    That and all of our other teams suck.

    Hey, the Nuggets and Broncos aren't THAT bad. But the Rockies are, for sure.
    I'm so glad the NHL is back. It does help that the Avs are usually a top-echelon team. But all that might change with the salary cap. I don't think any one team will be able to stockpile talent, like the Avs and other teams like NY and Detroit. Speaking of Detroit, I missed hating them this season. So that's another bonus.
    But I think that the NHL is going to have a very hard time winning back the caual fans. There needs to be some serious rule changes to open up the game. Thankfully, there are some changes being considered. And, all the teams need to cut ticket prices. By at least 25%, and it can be done, because all players' salaries are being cut by 24%, and the cap helps too. But the outrageous ticket prices can't be justified any more. I've only been able to go to 2 regualr season games in the 10 seasons the Avs have been here, and that's not fair to the real fans who just can't afford to go to games, like me.
    A new marketing strategy would also help a lot. They need to hire the people from the NBA or something like that. Make people notice the game and for God sakes, market the damn players. It's been a long time since I've seen an NHL ad that actually had one of the players. A few years ago, there were some very funny ones put out by Nike, and ESPN usually had some good ones around playoff time. But it will be a long haul for the NHL to gain the status it once had. And there's the chance that it may never recover at all. All I know is, I'm glad it's back, and I can't wait for training camp.

    And I remember now, at the top of my lungs in my arms, she dies, she dies.

    I didn't say it was a bad movie haha, as a matter of fact it's great even if I watch it now...I just don't get what happened to Lord...I mean emilio estevez. I thought he was the coach of the mighty ducks.
