I think it's hard to predict anything for this regular season. Just need to make sure you get into the playoffs and hopefully have things worked out by that point.

Really excited to see Crosby and Malkin play hockey again, obviously since 87 is extremely hungry and 71 appears to be in beast mode form already.

Good point. I forgot about him, as well as Sullivan. So perhaps I'm overestimating the impact on our team. Then again, I get the feeling that the teams that expect to win will find a reason for the short season to produce more wins, while teams that expect misfortune will find a reason for the schedule to work against them.

Just look out for teams like the Islanders who can go on points streaks.

I don't think the Pens are at an advantage. Less time for adjustments, and we know how they are sitting defensively. The forwards I don't see much issue, but adding in the changes DB was talking about and the defensive core as they sit would have me worried enough.

Advantage, every team who's not a regular perennial playoff team. There's an actual doable chance. Those teams will take that chance to task, as they should.


Your new 2013 Stanley cup champions....the Phoenix Coyotes!

Gary Bettman hands cup to, Doan. Then he has to hand it right back.


See NYR fans, the cup will come to NYC and will be displayed in the league offices.

Last, Gary gets to spend an entire week with it.
