Hockey is back!

NHL hockey is back, and now I can watch it on OLN now, instead of hoping for the smattering of games on ESPN. Better play by play commentary too. It's no Hockey Night in Canada, but it'll do. Now if only they could show more than two games a week...

This year there are a few new rules that I'm trying to decide if I like. The new shoot-out rule for tie games I think will make things interesting. I've always found shootouts to be exciting. Personally I'd like to see the NHL go to the wider rink size used in international hockey. I think the wider rink makes for more interesting play.
