How does he look conditioning-wise? I feel like he'll have a big season if he's in good shape.

He always does that TBH. It's my only criticism of him really.

Someone on the main boards said he's supposed to be the leanest he's ever reported to a Pro training camp.

I thought I'd read that. They're really going to need to lean on him until Bogosian is back, if he can handle it he will have a big year.

Ive been mainly watching the philly-pitt game I just flipped it over during a commercial and saw him score. Philly looks really slow and out of shape. Shots are 11-3 Pitt

NBC can't get the sound levels right. I can hear the PA announcer better than the actual NBC announcers.

Yep, they look bad. Had good energy the first couple shifts right up to that bad (imo) penalty call.

Game Center (web version) seems completely overwhelmed and I'm pretty irritated about it.

One of my few uses for Firefox is Moonlight. When I tried, I got an error message warning that I may experience incompatibilities as Moonlight doesn't have full support for Silverlight 4 yet, but it loaded and streamed fine anyway.

Byfuglien looked fit and had the aforementioned slapper goal. Then, off a Little rush at the end of the first period, he put another chance off a stick/post, nearly giving him two goals already.

Ottawa looked pretty flat though, but Michalek did pounce on his one chance after Postma turned it over on a failed clear.

Prepare to be impatient even longer - NHL added one more minute to intermissions this year. Definiately going to feel it at the games as I'm one who rarely goes out and about - I stay at my seat. May have to change that...

The problem isn't between Moonlight and the service, but rather neither of my browsers are recognizing/loading the plug-in. I guess I should just manually install it as I imagine what's available in AUR is just outdated.

I usually get up and do at least a lap around the arena during intermissions, just to get up for a bit.

For the purposes of ice quality. They also reduced the maximum time for on-ice entertainment during intermissions from 5 minutes to 4.

I'm not sure - there is a thread in the main forum here about it. Something to do with the ice? - like an extra minute of non usage is going to help the ice better. They also reduced promotion time to four minutes - now the Sabres are going to make those kids shoot on Sabretooth quicker now - my guess no more little kids who can't skate and take forever to shoot and probably eliminate a shooter for each team when they do those high-school shootouts.
