Everyone else gets their own damn thread, so the Winged Wheel sure as hell will too. It's going to be another great season I'm sure. Datsyuk gets an "A" this year, Aaron Downey, Matt Ellis, and Derek Meech all get spots too. The season opens against Anaheim this Wednesday at the Joe, let's hope it starts off right. Here's the schedule for Rocktober - Oct. 3 Anaheim 7:00 Oct. 6 at Chicago 8:30 Oct. 8 Edmonton 7:30 Oct. 10 Calgary 7:30 Oct. 12 Chicago 7:30 Oct. 14 at Los Angeles 8:00 Oct. 15 at Anaheim 10:00 Oct. 18 at San Jose 10:30 Oct. 20 at Phoenix 10:00 Oct. 24 Vancouver 7:30 Oct. 26 San Jose 7:30 Oct. 28 at Vancouver 10:00 Oct. 30 at Edmonton 9:00 I'm really excited about this season, as I am about every one. We've got the best defenseman in the NHL, 2 superstars up front in Datsyuk and Zetterberg, and a bunch of solid youngsters in guys like Filppula and Hudler. I think Hank will push 40 goals this year, and hopefully Pavs will put up close to 100 points. I'll leave this first post off with a nice cheesy line - For God so loved the Wings, he made us all bleed red.
