Don't be fooled the Lightning have improved but they are not a powerhouse.

they are hella slow.......Roberts, Malone, Recchi? Please.

Rangers shouldn't get blown out.

Correct. Rangers have chemistry troubles in the start of the seasons because of the changed rosters, but a Tampa Bay team that has exchanged just as many players bonds together in 15 minutes becomes a "power house". Hold the horses and stop the coach.

They need just as much time as Rangers to find their groove with their new squad and I expect Tampa to have it tough in the start of the season, just as us.

Then that's news to me and many else. As far as I know, Prucha plays, Korpedo plays, Sjöström, Rissmiller and Fritsche doesn't. Why Fritsche doesn't get the chance, I don't know.
--

In other news, Rangers players had a full scale riot between around 150 Croatians football fans (Dynamo Zagreb) and about 70 policemen outside their hotel.
Quote:
- It was chaos outside the hotel and it was just for us to keep away, says Henrik Lundqvist.
- It was a full fight everywhere.
- Some were curious and went out to have a look, but then they ended up in the middle of the rain of stones and bottles, says Näslund.

The fight started when the police were about to arrest two Zagreb fans for making nazi salutes and urinating on the town square. Then the other fans attacked. Two policemen were injured in the confrontation and nine Zagreb supporters had to be taken to the hospital for their injuries. The Swedes in Rangers were never in danger.
- No, for our part it was cool. We kept away, says Henke.
Sather also confirms what he's said earlier. If Sundin want to play in NYR, he'll make room for him.
Quote:
... - Yes, we want him here if he decides to keep playing in NHL. I think Rangers would be perfect for him, says Sather...
... - But I both think and hope he will do it (make up his mind) during the autumn. And then we want him to play for the Rangers, says Glen Sather
But will you fit him in under the cap roof (Rangers have $2 million left to spend right now)?
- If he wants to come here, I'll fix it.
That's a straight answer from Rangers' general manager who wants to see Sudden play on Broadway already this winter. He's among Sudden's big fans.
- No one can question what he has done in this league. He's one of the greatest.
What can the Rangers offer that no one else can?
- Alot. He won't have to travel as much as we're in a good spot geographically. New York is also a city where he can be more anonymous off the rink.
Have you spoken with him personally?
- No, but we have some contacts through his former agent Mike Barnett who works for us nowadays...

... When Vancouver put their giant bid on Sudden earlier this summer - 20 million USD for two years - it was supposed that he would play with Näslund.
- Yes, when I spoke with Vancouver they explained they wanted me to stay if Mats Sundin arrived, Markus tells us.

When Sudden couldn't leave a decision, neither did Markus Näslund receive a new contract offer. Despite that his own agent Mike Gillies became the new GM for Canucks.
- But there's no bitterness between me and the franchise, says Markus. I knew early they would like to build for the future and when the deal with Sundin didn't become reality, I wanted to seek my own challenges myself...
... - Yes, it would be fantastic if Sudden came here. He's a great player that no one would say no to. But first he has to decide if he wants to keep playing, says Markus.

An interesting autumn is about to come - even off the ice.

I agree that no-one knows how a first game will go.

But Tampa was a bottom feeder last year, and they will be a somewhat better bottom feeder this year.
Last year does not matter.

Again, completely different team.

Stamkos, Vrbata, Jokinen

Believe it or not, but those three added to Lecavalier, St. Louis, and Prospal... that is a hell of an offense.

Stamkos, Vrbata, and Jokinen each have the potential to pot 25-30 goals this year. Added to the above 40 goal scorer and two 30 goal scorers?

(yes, Jokinen has the potential to score that much on that team. If you people seriously believe that CALLAHAN can score 20+ in the NHL, then Jokinen who scored 16 last year, has that potential)

People are vastly underrating what the Lightning may be capable of this year offensively. Their defense and goaltender may be another issue (which i believe is underrated as well).

Fritsche scratched?

I think that is a mistake on Renney's part.

Orr? Seriously? Orr is playing in a game where speed matters? Mistake!!

Let Voros deter Malone. Or Orr... one or the other, not both.

So for all of this horse manure about the 4th line going to be more productive, it is the same garbage? Voros and Orr with Betts does not make for a productive line. Not in the LEAST.

For anyone who has the NHL Network channel, if you tune in now (11am) there is a pregame show.

And then of course there is MSG's pregame show at 11:30am.
