Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, stop that pouting, lace up the skates and check somebody into the boards because it's HOCKEY SEASON!!!! w00t!!!! Last season we saw the Pittsburgh Penguins grow up right in front of our eyes to become the Eastern Conference Champions. They unfortunately fell to the Detroit Red Wings, in 6 games, for the Stanley Cup. This year the NHL is opening up the season on October 4th in 2 cities, Prague and Stockholm. The New York Rangers will be playing the Tampa Lightening in Prague while Ottawa Senators will be playing the Pittsburgh Penguins in Stockholm. If anybody manages to get to either of those games please take plenty of pictures and kindly post a link to them in this thread. This Islander fan will be happy if the following 2 conditions are met: a) At least a .500 record and b) Rangers don't win the cup. Let's Go Islanders!!! EDIT: We had a bit of posting/views record in the Playoffs/Off-Season thread. Thanks to everyone that participated in that thread! Let's try to trump that this season!
