opinions???

    2 teams that nobody wants to play against in the West are Detroit and Anaheim. Anahiem is one of the hottest teams since the Olympic break and on a tear right now. Gigure is almost looking like he did in 2003 when they made it to the finals..

    Are you sure you talking about the right team??? I know San Jose has been on even more than Anahiem. In just the last 2 weeks they leaped from 10th to 5th place. They're playing Nashville, which (as a Wings fan) I hope they eliminate. The Snivlanche play Dallas, which they BETTER eliminate, Wings will take out Edmonton, and I'm pretty sure the Flames will burn the Mighty Dorks.

    But when it all comes down to the end, I predict the Cup will come home to Hockeytown!!! GO RED WINGS!!!!!!!

    Sure about those Wings, since the Oilers just took them to double OT the other night?

    Anaheim started their back up goaltender and lost 2-1 in OT....they were completely in that game and both of the Flames goals were down low junk goals....

    The NHL play off's are the best!!

    I hate it when my two teams have to play each other in the playoffs. Especially when my #2 team beats my #1 team. C'mon Philly, beat Buffalo this time!!!

    Well EP, it made up for my husband's team -- the Devils sweeping my team - NY Rangers in the first round ;)

    Apparently our cat likes to watch hockey with us. Until of course a goal is scored and I yell at the top of my lungs. :p
