    The Lightning are fantastic

    It makes me smile that the Canadian’s must be so pissed that the best team in hockey, and semi dynasty is in Florida

    Well it's about as long as an NBA halftime so that's why I was calling it a halftime haha. But ya intermission is a better description since there's three periods.

    I really do love the flow of the game. It's a nice change from the NBA where the refs like to call everything.

    Yep. I keep trying to tell people that if Portland had a team people would enjoy it more than the Blazers. IN PERSON IS AMAZING

    I know the Winter Hawks are fun to watch. I don’t know the game well enough to really make judgments but I agree it’s exciting and fun to watch.

    Got a question--in the net there's obviously a camera but what is below the camera there? Is it like a radar detector or something?

    The Hawks are a blast. The speed and skill difference is amazing. WHL 16-20 year olds compared to full grown men. Like watching high school and college basketball skill compared to NBA skill

    The problem with hockey is TV doesn't do it justice. It really doesn't.
    The size, power, agility, skill, and SPEED doesn't come through the set.
    I think it is the best of the sports, and truly believe hockey players are the best athletes.
    I lived in Denver when the Avs won The Cup in 2001. My alltime favorite sports team.
    The Stanley Cup is the hardest of all trophies to win. Grueling. Emotional.
