They've gone back to the thing they were doing in the last few pre-COVID seasons where they have a couple games overseas to start the season.  However, they do them while the rest of the league is finishing up the pre-season.  I'm assuming this is so the participating teams have enough time to get home and rest a bit before starting their seasons in earnest.

It all somehow came together, with the Sharks playing in the Europe games, and the resulting 11am Friday start; I feared I would have to get through the opener sober.  But because shiat happened in the apartment, I have to work from home today.  Goonjuice is ready.

I've ordered a tiny Stanley Cup banner to raise at Bub-Ball Arena.

Probably can't actually keep it hanging there because it'll interfere with the game, but still.

Found out they have a special Stanley Cup edition bubble table.  It's like $800+ more than what I paid for this.

Imagine having a Habs theme and having to put 24 of the little farkers in that bubble.

It would definitely block the view.  And then if you wanted retired numbers...

Is the NHL Network feed using virtual ads on the boards, too?  I'm watching on NBC Sports California and the virtual ads are distracting as shiat when they change.

I'm hoping my team will take a step forward this season, but the Atlantic is an absolutely brutal division right now.

The roads look good, I'm reserving judgment overall until I see the home version with the teal helmets.

Good news, Toronto has two goalies under 30 with something to prove.

Bad news, there's a reason they both have something to prove.

Anyway

The game is in Prague, I'm guessing the rink couldn't let them change the boards.

My first impression was that, at a distance, they look a lot like the Leafs. Until I saw them from the front a bit closer in. Then I agree. They look OK.

I do not like the computer-generated ads on the boards. And for some reason, the video is not smooth.

Anyway, go hockey. Welcome back.

That seems pretty common when they're beaming from Europe (or any other continent).

Just in time for new bottles of brandy and tequila to be opened, putting up some mancave artwork and hockey artifacts I acquired from a clearance sale of stuff, and comp LA Kings opener tickets for participating in a 5K last month organized by the team.

Walked 3.1 miles in an hour along the cool overcast beach (damn lucky planning -- it had been 100+ degree heat for days and freakishly hot desert storm winds the day before that), plus an extra mile to my parking space, for my goddamn tickets and medal/keychain thingy. I was just 200 yards behind former LA Kings player/radio color commentator Darryl Evans (had GWG in Miracle on Manchester that eliminated Edmonton in '82 playoffs) in pace, so not bad at all for this fat Farker.

/bit ... ominous? ironic? ... my bib number had 99 on it.

Ahh, ok. I was confused because the Devils' final preseason game is tomorrow and their season opener is next Thurs(Fri?). That makes way more sense.

BTW does Barefark avoid the occasional advertisement on Fark that tries to hijack the browser?

My PC's security denies them or closes the page at worst, but it's getting bad lately on Fark. Fortunately don't have the issue on phone and tablet.

/also hate Fark's new top scrolling ad that suddenly grows to half the screen size too on my devices

Yeah, but the game would be unplayable with all the little Habs guys laying on the ice after diving.

Get used to it because you're going to see those everywhere.

Those of us who watch UEFA Champions League soccer have seen those for a while and they're distracting as hell when you're seeing the main feed and the boards are showing an ad for Pepsi but then they switch to a close up view and the ads are for Playstation, for example. I think it's going to be worse for hockey since the boards are constantly there unlike soccer.
