For those of you placing Minnesota last (which is everyone but me), just letting you know that they did add quite a few really good players (including star Pavol Demitra) this off season. They could end up this year's New York Rangers where they try to buy their team and they end up falling flat on their face, but I really don't think so. There's a chance they could be one of the best teams this year.

Here's a prediction for you all. I predict the winner of the Presidents Cup for best regular season record won't make it to the Stanley Cup Finals!

The Northwest division is weak this year, so they could possibly reach 3rd or 4th instead of 5th. Colorado and Edmonton are definatley a lot weaker. IMO, Minnesota w/ Demitra still does not equal Edmonton or Colorado.

* - my favorites to win the Stanley Cup
! - teams to watch for in the 2006-07 season.

BTW, I'd rather see Carolina win than some city likeMontreal, Ottawa or Toronto, where their fans are very arrogant. :) Not to mention they're a HELL of a team - they earned that Stanley Cup last year! In fact, Canada has some of the most arrogant hockey fans, I have seen from posters on TSN.ca who have been to Buffalo for Sens, Habs, or Leafs games.

Though this year, I need a bit of time away from Buffalo and the Golden Horseshoe, and go to where I am more appreciated, so I'm mainly gonna focus on the DETROIT RED WINGS this year. They've got HASEK back! :) LET'S GO RED WINGS!

so what makes everyone believe that Vancity will fail so badly?
they got rid of BURT ( losser ) and Cloutier ( * choke ) , got Roberto ( vezina worthy ) Willie Mitchell ( future Hatcher? ) they still have Salo and Ohlund and Nuslund and Morrison and the Twins .
Must I go on ?

At any rate they will do batter the last thats for sure.

They died and went to heaven, it will be a day in INFAMY if the Leafs ever won the Stanley Cup. But there's nothing to worry about, cause IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN EVER!

Let's GO RED WINGS, SABRES, PENGUINS, and HURRICANES!

The Leafs season and where they will end up larely depends on how well the gamble on Raycroft goes. If he is excellent or even average the Leafs will probably finish higher then what most of you are ranking them at, however if he ends up sucking bad or is worse then average then yea it will all be over for them before it even started.

Islanders Sign DiPietro for 15-Years, $67.5 Million (Update1)

By Larry DiTore

Sept. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The New York Islanders signed goaltender Rick DiPietro to a 15-year, $67.5 million contract, the longest deal in National Hockey League history.

DiPietro, the first goalie ever chosen as a top overall pick when the Islanders took him in the 2000 draft, will make $4.5 million in each of the 15 seasons and the deal is guaranteed, said his agent, Paul Krepelka.

DiPietro, who turns 25 next week, would be 40 years old and playing during the 2020-2021 season if he stays the length of the contract.

``He wanted to be on Long Island for the rest of his career,'' Islanders owner Charles Wang said at a press conference.

The contract is a record for the NHL, eclipsing the 10- year, $87.5 million deal the Islanders gave center Alexei Yashin in 2001. It's the second longest in the history of major North American sports behind the 25-year, $25 million agreement Magic Johnson signed with the National Basketball Association's Los Angeles Lakers in 1981, said Newsday, which first reported the terms of the agreement.

The signing is the first major move for the Islanders under General Manager Garth Snow, the team's former goalie. Snow took over when Neil Smith was fired after just six weeks on the job because he clashed with members of the front office.

``It's refreshing that a cornerstone of our team wanted to be an Islander for the rest of his career,'' Snow said.

DiPietro's $4.5 million salary will rank eighth among the 30 NHL teams' goalies. Chicago's Nikolai Khabibulin will be the league's highest-paid goalie this season at $6.75 million.

DiPietro had a 30-24-5 record with a 3.02 goals-against average in 63 games last season as the Islanders finished in fourth place in the Eastern Conference's five-team Atlantic Division.
