Complete hockey novice here. Going to start watching the NHL this season.
Any top teams/ good teams you guys can recommend that I watch?
Obviously I'll watch the Red Wings and Penguins.
My plan was to look at last years division standings and just watch the top teams per division. I'm going to record all the games to watch at my convenience.
^Those are two good teams to watch. I also recommend watching the Capitals just for Ovechkin. Although, really you can't go wrong with watching any game .
Montreal Canadiens (My team, bias)
Washington Capitals (This team is great to watch)
Carolina Hurricanes (Another high offense team)
San Jose Sharks
Tampa Bay Lightning (They'll suck, but at least they'll be fun to watch with all of their offense)
Chicago Blackhawks (Johnathan Toews and Patrick Kane = awesome)
Anaheim Ducks (Rough team, more defensive, but still a good team. One of the better defensive squads in the NHL)
Cool. Thanks for the recommendations. I'll set my DVR to record those teams games. The reason I don't want to try and watch every game is because I get bored when watching teams that are shit. I'll stick with the good teams/ exciting teams until I get more into the sport. Thanks again!
OMG, OMG, OMG, it's finally here. It starts tomorrow (well sort of). The 2008-2009 NHL Season will officially have started. I wish I had a way to watch the games though. Damn, I need CBC. Anyways, in less than a week hockey season will be in full swing. I'm so excited .
So it looks like this thread hasn't gotten much attention, the Western Conference has been really interesting this year and I'm hoping my team the Ducks make it to the playoffs.
Ovechkin reaches goal 50 once again, Steve Mason looks to be a savior for the Blue Jackets and Martin Brodeur breaks Patrick Roy's record...Very interesting season!
My Habs suck.
Worst thing is, I'm unable to explain it.
Oh, and congrats to Marty the Overrated, enjoy your divorce fee, you scum.
He originally married, then years later got a divorce because he was banging his wife's sister (Who he now married, last summer I believe). He's scum.
Not to mention he's probably the most overrated goaltender in NHL history. Not saying he's bad, in fact he is great, a HOF player, but to be categorized as the "best ever" is a joke.
Playoffs start this week!

Fuck Christmas, this is the most wonderful time of the year. I love the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Anyways, I'm disappointed the Predators didn't make the playoffs, but what can I do. Even though the Caps lost today, I'm pulling for a Caps/Wings final. I wouldn't care who won and it would be exciting.
No chance the Caps get past the second round, let alone get to the finals, with The Odor as the #1 goaltender.
He was bad on all four Rangers goals today. Just... horrible.
Hey everyone! Hockey season is starting up again soon and I honestly can't wait.
