I wonder if opening across the sea will fuck these teams up the way opening in Japan screwed the Yankees.

And, I can't wait 'cause the Penguins will probably finish top four in the conference this year. Possibly win the division.

Atlantic or the Northwest will be the most closely-contested.

A lot depends on the Rangers' spending spree working out and the Devils continuing to keep plugging along with Brodeur a year older, no Gomez, and yet another new coach.

TSN's new frontpage preview graphic speaks volumes.

"ATLANTIC: Season Three of the Crosby Show"

Atlantic will be tight, but NYR will come out on top, and I wouldn't pencil in stupid Cindy for another Hart/Art Ross.

Why? He was clearly the best player in the league in 06-07. Now he has last year's Calder Trophy winner with a year more experience, Staal, and a lot of other good young players.

If nothing else the Art Ross is his for a couple years.

NYR and Pittsburgh will be the cream of the crop this year.

As a Ranger fan, it's both exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. But I'm looking forward to seeing Pittsburgh this season.

However, I'm already sick of Cindy Crosby. lol
Let's see what OUR Staal can do.

I think there's a destinct possibility that 4 of the 5 teams in the Atlantic make the playoffs

The best part about Jordan Staal was when he reported to camp last year he was 17.

I think the horizontal lower stripes look dumb with the sweeping hem, especially in the back, that's why most teams abandoned them.

Good ol Lou keeping the tried and true jersey. Some of the new ones look like practice jerseys, poor San Jose.

Man, NOT a fan of the Oilers jersey. They look more like the old Isles jersey, why'd they get rid of the shoulder colors?

I can"t wait for the season to start! Got 5 games at the garden and feel lucky to have gotten those from My buddie with the season tickets.

I agree Pitt will be tough but the Rangers have almost a 5th dimension to them this year given the veterans like Shanny Jagr, Gomez and Drury, Young guys like Callahan and such, agitators like Avery, Top notch Goaltening from Lundqvuist and so on.

I am sure every team in the NHL has their eyes on the Rangers. They have never looked this good in the past 10 years.

Last of all Renney knows how to get it done.

Can't wait to see that first puck dropped. It's gonna be a great season for us ranger fans I think.:D

wtf, I hope those aren't the jerseys, the official release is the 16th I think, but they aren't that bad I guess if those are them. Not as bad as the fucking sharks jerseys, ewww
