the capitols don't even really have a team i think i read on HTR they have 8 players signed...definitly not enough for a team

After they dumped all of their veterans I think they're starting a rebuilding phase. I wouldn't be surprised if they follow along in the footsteps of Ottawa and start stockpiling talent from their farm team and other young guys...

I think this season is going to be Pittsburgs season. man what a team they got (or bought)

It is looking promising! (Pens are my favorite team.) I'm still trying to figure out how they got the money to afford all of that. I know Mario made them profitable again, but Pittsburgh doesn't exactly bring in a ton of revenue.

I have some reservations though:

Sidney Crosby - Hearled as the second coming. I'll believe it when I see it though, and he has to keep it up. Halpurn made an excellent start in Washington only to peter out later in the season.

Mario Lemieux - I know he's playing again, (again!) and I'd still love to see him, but it remains to be seen how long he lasts in the season.

I think aquiring Sergei Gonchar was a good move (not the least of which he was my favorite Capitals player.) as he'll put some punch on the blue line. I believe he lead the league in scoring for defenceman last season (or at least for a while. He was passed by someone from Detroit now that I think about it. Stayed towards the top though.)

I see Mark Recci is on the team now. Interesting.

Hopefully the rest of the team has some half-decent talent or at least the teamwork to backup their newly aquired stars. Too often teams drop a ton of cash to buy all-stars only to see them fall apart on the ice. ::cough, cough New York Rangers, cough::

I see that the Pens signed Thibault and Palffy. Maybe you can buy a good team? :blink:

Ever since they drafted Crosby, people want to play there.

well my only concern with Lemieux is his health, otherwise even at 75% his stats are amazing. In 03-04 he played 10games and managed 9pts. In 02-03 he played 62 games and managed 91pts and the year prior, in 43 games he put out 76pts! Thats not bad considering he wasnt playing for 3-4yrs prior to that. I think if he can manage a good 40games, the Pens will be in great shape, and if he doesnt, there is a lot of solid offensive power to rely on besides him. Recchi, Palffy, Crosby and Gonchar has never shyed away from putting the puck in the net either.

Ever since they drafted Crosby, people want to play there.

not to mention that season ticket sales have shot up like crazy. Hopefully this bodes well. I see teams like Chicago, Pheonix, LA, Anaheim, Columbus, Florida, Tampa all make great strides in developing their team which i think, these markets will further develop hockey as a primary sport once again

It will be a massive improvement, but I don't see them as a Cup contender. No defense and the T-bolt addition wasn't exactly a good one, if you ask me.

I'd like to see Anson Carter here.

a) He's a power forward.

b) He is from Toronto.

c) He has the cool dreads.

Anyone know why he dropped to 28 points in 2003-2004 after having two 60 point seasons in a row? Did he have a nagging injury?

Has Toronto ever had a black hockey player?

Nevermind, I can answer my own question.. Grant Fuhr.

He's not exactly an amazing scorer or anything... he's more relied on for his power. He had 2 or 3 good seasons... it could really go any way with him -- lots of points, few points, whatever.

I heard Lindros was likewise doing his physical with Toronto. He is interested in a one year deal of at least $1.5 million.

Any rumors you guys are seeing/hearing on my Flyers? We look good, but I'm afraid if someone gets injured we may not have enough cap room to get anyone ...

LOL i think the Flyers are fine. They just re-signed Esche who played great. They got a couple of young guns in the minors who im pretty sure would step up if someone got injured, but you guys r really gonna fly this year. It may be your year. That Philly/Pittsburgh rivalry is gonna be heated this season.
