    Yeah, I'm sick of the hype too. I just wanna see him play.

    Raffi Torres has already been banned for half of this season for yet another potential career-ending check. This guy needs to be kicked out of the league.

    I've been sayin' that for five years. It seems he can't play 2 games w/o hittin somebody in the head. I don't know why any team would want him.

    I say this as a Sharks fan: **** Raffi Torres. I've hated him for nearly 10 years now, ever since this hit on Michalek, and certainly never wanted him on my team. It was so disheartening to hear all the cheers as his name was called at the preseason game I went to a few weeks ago. I'm glad that more fans are wising up to what a scumbag he is. It's a shame it had to come like this though with another player down from an illegal hit to the head. 41 games is not long enough and I wish Sharks management continues to keep him sidelined after the suspension until his contract is up. I'd gladly give up the salary cap space if it means he never wears teal again. Even better if he never plays hockey again.

    In other tangentially related Sharks news that should surprise no one, Pavelski was named the new captain. So we got that going for us.

    Torres along with Matt Cooke should've been kicked out of the league some time ago. I love how Torres raised his hands up, feigning innocence after the hit. What an idiot.

    Haven't watched anything besides the Habs and Leafs opener. Really hectic schedule right now.

    ...however there's always time for one thing.

    LOL@LEAFS :D

    There he is!

    We kept it close for most of last night up in Montreal, but couldn't convert on a 5-on-3, and Price was wicked as ever.

    I think we are easily the two best teams in the East this year, though, so I look forward to the next bout.

    I know it's still a really small sample size, but....Arizona has definitely been the biggest surprise up to this point. If Domi and Duclair keep piling up points like crazy, and Smith is actually stable in net, they could be a fun team to watch this season.

    1 more win (currently 9 in a row) and we will tie the record for longest winning streak to start the season with 1993–94 Toronto Maple Leafs and 2006–07 Buffalo Sabres.

    LOL@LEAFS.....However, I am extremely sad that the Jays lost yesterday. :(

    The Leafs may be the doormats, but you'll always be the toilet seat of the league.

    There is nothing quite like some great, fundamentally crisp college hockey.

    Good News: Habs spank the Rangers 5-1. heels1785 :)
    Bad News: Price left game after 2nd period. Hoping it's nothing too serious. [face_praying]
