wonder how long it will take 12 to get in game shape? 6 to 8 weeks or months?

Love all of this.

And mostly I love having hockey back. Wonder if they'll paint "Thanks Suckers Fans" on the ice again?

The Staals should be in shape already. That's what the offseason is for.

My concern is retrieving Semin from Siberia or wherever he's at these days.

We get to EARN the 12th overall pick this season, instead of just winning it in the lottery!

What do y'all think the chances are we get Semin to come over?

I am saying 90%. I doubt he's making more money over there, and I would bet he still wants to stick it to the Caps.

Agreed, 90%. He's coming back.

100% he'll be back. He's on an NHL contract and he's not that stupid that he'd dishonour it.

5th best odds in the East while the Panthers are dead last in the league? That's... Strange.

Yeah. Did something happen to the Panthers in the off-season that is going to make them suck? I mean I won't complain if that happens but I'm confused as to why they are so low.

Well, odds are based not on who the casino believes will actually win but how they believe people will bet, so popularity plays a role. That makes it even more impressive that they have us at 15/1.

Wow, 15/1 is quite surprising... I don't think I'd take any action on that haha... Lightning at 60/1 isn't bad, they improved in net and if Hedman has a good year those kind of odds are worth it, IMO...

I know we usually get off to a slow start (which would obviosuly doom us) but I have a good feeling about this season

Hopefully it's not a "slow start" thing and it's a "bad in October-December" thing...

That's how my heart felt this morning when I checked ESPN. The latest I'd checked my computer was 1:30 a.m.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how loud will the boos for Bettman be at the Cup presentation THIS year????????????????????????

Lastly, GO CANES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking through Chip's tweets, he seems to think Semin will be coming back.

He also says Muller said the Staals would center the top two lines. (https://twitter.com/ice_chip/status/288012385745256448)

He also said Boucher seems to be back (well, skating) from his injury.
