    My second favorite sport. I live in New York, but my favorite team is the Pittsburgh Penguins because of Mario Lemieux.

    We've just been having so much hockey talk in the Random Thoughts thread. I never would've expected this much hockey talk during the Olympic break either. Hopefully the break allows the Rangers to right the ship without killing the momentum the Bruins managed to get going beforehand (my two teams).

    That's one great thing about having the pros in the Olympics, we all still get to follow our favorite players on a different stage.

    Chicago has probably the best uniforms in the league, I'll give them that (especially those retro 3rd jerseys). Some kind of talented team as well.

    Well I am excited for the season to continue. Mostly because I am a Hurricanes fan, and we are 9-2 in the last 11 games. Hopefully we can pick up where we left off and maybe can make a really late playoff run, considering the long losing streaks that teams in the Eastern Conference have been going on.

    Every year it seems like we are horrible at the beginning but make a late run to barely sneak in. This year the Canes' just started off so poorly with all the major injuries, that it is a major longshot. We still have a few key guys out, including Cam Ward in the net.

    I can still dream though, right?

    Just like when they were still in Hartford. Some things never change, though they did finally get a Cup after they moved. Hartford is such a lousy city they couldn't attract many free agents to play there.

    17 goals and 17 assists in 37 games according to NHL.com. Must've had some kind of injury, haven't seen Chicago much this year to know though.

    After our incredible run in the playoffs last year, I thought we were going to be really good again this year, and possibly get another. But like I said, injuries killed us. I believe at one point we were 2-14. Ever since Staal was named Captain, the Canes' have been great.

    Sadly, I am old enough to remember Hartford, (17) but I have only been watching hockey for a few years now.

    Yeah, I believe he missed the first couple of months of the season due to some injury before the year even started.

    Thoughts on the Sharks and Heatley?

    IMO they'll probably tank in the playoffs...just like they have done for the last few years...really hope they can break that curse though...unless they are playing Detroit!

    Growing up I got a heavy dose of the Whalers from my father. He's got a couple of pucks and yearbooks from them still, going back to the days when Joel Quenneville was playing for them (another Blackhawks reference)

    I actually still have this ratty old Whalers hat from when I was a kid that I dug out when the 'Canes won the Cup. I got some strange looks at work for that, but man it still felt good lol.
