I'm really not sure how many hockey fans we have around but I figured I would make a thread just in case. It's still pretty early on in the season.

So, who's your favorite team? Which players do you love? and which players do you love to hate?

I'm a Calgary Flames fan (my hometown... no other reason really) and I'm a fan of Canadian teams (except for Toronto) when Calgary isn't playing. I'm pretty happy with how well they're doing so far this year. 3rd in the western conference right now and 5th overall in the league. Can't complain about that.

So what about everyone else?

Boston has got a pretty good team. I think they're third in the East right now. Pretty solid all the way through. If they stay healthy they should go far this year.

Montreal is a one line team unfortunately. I really like them but when your top line is the only one scoring it becomes tough to win games. Hopefully they can figure something out to get more scoring but I'm not holding my breath. They'll probably not make the playoffs with the way they've been playing.

Yay, I found the thread! Was wondering why there wasn't one, now I know.

Anywho, as geeogree as heard me say many times before, I am a Pittsburgh fan. Love the Pens, especially Malkin, Orpik, Fleury, and Crosby.

I hate, HATE the Detriot Red Wings and the Anaheim Ducks. And Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals. Great player, but I just hate him. Same with the Red Wings really. The Ducks... well... let's face it, they started off as a team created by Disney because of a movie. They've been good in the past but especially this season they are just pathetic.

I'm also a fan of the Los Angeles Kings (gotta root for the home team), and I have to say that I am insanely impressed at how well they are doing this season. The shameless Pens fan in me credits adding Scuderi to the team, as he's another fav player of mine, but I know that it is really a group effort. Also really impressed with Simmonds (#17) and Doughty as well as Jonathan Quick, the goalie. So very talented for being so young, makes me feel inadequate.

Third favorite team is the San Jose Sharks. Another really good team, and my boyfriends number one favorite. Love Nabby and Heatley, especially Nabby. Amazing goalie. Just wish they wouldn't choke in the playoffs (damn you Thorton).

Another set of really good teams that I've enjoyed watching play this season have been the Coyotes and the Sabres. Both were doing so bad last season and the turnaround has been really cool to watch.

Wow.... that pretty much sounds like the list of teams I cheer for. Except switch LA for Calgary and put Calgary as #1. But mostly just cause I'm born and raised here.

And all the hate I feel too. Ovechkin just bugs me.

The season has started? How are the Avalanche doing? I don't pay much attention to sports. Sports kinda died a bit back, it was red hot in the 90's for my teams the Avs won the cup and the broncos also won super bowl. But now that all the good players are gone I find it rather pointless watching

Favorite teams are Avalanche and Flames, don't know why I like Flames but I always liked their logo a lot even though I don't know anything about them

Favorite players of all time are probably Wayne Gretzky, Patrick Roy (Awesome goalie the best of the best, wiki says "In 2004, Roy was selected as the greatest goaltender in NHL history by a panel of 41 writers, coupled with a simultaneous fan poll."), Peter Forsberg, and Joe Sakic.

What is funny though is I think all of them are Canadian Goes to show the best hockey players are originate from Canada

Well, he might have been the greatest back in 2004.... but Brodeur has taken over that title. And rightfully so. He passed Roy in wins, probably has won a similar number of trophies and championships.... and is the league leader in shutouts which many hockey analysts say will never be broken...

so I guess he's 2nd now

Avalance are doing quite well considering they have nearly 0 name recognition on their team. Sakic retired because he mangled his hand in a snow blower sometime last season. Ended his career. He was good though. And Forsberg still plays but he plays in Europe because he's too slow for the current NHL. Too many knee problems.

Not all the best players are from Canada. But many of them are. I don't like to admit it but Ovechkin is top 2 in the world right now (right alongside Crosby).

Was looking at the standings today... Avalanche are doing ok, number 6 in the west. Calgary is actually in the number 8 spot.

And the season starts in October, Jigsaw.

Anyone watching the Olympic games? I'm waiting to see Canada vs USA.

The women's hockey has been interesting. Really surprised at how US trounced Russia... 13-0... wow.

Yeah, Calgary is doing pretty bad considering the team they have. They started out really strong and fell off in January pretty bad. The fact that we're in 8th is a pleasant surprise.

Yeah I've been watching the games. The hockey has been pretty interesting. Russian men lost their most recent game which was a surprise. Canada barely got passed Switzerland.

And yeah, Canada vs the US will be fun. As long as Canada doesn't play like a bunch of sissies like last game.

Switzerland gave them problems? The US skated circles around them, I mean, they have Hiller as the goalie for crying out loud. Maybe they practiced before playing Canada?

And don't feel too bad about Calgary... I mean, look at how bad Edmonton is doing. Last in the league is pretty damn bad. And I think Toronto is second worst.

Well, it wasn't that they had problems.... Hiller just stood on his head that game. And they got a couple lucky goals to keep the game tight. If Canada would stop playing fancy hockey and get down and dirty and beat up on other teams we would dominate. We're quite possibly the biggest team in the tournament. I think the average player is 6'2" and 220lbs. Why we aren't using our size to our advantage is beyond me.

That's the thing about the Olympic teams. Any team can beat any other team if they get lucky. Look at Slovakia vs. Russia. 2-1 for Slovakia when Russia is supposed to be the power house of this tournament.

Well, Canada does have Thorton, and he's a really big guy.

But yeah, why do the good games have to happen when I am working? I missed the US v Canada game last night, though I must say I am pleased about the 5-3 victory.

Is Babcock ever going to let Fluery play? Why put him on the team if you aren't going to play him?

There were at least 2 goals that were a joke in my opinion. But I'm not surprised the refs let them go. It's unfortunate but this is how Canada won the Gold in 2002 so I don't really care if we have to play an extra game. It might do us some good. We might actually start playing like we want to win. We've got the most skilled team in the tournament but we are playing like we can just beat anyone without any real effort.

And at this point I think it should be Luongo. Personally. I like Fleury but when you compare him to Brodeur and Luongo he doesn't compare yet. I don't blame Babcock for not playing him yet.

But why not pull Brodeur when he is playing bad?

All of the teams going in this round are pretty skilled, so I don't think it will be an easy time for anyone.

I don't know.... ask Babcock

And yeah, all the teams are pretty skilled... but Canada I think is the deepest team in the tournament. They -should- be doing better than they are. I just hope we get a medal. I don't care if we don't win gold. I just want a medal. We're too good to not at least get a medal.

We play russia in just over an hour though... that'll be the real test of whether Canada deserves a medal or not. Hopefully Crosby and Iginla will be on the same line. When they are together Iginla has 5 goals... when they're not together... he has 0.

I feel the same. I kinda want the US, Canada, and Russia to get the medals... in that order (sorry geeo, gotta go with the home team). Is it sad that there is a small part of me that actually wants Russia to not get anything just because of Ovechkin?

Well, Russia ain't gettin anything now!!!!!

Canada owns Russia 7-3. We skated circles around that team. Totally surprised... but happy about it. Now Canada has a good shot at a medal. Even if it's bronze we've still got a shot!

True... poor Malkin and Nabby. Oh well.

So the US beat the Swiss... again. Next they play Finland. Who does Canada play?

Finland should be a good match. They've got a pretty good team. With Kipper in net they could steal a win. Not likely... but I can hope

Canada plays the winner of Sweden and Slovakia. I hope for Slovakia just because they'll be a breeze compared to Sweden. Sweden won gold in 2006 and they have barely been mentioned but they have a solid team again. So most likely it'll be Canada vs Sweden.

Well, it's second period and no score in that game so far. Lot of penalties on the Swedish side I noticed though.
