Is it time for hockey yet?

Yes, I'm still alive and well. I haven't posted anything since Joe Sakic re-signed with the Avs and for that, I apologize.

Shortly after the signing, I was in such a good mood that I went out and bought a new toy and that usurped a lot of my time. Well, that plus I do have a job where my employers expect me to contribute. How unreasonable is that?!

However with rookie and training camps about to get fired up, I'm feeling the burn. The jets have ignited - no, not those Jets - and I'm almost in full-on hockey mode - much to the chagrin of my better half.

Today, Greg Wyshnyski over at Puck Daddy has put up his season preview of the Colorado Avalanche. I'll be giving that a good read once I get home tonight but if you don't follow Puck Daddy - and you really should - check it out yourself, if only for the studly Joe Sakic photo he found.

Also, Jibble is having a good debate with thedoctor over the love-it-or-hate-it idea of shootouts deciding games. I'm siding with Jib on this one. I have no problem with ties and don't believe points should be aswered based on an individual skills competition.

Oh, and don't forget that NHL 2K9 and NHL '09 are coming out soon. Actually if memory serves, both are due out tomorrow.

And nothing gets you excited about about hockey like firing up a video game, creating your own player and setting him on kill-and-destroy mode against Dion Phaneuf.

Do they have that mode yet?
