Hey all, sorry, I've been away for a while, but for a good reason. My first child was born last Sunday (9/21)! I'm back though, and ready to spread the game of hockey to the masses! So, let's hear it...Who's up for a new HPT TD Tournament?
bcbenzel 09/30/08
Hey, just in case you were wondering about the website, it will be down for the next few weeks. HPT version 2.0 will be launching around October 1, just in time for hockey season.
Hey all...We're still waiting for as many as possible for a new TD tournament! Go to the message boards to sign up!

Congratulations to Baun-ded on winning the first TD Tournament!

I'll be trying to set up the next tournament within the next few weeks, so keep checking in!

Despite the fact that there was no injury and that Osgood may have instigated it and exaggerated after the fact, you simply can't use your stick in that way, especially not after the game has ended. A fine should definitely be in order and if the NHL wants to maintain any level of consistency, he'll get at least a game suspension in my opinion.
bcbenzel 05/11/08
You think they're gonna suspend Ribiero? I'm a big Wings fan but I hope they don't. Fine em both 10k and play on.
mhwings 05/11/08
Well I'm ready to go and looking forward to the Tourney. Good subjects.
My 1st argument is up and my TD is up...the only problem, my opponent doesn't seem to be yet. WAKE UP BOSTON!
I sent a message to all the participants of the TD tournament...For those who didn't get in...Don't worry, we'll have plenty more!
bcbenzel 05/10/08
Hey...I noticed Otherone is a member here...That would be a laugh to get him on a TD.
Are we going to get this tourney going today?
Its tough to get a good NHL TD on Fannation these day...
The Flyers without Kimmo are done against the Pens.
Though I would love to see Detroit v. Philly in the finals, I agree with you Miguel
bcbenzel 05/09/08
DET vs. PIT in the finals. I think the Wings are a little deeper than the Stars, but the games will get tight going back to Dallas. The young talent in the series would be amazing.
Miguel#94 05/09/08

PENs vs. DAL
PENs in 6
I'm gonna go with a Flyers v. Red Wings finals. I like the way that the Flyers have been playing recently and I think that they'll give Pittsburgh all they can handle. In the end, I think the Flyers have what it takes to gut out the East.

I personally think that whoever wins the Detroit/Dallas series will win the Cup. Both teams have been playing fantastic hockey, but I think that the Wings will come out on top. They've got more experience than the Stars' first two opponents and a much more balanced attack as well. If the Stars keep on their game, they'll have a good shot at winning...But I think it's going to be Detroit that comes out on top.

I've had a really crappy run with my predictions this spring. 3-5 in Round 1. 1-3 in Round 2. So now I'm taking Detroit and Philly.

I wouldn't be too upset if Dallas advanced but I just do not like Pitt. They are the new Edmonton to me. And I never liked the brash young Gretzky Oilers. Pitt matches well too. Crosby/Gretzky, Malkin/Kurri, Stahl/Messier, Laraque/Semenko, etc. Just no Paul Coffey.

Anyway after beating the Wash and Mtl (both picks of mine) Philly had better keep their game up and knock off Pitt.

And if Brenden Morrow play like he has Detroit could be in trouble. But Detroit has lots of talent so should be better off than the San Jose Tin Men. Why is Thorton so highly rated? Guy's a bum. Zero sense of urgency.

The Avs/Det series wasn't even close.. the wings did a # on them...
After watching the Red Wings defile the Avs last nite, this Wild fan is probably one of the happiest people on earth! And a newborn Wings fan!
bcbenzel 05/02/08
1 Sharks fan till the playoffs start and they I can only hope the Penguins have what it takes to beat Detroit!
DIE7Z 05/01/08
Being as that my Rangers are going to be out of the playoff picture in under 24 hours, I don't really care who plays in the ECF as long as it's a good hard fought series. I'd always like to see my team go all the way, but I'd rather see a good hard nosed series. Thus I've stopped watching the Rangers this week lol.
nyr35 = PH 04/30/08
We don't prefer one over the other.... both can be beaten...only upside with Philli is the home ice adv...
1 Habs fan :) <---
Phifty 04/30/08
Welcome all! Glad you guys are here! Good to see some Pens fans showing their support.

Who would you guys rather play in the ECF? Philly or Montreal?
bcbenzel 04/30/08
1 Wild fan & 2 Pens fans
Good start...
Love the Wild jersey...
