Well they won't have a full season to fall apart like usual, so maybe. You have to get past the rebuilt Canes first. I would wish them good luck, but I don't have it in me. It's going to be fun watching Skinner, and Semin snipe the Caps. I can't wait!

i wanted Semin on the Avs but the bastards were being cheap.
Ovie with Oates as coach should become better than ever.
now if the Avs could get a coach...

Didnt think we would see that many games if a deal got done. Interesting to see this schedule. Training camp will be short as most of these guys were playing or at least staying in shape.

i greatly dislike the Canucks but it's true. they have been arguably the most talented team in the NHL the past 4-5, they had one of the top 2 goalies in the league and kept choking in some way in the playoffs.

Excited to see what a healthy Sid can do. We need another defenseman tho and possibly another winger.

the bolded is just never a true statement

He is injury prone.

btw, I was at fedex today and people start chanting C-A-P-S caps caps caps in the 4th quarter and after game had ended.

I was thinking to myself; "I guess it's been so long that people forgot about the choke jobs" Thought you would like that as a pens fan lol

FWIW, Brett Hull believes Ovie will blow up under Oates. Like 70+ goals blow up.

I forgot the exact article but it read like Ovie + Oates = deadly

I don't think he is injury prone...he has only had the concussion issue and a high ankle sprain issue back in 08. He should be good to go now.

Not sure how good Washington will be this year. They lost Semin...but he also brought negatives to the team. PIT needs to add a winger and one more get defenseman.

He seems tentative to me, but we will find out. I do think this lockout helped him out from concussion standpoint.

As for the caps, fringe playoff team and need a deadline scoring winger acquisition IMO to be legit contender. Im glad they got rid of Semin, it was time to cut ties. Although, things always seem to work out for guys who go to Carolina and you can't go wrong with double Staal down the middle so I expect them to be at top of Southeast with TB/WSH fighting for 2nd.

You ready for another year of dump and chase hockey?? I can't stand Sacco...I almost didn't care there wasn't any hockey for that reason. I want to see major strides from Duchene. He was pretty disappointing last year.

People are uneasy. The Flower has been great in the regular season he last few years but outside of the TB series he has struggled recently in the postseason (MTL and PHI).

Actually PIT will have a great defense pretty soon to help him....but prolly not this year as most of our stud prospects are prolly a year away from making a meaningful contribution. They need Martin to get a lot better and fast.

Sacco is just a bad coach. his strategy and doghouse issues are wildly frustrating.
if he'd have more of a freed offensive system and less distinct restriction and dump hockey the team would play a lot better.

Still spending my $$$ on the Colorado Eagles. It will take me a while to get over this stoppage, regardless of who was at fault.

I'm hoping most of it is just being a young team. At some point guys need to start producing. When your highest scorer has 55 points and the 18 year old rookie leads the team in goals, it usually means another year of no playoffs. Like I said earlier...I'm hoping for big things out of Duchene and Landeskog.

Kudos to you. I gave up my caps season tickets to another STH. No obligations this year for that and I don't know when I will go back, if I do.

Your missing out. Hockeymonkey.com had killer deals on customized authentic jerseys.

it's not just a young team. the only guy who got significantly better is ROR.
the rest either regressed or stayed the same.
