Opening Night

I'm all aquiver! The new season of the new NHL starts tonight with all 30 teams in action. (OLN is showing the NY Rangers vs. the Philly Flyers, which might have been worth watching if Peter Forsberg wasn't hurt.)

My Avalanche, who some say have been drastically depleted by the new salary cap and free agency, are up against an Edmonton Oilers team that has added a couple of big names to the roster. My other "hometown team", the Boston Bruins, open the season, appropriately enough, against long time rivals the Montreal Canadiens, who are - astoundingly - celebrating their 100-year anniversary.

Yay hockey!
