    It's that time of year again, boys!

    With the draft and free agency behind us and training camps in full swing, focus shifts to preseason games.


    It's almost October ...

    Flames finally have some salary cap space for once. Maybe they'll make the big move this year.

    Glad to see the Jets back too.

    I'm thinking it's almost time to upgrade my ink:

    "2011-12" Will look great on Lord Stanley underneath "1990-91", "1991-92", and "2008-09" :up:

    god damn it Bumpus. I was going to beat you to it this year. I almost started it 2 days ago when the Leafs played but I figured Bumpus wouldn't give a **** about preseason hockey.

    ****.

    Maybe next year. Just a few weeks until the quest for lord Stanley's Cup begins!!!

    Your best bet is to look at the Penguins preseason schedule, and then make this thread a few days before. :idk:

    This is what I'm looking forward to this winter because the Fins aren't giving me anything to hope for.

    After Fleury kicks a flukey seeing-eye goal in to make it 2-1, he comes back with a sick glove save!

    Leafs shutout the Habs. Good stuff. Got the Senators tomorrow night and then off for a week. Good chance for us to get healthy.

    As one season ends, another begins. Predators are 1-0, to start wooo. Good to see the most under appreciated sport back, should be another exciting season.

    I watched this game tonight. Rinne is the most underrated goalie on the NHL imo.

    Unrelated, but for someone who lives in New York you like teams that are way out of your area. Any reason how you started to follow those teams?

    I agree, I fear though he might not be a Pred soon enough. We have a solid backup n drafted a goalie in the first round. Rinne will get payed but we might not be able to with us focusing on signing Weber n Suter. But yea he is an aggressive and very soild goalie. Very underrated even after last season.

    My stories about how I became the oddest fan is long but ill make it brief.

    Baseball and Hockey I starting getting into when I was 7 in 98, Being new to the sport I didn't want to join the bandwagon n be a yankee/mets fan or Rangers/Islanders although I do consider those teams to be my second fav besides the Islanders. So With the new expansion teams D Backs n Preds I started to root for them. I was new to really paying attention to sports, and they were new...match made in heaven.

    Basketball - Id like to credit the game nba jam for this one. While eating at a place called ground round, I decided at the end to play the arcade game nba jam like I always did. I never won, until I picked some team with a cowboy hat n some straw lol. I won and soon became a mavs fan, thank god. But I can also say I'm a huge Knicks guy, I rarely miss there games on TV.

    Football - My dad a jets fan, and me being in NY how did I become a Dolphins fan. My mom who loved Dan Marino, n me being more of a mama's boy ill say led me to becoming a Phin Fan. Marino wore on me n the clashes of me n my father come gameday resulted. Oddly my next favs are Panthers, n Cardinals. Yea odd..... lol

    That was as brief as I could put it haha.
