Take a look at Phoenix's lineup these days. It includes:

Mueller
Turris
Boedker
Porter
Carcillo
Hanzal
Tikhonov

That's just an insane amount of young offensive talent. And that's ignoring the old guys, including Jokinen and Doan.

it could be a black and blue year in the standings for the former Jets. being in a division with San Jose, Dallas and Anaheim doesn't help their cause, but if they can play consistent all year they just might be able to beat out one of those teams (maybe Anaheim) to squeak into the playoffs.

I'm thinking a little farther out, like 2010-2011. That team is going to score 300 goals.

Sutherby has already matched his assist total from all of last season. When that team's 4th line is scoring, look out.

Afternoon hockey on a work day (sort of) is fantastic. Isles/Sabres tied halfway in the first, and 4-3 in Toronto over St. Louis, Toronto about to go on a power play.

Ed - There are feeds for both on channelsurfing.net

Center Ice is really coming through with home and away feeds today, and supposedly some HD.

yes, I meant to post about that, they have many more home and away feed options this season, very nice; I heard DirectTV had this before, but Comcast CI has expanded the channels for CI and in connection is giving more options H/A and select games in HD to the viewer. With HNIC now on NHL Network plus some games on NHL Network or VS, it is nice to have some additional reasons, other than just the multitude of game options, to invest in CI.

Well rangers nation and the hockey world at large just took a huge hit.

Alexei Cherepanov died today in game.

Details here: http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=252547&l...=topStory_main

Posts in the prospects thread about it say it might have been Jagr who he collided with on a line change that precipitated the event.

Islanders PP looks about like the Caps PP did in the Hanlon years.

Nice to not be seeing that around here anymore.

Suts had a decent game last night. Throwing his body around in the 2nd and also had an assist on a really, really weak goal against Bryz. To be fair there was a slight screen by the Dman but still.

Chicago would be pretty good with some added veteran scoring/playmaking.

Right. Also! Comcast Chicago has an overweight bulldog for a mascot, and it's working for me in a big way.

Found it!

http://chicago.comcastsportsnet.com/...p.asp?ID=47901

It's a portly Chicago bulldog named, 'Deep Dish' by fan acclaim.

Awesome.

I agree, that wasn't exactly a Gretzkyish pass Sutherby made. A simple drop pass that Parros nailed and Bryzgalov missed. I don't miss Sutherby at all

There's not a heck of a lot of pace to this Pennsylvania rivalry game.

True! Though it doesn't seem to have shaken anyone up. Place is like a tomb.
