It’s a happy time and a sad time. Hockey season has started. That means I get to watch hockey :). It also means that my Red Wings no longer ‘possess’ the Cup. I subscribe to the school of wisdom that you only have the cup during the off season, and once it starts up it goes back onto that mythical Pedestal where nobody owns it.
I feel pretty good about our chances to repeat. Another solid team, no weaknesses and a healthy supply of studs waiting to get onto the big team. All the stars from last year + the free agent stud Hossa added into the mix. We always have a few injury problems, and it shouldn’t be too big a problem. On the other hand we have have good solid teams for the last 15 years or so, and we have failed more often then not.
The big question is will Crosby and the other young-uns on the Pens step up even another level this year. If he and they do that team will be crazy, but for one more year I gotta put my (Biased) money on the Wings.
Lets go Red Wings
