_/Wtf is up with the schedule? The Ducks' first game is on the 12th

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.

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.


Bleacher Report has the Devils at #24 on the power rankings. Sadly, that's an improvement.

I've been seeing a lot of "Devils are playoff bubble team" in previews lately. I really don't buy it; I view them as somewhere in the mix of situations as Anaheim (team of the future) but last year's Ottawa (still a player or two off, circling and flirting around the playoff cut bunch).

I had considered Detroit the fringe playoff team but think Columbus might take that final spot -- or bump Pittsburgh into that wild card.

/West fringe playoff team I'm picking? Vancouver.

Oh shiat, I saw a notification on my phone about the Sharks game but thought it was preseason.

Also they don't tell anyone about it, which is nice

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


This is the worst, almost makes the mobile version unusable due to being a giant pain in the ass.

PluckYew: DaFuq is a Perd?


Like most things Hockey Fark related, it started as a typo of Preds, but there's also a TV character named "Perd" so it became a years-long running gag.

Thanks and while I do have a TV, I rarely watch broadcast TV shows.

I'll shut up now.

(shakes tiny fist)  I am legit more jealous of those beer prices than I am of... eh, every other team in the NHL's chances for this season bar the Yotes.  And I'm a Habs fan.

Prague is renowned for good beer at a very reasonable price.  Actually, the whole city has a reputation for delivering quality well above its price point if you're a tourist.

Well shiat. My 6 yo tells me he's a Sharks fan. He really kept his enthusiasm for opening a day quiet. I had no idea.

You can laugh at the Canadiens throughout the year, Maple Leafs in June, maybe Vegas too. And if the lottery numbers click to Buffalo ... well, Chicago and Arizona are going to be pissed from their race to be worst.
