Yeah, making sales fears all the more anxiety-driving for the fans here, haha.
There are of course already the maroons here speculating on major playoff runs and stuff but it's good to see the local casters are keeping the fans in check on that stuff... Way too early to even make predictions that they could squeak into the running I think, but it's nice seeing a team that CAN click if they work at it... And in areas they really lacked last year. The goaltending thing still bothers me, but our defense is definitely getting more physical as well as jumping into the O plays a bit more...
I'm picking up some tickets hopefully soon to see a game. I don't want to miss a chance to see Staal, Malkin and Crosby all on the ice together at their ages right now... I just hope I don't curse them as they have worse records when I show up at games it seems.
I always feel somehow that it's me then... That's the old hockey superstitions coming out in me I guess, haha.
I seriously have been having fun. I had fun last year but with obvious disappointments... This year though it's not like I am waiting for the other shoe to drop and the team to just fold in on itself in terrible losses night-after-night. There seems to be hope even in the games we're behind by a couple. That makes watching hockey a much more positive experience for me, hah.
