But this is a different season this time, shorter, more intense I expect a lot of blown leads all around, less disciplined play and more heartbreaks and false hopes for all the contending teams.
Nothing is a for sure this time
I agree with that.
Pierre LeBrun, from ESPN, made an interesting point in an interview I heard yesterday. The teams that have less turnover will more than likely be the teams that have success in a short season. He mentioned teams like the Kings and Blues. They have essentially everyone on the roster coming back from last year and the chemistry is there. I'm wondering Patrick, do the Hawks have a lot of turnover in the offseason or is much of the team coming back?
Another point he brought up is that the Kings will not have the Stanley Cup hangover either.
