Can wait for the new season!
LA Kings fan since gretzky and nhl94 on sega.
gave up on it for a while and got back into it about 5 years ago. started following my Kings again, despite being dismally depressing...then I noticed all the young talent being stacked and flashes of brilliance every now again. knew they had it...just missing something. seeing how strong they finished 3 years ago, i called it at the beginning of the next season...they were going to win it all. course it seemed like they weren't even going to make it to the playoffs half way through the season until they hired Sutter.
what a glorious second half, record breaking nearly flawless playoffs and nail biting finals.
it was pretty glorious, i was rootin for em
when teams are in the rebuilding stage, thats the worst man, seeing a couple years of suck is no fun.
early 2000's i gave up...after one of the lockouts. for almost 3 years i thought it was going to be much of the same ol Kings...mediocre season after season from 'rebuilding' since gretzy and luc robitaille. it was great watching them actually get better, showing promise and eventually winning it all.
I'm somewhat seeing the same from the Wild now. they're still missing something...like a Jeff Carter to make things happen. Parise can't do it all.
fuck the hawks.
Hockey is the only sport I can sit down, watch, and enjoy myself.
Excluding of course, real sports, like boxing, wrestling, muay thai, etc.
I was supposed to go to the islanders/devils game tomorrow at the barclays center in BK but my coworker took too long to let me know if he could make it. Some1 else bought the tickets. I'm still upset. Cant wait for the isles to make the move in 2015. Hopefully I see more minority fans than I saw in long island.
That's basically all my teams except for the ny giants lol
now that there is a bunch of legit minority players in the nhl i see it pickin up popularity amongst those who traditionally dont watch hockey.
and well shit, im a flames fan, and they havent been any good since the last lockout. Just now they decide to go back into rebuilding stages.... so we had 8yrs of suck and now can expect 2-3 more lol.... hopefully we pull off a miracle this season lol. But im really not seeing them being that great this year lol.
Kopitar is the shizzle and yes, fuck the hawks!
Busta, u ever seen the hockey movie - Goon?
I don't fuck with hockey but I really enjoy movies about it.

I did not see it, but surprisingly enough its based off a true story about a guy named Doug Smith.
i think stifler is funny so ill probably check it out
either somethings wrong with your internets or you like to rep and de-rep..... thats like 3 times in the last week it says you repped me, then wheni look it has nothing...
i live off your reps dude, dont do this to me.
Lol I don't do that intentionally. I'm also usually on my phone so that might have something to do with it.

Busta needs his fix, maaan. Give him his rep, yo! lol
Hockey is meh for me.
This is a shot from a local game this past week. Game was postponed due to fog in the arena, lol.
yeah where i grew up in the country was by a lake and there was lots of bayous, so it was a humid area(humid as alberta can get anyways) and i dont even know if thats important but our town arena would fog up like this, good times
Ah, yes, the memories of trying to figure out what a hockey game looked like, lol
For a few years I was going to a hockey game once or twice a week. My boss got free tickets all the time and didn't want to go...so he gave them to me.
It's aight, but I still prefer basketball.
nothing beats basketball.
Soccer beats all.
....can't live with em, can't live without em.....
