Teams are in camp Games start on 13th of January
56 game schedule with some very different divisions.
One for most of us, being the North ( Canada only )
should be interesting, fast and furious.


Shorten schedule will make games count even more.
Tight timeline, alot more back to backs should be fun.
Whats thought of what NHL is doing?
who's your team?

We know the best team is most loved on this forum
Go Habs Go. :)

I like the new format. First two rounds of the playoffs look to be inside the division so two Canadian teams would make it to the third round if I read it correctly. Pending they do not blow a game 7, 3 goal lead with 10 minutes to go. For some reason that stands out.

Habs always look good on paper to their fans at beginning of season.
It’s always going to be their season too.
You’ll see, this year will be different.
Just ask them, they’ll tell you... 😂

Go Bruins! 😎
Hey were not as bad as Leafs fans this time of year.
Ask them, they have won the cup and no point playing games :p

Besides hard to take bruins fans too seriously,
I mean helmets always been on a little to tight :LOL:

5 days away from start of season,
Dallas season has been helded up
because of 6 reported cases.
Its going to be tough if teams and players
don't take this serious.


I think it should be like world Jr.s
they started tournament with 14 players,
because they had players in quarantine.
Put who you can on ice and if can't ice a team you
forfeit game. this will keep things moving along :)

And NHL teams wouldn’t have the roster restrictions the Juniors faced. Will be fresh faces in lineups COVID or no COVID anyway.

SportsNet has their free fantasy pool up now. Fun little challenge by yourself or create a group. Do not see the NHL Hat Trick challenge one yet. That one is cool too where you get three daily questions like will someone score, which team will win or how many goals for example. Get all three right and a hat trick is awarded. Points add up over time. We have a household battle every year and a group at work for fun in each.

If anyone is familiar with leafs announcer Joe Bowen he did the play by play last night. It was entertaining just to hear him do the calls. Hope he does more.
I can't watch most Leafs games on TV, they act like only one team is playing,
very hard to listen to. I know how teams are always bias, but Leaf games are
crazy over the top.

Sure it isn’t the Habs ? Sounds like you’re listening to Dick Irvin.
Montreal is my team, but when they paly Toronto the broadcast is not good,
look at sports nets reporting, is this a surprise.

Even Bostons Broadcast is better to listen too.


Normally I turn the sound off and just watch the game.
If I am alone.

You could always watch Hockey Night in Canada on the Punjabi channel. The commentators are pretty animated, even if you can’t understand them.

Actually, you should watch Montreal on Radio Canada.
There you would really see a broadcast that is one sided.
For those Quebecois commentators, There is only One team.
