I so wanted to go watch those games :'(

Anyway, I predict that the Ducks will lose in the Western Final to either the Sharks or the Flames or the Wings. As for the East I see the Penguins and the Rangers in the final. I'd like to see Pittsburgh win it if the Ducks don't.

I'm worried. The Leafs have not looked good in the pre-season, and Toskala has been, to put it gently, shaky. I'd start Raycroft opening night. Got a feeling he's gonna have a good year.

By all rights, we should make the playoffs this year. And who knows how Bell will fit in once he gets back. Anyways, go Leafs.

I have no idea what to expect from the Bruins this year. I said last year that they were gonna have a much better season than 05-06, and it was only mildly better, if that. So I'm gonna go into this season with fewer expectations and hope that they surprise everyone.

We are still hanging onto that playoff spot. I think we have a somewhat tight grip on it even with all of our injuries.

Bergeron, Fernandez, Ference, Ward, Thornton... not good

Fernandez has been cleared to practice so he will be good to go soon. Bergeron isn't going to play until AT LEAST the new year. We really need to trade Murray, he is really struggling. I hear Hossa is on the market and with Savard here it could be a possibilty. I have heard some rumblings about it anyways.

Dude no one but like Ottawa in the East has a tight grip on anything. Boston is a few game losing streak away from 13th, that being said they are also a winning streak away from 4th. So point is tight grips in the east don' exist heh unless thy name is Ottawa and maybe Carolina.

Sure but if Toronto decides to actually play decent hockey again, it's a toss up. Being 4 points up on 13th is not a tight grip, regardless of who you are playing next especially since that team is right there with you.

Pens waived Recchi. Recchi helped Crosby mature last year, but late last year and this year so far he's really lost his touch. Doesn't help that he's always a healthy scratch, but that's life in the NHL... Calgary is mildly interested in picking him up.

The Kings might trade Rob Blake, give him another chance on playing with a contender... back to the Avs???

Dude the guy was getting 1rst/2nd line duty, and 1st Powerplay squad time, he as playing frequently with Crosby, the only reason he stopped being put there was because he wasn't producing whatsoever.

Don't get me wrong Therrien blows, but the minute the Pens started scratching Recchi and finally then got rid of him, that's when they started to turn their season around. Recchi was doing nothing with 1 line duty, with more minutes than Malkin, so don't give me this not used properly BS

Did you guys hear Bettman's statements during the All Star events. He talked about what Selanne/Neidermeyer did and he's going to possibly do something to stop this type of thing from happening. He's not going to impose a knee jerk rule on it, but he's not comfortable with what happened.
As for me, I don't really see the problem. If anything this potentially very disruptive to The Ducks.

Bettman also talked about the strength of the Canadian franchises and that *if* there was expansion Canada would be seriously looked at because of it's strength.
Nice to hear, because it seems like we're forgotten in the grand scheme of things. Now he backed away from Canadian teams if there was relocation, not that he ruled it out, but he didn't like that subject.

Being from Detroit, and being relatively close to Toronto, I can say I've been a fan of Sundin my entire life. I understand you wanna play for a team that you've been with for your entire career. All Sundin does is talk about how he wants to help the Leafs rebuild. If he were to be traded to a contender, the Leafs would get A LOT of help. Sundin then plays for the contender, has a chance to win the cup, and then whether or not he does or he doesn't, he goes back to the Leafs in the offseason. But for him to say no and not go through with this, he is not helping the Leafs to rebuild, he is hurting that process
