I'm still SUPER nervous.

Do you think he ever gets tired of being so awesome?

What a douche. I can't think of a better comment about this. But seriously. Douche in high school, douche in adulthood.

After the Catwoman quote, I read the rest of this post in her voice. But I'm so excited for Helm to be back, but I'm at work and will not be able to see his debut. Sad, but pur only win came when I was at work too, so...

Let's all listen to Tubthumping (which is a word in my phone and I don't know why) in honor of his retirement.

@marti783 Maybe Holland was being smart after all, I bet his psychic hockey sense told him this was going to happen. Besides, their contract was insane and screwed the Wild over in like 5 years under the old contract anyway.

I know this isn't a happy comment, but, before the lockout, I do remember reading a rumor that Pav won't return after his contract is up. Don't ask me where, but I distinctly remember reading it. I think the reason was that he and his wife quietly divorced a few years ago and she took their daughter back to Russia and he doesn't see her very much since he's playing over here and misses her.
I don't think we'll see a C on Pav. It'll be Z, without a doubt.
I know that I shouldn't be, but I'm so excited there's going to be some season. I just woke up to read this news. I took the same ostrich approach as you did and just refused to talk about it, or any hockey because talking about it was too frustrating and frankly pointless
Unfortunately, sharks fan boyfriend will probably not be as enthused about this miniseason, and I'm going to have to listen to him complain every time I watch again, because I'm sharing an apartment with the enemy now.

As a self-proclaimed Russophile, you have no idea how excited I am. I HOPE Kozlov can get away and my old jersey will have relevance for a little while to all of these baby fans who only know 13 for Datsyuk and have no players in mind associated with #16.
Yes, I'm aware that I'm quite young but referred to people as babies lol.

Perfection. Moving. Emotional. Intimate.Yeah, those don't do it justice individually. You need a whole paragraph's worth of words like those to touch what this is, especially to John and coming from him.
I cried a little.
10:14, Vladdie takes his turn. How bittersweet is it that this may have been the last time he ever skated a lap, and it was with the cup hoisted over his head?
I miss Vladdie. And Russians like these. Ovechkin and Malkin don't even come close to how much heart The Russian Five had.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEaJywJwBx0 shitty quality but it has almost all of the laps with the cup.
Why do we let Bettman speak ever?
I so wish I could have either been here or in a bar with a group of friends for a game when the Wings win the cup instead of at work or being asleep. In 98 I made a giant Stanley Cup and stayed up to watch it and when we won, my dad took me on Gratiot to the medians to party with everyone driving back up from the Joe and coming out of their houses. A drunk man poured beer into my aluminum foil cup and drank it. Best memory of my life.
I no longer have any idea where we're supposed to be, friggin window decided to close.
Crazy relation? My old room mate's dad was one of those police on horseback outside of the Joe.
