    I couldn't give a crap about hockey after all the crap that happened last season. Or should I say no season. I'm done with it. They lost a lot of fans due to last years events. They will never regain what they had.

    Unless they had naked cheerleaders.

    After last (non) year - the NHL can go smoke a turd in hell for all I care. And I'm a long time fan.


    However, GO RIVERDOGS, (local minor league team)

    [disenting opinion]
    I'm glad the NHL is back, and I'm glad each team has the same amount of money to play with, it's the only way teams can compete with each other. I think the league will actually have some parity in it now, like the NFL does, where on any given sunday you never know who will win, sure there are favorites, but you don't have the haves and the have nots, you have well run organizations and poorly run organization, but all have the same money to spend, like it should be I think.

    I think Forsburg and Foote leaving for more money, after not playing this year is a bit of a bad move PR-wise for them, but money is money and that's why they play the game, if they can make more money elsewhere, then by all means go for it...heck Forsburg is making over $5-mil/year now, that's alot more than the Avs were offering, so you can't knock the guy for getting it while the get'ns good.

    I enjoy watching the game, but tickets, etc. are too rich for my blood. Avs tickets are mostly $75 each or more. Then figure parking, something to drink and eat and you're over $200 -per game!! Times 40 something home games!!! I can't afford that. DU tix have almost doubled in the last 10 years from $10 per seat to $25 for some. But that's still affordable for me. They're in a brand new arena and it's great hockey. Couldn't ask for much more to see them reach the NCAA finals the last two years.

    FYI, they lowered ticket prices 10% for single game and 20% for season tickets.

    Not a hater, not a fan.

    Just slowly turned off most major sports. Baseball is practically dead to me, so is the NBA. NFL warrants a few weekends a year tops (Wife's family has season tickets to Panthers, but I'm a Cowboy at heart (Staubach/Landry))...

    If it is going to be about big money anyway, I'll take NASCAR. Or the maybe the still semi-corrupt NCAA...

    it's about time all the nords departed. av fans have been building up a huge karma debt and now it's time to pay up. no more living off the backs of the long suffering nord fans who endured the worst team imaginable and the lindros nightmare to develop your "depth". if there is any justice you'll now become the clippers of the NHL.

    plus it is justice for forsberg to go back to philly who drafted him in the first place

    also, not a lot of sympathy for a team owned by the cable company, playing in the "pepsi" centre and sharing its name with a pos chevy truck abomination.

    I stopped paying attention to any of the sports years ago.

    I feel very little compassion for labor strikes by people who are paid loads of money to play a game for christ sakes, when teachers, cops, soldiers, paramedics and firefighters are making a measly $20-$40,000 a year.. I don't particulary care how hard it is on an athlete to make only $500,000 a year.... :rolleyes:

    I do like to go see the Badgers play when I'm in town on a game night and don't have too much studying to do, but that's the extent of it.
