The team's first-rounder in 2011, Sven Baertschi (No. 13), will also begin his first full NHL season, though he's had a disappointing training camp.

"It's a lot like farming," Burke said. "Sometimes you've got to plant the field and you've just got to sit and wait. You can weed if you want. You can do some other things, but basically you've got to wait and you've got to see what that crop is, you've got to see if the weather cooperates and sometimes you've got to wait and see.

"What do we have? What are we going to have? What are some of these young guys going to turn into? I think it's a fair question, but we get paid to be patient."

Nothing like a season opener against the most bitter of our bitter rivals.

Hudler - Backlund - Galiardi sounds like a pretty fast line. Interesting too. I like it.

Hartley wanted him to watch the first game to understand the team and the systems. He said they have to teach Colborne everything they went through in camp before they feel he is ready to play.

Yes, I too have a bitter taste towards the team we see once or twice a year, for some reason.

I sent a message to Ninja about the GDT, given that this is the first game of the year. If I don't hear back by 6:00pm, we can explore the option of making a new thread and merge the two. Only if its that important to people.

Can't you just edit his post as a mod? Or am I mistaken? I can send you the full Avatar list as well.

I can either make a new one or post it in this thread and he can copy and past.

I can, but I would prefer to get his blessing first, so I did message him.

I'm not going to lie, I'm terrible at making threads and getting the details right with pictures

Let's wait a little bit to see if he responds, and if not, we can explore alternatives

Either or.

I'll update the OP with something better if someone does something better. Or something.

Hope Wideman has a big team against his former club. All I ask is tough, hard hockey and players to play as a team.

Let's do this
