Theres going to be a ton of things to be concerned about, hes right.

A grueling training camp to get through
A new captain
A number of rookies to evaluate for the roster
Trip to Europe for preseason and start of regular season, added travel
Extended road trip because of the renovations, added travel early
Improving Home Ice record (increased pressure this year with more homestands)
Improving the PP
Integrating the top free agent signing of the offseason
Getting Gaborik back on his game
Raised expectations across the board for a lot of the core youth, and the team in general
Upcoming Winter Classic
... and HBO filming every moment of it the first half of the season

but thats what going to make it fun. Hopefully they all keep themselves on an even plane and its not too much of a rollercoaster ride the first half. Like he said there are a lot of easy excuses.
I don't understand, HBO gets to film the ENTIRE first half of the season? I thought it was just December last time?

I think Torts is a brilliant motivator, who really promotes and creates a team first mentality so hopefully that comes through.

Now that we have the talent on the ice, I really think the Rangers challenge for the Cup this year. Just gotta stay healthy and get hot at the right time. Also need someone to take a jump up, whether it be guys like Stepan, Anisimov, or MZA.

Thats not how I read it.

HBO was there to film promos - I think theyll be back in December to film fulltime.

By the way, for those of you that dont have HBO - I'd suggest getting it if you're any sort of sports fan. The docs they do on a wide range of issues are all spectacular, including all the 24/7's

Unless you can't afford it, no reason to not have HBO for their series alone.
It's worth it.

HOWEVER

Pens Caps 24/7 will be released on DVD in November so you could always see it that way.

I cannot believe the ofseason is finally over

As for the start I'd be happy if we at 500 after it. Certainly the opportunity for a strong start has been taken away from us by NHL's PR.

All HBO tv series. Better than anything on regular tv by a mile.

It's usually way cheaper than that if you have a full bundle with the company, I think my HBO is like 5 a month. Either way though lets say its 30 dollars for the 2 months the show is on...who cares, a night out to the movies that lasts 3 hours costs more than that.

They uploaded them in 4 parts.

I'm guessing the DVD won't be in parts

Plus im sure they will include ridiculous outtakes.

They put the first episode up there but other than that nothing. On top of that, it's an edited version. What's the point then?

Agreed.

I'm hardly a basketball fan, but the documentary on Magic & Byrd was just phenomenal. I watched it twice.

Honestly, disregarding the road trip, that's not too difficult a schedule. Kings/Canucks are very good, but the rest are easily beatable, especially the Oilers, Islanders, and Jets. Should be a good start...should be, at least.

If you read it closer, you'd find out that Torts officially excused himself for not being an X and O coach. What a hole!
