      I also like the new Jets logo. I am not too thrilled with the font they used for "JETS" but I am sure they will make it look nice on a jersey.

      Flyers win the cup. Caps get eliminated first round as usual.

      Draper is set to retire. He will be missed, but it's his time to go.

      He played a few games for the panthers before signing here. It’s a two way deal, he won’t be seeing much time up in Vancouver, he'll see more time in Chicago.

      Were good at being the bad guys so why not pick up a goon eh?

      Just kidding dude. People in here love talking about all hockey, all teams!! So feel free to express your thoughts on the Sabres. The new owner is definitely showing that he wants to be a contender this coming season. It's a nice change from the old Sabres team who focused only on defense and were happy being a middle of the road team.

      They improved for sure.

      Most definitely. Last year I thought they really had a chance but decided just not to show up in the playoffs. Really pissed me off.

      But yeah they new owner is walking the walk and backing up all the stuff he said when he bought the team. Which is no doubt giving the players more confindence overall.

      While he kind of dropped off, Vanek is a world-class scorer. If he's set up with the right cast his numbers will skyrocket. IMHO matching the offer-sheet to keep him didn't handcuff the team too badly.

      Also - Myers is going to be a force.

      Best dollar the Wings ever spent. One of the key cogs of the last fifteen years. Excited to see a little younger roster working its way in though.

      In some ways I can agree with both of those statements but at the same time when watching a lot of Sabres games you lose faith in them.

      Vanek has days when he is unstoppable, almost like once you finally light the fire under his ass he wakes up but typically he doesn't do much. Thats probably because of the people he is surrounded with like you said. Roy being injured at the end of last year hurt them a lot.

      Myers looked so sloppy last year, almost like he didn't care. I hope he comes back this season and play like he did in the 2009-2010 season. He was an all around better hockey player, partly I believe because he wasn't too comfortable yet.

      Absolutely, he stayed just long enough to train his replacement in Helm

      Perfect timing IMO.

      nah, just a sophomore slump...he'll be fine. he was still a 0.5PPG d-man and was even +/-...not even that bad for his slump season.

      i bet he'll be a monster in a few years....the guy is only 21.

      Huge Leino fan and was sad to see him go I even named my great dane after him (Leino)

      I hope he does well in Buffalo. Guys slow as molasses, but man can he maneuver in traffic with the puck. I'm just waiting to see if he reproduces the success he had in Philly. How much of it was the great chemisty with Briere and Hartnell and how much was Ville.

      I'm assuming Ruff will try and put him with similar players. A speed/skill guy and a grinder to compliment his talents since he's neither

      always man, its just our thing... the bertuzzi incident, Rome hit, booin Phil Esposito and the general hate Vancouver gets from Canada... Theres allllot more. We just have always been disliked by other teams/fans. I get alot of hate, even before this years run, because there the "Bad Guys"..

      Well It's nice but I want to see it in action to get a better idea. Once you see it for a few games with the home and away colors, then I think we will be able to judge better. Remember most Canadians will like it because it pays tribute to the Snowbirds

      An arbitrator has awarded Nashville Predators defenceman Shea Weber a one-year contract worth $7.5 million.

      The Nashville captain had been seeking $8.5 million from his club, while the team countered with an offer of $4.75 million.
      Nashville offered $4.75 million? Are they serious? LOL They must not want to keep him. He will either be traded by the deadline or become a free agent over next summer. I doubt since they were this far apart in pay, that he will sign long term with them after that insulting offer.

      If Webber goes, I imagine Sutter will as well when he's a UFA next year.

      This is the problem with small market NHL teams...gotta pay to play and they can't afford it.
