I had this really long complicated post about the wings,
But I deleted it.

To Summarize New coach, lost alot of tallent and didn't play the young guys enough.

Go hurricanes, gotta root for the new guys this year.

Thanks Detroit for 3 cups in my lifetime! At least one of our teams can be a winner. Boo to the Lions boo to the Tigers.

We need to just can all of the major league baseball players and hire all new ones. After watching those lamers play this year I think I should be on the plate again. Well here is to another year of great hockey!

Lots of Wings fans here too huh? Atleast they aren't all bragging about having Joseph. Perhaps you all realize there is nothing to brag about?? No im not sour that he didn't sign with Toronto, i have never been a fan of him. Without Bowman, Hasek and potentially Yzerman gone, i would have to say the wind isn't in the sails for the Wings this year. Not to mention many other teams have really stocked up this year.

I think the Wings fans this year will find out how luck they were to have Scotty. Most people do not give enough credit to a coach. Here are a couple of examples. Lakers & Bulls before Jackson. North Carolina after Smith. Players are the ones that do the job but the coach keeps those egos in check and makes sure the job is done. The players need to buy into the system that the coch has or its all over. With the talent the Wings have a new caoch does not have a chance. The playes will try to run the team and they will most likely fail unless they manage to just over power the other ream or Cujo plays like a man possessed.

lol We all know Detroit is Hockeytown, They gave us a great season last year, and 3 cups. I'd love to see them do it again, but I just don;t think this is the year for it. However they will still be a strong contender and SHOULD make it past the 1st round of the play offs.

The only reason Toronto gets so much press is because they are a winning team. Other then last year, Edmonton hasn't got past the 1st round in how long? Ottawa same thing. Montreal hadn't even made the playoffs. Vancouver had some good teams, but didn't have goaltending and therefore lacked the success. Calgary, same thing. The fact of the matter is, Toronto puts out a winning team and therefore sells out every game. The media in Canada uses the Leafs 'our' team in Canada because of there success and fan base. If Vancouver or even Calgary put out a winning team year after year, you would hear all about them. Remember when Calgary won the cup in the 80's. You didnt hear anything about the Leafs. Even though i am a die hard Leaf fan, i will agree with you that the fans are a bit too much.. They never want to give credit to any other team or player unless he wears the blue and white. Well one of my fav players is Comrie, so i guess i'll get some flack over that by Leaf fans eventually..

I'll always root for the wings, but like inked says thats all that we ever hear about here. I was rather surprised to see the huricanes do as well as they did in the play offs last year. They are going to be a cup contender very soon, maybe even this year. they are a young team with alot of talent, they just don;t play my kinda hockey, they just need to work on the offense more. No one wants to see a 1-0 game...no thrill to it lol just my 2 cents

Carolina has a very talented team. And with Kevin Weeks and Arturs Irbe between the pipes they are definatly a contender. I wouldn't be suprised to see them go far again this season. But like you say, 1-0 games are very boring. I'm more of a 3-1 kind of guy myself with lots of hitting I think all big time hockey city's are like this though, they only want to talk about their team. lets give some credit to the small market clubs that suprise. Look at Atlanta last year. Kovalchuk and Heatley are incredible and Hnickla (sp?) is a very skilled goalie.

May a plague of locusts bury themselves deep in your crotch..

The nickname comes from "Les habitants", the first settlers of the Quebec area.

The nickname "champs" comes from 24 CUP WINS!!!!

lets not live in the past Honestly though, the Habs had a hell of a season last year considering. Koivu is a cinderella story and i hope he stays healthy. Theodore is unbelievable. Something about the Quebec league, it seems to produce some amazing goalies. Theodore, Roy and Brodeur to name three.
