So, any fans of the coolest game on earth. Our own Finnish League starts today and NHL next month. Can't wait til NHL season starts. Couple interesting player moves this summer, Bertuzzi - Florida, Pronger - Anaheim, - Luongo - Vancouver, Shanahan - Rangers and Malkin - Pittsburgh. I'm rooting for Leafs as usual, but i think that Flames and Mighty Ducks will be though this season again.

Best Goalie - Miikka Kiprusoff
Best Defenseman - Scott Niedermayer
Best Offensive player - Joe Thornton or Peter Forsberg
Enforcers - George Laraque - Brian Mcgrattan - Derek Boogaard
Biggest pest - Sean Avery
Rookie of the year - Evgeni Malkin

Stanley Cup Winners 2006-2007 - Calgary Flames

I used to go to every Mallards UHL hockey game until we moved. I don't really follow NHL though.

Being Calgarian...the Flames are like the ONLY way to go for me...I seriously CRIED when they lost the cup to Tampa in 2004...It's nice to know that someone thinks we have a chance! And I love Miikka. He's awesome!

loooollllll That's really true. ^^

Anyway I'm a Red Wings supporter so I was a bit disapointed by the last season cause they had the potential but their defense was waeker without Jiri Fisher.

This season should be good even if division's teams like Nashville or Colombus are better than last year. The 100 000$ question for the Wings is "Does Dominik Hasek can make another great season ???". I'm really worried about that...


To finish, I will also have a look on the only player from my country: Cristobal Huet !!! I really hope he should be as good as he'd shown last season.

Not if they continue to lose against Boston.  :D

Just kidding, it's only preseason games, it doesn't really matter.

Nice to meet you :D :D
Yes, I am from Edmonton. I live by ABC: Anyone But Calgary :lol:
Spoken by a hardcore fan of the team who went to GAME SEVEN OF THE STANLEY CUP FINALS.............
ahhh, the nostalgia. Too bad Pronger left. But don't even get me started on him.


Enforcers - George Laraque - Brian Mcgrattan - Derek Boogaard

Yeah, too bad we got rid of Georges. He's a cool guy, met him a couple of times. But really, the only thing he was good at is enforcing. He can't do anything else. But I'll miss him.

Buffalo started the season pretty good and Dallas seems to be strong as always. Here's a cool picture from Finnish league game Jokerit vs HIFK which took place on tuesday. Ryan Vandenbussche and Pasi Nielikäinen dropping the gloves, good fight. Check it out from youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxDQuQmzpd8

Well, it looks like I jinxed the Sens.  6-0 for the Leafs.  I wish the Habs were playing against the Sens tonight because the Sens were awful.  Congratulations Velvet Revolver, Toronto pulled one out tonight.  Unfortunately they will lose this Saturday against Montreal.

How about the Blackhawks? I'm amazed they won a game, let alone scored 8 goals.
