Not speaking for others, I was just excited to have hockey to watch. The fact that the Devils won 4-1 means nothing, because those rosters are diluted with minor leaguers and/or guys that won't even make an AHL roster.

The exciting thing is watching all of the young guys they bring a lot of energy to the team.

part of me agrees..however...with all of the idiocy of professional football these days, even pre-season hockey is a welcome site...

at least with hockey, I know the players will always respect the game and stand for the anthem..

as bad as the Rangers and Islanders game was I still found it enjoyable....

The Pittsburgh Penguins will be very good again this season. Sorry haters, but I don't think this will be a surprise.

GO PENS, let's three-peat!!! (:oD

*** I Love This Game ***

That was me... long, long, long ago.

I know that as a person living in Montreal, I am supposed to be a wild fanatic... all of those Stanley Cups, The Rocket, Mr. Beliveau, The Flower,...

But... when a hockey journalist who writes for Sports Illustrated, is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, and is a member of the Hall of Fame Selection Committee says on the radio that fan favourite players are gone this year because the current coach does not like Russians, and the previous coach got rid of PK Subban because, well, because he was PK, a huge fan favourite and a fantastic player, I am listening attentively.

And now, they are touting Jonathan Drouin as the next coming of Jean Béliveau when he hasn’t played a single game in the uniform yet.

Give me a break.

The Nordiques tried to make an all French team... they are in Colorado.

And the Canadiens are rotating three French speaking coaches to appease politically minded journalists: Therrien (Twice), Julien (Twice), Vigneault (guess that he is the next coach for a second time)

So, NHL Hockey 2017 - 18... yippee.

Despite sounding downers, I hope that you all enjoy your hockey season...

Go Toronto, Go Pens, Go Sens, go anybody but not the CH.

I am... that has nothing to do with it...

Thanks for asking... : )

I just do not feel that this is the way to go.

I do not think that politics should interfere with sports.

The two have never mixed well.

Quebec Nordiques are a prime example.

I couldn't agree more. Sports should be an escape from such things. Btw, as a kid, my favorite player was Yvan Cournoyer. The Hab's had so many great players in that era.

You gotta remember, in Montreal hockey is not a sport, it's at a level a little above a religion. Even the dynasty teams of the 70's had their detractors and armchair coaches & GM's, wondering why the team didn't win each series 4 straight, and why they didn't win every game 10-0. There will never be total hockey happiness in Montreal. If they win the cup this year the Gazette headline will be "What About Next Year?"
Look on the bright side Montrealer, at least you're not a Canucks fan

I do enjoy the sport but not to the extent described above, although the description is accurate. A long time ago, when I was a university student and did not have much money, I paid $5.00 for a standing room ticket. It was a birthday present from me to me. I had never been to a game in person. I was totally disappointed. The show was better on TV, heck, it was better on radio. So, since then, I do not spend my hard earned money on attending sports of any kind. Those guys make millions today. Good for them. But, it will not be my money.

So, I wish you all a great season. I hope teams do well and that fans enjoy. I will be listening to games but that is where it will end.

PS: Thank you Woody, thank you Cagey.
