The new NHL season has started! It was great fun watching the preseason games. It's always interesting to watch young players trying to earn a spot in the line up. It's also fun to watch veterans mesh with new teammates.
I find it so pleasurable to watch new players develop into higher caliber players. No matter how successful they were at the junior level, there's still room for improvement. How players gain muscle mass and strength, for some reason, sparks my curiousity. It's inspiring. It's also fun to watch a player swing (for lack of a better word) his stick and miss the puck. That's not something you see everyday once the real season starts. :)
What was most surprising, though, was how veteran player Bill Guerin was not signed to PHI. Interesting...
So, as the new season starts.....GO WINGS!!!!!!!!!!!! There was talk about what number Mike Modano would wear. He was number 9 with the Stars for all those years. 9 is retired by the Wings...it belongs to Gordie Howe. 19 is retired...it belongs to Steve Yzerman. So...Mike Modano's number is ..90. Cool..:)
Once again....GO WINGS!!!!
