    All right! I figure it's time to start a hockey thread because I know that some of y'all (myself included) really love the game on ice.

    Let's go Blues!

    Nice to know that Vegas has their first professional sports team beyond the collegiate level. Although the Vegas Golden Knights sounds excessive, Knights brings a better vibe. Wouldn't be surprised if they end up pulling a Tampa Bay Devil Rays into a Tampa Bay Rays in the future.

    Drop the puck!

    I'm thinking of going to the Flyers/Sharks tilt in San Jose tonight. Since the Rams appear to be relevant now, the hockey season kind of crept up on me. I haven't been paying attention...

    The first hockey game I ever attended was the Bruins vs. the Oakland Seals in Oakland. We sat like 8-9 rows behind the Boston net. Bobby Orr stood out to me even as little kid seeing his first game. He was the best guy out there and there wasn't a close second. I was a hockey fan from that point on. I still have a liking for the Bruins except I can't stand Marchand and Jack Edwards drives me nuts. I can't listen to that guy...

    Good luck this season! (y)

    That's crazy the first game I ever seen live was the Bruins vs the California Golden Seals!! Bobby Orr was gone by then. I agree on Edwards, Marchand is growing on me though lol

    Damn, you guys make me feel young. I was watching The Blues in the 90's. I was a Blues fan before I was even a Cardinals or Rams fan. I remember guys like McInnis, Pronger, Hull, Oates, Demitra, Tkachuk, Weight, etc. It was a lot of fun seeing them go to the playoffs on a consistent basis, but we didn't win it all.

    Also, freak that talented rat, Marchand. I don't care how many goals he scores; he's still a rat.

    I used to love going to Seals games as a kid! They weren't very good most of the time but I loved watching the games!
    Marchand needs to cool it with the BS dirty play. He's like a serial slew-footer. One of the dirtiest moves in the game. I hate that move...
    My only suspension ever as a player came after a guy slew-footed me, TWICE, in the same game. At least I hit him head-on...KOed him but at least it was a clean hit! :sneaky::yess:
