    I havent been this excited about a hockey season in a long time. For the first time in forever I think my Islanders are going to be in the playoffs and our farm system is second to none so this could be the start of a great decade of hockey for this franchise. John Tavares, Kyle Okposo, Michael Grabner, Frank Nielson, Matt Moulson, a healthy Mark Streit, Nino Niederriter are a good nucleus. I'm a bit worried about the defense but we'll see

    Oh yeah. Congrats Mike Modano on your retirement. Thanks for all the memories.

    Edmonton has built a very young team obviously all high round picks, who need to mature....but in time this team is going to be a wrecking ball...

    think the Blackhawks a few years before they got to the Cup and won it...

    Here's to hoping Washington doesnt fall short of playoff and championship expectations for the 3rd straight year.

    The Hall/Nugent-Hopkins combo is going to be deadly in a few years....

    Sorry Pagan, your Pens ran out of gas...still a solid road trip for them though...

    I consider myself a stars fan although admittedly I could never get into hockey at least as much as other sports. With b ball on the outs I'll probably watch it more.

    isles came back nicely gm 2. our offense lasted all of 20 minutes, the first qtr (which was twenty more minutes than gm 1). But our defense was superb. Al Montoya is looking good as the early goaltender though he gets into too many snow angel positions to be completely comfortable with him yet. wonder whats going on with nabs

    Nice win by the Avs tonight! tied it with 40 secs left, then went on to win in a shootout! PS3 has now offered the Gameday app for free, you still need the service, $150 to watch it on it, but you can watch highlights on your ps3 for free, used to be 10$

    Despite everyone trying to write us off, more than usual this year, the Devils off to a good start after a lousy opener.

    My boys arent scoring the way I would like to see them....They are actually getting pretty decent goaltending, but the chemistry within the lines will take some time...

    Edmonton lost yesterday because they gave up a goal with 2 seconds left in the game to tie it.....like they did last year against the Red Wings, then eventually lost in OT....

    Avs 6-0 on the road. Nice win tonight. Down 4-3 with 2 min left they score and win in a shoot out. This is their 4th shoot out win i believe. 0-2 at home btw.
