      NHL & other Ice Hockey
      Jul 06, 2009 08:07:41 pm
      As I now live in Nottingham have been watching a few Nottingham Panthers games in the elite league, and getting to like Ice Hockey, also support Phoenix Coyotes in the NHL as well, does anyone else enjoy Ice Hockey either live or on ESPN! ;)

      Used to go to the Belfast Giants games at the Odyssey when I was younger but haven't been in years...Went quite regularly as well, don't know why I stopped going, suppose the novelty sort of wore off.  It was very enjoyable though and the Giants were quite good at the time...don't know how good they are now though.  Remember fighting with my bro to get a puck that flew into the crowd, stood on my hand the fat git did.  Quite partial to a jumbo hot dog as well when I was at it ;)

      Don't really follow the NHL or anything.  I like watching The Mighty Ducks at Christmas when its on though. :D

      Giants are still pretty good one of the top eight teams in the country!

      I enjoy it, im from Australia and now actually residing in the US and have been following the Anaheim (Mighty) Ducks for a few years now. Very exciting sport to watch, of course after Football though ;D
      Haven't checked up recently but the Coyotes were in a fair bit of financial trouble awhile ago, believe they were talking about relocation at one stage maybe? I might have to look up what happened  now ;D

      Coyotes won't be leaving anywhere for the time being as the league simply doesn't want to a sell a team to Jim Baseille (Blackberry guy) so he can move it to Hamilton,Canada.

      As Canadian I have to like hockey or face deportation :D

      Glory hunter! Don't really follow the NHL, or the English leagues, but I love the Finnish league.

      My team is Jokerit Helsinki. In the NHL, i'd go for Anaheim Ducks, but don't really follow the NHL as such.

      I like to see the Chicago Blackhawks do well.

      Can't call me a glory hunter - they're crap.

      I love Hockey..I support the New York Rangers. Great team, been pretty shitty the last few years but, hopefully can make a run to the Cup this year or at least win the East..As long as the beat the Devils and Flyers I'll be happy.

      I'm completely floored that they have a league in England. I never knew that. I thought it was a Football only country.  Thats awesome, Hockey is a great sport. Physically, its the "Toughest" sport in the world and is well worth watching and following.

      Go the Ducks! I'm in alot of trouble as all my girls family are San Jose natives :D

      There's also a league in Australia believe it or not! Very small though, people hardly know about it.

      I'm not a big follower of the game but thanks to Adam (adammac) I enjoy it, and for some strange reason my favourite team is Tampa Bay Lightning ;) The Maple Leafs come as a close second.

      Pronger is a great player. Coming to the end of a career but definitely a good addition to any team.  You gotta love a player w/ 600+ career points and 1400+ penalty minutes.  He scores goals and drops the gloves. Great captain. He reminds me of Mark Messier.

      Yeah, i was sad to see him go. One of my fav's through the last few years. Free up some salary room i guess, hoping we make another good charge into the playoffs again this season. Can get a Pronger ducks jersey half price now though :D

      I loved Pronger, would have liked to keep him.

      The Ducks were knocked out of the playoffs because they didn't have enough top 6 forwards, though, so Lupul for instance will be a good aquisition.

      Yeah, and that Kuvui or however you spell it will be good to. I'm excited to see how Bobby Ryan goes after his awesome breakout season last time round.

      Totally forgot about Koivu (::)). Quality player.

      Also, Bobby Ryan was on fire last season, showed why he was the second pick after Crosby!

      I quite like Detroit Redwings.
      Not because I glory hunt because to be quite honest, I know nothing about Ice Hockey.
      My support of the Wings comes from Scrubs, Dr Cox supports them ;)
