    2013 NHL Season!!!!

    It's finally here again! I can't wait until the Blues open up in just 5 more days. What expectations do you have for your team? Do you think new league alignment will have any effect on your teams chances?


    With Detroit out of the division, the path for Central champs is significantly easier for both the Blackhawks and Blues. I think those two are the cream of the crop in the newly aligned Central.

    Hawkey!!!

    I'm not the biggest fan of the realignment, I liked the Detroit rivalry, but things change and this is just one of them.

    I think the Hawks and Blues are definitely at the top of this conference/division/whatever they call it. I think Nashville will still continue to struggle to score, but they will surprise perhaps.

    Looking forward to it all no matter what.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    As a fan of both the Sabres and Hurricanes, the best that I can realistically hope for is that either team somehow manages to sneak into the playoffs. The return of Cam Ward should help the Canes immensely, though the playoffs remain a long-shot, IMO.

    As for the Sabres, well, I'll never understand why Regier wasn't canned instead of/along with Ruff. It's a Loooong way back for the Blue/Gold and White.

    From a far, the Sabres seem almost nondescript. I just don't get a feel for what that team is and they just seem sort of meh.

    As a Blue Jackets fan, I am VERY excited about this new alignment, and season. I hope that we build on our second half from last year, and keep up with the scrappy play, and with as much heart as we did late last year.

    Recent rankings of teams most likely to win the Cup finds the Blackhawks at #1 and the Blues at #6. Tough division there indeed.

    A lot of places I see the Blues are ranked very high. ESPN power rankings currently have Blackhawks #1 and Blues #3. I personally think the division is going to be an easier path now that Detroit is out and both teams might get more points because of it. I believe the Blues are built for the regular season but I'm still questioning what they can do during playoff time. Hopefully Schwartz and Tarasenko take it to the next level and become those reliable goal scorers that the Blues need. How will Morrow and the new additions like Roy do? That is unclear at this point. Their defense will keep them in a ton of games though in the regular season.

    I love watching a banner go up. It made last nights suckitude by the Reds a bit more palatable.

    Excited to watch the Wings play new division foe Buffalo tonight. I think I'm excited about the realignment, but certainly will miss having Chicago in conference. Though a DET-CHI Stanley Cup some day would be amazing.

    Did you all see Roy flip out last night? I don't know how it's going to play in Colorado but certainly things won't be dull all year there:

    That was something else indeed. Might be a bit much considering he was up 6-1.

    I would say the same about the first six minutes of this game.
