Sure is nice to be undefeated, Kariya/Sullivan is one hell of a duo so far!

Wings spanked the Kings last nite.  My girlfriend's first hockey game and the Wings win, very cool.  We sat around a bunch of Wings fans so it was great.

Goodbye, Mr. Hull.   :'(

I'm sure a few more will follow you by the end of the year...  :(

Very, very sad to see Brett Hull retire.  Far and away he has been my favorite player and was in my opinion the best thing that hockey had going for it the past 15 years.  Wonderful goal scorer and the most entertaining athlete I've ever seen.

You will be missed Mr. Hull, thank you for the wonderful memories that I will always cherish!

 :P

That was crazy news that he had retired.  I turned on the Wings broadcast just in time to see Hullie at the podium announcing it.  Pretty sad.  If not for a lost season, he'd still be playing and chasing Gordie.

I agree.  The year off, as well as the changes in the league resulted in his retirment this season...  He still had one hell of a career.  Crazy news, and a let down... he will truly be missed.

I'm thinking Lemieux's done after this season too...  Not that he doesn't have it in him obviously, but I think he's really wanting to get out and be with his family.  Though the rules changes, if this holds, is maybe enough to keep him in it...  I dunno.  It's what he's wanted for ages.

I think the lockout turned out to be a good thing for Sakic. He had been playing hurt a lot over the last few years and was having a hard time staying healthy. He said that with the year off he feels like he is in the best shape he has been in and has a few years left in him, which is great cause I'm not ready to see him retire too.

I think Hull could have stuck it out and had a decent season, but not by the standards he sets for himself.  He could have contributed and maybe hit 20-25 goals, but I don't think he could have hit 70 or more points like he is used to doing.  Maybe about 40-50 points.  And the Coyotes are just a bad team... he needs talent at his age on his line to support him.  If he was still on Detroit, I think he would have finished this season and maybe played next  year too.

Lemieux is probably done after this season... I'd like to see Sakic play a little longer too.

 :P

Wings win in OT to improve to 6-1.  Loving these new rules.   ;D

I wish Hull was still with the Wings.  He'd still be playing!

A big night here in Edmonton as Wayne Gretzky makes his first appearance here as the Coyotes' coach. To top it off, there are paying tribute to #7 Paul Coffey as they retire his jersey at this sold out game. Will Mark Messier show up, what will Wayne have in store for Paul? Have to wait till the news comes on.  :-\

Coffey played 21 seasons in the NHL, winning four Stanley Cups and three Norris trophies as one of the best defensemen in league history. His 209 goals, 460 assists and 669 points with Edmonton are all good for fifth on the team's all-time lists.

Coffey's number will be the fifth retired by Edmonton, joining Al Hamilton #3, Jari Kurri #17, Grant Fuhr #31 and Gretzky #99.

Damn, just reading those names brings back a lot of memories of the dynasty years.  8)

The boys are back in town!  :)

Wish I was there to see this.  :'(
