    Man I knew the Islanders would have a hard time beating the Bruins. They have a deep bench. One of the best, if not best teams in the NHL.

    i'm sad that the lockout is over....now all sports scores tickers and highlights shows will now force us to suffer through hockey "highlights" and scores before they get to sports that anyone cares about...
    was really nice not to have hockey. If only we could get rid of baseball, hockey, nascar, Xgames, and golf.....i could actually tolerate sports center

    The Bruins are REAL good, though I do have questions about their D corps.

    Is this a joke?

    First of all, hockey is hardly ever on sportscenter. Second of all, that would only leave like 2 sports left :confused:

    This season has been great fun thus far. Devs are undefeated with Marty and the PK looking great. Rangers and Flyers are having bombs of seasons. Kings are playing like the team they actually are. All is well in hockey world

    You should really give hockey a chance and seriously follow the sport for one season. It's an incredible game, and the fact that it is currently out of the mainstream is really nice. When you follow the NHL, it feels much different than the NFL, NBA, and MLB. I think the culture around hockey is very unique for an American sport and once you understand that culture it is so much fun to be around.

    Since you're talking about SportsCenter, those 2 sports would be soccer and women's basketball.

    Essentially the same group that won the cup. Hamilton is exceeding all expectations early in his pro career.

    Goal tending is the question mark for me. Rask is seen as the second coming by many but he hasn't proven anything yet. If/when he goes down an even less experienced Khudobin becomes the man.

    This would be a great season to give hockey a chance.

    As much as the lockout sucked the shortened season already has a playoff feel.

    Every game counts.

    I've never been more excited about a hockey season. Well, since 1982-83.

    can get rid of those also. Never heard of anyone anywhere who turned on sports center, or any sports highlight show, EVER to look for soccer or women's basketball highlights. Ditto golf.
    I could handle baseball highlights if it were restricted to the playoffs or end of the regular season. No one cares about the other 180 games, heck the players themselves barely do.
    ESPN could restrict itself to football, basketball, MMA, and playoffs only Hockey and Baseball and its ratings would probably improve.

    What are you talking about? You think basketball is more compelling than the MLB? I'm somewhat of a basketball fan but good god can it get boring fast. Especially in todays NBA. Basically be: The Heat,Celtics,Thunder or have no shot at winning ever

    I challenge you to watch hockey this season and not like it. It's probably the purist sport in America right now.

    My Canadiens are off to a good start at 3-1.

    Too bad Max is out after an emergency appendectomy. Subban is still unsigned.
