    Smile OT: Lord Stanley, here we come

    OK, I love Hockey playoffs. Love 'em.
    I love ridin to the bar to watch these guys smash each other. Great memories of '96 and '01.... I dont seem to remember ridin home...Anyway
    The Avs got some ol' timers back (Foote, Forseberg), and Sakic is back. I even heard Roy was coming out of retirement.
    I'm stoked (I dont often use that word). It always seems to be the team that catches fire at the end of the year that wins.

    Could this be the (well, another) year of the Avalanche?

    They're putting the band back togehter!

    Unfortunately, they don't have a time machine to take the last seven years of age off Forsberg & Foote. Why not complete the deal & trade for Blake and lure #77 out of retirement?

    I'm an Avs fun but I'm not optomistic about their chances. For one thing, the Avs need to step it up and figure their sh!t out or they're not making the playoffs. For another, Theodore is still the goalie and it's safe to call him inconsistent. We shall see...

    You gotta understand... I still think of the Avs as the Nordiques.

    And I'm from that Godforsaken state called Michigan.

    It's only natural.

    Are you guys talking about the league formerly known as the NHL? I thought it died three years ago. Whenever I hear about the Bruins, I don't think of my old favorite team, I just assume people are talking about UCLA.

    It would be nice if hockey mattered again.

    Look, one wash up player returning to wear he spent his most productive season does not make the sport relevant again. Actually signing a contract with a tv network that people watch would help as well as eliminating all teams from warm weather climates (except the Kings and Stars) and expanding canadian teams. I don't like that the NHL doesn't matter, but it's the truth. Gary Bettman should be put in jail for what he's done to arguably the best league in sports. It's atrocious.

    Hey I'm happy you local guys have a reason to cheer again. Plus with Yao going down the Nuggets may make the playoffs too (they were my pick for the 50 game winner that wouldn't make in the super talented western conference - looks like the Rockets are going to have problems now). But as someone who played hockey and wore his Bruins jersey with pride, I have zero interest in the NHL and will not be interested again until some things change.

    But I wouldn't bank on too much from Forsberg. He almost didn't come back at all.

    I'm thinking you're not getting the complete picture of what Footer and Peter are bringing back to this fine, fine sport.

    Hockey's back.

    Wow Patriot, you sure are a buzzkill. These guys can give the team a spark.
    Remind me not to ride bikes with you if there is a possibilty of rain.

    Its still hockey, man. The sport misses you....

    Hey I'm pscyhed for the Avs. Forsberg is a low risk high reward kind of guy and bringing Foote back was a great move. I think the Av's are coming together at the right time. My issue is much more with the league as a whole and how a sport I once listed as my favorite has fallen so far. I'm hoping that David Stern realizes how good of shape the NBA is in and decides to take over the the NHL and crack some skulls! At this point it would take something drastic to bring me back full time.

    On top of all that the owner of my beloved Bruins is a douche bag who won't fully commit to winning, so I have even less reason to watch.

    I'll keep an eye on the playoffs, and now that I live here I'd be psyched to see the Avs do well. But I'm full on focused on the upcoming baseball season and NBA playoffs!

    Sorry for being a buzzkill on this topic...I'm really an upbeat guy, especially when it comes to sports...the NHL just makes me sad.

    I didn't even know there was a seniors league in the NHL. Sakic and Forsberg's AARP cards won't get them 15% extra goals.

    Those are old photos dirtwhistles I mean Redwings. I recently remember Lidstrom getting his bell rung by Laperierre. The rivalry has returned. The Red Wings are strong this year but we just loaded up on a lot of heart and pure excitement. That can go a long ways.

    This is going to be fun......

    I respect the young guns but experience in 7 game series has to be earned. And by the way Ovechkin is better than all three of those guys combined. Do you a you tube search and watch this guy not only may goalies look like crappies on the ice, but ***** slap defensemen on the way in.....
