nhl 2010-11 season preview...



dude...

nhl 2010-11 season is finally here..

some thoughts..... *


the blackhawks wont repeat as stanley cup champs... sorry dave and mikeytoo...

puck daddy blog over at yahoo! sports/nhl says that washington will win it all.... bwah! as if!

the hockey news says its going to be vancouver... actly thats a really good choice...

the kings will make the playoffs again this year, but alas, again no cup...

pittsburgh will make the cup finals... GO PENS!!

the ducks are weak on d, especially with the departure of scott niedermayer and last seasons trade of chris pronger to the flyers...

they will however, make some moves at the deadline and might just make the playoffs.. tony lydman needs to get healthy...

the maple leafs will suck again this year... sorry mads, but they are the chicago cubs of the nhl..

all due respect to ryan miller, buffalo will prolly miss the post-season....

can someone please teach ilya kovalchuk how to back-check... get used to playing the neutral-zone trap dude.... fail..

mike modano as a detroit red wing.... i see it, i just dont believe it.... (see chris chelios)

if craig anderson is as good this year as last, and foote stays healthy, colorado will be a huge thorn in the side of the canucks and the kings all season long...

drew doughty will win the norris trophy...

the penguins are better on defense than i thought after letting gonchar go... good off-season moves bringing in zbynek michalek and paul martin.... marc-andre fleury needs to have a better season... look for pittsburgh to make a move at the all-star break or trade deadline to finally find a winger sydney crosby can actly play with...

jordan staal... prolly the best two-way center pittsburgh has... id tolly build a team around this guy... get well soon dude... your team needs you...

san jose and vancouver will meet in the western conference finals...

in the east it will be pittsburgh and nj prolly... washington will ch..ch..ch...choke... fail..

the rangers are going nowhere fast.... even with the addition of alexander frolov... hes the nhl under achiever of the decade..

look for the same-oh same -oh from phx, atl, min, clb, fla, tb, car (cough.. hartford.. cough..) az, cgy, edm, nyi, dal..

blame it on the salary-cap.... or blame it on bettman....

mostly the same teams that were competitive last season will be this season as well...

ive learned to never count the red wings out of anything...

after bostons melt-down last season in the semi-finals, they have a lot to prove.. too bad they dont have the team to prove it with... btw, tyler seguin, not taylor hall, will win the calder trophy...

nhl.. its on!! cant wait...

what do think? agree or disagree, say so in the comments...

and oh yeah, go padres... fail...



- cheers... david


*disclaimer....

im watching a baseball game while i write this... i may a bit distracted, especially with my padres choking their way right out of the post-season...

so if any of my predictions are wrong, prolly most will be, thats why....

  5. I want the Avalanche to do well, ever since I spent a couple years in Denver, and got to hold the cup, I've been a fan. But really this year I am routing for the local high school team. They rock and one of our recent players has went on to play in the NHL. Plus I know a lot of the refs so I can scream personal insults at them when they make a douchebag call.

  6. @ andydrewby...
    the avalanche are the highest scoring team in the league.. and a very young team, although footey brings up the avg. age by a lot... you seem really well connected to the nhl.. i saw the avs play the kings in denver at the old mcnichols arena.... we had seats 3 rows behind the avalanche bench... good times... my h.s. graduated a world series winner shortstop and a world famous (almost famous?) tv news anchorman....

    ~ cheers...
