    do you hate the Wild because the Suter is on the team or just in general

    Broke a record for penalty minutes in one playoff game. The teams are so close together and play each other all the time. This was bound to get nasty.

    just because of Suter's comments generally. Other than that, no particular reason. I understand wanting to go to a serious contender (as if they really are) but the way he left was dirty. I understand Erat's reasoning, and have no lost respect for him.

    I had to go look up which player (Suter) went to the Wild. I have no idea what he said so can't judge him.

    Well, looking up the details, I was a bit mistaken, as it wasn't his direct, published comments, that were the story.. He misled the fanbase and the front office in telling them that he wanted to stay in Nashville, and even went through with some phony negotiations, knowing full well that he wanted to go to the highest bidder (Nashville not included) so it's basically a slap to the fanbase.

    But he's in the playoffs, and the Preds aren't. So I'm personally not that bitter about it.. but gotta root against him anyway, because you don't want to encourage the behavior. Everybody's all butthurt about the realignment, but I'm happy about it. Don't really care about the redwings rivalry. Wild coming in will be big for the next few years for sure.

    Ducks' logo is indeed crap. That webbed foot D simply doesn't work.

    Wish they'd do something like this:

    Like DW watches hockey, next he'll start a thread on the latest badminton match.

    Things are shaping up pretty well for me. Wild on their last leg, Canucks are done. Blues still in it.

    Was Jeff Fisher or Barry Trotz coaching Montreal last night? Seemed like.. go up 2 goals and sit on the lead and wait for the other team to do something.. sounds familiar.
