The league is pandering to the European markets under the guise of "28% of our players are from Europe," when in reality, they just don't want another pro league across the big pond to compete with the NHL.

And although I like, nay, love the idea of the league opening up on a Friday night, with the Cup champs hosting the Cup runners-up, until the league does something to fix their stupid scheduling problems, this isn't always possible. If it's a year when the non-winners aren't going to travel to the champs' division, well it throws everything out of whack.

Inconvenient? Yes. Insurmountable? No. That's why I'm a proponent of the 84-game schedule movement.

Don't forget Canadian Airlines (Apart of Air Canada now)

I was thinking it was going to be either another oil type business Encana or whatever or possibly Canada's fastest growing company over the last decade WestJet. Either way we need a new arena with in 5 years.

After the company did the biggest bankrupcy at that date, nobody dare call the Astros stadium "Enron Field."

Canes sweep the Helsinki series. Now on to the Jackets and the Sharks in Stockholm.

Three minutes into the Blue Jackets season and they're down 1-0. Same old same old, nothing new there.

These neutral site swedish crowds are awful. There's no energy in the building. It feels like I'm watching a preseason NFL game.

Would you look at that, it's 2-2 in the blink of an eye. That was a wild turn of events.

Two goals in 15 seconds? How very un-hitchcockian.

The Sharks twentieth anniversary logo placement is weird. It's on the left sleeve wedged between the sleeve number and the stripe. It's barely noticeable. Just lose the dumb chest number!

Very scary moment during the Caps/Thrashers game. Thrashers goalie Ondrej Pavalec passes out on the ice two mintues into the game and remained motionless. I hope he is okay. It's moments like these where you fear the worst.

Ondrej Pavelec has been taken to the hospital, after spending several minutes motionless on the ice with his eyes closed. Medical staff from both teams had to lift him onto the gurney. Frightening.

Why wasn't the game called like when Fischer went down?

He has regained consciousness according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Absolutely scary moment there, I hope he's alright.

Why are you a division favorite when everyone is over 35?

He was prolly showing good vitals as he was being taken off the ice where as Fischers heart stopped completely and they had to revive him on the bench.

But thats just a guess.

Ondrej Pavelec is in stable condition. Up, awake, and in stable condition.

Seeing Pavelec unconscious was quite scary, as hardly anyone saw him before he collapsed. The play was on the other side of the rink, and Pavelec was laying between the circles, an odd place for the goalie to be. He wasn't touched.

It was refreshing to hear that he was awake and alert.

Kinda late to the prediction party, but I think the Penguins will be winning the Cup this year. I know it's kinda trendy, but they've got a lot of tools they need to make another Cup run

As for the Islanders, I think they'll be in the 10-12 range. Once Okposo's back they should be playing some good hockey, and as I said in Tank's thread I think they're a year away from becoming a solid playoff team
