I also wonder what our lovely HF here will be like. In the past, we cared too much. If we get a shortened season, and suck out of the gate, we'll probably just view it as a JOKE* year, and wait until next year to put our wretched hearts and overbearing arguments back into it.
Of course, even a JOKE* YEAR could be interesting.
(*"Joke" or "Developing the young guys" or "building team chemistry" ...however the front office decides to spin it.)
If any team wins the fans will be there... A 48 game season will be a boon for all 30 teams but the teams with a solid minor league program should excel... It will be a cheap cup for the winner but as many have said, a cup is a cup... The Jackets should be good based on what is going on in the minors, this could be an opportunity of a lifetime for the CBJ... they need to be ready.. I can't wait to see their defense.....and Johansen...
