For the Caps fans on the board - Ovie and company open the season up tonight in Boston. It is also the debuts of Mike Knuble and Brendan Morrison. Chris Clark is healthy, as is Poti and Semin - this team is even better than the 100-pt club from last year.

Happy day! Finally a team that was built correctly, and has competent ownership! Oh, and having the best player in the universe doesn't hurt either. :)

What is this "hockey" of which you speak?

Is it like soccer?

Although I found myself rooting the Caps on last year (always been a Caps fan), I still have a sour taste in my mouth for the NHL as a whole. The strike year really dampened any enthusiasm I once had for the league.

It has been 15 years and I still can't find my way to a regular season MLB game.

But, since they are the hometown team I have rooted for since childhood, Go Caps! Just don't expect to get a dime of my money!

Sarge, just picture men skating around at up to 30-40 mph with sticks in their hands colliding with one another!

Interesting Elephant - the NFL had two strikes as well, you don't feel the same resentment towards that league? Is it because they were longer ago?

No Lanky, the NFL resolved both of those strikes before the Super Bowl. There was an entire season of the NHL lost and a World Series that was sacrificed in MLB.

The owners and players did not care enough to resolve these issues soon enough to avoid losing the ultimate goal in either sport which millions of fans love to watch.

Not to mention, those 2 strike seasons in the NFL led to 2 of our SB victories! :nana:
