As lousy as the Flames are, the Habs will most likely find a way to lose to them on their western road swing. I've seen it too many times.... Saying that, the Flames draft pick last year was the first time they were in the top 5.

If the Oil wanted to sell high on Yakupov they should have moved him before now.

They do right now - Florida has been awful. But will they support it once the inevitable down turn happens and they are a lotto pick for a number a years?

Tampa is definitely on the up swing of their cycle that is tolerated by their apathetic base. Still, I wonder if this team will be around in 10 years.

If you have to tell everyone you're the hockey Mecca - chances are you're not. Also, this isn't something you can decide - leave that to the gods.

Thanks, I've also noticed that no one uses wooden sticks anymore, sticks constantly break, everyone has rocket of a shot and goalies look like they more lacrossish - but I wont sweat those 'little' things

I like the fact that the twine on the nets seems to be more loose than in years past. A puck has a better chance of staying in the net after a goal instead of bouncing out faster than the shot taken to score. Also, this ice scrapping between the 3rd and overtime - talk about a fan adrenaline killer. They should have omitted the scrapping for the shoot-outs but instead they doubled the time to do it and guaranteed it in a tie game. Terrible idea - ask fans to sit on their thumbs for 10 minutes waiting for overtime. (too easy to pile on the habs this morning)

Is this the hockey mecca where Ekblad dreamed of playing? A potential NHL star in relative obscurity in a terrible US market?
