The NHL Season Begins Anew!

For the first time ever in my years as a Devils fan, I know that that this year they are going to suck. I will still watch though I won't use "there's a Devils game on tonight" as a reason to not attend a social function.

Help me out here, NoMich, I can't tell if this is a glove save or a pad or a stick save.

The Yahoo! league ended at the end of the regular season.

Btw, congrats to tron7 and owlhouse for finishing with a 135-115 record against the spread. tron7 wins via tie breakers. Team "Shouldabeen" (SpoFi username unknown) wins the Costanza for having the worst record, 105-145, of everyone who made picks every week. No Danny No! (rcade) placed 11th, going 123-127.

If somebody sets it up I'm in for a straight up pick-em or confidence points pool for the playoffs.

Valiant effort though, Scotty.

Only three people above .500 after week three. Is the NFL that unpredictable this year or are the odds makers just really good at what they do?

Not to brag or anything, but if not for the rain in Bristol, CT my nephew would have already made his ESPN debut today.

They do, but there is no longer an NHL contract that the KHL has to honor:

*Kovalchuk, 30, is permitted to play in the KHL (or some other league other than the NHL) because his contract with the Devils was officially voided after he signed his voluntary retirement papers today.

I think I speak for most Devils fans when I say that we pretty much knew last year that Clarkson was going to become a Leaf this summer. We just thought Burke would be the one to overpay.

Here's the scoop on Clarkson:
He falls down, like, a lot. Consequentially, he never draws a penalty.
He loves the wrap around. He scored five or six goals a couple of years ago using it but hasn't since, yet he still keeps trying. Just watch his body language when he is behind the net and you will learn to know when you are about to see a Clarkaround.
Merriam-Webster wanted to use his photo under the definition of streaky, but his agent wouldn't give them permission.

Okay, now I'm probably sounding like a scorned lover. I blame Louie Lams. Ryan Clowe? That much? Seriously? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!?!

Tom Sims, skate- and snowboard pioneer, died Sept. 12 of cardiac arrest. He was 61

I have to admit that even I didn't know how much Sims did for snowboarding. I'm surprised that I'm hearing of this first on Sportsfilter and not from any of my old school skater friends.


also, it may not seem impressive now, but Jeff Philips was awesome in his day.

"The At-Home Experience,"

I love live hockey, especially playoff hockey. Prices are the problem. Five years ago I could have afforded to go to ten regular season games and a couple of playoff games in Nashville but not anymore. Now I just save my money for really good seats to one regular season and one playoff game. I will give Nashville credit though, getting in and out of the city and finding decent parking has never been a problem for me, at least for hockey.

I have never been to a live NFL game so I have nothing for comparison. I just imagine that huge field and needing binoculars to see all the action. I'm going to a charity auction this Saturday though and I here one of the items for bid is two tickets for Jets @ Titans, so maybe that will change. A coworker has already informed me that traffic is a pain for football games but tipped me off to mall outside of the city where you can park for free and take a bus downtown.
