Also it looks like Boone Jenner might actually be starting on a line with Dubinsky and Gaborik. Can't believe he impressed that much in camp.

1993...ugh. I hate seeing the tobacco and alcohol signs at the stores now. To buy tobacco you need to be born on or before this date in...1995. WHAT?

It's the part I'm most excited about as well. We'll see how Jones does on that 2nd defensive pair. Could really strengthen a defense that's already pretty strong. Trotz hockey all the way.

Is everyone here aware of how deep CBJ is at the blue line? It's really not even fair since nothing gets past BOBROVSKY anyways.

10k fine for Roy.

Thinking about making a Bluejackets thread so I can discuss games by myself in there this year. Thoughts?

Having Seidenberg locked up for another 4 years is nice, but damn does Peter Chiarelli love to hand out NTC like they're candy.

city has a little buzz going on after the opener last night. I'm not an Avs fan but a lot of my coworkers are. Everyone is really excited that Roy is back, and I think last night made it a little better.

What's the O/U on how long Roy lasts? I'm thinking 60 games.

HallowBillies7 10-03-2013 08:54 PM

Tuukka picking up right where he left off, looking solid!

Kings, Blues, and Hawks might be (probably are) the three best teams in the West. Vancouver/SJ are a step below and IMO those 5 are the class of the conference.

Based on what? The Avs played the most complete game they've played in about three years. Not a bad start. Not a very big sample size, but definitely no cause for concern.

Only thing I'm worried about is him going bankrupt after all the 10k fines he's about to get :lol

Yep. I think the top 5 blue lines in the league are:

1) Chicago
2) Boston
3) St. Louis
4) L.A.
5) Columbus

Agreed, as usual, with maybe some minor order changes. Tough to rank specifically because of the different players and skill sets, but I think that's pretty solid for the top 5. Toronto is also up there, probably at #6 believe it or not.

Woo!!!! First game is a shootout win. I hate shootouts, unless my team wins.

thechad90000 10-04-2013 12:40 AM

Disappointing performance tonight. Rinne looked awful but the whole defense looked terrible in the 1st.

Looking forward to the Avs tomorrow.

Toronto is definitely up there, which is hard for me to say since I'm really not a fan of Phaneuf.

I think Chicago is the clear #1 (although that may be the homerism in me), and any of LA, St. Louis, and Boston can be any rank 2-4, depending on how I feel that day. Columbus being #5. I really am a fan of how Columbus is building their team.

IMO STL is the best because they have the best combination of young + great, but Chicago is still up there. Even though 2 and 7 are not old by any means, I would have to say that their best play is probably behind them.

Not comparing them to Lidstrom, cause he was one of the best of all times and very unique, but his best years were after the age of 30. Won all his Norris Trophies after 30. Won a Conn Smythe at 32. Two of the Cups were after 30.

Maybe he thinks he'll have an aneurysm. That's completely within the realm of possibility after the freak out the other night.

Thank god for CBJ starting tonight, a mere 24 hours after my NFL season was effectively ended. Should be a solid two weeks before I'm ready to bury them :lol
