I know yhat there a lot of football and NASCAR fans in the village. Are there any hockey fans? The Buffalo Sabres made it to the finals last year but fell a little short. This year we have a better team, so hopefully they can get the job done. Who are you rooting for?

Of course, I am an L.A. Kings fan, but we fell short of the play-offs this year. I think the lock out really hurt hockey. They don't televise as many games any more as they used to.

I'm not a Duck or Sharks fan.

i think versus has the contract to show all nhl games. some drama with espn or something. hubby told me about it but i forget what happened. i haven't followed hockey this year as life has been too crazy. dh is a diehard bruins fan. i prefer minor league hockey, but i don't get to those games very often either.

I'm a sinner. I am both a Red Wings fan and an (gasp!) Avs fan!

I have to be careful whenever I watch hockey so I don't get struck by lightening. (No pun intended!)

Hehe... I'm an Oilers fan! I have NO idea what happened to them last year. Think we need new coaches and management. To go from losing the Stanley cup in game 7 of the series(no shame there) to not even making the finals is an embarassment to the franchise and the owners should get over highering Oilers Alumni and get some REAL management and coaching happening!

Cheering for the Islands as that's where our Ryan Smyth is :)

I miss Hockey!!!!! I've never been much of a "watch on TV" sports kind of fan but oh if I couldn't get to an Islander game I'd watch it. I don't know anyone from where I grew up that hasn't seen at least one Islander/Ranger game in person (even if they hated hockey) and have stories to tell. Moving here to Kentucky put a damper on that. There's no hockey team here and we weren't able to get the games on TV when we first moved. DH and I have both sort of drifted from it but it always seems to catch our attention when somebody mentions it. ....Like I think someone mentioned that the Islanders actually made it to the playoffs this year (but as the last team). Makes me sad...they use to be awesome. I always kinda liked the Red Wings too. (I kept that kinda quiet though....It was almost as bad as being a Ranger fan.)

Not looking too good for the Sabres, they really got their backs to the wall.
