Pretty much this. Mildly excited for the draft and quite excited for July 1.

Your avatar is awesome by the way.

to be honest...hockey goes on way too long and Im glad tonight its finally done. I need the rest

As that famous expression goes...

"How can I miss you if you never go away"

Thats pretty much how I feel about the NHL right now.

I still don't think Kadri or Colborne will be moved. But yea off-season signings/trades are what I am looking forward to right now...the wait is freaking killing me.
Same here...can't move Kadri or Colborne, thats what we would be looking to draft, young centers.

Hockey is still being played! This season isn't even over and you're asking if we're pumped for pre-season? (3 months from now)

I'm more interested in the game tonight, the draft in a week and free agency in two.

How about: watch hockey and make up your mind before you fall for the wrong type of false media-hype?! None of those were hype worthy at any point of their career/development for the regular observer.

Alexander Steen is a actually a pretty good little player, I don't understand why he was even listed. The move to get rid of him was just a stroke of genius from Fletch

I don't think resigning him to play 3 million dollars to play on the 3rd line is a great idea when we had Armstrong who is more of a prototypical 3rd liner. I'm not upset Steen was traded, but I would of wanted a much better return that Stempniak. Oh, and I wanted to trade Stajan opposed to Steen considering Stajan was getting ice-time.

Yea, your right. Been out on course early each of the last 7 years. Playing
golf(wack--f*&%) can be like watcing the Leafs sometimes. But next spring I am sure I won't be on the course until late June cause I will be busy watching the Leafs in the cup finals.

i'll be excited for pre-season once we get a better idea of what we're going into next season with. the only excitement in pre-season is the young guys/prospects battling it out for spots...and for all we know, some of those guys (Kadri, Colborne, etc) will be moved in the offseason.
Well its about 6pm and I'm pretty excited about the buds on ice

For better or worse (better hopefully) I am looking forward to hearing plenty about D'Amigo, Blacker, Colbourne, McGinn, etc.

BTW Go Bruins.

Sorry.. I'm not "hyped" at all about the pre-season games.

I will, however, be mildly curious to see what will happen at the Draft next week and during the up-coming Free Agent Frenzy period.

Beyond that, there is very little for me to get excited about. The Leafs have been a clusterf**k for the last several years, and I really don't see that status changing for the better any time soon. Too many holes need to be filled, and it doesn't appear that there is a sufficient number of quality players to go around, so the Leafs will likely continue to have a difficult time trying to properly fill those holes.

Until such time as Burke (or his successor) can build a legitimate play-off/Stanley Cup contender, then I'll get "hyped".. but not before then. By then, there might actually be something good worth getting "hyped" about.
