NHL PRE-SEASON

Saturday, October 1, 2005
 
It's the final weekend of warm-ups - next Saturday we get going for real and the picks will count!  Hopefully uLAr will take this as an opportunity to tune up for the regular season rather than sit out!  Are you ready?  Find out if we are!

uLAr here.  Now, now Puckin', no need to go there.  But take notice that only a sit-out will enable you to de-throne me as champion come Regular Season !
But for now, a little bit of a warmup.

UPDATE @ 22:00 - uLAr appears to be missing in action as Puckin' so far has swept the picks...even without uLAr picking the combined record is greater than .500!!  Too bad it's only pre-season...

Well this is almost more like it, but still fairly quiet for a Saturday, with 9 games on the pre-season tap - 4 of them will be played at neutral sites - BOS-NYI will play in Manchester, OTT-PIT in Wilkes-Barre, NSH-STL in Kansas City, and COL-LA in Vegas (hence the "vs" rather than the "@" in some of the matchups)!  Even though it's only pre-season, last week was interesting to say the least!

So far, despite what the critics say, scoring is up with the new rules and fans love the shootout!  Fans have an opportunity to catch another glimpse of Mario, Sidney & company, so let's hope fans pack the Wachovia Center this time (less than 4,500 fans on Wednesday night is simply pathetic if you ask me!).  Some big rivalries are playing tonight as well with Toronto hooking up with Montreal and Florida meeting the Stanley Cup Champs of '04 in Tampa.

Now time to see if uLAr & Puckin can improve upon a .500 record from Week 1.  It's all about bragging rights baby!!

A quiet Saturday to kick off the pre-season picks (which actually kicked off Friday night).  With most of the teams loaded with rookies, this will pose a bit of a challenge, but nothing uLAr & Puckin' can't handle!!
