To be fair, it's a matter of perspective. You and I arguing the decision of a professional athlete isn't going to change anything. It's just my opinion and neither of us will lose sleep over it.
Any one have a team they are looking at to break out this season? I'm thinking the Lightning and Thrashers in the east and the Preds in the 'west'.
I agree with you about the preds. It seems like every season we underestimate then and then they come out making us looking like idiots.
Oh, here's a good question, what do you think will happen in Phoenix? I'm pretty sure they'll spend this season here but I if they do move and the NHL wants to keep them in the US and Portland, Seattle, and Milwaukee were the top US contenders I heard.
I hope it is milwaukee though, and in realigning the divisions they send Colorado to the Pacific and St. Louis in the Northwest (probably illogical considering the rivals the Blues have in their division now).
